Socialists in science trying to avoid being scientific

http://quillette.com/2017/07/06/social-sciences-undergoing-purity-spiral/

You picked the wrong fucking field to have feelings.
Especially if those feelings involve censorship of facts you disagree with.
Do you know how many people continue to object to evolution?
Still true. We can see a fetus undergo the stages of evolution in real time.
It’ll never not be true.
We’ve found plenty of Missing Links, and Creationists move the goalposts.
That’s crazy, like suppressing crime and IQ data.

Scientism isn’t real, whatever your false idols tell you. They’re false by nature.

Nurture, as you call it, is mostly measurement error.

You are wrong in MATHS.

Only now, at the end, do they understand.

The multicultural experiment (official media term) was always going to fail because their core premise was that human nature itself could be controlled and experimentally manipulated.

Yeah… people rebel against that.

And it was just colonialism in reverse, instead of going to the poor people to feel superior (missions), they come crawling to you.

“What’s interesting about Haidt’s alternative interpretation of the liberal progress narrative is that he mentions two elements central to the narrative—private property and nations. And what has happened to a large extent is that as the failures of communism have become increasingly apparent many on the left—including social scientists—have shifted their activism away from opposing private property and towards other aspects, for example globalism.”

There’s no such thing as globalism, it’s a void of values. Like there’s no one language, a single language would be the starting point.
Empires unite nations, that’s why the British Empire taught everyone English.
It’s the best language, so you’re still using it.
Globalization has failed because the East has outcompeted the West. A world without white people will not be dumb enough to hand the enemy in various wars your very factories for slightly cheaper Nikes.
In real terms, they bred more, we paid for it and called it ‘aid’ and the future belongs to them barring famine.
Accept your death began with manufacturing. You gave away future prosperity, that’s gonna affect the birth rates.

“But how do we know a similarly disastrous thing is not going to happen with globalism as happened with communism? What if some form of national and ethnic affiliation is a deep-seated part of human nature, and that trying to forcefully suppress it will eventually lead to a disastrous counter-reaction? What if nations don’t create conflict, but alleviate it? What if a decentralised structure is the best way for human society to function?”

…If?

IF.

jesus my sides

genophilia is a dictionary word

ingroup preference is a well-studied phenomena

genetic diaspora exist, ask HBD chick

they’re so close to the pendulum of r/K, aren’t they?

nations formed of genetic tribes to alleviate conflict when weaponry advanced and made mass slaughter possible but, duh, undesirable, ask a forensic anthro or any evo biologist

hell, ask sacred cow Dawkins if supranationalism, the true name for globalism, is even genetically possible
chimps can’t do it, softy peaceable chimpanzee frequently murder one another for literally no reason than territory
it’s been filmed, I’ve seen it

“What if the type of mass-scale immigration

dictionary definition of invasion met but ok

even without weapons, you can ‘rape’ a nation’s women and state coffers (“economic migrants” literally invaders) and that is their intention

search weapons cache European mosque or something like it
happens all over
just the ones we find

currently occurring in Europe,

meanwhile, Christian genocide in MENA too

Look! A distraction!

containing relatively large amounts of people with different nationalities, cultures, and religions, is going against some of the core features of human nature?

Show me one place multiculturalism in history hasn’t involved a genocide at some point.
ONE.
Look up Neanderthals, it’s now in our blood because it’s the reason we’re here and they’re not.

Maybe it isn’t, but if it is, do we have to wait until after the fact to say ‘well, globalism doesn’t work’, as we did with communism? Surely there is a better way.”

Picking up a fucking history book?

The burden of proof was on the pushers. They never did. Not even in their neighbourhoods or schools. The People never consented. When asked (see Brexit), they reject it.

Like the Unis in general, the social sciences only have a shit reputation now liberals are running it.

Coincidence, this is not.

The End of Science

West Hunter

John Horgan believes that research on race and IQ should be banned, and that having university IRBs veto such research would be a reasonable way of doing so. There are problems with this idea. Not just that freedom of enquiry is a thing of value, and that John, if given the chance, would exchange his soul for a pile of dung – and be right to do so. No, enforcement of this policy entails technical difficulties. For one thing, essentially all IRBs already try to ban such research, but they don’t do a very good job, because they don’t know enough about the subject. Probably nobody does. For example, not so long ago people felt free to speculate that modern humans might have picked a few useful alleles from Neanderthals – including ones that increased intelligence. That was before it was found that there is substantial Neanderthal admixture only in…

What does Marx have to do with China?

Thought experiment: What would Marx say?

Vague shitpost of the obvious incoming.


