The enstupidation of France

The USA, the UK, and Denmark are not the only countries to see an observable decline in average IQ:
  • Dutton and Lynn have identified a 4 point decline in French IQ.
  • Dysgenics and replacement migration are proposed as causes.
  • French IQ losses are found to be associated with the Jensen effect (ρ = .833).
  • A common factor of g loadings and 3 biological variables loads on the loss-vector.
  • This supports biological causation.

Dutton and Lynn report secular declines in Fullscale IQ evaluated using WAIS of four points a decade in France between the years 1999 and 2008–9. It is posited that the trend may have a partially biological cause, stemming from dysgenic fertility and, to a lesser extent, replacement migration. Given that these, and other biological phenomena are associated with the Jensen effect, it is expected that if they are the principal causes of the IQ decline then the secular change should also be associated with the Jensen effect.

Furthermore if it can be demonstrated that the vectors of secular IQ decline, g loadings and the vectors of other biological indicators share variance, then the case for biological causation will be strengthened. Using the method of correlated vectors and error disattenuation, the secular IQ declines are shown to be associated with a high-magnitude Jensen effect (ρ = .833). A multi-vector common factor comprised of the vector of g loadings along with the vectors of three biological variables (subtest heritabilities, dysgenic fertilities and simple visual reaction times) was found to load substantially on the secular IQ decline vector (λ = .723).

These findings indicate that the French secular IQ loss likely has a primarily biological cause.
What is frightening about this decline in French IQ is how rapidly it has taken place. My estimate of a post-1965 four-point IQ loss in the USA was a minimum estimate based solely on replacement migration, but considering that dysgenic fertility is also a factor in the USA, the actual decline is almost certainly worse.

If replacement migration is also the lesser factor in the US case, then the post-1965 IQ decline in the USA could be as much as 10 points. However, US immigration has been higher and US native birth rates have remained higher than in France, so something on the order of 7-8 points is more likely. This is not insignificant; it is the difference between the current USA and Sierra Leone.

Immigration isn't just bad for a nation's economy, it is horrifically damaging to a nation's prospects for the future.

Yes, -4 points a decade is scary. Just a thought ... immigration to France is largely from North Africa (Algeria and Morocco) and France's former colonies in Central Africa. These groups have low IQs, notably even lower than most recent immigrants to the USA.

I was looking for the French marriage and divorce rates and ran across this via wikipedia,

In 2014 [...] 1,331 same-sex couples married in the French capital city of Paris, making up 13,5% of the total number of weddings performed in the city.

All the numbers are fudged. All the definitions are flexible. It's unlawful for a French man to get his children blood tested to learn if they're really his. Soon it may be "de-humanizing" to count migrants. Or say Migrant. They're vacationers, just taking a little holiday from their war-zone.

Here's my proposal: Make Public School grades one to six and High School grades seven and eight. Budgets will contract and the graduation rate will sky rocket.

Found out recently that France actually considered Algeria to be not a colony but an actual extension of French territory since they took possession of it and until its independence. Apparently, they didn't make it through the Enlightenment/Revolution unscathed, developing their own version of propositional nationhood. Anyone could (and ought to be) inculcated with French values and become, essentially, French by their reasoning. You can see this thought process at play in the military aspect of the Revolution itself all the way through Napoleon's imperial enterprise.

Crazy when you start to see how the twin pathologies of the French and Germans/Prussians have shaped modern Europe--the French messiah complex and then the German excess/inability to moderate political projects (Bismarkian machinations, militarism, fascism, and now war guilt/mass immigration). Put them together, and that's the E.U. in a nutshell.

low iq / poor socialization people breeding profusely.

this is as opposed to high iq / well socialized people providing the majority of the children.

IF you pay women to have children regardless of the idiotic mate choices they are prone too
THEN you exclude the latter group from being your primary source of children by government fiat.

We are rapidly replacing civilization with non-civilization, completely undoing the last 2000 years. Given this trend, it is actually an optimistic assumption that we'll keep most of the technology of today for use after the grand collapse and not slip back to pre-industrial societies filled with violence and filth. We might not make it back to present levels of knowledge for 500-800 years.

Aren't the Chinese below replacement fertility too at this point? I've seen projections of the Chinese population peaking in 2020-2030 and then declining. The Japanese are just ahead of the curve.

