If something makes no sense, we should not be afraid to say so. To me, the Bell Curve is the Elitist Deep State in drag. The Bell curve standing alone, makes sense. It just isn’t scientific and it’s not accurate.
Why do we keep hearing the words “Ruling Elite?”
Since when are democracies run by elites? The United States is, of course, not a democracy, we ‘re a Republic. Democracies have coalition governments. In the US we have winners and losers. But in neither case should we have ruling “elites.”
Since when are reporters, elite? Reporters are like waiters. They take information from the kitchen to the table. In most of the west, news anchors are referred to as news readers.
Look at the above graph. This is the data that’s supposed to prove that people with high IQ’s make more than people with low IQ’s. Do you see any correlation?
Yes, for wages below $60,000 but even then, the scatter is so great that it’s meaningless.
When I was in kindergarten, we were given IQ tests. Those who scored high, (in my school, it was 30 out of 500) were put in a class of hyper achievers. For the first 9 years of my school life, I was coddled, prodded and encouraged because I was “intelligent.” In fact, all high achievers are treated like this. Now look back at the graph.
If we’re so smart, why are so many “intelligent” people not high earners?
In my opinion, that chart doesn’t show anything other than the simple fact that smart doesn’t mean anything above an IQ of 100!
Now, let’s think logically about what a bell curve is. It’s in the shape of a bell. The middle of the bell is average, the left is “dumb” and the right “smart.”
Do you remember taking an IQ test?
Of course not, you were probably 8 years old. An IQ test does not test knowledge; that’s an SAT or ACT. An IQ test tests the speed at which a person can figure things out and their ability at pattern recognition. These are left brain logic skills. In other words, the exact skill’s you need TO TAKE TESTS.
The idea that people with high IQ’s should be elite comes from college professors.
In other words, it makes THEM appear elite. Well, if they’re so elite, why is there no correlation between high IQ and income after IQ’s of 120? An IQ below 120 is, frankly, not that high. If they’re so elite, why are their student’s debt slaves?
Now, let’s look at the logic.
The world is not filled with test takers. It’s also not filled with consumers, voters of taxpayers. It’s filled with people. Humans did not evolve as individuals we evolved as groups, and we are petrified of being outside of groups. Ask any kid that’s tall, short, skinny, fat or sick and they’ll tell you, “all I want to be is like everybody else.”
In reality, high achievers, whether in academics, sports, politics or any other activity are rare, EVEN AMONG THEIR GENETIC GROUPS.
Just because Niels Bohr was a genius, doesn’t mean all Germans are. It just means Bohr was. The rest of the country has IQ’s all over the map, or bell as it were.
Do people with low IQ’s have low wages? Absolutely, but remember, low IQ’s, like high IQ’s are RARE. A person with an IQ of 75 is in less than 2% of the population and often lacks basic abilities like simple math and communications problems. These inhibits their ability to function in the group.
All the “ruling” elite is, is a self-proclaimed group.
A group that thinks they’re above you. Think of all the ways elites LOVE to tell you they’re better than you.
They don’t eat meat, they’re elite.
They love animals, they’re elite.
They’re tolerant, you’re a bigot. They’re elite.
They’re vegetables are organic, they’re elite.
They’re educated, they’re elite.
They’re more holy than you, love God more, are more patriotic and care more about stranded puppies.
Just look at the elitist standard bearer, Hillary Clinton.
Hillary once described Trump supporters as deplorables, a word that “elites” wouldn’t use to describe a dog, but that wasn’t all. She described Bernie Sanders voters as losers who lived in their parent’s basements. Then, she wrapped the whole thing up by saying that she’d have a 50-point lead if voters weren’t so, seemingly, stupid.
Has anyone ever seen a politician so ensconced in hate?
In my opinion, anyone who doesn’t believe that there was a deep state plot to overthrow the elected President of the United States is either a liar, a politician or a moron.
I’d also like to add that anyone who believes that the world isn’t already run by self-appointed, deep state connected elites is hopelessly naive’.
These people believe that you are too stupid to vote and therefore they must do it for you.
Now, give another gander at the chart above. It says that there is zero correlation between intelligence and IQ for wages above $60,000 a year in the US. What is $60,000? It’s the average income for the average breadwinner in the US. This is what teachers, firemen, welders, roofers and UPS drivers make. Is it a surprise that average people make average wages? Maybe to an idiot.
Is it surprising high IQ people make average or in many cases, below average wages? You bet your ass it is!
This destroys the entire narrative, not only of IQ but of elite media, elite government, or elite college professors. Worse for them, it replaces it with those traits they fear the most, like hard word, integrity, honesty, values and commitment. It also replaces it with the thing they are the MOST afraid of.
The lions share of the world’s successful people are Christians and more so, Catholics.
This is a place they really don’t want to go. People aren’t better people as groups because they’re smart. They’re not less racist, more generous or better suited to lead. The people that do best are not even people “of faith.”
The most successful people are RELIGIOUS!
Oh, God; did I just say that? But it only makes sense. For people to live in harmony and be successful as societies, they must agree to live under not only laws, but laws that do not need to be enforced. Once laws must be enforced, they don’t work. For “elites” this is where the bell no longer tolls.
People in religions don’t break laws because they fear excommunication. That’s the big fear. Not incarceration. Germany, Sweden and Switzerland don’t need a million laws. They all agree that to live together, they need to get along with each other.
Personally, I find “elites” to be closer to retards than geniuses.
I live near them. These people put coats on their dogs, seemingly unaware of what fur is. They buy “fresh vegetables” oblivious of the fact that they are chemically ripened. In our local “elite” newspaper, a 1/8th acre garden was described as a “farm.” They seem unaware that organic pesticides kill bugs.
One particular “animal rescuer” told me that mother birds “teach their young to fly.” In our business incubator, they describe a three-inch tomato plant under a light bulb as “a technology.” One woman who spent two years as an anti-fracking protestor called me and asked me if I could teach her what fracking was. These are the people that think their education makes them elite!
Let me share with you one little factoid that is WELL known in the Ivy league brain centers.
Things that are true, are worthless in politics. This is why the CIA, and Soros backed NGO’s sponsor such utterly asinine ideas.
If your purpose is to divide people, what good is a statement that everybody agrees on? This is why Global Climate Change is a gift from heaven for liberals.
Not only is it impossible to prove, it feeds right into their concept of elitism.
Anybody that thinks that CO2 emissions are the biggest environmental problem the world has, has never been to China, India, Indonesia, Thailand, Brazil, or Bangladesh. In India alone, 350,000 children die every year from dysentery. They’re literally being poisoned by their own feces. One in five Chinese will die of respiratory failure from soot emissions. In Bangladesh, children work dismantling toxic cell phones and recycling metals.
But the fact is, the high IQ elites care more about their dogs than Indian children. (Notice how Andrew Cuomo wants to make plastic bags illegal but not those used for dog shit)
The first attacks on the Bell Curve were from teachers. This next attack is from mathematicians like Nassim Talib. They fight the good fight.
