The latter is more "go to Israel and have a lovely ethnonationalist state and then we can do the same here, once everybody "nonwhite" goes back to wherever the hell they should go back to."

And now with Trump it's LOL there were never any NORMS? NORMS ARE A FREE SPEECH VIOLATION!!!

What if rich people could drive on roads for free, too? Free libraries? What if Jared Kushner wanted to check out a book?!?!"

WeWork founder Adam Neumann 'helped Kushner craft Mideast peace plan' - U.S. News - Haaretz.com - WeWork Founder Adam Neumann Helped Kushner Craft Mideast Peace PlanThe now disgraced ex-CEO reportedly claimed that three people would save the world: Mohammed bin Salman, Jared Kushner and Neumann himself

Eschaton: Speaking Of - Brain geniuses. -- In conversatiosn< with people inside and outside the company, Neumann's pronouncements became wilder ... told one one investor that he'd convinced Rahm Emanuel to run for president in 2020 ... told colleagues that he was saving the women of Saudi Arabia by working with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to offer women coding classes ... Neumann said three people were going to save the world: bin Salman, Jared Kushner, and Neumann ... after the news broke in October 2018 that Saudi agents tortured dissident and Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi and carved his body with a bone saw, likely on order from the crown prince himself, Neumann told George W. Bush's former national security adviser Stephen Hadley that everything could be worked out if bin Salman had the right mentor. Confused, Hadley asked who that person might be, according to a source familiar with the meeting. Neumann paused for a moment and said "Me" -- Of course they're rich brain geniuses, so who is really the stupidhead? (all Jews except for Bonesaw)

Eschaton: The Best People - I keep coming back to this, but it's increasingly clear that a big problem with our elites is that they assume elites are the best of the best. Of course we all think WE are, personally, the best, but I mean they think members of their club are the best. Sure some of those club members are idiots. They aren't blind. But if there are idiots in the BEST club, imagine the idiots in all the other clubs?

White Matter Sexual Dimorphism of the Adult Human Brain (2017) ... In the VBM analysis, we found males to have larger WM, compared to females, in occipital, temporal, insular, parietal, and frontal brain regions. In contrast, females showed only one WM region to be significantly larger than males: the right postcentral gyrus in the parietal lobe region. Although, on average, males showed larger global WM volume, we did not find any significant difference in global WM volume between males and females ... We found regional brain white matter sexual dimorphism, but we did not find any evidence of such dimorphism for global brain white matter. Although sex differences in brain structure may explain differences in behavior, conditions, and psychophysiology, studies that showed regional brain volume differences have been less consistent.

Frontiers | Brain Differences Between Men and Women: Evidence From Deep Learning | Neuroscience (2019) ... These mean that men appear to have more gray matter, made up of active neurons, while women may have more white matter for the neuronal communication between different areas of the brain ... men's brains likely have more complex features as reflected by significantly higher entropy. These results indicated that the gender-related differences likely exist in the whole-brain range including both white and gray matters ... The gender-related morphological difference at the corpus callosum has been previously reported, which may be associated with interhemispheric interaction ... Thus, there is very likely a gender-related difference in the cerebellar-thalamic-cortical circuitry. This difference may also be related to the reported gender differences in neurological degenerative diseases such as Parkinson's disease ... the gender-related difference in the limbic-thalamo-cortical circuitry may explain the gender differences in thalamic activation during the processing of emotional stimuli or unpleasant linguistic information concerning interpersonal difficulties ...

The Queen Gave Cover to Soviet Spy Anthony Blunt at Buckingham Palace.

Blunt was the long-sought Fourth Man in the ring of five spies recruited at Cambridge University by the Russians in the 1930sall of them ended up as moles deep inside British intelligence throughout World War II and during the most dangerous years of the Cold War ... the former Edward VIII and subsequent Duke of Windsor ... The likelihood is that they revealed a far longer and more incriminating series of contacts between Edward and the Germans dating from before he actually became king. And the reason that we don't know for sure how far his treachery extended is that it was Anthony Blunt who was in charge of the operation to locate and retrieve the German files.( ... and then they make the hero Turing kill himself ... aristocatic blood is thicker than treason but it's deeper than you thought)
