In a desperate attempt to appease minorities of all shades bent on starting a race war, Politiclowns are frantically peddling the virtues of diversity. They postulate that diversity is our strength without ever specifying why it is a strength. It seems to have no benefit to modern western society beyond street gangs, rape and genital mutilation. While the desirability of these advances is beyond dispute, it nonetheless seems to me that diversity has minor drawbacks worthy of consideration.
If we closely examine some of the resplendent marvels of diversity and the onward march of human betterment and happiness attendant thereunto we could conclude that relations, say between, Tamils and Sinhalese in Sri Lanka, Hutus and Tutsis in Rwanda, Hindus and Moslems in India, Blacks and Whites in South Africa, Turks and Armenians and Kurds in Turkey, Sunnis and Shias throughout the Arabic countries and of course Europeans and Moslems, would be neighbourly, polite and respectful. Instead they have only produced bloodbaths.
From this shining example one might rightly conclude that diversity is the principal cause of human misery. In Europe and America, increasing cross-colour-religion attacks (generally reported under the heading “Terrorism”) are becoming the norm. Politiclowns point fingers in every direction except the direction of their failed quest for “diversity”.
The wholesale importation of Moslems from so called war zones is reaching the point at which they have become the grave and irremediable problem that they are everywhere else.
Lay the blame where you will: on racists of every creed, on God or genes or sunspots, but take a moment to reflect on how much of the trouble reported daily in the news arises from “diversity”. For example, achievement gaps, suspension rates in schools, rapes, honour killings, shootings by police, shootings of blacks by blacks, complaints of discrimination, interracial gang-beatings, affirmative action, mass demonstrations, actual terrorism, shootings of policemen, demands for censoring of books and the removal of statues. Diversity is by a wide margin the worst nightmare facing Western civilization.
All of which would suggest even to the most sceptical that diversity is a terrible idea. Mix different kinds of people and you get trouble. Even Politiclowns, afflicted by the twin scourges of liberalism and conservatism despise each other and do not willingly associate. Feminists and men, city slickers and rednecks, dogs and cats—all hate each other. So what should the response be?
Isn’t it obvious? We should import more weird, backward, dull-witted, useless, and inassimilable civilizational disasters, many of which have produced nothing more technologically challenging than the pointed stick. What could be a better idea? And once we’ve got them, there’s no getting rid of them.
It is considered good manners to regard all cultures as equally meritorious, but let us take off our rose tinted glasses and see this idea for what it really is—political idiocy.
Suppose that Emile, David, Karl or Antonio in some small town in Europe mutilated his daughter’s genitals, refused to let them go to school, forced them to wear funny black bags, didn’t let them go out alone, made them marry smelly elderly Pakistanis against their will, or killed them if they weren’t virgins, would he be considered a good father and upstanding member of the community? No, but that is exactly what we are importing – honourable, decent people who just happen to have a different culture to our own.
Just pointing out that this absurdity, this thirteenth-century nightmarish sub-humanism is just not dandy, makes one an Islamophobe.
And even the do-gooders, leftist altruists and the Politico-sentimentalists who make it their life’s work to apologise for Islam’s bad behaviour are considered by the desert dwellers as infidels to be killed on sight.
But it is all just fairy tales. The foundation of Western political thinking, if such a thing exists, is that we should all love one another and just get along despite our cultural differences – in the name of diversity.
It might be a good idea for us to use such minor rational capacity as we have to avoid doing stupid things that will have a heavy price. The world is what it is, not what we want it to be. Mixing even civilized peoples is not a good idea. Put thirty million Japanese in Italy, or Greeks in Japan, and trouble will result. This, even though the Japanese are an advanced and well-behaved people, and Italians and Greeks are reasonably close. But Somalis, for God’s sake? Syrians?
The human animal is hard-wired to be hostile to other groups, to strangers, to intruders. It is the dog-pack instinct. This limbic paranoia manifests itself all through life. I call it “territorial fury”.
When people have no cause for conflict, they invent it.
Diversity? Spare me.
