It's the browning of the population's demographics.

If it were the food, medicine, or other environmental factors, the decline would be observed within families - genetically identical groups would get duller generation after generation.

But the observed change is reported to be between families - different groups of people are contributing to the national decline in average intelligence.

This is how you have to phrase your discovery that immigrants are stupid, if you want to keep your job as a government-funded scientist.

The introductory paragraph of ther paper debunks this

Using administrative register data with information on family relationships and cognitive ability for three decades of Norwegian male birth cohorts, we show that the increase, turning point, and decline of the Flynn effect can be recovered from within-family variation in intelligence scores. This establishes that the large changes in average cohort intelligence reflect environmental factors and not changing composition of parents, which in turn rules out several prominent hypotheses for retrograde Flynn effects.

This can't be possible without also taking into account the composition of the National Service. Variation in the composition for the National Service controlling for factors such as the global pool of possible jobs for National Service employees extra-Government. What could these same demographic candidates be doing now they wouldn't have been able to do in the 70's?

There's lies, damned lies, and statistics. This is an attempt at using statistics to sell an idea.

Their statistical analysis is pretty shaky.

  • In raw terms the wirhin-family change only explains about 1/3 of the total change, which they fix with 'corrections'. Such large corrections are notoriously error prone.

  • The study period for the decline is only about 15 years due to lack of data from the early 1990s. So there is not much data to work on

  • They excluded anyone who had a foreign born parent from the study. So, by design, any decline resulting from immigration could not be detected.

  • Also they were not able to tell whether there was any effect of lower IQ women having larger families and assumed there was none.

They had an agenda and got the result they wanted.

Yeah, they're into replacement/enrichment

That website boasts Norway's population grew 1.7 percent last year with three quarters of that amount being immigrants.

That means last year alone, for every 80 Norweigans they dropped one diversity turd into the pot. Just one year.

Because they've been trying to fight it. It seems like the European countries which know first hand what it's like to be conquered by a foreign power and fighting to keep their countries free

I think I can explain it. It's because the education system is focused on generating new liberals and not educating our children. I truly believe this. Fairness, political correctness, feelings, etc... are what are important now; not being able to read or write, not competition, not achievement - those things are now bad because how will your achieving great things make the lazy kid feel? How will your kicking some kid's ass in a competition affect the loser's self-esteem? If one kid is smart it creates a disadvantage for the stupid nigger kid so the system needs to keep everyone stupid.

Not wrong. Also I.Q. tests are not filled with school curriculum but rather reasoning questions and puzzles. Want to see IQ tests increase, start giving kids more things to play with in their hands that go together. Peg shapes and holes. Gears and cranks. Colors and blocks.

It can't do anything but drop. We have:

  • Flooding of countries with 3rd world retards
  • Horrendous education system designed to stamp out creativity and stifle critical thinking
  • Dysgenic social policies (fuck welfare)
  • Dysgenic medical practices or sickly retards everywhere that should have been left in the woods
  • Dysgenic social organization due to break down of family structure
  • Epidemic levels of malnourishment and obesity
  • Pollution and various poisons entering the food chain.

No mention of racial demographics or controlling for changes in racial demographics in their analysis. You can pretty much just throw this one out.

Taxation of men to pay for single mommery welfare over half a century pretty much ensure that the white average IQ is also going down, even if no niggers were thrown in the mix.

The only thing the presence of niggers ensures is that the loss is at least in the double digits.

In Norway, one study. Would be interesting if repeated in US.

I don't know about a study in the US. But you can look at PISA scores. And the good thing about the US is, it tracks black americans and white americans.

Overall, the PISA score of the US is lower than that of europe. But if you only take the white score, it is higher than many european countries.
I don't know why this is so difficult for people to get. Racial differences exist.

You get the same results in many subjects which are often held out to show socialist Europe does better than the US. Healthcare is a big one, for instance.

Would have the same results. The study doesn't attempt to account for changing racial demographics as a possible confounding variable and both countries have shifted their demographics to include a higher portion of lower-IQ races.

It would be interesting to see the study reproduced in some country that's relatively racially homogenous. Japan, maybe.

Damn, you got a downvoat. Wtf. Fluoride is bad. There are a million ways to 'prevent cavities'. Next time someone claims to be a scientist, but also a liberal, tell them they are picking and choosing the data which is convenient to them and thus destroying their neighbors... and then you sweep the legs, punch the groin and chop the throat. Ok, violence isn't the answer yet.

98% of anything you find in the grocery store has soy or soy lecithin in it. I've picked up raw cuts of meat that had an ingredients lists, and in it was soy. I buy local and grow what I can.

It's the food.

Its the free food, paid by taxing the smartest and strongest, that is preventing the dumbest and weakest from starving before they reproduce.

People who are supposed to have more kids cant afford them because theyre forced to pay for people who should have no kids.

Repeat doing that for decades, and voila, youve successfully bred a german shepherd into an english bulldog.
