important book combining ethology, evolutionary theory, and politics of the second half of the 20th century indeed, one of the most important books off the second half of the 20th c., full stop.Amongst other issues, MacDonald examines with razor sharp logic and an eagle keen eye the issues of Jewish involvement in Communism, the emergence of the Holocaust as a central cultural icon in Western societies, Jewish involvement in the US media, and the role of Jewish organizations in censoring the Internet , Neoconservatism as a Jewish movement, Jewish involvement in immigration reform, the best critical analysis of the Frankfurt School I ve ever seen, psychoanalysis as a method to legitimize Jewish group interests and delegitimize all others, and Jewish involvement in the founding and propagation of the baneful Boasian school of anthropology which, likewise, delegitimizes all gentile genetic group interests.MacDonald shows the inevitable existence of a gentile frontman e.g Mead for the Boasian school Montagu was a Jew born Ehrenburg for every Jewish founded or dominated movement, handily proving the existence of the proverbial shabbos goy , which is tantamount to proving the existence of space aliens in the face of the Fermi paradox He shows likewise that Judaism has nothing to do with religion, though this can be discovered from the genesis of the word in the books of Maccabees, where Ioudaismos is juxtaposed with Ellenismos the advocacy of Hellenic ethnic interests Judaism is nothingthan advocacy for Judaean ethnic interests , and any religion practiced by Jews is definitionally Judaism when taken as a religious descriptor , though this is already well known to any halfway attentive student of the New Testament.MacDonald s work is an enlightening expos regarding Jewish influence in 20th century anthropology via the Boasian school , psychoanalysis, leftist political ideology and behavior, the New York Intellectuals two of whom, Allan Bloom and Saul Bellow, I respect and the Frankfurt School of Social Research, as well as Jewish efforts to shape US immigration policy in favor of open borders and third worlders MacDonald very effectively demonstrates that Jewish involvement in these areas is specifically intended to promote their own particular group interests at the expense and neutralization of all other groups interests.He shows how powerful intelligence Ashkenazim are the most intellectually superior ethny known, with a mean IQ above 110 and ingroup solidarity are, especially when combined, and how dangerous the mixture can be to anyone who is a member of an outgroup or falls afoul of the goals and evolutionary strategy of such an ingroup as the Jews represent Well researched and disturbing analysis of Judaism from an evolutionary perspective.The first paperback edition includes the issues of Jewish involvement in Communism, the emergence of the Holocaust as a central cultural icon in Western societies, Jewish involvement in the US media, and the role of Jewish organizations in censoring the Internet.MacDonald s work is an enlightening expos regarding Jewish influence in 20th century anthropology via the

intended to promote their own particular group interests at the expense and neutralization of all other group s interests.An important read MacDonald provides a theoretical analysis and review of data on the widespread tendency among Jewish dominated intellectual movements to develop radical critiques of gentile culture These movements are viewed as the outcome of the fact that Jews and gentiles have different interests in the construction of culture and in various public policy issues eg immigration policy, Israel Several of these Jewish movements attempt to combat anti Semitism by advocating social categorization processes in which the Jew gentile distinction is minimized in importanceJewish policy was aimed at developing an America charcaterized by cultural pluralism and populated by groups of people from all parts of the world rather than by a homogeneous White Christian culture populated largely by people of European descent Horrible booka totally 2002 rendition of

well reasoned look into the Jewish people quick devolves into an alt right justification for antisemitism Seriously if you think Jews control the world and that the nazis started something good you ll love the book for the rest of the population that isn t antisemitic just avoid it all together I wish I could get my time back from reading this book. This book really brought the racists, White supremacists, anti Semites especially them and anti Immigration reviewers out in force hitting 5 stars almost every time I would like to use Kevin B MacDonald s own words and accomplishments to illustrate this review because if you do not know where the author is coming from the book will not make sense As one reviewer said, it s an updated Protocols of Zion In 2010, MacDonald accepted a position as one of the eight members of the board of This book really brought the racists, White supremacists, anti Semites especially them and anti Immigration reviewers out in force hitting 5 stars almost every time I would like to use Kevin B MacDonald s own words and accomplishments to illustrate this review because if you do not know where the author is coming from the book will not make sense As one reviewer said, it s an updated Protocols of Zion In 2010, MacDonald accepted a position as one of the eight members of the board of directors of the American Freedom Party, which declares America a white Christian nation and advocates for limiting non white immigration into the United States In October 2004, MacDonald accepted the Jack London Literary Prize from The Occidental Quarterly of which he is the editorHe has also said this is mind boggling whites of European descent share biological traits that predispose them to creating ethical societies, claiming