I believe that we're at the point of diminishing returns of the modern intellectual paradigm, and that so-called "post"-modernism is an emperor's-new-clothes intellectual movement that merely highlights the skeptical baggage that empiricism conteined from the start (Descartes' subjectivism, Locke's moderate skepticism on which he based his argument for toleration, Hume's more radical skepticism). Empiricism is an intellectual power tool, and does not yield "neutral" descriptions of reality, but means to ends. It's time for a broader perspective that subsumes empiricism, one that's persuasive enough to motivate an abandonment of modern, collectivizing trends. The rest is too complicated for this forum.

Now that census data show -- for the first time in American history -- the number of white babies born exceeded by the number of babies born to non-white minorities the question is: What does this mean for the future of American society?

Politically, it means that minorities who traditionally vote overwhelmingly for Democrats can ensure that the country veers ever further to the left over the years, making America more like the welfare states of Europe, whose unsustainable spending led ultimately to financial crises and widespread riots.

But this is not strictly a matter of whites versus non-whites....
