The Four Horsemen: Augmented Reality of White Supremacy in the White House

Submitted by Terence M. Blackett

How Malthus, Darwin & Galton Sowed the Epistemological Seeds of Modern Race Hate That Will Lead to WWIII

It was the rise of Athens, and the fear that this instilled in Sparta that made war inevitable…” Thucydides History of the Peloponnesian War

It was once said that if you told the truth, you would shame the Devil. Others believe in Protagoras’ famous maxim that says: “man is the measure of all things”. However, conventional wisdom has being turned on its head, as far too many have suspended the veracity of reality, for an alternative, augmented fake version of a narrative that says: white privilege and white superiority have been the harbinger of progress, development & freedom given the white man has made more of a contribution to the development of the Western ideal than anyone else in the last 2000 years – yet sadly, the words of Scripture breaks through the stifling amnesia and mindless paranoia to remind us all: “Men would rather believe a ‘LIE’ instead of truth,” resulting in a world where strong delusions exist – perpetuating ongoing cycles where the mighty oppress the weak; the rich & powerful dole out the bread the devil kneads – creating a febrile, toxic, warlike atmosphere, as human beings lob from one crisis to another! Meantime, we are falling like flies from STRESS, OPIOID USE & a world in utter turmoil & the wanton wretchedness of the elites – a form of sheer madness that has morphed beyond palpable.

University of Connecticut philosopher Michael P. Lynch argues that the creation of modern, mainstream media socio-construction makes the ambit of societal understanding that much more vague and complex given the vagaries of fake news v true; authentic, reported news that is fair and balanced. Professor Lynch acknowledges that we have entered the era where the glass ceiling of objective reality has been shattered to bits and what we are left with is a circus side show (as we are currently witnessing in Britain with the BOZO government) of what he calls “the slide into despotism” based on our shared knowledge, the shenanigans of political intrigue & the negative effects of technological advancement.

In 1963, during those difficult years of the Civil Rights Movement, author, activist & scholar James Baldwin was prompted to respond forceful to Yale philosophy professor Paul Weiss on the Dick Cavett show, amplifying what it means to be Black in AmeriKKKa – with what can only be described as a masterclass in the art of debunking malicious subterfuge, while offering up an education in the matter of what it means to be a Black man in today’s so-called, white, privileged world. Actor Joe Morton’s clip here [55] years later, patently spells out the socio-politically engineered dilemma currently seething within the bowels of the (DIS) United States of Amnesia & Paranoia – where an age-old diabolicus of imperialistic tyranny still runs amuck in the dishevelled halls of the US government, but more so, within the Executive Branch, run by notably, the most “LYING, BIGOTED, RACIST, & CORRUPT” president ever selected to that office.

White privilege has become a pandemic virus ruminating within US society and infecting Britain, Europe, Australia et al! These social conditions can only lead to one set of individuals who refuse to own their behavioural attitudes to others – different from themselves. Therefore, political incorrectness would dictate that in putting an apocalyptic spin on Messrs. Bolton, Pompeo, tRUMP & Pence (BPTP) only shows the cataclysmic nature of what ‘hatred of others’ eventually creates.

As this current US Administration is the latest circus in town and its principal players are all globalists with a penchant for imperialist-type polyTRICKS – where weaker nations get labelled #Sh*tholes; Latinas are rapists and Muslims – the scourge of the earth!

In The Atlantic, a piece on ‘Augmented Reality’ brings home this poignant issue of white supremacy in Donald Trump’s White House – where the author cites Brian Wassom, who regularly writes on augmented reality – notes: “if apps can recognize a particular shade of melanin, and replace it with another, racists could one day live in their own version of…utopia.

Today nations are spending over £1.2 trillion every year on weapons of mass destruction just to kill innocent people – while millions go to bed hungry for lack of basic provisions. As one reads the news wire in social media, it is pretty much like reading the prophecies of Scripture – as you must understand them before they happens. Hence the reason why we must read & understand the history before it actually happens based Ecclesiastes 1:9!

