Stuyvesant High Versus China Rail
It is Time to Stop CelebratingInadequacy

史岱文森高中 VS 中国铁路
是时辰遏制为缺陷而狂欢了。



China has an upcoming maglev train that will run at373 miles an hour. By comparison, the United States increasingly looks like acountry from an earlier age. Pop Quiz: Was this train engineered (a) by heartwarming,puzzled, oppressed, suffering, agonized minorities who ought to be makingpizzas, or (b) by the brightest people China could find regardless sex, color,or “adversity quotient”? (If you choose (a) you are probably a Democrat.)

中国即将推出的磁悬浮列车,将以373英里的时速飞驰。对比之下,美国加倍像一个老年国家。问题问题来了:这列火车到底是由温情、思疑、受榨取、疾苦地建造PIZZA饼的少数族裔设计的,仍是由中国能找到的最聪明的人设计的呢?无论性别、无论肤色、高逆商(逆境商数,它是指人们面临逆境时的反映体例,即面临挫折、解脱困境和超越坚苦的能力)?

Diversity over Quality
Perhapsit is time to recognize the stupid as an ethnic group. They are the country’slargest voting bloc. They are hugely influential, having agendas, lobbies, anddemands. They work tirelessly to put the cognitively undetectable intopositions of power. Usually they succeed. They are the enemies of reason, thesciences, mathematics, schooling, high culture, thought, and recognizablegrammar.

多样性是否比质量来得主要?
或许是时辰将愚蠢之人算作是一个平易近族了。他们是这个国家最年夜的投票集体,他们影响力巨年夜,他们有议程、有游说集体、有强烈需求。他们孜孜不倦的工作着,将认知无法察觉的事物置于权力之中,凡是他们会成功,他们是理性、科学、数学、教育、文化素养、思惟以及正确语法的仇敌。

Forexample, New Yorkdebates eliminating the entrance test for the city’s elite high schools–e.g.,Bronx High School of Science, Stuyvesant, and Brooklyn Tech. Mayor De Blasio,presumably preferring reelection to sanity, backs the idea. He knows the stupidcan’t solve a quadratic, but they can pull a voting handle, at least with preparatorytraining.

例如,纽约正考虑打消该市顶尖高中的入学考试,好比布朗克斯科技高中、史岱文森高中以及布鲁克林手艺高中。而市长De Blasio竟然是撑持这一设法的,他可能更倾向于连任而不是连结理智健全。他也知道蠢材是不会解二次方程式的,可是在预先培训这些蠢货的情形下,他们至少可以拉到选票。

Theproblem, see, is that the test selects only the incandescently bright, which ofcourse is why it exists. This offends the stupid. Now it seems that the schoolsneed really dim students, specifically HPOCs–heartwarming people of color–whocan’t do the work. The idea is to make the schools Look Like America. Which itwould, Which should be avoided at all costs.

问题问题在于,这项测试只会遴选脑子灵光的人,这也是理所当然的。然而这项测试却冲犯了蠢材。此刻看来,黉舍需要的是庸才,出格是那些不能胜任的学业、却又“暖心”的有色人种。这种设法让黉舍也起头变得有点美国化了,我们应该不惜一切价钱来避免这种状况。

Somebodyshould tell New York that elite schools are not playpens for the synapticallychallenged–to put it plainly, the stupid. “Stupid” is what exists whenintellectual reach exceed intellectual grasp.

人们应该告诉纽约:精英黉舍并不是那些年夜脑不灵光之人的游乐场 -- 或者我说得更直白点吧,没错,说的就是那些愚蠢的学生,“愚蠢”是指智力已经不受智商掌控了。

DeBlasio wants entrance to depend more on factors such as “attendance, GPA,ethnicity, personal recommendation, and geographical locations,” none of whichhas much to do with academic capacity.

De Blasio市长但愿入学尺度更多的取决于“入学率、GPA成就、种族、小我举荐以及地舆位置”等身分,而这些身分都与学术水平毫无关系。

Actually,someone did try to inform the assembled pusillanimous asses. “But when a12-year-old, Asian-American middle school girl spoke in favor of retaining the test—asking “If Iwork hard, shouldn’t I have a higher advantage than those who are just beinglazy”—the senators were alert to potentially racially insensitive language.”

事实上,已经有人试图将这种设法奉告于那些三五成群怯懦鬼残余了。但当一个12岁的亚裔美国女孩讲话赞成保留入学测试、并问到:“假如我全力进修,我不应该比那些懒人有良多的优势么?”时,那些参议院却说女孩的讲话涉及种族敏感,理当连结警戒?



Thevideo is worth watching.

