Richard genuflects to the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. I tend to think that by and large, the “whole truth” is for suckers and saints. And while I’m sure I’m not the latter, I strive not to be the former either.
In the comments below I wrote that the ?truth? of racially determined intelligence will tend to undermine all of the bourgeois institutions of the American middle class, from economics of thrift and hard work to civicly engaged volluntary associations to notions of fair play, etc., that are vital to healthy institutions across the board, from families to courts. What possible good can come of labeling some group “dumb”? (Truth for truth’s sake is not an acceptable answer from those who desire to function as a political elite.) To de-incentivize assimilation and acquiescence to the terms of the social contract? There’s enough of that going around already if you ask me.