If World War I & II meant anything to folks like my grandfather (WW2 Vet) who lived through those PRE-APOCALYPTIC crises – yet they felt the world was witnessing Armageddon and YESHUA – The Messiah would soon follow in His return to earth. That time has since passed and today we are living on the brink of World War III.

We are standing on the THRESHOLD of great and solemn events! The current, ongoing dubious war against terrorism, rages on many fronts and in many countries with the constant threats of engineered terrorists’ attacks – notwithstanding a “DIRTY BOMB” in the wrong hands could plunge the world into #WW3, causing profound fear to enshroud humanity, that men’s hearts would literally fail them. Yet we know (even if in denial) the world is about to be plunged into such a catastrophic abyss that it has never before seen or imagined and from the Scriptures comes undeniable PROOFS staring most of GOD’S people in the face but Satan has done such a job of keeping us in a tragically obtuse mindset of “PEACE & SAFETY” – when sudden destruction finally comes, it will take us completely unawares.

Emerging phenomena and unexplainable calamities will bring about such morbid fears (no words can express); unbelievable upheavals and dizzying financial & economic stress that our insecurity levels& the emotional tectonics will mirror the “PERPLEXITY” that Messiah spoke of in (Matt. 24:4-51; Luke 21:25).

As we have just witnessed another circus that is the G7 there in France – the end of August 2019 patently mirrors the 1 September 1939 when the first bombs began to fall in WWII. Any social historian worth his salt sees the correlation between our current TRADE WARS, CURRENCY WARS & GREAT DEPRESSION brought about World War 2! Today, trade wars, currency wars & another looming GREAT DEPRESSION stalks earth’s horizon and few are truly prepared for WWIII.

Drawing from apocalyptic literature, the FOUR horsemen paints a truly minacious picture of a kind of dystopian future world which makes HollyWeird films like 2012 look like child’s play. Our ongoing fascination with Sci-Fi movies: war & violence will one day soon come home to roust – as the nation’s fold themselves together like thorns for war (Nahum 1:10).

Amongst the principal architects of this fast approaching WORLD WAR are those Luciferian emissaries mentioned at the top of this piece: BOLTON, POMPEO, tRUMP & PENCE – a gaggle of devils hell-bent on imperialist global control based on the Kabbala wizardry of those who occupy the hell-hole that is the SYNAGOGUE OF SATAN aka THE DEEP STATE!

Why does AmeriKKKa keep attacking other nations remain the fundamental question that must be asked given what General Wesley Clark exposed in 2007. The general’s expose strikes at the heart of the US military industrial complex and their fomentation of perpetual wars appear to be the governing ethos of both AmeriKKKa and her proxy allied fighters like Israel who has just dropped bombs on Lebanon. Did Lebanon attack Israel causing provocation?

Professor Peter Beinart, in a piece in The Atlantic challenges the stereotypical nonsense being spewed by certain apologists whose penchant is to justify war & aggression by any means necessary (case in point, John Bolton). Of all the Washington Hawks – he is undoubtedly the worst. Bolton wants a war with Iran and he is itching for it (maybe Israel will scratch his itch). However, the Pentagon is looking further afield to China & Russia as the next axis of evil given Trump’s tweets & comments about both Russian & Chinese moves away from sanctions (as in Russia’s case – who is creating GOLD BACKED CRYPTOCURRENCY to side-step US sanctions) and China’s decoupling from the US trading dollar platform – all reasons to foment war!

In a 241 page book document by the Brookings Institute, it cites the prevailing logic behind the US strategy towards Iran where “Bolton’s main objective, designed to start WWIII by falsely blaming Iran for nuking Israel” (while the MSM refuses to cite the many instances of Israeli attacks on Syrian, Lebanese, Iraqi & now Yemini targets. Bolton is looking to justify use of the Samson Option in response, like Hitler before him, who exterminated Ghazaryan “ENGRAFTED” Jews & others – while Aryans form the elite face of the planet – the nemesis race of both Luciferian Ashkenazi Jews & freeloading Freemasons – both of whom are inherently Neanderthals by nature – all coexisting within the SYNAGOGUE OF SATAN!!!

