Elect a new people

Professor Robert Putnam, author of the phenomenally successful Bowling Alone, who also coined the phrase 'social capita'l, is the high priest of social diversity. At least he was until the results of his massive research project on 'diversity' came in. Bob undertook the research to prove how happy-clappy multiculturalism created social capital, you see.


Sadly for Bob, the results, as anyone other than a Sociology professor could have told him, were the exact opposite. The research reveals that immigration and diversity not only reduce social capital between ethnic groups, but also within the groups themselves. Trust, even for members of one’s own race, is lower, altruism and community cooperation rarer, friendships fewer.

In the 41 sites Putnam studied in the U.S., he found that the more diverse the neighborhood, the less residents trust neighbors. This proved true in communities large and small, from big cities like Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston, and Boston to tiny Yakima, Washington, rural South Dakota, and the mountains of West Virginia. In racially and ethnically mixed communities, not only do people not trust strangers, they do not even trust their own kind. They withdraw into themselves, they support community activity less, they vote less.

"People living in ethnically diverse settings appear to 'hunker down,' that is, to pull in like a turtle," writes Putnam. They tend to "withdraw even from close friends, to expect the worst from their community and its leaders, to volunteer less, give less to charity and work on community projects less often, to register to vote less, to agitate for social reform more but have less faith they can actually make a difference, and to huddle unhappily in front of the television."

Scandalously, and in flagrant defiance of the norms of peer-reviewed research, Putnam withheld the research until he could ‘develop proposals to compensate for the negative effects of diversity. He is quoted as fearing – fearing, mind you - that his work on the surprisingly negative effects of diversity will become part of the immigration debate.’ I see, if it gives the wrong result, keep it quiet. Is it an wonder we’re in the mess we are?

Putnam adds a crushing footnote: his findings “may underestimate the real effect of diversity on social withdrawal.”

Now if that’s the case in the US, where immigrants are carefully screened prior to admission, what must it be like in Europe, where vast numbers of poorly educated Africans and Muslims make up the bulk of immigrants?

I guess he deserves some credit anyway for publishing his findings even though they contradicted his personal beliefs on the matter. (Although it's my understanding that he did sit on the data for a while, and then published the results in a somewhat obscure journal, I think -- some Scandinavian journal, was it? -- although that may not have been entirely within his control).

Still, kudos to him for publishing results that he, presumably, didn't want to find. Good on 'im!

SAVANT said...

I take a less charitable view. He undertook the research presumably as part of his tenured position at Harvard. The appropriate thing to do in such circumstances is to get it peer reviewed and published in an academic journal. Then go 'public' and make all sorts of explanations.

My concern is that such findings must get into the discussion on immigration as quickly as possible. Almost anyone in Europe would tell you they'd wind the clock back if they could.

Well, when the majority of people around you are speaking a language you don’t understand, have breeding pit bulls wandering around just waiting to kill you, your family, and/or your cats, and when you look out your back window in time to see your neighbors murder and dismember a goat and then proceed to roast it over an open fire — this does tend to inspire you to sell out and leave. When your home turf suddenly belongs to a group you don’t relate to at all, you got to get out and go to someplace where your neighbors might be willing to call an ambulance if you keeled over in your front yard. Just ask almost any white person in SoCA.

Geert Wilders, the prominent Dutch anti-Muslim politician, has been cleared of "hate speech" crimes for comparing the Koran to Mein Kampf and Islam to Nazism in an Amsterdam court.

In one opinion piece cited during the trial, he wrote: "I've had enough of Islam in the Netherlands; let not one more Muslim immigrate."

Multi-culturalism was on trial.And it lost. Badly.

I see their every whim being catered for.

Take the following case from Ijsseland:

The Ijsseland regional police force supplies only pork-free lunches boxes, in order to take Muslims into consideration.

At first they offered both halal and regular lunch boxes. "But that didn't work," says a spokesperson. There weren't enough, or they didn't get to the right people. "We want to be a diverse force, therefore we take each other into consideration."

Lunch boxes are usually given out only during large-scale police operations. "More police forces do it this way."

