Discussing the verboten - Human BioDiversity (HBD)

I recently came across the article Demography Is Destiny–So Why Do Gregg Easterbrook (And Barack Obama) Want America To Take The Third World Risk?, by John Derbyshire, VDare, May 14, 2016. The author correlates success of societies with their mean national IQ. Unsurprisingly, there is a negative correlation between IQ and the Cato Institute’s Misery Index - which calculates how miserable a country is based on four measures: unemployment, inflation, interest rates, and real GDP change. In other words, the higher the mean IQ, the more prosperous and happy the nation.

That's not really that surprising. What is surprising, however, is that this discussion is taking place without overt mainstream media censorship. In actuality, the discussion is taking place outside of the MSM; there's not much they can - or will - say.

Derbyshire remarks that:

A lot of us non-Progressives know that demography is destiny: that the social, cultural, political, and economic character of a country bears a strong relation to what kind of people live there. We thought that the U.S.A. was a rather nice country before the demographic transformation brought about by mass Third-World immigration post-1965. We think that, if that demographic transformation continues, our country will become less nice, more like the Third World.

The question of who gets to live in America is a big issue, a colossally huge issue, that will determine the shape of American society as our children and grandchildren will know it. Instead of squabbling over urinals, we should be talking about this nonstop, 24/7.

Yet in fact it is very nearly a taboo topic. People who do try to talk about it... are sneered at, jeered at, and excluded from the Public Square. It would hardly have gotten a mention in this year’s election campaign if Donald J. Trump hadn’t brought it up...

The article continues to examine third world nations:

My colleague JayMan over at the Unz Review has argued that there are just two prior conditions you need for a country in the present age to be successful—that is, politically stable, with a high degree of liberty and decent, widespread prosperity:

    - a decently high average national IQ, up in the high nineties at least

    - a good level of social trust.

JayMan, who’s worked the numbers, says this hypothesis stands up to empirical verification...

I gave it a trial run using the Money Project website. It recently ran a page Visualizing the Most Miserable Countries in the World, working from the Cato Institute’s Misery Index, which calculates how miserable a countries is based on four measures: unemployment, inflation, interest rates, and real GDP change.

Here are Money Project’s ten most miserable countries, listed from bottom to top—least to most miserable. But I’ve added mean national IQ, working here from Lynn and Meisenberg’s 2010 figures. (They had an “X” for Jamaica, Lynn having declared it a lot of trouble to get good numbers for Jamaica. But Jason Malloy, using better data three years ago, came up with 80 for Jamaica.) [HVGIQ: Jamaica, HumanVarieties.org, March 1, 2013]

    Serbia; [89]
    Jamaica; [x]
    Palestine (which seems to mean just the Gaza Strip) [86]
    Iran [84]
    Russia [97]
    South Africa, [72]
    Argentina [93]
    Brazil [87]
    Ukraine [95]
    Venezuela [84]

The above article correlates a quantitative measurement of mean national IQ with a quantified measurement of national misery. It doesn't address Human Biodiversity directly, although its implicit premise is that IQ is a product of Human Biodiversity.

Human Biodiversity (HBD) is the diversity found among and between human populations that has a biological basis. Naturally, the mainstream media eschews any semblance of discussion of this kind of biology.

Here are a few resources on HBD:
