Defining the “Individual”: The Ruler and The Ruled

While I am principally an individualist, unlike most sworn individualists (who often see all people as intrinsically, unequivocally equal; “the sanctity of the individual” and so on) and proportion their politics to this maxim, I believe that at a certain level of heritable intelligence (namely biological IQ: intelligence quotient) a person’s predisposition towards individualism declines sharply — and therefore the need for benevolent collectivism is an (inevitable) necessity in swaying these groups of people of lower intelligence that are going to take on the beliefs of someone or something sooner or later — the crux of my argument is that lower intelligence people are an ideological power vacuum — Why? It’s simple enough — they lack the reasonable individualistic capacity to be resistant to, and critical of malevolent, monolithic, collective thought and its resulting politics — they, quite simply, are lacking the intelligence to discern and exercise sensible, pragmatic individualism: an important factor in holding together a civilization and ensuring its sustainability. The history of these populations’ civilization concurs with this assertion.

The need for parity between ruler and ruled.

If an electorate lacks the intelligence to “connect the dots”, sees only its own interests (due to lack of creative and/or empathetic vision to see benevolent collective goals) — it both lacks comprehension of itself and others and falls prey to predatory politicians and rulers in all their forms.

These are rulers who will outclass such an electorate in intelligence, knowledge, practicality, conscientiousness, time preference, and just about every other trait that is a reliable predictor of success and influence in its numerable forms.

We are seeing this more and more, the Ashkenazi Jews currently rule over whites and all racial groups beneath measured by genetic IQ.

I believe, unlike the absolute assertions of Jordan Peterson that suggest it is only intelligence that accounts for Jewish influence, that, at least some element of Jewish in-group consolidation is the reason the highest echelons of power are dominated by them. There are simply too many smart non-Jewish ethnic whites for this to go unaccounted for me to believe Jewish dominance has no environmental causes whatsoever.

Peterson makes an assertion here about the nature of White-Nationalist’s outlook, one I feel makes an incorrect assumption. A White-Nationalist’s sobriety regarding race comes not from hatred, but acknowledgement of irrefutable differences between groups of humans that must be objectively taken into account, it’s white advocacy rather than white supremacy.

This, mixed in with the fact Jews came to occupy influential financial positions first before anyone else (due to Christian Europeans being unable to partake in usury historically) this helps to explain why Ashkenazi Jews dominate today — they got into positions first due to the lucky societal circumstances, and then consolidated their positions, with an element of persecution and the fact Jews were relatively ostracized, these positions likely were passed on in a nepotistic way; more so than not with the in-group in mind.

Also, most of the immoral, extraordinarily powerful so-called “Jews” are actually Judeo-MasonicSolomonic adherents — by extension, Satanists, this has served to totally mischaracterise Jews altogether. The people who are responsible for the Globalist agenda are not real Jews, they may identify as Jews publicly, but they have Masonic inspiration. For example, their very non-Jewish symbol, the “Star of David”, is a Satanic, Masonic symbol, many half-Jews have fallen for this false non-biblical imagery and have followed the so-called state of “Israel”; thinking it is a Biblical revelation.

See how the Judeo-Masonic elites are obsessed with Israel for non-Jewish reasons.

Stop opposing the broad ethno-religious group that is Judaism, it’s simply not the case that a broad group of some multi-million Jews are colluding against the world, to suggest so makes little sense. More accurately, a small sect of Solomon-praising, Satanic-Masonic “Jews” are to blame for the sheer misrepresentation of the Jewish community, and all conspiratorial behavior that has seemingly come from a broadly “Jewish” establishment.

“Masonry is a search after Light. That search leads us directly back, as you see, to the Kabalah. In that ancient and little understood medley of absurdity and philosophy, the Initiate will find the source of many doctrines; and may in time come to understand the Hermetic philosophers, the Alchemists, all the anti-Papal thinkers of the Middle Age, and Emanuel Swedenborg. Everything scientific and grand in the religious dreams of all the Illuminati, Jacob Boehme, Swedenborg, Saint-Martin, and others, is borrowed from the Kabalah; all the Masonic associations owe to it their Secrets and Symbols.”
— Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma, 33° freemason and founder of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry.