Like Bolton, Mike Pompeo has done himself a huge favour by clearly outlining publically that he is a LIAR, CHEAT & THIEF: what he calls the “GLORY OF THE AMERIkkkAN EXPERIMENT”! What a clutse! Thankfully, Pompeo has merely highlighted what some have always known about US poLIEticians & the elites who comprise the “DEEP STATE” – a cabal of loyalists, lobbyists & LIARS; powerbrokers who fund & control the houses of Congress – DEMOCRAPS & REPULSIVEKINS (to cite Gerald Celente).

Trump & Pence are LIARS – they know what they are doing. This is not a game! These FOOLS makes up that Chrono-Genealogy-Caricature of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse! These two men posits a veneer of religiosity only to act in ways that upend their so-called faith – for “faith without good works” is just meaninglessness CRAP wherever you find it. To prove these vile characters know what they are up to: according to the 6th meeting of the National Space Council, Pence cites that Outer-Space is now a war-fighting domain. Is this the same Pence that believe that “I AM MY BROTHER’S KEEPER”? Surely those brothers are not Palestinians or South Americans but fellow JESUITS & FREEMASONS. So we’ve been warned in 2019, that all future wars will involve stratospheric weapons of mass destruction – while he announces the first leader of the United States Space Command. In one word: CRAZINESS! But then, the “Crazies” are out due to full moon & full spectrum dominance, with one goal in mind – removing 4 billion people from the planet, by any means necessary.

How did we get here? As I examine the totem pole of evil in our world, my firm belief centers around much of the post-enlightenment literature espoused at the time by racist philosophers & thinkers like Malthus, Darwin & Galton. Today social Darwinism, which is at the root & branches of postmodern racial & ethnic tensions in AmeriKKKa, Canada, Britain, Europe, Australia, New Zealand (90% clearly are English-speaking countries) who have expanded their so-called Enlightenment ideas about “survival of the fittest” in commerce, poLIEtics, reLIEgion, entertainment and human societies as a whole – leading to claims that social inequality, sexism, racism and imperialism had suitable justifications for their existence – given the linkages with nationalism we are seeing amongst the FAR-RIGHT in Europe & AmeriKKKa’s, coupled with fiendish imperialism, chanting (AMERIKKKA FIRST) which in reality, is a chant for: “ISRAEL FIRST” as we witness more & more regime change being floated by US hawks.

Francis Galton believed eugenics was the answer to a master race of human beings (ALL CAUCASIAN OF COURSE) who would have supremacy over the other races. Galton proposed to better mankind by propagating the notion that British elites was the epitome of racial purity. What a nefarious croq! He argued vociferously that social institutions such as welfare and mental asylums allowed inferior humans to survive and reproduce at higher levels than their superior counterparts in Britain’s aristocratic & wealthy classes. If you follow the bread crumbs, all roads lead to a form of philosophical indoctrination that remains at the heart of social engineering.

In a piece by the Scientific American entitled – “Why Malthus Is Still Wrong: Why Malthus makes for bad science policy” – Michael Shermer suggest that: “the belief in the inevitability of a Malthusian collapse. The power of population is so superior to the power of the earth to produce subsistence for man, that premature death must in some shape or other visit the human race,” Malthus gloomily predicted. Although Malthus’ served in several capacities over his career – he will go down in history as a white supremacist having left a similar legacy as Charles Darwin & his cousin Francis Galton who adopted much of their theorizing on “Natural Selection”.

