All around the world, the development of nations correlates pretty well with a population’s average IQ. Therefore, we could designate a ruling caste based on IQ, right, and be better off? Easy enough.
In real life, though, the high IQ upper middle class and above already has great power just by being high status trend-setters congregating in the center of big cities where all the machinery of influence lies.
Yet rather than bringing in an age of enlightened rule, the SWPLs have consistently collaborated against their own people and tried to destroy their nation, from misguided feel-good idealism and putting their short-term gains first.
We need only imagine for a moment what the USA would look like if the yuppie intelligentsia seized total control and enacted their agenda in full.
The USA would become a temperate zone version of Brazil with no borders, no concept of unity, and crushingly low wages. Poverty, strife, and tribal warfare would run rampant. Just like the rest of the third world the SWPL elite would live in walled-off compounds where they would shop at Whole Foods and sip frappuccinos in peace, forgetting the rest of society exists while donating money to Somalia with crocodile tears of signalled virtue streaming down their faces—just like they do already.
Actually, I’m sure they’d ruthlessly “gentrify” any areas they moved into, relying on their armed enforcers to force out anyone who couldn’t be removed by skyrocketing rents so they could have another cute shopping district where they could buy organic dog biscuits for their toy pets.
Total rule by educated urban professionals would have been more violent, unjust, impoverished, and oppressive than Central American dictatorships. Already, they have long since lost the mandate of heaven through their gross negligence and incompetence, a fact even they are becoming dimly aware of as national politics steadily slips out of their control.
Why were they as a group worse at ruling than any Joe Sixpack taken off the street would have been? At least average Joe might not have been actively malicious and contemptuous towards the people he’s ruling.
The first, most obvious flaw, is lack of skin in the game. Rule from provincial capitals encourages disconnection. However smart someone may be, you have to have experience. You can’t become a doctor or a pilot by reading books. Having a culture that spreads equalist propaganda to people who don’t have the experience to know otherwise just makes it even worse and assures terrible leadership and government. Yet, they chose to accept what they were taught without critical thinking and swallowed the scam hook, line, and sinker. This fact is perhaps more significant.
While IQ predicts the performance of population as a whole, it’s clear we need further criteria to determine who should rule. Clearly, personality traits, neurotype, thinking style matter just as much.
A good example is the massive under-performance of East Asian people relative to their IQ and huge populations for many centuries even though they are objectively smarter than Europeans.
Elite US universities have to include special subjective rules to ensure model minority students don’t become a majority. Chinese and upper-caste Indians outcompete whites without too much difficulty. Yet in spite of this, their homelands have been stagnant fiefdoms of foreign powers until recently.
From what I’ve observed, they have the same problem as the SWPL lesser aristocracy. Their high levels of organization and extreme conscientiousness and work ethic makes them the perfect cubicle workers. But they are incapable of independent thought and action.
Every friend I’ve had who’s been in academia says the same things about students from Asia: They cram and memorize stuff for when they need it, but don’t really understand the material. What’s more, many of them had to be in good favor with their government’s brainless indoctrination to get selected for foreign study in the first place.
As far as I can tell, upper middle class whites are those most compatible with the Asian mindset and probably originate from similar selective pressures. Their neurotype and phenotype is just not as widespread.
I recall watching League of Legends championships and noticed the few whites were as weedy, gracile, and diminutive as their Asian counterparts. Both the white and Asian players exhibited these traits to a greater extreme than an average Asian would. What we call “nerds” in the West simply became more normal in densely populated rice civilizations.
Another test is necessary, then, besides IQ to determine a ruling caste. While autistic bean-counters are put to good use within the low to middle ranks of bureaucracy, they are incapable of rule. It is not even in their temperament to rule themselves, let alone others.
There has to be a way to test for genuine curiosity and understanding as opposed to just manipulating symbols. Even more so, a barbaric penchant for internal locus of control rather than civilized unquestioning conformity.
From my own experience and reading history, it seems humans come up with new ideas and conquer when they have good IQ and teamwork combined with just the right amount of barbarian wildness and individualism.
It seems otherwise hard to explain how the rocky tip of the Balkan peninsula or a small and rainy island might have created the most enduring ideas and inventions while having the greatest military might and empires of their times.
When I was in Korea sometime back, I thought their society very much superior in many ways. High IQ made itself obvious in everything from monumentally more effective city planning to more subtle signs like having a whole TV channel devoted to the game of go.
But watching crowds stand patiently at crosswalks, almost in rank and file, even when no cars were nearby told me in one instant why they’ve never conquered the world and why their cousins in the North consent to be ruled by one of the world’s worst governments.
A nation of Africans with 100 average IQ would have potential to become far more dangerous than they are. Neurotype and temperament matters in people just like it does in breeds of dogs—it’s just considered very impolite to notice.
