Study: Diversity + Proximity = Yup, You Guessed It

Add another vindicating fluff of yer ‘umble narrator’s e’er-so-‘umble ego. Via HBD Chick, a pointer to a 2017 research paper that lovingly (if jargonistically) validates my Diversity + Proximity = War equation and (re)discovers that ethnic diversity in close proximity raises the risk of civil war and other miserable outcomes.

From the paper’s abstract:

We investigate the empirical relationship between ethnicity and culture, defined as a vector of traits reflecting norms, values, and attitudes. Using survey data for 76 countries, we find that ethnic identity is a significant predictor of cultural values, yet that within-group variation in culture trumps between-group variation. Thus, in contrast to a commonly held view, ethnic and cultural diversity are unrelated. Although only a small portion of a country’s overall cultural heterogeneity occurs between groups, we find that various political economy outcomes (such as civil conflict and public goods provision) worsen when there is greater overlap between ethnicity and culture.

Lewontin’s Fallacy refers to Richard Lewontin’s (Jew) deliberate misinterpretation of genetic analysis to push a social constructivist theory of human races. Evolutionary biologist A.W.F. Edwards helpfully corrected the record, noting that, using cluster analysis, race can be accurately classified by comparing the frequency of alleles at multiple loci across populations. Or, as one person in that Twatter thread explained it: “Take eye color. Variable within race; largely same variants across different races.”

In other words, the observation that genetic variation is greater within groups than between groups is a banal talking point, because the variance that exists between races is phenotypically and behaviorally classifiable, and these racial differences are profound and impactful. Lewontin’s Fallacy leads to the illogical belief that mice and men are nearly the same because we share 97% of our DNA; that 3% may be small but it makes all the difference.

This digression is important, because it’ll thwart leftist ideologues from misreading the nature of this paper’s findings, which are bad news for the diversity-is-our-strength crowd.

From the conclusion:

If anything, higher cultural diversity reduces the probability of civil conflict and increases public goods. However, in countries where ethnicity is more strongly predictive of culture, as captured by a high χ2 , violent conflict is more likely, and public goods provision tends to be lower. Our interpretation of this empirical result is that in societies where individuals differ from each other in both ethnicity and culture, social antagonism is greater, and political economy outcomes are worse.

Diversity + Proximity = War (by any means).

The first part of that conclusion is interesting in itself, because what I think the authors have captured (but failed to reason through) is that within-group cultural diversity has lower probability of civil conflict because one, race and ethnicity act as a bonding agent that override cultural distinctions and two, a large and invasive welfare state is inevitably established to keep the peace in multicultural societies. AKA the Danegeld.

The effectiveness of the Danegeld in managing social tension is reduced with increasing racial and ethnic diversity, because the natural state of most people is generosity toward genetic kin (this is a subconscious motivation and most people will conform to social expectation bias and deny it if asked). Only NW Euro Whites have strong out-group altruism that becomes toxic and self-annihilating in a globalist context. The study has found exactly this: societies that are both multiethnic/multiracial and multicultural have more social stress, antagonism, corruption, and low trust.

Think of the social spider study linked here.

Summarizing, a lack of inter-group diversity…actually increases individual diversity, through the mechanism of amplifying preexisting personality differences among same-group members. In contrast, a lot of inter-group diversity (say, moving to a SWPL hipster enclave in a minority white city soaked in vibrancy that makes daily living an adventure in survival) produces a uniformity of thought and…of aesthetic within groups, which is why we see SWPL hoods in nearly every major American city converging on the same farm-to-table Obama-loving liberal hypocrite norm.

Paradoxically, group cohesiveness creates more individual diversity, while inter-group diversity creates more intra-group uniformity. Diversity + proximity = conformity.

In other words, the diversity that really matters — diversity of thought and personality — flourishes in less racially diverse environs.

In all-White societies, you have your geeks, jocks, goths, droogies, skaters, scenesters, preppies, nerds, etc. That’a a lot of intra-group diversity, but it’s the kind of diversity — of thought and personality — that doesn’t much interest the anti-White demon horde. They want the kind of Diversity™ that strikes fear and loathing into everyone’s hearts and forces Whites into a pan-White identity that jettisons quaint personality differences in favor of a racial bloc that can withstand the encroachment of competing ethnocentric races who don’t share the White predilection for kumbaya universalism.