This so-called “light” is, in essence, reverence of Lucifer not as the devil, but as a liberator, a guardian or guiding spirit, or even the true god as opposed to God (YHWH).

Judeo-Masons are obsessed with Israel in the context of Solomon; but look at how Solomon was addressed in the Bible:

“The Lord was angry with Solomon, because his heart was turned from the Lord God of Israel.” — 1 Kings 11:9

The charge against Solomon was that ‘his heart was not perfect,’ or wholly devoted to the YHWH, that he ‘went not fully’ after the YHWH. His was a case of halting between two opinions, or rather, of trying to hold both at once. He wanted to be a worshiper of YHWH and of these idols also — It is clear to see how Satanic Freemasonry is a combined religion of pagan Gods and the Judaic God, this is why the elites identify as “Jews” today, but aren’t truly so.

Jewish Mysticism is not true Judaism, it’s a non-biblical offshoot of what is sanctioned in scripture. The entry of the Kabbalah— developed roughly around the 12th century, derived from the heretical, non-inspired text, the Talmud.

Solomon the Wise was an Israelite, he was a Jew, but he turned away from God (YHWH) and pursued Satanism. Solomon went after Ashtoreth the goddess of the Zidonians, a Goddess connected with fertilitysexuality, and war. Her symbols were the lion, the horse, the sphinx, the dove, and a star within a circle indicating the planet Venus. Pictorial representations often show her naked. She has been known as the deified morning and/or evening star (Luciferian symbology). Solomon also began to praise Moloch/Milcom/Molech (as the Judeo-Masonic Elites do annually at the Bohemian Grove). Solomon built a high place for Chemosh, the abomination of Moab, in the hill that is before Jerusalem, and for Molech, the abomination of the children of Ammon.

Look at the chest of this portrayal of Molech, the “Star of David” is clearly embossed in the metalwork. The “Israel” we see today is NOT Jewish!


The Star of David, (David, the visionary of Solomon’s Temple), is intertwined with Freemasonry’s square and compasses.

Judeo-Masonic Agenda.

Judeo-Masonic Ashkenazi “Jews” closest competitors, those most genetically similar to them, are Caucasian European whites. If whites are removed from the equation as a major demographic, then the genetic (and thus influence) gap will become wider than ever — this is what those in power are attempting to do; diminish “whiteness” in all its forms — they know the significant predictive role of race in political influence and socioeconomic systems, and are (understandably) putting all of their money into brainwashing people to be blind to this reality while carrying out their dysgenic agenda behind the scenes.

As a result of this agenda, such a dysgenic electorate will be more susceptible to emotional arguments, logical fallacies, compartmentalization, designed dialectics, irrationality, superstitions, hysteric trends, and so on — the funny thing is, we can already see how these “minority groups” are already predisposed to all of these things, yet are protected groups nonetheless — and, right before our eyes, are rapidly replacing whites in Western nations as the new dominant population with an army of liberal “progressives” employed to assure us that this will “enrich” us, all the evidence points to the contrary.

Varying intelligence: why collective thought will always have a place in human society, whether we like it or not.

It’s about mitigation — rather than hoping for a sociopolitical Utopia, I believe reasonable mitigation and sensible policy-making is enough to deliver a society that can flourish.

TL:DR — Just as individual thought will always exist relative to collective thought and vice versa; it’s a seesaw based on aforementioned factors. The further towards base consciousness a population gets the more negatively collectivist it becomes, taking on often bad ideas in lieu of their own.

The role of benevolent collectivism (such as the group-think religiosity of cultural and ethical Christianity) for susceptible groups is deliberately overlooked in postmodernist society — because certain globalist forces want to unilaterally over-represent in society genetically and/or culturally limited “individuals” that, on average, simply lack said mental faculties, know-how, background etc (due to numerous factors including historic inbreeding among many others) to represent themselves as capable individuals, and thus are more receptive to collectivism and the centralization of the state. They’re bending over backwards to represent these people: granting copious welfare, slanting society to the their defense against all sensibility, bringing in compelled speech and taboos, white guilt and so forth — it’s quite simply a bubble for a protected group, that, without such an outrageously preferential bubble – would not get very far at all.