No prizes for guessing which of the two nations I would consider more homogeneous, stable, and generally better equipped to handle the problems of population decline and the failure of an economic system based on exponential growth. Not to say Japan could necessarily fight off China if it came to that, but I definitely wouldn't write them off. Plus they could probably go nuclear rapidly in the face of an existential threat.

Whatever its faults, the Japanese approach to the problem of an ageing population has an important advantage over the Western strategy of importing millions of immigrants to pad the numbers: the Japanese will still be around by the end-game.

That said I'm with our host in expecting the nations of Europe to flip the board before the end-game.

Do we really think that actual IQ of humanity is decreasing or is it just the fact the the IQ of less intelligent people are now being included in the sample

-- maybe its simply sample vs population statistics -- as the sample size grows, the shape of the curve changes -- it still allows for the existence of the +2, +3 SD etc smart people but if it follows the standard process as the sample size grows, the distribution gets narrower and the peaks get higher...

-- maybe IQ tests (and indirect measures of IQ) don't apply as well to other populations. This is all new science and has not really be proven thru the process of engineering... although engineers tend to have higher IQs.

I don't know if we know what the source of IQ is (genetics, environment, nutrition during growth, economic access...) -- is it brain size ? (there are some mammals with larger brains than humans) -- elephants, dolphins, whales .. look how good it worked out for them.

I am really under the assumption that humanity IQ hasn't changed ... we are just getting exposed to stupider people... used to be as long as you stayed out of the town square you wouldn't run into the village idiot .. now every villages idiot can access the internet, start a blog or get their own web show.. and eventually the get a cable TV news show or run for office...

You guys are too defeatist. The real question should be, "How do we correct for dysgenic breeding?"

Obvious options:
1. Child tax breaks that vary with the intelligence and/or income (as a proxy) of the parents. Note that this can be used as a goad against bastardy by reducing the tax writeoff.

2. Contraception as a mandatory prerequisite to receive welfares. Some people may raise religious objections...they will be referred to their church for welfares.

3. Public encouragement of voluntary participation in sound genetic policies.

A major point to remember is that nobody gets to pick his genes. Therefore, there is no moral virtue in being a genius, no moral opprobrium in being slow-witted. A man IS responsible for what he does with those genes - and a slow-witted man who has one child should be held in higher regard than the genius who has none.

These moderate shifts in the mean cause huge shifts in the tails - vastly more retarded, far fewer potential geniuses. That shift is amplified by the remaining smart people being indoctrinated with nonsense, having their institutions taken from them by midwits, affirmative action hires and left-wing ideologues, as well the best brains being diverted from productive careers to finance.

Realize that the smart owe no obedience or obligation to the midwits, let alone the dimwits. It is not only wrong to let stupid people run things, they are the enemies of all that can be achieved through intelligent action, all that is good in civilization, so must be treated as enemies. Of course frontal assault is a bad tactic for this situation; pretense and deception are the best tools in a war of brains against numbers.

"The enstupidation of France"

While you're completely right, of course, your term is imprecise. It's not the enstupidation of France, it's the non-France-ification of France. Once France is majority Arab and African, it simply won't be France any more. It was Gallia once, it was undoubtedly something else before that, then it was Frankreich, then France, and in the future it will be something stupider and browner. Maybe the actual humans can manage to keep some little vestige like Bretagne or something.

@23 clk - All that has been studied and the studies repeatedly replicated.

"Do we really think that actual IQ of humanity is decreasing or is it just the fact the the IQ of less intelligent people are now being included in the sample"

The topic was the decline within advanced nations specifically, but yes, the average world IQ is declining as Africans make up greater fractions of the world population.

"-- maybe its simply sample vs population statistics -- as the sample size grows, the shape of the curve changes -- it still allows for the existence of the +2, +3 SD etc smart people but if it follows the standard process as the sample size grows, the distribution gets narrower and the peaks get higher..."

No.

"-- maybe IQ tests (and indirect measures of IQ) don't apply as well to other populations."

No.

" This is all new science and has not really be proven thru the process of engineering..."

IQ studies go back over a hundred years and have sample sizes in the tens of millions. It is neither new nor unproven.

"I don't know if we know what the source of IQ is (genetics, environment, nutrition during growth, economic access...) -- is it brain size ? (there are some mammals with larger brains than humans) -- elephants, dolphins, whales .. look how good it worked out for them."

