  1. Even granting a large genetic component to IQ, there are a myriad of other factors that affect behavior and productivity. The racialist argument actually presumes a high *average* IQ, since this allows greater overall efficacy and a better ability to understand and interact with the higher echelons of intelligence. When you’re dealing with high individual IQs the typical result seems to be an inability to communicate with normal people and social alienation.
    If the racialists were consistent (and realistic) they would advocate the deportation of whites below 100IQ, or perhaps 120IQ, since only at these levels is real cooperation between the right-side of the bell curve and the center possible. Otherwise you will just have a bunch of high IQ drug addicts and predators who have little in common with the population.
    Further complicating the issue is that the state is systemically inefficient and self-rationalizing, so that no plan – however well conceived and supported by science – could possibly survive contact with the regulatory agency charged with carrying out.
    There is a further issue that high-IQ people are the least likely to breed, partly because of socialization issues (and women are far less represented at the right-side of the bell curve, making an appropriate mate-matching a statistical impossibility) and because raising children is actually a pain in the ass that most people only get into by being too stupid to use a condom.
