Reality Bites: Why Some Cultures Are Better Than Others

“You cannot rebuild your civilization with somebody else’s babies.”-United States Congressman Steve King of Iowa

There is perhaps no more important issue facing us today than wholesale demographic upheaval. The lethal threats to our way of life—dispossession, dissolution, Islamization, “Harrison Bergeron” egalitarianism—are reliant on and enabled by the damaging Leftist policies that weaken the military and security apparatus of the state, fund boundless entitlements and racial and gender preference quotas, and import huge numbers of unassimilable immigrants; these policies, plus the seemingly omnipresent Cult-Marx propaganda machine, contribute to an increasingly volatile discourse, turn the inner cities into a wasteland, poison the culture, and force big government and burdensome taxes on the hard-working, contributing members of society. Globalism and multi-culturalism are transforming the West beyond all recognition, and mass, undifferentiated immigration forms the tip of that spear. Islam, the equity racket, and other “interest groups” simply capitalize on the upheaval. Most of the problems the West faces radiate from the same rotten center of anti-Western policies and a culture that denigrates and seeks to undermine the very foundations on which it was built.

As the delightful Frogwave quipped on Twitter, “Westerners have a vague notion that nationalism is bad because they’ve been made to associate it with ‘hate’ and bigotry. It’s a false dichotomy where if you don’t want to import Africa it can only be because you are a hater.” And why wouldn’t you want to import Africa? It’s not like these Engineers of Tomorrow represent one hundred percent of the top ten least educated countries in the world (shown with literacy rate percentage):

  1. Burkina Faso 21.8%
  2. South Sudan 24.4%
  3. Chad 25.7%
  4. Niger 28.7%
  5. Guinea 29.5%
  6. Benin 34.7%
  7. Sierra Leone 34.8%
  8. Ethiopia 35.9%
  9. Mozambique 38.7%
  10. Senegal 39.3%

It’s not like the ten poorest countries in the world (with accompanying GDP per capita in US dollars) are all in Africa:

  1. Malawi 253.0
  2. Burundi 295.1
  3. Central African Republic 378.6
  4. The Gambia 422.8
  5. Niger 440.7
  6. Madagascar 449.4
  7. Liberia 461.0
  8. Congo, Dem. Rep. 475.2
  9. Guinea 550.0
  10. Ethiopia 567.8

It’s not like, according to the International Center for Research of Women:

One third of girls in the developing world are married before the age of 18 and 1 in 9 are married before the age of 15…While countries with the highest prevalence of child marriage are concentrated in Western and Sub-Saharan Africa, due to population size, the largest number of child brides reside in South Asia…Child brides often show signs symptomatic of sexual abuse and post-traumatic stress such as feelings of hopelessness, helplessness and severe depression.[1]

It’s not like, according to the World Economic Forum, ranked by the metrics of economic, social, and political freedom, legal protections, and safety and security, it’s all African and Middle Eastern nations that are the worst countries in the world for women:

  1. Afghanistan
  2. Syria
  3. Yemen
  4. Pakistan
  5. The Central African Republic
  6. The Democratic Republic of the Congo
  7. Iraq
  8. Mali
  9. Sudan
  10. Niger
  11. Lebanon
  12. Cameroon
  13. Chad

It’s not like the top twenty nations on the Fragile State Index (meaning least stable), in order, are as follows: South Sudan, Somalia, the Central African Republic, Yemen, Sudan, Syria, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Chad, Afghanistan, Iraq, Haiti, Guinea, Nigeria, Zimbabwe, Ethiopia, Guinea-Bissau, Burundi, Pakistan, Eritrea, and Niger.

It’s not like the countries with the top violent death rates per 100,000 people are entirely the province of the Third World:

It’s not like the countries with the lowest life expectancy are Swaziland, Angola, Zambia, Lesotho, and Mozambique.

I cannot fathom how people are unable to put two and two together; how do you think these horrific conditions come to be? They just fall out of the sky like manna from heaven? The countries with the highest rates of violence, sexual abuse, dysfunction, corruption, and lowest levels of sanitation and infrastructure all happen to be most concentrated among non-white and non-Northeast Asian societies. The most violent white nation on that list is Russia at number fifty-six, and this is due primarily to their Moslem Caucasus region.

Many natural resource-rich countries like South Africa, Venezuela, Nigeria, Brazil, and Iraq are also profoundly dysfunctional, yet many countries with borderline-non-existent natural resources like Japan, South Korea, Italy, Iceland, Singapore, Luxembourg, Switzerland, and Taiwan have all been able to construct very robust economies and high standards of living. Why is that? Could it have anything to do with…the people themselves?

Just for reference, here are the average IQs of the countries I’ve just listed:

Singapore: 108

South Korea: 106

Japan: 105

Taiwan: 104

Italy: 102

Iceland: 101

Switzerland: 101

Luxembourg: 100

Iraq: 87
Brazil: 87
Venezuela: 84
Nigeria: 84
South Africa: 77

A stable population that remains predominantly Icelandic, or Japanese, or Italian is all but statistically guaranteed to be low on all of the indicators that comprise the Fragile State Index, which ranks countries from least to most stable. Of the bottom twenty nations on the Fragile State Index (meaning the most stable), nineteen are European or were settled by and maintain a large majority of people of European ancestry. The other, Singapore, the former British colony, is positively thriving. Japan and South Korea are also very low on the FSI, with scores comparable to Spain.

For comparison, according to the World Economic Forum, ranked by the metrics of economic, social, and political freedom, legal protections, and safety and security, these are the best countries in the world for women:

  1. Iceland
  2. Norway
  3. Switzerland
  4. Slovenia
  5. Spain
  6. Finland
  7. Canada
  8. The Netherlands
  9. Sweden
  10. Belgium
  11. Singapore
  12. Denmark
  13. Germany
  14. The United Kingdom

This list is with the civilizational deficits created by migrants waging war on the Western world from the inside. As one example, before large-scale Moslem immigration and creeping Islamization helped foster the conditions that resulted first in Pim Fortuyn being shot in the head in 2002 by an animal rights activist who perceived Fortuyn as a “threat to minority rights,” and then in Theo Van Gogh’s butchery in the streets in 2004 by a Moroccan Moslem, the Netherlands hadn’t seen this kind of gruesome violence since the de Witt brothers were cannibalized in 1672. The Pilgrims who came to America famously left the Netherlands because it was too tolerant. I guess our “betters” have decided to rectify this tolerance disparity by re-building Western civilization’s genome.
