We know from Spengler that each great civilization goes through a cycle: hard times create strong men, strong men create good times, good times create weak men. On the Dissident Right, our belief is in personal responsibility, in taking ownership for who and what we are. If we accept this intellectually, it gives us a blind spot with regard to biology and just how immutable heritability is, however. Blood trumps culture and policy, even naked power. Heritability is the ultimate red-pill, and in some ways the ultimate black-pill (and then a white-pill).
