Re: Duelling Psychometricians

Just finished the video.  Very touching wrap-up at the very end, with Charles appreciating James Flynn, and Flynn giving a moving tribute to Arthur Jensen.  This–Flynn, I mean–is a guy who had earlier said: “Someone described me as a liberal.  I’m not.  I’m a socialist.”

Flynn’s last words in the wind-up:  “You’re not protecting blacks or Chinese or Irish if you make their plight un-discussable.  Anything that’s undiscussable you then leave to prejudice and opinion and ignorance.  They are the only gainers when you ban discussions of this sort.”

I feel my atavistic affection for the **old** Left stirring…
