Open Borders

According to a report published by "The Economist", "Both Mrs May and Mr Corbyn would each in their own way step back from [...] open borders [...]."

"Open borders" is tantamount to national suicide. Some ethnic or racial groups lack either the intellect or the will to assimilate into Western society. Via "open borders", members of such groups enter the West. Their presence ruins the quality of life.

Here are 2 examples.

On April 22, a group of approximately 50 African and Hispanic youths seized a light-rail train in Oakland (United States), assaulted the passengers, and stole their money and other possessions, according to an essay published by the "Santa Monica Observer".

On June 3, a group of 2 Moroccans and 1 Pakistani drove their van into a group of pedestrians in London (Great Britain). The thugs left the van and used knives to stab customers in nearby bars and restaurants. An eyewitness stated, "a woman probably in her early 20s staggered into the pub and she was bleeding heavily from the neck and from her mouth. It appeared to myself and my friends that her throat had been cut.", according to a report published by "The Washington Post". Detailed information about the background of the 3 thugs is available in a report published by "The Telegraph".

We should immediately close the borders of all Western countries and restrict entry to only immigrants who will assimilate into Western society.

Criminality of Immigrants

According to a report by "The Hill", "immigrants commit crimes and are incarcerated at a much lower rate than U.S. citizens, according to two separate studies released this week."

That statement is misleading due to an abuse of statistics. Any sociological assertion must present results by ethnicity and race because differences in culture and genetics produce starkly different behaviors.

The report mentions 2 studies. The first study was done by The Sentencing Project. This study should be ignored because it avoids presenting the results by ethnicity and race.

The second study was done by the Cato Institute. This study presents results by ethnicity and race and is worthy of our consideration.

The Cato Institute shows that immigrants are incarcerated at a lower rate than natives for each ethnicity or race. This study also shows that Africans and Hispanics of the 2nd and later generations are incarcerated at a much higher rate than (1) Africans and Hispanics of the 1st generation (i.e., the immigrant generation) and (2) Asians and Europeans of all generations.

Africans and Hispanics who are immigrants fear being deported back to the inferior countries created by their native cultures. So, these people behave properly upon entry into the United States. The 2nd generation of Africans and Hispanics are safe from deportation, so they behave improperly and become criminals.

Both Africans and Hispanics are less likely to assimilate than Europeans and Asians. Uncontrolled immigration from Central and South America threatens the United States.

Marine Le Pen and Multicultural Pluralism

According to a report by "The Economist", "local opponents accuse [the mayor of Cogolin] of financing his development plans in 'opaque' ways and an 'ideological' hostility to cultural diversity, such as North African songs or dances in schools."

Whenever a reporter writes words like "African", "Hispanic", or "Middle Easterner", he usually also writes a defense of or praise for "cultural diversity" or "multicultural pluralism". This phenomenon appears on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean.

We must be honest with ourselves. Western culture and Western civilization are superior to all other cultures and civilizations. The proof of this fact appears in Japan. Its people embraced Westernization and transformed their island into one of the richest nations in the world.

By contrast, the peoples in African nations, Middle-Eastern nations, and Hispanic nations (in Central and South America) reject Westernization, and those nations are economically poor, have high rates of violent crime, or have authoritarian societies. That is the ugly truth of non-Western civilizations. [1]

Marine Le Pen, like Donald Trump, repeatedly asserts that Western values are superior to African, Middle-Eastern, or Hispanic values. She is asserting the truth.

She deserves the utmost praise for speaking truth to elitist power.

note
Africans and Hispanics in the United States reject assimilation and demand special privileges that are denied to Americans of Asian or European ancestry. According to a report by the "Los Angeles Times", Africans (and, to a lesser degree, Hispanics) are over-represented among students who use willful defiance to disrupt the meeting of a class. Under political pressure from African and Hispanic organizations, the school boards in the Los Angeles Unified School District and other districts have terminated the use of suspension (or any other punishment) for forcing the disrupters to behave properly.

According to a report by the "New York Times", Africans and Hispanics are over-represented among students who fail a literacy test for employment as a teacher in elementary and secondary schools. Under pressure from African and Hispanic organizations, the Board of Regents of New York terminated the use of the literacy test.

Rate of Crime Committed by Immigrants

According to a recent report by "The Economist", "... first-generation migrants commit crimes at lower rates than natives."

Any statement about sociological phenomenon must be qualified by ethnicity and race, for differences in culture and genetics produce stark differences in behavior among ethnic and racial groups. If the author of a demographic statement omits such qualifying information, then he is deliberately trying to hide ugly facts about a particular ethnicity or race.

Contrast the demographic statement by "The Economist" with the statements by David Frum, the senior editor at "The Atlantic". In an essay, he wrote, "Refugees from the communist crackdown in Hungary in 1956 have flourished in America. More than a quarter century after they began to arrive in America, Somali refugees have not. First-generation Japanese immigrants committed crimes at rates much lower than that of other Americans; Mexican immigrants have historically offended at elevated rates."