The globalist elite want us to believe that “everyone is equal” to all other concerned citizens regardless of significant civilization-defining traits such as intelligence. Hence the ideological over-representation of Cultural Marxist ideology across all institutions owned by the trendsetters.

In lower IQ people — traits such as gullibility, a lack of receptiveness to rationality, and a predisposition towards unthinking group-think collectivism abounds, all this has a biological basis in race. Populations that operate at a more basic consciousness, i.e. concerned with R-brain matters such as sex, domination, resources on the group or individual basis, lacking the empathetic foresight to perceive and act upon wider concerns.

It is not entirely environmental as the Jew-funded Cultural Marxist institutions will insist.

Guess what? Europe will become a continent dominated by low IQ “individuals” that have just as much of a right to vote as rational, moral, and savvy individuals — the UK alone will become a Muslim country by 2050 if current demographic trends persist due to the proliferate compound nature of R-selective populations: by which point, proxy-totalitarianism will have a firmer foothold than ever.

This is bad news for the individual but great news for the centralized state.

If we look back to the societies that are today deemed “antiquated” and the “wrong side of history”, we can see various successful, influential classical societies and groups that practiced eugenics, Rome, Ashkenazi Jewry, ancient Greeks incl. Sparta, and so on. Even one of the Godfathers of philosophy, Plato, suggested the benefits selective mating to produce a guardian class.

Furthermore, we can see how Western Christian societies averted dysgenics by making legal provisions against birth of inferior human beings, this was notably promulgated in Western European culture by the Christian Council of Agde in 506, which forbade marriage between cousins. Something dysgenic populations never really did to an effective extent, the genetic rift thus widened.

Up until the mid-late 20th century, genetic discrimination such as compulsory sterilization of persons with genetic defects, the killing of the institutionalized and, specifically, segregation and genocide of races perceived as inferior was a wide societal norm, the accepted norm was that there are differences between certain groups of humans, whether we wanted to accept that or not for humanitarian reasons was, quite rightly, a secondary matter.

This article, while cautious to frame such practices and conventions as supremacist, malevolent, or otherwise, hopes to illustrate that a dysgenic society will lead to more suffering and conflict than a society with eugenicist practices ever will; and the evidence supports it.

Drawing the line as to what defines an “individual” in relation to sociopolitical systems.

Because a comprehensive system of natural selection no longer exists, (even culturally now) — the distinction between genetics that are passed on by merit and genetics passed on with the help of welfare and so on — is nonexistent, we have R-selective groups being able to pass on their genes where in a truly open, decentralized society this wouldn’t be able to happen.

In simple terms in application to political systems — smart people are often more individualist (thus, conservative and nationalistic), lower intelligence groups are less individualist (more predisposed to group-think, socialism), the role of mass-indoctrination may be able to net some fringes of higher intelligence groups but generally the core principle remains.

I propose we can relatively reliably categorize people into “capable individuals” and “incapable individuals”, largely reliably on the five racial groups and dysgenic/eugenic traits, gender, background, but also (albeit somewhat less reliably) within these groups based on class. (Cultural Marxism is all about denouncing the terms “categorical” or “general” but these are perfectly fine terms, used in the correct context).

While these assertions of justifiable partition certainly sounds collectivist and an affront to individual rights — race realism and the taxonomic significance between biological groups is founded in science; and a factor worthy of serious consideration when regarding any system of social and political arrangement.

I’ve written a whole article (called “the truth about racism”) detailing the significance of race and intelligence, so I won’t go into too much detail here, but here are a few points that help illustrate my argument:

If we cannot see the influence of race and IQ on upholding individual representation, we will fall to absolutist collectivist politics, especially as the “migrant crisis” rapidly undermines Western population of capable (higher IQ) individuals with incapable (lower IQ) individuals.

Representing the voting rights of incapable (low IQ) people is dangerous, I propose an IQ and general/applied knowledge test for eligibility to political vote. While this kind of test cannot determine moral character, at least it can determine intelligence.

Lower intelligence groups are almost always going to organize towards the characteristics of the mob, fragmentation, and group-think, whereas higher intelligence groups tend to represent their own thoughts and interpretations and have awareness of benevolent collectivism, thus shaking-off most inclinations to representing monolithic thought.

They will almost always make irresponsible, hysterical, passionate, and irrational decisions with their rights to liberty, democracy, and self-determination, by extension empowering the state; not themselves or the wider capable individual.

