    Nick Land is a pretty interesting far right figure. He has also written some weird fiction btw. I do consider a lot of upper-class Anglos to be very intelligent and classy, more than most races on average.
    I agree. So it seems like you are going for speciation by a combination of both geography and SES class.

    We probably wont see any races based on class as long as rich males take women from lower classes due to their physicial appearance. It almost would be necessary to avoid inbreeding. Just check out old pictures of European royalties.

    The upper class of the white race is made of millions, and I don't think inbreeding will be a problem, but one way or the other they will, and they do, pick off the beautiful lower class women.

    This same thread was closed in the "Anthrogenica" forum for "pseudoscientific content"! I take it that option #1 is not allowed. The state of mainstream anthropology is like a church, only with a stronger hatred of heresy.

    Rule 3.14 of the Anthrogenica forum: "Pseudoscientific material that is presented as scientific will be deleted immediately and without notice by the administration. Furthermore, it is the poster's duty to preemptively determine whether their imminent posts contain masked pseudoscience."

    I put my objection in this thread:

    https://anthrogenica.com/showthread....899#post399899

    This thread was closed due to "pseudoscientific content":

    https://anthrogenica.com/showthread....y-species-next

    I think pseudoscience should be allowed to talk about. I expect the words, "caucasoid, mongoloid and negroid," raised the objection, but that isn't even pseudoscience. They are racial classifications used by modern professional forensic anthropologists and orthopedic/orthodontic anthropologists (i.e. see https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5278581/), and for good reason: the differences are observable, replicable, and grounded in evolutionary biology (genotypic differences among races are largely a function of the ancestral geographic differences, following from genetic drift). Whenever the word, "pseudoscience," is used, it is usually taken to mean ideas that are wrong, but in fact they are merely ideas that are morally uncomfortable. For example, the theory of luminiferous ether was wrong, but it was never called "pseudoscience." Ideas we just don't like are called "pseudoscience." Should we guide our scientific thinking according to our morals? Our wishes? Our politics? Of course not. Objective reality doesn't care one way or the other for our feelings or our ideology or anything like that. Should we prohibit all improbable ideas from consideration? That would cripple scientific progress: it always starts with improbable hypotheses.

    I was banned from Anthrogenica. They represent the whole culture of Western anthropology, which I take to be the greatest scandal of Western academia.

    I voted for speciation by outer space divisions.

    If humans are close to each other, they will keep mixing with each other and speciation won't happen.
    Interesting topic