His comments about a sociological phenomenon are clear and cogent because he qualifies them by ethnicity and race. Specifically, both Africans and Hispanics are less likely to assimilate than Europeans and Asians. Uncontrolled immigration from Central and South America threatens the United States.

This observation is buttressed by a sociological study that estimates the rate of arrest for murder and that uses data provided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Pew Research Center for 2013. This study examines the rate (of arrest) by ethnicity and race. This rate is approximately proportional to the number of people murdered (per year) by each ethnicity and race and can be viewed as a proxy for the latter rate.

The arrest rate for Asians is about half of the rate for non-Hispanic Europeans.

By contrast, the arrest rate for Hispanics is about 3 times the rate for non-Hispanic Europeans. The arrest rate for Africans is about 9 times the rate for non-Hispanic Europeans.

The above facts lead to an inevitable conclusion: Donald Trump is right -- again. We must promptly deport illegal aliens (of whom most are Hispanic) and restrict legal immigration. We must favor immigrants who "support this country and love its people and its values."

Politicization of Science

According to a report by "The Economist", many scientists allege that President Donald Trump has politicized science. On February 19, hundreds of scientists assembled at Copley Square in Boston and vociferously accused him of hindering their work.

If these scientists look in a mirror, then they will see a hypocrite. Many scientists also politicize science.

Consider the case of Dr. James D. Watson, who won the Nobel Prize in medicine. In 2007, he asserted that Africans are less intelligent than Europeans due to genetic differences. Afterwards, he was forced to resign from Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, according to report 1 and report 2 by the "New York Times".

If scientists were not political, then they would have immediately conducted a study of the assertion that Watson made. The results of the study would speak for themselves.

Instead of taking a rational approach toward addressing a scientific topic (i.e., differences in intelligence due to differences in genetics), many scientists -- including the management of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory -- immediately and emotionally condemned Watson. They humiliated a man whose medical achievements would significantly advance the treatment of diseases.

The hard truth which many scientists try to avoid or hide (via political tactics like feigned anger) is that differences in culture and genetics produce differences in behavior among ethnic and racial groups. According to one report by "The Economist", differences in genetics produce differences in intelligence. According to another report by the same journal, differences in culture produce differences in work ethic.

Of course, differences in culture and genetics have produced stark differences in national development. For example, Japan is a prosperous nation with a low rate of violent crime. By contrast, Guatemala (which is a typical Hispanic nation) is economically poor and has a high rate of violent crime.

Impact of the Travel Ban on the United States

Recently, President Donald Trump signed several executive orders that restrict travel from some anti-Western nations like Iran. The writer of an essay published by "The Economist" alleges that this travel ban has reduced travel to the United States from countries that were not targeted by the ban. The writer does qualify his allegations and states, "It is hard to separate the ban completely from other factors currently affecting travel to America. The dollar has strengthened against currencies such as the euro and the yuan since the election, making it more expensive to visit the United States."

How can we be sure that the travel ban will only minimally and temporarily reduce travel to the United States?

First, the strengthening of the dollar is a vote of confidence in the executive orders signed by Trump. Foreigners buy dollars (thus boosting its value) because they believe that his political policies will improve the quality of life in our nation. An improved quality of life surely attracts more travel to the United States.

Second, from 1945 to the present day, the government of Japan has aggressively enforced strict immigration laws, including prompt deportation of illegal aliens. The Japanese laws are stricter than even the immigration policies proposed or implemented (via executive orders) by Trump.

Yet, millions of tourists still flock to Japan. They particularly enjoy the relatively crime-free environment there. If you lose your wallet, then some anonymous Japanese citizen will find it and give it to the police. A policeman will locate you and return the wallet to you. It will contain all the money that was originally in it.

If Trump succeeds at using his immigration policies to increase the percentage of pro-Western citizens to nearly 100% of the American population, then the United States will become the pleasant sort of place that exists in Japan and Germany (before it was inundated by anti-Western immigrants). The number of tourists to the United States will actually increase.

Trump's executive orders (which reduce the number of anti-Western immigrants) are the right start.

Ethnic and Racial Rates of Arrest for Murder

According to a report by "Time", Africans in New York City erupted into an orgy of violence on a hot day in the summer of 1977. For the 40th anniversary of this event, we examine the ethnic and racial rates of arrest for murder.

According to data provided by the Pew Research Center, the population of the United States of America (USA) in 2013 has the following demographic distribution, in which Hispanics are grouped into a separate category.

Total European
(White)
African
(Black)
American

Table 1

The category, "Other", is for either an unspecified race or a mixture of multiple races. For the Hispanic population, we distribute the count in this category to the other categories in proportion to their current counts. For the non-Hispanic population, we normalize the data in the same manner. The results appear in Table 2. (For all calculations, we used the maximum precision allowed by our computer although we show only the rounded results in the tables in this essay.)