In an all-white society, he was right to fixate on class because race wasn’t a factor.
Still, race has become too burdensome as a factor, people forget class. The Left aren’t wrong to bring it up, merely to blame it for everything. Class isn’t even blank slate, that’s just the way economists lie about it to deny historic responsibility from their field. Bubbles aren’t natural, unless you mean the soap kind. They are man-made – by crooks.
Marx was right that the middle class have to die. What he missed is that middle-class ideas have to die. That would swiftly solve the problem of the chattering class.
There’s no middle-class without a separate identity to carve, an axe to grind, an other to oppress or uplift, in an appeasement display to prevent their own demise or consolidate their position against same-race competition.
The superpower is in the production. During the British Empire, the factories were here, since the Industrial Revolution. Then America, and they had two profitable wars for the right people. Now, China runs the world. The Chinese aren’t being told to learn English, the West is being told to learn Mandarin. The Chinese have enslaved their own people to spread by immigration, to reach by financial influence and to conquer the West in the long-run. Outbreeding us also outweighs in terms of war. They can afford to lose a billion, we can’t lose a fifth of that without going extinct. The West ought to await Malthus with glee.
Mother Russia will always come up smelling of roses, you never mess with Mother Russia. The Chinese under-estimate the Russian, they don’t understand the psychology. It’s passive, it isn’t aggressive, and it settles very well.
Where are the factories? Where are the workers? Where are the means of production? You might say, They never won a war! But they won. They won something and something real. Further, the US never beat the British, not in real terms. Always one step forward, three back.
The USA has never won a war. Look how independence is going. Do you really think the mass immigration from Africa would’ve happened back then under British rule? Neither of those world wars were necessary.
China won the spoils of all that bloodshed with patience and cheap toys. I think it might be Christmas that killed the Christian. Perhaps the Puritans were right.
However, the consent of the Western worker is a fickle thing. The parasite load of the global economy is reaching tipping point thanks to demographic shifts. Really, it’s a tidal wave and you need to keep a weather eye on the horizon to know when to move. The gene pool is full of mud and antibiotic resistant disease.
Nations have been sold out for less short-term gain.
The financial systems rely on worker consent. Marx correctly pointed out that when they realize the game is up, there are no more gibs and no retirement…. what else is left but rebellion? Slaves rebel.
Statist reward incentives are parasitic on the very people who produce them. I won’t sit here grinding on an old wheel. Gen Y and Z will be fascinating to watch as this plays out. Brainwashed from nursery.
I wanted to point out these basic, salient arrangements.
It’s everybody’s problem.
This isn’t a white issue, but whites do appear to be the golden goose – at least in terms of charity ‘aid’.
I’ve said before, you can’t have white levels of prosperity with fewer white people in society.
Resources are contracting because population is expanding past the elastic.
It’s going to snap.
The sustainable nutjobs lose traction because they never discuss the eugenic need for population control. They do on any other species. By comparison, the UN pretends this will happen magically. Humans are a locust swarm on this planet, but not all humans. #NotAllHumans
The common sense necessity to acknowledge this is missing thanks to vice and corruption, the outcome. The academics expect gold-plated pensions. The politicians want to be voted back in. The economists want grants. The capitalists want fatter margins. The same finite resources divided between a sustainable, reduced population (commonly est. 1 billion, possibly up to 2) will result in instant prosperity. Marx believed that reducing the working-class was impossible, since the rich would suffer but- what if the poor don’t work? Marx is ridiculous for many reasons, but not so much as his followers who believe nothing has changed in almost a century and a half. When practically everything has changed and they also brag about this ‘progress’… cognitive dissonance is a brain cancer, kids.
For the poor to be better off, most of the population has to go. The majority isn’t Rich.
Squeezing the rich would only work a few years… they’d stop producing.
Demographics. Economics is an application, either correct or incorrect. Beyond demographics, there isn’t much to say. Economists are not social scientists*. They don’t care about people. They will screw people to get numbers. Economists would be run out of any medieval town, a saner time. They usually sell Get Rich(er) Quick – this is afforded by a broken currency system and fractional reserve leprechaun money.


There isn’t One solution. There are many. Like a jigsaw. Many problems.
Maybe something like 75% have a similar cause, but they don’t all have the same solution.
People don’t want to look because not only does it 1. suck to live through something you don’t deserve, but 2. the Problem is huge and 3. there are too many details to discuss solutions at this stage of decline. Where’s the will?

*Could we also stop asking engineers and physicists about social science problems? Their opinions are crap. Ask a 5yo.

Also, social scientists are not preachers. Their word isn’t gospel. Neither is a preachers, come to think.

What does Bill Nye, a children’s show presenter, know about how to bring down national debt?
What does Token Black Tyson know about humanities education?
What does ..actually, there aren’t any celebrity female scientists, are there?

We need SOLUTIONS.

