Breathtaking stats from a recent NY Times piece by David Brooks:
Jews are a famously accomplished group. They make up 0.2 percent of the world population, but 54 percent of the world chess champions, 27 percent of the Nobel physics laureates and 31 percent of the medicine laureates.
Jews make up 2 percent of the U.S. population, but 21 percent of the Ivy League student bodies, 26 percent of the Kennedy Center honorees, 37 percent of the Academy Award-winning directors, 38 percent of those on a recent Business Week list of leading philanthropists, 51 percent of the Pulitzer Prize winners for nonfiction.
I have a simple pronouncement. If the Jews were indeed taking over the world, then that would be brilliant!
More smart people is a good thing, not a bad thing. That should be obvious.
