Two Letters That Bring Liberalism Crashing Down
- IQ never gets mentioned anymore. Because once you take it into account, the whole edifice of liberal thought comes tumbling down. Once a realistic look at IQ enters the picture, all the talk of how our schools and teachers are failing us looks misguided. All the talk of racism as the explanation for the differences in accomplishment, all the talk of white privilege, all the talk of disparate impact, just look sort of….silly.
As silly as saying that the only reason the men’s weight-lifting records are better than the women’s is because of sexism.
As silly as suggesting that the only reason 64 out of the last 64 finalists in the men’s 100 meter dash at the Olympics have been black is because they had better coaching.
Ignore differences in natural ability, and you’re left with a lot of inexplicable patterns and correlations.
