  Destructionists

Ack! In the latest New Superstitionist, yet another Commie takes on the idiotic task of proving that all humans are effectively identical.

Race came to be recognized as a social construct: an aspect of social choices rather than a reflection of biological differences between racial groups. The constructionist thesis gained popularity after WW2 and encouraged advances in civil and human rights for racial minorities.


Minorities? Many of the groups that gained new "rights" are majorities in their lands, like the blacks in most of Africa. And their new "rights" have led to disaster. They were placed in control of systems that they didn't invent and didn't understand. That's not a "right", it's a guarantee of chaos, a cruel joke committed by the British Empire.

And with the Human Genome Project finding in 2000 that all humans are more than 99 percent alike, many thought genomics would put the final nail in the race coffin.


This is the standard line of the Constructionists, and it's SCIENTIFICALLY ABSURD.

If you're going to prohibit categories that are mathematically close, you are forbidding ALL HUMAN PERCEPTION AND THOUGHT, which is of course the real purpose of the Constructionists.

Let's consider other human-based categories. Hot and Cold only differ by about 80 degrees F, which is completely indistinguishable on a scale from absolute zero to the surface temperature of the sun. Red and Green are opposites to our eyes, yet their frequencies are indistinguishable on a graph of the entire electromagnetic spectrum from ELF to gamma rays. The bottom and top keys on a piano are seven octaves apart, which is just a flyspeck on the graph of all possible acoustic frequencies from the tidal pull of the galaxies to the vibration of an electron.

Nearly all human perceptions are based on very small gaps when considered against the physical or biological range of each variable. Why should race be excluded because it also notices a tiny set of genetic differences, compared to the full spectrum of bacteria, slime molds, lilies, lily-scented three-foot-long spitting earthworms**, octopuses, platypuses, and humans?

All humans can reliably distinguish both gender and race, which says that the categories are real and meaningful TO HUMANS.

Or a more active refutation: If race didn't have any defining characteristics, then mixing races wouldn't lead to stronger offspring. Just as with dogs or horses, purebreds tend to be defective and hybrids tend to be strong. Nice current example: Bush and Obama. Sultan Bush is the end-point of many generations of aristocratic New England Episcopal inbreeding. Like Prince Charles, he has that unmistakable inbred face and inbred mental deficiency. Obama, the self-described "mutt", has a well-proportioned face and body, a strong brain, and an amphibian nature that serves him well as an executive.

** I included this nightmarish worm because it's in the local news lately. A Gaian Church group is suing EPA to have the Giant White Palouse Lily-Scented Spitting Earthworm listed as an endangered species because only 4 specimens have been found in Whitman County in the last century. However, the very same worm is quite common a few counties north, around Leavenworth. Under the Endangered Species Tyranny, specimens found near Pullman count as a different kind of animal than the specimens found near Leavenworth, because the specimens found near Pullman are found near Pullman while the specimens found near Leavenworth are found near Leavenworth.

In this situation we are required by "science" to recognize two groups as different when they are precisely identical. With humans, we are required by "science" to recognize groups as the same even when all humans instantly recognize the groups as different.

Seems inconsistent? Not really. The underlying consistency, as Orwell showed us so many years ago, is to confuse and stupefy, to abort every type of thinking at its birth. That's the precise meaning of his Newspeak word unthink. Where logic spots a difference, "science" forces us to see equality. Where logic recognizes two things as equal, "science" forces us to see them as different.

Name:
Location: Spokane

Polistra was named after the original townsite of Manhattan (the one in Kansas). When I was growing up in Manhattan, I spent a lot of time exploring by foot, bike, and car. I discovered the ruins of an old mill along Wildcat Creek, and decided (inaccurately) that it was the remains of the original site of Polistra. Accurate or not, I've always liked the name, with its echoes of Poland (an under-appreciated friend of freedom) and stars. ==== The title icon is explained here. ==== Switchover: This 2007 entry marks a sharp change in worldview from neocon to pure populist. ===== The long illustrated story of Polistra's Dream is a time-travel fable, attempting to answer the dangerous revision of New Deal history propagated by Amity Shlaes. The Dream has 8 episodes, linked in a chain from the first. This entry explains the Shlaes connection.
