We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I listened to Razib interview Murray recently, and Charles has been on with Glenn Loury as well. I interpret this book as a last ditch effort to get people to see the obvious, however unpleasant. He has spent his career on getting folks to understand far more complicated material that flows from this, which is impeded by their unwillingness to get the basics.
As I am closer to Murray's age than Khan's I was surprised a bit by Razib's impression that the 20th C ideal is vanishing and not likely to return. As he is one who would be more sympathetic to it than most of his generation - perhaps all of it other than observant religious folk - I was saddened to hear that. We may be dinosaurs after all.

There are no viable solutions. You can't fix stupid. Sorry. Sad but true.
