Archive of High-IQ-Society Politics


This archive is intended to serve as a rallying point for those who object to authoritarian control in the high-IQ societies. If exceptionally intelligent people can't throw off the yoke of tyranny the world at large has little realistic hope of doing so.

I have many documents in my possession which will be listed here as I am able to catalog them. Not every document is available on the Web; some need typing or formatting, some are neither official records published in the societies' journals nor items for which permission to publish has been granted by the author. However, while I may not publish some of what is included in this archive, it is available for use in a good cause. In particular, there have been many disputes recently involving events years in the past. I am creating a systematic record as a precaution, anticipating that it will probably continue to be necessary to set the record straight from time to time.

For the philosophy of organizational affairs on which my positions on the matters reported on here has been based, see my Intellectual Freedom Manifesto.

If you have documents related to the abuse of power by the officers of any high-IQ society or any kind of communications circulated secretly among officers I would be happy to include them here.

I hope that the existence of this archive will curb some of the worst excesses of those wielding power in the societies. But if it doesn't they'll read about themselves here.