At a higher level of intelligence, the ability for someone to think for themselves increases, hence the commonality of individualism and democracy in Western nations occupied by races of higher overall IQ (even if Western democracies and systems that champion the individual are often subverted — the general attitude towards individualism is more common in people of higher intelligence than without).

In my opinion, this is where the role of independent collective thought such as the Bible comes in, while you can absolutely take on the teachings on your own terms, regardless of your intelligence — the importance of casting a collectivist thought process that engages with several fundamental principles such as “do not not steal”, “do not kill”, “do not lie lie”, etc based on the threat of eternal damnation is the only way to communicate to a group of people not (easily) able to operate on a rational level of thought, the Bible does this exquisitely, it uses the threat of death mixed in with something that cannot be possibly tangibly understood (a deity), the perfect enforcing combination for keeping susceptible populations in line.

The decline of Christianity as a (mostly) positive force of collectivist thought has spelled disaster for the West.

As Christianity has been mocked and destroyed in Western culture at the hands of Jewish influence, we see susceptible (lower intelligence) populations previously protected by the positive collective standards of the Bible now become receptive to new “progressive” hive-mind ideas, it really is one religion exchanged for another more materialistic one, this new nihilistic religion as Christianity’s replacement lacks any direction.

Instead, it opens vulnerable populations up to sophistic ideas that, ultimately, reduce essential liberties, that, without the safeguarding ideals of collectivist Biblical faith, have now been able to infiltrate and infect Western culture.



The Significant Genetic Disparity Between Ashkenazi Jews and Other Races

The genetic disparity between the races has huge implications — and explains the hierarchy of dominance seen throughout human history, and how the Ashkenazi “Jews” (not the religion, but the ethnicity) have always had a more effective capacity to be criminals — because better genetics enabled every instance of a criminal Ashkenazi to operate at a more significant level than any other criminal incidence of any other race.

The extent of Ashkenazi influence has been remarkably large in many countries, despite their very small representation in the world population:

For example in Austria during the 1873-1910 period Jews made up 40% of the directors of the public banks, 70% of the members of Vienna Stock Exchange, 62% of lawyers, 50% of doctors, 57% of journalists, 25% of university faculty members, and 50% of directors who had directorships in more than 7 industrial companies simultaneously.

In Germany during the 1908-1911 period Jews were 36% of prominent businessmen and 21.7% of millionaires. 31% of the 29 families owning more than 50 million marks were Jewish.

If we look to international banker families, we can see that Ashkenazi genes are involved in most examples of major financial families:

The Rothschild banking family has Ashkenazi genes. Pictured: Lord Jacob Rothschild


The Lehman banking family has Ashkenazi genes. Pictured: Emanuel Lehman
The Warburg banking family has Ashkenazi genes. Pictured: Max Warburg
The Lazard banking family has Ashkenazi genes. Pictured: Solomon Lazard
The Sieff banking family has Ashkenazi genes. Pictured: Israel Moses Sieff
The Goldman-Sachs banking family has Ashkenazi genes. Pictured: Marcus Goldman

The Ashkenazi Jew is consistently found at the tip of the power pyramid, or in the vicinity of it, in many cases throughout history, but why is this?

A Jewish conspiracy? Not by design — but by genetic and cultural coincidence.

We can rationalize the Jewish Question. We can understand the cause of international Jewry.

By looking at the biology and the underlying racial characteristics we can easily understand why ethnic Jews are represented in society as they are.

Today’s Ashkenazi Jews have a higher average mathematical and verbal IQ and an unusual cognitive profile compared to other ethnic groups, with somewhat lower spikes in spatial intelligence.

Statistically, only about four in 1,000 Europeans have IQs higher than 140, but for Ashkenazi Jews the figure is 23 in 1,000.

The various environmental and genetic factors that bring about this representation will be covered somewhat extensively in this article.

What is the Ashkenazi ethnicity?

The Ashkenazis are the product of an ethnic group converting to Judaism — Shlomo Sand has argued in the book The Invention of the Jewish People and elsewhere that many Jewish groups came about primarily through the religious conversion of local people.