Yes, they "want a diverse force" - so actual Dutch officers can just do as they're told and shut up about it.

Sounds like a real anti-immigrant dystopia, doesn't it?

The Netherlands is an anti-immigrant dystopia m'kay?

The way to solve this is to make it an anti-Dutch dystopia m'kay?

FFS they didn't make the lunch boxes pork free for law abiding types like Bernie Madoff's ilk so why should they make an exception now?

Liberals want to let Moslems, pagan Africans, and other assorted ethnics generally run culturally roughshod over Western mores, but want to cry foul when a woman or child is mistreated. Where they draw the line is a difficult prospect. The left bring low-IQ third-world people to Western nations, gives them free housing and living expenses, and tells them they can freely practice their religion. They apparently are provided little or no training in the values and laws of the particular nation and are often times too low mentally to grasp their new situations and act accordingly.

And some of what that was a comment on

Ethnics account for 70 percent of family violence in Oslo.

According to domestic violence coordinator Stein Erik Olsen, families with different ethnic backgrounds are over-represented in the domestic violence statistics.

Nettavisen had intended to write an article about the Norwegian Christmas holiday, Christmas dinners, Christmas beer, Christmas Aquavit and Christmas brawls in Norwegian households.

The hypothesis was that the number of incidences of domestic violence would increase when people have time off and when they consume more alcohol.

That’s not the case in Oslo. According to the domestic violence coordinator and assistant police chief Stein Erik Olsen the ‘Norwegian Christmas violence theory’ is simply a myth, on par with the myth that more burglaries are committed during holidays.

“70 percent of domestic violence cases involve families with a different ethnic background. The cultures concerned don’t touch alcohol and they don’t celebrate Christmas.”

And when the Superbowl was in San Diego the nuts foreced the TV stations to run a domestic violence ad during the Superbowl that stated that the rates of domestic violence went up during the game despite the facts saying otherwise.

It increases all year round as you ad more adeikrs.

"And sometimes they differ in trivial ways, comparatively, but if they differ by very much, or in specific ways, they're — wait for it — incompatible. And that means that your multicultural society will only be feasible if you make sure the multicultural society you're putting together includes only cultures that are pretty much compatible with each other."

When British India was partitioned in the 40s it showed that even though they had the same origins the people with different cultures were not compatible and West and East Pakistan further proved this by further splitting themselves up over incompatibility.

Feel free to roam around on these disgusting snackbars FB pages; hopefully you'll get filled with an empathetic sort of understanding of what we're dealing with in Scandinavia. Without implying that these people are representative for the majority of immigrants in Sweden; these type of immigrant snackbars (together with eastern Europeans) definitely represent a majority in organized crime, petty theft, rape, armed robberies, unprovoked beatings, knife attacks, racial slurs (muslim organisations in Sweden violently demands religious "rights" like minarets with public prayers, while condemning Swedish culture, gender views etc.)
As this snackbars FB page shows, he favors Tony Montana and other gangster stereotypes at the same time as he supports a Stockholm Moské. So like all the snackbars he's "religious" as well as an aspiring gangster. Kinda contradicting?
I'm Sooooo glad he got shot, I'll sleep well tonight, hopefully dreaming of how 90% of his FB friends ends up the same way. Apparently his family and friends are at the hospital raising all kinds of commotions in true snackbar fashion. I'm on a holiday ATM but if I was back home it would have been great to gather some friends and go for a visit and let them know how we perceive their darling son.
As a Swede who's grown up amongst this kind'a people, I'm so fucking tired of the SNACKBARS and their perceived rights of dominance. With that said, I am absolutely for a multi cultural society and have many friends from many countries, but we're civilized and like any normal human share sane, non-religilous norms and while anyone of us can dabber into "areas" marked as criminal by a state, we certainly don't go shooting around us, robbing, stealing, raping, being general snackbars. These degenerates come from all cultures and all countries and races, it's just that Sweden seems to a huge portion of its immigrant quota with GARBAGE like the half-a-headed snackbar currently reaping the benefits of our tax funded hospital...
