I feel like that's being generous to the US.

I say that as a US citizen.

Is he though? If merely claiming one is the "Most Valuable" because they said a few obvious words as humor, then wouldn't that degrade the value of "Most Valuable"? Because of that, does it really make them the most valuable? To me it seems value is more appropriately placed on comments that tend to provide some type of insight where others did not. I guess what I'm trying to say is, if I assign the title "MVP" according to your criteria, then I would have to say that you are indeed the MVP.

Just another criticism that starts with the premis there is no such thing as "intelligence" and then goes and tries to criticise any analysis of it.

But they have found the genetic networks responsible for faster cognition and better memory now http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/science/science-news/12061787/Intelligence-genes-discovered-by-scientists.html and over and over the genetic research has shown the heritability of intelligence long before that.

Only a idiot thinks he is the smartest person in the room. There are people smarter than you or I. Get used to it.

Better memory and the speed of cognition are not the same as the ability to understand. From your article:

However other genetics experts have warned that even having intelligence gene networks does not guarantee success.

Sweden has actually lost five points since it was released. Last year it fell behind Finland that has taken in one tenth of the refugees Sweden has.

The Bell Curve, IQ and the Wealth of Nations are two well known papers regarding IQ and race.

inb4 racist comments about Africa.

But I read a while ago that Africa wanted the IQ point of being labeled retarded lowered because many Africans would be retarded. Seeing this I suspect that was either true or this is a long con.

I never look at the links before I click them. Pretty sure that's not the first time I've been sent to Daily Stormer by Voat. Reasonably sure I'm on a FBI watch list because of it now.

Its not, the average IQ per nation is well documented on many different sources. Some governmental, some research institutes and more.

Edit- and to spite the egalitarian who downvoted me, here are some good sources beyond the entry level. All are scientific and linked to proper research journals. The straw man of "well all nazi's are uneducated bigots" doesnt really work well when the actual, uneducated retards come in contact with me.

Remind me again how this is supposed to support their argument?

Big supprise, a test that measures learnedness gets better results in richer nations

Wouldn't it be more accurate to title this "Countries with best access to education" or something like that?

Something is wrong here; no country making decisions like Sweden can have that high of an average.

Intelligence is about taking information and synthesizing it into something useful. If you've been indoctrinated into a set of beliefs that doesn't correspond to reality, then you're working with bad information. Garbage input means garbage output.

I would argue that they are stupid, if they cannot see that their goals are leading to the destruction of their country.

Even a toddler can learn from its mistakes with enough negative reinforcement.

If the Swedish government haven't learned that their goals, and the implementation of said goals, are flawed, then yes, they are stupid. That, or cruel.

Swedens avg iq used to be over 100 but since immigration its dropped down nearer to 80. It will just continue to decrease. Just because something is intelligent it doesn't help of the sheer number of people are stupid yet have equal power in society. In europe there is not a huge class divide like in the states and that works well if you are a native european but once you allow the equivalent of iq 70 human turds to flood in then society starts to diminish

It should be possible to take the average IQ from the place of origin and then do a proportional mix average for citizens of working age. I'm sure the results would be horrifying. Especially when you factor in the reproduction rates.

No one knows what the effect on society will be of a huge drop in average IQ. I doubt it will be good.

The most recent numbers I could find where from 2010 and put Sweden's average IQ at 98, a three point drop since 2003, though I wouldn't necesarilly trust the source.
