Can I get a synopsis?
Skimmed through this for a few seconds. Is there anything more to it than "more geniuses were men, so support men in science more than women"? With literal comments like "leave university to men", this seems even more vapid and dumb than the typical redpill videos by the likes of Sargon.
He basically brings up that males and females have undeniable differences/advantages in certain fields, and brings up a bell curve where women have a tendency to have a higher amount of average intelligence whereas males have less average intelligence a high amount of both low and very high intelligence. He then claims that most of the brilliant minds of the past were male because of this curve and that universities should foster males because they have a bigger chance of bringing about greater minds like the ones in the past. The problem society is facing today he says, is that with new innovations and creations, it creates new industries which employs people and as efficiency improves, employment is scaled back. So we have reached a point where innovation is being scaled down, and as a result, we'll eventually scale back employment and the economy as a whole because our ability to invent new fields and industry has slowed, and he claims this is a result of pushing for more females at higher levels of education. He certainly words it better than I do. Quote from: Alternative Facts on April 19, 2017, 06:48:10 PMCan I get a synopsis?
So, we're not innovating enough because of women?
There are more women attending college in Iran than men. Surely you're not going to tell me Iran has a "feminism problem"?

See now, what this really is is just misogyny camouflaged as utilitarianism. It's an old Nazi trick, really. Convince the drones that undesirables need to be removed from positions of influence for the good of society and next thing you know you can round up slavs by tens of thousands for slave labor with nobody batting an eye. It starts with taking women out of universities, then you take them back out of the workplace to reverse the damage to the housing market that the dual income family standard did, then you remove them from life.
Quote from: Flee on April 19, 2017, 06:52:16 PMTo everyone asking about his sources, it's as Flee has said, the guy in the video is straight up pulling shit out of his ass. My reasoning for bringing this video up isn't because I think there's a gender war that's blocking males from entering universities, but that there may be hindrances that could block anyone from going to college. I say maybe because I really don't want to look up statistics and sources. There's some things in the video that echoed though me, it's more on me as an individual rather than me and males as a whole. What I'll give is entirely anecdotal, I wont try to tout it as fact, merely a recount as to what happened to me and a possibility that there might be others like me out there that could face the same dilemma. I don't have a college degree, nor do my two older brothers. My younger sister might be the only one out of the four of us that'll ever have one. I went to college part-time for two years before I left out of frustration. I left for a multitude of reasons. One reason was I had no sense of direction, I was only doing Gen-Ed classes and had no major declared, something like what field you're going into is something most people have figured out before starting college and even if they change in the middle of their studies, they'd probably know exactly what they want to go into. I know now I would want to go into some form of film production. Frankly though, I have little interest in picking up where I left off two years ago. Another reason was the constant push for STEM, throughout all of high school I was bombarded with adults telling me I HAD to go to college, and I HAD to major in some form of STEM. It was really pressuring and I ended up just walking away from it, there was no fostering of any other possible field of study; just straight up push for engineering, medical, or hard science. Which is incredibly ironic that I get to college and almost all my gen-eds were completely Humanities. After spending four years being told in high school that I'm getting all my foundation learning and college is where you'll get into your specialized field, I felt lied and betrayed to find more foundation learning. Possibly the one thing I agree with the video I posted is a push for humanities, I absolutely hated it. It's also the constant push to go to college that pushes me away from it. Having family, and fellow coworkers just constantly talk about how I NEED to go back and finish school really angers me. I want to see how far I can make it without a degree and if I ever reach management within Disney, I just want to tell all my family off about how they were wrong. I feel as though society around me is built off the expectation of me going to college, and because I never finished I'm a failure; I don't want that pressure, if I return from my indefinite hiatus it's because I chose to do it, not because others expected me to. If the guy in the video believes that less males are entering universities, I believe he should look up all types of reasoning, he only needs to look at me to see it has nothing to do with females and more to do with pressure. And you can look at Japan as an example of a country that pressures youth into higher education too much and why it's a problem.

Quote from: Töqi on April 20, 2017, 04:37:49 AMHow does he quantify and measure innovation?Only source I see in the description is this, which just seems to state that innovation is slowing because the real GDP of developed nations is increasing at lower rates.http://www.softmachines.org/wordpress/?p=1502
How does he quantify and measure innovation?
So, I'm not watching the video because eugh, but it seems like kind of a shit argument?
