The class had just watched Sound and Fury, a Oscar-nominated documentary about deaf culture. The film follows a 6-year-old deaf girl named Heather and her family several members of whom also are deaf as they go back and forth on the issue of cochlear implants, a then-new technology that allows some deaf people to hear.
February 16, — 3: If you were trying to reduce the main points of the Dissident Right with a few bullet points, it would be: The people in charge have dangerous fantasies about the future of society and the nature of man The mass media is just propaganda for those fantasies and can never be taken at face value Race is real, ethnicity is real and evolution is real.
In the main, humans prefer to live with their own kind. Diversity leads to conflict. There is a more to it, but those are the three main items that come up over and over among writers in the Dissident Right. The people in charge, of course, dispute these and consider them to be ignorant, paranoid and immoral.
Of course, anyone mentioning the realities of race and sex is the branded a Nazi or white supremacist. A useful summary, because pithy summaries of positions from the inside are almost always a helpful addition to understanding and debate.
Pithy summaries tend not to be the places for nuance. False because there are inherent structures which cannot be wished away by human will and action. What I like to say is that Karl Marx was right, socialism works, it is just that he had the wrong species.
Because we have reproductive independence, and we get maximum Darwinian fitness by looking after our own survival and having our own offspring. So, the evils and problems of the world gets analysed in terms of malign human action and are deemed to be soluble by unified human action.
Hence the tendency to talk as if all the problems of the world as are the result of malign human action-and-feeling racism, sexism, etc which require unified action to eliminate, including the convergence of all forms of social action towards proper social harmony.
Needless to say, analysing all human and social ills in terms of malign will and bad feelings is toxic to open debate, or even elementary civility. But about that race thing Where I fail to get on board with the dissident right is the race thing. Yes, race is real in a fuzzy boundary sense, it is just not real in the sense they mean.
Ethnicity was how we scaled up beyond foraging bands. From the C18th onwards, race was basically constructed within Western thought as a meta-ethnicity.
But no-one who takes the heritage of Western civilisation seriously should play that game for a moment. Do you mean Afro-Caribbean immigrants, who achieved their freedom from slavery a generation earlier and whose ancestors live and voted in polities where they were fully integrated into local politics?
Because they are quite different groups. And the last are very much an ethnic group, an American nation, and can only be understood through the prism of ethnicity, not race.
I seriously doubt that the importing of highly educated East Asians or South Asians is any threat to the fabric of American society. Their permanent minority status means that aspiring to domination see below is suicidal, and has long since been adapted out of their varieties of Islam.
Hispanics in the US are a little more complex, but mainly because of the consequences of illegal immigration in creating black markets in labour and of blocking voter control over migration policy.
Have effective border control plus explicit selection and the problem largely goes away. How am I so confident? Though Australian states continuing to restrict land supply to drive up tax revenue while failing to provide adequate infrastructure, leading to mounting congestion issues, is putting that under some pressure.
The serious problems with diversity in the US largely comes down to two things: The dissident right will at least talk about it, if often not in a very analytically useful way. The problem with mainstream Islam is simple: It is why the difficulties with mainstream Islam are orders of magnitude greater than those with Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, etc.
But progressivist piety display makes it almost impossible to have any sort of public conversation about the difficulties that mainstream Islam being a religion of domination generates. And so back again to why I read the dissident right. Steep status hierarchies The irony is, that Ebonic-American crime and the problems with mainstream Islam likely have overlapping causes.
In both cases, as is normal in human societies, the crime and violence problem is overwhelmingly concentrated in young males.
Moreover, if one thinks in terms of status or dominance hierarchies which are connected to income inequality but not limited to it the patterns begin to make more sense.We would like to show you a description here but the site won’t allow us.

As a follow-up to Tuesday’s post about the majority-minority public schools in Oslo, the following brief account reports the latest statistics on the cultural enrichment of schools in Austria.
Vienna is the most fully enriched location, and seems to be in roughly the same situation as Oslo. Many thanks to Hermes for the translation from regardbouddhiste.com