Not to be confused with Sephardic Jews, Mizrahi Jews, Ethiopian Jews or any other ethnic Jew — Ashkenazi Jews were likely once the Khazars, a people of the Turkoid race that converted to Judaism in approximately the 8th century. Hence why the ethnicity today has the suffix “Jew”, because the ethnicity has been intertwined with the religion for so long, taking on Judaism in an tribal, Talmudic sense, as encouraged by the underlying Ashkenazi genes.

Eran Elhaik, a research associate studying genetics at the Johns Hopkins University School of Public Health concluded from autosomal DNA that European Jews did, in fact, have a Khazarian, (and trans-Siberian) background.

Read more on the origins of ethnic Jews at American Renaissance.

Northeast Asians and Whites are genetically not too far behind Ashkenazis, but still far enough to see a noticeable difference.

Ashkenazi Jews are a genetically distinct population, and the analysis of 128 complete Ashkenazi genomes shows just how distinct they are. Compared to genomes of modern Europeans — in this case, the genomes of 26 Flemish people — the Ashkenazi genomes have 47 percent more novel DNA differences per genome.

This explains why Ashkenazis hold enough of an advantageous genetic difference to exploit the other races, not because the Ashkenazi ethnic group is innately “evil”, but because every incidence of human malice under the Ashkenazi genome is far more capable of exercising that malice relative to other races. As explained by the below chart:

The Ashkenazi Jewish ethnicity has the highest IQ, this naturally translates to all conceivable forms of influence and power.
18,000 years ago. The inhabited climate of the ancient Ashkenazis was likely in the glaciated northern hemisphere.

“Caucasoids and Mongoloids who live in their homelands and in recently colonized regions, such as North America, did not rise to their present population levels and positions of cultural dominance by accident. They achieved all this because their ancestors occupied the most favorable of the earth’s zoological regions, in which other kinds of animals also attained dominance during the Pleistocene. These regions had challenging climates and ample breeding grounds and were centrally located within continental land masses. There general adaptation was more important than special adaptation. Any other subspecies that had evolved in these regions would probably have been just as successful.” — Carleton Coon (1962)

Computer agents (colored dots) simulating prehistoric hunter-gatherer groups are superimposed over a map of Late Pleistocene western Eurasia. Gray shows Pleistocene land area with lowered sea levels, black lines show modern coastlines, white areas show ice sheets. The blue dots represent groups of “modern” humans, red dots represent groups of Neanderthals, and yellow dots represent groups with biological mixtures of modern and Neanderthal genes.
Temperature 10,000+ years ago was drastically different than during the Holocene of today. Climates were much harsher nearer the poles. Groups trapped by land barriers were forced to adapt in harsher conditions.

As you can see from the above map, ethnic Ashkenazi Jews hail from the most challenging climates of antiquity (Europe and Siberia), more so than any other race — multiple evolutionary and situational factors made the Ashkenazi the most advanced of all human genomes.

Ashkenazi Jews are remarkably over-represented in benchmarks of brainpower. Though never exceeding 3 percent of the American population, Jews account for 37 percent of the winners of the U.S. National Medal of Science, 25 percent of the American Nobel Prize winners in literature, 40 percent of the American Nobel Prize winners in science and economics, and so on. On the world stage, we find that 54 percent of the world chess champions have had one or two Jewish parents.

If that wasn’t enough, ethnic Jews comprise up to one third of the student populace at Ivy League schools, and 30 percent of U.S. Supreme Court law clerks.

General behavioral characteristics of Ashkenazis:

  • High ethnocentrism. This causes favoritism and collectivistic behaviors towards the ingroup. Related to this is high self-deception which may be influenced by the often subconscious distinction between the ingroup and the outgroup. Thus, Jews often seem to subconsciously apply different moral standards to non-Jews and Jews such as indignantly demanding that non-Jews should not favor their own group while at the same time seeing it as praiseworthy to support other Jews in various ways. Another effect is the creation and high support for ideologies that are collectivistic towards the ingroup such as Marxism and socialism more generally. The high ethnocentrism contributes to strong ethnic networking and similar behaviors where Jews prefer to work with and promote the interests of Jews before non-Jews.
  • High aggressiveness. In particular towards the outgroup. MacDonald writes that “In a survey commissioned by the American Jewish Committee’s study of the Jews of Baltimore in 1962, ‘two-thirds of the respondents admitted to believing that other Jews are pushy, hostile, vulgar, materialistic, and the cause of anti-Semitism. And those were only the ones who were willing to admit it.'” He also argues for a strong sense of group grievance, resentment, and activism against European and Christian culture as responsible for antisemitism.
  • High psychological intensity. Emotionally intense people are prone to intense emotional experiences of both positive and negative emotions. It may be thought of as a behavioral intensifier or energizer. Causes among other effects strong drives, strong commitments, single-minded persistence, and black-and-white views. One example is that any criticism of Jews or Israel is seen as a potential cause of mass murder of Jews and must therefore be thoroughly repressed.
  • High intelligence. See Jews and intelligence.