that the only people who have ever abolished slavery for moral reasons are white Europeans His anti Semitism is extreme In his own words, Jews, like viruses, destabilize their host societies to their own benefit He feels that anti semitism is therefore a logical and correct attitude for White Americans He served as an expert witness defending notorious Holocaust denier David Irving in his unsuccessful defamation suit against the historian Deborah Lipstadt Those people who gave this book five stars are the enemies of freedom They believe that anyone not just like them is beneath them and should have the rights curtailed, if not actually be subject to genocide There are a lot of them out there And here s the kicker, Jack London, a favourite of schools for his The Call of the Wild and White Fang was one of them Fear mongering baloney aimed at white people that aren t really certain if The Holocaust happened At first I was confused as to why this academic book was being hailed as literature of the highest degree, but then I understood MacDonald was writing the fantasy novel that s trapped somewhere in his head This book is a fictitious farce. Interesting read In this regard it is interesting that many neoconservative Jewish intellectuals in the contemporary United States have rejected corporate, statist ideologies as a direct consequence of the recongintion that these ideologies have resulted in corporate, state sponsored anti semitism Indeed, the beginnings of the neoconservative movement can be traced to the Moscow Trials of the 1930s in which many of the old Jewish Bolshevisk, including Trotsky, were convicted of treason The res Interesting read In this regard it is interesting that many neoconservative Jewish intellectuals in the contemporary United States have rejected corporate, statist ideologies as a direct consequence of the recongintion that these ideologies have resulted in corporate, state sponsored anti semitism Indeed, the beginnings of the neoconservative movement can be traced to the Moscow Trials of the 1930s in which many of the old Jewish Bolshevisk, including Trotsky, were convicted of treason The result was the development of the New York Intellectuals as an anti stalinist leftist movement, parts of which gradually evolved into neoconservatism The neoconservative movement had been fervently anti communist and has opposed ethnic quotas and affirmative action policies in the United States policies that would clearly preclude free competition between Jews and gentiles Part of the attraction neoconservatism held for Jewish intellectuals was its compatibility with support for Israel at a time when Third World countries supported by most American leftists were strongly anti zionist Many neoconservative intellectuals had previously been ardent leftists, and the split between these previous allies resulted in an intense internecine feud p103As expected on the basis of social identity theory, all these movements appear to have a strong sense of belonging to an ingroup viewed as intellectually and morally superior to fighting aginst outgroups seen as morally depraved and as intellectually inferior e.g., Horkheimer s constant admonition that they were among the chosen few desined to develop Critical Theory Within the ingroup, disagrement was channeled into a narrowly confined intellectual space, and those who overstepped the boundaries were simply excised from the movement The comments on Eugen Bleuler to Frued when he left the psychoanalytic movement in 1911 are worth quoting again because they describe a central feature of psychoanalysis and the other movements reviewed in this volume This who is not for us is against us, this all or nothing, is necessary for religious communities and useful for political parties I can therefore understand the principle as such, but for science I consider it harmful in Gay 1987, 144 145 All these features are central to traditional Judaism as well and are compatible with proposing that a basic feature of all manifestations of Judaism is a proneness to developing highly collectivist social structures with a strong sense of ingroup outgroup barriers see PTSDA, Ch 8.p226 227Another important theme is that psychoanalysis and the Authoritarian Personality studies showed strong overtones of indoctrination Theories were developed in which behavior that did not conform to politically acceptable standards was conceptualized as an indication of psychopathology This is apparent in the tendency for psychoanalysis to attribute rejection of psychoanalysis itself to a various forms of psychopathology, as well as in its general perspective that a pathology inducing gentile culture was the source of all forms of psychiatric diagnosis and that anti Semitism was the sign of a disturbed personality The Authoritarian Personality studies built on this tradition with its discovery that the failure to develop a liberal personality and to deeply and sincerely accept liberal political beliefs was a sign of psychopathology.p227 American Jewish capitalists like Jacob Schiff financed Russian radical movements directed at overthrowing the Czar and may well have had a considerable impact Goldstein 1990, 26 27 Szaijkowski 1967 p227 In a real science the fundamental structure of reality cannot be decided a priori and protected from empirical disconfirmation, as is the case whenever groups develop a political stake in a particular interpretation of reality Yet this is precisely what occurred during the Inquisition and the period of medieval Christian religious orthodoxy, and it has been the case in all the intellectual movements reviewed here as well as in much of the Jewish historiography reviewed in SAID, Ch 7 Becuase the movements reviewed here have had an underlying Jewish political agenda, the essential doctrines and the direction of research were developed a priori to conform to those