A ‘final solution’ won’t fix the social system or the hegemonic cultural paradigm. Yes, you’re very edgy, please move and let the grown-ups talk.

Look at the food security of Asia if you want a blackpill LOL, especially the much-vaunted SE and China (our economic superior). It hasn’t occurred to a lot of  these ‘redpills’ that Asia has only been historically strong because the West is all-time weak. Superpowers are on a see-saw kind of setup.

I think Africa will invade Asia, personally, based on land bridges and farmland.

Aid workers are not saints, they are the devil in a halo.
History will view them as scum, vermin, who encouraged Mass rape, disease and famine.
All for the glory of their pride.

They knew this was coming. They simply don’t care. Look up the disaster of Millennium villages. They wanted their bribe money, free 4x4s, 5* hotels and plenty of brown children to rape.

Google ‘UN rape scandal’ sometime.

the r in Refugees Welcome signs + funnies

Look at the facial expression in the Bible quote. That’s an atheist going to Hell for blasphemy.

Spliced with photo of actual ‘refugees’. A picture is worth a thousand words.

Hopefully the Manchester attack, nail-bombing little girls has redpilled these feminists.
Somehow I doubt it. This is the one that started it all.

This one in particular triggers me, the way to kill it is with apathy: So?

So was Jack the Ripper, so was Hitler, so is Trump. Tired of whataboutism.

“they are us, we are them”

true

Meanwhile, actual refugees

Yeah, let’s not save these people waving round the white flag of Christendom.

Are they welcome in YOUR home? Why not?

JK Rowling has yet to take in any ‘refugees’ that someone offered to pay to fly to her homes!

She is irrelevant. Like…

Emma Watson hasn’t spent a night in the Calais camp alone, without security.

Locks are racist! No borders? No walls! Let’s all live in pagodas! 

Now a series of triggering memes and funnies.

It’s been a while. 120 funnies. Some repeats. A few serious.

about as real as her hair

Going by her Coco the Clown makeup, I think they do.

The People do not consent to open borders. The native people.

Everyone into Lord of the Rings.

All harassment is bad but sexual harassment is the worst.
It’s the First World, fucking act like it.
Recently, a German woman was beaten by a ‘migrant’, because she told him not to call her a bitch.

Tesla’s expression, my fucking sides.

He never said that but yes. Fitness is in adaptation.

Just like consciousness. You can’t touch it or test it. It’s unfalsifiable. It’s the scientific concept of spirit.
It isn’t scientific though.

Sexual orientation theory is BS. There’s only behaviour – which hole is your goal?

SJW’s playbook.

The alt-lite treats the J-word as their N.

And strange brown men on the street.

The temporary alliance of SJWs and Muslims is simple: the sexually entitled support the sexually entitled.
Also take down White Man but obviously, SJWs aren’t white or men, typically.

7 issues with the modern academia calling itself Science

http://www.vox.com/2016/7/14/12016710/science-challeges-research-funding-peer-review-process

science is a process, not a system of employ

why confused what wtf

why do they keep acting as if the power structure is the only science?

Newton self-published and Tesla went to VCs, screw them

Note: no mention of political bias.

Uhuh. O.K.

Why is scientism a problem? The ‘Appeal to Data’

I lurk on comment threads to get a feel for what is trending in the noosphere and I find some gems. Sometimes I get a bit stalkerish in my fervor for curating opinions.
I was reading a science article and I was way, way down, losing hope and I saw this.
I’ve been wanting to cover this topic for a while, I didn’t know what to call it but I felt I needed an example to mock first, since it’s easier to pull that apart than a possible strawman.

Thank you, Hobbesian________, I have a new name for this: “The Appeal to Data

He hasn’t read much of his namesake, why am I not surprised?

A man’s conscience and his judgment is the same thing; and as the judgment, so also the conscience, may be erroneous. ~ Hobbes

I was serious about the mocking part.

scientism appeal to data

You could say that about anything: What would be the point in interviewing Richard Dawkins, the Bible speaks for itself? What would be the point in interviewing climate skeptics, the UN papers speak for themselves? Why trust the Government on vaccines, the ingredients list speaks for itself?

Muh “speaks for itself” is the new “isn’t it obvious?” No, dipshit, or there wouldn’t be a discussion. That’s kinda the point when it comes to any scientific question, the debate never ends, nobody will pack up their bags and go home. We’ll just sort of come to a point of consensus naturally and lose momentum, like an emergent phenomena as the evidence comes in (from both sides). Until the paradigm shift, anon!
Humanities isn’t social science. Liberal arts isn’t a science. Social science is a science because it follows the Scientific Method. Merely, it applies the method to humans (social animal hence society). There are textbooks on this written for children. This is basic.

