The truth about assimilation


The truth about assimilation needs to be exhumed at a time when both America and Europe are increasingly falling apart mainly due to problems of assimilation. This taboo subject is spoken of at the risk, or rather the certainty, that you will be called a racist.

Nevertheless, real, basic, human nature is ethnocentric, as well as being kin-centered, gender defined, age-graded, heterosexual marriage-making, hierarchical, even xenophobic, with group-selection as the primary unit of successful selection. What is astounding is not the truth of this but the way it has been buried! What power to do this!

The great irony is that beneath the ruling Utopian fantasies and outright lies of those who insist that all human beings are the same and that we can all get along if only we were not as we really are, is the advancement of the group who advocate against such favoritism. Human beings are something aren't they?

Anyway, this is why ethnopluralism needs to be considered. If we look clearly at the problem we can see that distinctively different groups simply do not assimilate with one another, and we therefore will need ethnic territories to keep the peace, protected with some sort of federalism. Such things as immigration and the constitutional separation of powers and states figure strongly in this reality, which is not spoken of.

It must not be considered evil to admit this.
