Belief and Moore’s paradox

I saw someone point out that PC is mostly Moore’s paradox denying reality.

In case you want to read on the topic of Moore’s paradox.

“As Alex Byrne (2005) puts the point, our epistemic access to our own beliefs is both “peculiar” and “privileged”.”

I’d relate this to thought-terminating cliche.

Asian creativity a myth

A comment on another blog.
Aside from the fact Asians are the most racist people you’ll ever meet (ask them about Africans, look at how they’re buying up Africa and nobody says a thing) and have the most ingroup preference in the world (hiring, promotions, task-doling), which I don’t blame them for, along with the fact that nobody hates Asians more than other kinds of Asian… they’re an unusual race.

Vygotsky’s Zone of Proximal Development needs a lot of traffic on these topics. Everyone has a range, groups too. Asians cannot be as creative as Europeans and their history bears out why pretty overtly, many of their creatives were mass culled from the farmer population. It’s a myth we can all be 10s on anything when over half IQ is genetic now at least. Asian creativity is either an oxymoron or a laughable myth. 9/10 of their achievements are ripped off something someone else did before, or it’s so old it isn’t index-able information online. However, some Japanese appear to have the Openness to Experience and grit required, personality is rarely accounted for discussing ‘g’ and education. It should be. However, in my extensive experience, Asians are impossible to work with creatively, wanting to bleed anything novel out of a procedure aka The Point. The new makes them nervous. However, they are the most efficient copycats and thieves the world has ever seen. Natural middle managers, can’t lead a troupe of ants to jam. Get everything in writing and don’t trust the fake politeness, they’ll take your credit. They’ll take all of it. Factories ripping people off are the tip of a big iceberg.

Collectivism is a cultural death of creativity, good luck breeding that out! The culture of collectivism must be mentioned, since education is innately Western aka individualistic. You can’t talking cure a donkey into being a horse. Empty status signalling is all they have. Look at their middle-age risk of heart attack, it’s unhealthy for them and Tiger Moms are abusive.They’re like pageant moms or stage school mothers and should be derided as such.

The widespread cheating is the start of it.

Queensberry rules are White and British, the rest of the world doesn’t play fair.

The idea is laughable to them. Asians have their own form of taqiyya but it’s immensely polite.
They’re pretty much critical thinking poison though, the slavish deference to authority means they’re usually 2nd in any fair competition. They know this. That’s why they cheat.
Collectivism is r-selected, Communism and Cultural Marxism are based on empty signalling by vapid people and the easy way to spot those cultures is population and emigration. They want to escape one another.

See Murray’s Human Accomplishment if you want to quibble real history. (What is done, not the talkers).

Asian Immigrants and What No One Mentions Aloud

“often fail to embody the sterling academic credentials they include with their applications, and do not live up to the expectations these universities have for top tier students.
Less delicately put: They cheat.”

We know. We all know. They can’t speak full English, FFS. They can’t reason and inspire the way their personal statement does.

you, an intellectual, might ask: how is this fair to non-Asians?

It isn’t.

To continue my thoughts on college admissions and Asians:

Many people, reading of the clear discrimination against Asians, become all righteous, thinking of those poor, hardworking Asians. Come to America, work hard, and look how the system screws them.

But that reaction ignores the stereotype.

The stereotype, delicately put: first and second generation Chinese, Korean, and Indian Americans, as well as nationals from these countries, often fail to embody the sterling academic credentials they include with their applications, and do not live up to the expectations these universities have for top tier students.

Less delicately put: They cheat. And when they don’t cheat, they game tests in a way utterly incomprehensible to the Western mind, leading to test scores with absolutely zero link to underlying ability. Or both. Or maybe it’s all cheating, and we just don’t know it. Either way, the resumes are functional fraud.

Is it true for…