Ethnic and racial diversity can have the opposite effect on cultural diversity, pushing a society to a uniformity of ideology and thought (think of how much people walk on eggshells in a multiracial milieu to avoid offending anyone) that will boil over into seething resentment and social conflict.

I’m one of those post-racial pathologically altruist Whites, so I know of what I speak. I can get along with people as long as they’re sympatico with my outlook, entertain me, and provide balance to my temperament, but I have the smarts and immunity to virtue signaling that gives me the perspective lacking in most hyper-outbred Whites. So I’m duty bound to overcome facets of my genetic inheritance and embrace the pattern-recognition wisdom that allows me to understand all-too-well the nature of the 99% of the world that doesn’t think like me and my kind.

I’ve added a link to this latest research to the Diversity + Proximity = War reference page at the top of this blog, now up to 42 peer-reviewed studies on the baleful interaction of racial diversity and social cohesion. Forward it to your shitlib friends for fun and triggering!

    Liberals always talk about loving diversity, this amuses me as most ordinary people do not celebrate an international airport like JFK or Heathrow for being diverse, people are not saying how amazing it is that you can see over 200 nationalities there. I often feel that liberals who celebrate diversity are not actually interested in people, they are simply interested in the idea of diversity itself, there is nothing boring about a place where 95% of the people are of the same ethnicity.

  5. What’s a good way to qualify a woman when you first meet her to see if she’s wife/mother material rather than a careering hussy? There are obvious outward signs of a hussy, but beyond those, I’ve been trying to come up with a way to get her to tip her hand to say whether she’s geared toward having kids. I want to do this without me losing massive status by revealing that that’s what I’m considering her for.


    • Tell her you want to have 8 kids. If the possibiliy intrigues her, she may be mother of your children material. If she recoils and says that’s somehow not respectable or that it would be too expensive or worst of all it would ruin her career, she’s not for you

        I’ve watched many women in their late 30’s/early 40’s undergo fertility treatments (unsuccessfully) after years of dating and pursuing a career in the big city It’s very sad.

        I sympathize with women wanting to enjoy their youth (I.e. being a young person without the responsibilities of a family), but they fail to realize that motherhood is a young woman’s game. It’s exhausting work. Birthing kids is one thing; having the energy to raise them is something else entirely. I had kids later in life and, while I enjoyed my younger years thoroughly, I wish I had had them a couple years earlier. It would have made a huge difference.

      • What Ralph said.

        I also had kids quite a bit later. Love being a father, so better late than never. But sometimes I think when my kids graduate from college I’ll be in my 60s. That kinda sucks. I mean, I realize that I will get to spend much less of my life with my children than I would have if I’d had them 10-15 years earlier. You’ll understand what I mean when you have kids of your own.

        Young men here — if you want kids (and trust me, 9 of 10 of you do even if you think you don’t right now) then stop screwing around, find a traditional girl and marry her. The tricky part is finding a traditional girl. (Yes, screwing around is fun — but trust me you won’t remember it much and it’s nothing compared to the meaning of having a family.)

        Marrying the wrong woman will make your life h*ll.

        Dalrock has some money posts on screening tests to run on women to see quickly if they are good wife material. Gold. I used them to screen my wife.

        There is one career girl that really stood out to me. She was close to 40, or early 40’s, and having a myomectomy done (Her uterus was full of fibroids-round hard benign tumors). She had so many that the doc was having a tough time getting them all out. The surgeon is a fertility specialist I knew well enough to ask, “Why didn’t you just schedule her for a hysterectomy”, which would be standard for a case like this with the patient’s age, condition, etc. Doc says patient, a childless unmarried business woman, still hopes to conceive a child some day. Talk about wishful thinking. No way her post-surgery Frankenstein uterus is in any condition, at her age, to provide a safe environment for a baby.

        More generally, though, remember the cardinal rule of male behavior: Betas axe questions, Alphas issue commands.

        BETA: “Gosh, do you think maybe might want to go off of your b!rth control, and try for a baby, maybe, like, uh, in the next year or two? I mean, I’m not trying to be pushy or anything – I ‘m just wondering – what do you think?”