In AmeriKKKa, Trumpian theatrics dress rehearses toxic rhetoric via Twitter about other countries & their native peoples – likening them to #Sh*tHoles while locking kids in cages and deporting their parents. Trump’s racist ideologies have been handed down through time by men like Francis Galton et al who felt that “INFERIOR RACES” were a drain on society as cited by Dr Howard Markel.

So, as a result, scientific racism in the words of Edward Burmila suggests that “Scientific Racism Isn’t ‘Back’ – It Never Went Away – especially in the age of Trump, believers of the once-popular tenets of scientific racism are feeling “emboldened”. This type of populist tyranny is also raising its ugly head in Europe, Britain & across the world but especially in places like Palestine where Israel seeks to wipe the Palestinians off their land and off the face of the earth! This is all down to Galtonian, Malthusian & Darwinian theoretical gobble-de-gook that Caucasian folks (enlightened & ignorant alike) find themselves confronted with in the last few months of the 2nd decade of the 21st centuries – yet clueless of that spurious form of brainwashing!

Finally, “a speaker of truth has no (real, true) friends” (African Proverb). Why? Simple! For those of us living in domains like the US, UK, Canada & elsewhere – our foreparents didn’t go through the last 400 years (1619 -2019) to let unpatriotic weaklings like Trump, Pence, Pompeo, Bolton & now Boris “BOZO THE CLOWN” Johnson to end the freedoms, privileges, financial prowess & benefits these countries have provided – becoming our homes! In all the rhetoric, combined, these FOOLS have served a grand total of 37 days in the military – yet they push our sons & daughters to war, to return in body bags, scarred, mutilated & maimed for life! These bastards have never had to fight for anything beyond their bank accounts & business interests. In Daniel 2:21 & Psalms 75:7, we are warned that ELOHIM is THE ONLY ONE who sets up gov’ts & takes them down! It is God who judges: He brings one down, He exalts another. He removes kings and sets up kings; He gives wisdom: “Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the BEAST: for it is the number of a MAN; and his number is 666!

    If you will look up the word “wisdom” in Strong’s Concordance, you will observe that there are several Strong’s numbers and different Hebrew and Greek words that are translated “wisdom”, and that the text you have chosen for a general definition is BU-esque; and bovine excrement

  • Some inconvenient facts for Terence Blackett to consider:

    In the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom, there are large (group) differences in academic performance between whites and blacks, particularly in mathematics, the natural sciences, and engineering.

    These differences in classroom performance correlate with differences between the groups in IQ and (academic) aptitude test scores.

    As long as these differences persist, some researchers will explain them by hypothesizing a genetic factor in “cognitive processing” and “intelligence”.

    Last time I checked, the Trump administration had not started any wars, had scrupulously avoided combat with Iran (despite Iranian provocations), had deported fewer illegal aliens than the Obama administration, and had enacted domestic criminal justice reform legislation (which Team Obama did not) thereby reducing the severity of law enforcement practices responsible for the mass incarceration of African-Americans. Under Trump, corporate tax cuts and government deregulation have also improved labour market conditions for African-Americans.

    Suck it up.

  • “How Malthus, Darwin & Galton Sowed the Epistemological Seeds of Modern Race Hate That Will Lead to WWIII ”

    It is interesting that the author chose to interject Francis Galton, the founder of eugenics into the caption of his article. The premise of his article is that as a result of white dominance there is going to be basically an Armageddon between the whites and non-whites.. Events have shown that genocide is not the preserve of any one race. In the last century there have been the following genocides: the Armenian genocide fomented by the Turks. The second world war. The Rwandan genocide with the Hutus slaughtering the Tutsis. And Pol Pot. Behind his fanciful writing, there runs a thread of envy. Whenever one particular set hold sway, it is always confronted with envy by those of lesser standing. It is an universal precept. If the Chinese had been dominant, the writer’s wrath would have been aimed at them instead. The prediction of calamity is nothing new.
    Look at South Africa: If the South Africans aren’t careful, their country is going to fail. Look at Barbados; at how it has been brought to the verge of collapse:. Who is is responsible for the dire trait that has befallen Barbados? The white Barbadians?