interests And because of the fundamental irrationality of the ideologies involved, the only form these movements could take was that of an authoritarian ingroup that would simply excise dissenters from the group Within these movements the route to a successful career involved, as necessary condition, authoritarian submission to the fundamental tenets of the intellectual movement p233 For a similar reason, Jews have consistently advocated an internationalist foreign policy because an internationally minded America was likely to besensitive to problems of foreign Jewries Cohen, 1972, 342.p241 Ethnic and religious pluralism also serves external Jewish interests because Jews become just one of many ethnic groups This results in the diffusion of political and cultural influence among the various ethnic and religious groups, and it becomes difficult or impossible to develop unified, cohesive groups of gentiles united in opposition to Judaism Historically, major anti semitic movements have tended to erupt in societies that have been, apart from the Jews, religiously or ethnically homogeneous see SAID Conversely, one reason for the relative lack of anti semitism in the United States compared to Europe was that Jews did not stand out as a solitary group of religious non conformists Highham 1984, 156 Although ethnic and cultural pluralism are certainly not guaranteed to satisfy Jewish interests see Ch 8 , it is nonetheless the case that ethnically and religiously pluralistic societies have been perceived by Jews aslikely to satisfy Jewish interests than are societies characterized by ethnic and religious homogeneity among gentiles p242 The Census Bureau has just reported that about half of the American population will soon be non white or non European And they will all be American citizens We have tipped beyond the point where a Nazi Aryan party will be able to previal in this country p244 Postive attitudes toward cultural diversity have also appeared in other statements on immigration by Jewish authors and leaders Charles Silberman 1985, 350 notes American Jews are committed to cultural tolearance because of their belief one firmly rooted in history that Jews are safe only in a society acceptant of a wide range of attitudes and behaviors, as well as a diversity of religious and ethnic groups It is this belief, for example, not approval of homosexulaity, that leads an overwhelming majority of U.S Jews to endorse gay rights and to take a liberal stance on most other so called social issues p244 Nevertheless, it is probable that the decline in evolutionary and biological theories of race and ethnicity facilitated the sea change in immigration policy brought about by the 1965 law As Higham 1984 notes, by the time of the final victory in 1965, which removed national origins and racial ancestry from immigration policy and opened up immigration to all human groups, the Boasian perspective of cultural determinism and anti biologism had become standard academic wisdom The result was that it became intellectually fashionable to discount the very existence of persistent ethnic differences The whole reaction deprived popular race feelings of a powerful ideological weapons Highham 1984, 58 59 p251 The ideology of racial equality was an important weapon on behalf of opening immigration up to all human groups For example, in a 1951 statement to Congress, the AJCongress stated, The findings of science must force even the most prejudiced among us to accept, as unqualifiedly as we do the law of gravity, that intelligence, morality and character, bear no relationship whatever to geography or place of birth The statement went on to cite some of Boas s popular writings on the subject as well as the writings of Boas s protege Ashley Montagu, perhaps the most visible opponent of the concept of race during this period Notagu, whose original name was Israel Ehrenberg, theorized in the period immediately following World War II that humans are innately cooperative, but not innately aggressive, and there is a universal brotherhood among humans see Shipman 1194, 159ff In 1952 another Boas protege, Margaret Mead, testified before the President s Commission on Immigration and Naturalization PCIN 1953, 92 that all human beings from all groups of people have the same potentialitiesOur best antrhopological evidence today suggests that the people of every group have about the same distribution of potentialities Another witness stated that the executive board of the American Anthropological Association had unanimously endorsed the proposition that all scientific evidence indicates that all peoples are inherently capable of acquiring or adapting to our civilization PCIN 1953, 93 see Ch 2 for a discussion of the success of the political efforts of Boasians to domintate the American Anthropological Association By 1965 Senator Jacob Javits Cong Rec., 111, 1965, 24469 could confidently announce to the Senate during the debate on immigration bill that both the dictates of our consciences as well as the precepts of sociologists tell us that immigration, as it exists in the national origins quota system, is wrong and without any basis in reason or fact for we know better than to say that one man is better than another because of the color of his skin The intellectual revolution and its translation into public policy had been completed p252 America has ample room for all the six millions of the Pale i.e., the Pale of Settlement, home to most of Russia s Jews any one of her fifty states could absorb them And next to being in a country of their own, there could be no better fate for them than to be together in a land of civil and religious liberty, of whose Constitution Christianity forms no part and where their collective votes would be practically guarantee them against the future persecution Israel Zangwill, in Ross 1914, 144 p261 I believe that this