Jews’ distinctive collectivist ethnocentrism explains the Ashkenazi push for Greater Israel, a New World Order, and the attempts to eliminate individualist ethnic groups in the West.

Such dissimilarities between Ashkenazis and other populations has led to many historic expulsions due to incompatibilities, adding weight to the evidence that they are genetically very dissimilar to other races.

This is a genetic phenomenon seen between racial populations and is not just restricted to the Ashkenazi expulsions:

Cultural influences on the Ashkenazi genome.

What made European Jews so smart?

Richard Lynn has proposed three reasons.

Christians persecuted Jews more harshly than Muslims did, and the smarter ones were more likely to survive. Also, Jews who lived among Europeans were more or less forced into professions that required intelligence. They were often not allowed to farm, which meant they had to be traders and artisans.

Jews also dominated the relatively high-IQ profession of money-lending because usury was forbidden to Christians. Mr. Entine reports that in 1270, of the 228 adult Jewish males in the city of Perpignan, France, 80 percent were money-lenders. Muslims were not entirely barred from money-lending, so Sephardic Jews did not dominate that activity.

Finally, Prof. Lynn notes that when Oriental Jews mated outside the tribe it was with Middle-Easterners, who have a relatively low average intelligence, whereas Ashkenazim mated with Europeans.

Hyper-selective breeding within Ashkenazi Jewish populations also allegedly occurred. Many Ashkenazi Jews subscribe to a folk theory that attributes Jewish intelligence to what would have to be the weirdest example of sexual selection in the living world: that for generations in the shtetl, the brightest yeshiva boy was betrothed to the daughter of the richest man, thereby favoring the genes.

Other practices of eugenics within Judaism include a long tradition of according high status to scholars as well as wealth which allowed those with higher intelligence to more easily reproduce and their children to survive. The Mishnah states that “under all circumstances a man should sell everything he possesses in order to marry the daughter of a scholar, as well as to give his daughter to a scholar in marriage…. Never should he marry his daughter to an illiterate man”.

Jews have also practiced negative eugenics by disallowing marriages for poor (and likely less intelligent) Jews during certain periods when states explicitly limited the number of Jews. Poor Jews have also been particularly likely to leave Judaism. In contrast to Catholic priests, which may have caused a dysgenic effect on Europeans through their sometimes enforced celibacy, Jewish Rabbis were encouraged to marry young and have children. Rabbis were also often physicians which may have caused better medical care for their children.

This can explain why Ashkenazi Jews score relatively better on verbal subtests since it was verbal ability rather spatial ability that was required for the studies of the Jewish scriptures.

Another argued possibly eugenic practice is that “the “Shadchan,” or marriage broker, may also have played a significant role in Jewish eugenics: The Pentateuch raised Eugenics into a matter of religion … The much-despised Shadchan or marriage broker as an institution had many obvious faults. Yet, in a quiet, unscientific manner he has been the means of curing mere sentiment and passion in the matter of mating of sons and daughters of Israel … The Shadchan is distinctively on the side of Eugenics in ‘regulating’ the union of men and women”.

Abandonment of Judaism.