Table 2

According to data provided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the following numbers of arrests for murder occurred in the USA in 2013.

Total European

8,383 3,799 4,379 98 101 6

Table 3

In 4,850 incidents (out of the above 8,383 incidents), the agency that handled the arrest reported whether the suspect is Hispanic. This ethnic data for the 4,850 incidents appears in the row titled "Actual" in Table 4. In the row titled "Estimated", we estimated the number of Hispanics by assuming that the proportion of Hispanics in 8383 incidents is identical to the proportion in the 4850 incidents.

Total Hispanic non-Hispanic
Actual 4,850 1,052 3,798
Estimated 8,383 1,818 6,565

Table 4

Next, (1) dividing the quantities in Table 3 by the corresponding quantities for the overall population in Table 2 and (2) multiplying the quotient by 100,000 yields the number of arrests per 100,000 people. The results appear in Table 5.

Table 5. Number of Arrests (per 100,000 People) for Murder

In order to determine the rate of arrest for Hispanics, we assume that the rate of arrest for each ethnicity or race in the Hispanic population is the product of a constant and the rate of arrest for the same ethnicity or race in the overall population.[1] Under this assumption, we determined the numbers of arrests in Table 6, where the data for Hispanics appears in its own category.

Table 6

Using Table 2 and Table 6, we determined the rates of arrest in Table 7.

Table 7. Number of Arrests (per 100,000 People) for Murder
with Hispanics as a Separate Category

Grouping Hispanic Africans with other Africans, we derived Table 8 from Table 2, Table 3, and Table 6.

Overall European
(White)

(Black)

Table 8. Number of Arrests (per 100,000 People) for Murder
with Hispanic Africans Grouped with Africans

The data in Table 7 and Table 8 confirms that differences in culture and genetics produces differences in behavior among ethnic and racial groups. This data is consistent with the fact that African nations and Hispanic nations (in Central and South America) have much higher rates of violent crime than a typical European country like Germany (before it was inundated by anti-Western immigrants).

Evolution produced differences in culture and genetics among ethnic and racial groups. We should respect those differences and adjust our immigration policy accordingly.

note
1. An appropriate name for this constant is the coefficient of Hispanic aggression (CHA). For the data in this analysis, the value of CHA is 1.8889 . It is the multiplier by which being Hispanic amplifies the rate of arrest for murder. For example, within the European population, the rate for Hispanics is almost 2 times the rate for non-Hispanics.

Effect of Immigration on a Developing Country

The writer of an essay published by "The Economist" implicitly assumes that differences in culture and genetics do not produce differences in behavior among different ethnic or racial groups. Consequently, immigration does not negatively affect the pace of development for developing countries.

Yet, is that assumption true?

The Meiji Restoration (MR) in Japan proves that the assumption is false. MR began in 1868. During 25 years from that year, the Japanese aggressively modernized and became a wealthy, industrialized democracy. Japan became a Western power.

By contrast, the nations run by Africans or Hispanics are still poor and ignorant. This retarded development is not due to external oppression since most such nations are not controlled by an external power like Russia.

If all ethnic and racial groups have identical behaviors, then every nation would already be modernized (just like Japan) after 25 years of exposure to the West. That such an outcome does not exist proves that differences in culture and genetics produce differences in behavior among different ethnic or racial groups.

As for immigration, imagine the fate of Japan if, in 1868, somehow millions of Africans emigrate to Japan and become 30% of its population. Violence in its cities would increase dramatically. Under pressure from rioting Africans who despise the West, the Japanese government would be forced to abandon Westernization. The modernization of Japan would not have occurred, and it would remain an impoverished 3rd-world country. Today, 12 million Japanese would be living illegally in Russia and would be demanding that the Kremlin grant them a path to citizenship.

So, indeed, uncontrolled immigration into a developing country can severely retard its development -- if the immigrants are intellectually inferior to the native population.

Memorial Service

Ricky LaChance drew the above picture. Todd Fisher, the brother of Carrie Fisher, shared the image with the public. In the picture, the spirit of Carrie Fisher is dressed as Princess Leia in "Star Wars" of 1977, and the spirit of Debbie Reynolds (in a yellow raincoat) is dressed as Kathy Selden in "Singin’ in the Rain" of 1952. The lyrics, "What a glorious feeling. I’m happy again.", are from a song in the latter movie, according to a report by "People". The two women are walking toward heaven.

According to a report by "People", their family had been considering both a private memorial service and a public one. According to another report, Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds would be interred together at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Los Angeles.

According to a report by "People", the family of Carrie Fisher held a private memorial service at her home on January 5. The event was attended by her relatives and friends. The guests dined on fried chicken, collard greens, and cornbread. These dishes were standard fare at parties hosted by Fisher.

According to a report by "People", Reynolds and Fisher were laid to rest on January 6. Fisher had been cremated, and some of her ashes were stored in an urn (shaped like a large Prozac pill) that was placed alongside her mother.