nation is the last hope of Western civilization and if this oasis of the world shall be overrun, perverted, contminated or destroyed, then the last flickering light of humanity will be extinguished I take no issue with those who would praise the contributions which have been made to our society by people of many races, of varied creeds and colors America is indeed a joining together of many streams which go to form a mighty river which we call the American way However, we have in the US today hard core, indigestible blocs which have not become integrated into the American way of life, but which, on the contrary are its deadly enemies Today, as never before, untold millions are storming our gates for admission and those gates are cracking under the strain The solution of the problems of Europe and Asia will not come through a transplanting of those problems en masse to the United StatesI do not intend to become prophetic, but if the enemies of this legislation succeed in riddling it to pieces, or in amending it beyond recognition, they will have contributedto promote this nation s downfall than any other group since we achieved our independence as a nation Senator Pat McCarran, Cong Rec., March 2, 1953, 1518 p297 While constituting approximately 2.4 percent of the population of the United States, Jews represented half of the top one hundred Wall Street executives and about 40 percent of admissions to Ivy League Colleges Lipset and Raab 1995 note that Jews contribute between one quarter and one third of all political contributions in the United States, including one half of Democratic Party contributions and one foruth of Republican contributions p304 Although multicultuaralist ideology was invented by Jewish intellectuals to rationalize the continuation of seperatism and minority group ethnocentrism in a modern Western state, several of the recent instantiations of multiculturalism may eventually produce a monster with negative consequences for Judism Irving Louis Horowitz 1993, 89 notes the emergence of anti Semitism in academic sociology as these departments are increasingly staffed by individuals who are committed to ethnic political agendas and who view Jewish domination emanating from some multiculturalist ideologues, especially from Afrocentric ideologues Alexander 1992 , and Cohen 1998, 45 finds that multiculturalism is often identified nowadays with a segment of the left that has, to put it bluntly, a Jewish problem Recently the Nationof Islam, led by Louis Farrakhan, has adopted an over anti Semitic rhetoric Afrocentrism is often associated with racialist ideologies, such as those of Molefi Asante 1987 , in which ethnicity is viewed as the morally proper basis of self identity and self esteem and in which a close connection exists between ethnicity and culture Western idealos of objectivity, universalism, individualism, rationality, and scientific method are rejected because of their ethnic origins Asante accepts a naive racialist theory in which Africans the sun people are viewed as superior to Europeans the ice people.p313 Indeed, fear of anti Semitism on the left has been the major impetus for founding the neoconservative movement see Gottfried 1993, 80 the final resting point of many of the New York intellectual and political evolution was discussed in Chapter 6 As Gottfried points out, the cumulative effect of neonconservatism and its current hegemony over the conservative political movement in the United States achieved partly by its large influence on the media and among foundations has been to shift the conservative movement toward the center and, in effect, to define the limits of conservative legitimacy Clearly, these limitss of conservative legitimacy are defined by wheter they conflict with specifically Jewish group intersts in a minimally restrictive immigration policy, support for Israel, global democracy, opposition to quotas and affirmative action, and so on p314 As anti Semitism develops, Jews begin to abandon the very movements for which they originally provided the intellectual impetus This phenomenon may also occur in the case of multiculturalism Indeed, many of the most prominent opponents of multiculturalism are Jewish neoconservatives, as well as organizations such as the National Assocation of Scholars NAS , which have a large Jewish membership The NAS is an organization of academics opposed to some of theegregious excesses of feminism and multiculturalism in the university It may well be the case, therefore, that the Jewish attempt to link up with secular political ideologies that appeal to gentiles is doomed in the long run Ginsberg 1993, 224ff essentially makes this point when he notes that these is increasing evidence for anti Semitism among American liberals, conservatives, and populist radicals p315 The case of multiculturalism is particulraly problematic as a Jewish strtegy In this case one might say that Jews want to have their cake and eat it too Jews are often caugth between fervent affirmation of the Enlightenment and ciriticsm of it Many Jews bleieve that the prelacement of the Enlightenment ideal of uniervaslism with a politics of difference and fragmented multi culture would sontitute a threat to Jewish achievement At the same time, they recognize the dangers of a homogeneous monoculture for Jewish particularity Jews seek to rescue the virtues of the Enlightenment from the shards of its failures and salvage an incluisve vision from multiculturalism, where the fragmentation and divisiveness now reign Biale, Galchinsky, and Heschel 1998, 7 Multicultural societies with their consequent fragmentation and chronic ethnic tension are unlikely to meet Jewish needs in the long run even if they do ultimately subvert the demographic and cutlural dominance of the peoples of European origin in lands where they have been dominant p 315 316 I ve always been open to
