There was a new post on Monday. Topic: Progressives, then and now. What did social Progressives of the late 19th and early 20th centuries believe about race? How did their intellectual descendants come to believe the opposite thing? What will Progressives believe in the future?
M.G. walks us through background science, history, and implications, in her usual well-organized style, with headings and sub-headings.
I. Born This Way: Progressive from birth?For a stamp of HBD quality, note the approving (with a slight correction) remarks in the comment thread by HBD blogger par excellence JayMan, whom I recommended to VDARE.com viewers a few months ago.
II. What they thought: Leftism in the age of Race realism.
1) Former Abolitionists
3) Social Workers
8a) Southern Progressives
8c) Republicans / Democrats
9) Afros themselves
10) The Blank Slatist
III. What They Lost: The Road away from Reason.
IV. What They Can Teach Us: All that's old is new.
1) Facing up to inequality in education
2) Admitting the need for behavior constraints
3) Focusing on strengths
