Bell Curve, The (TBC); (predicting a breakaway for "Cognitive Elite", includes readers of the book)
An increasingly isolated cognitive elite.
A merging of the cognitive elite with the affluent.
A deteriorating quality of life for people at the bottom end of the cognitive distribution.
Opponents come out of 'would-work', but... critics tend to focus on IQ and race as discriminators, but ignore the very important issue raised by authors, ie, "productivity" (their term for motivation and effort as key to life success) Critics have a Leftist/Progressive/Zionist (anti-Goy) attitude, we on the Right nod in agreement with the authors, this stuff is the natural state of affairs, what else can you expect from a dysgenic, ZOG-controlled society? IOW, the controversy comes mostly from academics, who are predominantly ethnic Jews, who are likewise, progressive-liberal oriented. ("orient" meaning both attitude (v) and from the east (adj))
Those academics claim empathy for "oppressed classes" (blacks, Hispanics, females, LGBTs, etc.) is a cover for their REAL empathy and animosity regarding oppression: it's a fear of being oppressed themselves. Which is ironic because these academics are part of a social-activist salient of a culture war in which some of the Jews (Juice, Judasots) are doing all the oppressing.
Having read the entire book, it's my (Marginotions) opinion that chapters 21 and 22 are maybe the greatest contribution to non-fiction literature, concerning public governance and policy, of all time. I recommend you download the free copy and read them, if nothing else.

hidden curve-ball The Real Problem with Charles Murray and "The Bell Curve" 2017 | sciam (when ever real science interferes with Leftist viewpoint, it gets trashed anyway) "As much as progressives don't want to hear such a thing, this book puts it plainly: It's in the data... Race is a helpful indicator as to whether a person is likely to hold certain capabilities."
This article by Eric Siegel chooses to take offense at Bell Curve's IMPLIED meaning: racism and prejudice are justified (that is his view, not the book's author's view), while admitting they "never actually specify what one is meant to do with the information about racial differences, and never attempt to steer readers clear of racial prejudgment" (a lame complaint, Siegel wants moral imperatives, a supremacist attitude). Be sure to see Murray's Q&A 2014, link below.