Your ignorance of the research isn't informative. The best correlate with IQ is the ratio of brain area to body area. Brain mass to body mass also has a fair correlation with intelligence. Intelligence in adults in developed nations is about 80% genetic, 20% random, 0% shared environment. Malnutrition or environments equivalent to being locked in a box for the first few years of life can depress IQ, but overfeeding or enriched environments have no long-term positive effect.

"... used to be as long as you stayed out of the town square you wouldn't run into the village idiot .. now every villages idiot can access the internet, start a blog or get their own web show.. and eventually the get a cable TV news show or run for office..."

Those people aren't all that dumb. Really stupid people, people at the level of the average Bantu, can't begin to do those things. Irrigation is functionally beyond them, even when they are given pumps. Many of them can't understand the idea of continuity - you literally can't teach them why they can't get cable TV in a moving car, they can't grasp that the street in front of their apartment is the same one that runs past the welfare office. (Actual examples.)

For an education on the study of intelligence read The Bell Curve, lagriffedulion.f2s.com, Jayman, drjamesthompson.blogspot.com, the letters of Grady Towers, Hunter & Schmidt and their sources.

Didn't a recent anthropological study find that the IQ of Homo Neanderthalensis was significantly higher than that of the original Homo Sapiens?

Here's the Neanderthal low-down In case the punters didn't know. About 55,000 years ago, the weather began to fluctuate wildly from extreme cold conditions to mild cold and back in a matter of a few decades. Neanderthal bodies were well suited for survival in a cold climate—their barrel chests and stocky limbs stored body heat better than the Cro-Magnons. However, the rapid fluctuations of weather caused ecological changes to which the Neanderthals couldn't adapt and they were either wiped out or absorbed by the smaller more adaptable Cro-Magnons.

Neanderthals were evidently cold climate specialists and may have been an SD or three higher in IQ than the CM, just as cold climatey whitey Alt-Rightey wants to believe himself to possess. That didn't work out too badly when the race market next went bull, so what's the beef with the current bear market correction?

This is the most depressing blog post I've ever read. It makes one wonder if the situation is completely hopeless.

The way I see it, in a best-case scenario, Trump becomes President, stops immigration (at least temporarily), and maybe even deports a significant number of illegal immigrants (though that's probably unlikely). But that will only slow the inexorable decline of our civilization. It will not stop it. We've still got the trends of feminism and the welfare state to encourage dysgenic reproduction. Indeed, if Trump succeeds, it might give people the false belief that our problems are solved and we'll become even less vigilant.

So the question is, what, if anything, can be done to reverse this dysgenic slide? Obviously, we need policies that encourage the best among us to reproduce more, and the worst to refrain from reproduction, but we can't even have that conversation right now, much less actually implement any practical policies.

I fear that the only way we can even get to the point where we have such a conversation is under a nationalistic dictatorship. To that end, should we actually be rooting for Trump to fail so that a more violent, revolutionary leader fills that role in the future? Do we need to go John Galt? Should we actually be encouraging mass violence and economic catastrophie so that a true nationalistic revolution can take place?

@ 24 Napoleon 12pdr "A major point to remember is that nobody gets to pick his genes. Therefore, there is no moral virtue in being a genius, no moral opprobrium in being slow-witted."

By the same reasoning then, there is no moral virtue in being good-natured and hard-working and no moral opprobrium in being violent and lazy since these characteristics are shaped by genetics as much as is intellect.


Conscientiousness, vigor, agreeableness, political orientation and most other traits are primarily genetic. Those who aren't hard-working are so because of their genes just as much as those who aren't smart. All traits are genetic to some degree. Those that are handicapped by their genes aren't responsible for that - they can't change those traits - but it is a fault and it is theirs, therefore it is their fault even though it is not their responsibility. Judgment of the worth of people can only be based on their characteristics and habits regardless of whether those are more genetic or less. The ones who are good-willed and work hard do so because of their genes or other factors beyond their current control, just as smart people are smart because of their genes.

Welfare states will die because there's no more money to fund them. They'll die even faster if the welfare zombies start rioting to try to keep Trump out of the White House, as some have suggested is planned in the run-up to the election.

If Trump is for real, he can do the two following items to help matters without even resorting to deportations - something Lügenpresse would love to whine about.

1. Arrest the chamber of commerce types who employ illegals and come down on them hard - use the asset forfeiture laws against them along with long terms in Club Fed next to Shitavious so they can personally experience the joys of die-ver-city.

