Idiocracy will make people uglier, too

Thought-provoking article. http://www.socialmatter.net/2014/08/22/beauty-bubble/

The result of this confluence of factors is simple:  The current amount of beauty is a bubble, it will pop, and the world will get uglier.  There are cynics who would say that with our government subsidized high carbohydrate diets and sluts with short hairdos and tattoos aplenty, the peak of our beauty bubble is already in our rearview mirror.  They may have a point.

Facts: beauty is rare (minority) and proportionately esteemed, beauty is based in fertility cues and lead to objectively better outcomes on all good measures, European fertility is infamously sub-replacement thanks to feminism. We acquired the term “good-looking” from the association between handsomeness and civilized behaviour.

As earlier;

But not so fast.  Blue-eyed blondes with heart shaped asses are not an infinite largesse bestowed upon us by a higher power.  We are all of woman borne, and if you understand heredity you understand that beautiful girls must, on average, have mothers that were also beautiful.  That is to say, to keep this current beauty spigot flowing the world needs beautiful women to have daughters.

Nature is self-correcting. The slappers, as we call them here, likely gained those looks by genetic randomness their improper behaviour doesn’t support, since the most beautiful women tend to be least promiscuous, as they can demand commitment from men and need not lure them in with sex as an easy bait. However, they are smart enough to use this value to lock down a good man while in low notch numbers. Sluts hate them for this, they get the big prize, so the sluts try to argue their experiences of being used up like a sex toy were positive.

I know it’s anecdotal, but I’ve seen most sluts are 4-6, tops. I am being kind with that estimate.

The article is correct, there will be far fewer beautiful people in the future, male and female. Good-looking men are cautious with contraception and are putting off conceiving too, perhaps indefinitely. There are no rewards for the old family model. On an infinite timeline? A recursion.

Thousands of winters of scarce, sparse prey and harsh terrain culled a significant percentage of men.

This would probably be a few recessions without welfare keeping the r-type brats in iPhones. More and more people, competing against fewer and fewer beautiful people (and notice the right-wing tends to be hotter than the left? no coincidence). The effect is threefold: 1. ugly women try to promote ugliness as a new standard. 2. most men go without and stay at home with porn. 3. beautiful people interbreed, creating an aristocracy, as they make more money, keeping child N small because they’re usually k-types. Or as point three is known now “growing income inequality”.

The ugly women went barren and beauty flourished.

Notice these strong, independent women aren’t going to sperm banks en masse? Seems men aren’t so replaceable. They can’t chase the Government if their welfare check stops. Children are a burden to them.

By decoupling sex and reproduction, it is selecting for those who really want kids.  Will beauty survive?  We’ll have to wait and see.

I believe it will, but it will take a long time to recover and lessons will be learnt e.g. feminism is for ugly women to drag down pretty ones, while faking the signs of the pretty and denying the very existence of pretty.

And what of designer babies? No one, and I mean, NO ONE, will choose ugly ones. We’ll soon find there’s a beauty standard to white, blue-eyed and physically fit. The Viking marauders chose to rape the best and stab the rest, what we see in modernity is the fruit of their eugenic process, and extremes of cold in Northern Europe are a great survival test for good genes.

Practical Deconstructions

Highly logical. I do something similar. If _a_, then _c_ because _b_. Assuming each link in the chain is correct, it cannot be refuted.

The point of the guide is to provide an onslaught of material efficiently packaged. Each one of these modules can be expanded out into multiple essays—books, even, but they’re sufficient for brutal effectiveness. Apply liberally. Some of them are more serious than others. Some are just plain ridiculous—don’t begrudge me my fun….

In other words, you can’t deconstruct on a ‘perfectly accurate level’ if they can’t comprehend what it is you’re deconstructing because they don’t fully comprehend their own ideology.

I’d compare it to a verbal sparring of ideological entrapment.
You win when you can say “Aha!”

Examples, my favourites;

-Seek admission: Marriage has always been heterosexual Point out: Homosexuals trying to participate in the institution of marriage Conclusion: This is cultural appropriation, and it is problematic.

-Seem admission: Genetics determines height, eye color, predisposition to diseases, and predisposition to mental illnesses (gosh, this might be a lot to ask for) Point out: Why think genetics is only implicated below the shoulders? Conclusion: Genetics determines intelligence.

-Seek admission: Animals can be bred for different attributes. That’s how we have different dog breeds, for example Point out: Humans are animals Conclusion: Humans can be bred for different attributes.

-Seek admission: Sexuality, like homosexuality, is inborn, and so it’s okay Point out: Pedophilia is sexuality Conclusion: Pedophilia is inborn, and so it’s okay.

-Seek admission: High suicide rate among homosexuals Point out: Other groups with far worse persecution and societal receipt of hatred don’t have high suicide rates Conclusion: Homosexuals really are weak and mentally fragile.

-Seek admission: Gender is totally fluid Point out: You cannot go from homosexual to heterosexual Conclusion: Either gender is not fluid, or you can go from homosexual to heterosexual.

-Seek admission: Gentrification is really bad because it disrupts culture Point out: Third world immigration disrupts culture Conclusion: Third world immigration is really bad.

-Seek admission: Gays are a persecuted minority with little power Point out: Gays are one of the highest income demographics on the planet Conclusion: Someone is fucking lying.

-Seek admission: Feminism as we know it arose out of western culture Point out: Immigration will gradually eliminate western culture Conclusion: Immigration will gradually eliminate feminism.