        ALPHA: Get off your b!rth control. Cleanse your body & make it pure for my seed. Now.

        In fact, if I were serious about this, then, in the throes of passion, when you’ve got your hand in her pants, with your finger on her cl!t, and she’s already starting to cum for you, I’d throw it down immediately, as a ground rule for the entire relationship.

        YOU: So are you on birth control?

        SHE: Yeah, I got an IUD a couple of years ago.

        YOU <<< pulling your hand out of her pants >>>: Get it removed. Now. And don’t contact me again until you’ve cleansed your body and made it pure for my seed.

        Then walk right out the door of her apartment and maintain absolute radio silence until she initiates contact to tell you that she’s ready.

    • Don’t over think it, man. Just ask her what she thinks about kids. I tell girls all the time that I want five kids, preferably with the same woman and I’m gonna call them all George. After they chuckle I say, “seriously though, I really do want a big family, what do you want.” ZFG, unapologetic. You’re interviewing them.

    The diversity experiment has been tried many of times:

    – Austria-Hungary Empire
    – Ottoman Empire
    – Al-Andalus
    – Soviet Union
    – Mongol Empire
    – Spanish Empire
    – Roman Empire

    All of them ended up in failure. And the US experiment will fail as well, it’s just a matter of time. You can’t build a nation without there being a common cultural/ethnic/religious thread that binds the people that inhabit it.

    In fact, the US experiment being rather extreme, as far as the pushing of diversity is concerned, it is remarkable that it all hasn’t come crushing down already.

        lolz oh yeah. It was a golden moment in the franchise–Cold War still a thing, John Barry’s last score, Dalton’s crisply intense performance, and a labyrinthine plot (false flags! chickenhawk warmongers! a Jew playing a KGB general trying to bring down the Russian government and get the goys to do it for him! opium in Afghanistan! defective border security!) that’s like a cornucopia of topical references to almost everything going on in the world thirty years later.

        LtK has great lead (male) performances, and that awesome truck chase at the end, but its uneven tone and remarkably uneven budget (most of it looks like a made-for-tv movie, with many of the walk-on parts clearly played by nonprofessional actors) drag it down for me. The lack of Dalton’s 1991 Bond film remains one of my supreme life regrets–I’d give a lot to visit that timeline and rent the vhs.

  26. Mostly bullshit.

    In modern parlance, “civil war” just means conflict between groups (often ethnic) in US provinces, colonies, and satrapies, i.e. jurisdictions under the US nuclear umbrella.

    Besides that, outright armed conflict, generally only happens between two comparable powers. In a conflict, if one power is dramatically more powerful than the other, the greater power will demand something from the lesser power and the lesser power will, probably with some grumbling, grant it. Only when two powers are approximately equal in power, or one side is fully deluded as to the in-reality balance of power, will the two sides actually engage in the grand joust that is full-scale armed conflict.

    There’s nothing magical about the “diversity”. Merely being within the borders of a place does not make one the dominant party. All men are not created equal, and thousands of goatherds or beaners with rifles cannot prevail over the logistical backing of USG.


  27. Just wanted to chime in on Rose McGowan versus The Wall. I remember being in grade school and watching Scream.

I remember finding her on imbd afterwards because I was enthralled by her beauty. Dare I suggest that now my current SMV is higher than hers? Insane. The Wall spares no soul.


  28. A nation is defined as “a large aggregate of people united by common descent, history, culture, or language, inhabiting a particular country or territory.”

    I think America has failed as a nation. It isn’t immediately obvious to people because they aren’t usually around a lot of diversity. Neighborhoods and cities are de facto segregated and become moreso every year. When you look around your own neighborhood you see people like yourself and think “yeah, this is America”. But that is not representative of the country as a whole.

    It isn’t “doom porn” or being a “demoralization shill” or “subversive” to acknowledge that the United States in 2017 does not “form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity”.

    Not by a long shot. Especially the posterity part. And that is what bothers me. I get the feeling that the nation I am passing on to my children is not the one I inherited. The nation of my parents, and grand parents and great grandparents, and great-great-great grandparents is gone.