以上的视频值得一看



TheAsian child of course has an excellent point. Since she was chosen to speak tothe assembled lickspittles, she presumably is radiantly bright and hopes tomake the cut. Why indeed should she, smart, studious, potentially useful tosociety, be booted in favor of HPOC with his pants dragging around his ankles,just above his IQ? Why deliberately excludethe superior student, because sheis superior?

这个亚洲女孩的不雅概念真的很棒,她被遴选上台讲话,她所面临的是一群低三下四的献媚者,她概略光华精明,并但愿自己能成功吧。她真的很聪明、勤恳勤学、对社会有暗藏的辅佐,为什么她要去撑持那群裤子拖到脚踝上、智商还没有脚踝高的差生?为什么要居心排斥优等生,莫非仅仅因为她更优异么?

Ifthe new admission standards favored by official cretins are accepted, says astudy, the Asian percentage will fall from 61% to 31% and the black andHispanic rise to 46%, which would destroy the schools–the intention, I suspect.There exists not the slightest chance of finding so many qualified minorities.If they existed, it would not be necessary to lower standards to recruit them.

一项研究剖明,假如新的及第尺度被正式启用,亚裔学子的及第率将从61%骤降到31%,黑人和西班牙裔的及第率将上升到46%,而这将毁了这些顶级黉舍。我真是思疑他们是何种意图。因为要找到及格的少数族裔学生几乎没有任何可能性,假如存在可能性的话,也没有需要降低及第尺度了是吧?



Anybodywith the brains of a goddam learning-disabled turnip knows what will happen.The HPOCs will fall to the bottom like anvils. One imagines this:

就算是一个存在进修障碍的榆木脑壳也知道会发生什么吧,这些庸才会想铁球一样跌入地底,我们可以想象一下:

Teacher:“Chin Ping, given a composite function f(g(x)), the first derivative d/dxf(g(x)) is f'(g(x))⋅g'(x).”

(精英高中的)教员:“Chin Ping我问你,已知复合函数f(g(x)),一阶导数d/dx f(g(x))是f'(g(x))⋅g'(x).”

Then:“Deewan, if Daddy Beaver has three sticks, and Momma Beaver has one stick, andLittle Bitty Baby Beaver has two sticks, how many sticks….?”

(二笔高中的)教员:“Deewan你站起来,我问你,假如海狸爸爸有3根棍子,海狸妈妈又1根棍子,小海狸宝宝Beaver有两根棍子,总共有若干好多根棍子…”

Yes,this is cruel and exaggerated. It is also assured. The Affirmative ActionEffect effect has been many times demonstrated. It is demonstrated every day inwhat were once universities.

是的,这种对比太残忍也太夸张了。但却是必将发生的事。“必定性步履”(必定性步履(Affirmative action)是20世纪60年月由美国联邦政府奉行的,旨在消弭与解救曩昔在就业、教育等规模对少数族裔及妇女等群体歧视的一系列政策与步履)效应已被多次证实、天天都在曾经能称得上年夜学的处所呈现着。



Thereis much to be said for knowing one’s place, one’s limitations. For example, Iam smart enough to be a mid-rank journalist specializing in sedition, slander,and distortion. I am not smart enough for a doctoral program in astrophysics atMIT. This was doubtless an oversight by God, but there it is. I accept it, so Idon’t try to push my way into MIT by political pressure. Consequently I do nothave to sit in a classroom of the mathematically brilliant and feel like aidiot. I can do that in the privacy of my living room.

人贵有自知之明,要知道自己的位置和局限性。好比,我可能是足够聪明能成为一名中层记者,专门煽惑、诬蔑和歪曲,可是要进入麻省理工攻读天体物理学博士学位,我的聪明劲就不够了。这可能是天主有所疏忽,但这种情形简直存在啊,所以我只能接管这个,所以我不想因为政治压力而强行进入麻省理工学院。是以,我不用坐在一个布满数学天才的教室里、感受自己像个痴人。

Thesin of stupidity does not lie in low ability, for which no one is responsible,but in trying to hamstring the able and outlaw superiority. Which, as acountry, we are busily doing.

愚蠢的罪过不是在于能力低下,对于能力低下这件事,没人需要为此负责。
而是在于故障他人的能力,褫夺他人的优胜性。而作为一个国家,美国正在忙于干这种事。

NewsFlash: Harvard biology students say that the phrase “whitecorpuscles” is racist, and demand that it be changed to “indigenous peoplescorpuscles.” The head of the Ethnic Studies department said he welcomed themove, and would appoint a committee of students to find out how to spell it.

新闻快讯:哈佛生物系的学生暗示,“白血球”这个词有种族主义之嫌,并要求将其改为“土著人血球”。种族研究系负责人则暗示,他们接待这一行为,并将录用一个由学生组成的委员会来研究若何拼写这个词。
