A question I’ve been wondering about for years: As more and more discoveries emerge from the worlds of evo-bio and genetics, how is the PC-opinion class going to contend? When the “blank slate” part of “blank slate progressivism” gets swept away, will anything at all remain of the progressivism? Yet true believers are of course unlikely to simply fold up shop, admit they’ve been wrong all along and embrace race realism and the Alt-Right. People aren’t generally prone to abandoning their faith that straightforwardly, alas. Instead they’ll cling, while trying desperately to control the conversation and/or torture the facts so they fit into their Utopian framework. Or such is my bet anyway. Well, the process is now underway.
Steve Sailer has a lot of droll fun with Amy Harmon’s lame Times piece. As always, Sailer’s commenters are a brainy and funny bunch. One of them writes, “Amy Harmon is a scientist-whisperer. She gets scientists to say what the SJWs want them to say.”
