The Head Girl Syndrome By Brian Simpson
This is interesting, the “head girl syndrome,” where the system wants the sorts of people that American Renaissance celebrates, high IQ performers. But not genuine genius, which is more unstable and unpredictable, but yields, often, the material which changes the world:
“The ideal Head Girl is an all-rounder: performs extremely well in all school subjects and has a very high Grade Point Average. She is excellent at sports, Captaining all the major teams. She is also pretty, popular, sociable and well-behaved. The Head Girl will probably be a big success in life, in whatever terms being a big success happens to be framed (she will gravitate towards such aspects of life) – so she might in some times and places make a Good Marriage and do a great job of raising a family; in another time and place she might go to a top-notch college and get a top-notch job – and pursue a glamorous and infertile lifestyle of ‘serial monogamy’; with desirable mates. But the Head Girl is not, cannot be, a creative genius. Modern society is run by Head Girls, of both sexes, hence there is no place for the creative genius. Modern Colleges aim at recruiting Head Girls, so do universities, so does science, so do the arts, so does the mass media, so does the legal profession, so does medicine, so does the military… And in doing so, they filter-out and exclude creative genius. The genius is pretty much everything the Head Girl is not. He is lop-sided in his abilities – truly excellent at some things or maybe just one thing, he is either hopeless or bored by many others. He won’t work hard for long periods at things he does not want to do. He will not gravitate to the prestige areas of life, or cannot or will not do the networking necessary to get-on. The Head Girl can never be a creative genius because she does what other people want by the standards they most value. She will worker harder and at a higher standard in doing whatever it is that social pressure tells her to do – and she will do this by whatever social standards prevail, only more thoroughly. Meanwhile the creative genius will do what he does because he must. The Head Girl will not ever want to alienate potentially powerful allies. Meanwhile the creative genius is indifferent or hostile to the opinions of others so long as he knows he is right.”
Everything about the modern system works to destroy that creative essence, characteristic of the Nordic race, which builds civilisations. And that is too bad, and I hope the levellers enjoy the barbarian world that they are creating.