The abandonment of Judaism (apostasy) hypothesis, in addition to abandonment of Judaism discussed above in the eugenics section, points to an ordinance issued in AD 64 by the Jewish High Priest which required that all Jewish boys should attend school from age six. Within a century Jews had established in principle universal male literacy and numeracy. The studies and later participation in religious activities involved the Jewish scriptures which are relatively difficult texts. This may have caused those with low intelligence to become discouraged by their constantly and publicly displayed inadequacies and therefore renounce Judaism. Another possibility is that those involved in occupations such as farming saw these activities as pointless and wasteful. This has been argued to explain a decline in the number of Jews from 4.5 million in the first century AD to 1.5 million in the sixth century. However, there are several other explanations for this decline such as a general population decline, one million Jews being killed in Jewish revolts, and forced conversions, although it has been argued that these explanations cannot explain the whole decline.

Also before AD 64 there may have been religious demands such as knowing the complex laws that may have caused those with lower intelligence to leave Judaism. Furthermore, the Babylonian exile likely involved only the intellectual elite while many of those who remained may have been absorbed into other populations, which may have caused the Jewish population after the return of the exiles to have unusually high intelligence.

Occupational discrimination.

The occupational discrimination hypothesis argues that Jews in Europe were excluded from certain occupations and therefore were required to work in occupations which often required a high IQ. This hypothesis may also explain the relatively higher mathematical/verbal ability by this being more important in occupations such as money-lending, tax collection, and import-export trading.

It has been argued that the gene variants that cause several genetic diseases that are common among Ashkenazi Jews also increase intelligence among asymptomatic carriers and possibly also those having the disease. For example, those who have Gaucher’s disease in Israel are six times more likely to be scientists/engineers and twenty times more likely to be physicists. Several of the most common Ashkenazi mutations are argued to have appeared at approximately the same time as the occupational restrictions. However, it has been argued that genetic evidence shows that most, though not all, of the Ashkenazi congenital diseases arose from genetic drift after a population bottleneck and show no evidence of selective pressure.

Another argument is that the Jews had left unskilled occupations and moved into urban skilled occupations well before any restriction or prohibition was imposed on them. This was caused by their high literacy and numeracy which in turn was caused by the reason stated in the “Abandonment of Judaism” section. However, there is disagreement regarding this with others arguing that this occupational shift occurred when the restrictions occurred.

Other criticisms include that the occupational mobility is argued to have been limited in the Jewish communities or that intelligence is not the only factor determining success. The latter argument is however a straw man.

The occupational discrimination theory has been argued to be supported by an argued absence of evidence of high Jewish intelligence before the occupational restrictions (apart from the creation of the complex Jewish Bible). This has been disputed with reference to complex Jewish religious writings such as the Mishnah (2nd century AD) and the Talmuds (4th and 6th century). Also, before the Enlightenment, the vast majority of Jewish scholarship was directed within the Jewish community, rather than at science or philosophy. As a result, Jewish intelligence may not have been apparent to non-Jews. The historical record has been argued to support that Jews were quite successful economically in the ancient world and sought urban occupations requiring education.


The persecution hypothesis argues that more intelligent Jews were more likely to survive the persecutions by anticipating persecutions and moving elsewhere, other countries only accepting Jews with education and required skills, being better at hiding during persecutions, and being more able to pay ransoms. This hypothesis may possibly also explain the relatively higher mathematical/verbal ability by this being more important in order to gain wealth in occupations such as those described in the “Occupational discrimination” section. On the other hand, the most successful would have been the most visible and therefore the most likely to be targeted during persecutions.


The interbreeding hypothesis argues that some interbreeding with local populations would affect IQ. This can likely explain only a minor part of the Ashkenazi intelligence since it is higher than that of Europeans. However, it may have contributed to raising the Ashkenazi IQ above the Middle Eastern average. Interbreeding may have been more common among Sephardi and Mizrahi Jews, often with low IQ populations such as those in North Africa and the Middle East, which is one explanation for the lower IQ of Jews from these regions.

The presence of some limited interbreeding does not imply that a group cannot be genetically distinct. In 2012 a Jewish geneticist argued that Ashkenazi Jews, Sephardi Jews, and Mizrahi Jews are so similar genetically and on other characteristics, and so dissimilar from other groups, that they despite some interbreeding with different groups and some varied characteristics constitute a separate race. On the other hand, Ethiopian Jews are genetically distinct from other Jews which explains their low IQ which is similar to that of other sub-Saharan Africans.

Environmental explanations.

Environmental explanations include a long cultural history encouraging education and learning which may possibly in turn raise a person’s IQ.