2. Congress (being filled with D-jersey and R-jersey quads of the ruling Bankstein Party) can appropriate all the welfare money for Latrina and the Section-Ape programs it likes, but Trump is under no obligation to actually spend it. Trump could even spend it on enforcement of rules - against SJWs, Churchians and others who are responsible for the mess.

Do these and many of the imported wise-latrinas will self-deport for easier marks, maybe even back to failed-states like Carlos Slim's Mexican fiefdom.

The smarter would have children if they didn't have to spend so much money and time protecting themselves against the stupid and predatory underclass and genocidal Marxists.

Soft eugenic social policy would be trivial to implement. Just allowing biological kids to count as a full tax-payer, rather than a useless deduction, would encourage rich people (an imperfect proxy for intelligent people, admittedly) to have more kids, and could make a big difference.

A fixed individual limit (rather than a per-child) on welfare would also force even the dumbest of gibs to think twice about having a kid.

There are all sorts of humane and indirect ways to improve/steer the genetic fitness of a country. The jewish expulsion of darwinian thought from anthropology/sociology has been disastrous (see chapter 2 of The Culture of Critique.)

Trump will have broad flexibility to address lots of issues related to immigration. But those measures will only last for the duration of his tenure (though a wall will have some durability).

I don't believe Trump himself has been red-pilled enough to attempt the drastic measures necessary to get us on a positive eugenic track. He certainly isn't going to unilaterally halt welfare payments.

What's needed is for contraception to go hand-in-hand with welfare checks, and for massive tax deductions to be given to parents with multiple children. (These must be tax deductions, not tax credits.)

It would be nice to figure out a way to incentivize intelligent young women to get married and have children rather than waste their peak fertility years in college and grad school, but I can't figure out a way to structure it.

The jewish expulsion of darwinian thought from anthropology/sociology has been disastrous (see chapter 2 of The Culture of Critique.)

Reading that one right now. Nauseating stuff.

Redistrbutive tax systems contribute to smaller families of smart people.


The West outisde of the US is crazy crowded. You can't walk a mile in the UK or anywhere else without running into city. This suggests to me that we are over carrying capacity for our race in Europe

The US is not like this of course but we have our own issues.

In any case urban living, and automation make families smaller. Also US workers and I suspect others have taken roughly a 50% pay cut (measured as percent GDP) since 1973. This charts quite nicely with the decline in birth rates, If you look the decline started around 1970 or so and it was around this time the US entered a recession.

This decline was before modern feminism and in fact the first US population fall-off from around 1930 to 1944 or so. This was with marriage 1.0, without the pill or abortion and in a highly religious population

And yes it was above 2.5 in 1940 to 1944, the USG was basically redistributing the entire economy and fertility often rises during a war. Also infant mortality rates were drastically higher in that period, roughly 8x higher.

If I did the math correctly, you'd have to hit near 3 for replacement fertility at the time. I think it would be about 2.8 to replace, a bit higher in the 30's which again my math is sketchy suggest a fertility of 2.0 as seen in 1931 would be 1.3 or so in modern terms

With that in mind it seems to me the real cause of the baby boom wasn't huge numbers of children being born but antibiotics.

of course being who we are we don't find some way to to keep them as State secret and shared them with the low IQ types which gives us the results we have today

No good deed goes unpunished.,

Part of the fertility problem is pure economics.

150 years ago, a child could be put into the workforce at 13. Seven years of education sufficed to make him economically viable.

75 years ago, a 7th grade education was considered inadequate. 12 years of education were considered essential.

Today, this has gone up to 16 years. A 22-year-old is just ready to enter the serious adult workforce, where 150 years ago, he would have been working for nearly a decade.

Yes, I know the schools were tougher then. But it doesn't invalidate the basic fact that it takes a LOT longer to raise a child to self-sufficiency today than it did in the past.

Napoleon, are you still in college? Or perhaps hampered by an IQ in the 120-130 range?
I am still learning that what seems obvious to some of us isn't as easy to recognize by others.

Read the conversations of youth and adults of the colonial era, and look up their literacy rate. They were much, much more intelligent as a whole than we are today.

