    By the way, I heard on the BBC World Service that we're all getting less intelligent. I must get a listen at that in more detail, seeing as there are still plenty of people about swearing a hole in a bucket that intelligence is mostly inherited.
    Is the "Flynn Effect" invalid, has our intelligence plateaued?, have you a link?

    A motley crew of disgruntled pseudo-intellectual trolls on the fringes of academia, who feel entitled to a platform through which to exercise their right to free speech; despite being rejected by mainstream academics as cranks and quacks.

    I love the whole thing about being against "identity politics" when that only applies to Blacks, Hispanics and people of Christian European descent but not Jews (Isnt Ben Shapiro Chabad and an admirer of Rabbi Meir Kahane?) in their eyes.

    A bunch of alt-lite neckbeards styling themselves as intellectuals despite the fact that they haven't an original thought between them.

    Nearly all of them are pretty extreme when it comes to Islam. Also it is interesting how they will fire away at Feminism but never seem to attack the whole "Men's Rights" things.

    It turns out that the crusaders against identity politics are consistent in defending the interests of cis straight white men.