Genetic isolationism.

Ashkenazi populations tended to marry their own during most of their formative history. This is necessary, because natural selection cannot change the genetic composition of a population if new genes are constantly flowing in from the neighbors and diluting its effects.

Ashkenazi endogamy (marrying within the group) was common, yet marrying within the family less so, this exceptional group preference has made Ashkenazis distinct from other populations.

Jewish traditions of avoiding intermarriage, proselytization, or conquest kept the Ashkenazi population from inbreeding and acquiring other dysgenic effects, this had a genome-preserving effect.

Historical accounts attest that intermarriage was indeed rare, and genetic evidence points to an admixture of about 0.5 to 1 percent of neighboring genes per generation.

In addition to geographic barriers, there may also be cultural barriers that have made admixture more difficult. Examples includes several migratory peoples (such as Jews), who have primarily married within their own group. Also tribes, clans, castes and religions may have rules or customs causing marriages to primarily occur within the group itself.

The likelihood is that the Ashkenazi genome was a combination of well-adapted neanderthal-mongoloid-caucasoid genetics that selectively bred and evolved within its own group, what we have today is a result of this genetic protectionism.

A land barrier bottleneck effect helped preserve the Ashkenazi genetic variant.

Land barriers such as the Caucasus mountains and the Central Asian northern deserts kept well-adapted Ashkenazi populations from interbreeding with less-adapted groups and suffering the dysgenic effects of doing so — it also forced the Ashkenazi population to stay within a harsher climate for longer, as crossing the major geological barriers keeping populations separate was not easy to do, as we see the Ashkenazi population eventually moved eastwards towards Europe, eventually settling in the Eastern and Central regions of the continent.

The bottleneck effect of geographical landmasses.

However, by this point Ashkenazis were already well-adapted to the harsh northern trans-Siberian climate that gave them the genetic endowments we see in them today.

Later on, cultural Judaism and selective breeding kept the genome preserved yet further, whereas other populations practiced inbreeding and suffered dysgenic effects.

The northern ice sheet, a major geographical barrier.
Caucasus mountains, another major land barrier that kept southern hemisphere and northern hemisphere populations separated.
The central Asian deserts, another major geological barrier between populations.


Modern day global climates. 18,000+ years ago this would have been much harsher in the trans-Siberian and European regions.

Genetic inequality and its implications.

The ethnic Ashkenazi rulers have made society look to whites as the “privileged” group above all others.

Also, because whites are a more populous race than Ashkenazis, as well as the aesthetic similarities between the two, the two races often become confused as the same in all regards, this is patently false; Ashkenazi Jews are by far the most biologically privileged, genetically endowed group, and their position in the highest places of influence directly reflects this genetic disparity between their genome and every other racial group on earth.

Ashkenazis are mostly genetically separate from Europeans, with some areas of interbreeding.

It’s clear that people with European ancestry are genetically distinct from those of Asian or African descent, but what’s less obvious is that genetic variation also exists within European groups. In these plots from a study by Elimear Kenny, you can see the genetic variation between major ancestral groups (top) and within a population (bottom). Jewish groups fall into the European cluster on the left, but people with Ashkenazi ancestry (blue) form a unique cluster that is largely distinct from Caucasian (CEU; green) and other Jewish populations (various colors) on the right. Individuals who are part Ashkenazi fall in between the Caucasian and Ashkenazi clusters.

Bringing about genetic parity.

The significant genetic disparity between the races allows certain groups to exercise power over others, for example Whites tend to hold positions above Blacks, and Jews hold positions above both.

The only solution to this would be some form of eugenics program to bring about closer genetic parity, the further one group gets from the rest of the human collective genome — the more severe the consequential disparity, as seen in modern times with the rise of the all-powerful Ashkenazi Jewish banking dynasties.

The more one genetic group acclimatizes to itself, especially if that group holds advantages over other groups (Ashkenazi), this poses an eminent danger as the result is a racial group serving its own in-group interests — a group that feels detached from other racial groups.

The charms and characteristics of each race are, of course, admirable. But geneticists and generally everyone should be aware of what damage genetic disparity can do — as one group drifts from the others and gains traits that allow it to exercise considerable influence over the other groups.

Ashkenazi Jews are a prime example of this occurrence.