It’s a combination of appeal to popularity, and a subtle ad hominem that’s intended to outgroup you as inferior and thus, not worth listening to. It’s a rabbit trick. Look! A hat! 

The atheistkult and other redditfags seem to rely on this IFLS-esque appeal to ‘objective’ authority and clarity when describing nature; that the numbers can’t be faked, or wrong, or that various biases and errors (inc. the huge measurement error) do not exist.

Data isn’t objective because data is a tool used by people. You can flip a coin 100 times, get 100 heads and it doesn’t disprove the other findings. It’s added to them. We call those people using the data in their possession ‘scientists’ and they aren’t using the data, really. They are collecting the data (possession) and interpret the data (moving on to a claim), that is their training and their job, to make claims based on the data (the data is just there to show their workings for replication, like maths classes). We have a label for people who make claims not based on data, but opinion formed prior, a beautiful category is…..;

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Confirmation_bias#Biased_interpretation

Oh look, it’s another bias. SI: You can use totally legitimate data to lie. Anita Sarkeesian does it all the time. She takes a legit study and makes those unsupported claims. You say X, but data says X-1. This is what they mean when they appeal to data, that it’s supposed to be free of false interpretation. Except – all data is interpreted. It’s a human impulse.

You can’t do shit with data itself anyway. Those 100 heads results aren’t going to go anywhere. They’ll stay in a drawer, unpublished. For the researcher: They don’t change the data (unless crooked or naive with poor method design, a priori) and they aren’t meant to influence the data (so many ways under researcher bias), but they are human.

In social science

After the data are collected, bias may be introduced during data interpretation and analysis. For example, in deciding which variables to control in analysis, social scientists often face a trade-off between omitted-variable bias and post-treatment bias.[10]

This is why we need philosophy of science taught in schools.
We learn biology, chemistry and physics but we don’t learn what science is or why all those things are science, let alone how science is actually done. But sure, photosynthesis…..

Identities protected but putting the name of a philosopher in your screen name doesn’t make you smart. They keep doing that (redditfag signature) when it’s a clear appeal to authority, again.

Here is the first result on google for “scientist stock photo”

Sure, I’d trust that guy, who doesn’t even wear goggles. They buy into this, like the memes. Oh Christ, the memes…. 

It’s very Aspie to think all scientists are perfect, morally virtuous men in white lab coats, pristine as their soul, and they’ll never do anything like lie, or cheat for a promotion, or steal grant money, or… I dunno…. fake most of a subject….
http://www.smithsonianmag.com/ist/?next=/science-nature/scientists-replicated-100-psychology-studies-and-fewer-half-got-same-results-180956426/

Statistically, most of a subject. Literally. (Me being topical)

They have some wonderful cognitive dissonance here because they believe experts are liars (I blame Gen X), but the data the experts gather is pure as the Virgin Mary.
The data is sacred! bc Humans are flawed!
Who do you think made the data? ET?
What we see are the actions of a narcissist (they wouldn’t dare lie to me!) who cannot conceive of systemic deception that would persevere against their imagined intellect. Con artists find these people easiest to fool because they have no guard. There is no guard to let down.

As much as I dislike this website, for example the name (isn’t debunking something also a denial? and why is denial/dissent wrong, given Burden of Proof?), there are many statistical fallacies in the public arena, from people who are meant to be defending science like it’s a lady’s virtue:

http://debunkingdenialism.com/2011/11/17/the-top-five-most-annoying-statistical-fallacies/

TLDR: This thing is like that thing because I said so.

http://debunkingdenialism.com/2014/11/10/why-p-values-and-statistical-significance-are-worthless-in-science/

TLDR: p-value fraud is rife.

You could find many things which are statistically significant, for example — and false. This is where correlation/causation truly comes in, the claim is beyond the data e.g. if I find murders spike with ice cream sales, ice cream doesn’t cause murder. The third hidden variable is the heat and the frustration it produces. A good method design will eliminate extraneous variables, and in most social science, they don’t do this. That’s why it can’t be replicated – shitty design. Copying the shitty design just doubles the number of shitty experiments in the world. 

Method design is mostly intuition. Redditfags deny this. They should pick up a book on it, seriously – the first thing you’re told is Make Stuff Up and the rest is just refinement.

The appeal to data is treating a chart of values like the Bible. Yes, I went there.

Torture numbers, and they’ll confess to anything.” – Gregg Easterbrook

Working example: http://blogs.gartner.com/andrea_dimaio/2012/06/12/torturing-the-data-long-enough-will-make-them-confess-anything/

Conclusion: Let’s go with the Appeal to Data. If I ask 100 people whether you are worse than Hitler, and 51 say yes, the data is there. The data is sacrosanct.
It’s an appeal to popularity dressed up in a Halloween lab coat.
