How come the smartest, most high IQ men are usually radically left politically? I never understood this, is there something I’m missing? History tells us that radical left movements such as communism and socialism do not seem to work, yet these men do not retract their views. Can Ernst explain to me why they are like this?

Pattern recognition = understanding how things work. Your understanding of how things work naturally relates to your ideas on how to solve problems with those things. Lifelong success in pattern recognition where others pathetically fail also leads to hubris, which is why the intelligent so often misjudge things.

>>21910
>I highly doubt that but it would again show a reaction to complex problems or situations in the most straight forward thus least intelligent manner.
Sometimes the straightforward solution is the best one, but that's not the point here. Nationalism is not synonymous with knee-jerk stupidity because muh country. Depending on your specific understand of the world "nationalism" you might not use it to describe what I have in mind. But humans need some concept of membership in a wider community in order to cooperate at a large scale in a prosocial manner, and nationalism at its most basic is setting the nation state as the level of community.

In the recent past, the highest level of community was the faith, and national distinctions were relatively minor. But if the faith starts to become less important in people's lives, where do you construct the tribal boundaries? Existing national boundaries are often the most instinctive and natural way to go.

Until I met the post >>21970, which implies (memeing aside, see >>21904 and >>21905) that pattern recognition is intelligence level measurement, I ignored the thread.

So the question stands:
>How come the smartest, most high IQ men are usually radically left politically?
High intelligence quotient, let's spell this term out fully, is based on the idea that pattern recognition determines intelligence level as a whole. In popular mind, high IQ level is equal to "being the smartest".
But let's think, who are usually among proponents of right ideas? These are people, who gained much money, and they can't let themselves to lose the quality of life, which usually drops for them after left ideas realisation, from high social taxes to revolutions. And most of them are businessmen.
What is to own the business? Work skills aren't enough - you've got to sell yourself every deal. For a successful and rich deal, social skills are important as well. And the intelligence quotient as we know relates to social skills indirectly and not so much, as pattern recognition does.
High quotient isn't enough on itself to determine political views. But high quotient isn't enough to determine the level of social skills as well, which is very important for successful business, which gives a lot of money to its owner.

There is a thread asking about German grammar, but why not make a languages general?

Why aren't you learning a language in your free time? Go for it, it's a good use of time. In a couple of years, you'll have an interesting skill.

I'm currently learning Russian, it's a horrible language crafted by Satan himself. Cyrillic is bad, but cursive cyrillic is just sadistic, it is no wonder that so many people resisted attempts at Russification.

Suppose you're a member of the secret cabal of major bankers and old royalty owning 99% of property on the planet and you're tasked with saving planet from the multiple threats its facing - from possible asteroids falling on it to resource depletion required to sustain the billions which exist on the planet, from ocean acidification and ecological collapse of marine biosphere to the discontent of the populace withing all the different countries which is threatening to turn into a bunch of civil wars and possibly even in World War 3.

How would you go about it? Preventing wars and asteroids requires you to develop industry to produce goods and develop required technologies but it runs contrary to slowing down resource depletion and reducing ecological footprint of industry to prevent climate change.
>>

You mean all of the above?

Well first of all, I'd be running contrary to the interests of those trust fund bitches so they'd immediately smear me as some Soros type where every knuckledragging mouth breather would hate me. Luckily I already hate most of the anyway and doubt that would change being the elite of elites except maybe I'd be far enough removed to pity them, and truly come to personally know hate for other oligarchs.

Asteroid deflection is not industry intensive. It's also, like a terrorist attack, an unlikely but very emotionally horrific type of a thing so even working on my own I could emotionally manipulate the public into supporting my efforts regardless, and branding as state enemies all who oppose it while sinking the costs into national defense budgets. And if I hear too much shit from anyone about not spending enough money on useless military shit we don't need and instead having the money specifically allocated to asteroid defense their nanny is going to find them dismembered and locked in their own luggage. If it's an existential threat I have no patience for fools and assholes and absolutely will go full-NWO. I'd have a jet liner crashed into their houses if I had to. You can pretend to care about deep concerns of others and humor imbeciles when it's not important or during peacetime. During an existential threat you sink the French fleet with French sailors on board if you have to and let them cry about it after we stopped the Reich.

Another area to cut down on is packaging. Some strides have been made here. Like you probably haven't even noticed the plastic twist off caps you use for all kinds of beverages like milk, soda, juice, coffee creamer and so on is now thinner, shorter, and uses less overall mass. Always appeal first to a man's greed, never his morality, and when you must appeal to his vacant morality do so in such a way that he feels socially judged for it. In the simple case of these plastic caps it can cost less money to produce the smaller cap and you can pass that on through the supply chain to encourage its adoption. Sorry fat people, I don't care if your fat greasy fingers can't grip the cap as easily. Do what you dont do in losing weight and actually put some personal effort in.