Not only has our IQ been genetically watered down, we have an incredible array of other factors weighing against us in the modern age:

1) Electric lights causes us to get much, much less sleep - for most of our lives, our brains are deprived of the rest needed to process learning and recharge the glial cells.
2) Modern compulsary schooling on the prussian model - one size fits all, put all children of the same age together rather than mixed ages, demand that all learn at the same pace.
3) Forcing children to read simplistic dreck that is filled with lies.
4) Horrible diets - we eat far, far too much, eat over-processed foods, meat used to be a treat and came from a much healthier animal, there were no artificial additives, processed sugar was mostly for the very wealthy, and so forth.
5) Television - Incredible impact on the national IQ, all in the negative direction
6) Children are rarely allowed to play outdoors - the brain is richly developed by outdoor activities such as exploring, gardening, working, hunting, farming.
7) Lack of parental involvement - mom and dad are tired all the time and can give hardly any attention to their child
8) Very few adults today continue to consciously learn and improve themselves
9) Pill-popping - No one is told to suck it up, many are medicated from childhood forward, with a related low-grade impact on their brain chemistry.

There are more such as pesticides, pollution, and such, but the above factors are really pounding on the IQ of the affluent and poor alike.

Then there is the race-mixing part of the equation which has had a sudden and dramatic and measurable impact, unlike the others mentioned above which have been gradual and widespread.

It is true that the French government collects no statistics on the racial differentials of birth rates. However, there are other medical statistics that can provide an estimate of the racial breakdown of births. I read on the net some years ago (I think Razib's gnxp site) where the French health authorities stated that 30%(!!) of all "French" children under 5 years old were at risk for Sickle cell anemia, a genetic condition almost exclusive to Sub-Saharan Africans (1% of Arabs have this condition). You are free to draw your own conclusions from this.

On a whim, I recently took a sample ACT which was supposed to be representative of the real thing. The kids I tutor were taking it, so I figured why not. Despite rushing through it in about half the allotted time and not double-checking my answers, I scored two points higher than I did in high school 30 years ago (3 points if you don't adjust for when they renormed it a while back), when I was actively studying those topics every day.

Now, maybe I've gotten smarter or more knowledgeable, but I doubt that's the case with things like advanced math that I haven't used since then. It's possible I've gotten savvier about the kind of people who write tests and what they expect. But it seems at least as likely that the tests have gotten dumber to match a dumber population.

You may have missed this from last year -- the reality may in fact be about as bad as you suspect ...

"We currently believe that general intelligence has declined by approximately two standard deviations (which is approximately 30 IQ points) since 1800 -- that is, over about 8 generations."

"Such a decline is astonishing -- at first sight. But its magnitude has been obscured by social and medical changes so that we underestimate intelligence in 1800 and over-estimate intelligence now."

"On the other hand, magnitude and rapidity of decline in world class geniuses in the West (and of major innovations) does imply a decline of intelligence of at least 2 SDs -- so from that perspective the rate and size of decline is pretty much as-expected."

I read this. I also read a debunking of it that was posted by one of the three (I forget which one): Razib, Jayman, or Gregory Cochran.

For those into data visualization, here's an interactive map displaying country-to-country net migration (2010-2015) quite nicely.

It also notes that immigration is the new Godwin’s Law, i.e., “As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of someone tying it to immigration approaches 1.”

It's not that they don't collect them, it's actually illegal in France to collect, store, request or in any way "notice" any kind of racial statistics (clearly a concerted effort to hide the true extent of the replacement).

One FN mayor in France was threatened with court for saying most children in the local school were arabs (he'd looked at a list of pupils names and estimated from the number of Muh'ham-head's and Fat-ima's. The liberals actually tried to sue him for collecting racial data!) http://galliawatch.blogspot.fr/2015/05/mayor-reveals-646-of-pupils-are-muslims.html

As you say, the sickle cell data is the only available estimation and it is shocking, see here for a summary of the last few years of data
The Africanization of France...as of 2014.
[tl;dr "...The figure for 2007 was 28.45 percent, for 2010 31.5 percent, for 2012 34.44 percent, and for 2013 35.7 percent... ]

galliawatch is a good English language blog covering the gallic decline or fdesouche is a good place to start for readers of French.

France is an obvious weak point for the africanisation of Europe. Because of their mad approach to colonialism (declaring their colonies to actually, physically be part of France) French nationality is purely political and linguistic and unrelated to geography.

A polynesian born on an island in the pacific is as French as someone born in the savoyard alps. An anglo-saxon, anglophone like myself will never be considered French despite 20 years of integration whereas Muh'ham-head and Fat-ima will instantly become French once they step off the ferry in Marseille and can start collecting their "alloc" (social security) from their social housing while their brood disrupts the local schools.