    There is an article in “Scientific American” which addresses what you have posted entitled “Unsettled scores: has the black and white IQ gap narrowed? by Marina krakovsky; and it comes to the same conclusion that you have posted. As regarding Trump, he is so disliked that it is futile to explain anything to his detractors. Obama didn’t do much for blacks but try telling that to the majority of them.

    Whites are not the outstanding performers in STEM subjects in the UK. They were. Asians (in particular Chinese) are. In fact, the situation is a bit more complex. In the recent GCSE exam results, London came tops, outperforming the rest of the nation, and this figure included a large number of black people, mainly of African heritage. Only about 40 per cent of Londoners are traditional white English.
    Working class white people are the worst performers in all of the UK.

    In science learning by rote and studying long hours like the Asians do is not a prerequisite for originality and creativity.. For example, Sir Fred Sanger ,the winner of two Nobel prizes had problems with mathematics. The point I am making is that working hard does not equate to scientific brilliance. For example, James Watson the Nobel winner was not great in chemistry. What he had going for him was the ability to see things and make a conceptual leap. Rosalind Franklin did all the donkey work on the structure of DNA using X-ray crystallography. Her X-ray diffraction photographs depicted the three-dimensional nature of DNA. The import of what she had eluded her. Maurice Wilkins her post-doctorate associate and laboratory director gave Watson and Crick Franklyn’s X-ray diffraction photographs. The two realized the import of the orientation of the different atoms and came up with the right answer. It is this ability( intangible in nature) that no amount of hard work will endow a person with. Which country is the most creative in Science? it certainly aren’t the Asian ones. I am not saying that in future they won’t achieve the ability. Creativity in science also needs an environment conducive to differences of opinions without state interventions..

    You are right, but that is a different argument. If you look at the students who do well in STEM in the UK they are mainly from immigrant backgrounds. It is learning by rote and does not include any originality. There is also an element of security.
    What the UK government has recently done is to offer free maths and English exams to everyone up to GCSE standard and these have now become the standard qualification, even for supermarket assistants. Sadly, the take up by young back boys is very low.
    Recent immigrants and refugees equip themselves with skills that can be taken across borders. In another 20-25 years these GCSE results will lead to professorships etc and a different narrative about race and IQ.
    By the way, this was a hot subject in the 1970s. Being a lawyer, the favourite subject for Caribbean people, is only useful in a particular jurisdiction (unless that person qualifies for another jurisdiction).
    As to the country with the most inventions, that is the US; but they ‘steal’ talent from around the world ie Silicon Valley is made up of a large number of Asians.

    Precisely. The Americans create an environment that is conducive to research, Once you are good enough you can end up leading the research effort of an institution in America. China does not create such an environment; who would want to do serious research in a country where one can be “disappeared” for crossing the authorities the wrong way?. A lot of professorships are being filled by Asians a fact. Unless they are exceptional, they will conduct research work the same way. All of the important research being done has been initiated by whites : from the big bang and black holes; 5G an American invention; stealth technology; GM technology; the germ theory of disease; computers; radar ; transistors, motor cars; electricity’. It is not a surprise that there is much negative feelings towards whites. As for blacks: all they seem to want to do is law, medicine ( rote learning), political science, marketing, management and economics. Don’t seem to want to tackle the difficult courses that require abstract thought. And of course there is the carnival .Carnival is associated with catholic countries. It took A Grenadian to introduce carnival ( that is what crop over is) to Barbados. Barbados has gone carnival mad and it is now claimed to be our culture( what a remarkable change in a generation and a half).

    An environment that fosters curiosity has to be encouraged, The contrarian must also be fostered and protected allowing different ideas to flourish. The slavish conforming to the majority position should be relegated to the dust bin of history. The white countries encourages individualism; some thing that is fostered in other countries. These are the reasons why despite the Asians doing well at the first degree level ,they are not that exceptional at the graduate level.