Portion size can also be controlled. In context of this thread I'm no longer mad about it because what happened during the 2008-09 recession was companies simply sold food in smaller containers without telling anyone rather than raising the prices. Oddly enough no one bitched about it. It was baffling. It was like somehow people were too fucking stupid even to notice that a jar of pesto or tub of ice cream was smaller than before but cost the same amount of money. So that is yet another tactic that can be employed, and even if you have to shake that slimy filthy disgusting hand of another person to pass it you can yet again appeal to man's greed and get them on board with selling smaller and smaller portions. In fact spraying cities with appetite suppressants or lacing their drinking water with it instead of fluoride would be a fantastic sounding idea, but we don't need to and it would have unintended consequences anyway. Just sell less food. Push fashions for smaller...whoa you know what o just realized? Skinny jeans are still the fashion. It uses less resources to make and accentuates whether a person is a disgusting fat fuck. Now frankly if you go to any city you will immediately notice how everyone's pants makes them look like complete faggots, but you can get people to wear all kinds of ridiculous looking nonsense especially if you get enough celebrities on board. Have a few musicians and actors wearing this silly shit and spouting off the party line. Get them to wear your faggot jeans so it becomes hip. If I'm the international banker I literally pay their salaries through owning and giving loans to the big movie and music studios.

Obviously a lot of tactics are being deployed right now, some better than others, and overall a lot less cynical seeming than I probably am but getting a bunch of children to protest against climate change and environmental catastrophe also works.

I can go on and on about this but again the real problem is going to be me dealing with the other oligarchs in your scenario, and how much I can get them on board. It is also frequently the case that no matter how bad the king, his immediate underlings and the toadies of the Court are often infinitely worse.

Don't blame 4kanker for that one. poltards are indeed responsible for the cancer spreading but the meme was cancerous to begin with and largely came from there, to the point where you could automatically tell the OP was a faggot from 4chan just based on starting the terrible thread with frog pics. I can somewhat forgive Lithuania because he probably doesn't know better in the same way I wouldn't know better using a cancerous sosach meme. I can't find it but I had a screencap of the entire KC catalog being nothing but this shitty frogposting towards the end. I mean it was their fault to begin with, but the meme was never good. It was always stupid and shit and always bandied about by 4kanker who I thought had invented it then imported it to KC.

well I know about game. Not more about you need a lot of things, more problem is that rules changing with every faq, every codes. Like every month - at least it was in 6-7 edition - there is no OP and imba in broken GW rules and everybody before this "bug" fixed trying to search for specific models to play
"Oh, now dragons in CSM rules, every CSM army should have three dragons or it's sucks!"

I said it just because in some clubs and in some tournamets is rules like "only OFFICIAL models!!!!". And for more simple models - like chimera, it's not that hard to find cheaper but good pirated model. With pirate models it's problems with really detail heavy expensive super-miniatures. Also, yes, 2nd market miniatures can give you a lot bits. At least this kind of was when I cared about all this things.

You can pretty easily spot a Chinaman model if you know what you're looking for. Even a painted recast has a very different feel to a lot of the common kits because they're usually resin. Ironically the reality is the opposite to what you say. You're better off getting chinaman versions of expensive forge world kits because they are officially resin models and once they're painted up it's fairly hard to determine the grade of resin (FW generally uses better resin than Chinaman) so you're more likely to get away with it. Having resin versions of kits that are only in plastic is a massive red flag. The resin also has a tendency to warp, especially if it's shit resin plus brittleness, miscasting and air bubbles are a part of dealing with the material so there's that too. GW charges out the nose for what is sometimes pretty lacklustre, but you do get what you pay for with recasts.

Depends what you are trying to achieve here. I think it is not ideal because of features like auto-complete, which tends to prevent people from learning important keywords. I recommend a simple text editor with syntax highlighting, for example notepad++. If you are more comfortable and are trying to create an actual page you can still switch to a full-blown IDE. Also you should at least learn some basic html markup before, to have some scaffolding to play around in. Shouldn't take you more than a 1-3 hours.

Is there a clear and definitive line separating the concepts of subspecies complex(es) and clinal variation, or is the decision to classify/describe populations using one or the other somewhat subjective?

For instance, if hybridization between types is known to occur in the wild with a frequency greater than some threshold, can we no longer describe the populations as a subspecies complex? At what level of gene flow does the species become monotypic?
>>
No. 21173
clines do not define subspecies or species, because they are gradients and one species or subspecies can possess many different clines, which may work in opposite direction even. so in taxonomy clines are due to their nature considered auxiliary.
