RED DAWN 40: Memory, Genius, and the Curse of the Silver Souls

RED DAWN 40: Memory, Genius, and the Curse of the Silver Souls

Memory correlates with Genius. High-IQ males tend to have an extraordinary ability to remember. Normies, by comparison, forget everything. What effect does memory have on one’s ability to know?

But memory is not to be confused with “experience.” Some people reference their “experience” or “feeling” to shut down reasoned argument. Who could be behind this fallacy?

And: Counter-signaling. White people show their class-status by rejecting the values of other classes. Uppers counter-signal middles who counter-signal proles and visa-versa all the way back. Why do we do this? When will it stop? And ultimately, whose value-system is right?

Upcoming Podcasts: More Academic Interviews

We are shifting emphasis in our podcasts–AI will be doing more Academic Interviews. Based on our SoundCloud metrics and listener feedback, there seems to be a strong demand for hard-core content. The people like bantz, but they seem to prefer succinctly-packaged  information and analysis.

Some of the podcasts we have in the pipeline:

  1. Red Symphony (Vince and Greg): a little-known book, suggesting that communism may have had an ingenious, yet unstated, grand strategy.
  2. Politics and Society of Sweden (Sven and Greg). We intend to do a serious overview of Swedish society aimed at non-Swedes. “The Swedish Question” attracts intense interest all over Europe and the anglosphere, so there is plenty of room for expounding.
  3. More coverage of the perpetual crisis in Ukraine.
  4. Some seriously spergy material on anthropology. We will talk about Carlton Coon’s Races of Europe (Norm and Greg), the racial/evolutionary history of India (with Singh), and the mysteries of Tibet.
  5. Northrop Frye’s theory of literary modes (with Robert Johnson). What distinguishes myth from romance, tragedy, comedy and satire?
  6. Internet and meme-culture. Learn about the history of 4chan, 8chan; Gamergate; /pol/ harbor and more, with AI’s own Internet native, Vincent Law.

We will continue our award-winning “bro high-culture” series Red Dawn. But rather than producing podcasts primarily in the Red Dawn format, we are aiming to release two Academic Interviews for every Red Dawn.

It may surprise some, but in all the archives of game, there is no definitive treatment of The CQ. Well, that ends now. Atavistic Intelligentsia is taking a stand: no more miff-tiffing. You guys know what I mean. The arguments are iron-clad–ethical, metaphysical, practical. Maybe the alt-right can excuse some forms of degeneracy, but this we cannot tolerate. Delenda est cunnilinctio!

Academic Interview 13: Embracing The Inner Teuton

Academic Interview 13: Embracing The Inner Teuton

German LARPing–it’s in the vogue. But is there more to it than mere nazi-cosplay? Could Teutonophilia mitigate the effects of (((education)))? Singh interviews Ritter on his life-long love of all things German–the language, the literature, the music, the history. Enter a rich world, unknown to anglospheric normies: The Nibelungenlied, Faust, Ernst Junger and inflected grammar.

The Eternal Normie

Let’s face it. The herd instinct is strong in us humans. Very few people are willing to break free from what is popular. Even more so very few people are even curious enough to question the merits of WHY something is popular. Repeatedly I meet otherwise high-IQ, high-performing huwyte Americucks who refuse to even hold a civil conversation about anything that goes against the “diversity is our strength” and “Jews are the chosen people” narrative. You would think a future medical school student, or a pharmacist, or graduate of a hard science like biology would be able to entertain the idea that evolution applies to humans as well as to other lifeforms.

Most people, after enough nuanced conversation, can be brought to understand basic HBD and admit that not all populations (i.e. racial and ethnic groups) behave the same. However, for huwyte Americans in particular, the status of Jews as unquestionably righteous in every aspect is unshakable. I really can’t blame normies for thinking this as I too once held identical beliefs. From the time I was in grade school, teachers, Hollywood, the news and even the modern Catholic church constantly beat it into my head that 1) Jews never did anything wrong EVER. 2) They are God’s chosen people 3) To criticize the Jewish narrative of history and reality makes you a NAZIWHOWANTSTOKILL6MILLIONJEWS!!!!

Over 70 years of social conditioning is hard to undo. For me, it took college statistics, thousands of hours reading evolutionary psychology texts, as well as years of noticing the over-representation of Jews in college social science departments, the media, finance, the legal profession and Hollywood that proportionally went far beyond their tendency toward a high verbal IQ. However it was the behavior of every-day Jews I encountered to really wake me up to what was going on. If not for me taking notice of Jews and their ensuing neurotic and subversive dialectic I would probably not be here.

But we all must remember–we are not normal, we are outliers on a bell curve of normalcy. Most people don’t notice the things I notice. Most people don’t realize that their evolved sense of morality is now being used against them. But what I still can’t understand is why, recently, a former friend of mine–who prides himself on logic, civility and nonviolence–suddenly became illogical, uncivil and aggressive when I made a slight joke about National Socialists’ uniforms being the product of a popular fashion designer who is now lauded by the homosexual “community.” I mean come on. What are you, homophobic?

My only guess is that with the death of Christianity in the West, a new religion of philo-Semitic diversity has taken its place. In this religion Jews are God and Hitler is Satan. To even joke about these issues is to speak heresy and risk a public stoning.