    You are right about abstract thinking. I have been pilloried for the absence generally of critical thought on BU. It is our educational system. Why don’t we teach critical thinking in schools. I understand we have now stopped teaching Latin and Greek, I am not sure if that is true.
    But plse do not over-praise the WASP Americans. They steal talent, as I have pointed out. That is the power of capitalism. Just look at the big digital firms; they buy out rivals, incorporate the best bits and close the rest. Classic business school teaching.
    Here is an example: sometime ago about 70 per cent of Indian STEM graduates wanted to do post-graduate research in the US. Most would have gone off to prestigious Ivy League universities and those who have done well would have been offered jobs to stay in the US. There s even competition between the various US colleges ie MIT and CIT.
    That is how US capitalism works – unlike the UK, for example, where our form of nationalist capitalism prefers white people to do well. Just look at the German immigrants to the US both before and after the war; the US nuclear programme was built on German knowledge.
    I have a close friend whose son went to Imperial where he also did post-graduate work; he then went to Silicon Valley were a venture capitalist backed his idea for six months, at the end of the period he received $7m and the project was taken off him.
    He is now back in London working on another 5-G idea which he is confident would make him even more money. He is not yet 30 yrs old and is not white.
    @Robert, it is cultural. In the Caribbean we export our knowledge – look at Jeffrey Emptage. In the UK, one of the best beer scientists is Sir Geoff Palmer, of Jamaican heritage, who left school early then returned. He was an early victim of the racism in UK schools in the 1960s, but did not give up. Now he is celebrated. Not bad for a Kensal Rise boy.
    Instead of giving taxpayers money to White Oaks, why doesn’t this government invite him down as a consultant on micro-brewing? There are lots where Geoff came from, talented black people who would love to contribute to the development of Caribbean societies.

    In the past/present we manage(d) quite well by exposing all the children at Primary and Secondary levels to the humanities,science, and the creative arts. They go on do a little specialization at Sixth form level . They specialize at the Tertiary level. It has worked beautifully for us. God/nature likes diversity and so should Man. They are no national imperatives. The latter exists in the minds of those who understand least what is required of the next generation. The education system develops the critical and creative skill of the citizenry. They make professional and other decisions based on the cognitive skills acquired in schools. They will have learned how to learn.

    Our Education System evolves. We are not good candidates for revolutionary changes. They seldom work. Examine world history.

    Knowledge is not absolute. From Galileo’s battle with the church, to the Kuhnian revolution, knowledge has been and remains dynamic, non-linear, surprising. Had it not been so we would not have discovered quantum physics, for example. That is why we have scientific experiments.
    A good educational system should have enough room for the arts, humanities, sciences and for just thinking. One of the most inspiring teachers when I was at school was Karl Broodhagen, who taught art and boxing. I was keen on the discipline of boxing.
    The educational system comes under scrutiny when resources are few and outcomes are questionable. How do we spend taxpayers’ money? Creating more lawyers? I will give another example: until a decade ago UK newspapers used to tell stories of the dumbing down of GCE exams, especially maths.
    And in their quiet, unassuming way, the Brits re-organised their exams, with tougher maths, bringing down some of the A level topics in to GCSE higher maths. Now with tougher exams, a higher percentage of children have passed the exam. Are there lessons here for those calling for changes to the 11+?

    That is the case at first in mathematics and after a while one discovers the beauty and logic and rote learning goes out the door. In the case of chemistry rote learning is not the case. For example the chemistry of carbon with the Sp3, sp2 sp different electronic configuration. The fundamentals are abstract and one has to be able to grasp the idea of sp hybridization, if not one will be forever at sea when it comes to organic chemistry. The same holds good for the solubility product in physical chemistry.

    When measured against the number of native born Americans in the sciences the number is not that large. Another thing you have overlooked. In the inter war years all top-notch scientist went to Germany, The American and Russian nuclear programs gained from the Germans’ research. The space travel is founded on German engineering and science; so too are the designs for the B! bomber. the Americans improved on the German blue print. Having said all of that, it was the practice of the whites to go and study and work in one another’ countries.

