Steve Wolfer deserves to be restricted to Dissent. Sanction this post if you agree.
Wolfer deserves a taste of his own medicine. He has aggressively, obsessively demanded that those with whom he disagrees be excommunicated. His own sins against reason have been worse than those he alleges to have been committed by others.
He has spread profane, uncivil discourse:
He has repeatedly smeared those who identify biologically objective racial differences as “racist.” Yet his racism is the lowest, most crudely primitive of all -- the desire to obliterate all racial distinctions:
“There is one more way that races will disappear. Sex, lots of sex (along with transportation to allow lots of sex between all the different races in all the different regions, and an end to stupid cultural restrictions on intermarrying - these things are happening... but that isn't something that happens in a short time.)”
"If we work hard at "mixing" (which I think is a good idea :-) then the day
will come when it no longer makes any sense to refer to races."
It's not about the freedom to mix. I don't deny anyone that freedom to anyone.
I talk about race not to annihilate any racial ancestries but to help defend and preserve the existence of well-functioning, productive, prosperous, low-crime, property-respecting free-market societies. May aims are benevolent. I desire more freedom, more beauty, more achievement. Wolfer’s racial obliterationism appears to be malevolent, as are all forms of egalitarianism in general and as is the post-modern fad of egalitarian racism in particular.
Wolfer is a radical race-leveling egalitarian who objects to patterns of human biodiversity at the metaphysical level. He sneers at the very existence unique human phenotypes forged by tens of thousands of years of evolution and seeks to wipe them all out and replace them with a single, uniform race of brown people. No blondes, no Cherokees in Wolfer's world. His aesthetic is mediocrity. An end to racial diversity and an infusion of Sub-Saharan African DNA into the whole gene pool would mean a compression of the world IQ distribution and a virtual elimination of the far right tail, which consists of people considered geniuses, which consists almost entirely of non-African people.
I seek to preserve and enhance the objective biological foundations of high-achievement in individuals and civilizations and preserve and enhance freedom and reduce vioilence and crime. Wolfer's dysgenic prescriptions are prescriptions for civilizational degeneration:
Conquest of a Civilization by Open Invitation
Because Wolfer wants Third World Muslims to help mix away distinct European (and all other) phenotypes, he would not allow Western countries to defend their borders from Muslim invasion, rape, murder, totalitarianism, and gradual colonization (see link above). This isn't even a racial issue, but an issue of the right to national defense (as Peikoff notes), which no Objectivist would sensibly oppose in light of the nature of threat of Saudi-funded Islamification. Now I do oppose Peikoff's calls for invading Muslim countries militarily. I'm for non-violent defensive measures unless/until an actual military threat manifests. Peikoff is over-zealous, but I think his motives (defending Western civilization from a mortal threat) are good.
Wolfer's aren't. His are egalitarian in nature. Wolfer's dysgenic prescriptions are prescriptions for civilizational degeneration:
Lynn Barkley Burnett and Jonathan Adler, the authors of a 2005 study on domestic violence in the United States, found that “the incidence of spousal homicide is 7.7 times higher in interracial marriages compared to intraracial marriages.” ...an older study found that white men who married black women were 21.4 times more likely to be killed by their spouses than white men who married white women. A white woman increased her risk of being killed 12.4 times by marrying a black man. [Fatal Violence Among Spouses in the United States, 1976-85, by James A. Mercy and Linda Saltzman, American Journal of Public Health, May, 1989.] Dr. J. Richard Udry’s 2003 study of 90,000 middle- and high-school students found that black/white and white/Asian children were more likely to be depressed, sleep badly, skip school, smoke, drink, consider suicide, and have sex than children of just one race.
