Quote# 124746

This is great article by Bruce Charlton, a must-read, because it explains so much about post-America shitlibbery. (For a complementary thread on the topic, try here.)

Executive Summary: what liberals have in IQ they lack in common sense. It’s an evolutionary trade-off.


That description sounds precisely like the basis for the cognitive and social schisms currently tearing apart Western nations. Self-segregating and supercharged-signaling “clever sillies” are running their homelands into the ground with overbearing government interventions to “close the gap” and open borders to “create more gaps”. This stupidity of intelligence signaling would be funny if it weren’t also so damned threatening to the continued survival of the West.


For an immediately palpable example of SMRT shitlibs applying abstract and systematic reasoning to a social intelligence system, see their snarky “you’re more likely to be killed by falling furniture than by a Muslim terrorist” apples-to-oranges comparison. (Socially intelligent reply: “Sure but falling furniture isn’t getting on planes with me, patting me down after a two hour wait in the TSA line, or calling for death to all infidels.”)

Charlton goes on to explain why it seems like we are seeing more pajamaboy shitlib faces and cuckfaces in the West[.]


Psychological neoteny is likely correlated, by the associative property, with physical and facial neoteny. Physiognomy is real, and it’s no accident that we often observe the silliest of shitlibs have very punchable faces devoid of any masculinity.

Shitlibs are, in essence, arrested adolescents, forever on the hunt for the next thrill to add meaning to their disconnected lives. Risk-taking and novelty-seeking are useful traits to have when one must impress a mate (usually a man impressing a girl) or broaden the pool of acceptable mates; but those traits are destructive when scaled up to the level of social policy and beyond the bounds of the life stage when mate acquisition is paramount.


But we are now at the point when the libshit SMRT mate signaling has reached sexual market saturation; I predict, and in fact we can see it happening already, that deftly counter-signaling the leftoid equalism orthodoxy will be a powerful display of fitness, for what do women love more than a bad boy rule-breaker who can buck the system and not just survive, but thrive? As always, BALLS wins babes.


I was convinced before reading this Charlton hypothesis that what’s happening in the AngloGermanoSphere is runaway “intelligence signaling”; that is, aesthetically disfigured and socially untethered White shitlibs of the West can only pride themselves on their abstraction smarts, and to stay ahead of their peers they have to signal hard against common sense, leading to xenophilia spirals (as well as degeneracy spirals and anti-White spirals).

(As a reader wrote, “Believing in a lie can require more intelligence; you have to know the truth to conceal it properly, plus the pleasing lie, plus the explanation why the lie is more true than the truth.”)

What’s happened is that common sense (or gut instinct, or mental sanity) has become associated with declassé opinions and flyover rubes. The cause of this association is complex, but it’s where we are today and it means that the shitlib clown-cognition signaling will continue until a cataclysm forces common sense on them. I doubt that increasingly insulated, credentialist suck-up shitlibs will rediscover the merits of common sense on their own.

Addendum: the Maul-Right is the next stage of human evolution: high IQ AND common sense. And that fact, more than any other, explains the hysterical response of the Left to dissident crimethinkers and to Trump; the Left knows a real threat to their rule when they see one.

In other words, "You talk like a fag and your shit's all retarded." God GOD, CH, can't you make one post without your pseudointellectual preening?

I never read past an unironic/unsarcastic "shitlib" or "cuckservative". There's just never anything of value to be found there. Ever.

@ Shepard Solus:

I did read past those words, and you're right - you didn't miss anything of value...but that could be said if you'd skipped the post entirely as well.

Jesus fuck, what an insufferable douche.

When ignorant fools proclaim themselves bastions of "common sense", it is safe to assume that their life is positively riddled with bad decisions - but due to the Dunning-Kruger effect, they continue to believe in their own wisdom and instead seek the fault elsewhere.
"I lost everything in the divorce. But this cannot be because we married before we actually knew if we were compatible, had far more children than we could afford and tried to follow extremely toxic models for family life. No, it must be feminism and gay marriage undermining family values out of evilness!"

I suspect that, besides being an attempt to sound sciencey (or, as they apparently call it in others now, "intelligence signaling") or possibly to pretend to be an Aspie genius with an outside perspective, the heavy use of "signaling" reflects their own incapibility to even conceive of acting in ways that are not directly self-serving for any reason other than manipulation due to their psychopathy.

Yes, and one of them posts under CH.

IF there's a single behavior I would be most inclined to mock as "intelligence signaling" (though I wouldn't use that phrase), it would be over- and misusing ten-dollar vocabulary for no good reason. It doesn't matter who's speaking or what their political leanings (if any) are, if you see a talk for general audiences that's dripping in "mate signaling" and "credentialist" or any of their polysyllabic ilk, it's almost always to disguise the speaker's ignorance of the material and/or the weakness of that material in the first place. It was the inestimable Richard Feynman who said that if you can't explain a topic to a class of freshmen, you don't really understand it. (Granted he had high standards for his freshmen.)

Retardocons use words they don't understand.

@Pharaoh Bastethotep

The frequent accusations of "signaling," here and elsewhere, strike me as the mark of someone who learned a little sociology or game theory and proceeded to make a theory of everything from it. Hell, this is basically everything James Weidmann has ever written.

Man this douche is really far up his own ass..

2/22/2017 7:40:34 AM


Big words don't make a big conversation. Actually this isn't even a conversation: you're just spewing stupidity out of your cake hole. Isa is right: insufferable douche. And one who needs to validate himself with the praise of other insufferable douches who are even stupider.

Major props for American Dad reference. I love that show.

Too much childish sneering smart-ass word invention; dr

"Executive Summary: what liberals have in IQ they lack in common sense" ?

Common sense requires a clear statement of goals and an equally clear explanation of the rationale behind those goals. Get back to us when you figure that out.