    @Dr. Lucas, you appear to have delved into this subject of Blacks in the sciences at the cutting edge level (inventions, major research discoveries et al) so perhaps you can expand on your assertions that: “As for blacks: all they seem to want to do is law, medicine ( rote learning) […] Don’t seem to want to tackle the difficult courses that require abstract thought.”

    Expand I mean within some queries…

    1.How is it that there are names of persons with African heritage associated with modern day awesomeness (the phone…indirectly, light bulb to name two); linked to pioneering aspects of space discovery and so on but yet you so facilely condemn us to the humanities subjects WITHOUT even a passing nod to the RAMPANT and INSIDIOUS professional, racially tinged overwhelming pressure that daunted and then doomed many Blacks who had the inclinations to pursue those areas.

    @Theo said it BLUNTLY…what or who is a Black with a PhD: Yo, nig** got any weed for a hit…I’ll check u in your hood lata! Or saud, tongue in cheek: his was the real McCoy!!

    Do you not think it quite counterintuitive that if we can move into those areas and have great success that to argue (so many, not only you) that similiarly some of our best are too intellectually limited (or lazy) in our ability for scientific success!

    Also, what in heaveans name does the concept of “Carnival” – a creative, right brain construct have to do with the supposed left brain function of science!

    Why are you arguing – it seems – that both spheres (as they have been so marked by science) are so mutually exclusive that an entire race of people have chosen one to the disadvantage of the other! Many can do both individually and doubly so can we as a group!

    And that brings me to this other often misused concept of “critical thinking”.

    As I see it displayed here on BU it OBVIOUSLY means : if you agree with my line of reasoning you are an astute critical thinker; to offer opposing views you are clearly a brain dead fool!

    So let me as you (and folks like the other Doc, and @HalAustin … in other topics) what actute level of CRITICAL THINKING informs an assertion such as: “As regarding Trump, he is so disliked that it is futile to explain anything to his detractors. Obama didn’t do much for blacks but try telling that to the majority of them.”

    A.Is Mr Trump disliked for NO valid reasons whatever? B.Do all Mr. Trump’s detractors dislike him simply because none of his policies make sense (which would be absurd, as some do)? C. Has Mr. Trump not done and said (too many) things that should cause grave displeasure for any democratically run nation and its people…and in every regard totally distract from any of his (and party’s) worthy proposals?

    CRITICAL THINKING as you and all here know only too well means having the ability to review, understand and then respond JUSTLY and RATIONALLY with informed critique. I would suggest that is impossible here on politics and religion….

    This amazing remark of what ONE singular present in 8 years was supposed to so magically do for the lives of an entire race is critical thinking at its best I imagine. SMH!

    I gone.

There was the problem in quantum mechanics about location and momentum of a particle moving around the nucleus of an atom. Heisenberg on a cold December night after supper with Bohr went for a walk contemplating on the problem and hit on the idea of the uncertainty principle to solve the problem
    The Heisenberg uncertainty principle states that it is impossible to know simultaneously the exact position and momentum of a particle. That is, the more exactly the position is determined, the less known the momentum, and vice versa

    Which one was your Yahweh’s favourite ‘white’ son? J. R. Oppenheimer the Jew or Wernher von Braun the Lutheran aristocrat?

    If an educated man (very well read and well sophisticated in language and the world academia) opines on subjects like critical thinking which immediately pings readers to an awreness of specific areas of study like logic and socratic discourse…and then said man makes queries which just as swiftly suggests to said readers that he is employing that socratic questioning style of debate it surely seems QUITE odd that the man is unaware of what his collective writing suggested!!

