I love how the logic of disparate impact is fervently applied to stuff like crime statistics, but when it comes to stuff like “top ten percent of each graduating class” affirmative action in education, which was explicitly implemented as a work-around for Supreme Court rulings–that is considered permissible if not worthy of applause. Stuff like… Read More Disparate Impact
Firstly, I would like to take a moment to repudiate the few days in which I flirted with the idea that Trump’s election is a good thing. I hereby revert to my stance that people who obsessed over seeing Trump win the presidency were, and are, pathetic and out of touch with reality. Culture >… Read More Why Make a Universalist Moral Argument?
I woke up from one of those deep, deep catnaps. I had never before really thought so penetratingly about Trump, who I think the man to be. At first, I realized how potentially fucked we are. This is a man who seems to have little idea of the complexities of the world, and that he… Read More Thoughts on Trump

Remember the concept of a ‘limit’ in Precalculus? I think there is a limit of human evolution–that altruistic personality traits will preside in deep evolutionary time. I see the (de facto) efforts of Antiracism to reward antisocial traits (identifying them by color), which would be maladaptive if it weren’t for the scaffolding provided by Antiracism,… Read More My Supposition of an Evolutionary Horizon of Colorblind Altruism
As many of us may have learned from our experiences getting embroiled in scientistic arguments with adherents of the mainstream Antiracist morality (all sociocultural structures predicated on the theory of racial blank slatism), belief does not follow from justification. Deploying logical or scientistic arguments in trying to persuade them that the theory of racial blank… Read More How to Argue for HBD
So, Tom Henry interviewed me. We mostly just sort of waxed poetic on how awestruck we are to bear witness to the turning of history’s engine–of the fact that the moral highground has been abandoned by our oppressors; how it now stands empty, waiting for us to occupy it. If I recall correctly, we also… Read More My Appearance on The Tom Henry Show
