Charles, there is no logical or moral argument against segregation, but every logical and moral argument against FORCED segregation. People tend to congregate with those most like themselves in some way. Forced segregation or forced integration is not only tyranny, but also artificially groups or separates people together according to the tyrant's whim. Sowell has pointed out that in the past, responsible black families moved out of the ghettos once they could afford better housing, only to battle Proglodytes who wanted the irresponsible black families to move into the same neighborhood with them. They segregated by behavior, a wise thing.

Anyone who has followed the decades-long controversies over the role of genes in IQ scores will recognize the names of the two leading advocates of opposite conclusions on that subject-- Professor Arthur R. Jensen of the University of California at Berkeley and Professor James R. Flynn, an American expatriate at the University of Otago in New Zealand.

What is so unusual in the academic world of today is that Professor Flynn's latest book, "Are We Getting Smarter?" is dedicated to Arthur Jensen, whose integrity he praises, even as he opposes his conclusions. That is what scholarship and science are...