    This ‘phenomenon’ of blacks being the hewers of wood and drawers of water in the world of “STEM” has a lot to do with the poisoning of their minds caused by imbibing the mentally-numbing and dumbing-down aspects (opiates) of the mass-based religions of other people used today mainly for commercial purposes like the gospel of material prosperity peddled by flashy flamboyant conmen calling themselves preachers.

    Until there is a quantum leap or a sea change in the thinking of black people towards “Science” and away from the hocus-pocus fiction called religion, blacks will continue to be the entertainers of the world producing outstanding performances only in sports and ‘jungle’ music.

    When we see a seismic shift in the ratio of greedy preachers and fake bishops to ‘real’ men and women of science like Neil de Grasse Tyson and Margaret Aderin-Pocock then we can feel that there hope for the black people to play (again) a meaningful role in the coming Age of Aquarius.

    You are right about abstract thinking. I have been pilloried for the absence generally of critical thought on BU. It is our educational system. Why don’t we teach critical thinking in schools. I understand we have now stopped teaching Latin and Greek, I am not sure if that is true.
    But plse do not over-praise the WASP Americans. They steal talent, as I have pointed out. That is the power of capitalism. Just look at the big digital firms; they buy out rivals, incorporate the best bits and close the rest. Classic business school teaching.
    Here is an example: sometime ago about 70 per cent of Indian STEM graduates wanted to do post-graduate research in the US. Most would have gone off to prestigious Ivy League universities and those who have done well would have been offered jobs to stay in the US. There s even competition between the various US colleges ie MIT and CIT.

    @ Hal I must say you are spouting off nonsense in this regard.

    An average engineer for Apple manufacturing in China makes around US$400 monthly/US$5000 yearly approximately

    Similar wold apply in India etc.

    The same engineer coming to America will earn US$100,000 or more yearly TWENTY TIMES MORE.

    America doesn’t have to steal talent, people come in droves because of wanting to earn more and live a better standard of life with freedoms not experienced where they came from.

    Secondly the example you use of your associate receiving $7m for 6 months in a Venture Capital (VC) funded project he started up would have had more to do with his perceived lack of Managerial skills and working with people under him or on his team.

    I can speak from experience from both my technical background and raising Venture Capital in several countries, and yes I am black or non-white like your colleague you used in your example.

    Your post is an example of the lack of critical thinking . You talked about the about blacks in science but when it is pointed out that the numbers are miniscule you go off at tangent and cite the Insidious .pressure faced by blacks (in what I take to mean the major western countries). What about the black scientists in black countries, do they face the same insidious pressure and racism that result in a paucity of contributions to the advancement of the human race? How then can one explain the dearth in numbers and contributions of black scientists in black countries ? According to your post, even in their own black countries they suffer pressures and racism( a logical conclusion for one to arrive at).This is a clear example of your inability to reason in a logical manner. Your post also supports what I have been saying, blacks are always seeking to delve into the distant past to blame others for their present plight. It is this “that one is a victim” of past injustices that keeps one perpetually wallowing in self-pity.

    You were not specific as you now are on why the young man was no longer involved in the Project he first started,

    The fact that he was bought out was great it meant it was a tremendous success for him in the USA.

    That was not to be gleaned from your first submission.

    Let me say this as I know way more about this topic than you FIRSTHAND.

    The reason people are leaving their countries to go to America with technical skills and qualifications are because from a personal perspective they can live like kings or queens in the USA compared to living like paupers where the quality of life is little different from other poor suffering people where they came from with less qualifications and knowledge.

    One thing I must add is when I made the comparison of the wages/salaries I should also should have mentioned the hours required to do so, for example the same Apple Engineer in China would have to work per week 6 days 12hours per day a total of 60hours. In the USA labour Laws is 8 hours per day/40hours in a week, anything over 8hrs per day is 1 1/2times per hour work of over time.

    Yes I can agree the USA benefits from having skilled technical workers from overseas, however the benefits for those people ARE VERY SIGNIFICANT.

    The USA is not stealing their talents it is a win win especially for the individual.
