Anatomy of “Anti-Racism”

typewriter-1215868_1280Mainstream journalists and mainstream politicians need to resume the essential tasks of opposing enemies of open society, facilitating informed multicultural debate as well as reforming immigration policy so that the focus is once more on receiving deserving pro-democratic asylum seekers.

Apophatics of Journalism

man-2399982_1280Free journalism is an essential element in open society and liberal democracy and in fact unless journalism is free is it not journalism at all. Our digitized world is full of online writers and so who is a journalist and who is merely a writer? Is a journalist someone who is paid by others to write or is a journalist a person who while writing endeavors to think for herself with high ethical standards and independently of ulterior personal economic considerations?

Arithmetics of Islamization

Apostasy_laws_in_2013.SVGBlaming others for elected politicians, journalists and the police not doing their job in defending open society from its enemies will certainly not help solve problems associated with societal processes of Islamization in liberal-democratic open societies with large-scale immigration from countries in a state of more extensive Islamization. Rather, those who evade their duties in defending open society will by simple arithmetics become outcompeted by yet others. Read more…

Art of Democracy

emancipate-1779132_1280Democracy is in a sense above politics and so democracy is thus not reducible to mere politics. What is needed therefore is profoundly multidimensional ethical understanding that will further develop, enhance and strengthen the global project of freedom, emancipation and representative governance.

hands-2747324_1280Many modern multicultural societies suffer racial/class strife mainly due to educationally normative genotypic average psychometric normativity, namely the phenomenon that one genetic group is turned into the psychometric norm in education. This favors genetic groups with relatively higher average IQs as compared to the nationally normative genetic group; e.g. as relating to genetically Ashkenazi Jews in Germany and reversely disfavors genetic groups with relatively lower average IQs than the psychometrically nationally normative genetic group. This is so as the individual speed of institutionalized compulsory learning correlates highly with individual IQ. Read more…

Deconstructing Liberalism

State of Deconstruction

160914-F-LY873-023As we technologically approach a very different economic era, one based on advanced individual talent rather than on access to mass capital – one of abundance in talent rather than scarcity in capital – do we certainly need to commence rethinking the state itself and its very purpose indeed.

United Feminism

girl-449769_1280Fourth-wave feminism needs to engage in social innovation, implement verified feminist social innovation in response to problems identified by feminist critique and furthermore overturn the male monopoly on violence without in most jurisdictions breaking the law of the land. Feminism in re-appropriating and empowering the domain of the feminine needs to become the movement against structural oppression generally whether this is social, economic, physical or governmental and irrespective of assigned class/type of body or social group. Fourth-wave feminism needs embrace and defend the values of liberty through democratic realism for these are precisely what enable feminism itself to emerge, exist, develop, thrive and prevail indeed.
