Parsing Success Influencers; Brains, Motivation
TL;DR Population statistics has a tool called "bell curve" (because of the shape; it's a smoother version of frequency histogram, both being mathematics demonstrated with graphics. In this bell curve case, it's the probability of persons having intelligence X, independent variable). The tails are near the bottom horizontal line, (X axis) and on each side of the figure, defining the range of intelligence from lowest to highest recorded, probabilities dwindling to zero. Probability is maximum at center (average (mean) IQ = 100. Since measuring intelligence quotient was invented by Europeans, 100 is the average IQ of white people. Wider studies showed IQ differences between races, a fact hotly disputed by Liberals who want equality.
In their book highlighted in my article "Parsing Success", Left tail represents low intelligence people, the right tail represents high-IQ people, called the 'cognitive elite'. Imagine these tails are like pincers, squeezing the main part of the population from both sides so it bulges up in the middle (its 'mean'). Both of these tails represent a danger to the center. One because they are too stupid, need help to survive, or they are criminal, which has a high statistical correlation to low intelligence (crime is a risky, unwise choice). The other because they are very smart, but contains many psychopaths who are looking after their own interests at the expense of everyone in the middle (except their minions). They are the "special interests" that consistently introduce hazards to normal life.
Plan A is about getting rid of Left tail of the curve by deporting or exiling them in a humane way. Reader needs to understand that 'humane' can include the need for self defense from a diabolical enemy. And sympathy for the Devil is dangerous.
Many 'solutions' to immigration or welfare focus on race because intelligence and productivity have strong indicators in racial discrimination (that's good). But Plan A ignores race, the main issue is productivity, amount and type. How that should be implemented is explored below.
Crux of Plans A and C: Cull off the tails, aka segregate
Plan B was a fail, but set up this post.
These maneuvers are explored along with other related operations in Cull, The Great Population-, scroll down to 'Plan A'. In this case, the cull is a regulated segregation OP, to remove the problem segments of population to somewhere safe for the remaining majority, not necessarily for the removed people.
Plan A: Taking out the Leftail
Gradually Reduce permanent welfare entitlements toward zero, and minimal for temporary aid. This will inspire some low productivity persons to "get a life".
Realistically, many chronically poor will not do this, and probably not many will quietly fade into the night (die). They will get hostile, and go into crime, riots, beggary, etc. Existing laws can deal with this sort of thing, if administrators have the fortitude to do the RIGHT thing. But the scale of nefarious events could become war-like. Call for the Cull.
Measuring productivity: income, net worth, other support; (this data type is already well established)
Measuring type of productivity, quantify social virtue dimension; this is a new departure, but some threads have been started...
Social Virtue, a quest for the GREATER of 'Greater Good' scenarios
The idea of using Internet to document specific persons, is a complex issue, with ethical and moral questions, but if kept secure with barriers to misuse, it could be a beneficial self-defense tactic in a freeish society.
Leftail folks are easiest to identify, and dealing with them is more simple, in theory. Here are Plan A's tactics...
Create a new Job Corps, but for po' folks this time, to be deployed in USA (original Corps sent trainees to foreign countries). It would be supervised by US Army this time, with training "folk-cussed" on domestic low-skill employments, not combat (farm labor, processing food, sorting recyclables, various cleaning scenarios, park maintenance, trash recovery, hazardous duty, etc., plus training on family issues, especially on how to avoid starting one). The concept is that chronically underemployed persons represent an internal danger to national security, and the NEW Job Corps is determined to relieve the pressure. It could be designed to transfer successful trainees into private industry temp-work. Failures would be segregated out to the next tactical OP...
Unemployable degenerates and hopeless cases of retarded and disabled or unloved, uncared-for persons would be transfered elsewhere, their move administered by NGO volunteer operations. First, there would be a search for foreign countries which are willing to accept these persons, all well documented.
(IMO, there is a hazard here in dishonest claims of love and care for disabled persons because so many healthy people earn their livelihood from them. I figure many of these folks love their paychecks more than their 'clients'. These folks need to 'get a life' too.)
For those failing to find foreign acceptance, there would be remote communities set up far from regular populations on cheap land, the precedent set by leper colonies, but with whatever improvements could be arranged by private donations and volunteer efforts. I suggest calling these colonies Low Economic Prosperity Sites (LEPS, also jocular insiders may call them Low Effort People's Slums, LoL). The aim here is to relieve both regular citizens and government of any further attention to these unfortunates. Fate is a harsh mistress.
As supply increases, value diminishes. It's true for all economic goods, including people. Conversely, reducing supply increases value. That means the resulting value is greater than the previous state. We want the Greater Society, don't we?
Removing Leftail reduces social costs and increases per capita income (do the math). Plus, the Leftail is where the bulk of social degenerates abide. Removing them is a eugenics program that depends entirely on discrimination and segregation, a minimalist type of defensive intervention, if done honorably, by the 'book'. The good effects will have immediate impacts, improvements in safety, and relative wealth. Then looking ahead, the improvement in genetic pool will continue to help society seek self-actualization as genetic and cultural influences mingle.