Paper: The Paradox of Declining Female Happiness

http://www.nber.org/papers/w14969.pdf

The more feminist policies and lifestyles introduced, the more unhappy the women.

Both men and women in the U.S. have faced some other challenging societal trends in the past 30 years as well. While the male-female wage gap converged over this period, income inequality rose sharply through the 1980s and has continued to rise, albeit more slowly, in recent decades. Moreover, the real wages of many men fell during much of this period. In particular, real wages for men with less than a college degree fell from 1979-1995 (Autor, Katz, & Kearney, 2008). Many households experienced only moderate growth in household income, with those in the bottom half of the income distribution experiencing real growth of less than 0.5% a year from 1973 to 2005 (Goldin and Katz, 2007) and much of this increase was due to the additional earnings of wives. Along with this rise in income inequality has come concerns about increasing income volatility, and a more general concern about households bearing more health and retirement risk (Hacker, 2007). While these trends have impacted both men and women, it is possible that the effect of these trends on happiness has differed by gender.

Even if women were made unambiguously better off throughout this period, a richer consideration of the psychology behind happiness might suggest that greater gender equality may lead to a fall in measured well-being. For example, if happiness is assessed relative to outcomes for one’s reference group, then greater equality may have led more women to compare their outcomes to those of the men around them. In turn, women might find their relative position lower than when their reference group included only women. This change in the reference group may make women worse off or it may simply represent a change in their reporting behavior. An alternative form of reference dependent preferences relates well-being to whether or not expectations are met. If the women’s movement raised women’s expectations faster than society was able to meet them, they would be more likely to be disappointed by their actual experienced lives. As women’s expectations move into alignment with their experiences this decline in happiness may reverse. A further alternative suggests that happiness may be driven by good news about lifetime utility (Kimball & Willis, 2006) . Under this view, the salience of the women’s movement fuelled elation in the 1970s that has dissipated in the ensuing years. …

Our contribution in this paper is to carefully document trends over several decades in subjective well-being by gender in the United States and other industrialized countries, collecting evidence across a wide array of datasets covering various demographic groups, time periods, countries, and measures of subjective well-being. …

However, the relative declines found for Europe and the US lie within a 95% confidence interval of 125 of the 147 we countries we examine.

 

CDC cover-up MMR vaccine-autism 2004 link story

http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2014/08/28/researcher-says-cdc-chose-to-cover-up-data-linking-autism-with-vaccines-but-theres-more-to-the-story/

A study published earlier this month re-analyzing data put out by the CDC in 2004, claims to have found a statistically significant association between autism and the age at which the measles, mumps and rubella vaccine is given to infant African-American boys. 

  • A so-called “whistleblower” alleged that the CDC covered up this data and chose to focus the 2004 study on other findings, ignoring this one. 
  • Since this more recent study claiming to associate an increased risk of autism after vaccination, more information about the study author, the whistleblower and the CDC’s original intent has come to light.
  • This more recent study was also removed from the journal, which cited ”serious concerns about the validity of its conclusions.”
  • Others criticized the study and the allegations of a CDC cover-up as well. 

A lot of money in this. Billions and Bill Gates.
If it truly was nothing, as they claim a decade after they hoped no one would ever find out, and they were being scientific as their public duty requires, they wouldn’t have hidden this finding. Instead, they buried it. The rationale to a scientist is clear: they didn’t want follow-up studies.

Here’s the study archived;

Background

A significant number of children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder suffer a loss of previously-acquired skills, suggesting neurodegeneration or a type of progressive encephalopathy with an etiological basis occurring after birth. The purpose of this study is to investigate the effectof the age at which children got their first Measles-Mumps-Rubella (MMR) vaccine on autism incidence. This is a reanalysis of the data set, obtained from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Protection (CDC), used for the Destefano et al. 2004 publication on the timing of the first MMR vaccine and autism diagnoses.

Methods

The author embarked on the present study to evaluate whether a relationship exists between child age when the first MMR vaccine was administered among cases diagnosed with autism and controls born between 1986 through 1993 among school children in metropolitan Atlanta. The Pearson’s chi-squared method was used to assess relative risks of receiving an autism diagnosis within the total cohort as well as among different race and gender categories.

Results

When comparing cases and controls receiving their first MMR vaccine before and after 36 months of age, there was a statistically significant increase in autism cases specifically among African American males who received the first MMR prior to 36 months of age. Relative risks for males in general and African American males were 1.69 (p=0.0138) and 3.36 (p=0.0019), respectively. Additionally, African American males showed an odds ratio of 1.73 (p=0.0200) for autism cases in children receiving their first MMR vaccine prior to 24 months of age versus 24 months of age and thereafter.

Conclusions

The present study provides new epidemiologic evidence showing that African American males receiving the MMR vaccine prior to 24 months of age or 36 months of age are more likely to receive an autism diagnosis.

 

Forbes: Are Stocks heading for a Crash?

http://www.forbes.com/sites/jessecolombo/2014/08/27/are-stocks-heading-for-a-crash-this-fall/

At the start of last month, I published a piece in which I showed twenty-three charts that I believe prove that the U.S. stock market is experiencing a classic speculative bubble that will end in a crash or severe bear market….

As we head into the fall – a historically weak season for stocks – it is a good time to reiterate the need for caution as stocks trade near all-time highs. Some of history’s worst stock market crashes, including the crash of 1929, 1987, and 2008, occurred in September and October after rallying in the spring or summer. I must emphasize that I am not actually predicting a crash this fall (thought it certainly could happen), but rather discussing the risks and potential sell-off catalysts to be aware of…..

Interesting read.
