I just saw Steve Hsu’s latest blog post, on the revelations of penalization of Asian-Americans on subjective personality evaluation by Harvard admissions. Looking through the comments, the most memorable one was this:
In world war two, Jewish death was 6 millions; Soviet death was 26 millions.
But Jewish death seems to be major impression in people’s mind today. Russian? Who cares.
Simple, Jewish social skill and Russian social skill are at different levels. Social skill is most important factor in subjective/emotional control.
If you don’t believe me, here’s the link.
Of course, it’s not just that. There’s also that the Anglo world was and is so much stronger culturally. To the extent that this is quantifiable, based on media representation statistics, I would say at least an order of magnitude. And ever since the USSR fell, the Anglo media has basically been able to gloss over the critical if not decisive role of the Soviet side in WWII with impunity.
