Letters by a modern St. Ferdinand III about cults

Gab@StFerdinandIII -

Plenty of cults exist - every cult has its 'religious dogma', its idols, its 'prophets', its 'science', its 'proof' and its intolerant liturgy of demands.  Cults everywhere:  Corona, 'The Science' or Scientism, Islam, the State, the cult of Gender Fascism, Marxism, Darwin and Evolution, Globaloneywarming, Changing Climate, Abortion...

Europe vs. USA – Poorer societies will have more problems with Islam

The poorer your nation, the more problems with Muslims and immigrants you will have

by StFerdIII

Europe has a problem with Muslim immigrants. The Muslims and Arabs in Europe are mostly marginalized, poorer than the mainstream citizen, endure language and cultural problems, and have a lower education than the average citizen. They are ghettoized, packed together and fall easy prey to extremist preachings and ravings. There is in other words, no assimilation of Islamic and Arabic peoples into European society. In most nations Turks, Arabs and Muslims are basically viewed as second-class citizens.

Contrast the travails and assimilation problems of Islamic communities in
Europe, to the US experience.

In the
US, unlike in the EU, most [not all of course but most], Muslims and Arabs arrive legally. The legal status of newly arrived Muslims and Arabs gives them an opportunity to work, study and integrate into American society. Contrary to recent popular nonsense the US is the best place in the world to get ahead, move up the social ladder and be rewarded from hard work, and intelligent application. The stratified societies of Europe, with their elitist orientation and layered educational and job classes, militate against the easy upward movement of new immigrants.

US is a mobile and fluid society in which the assimilation of immigrants works. The Americans have rightly rejected the ‘mosaic’ and crass ‘multiculturalism’ of Europe and Canada. The multi-cult model is indeed a craven political ploy to buy votes and divide ethnic groups against each other to obtain favors, status and political access. In Canada and Europe Islamic and Arab immigration is clustered from a few countries. In Canada Iraqi, Iranian, Pakistani and Bangladeshi immigration predominates. In Europe it varies by country – with the Turks in Germany, the Algerians in France, the Moroccans in Holland, the Pakistani’s in England and so on. These clusters make assimilation doubly difficult since ethnic chauvinism develops in the immigrant group preventing the acceptance of the host country’s values and system. Indeed recent studies in France indicate quite clearly that 2nd and 3rd generation Muslims feel less French then their parents. Terror attacks in Spain and England highlight the same trend.

US avoids this problem through greater assimilation of more diverse immigrant backgrounds. In the US there is a great mix of Muslim and Arab backgrounds. There is probably between 2 to 3 million Muslim and Arabic Americans though precise figures are hard to come by. According to the US census, most Arab-Americans aren't Muslim, and most Muslim Americans aren't Arab. US Muslims come from Asia, parts of the Middle East and Africa and are not ethnically for the most part Arabic. According to the US census there are 1.2 million Americans of Arab descent, of whom only 24% are Muslim. Most likely there are upwards of a million Muslims who are not Arabs. Whatever the exact numbers it is certain that the Arab-Muslim population in the US comprises less than 1 % of the total population. The best medicine against domestic terrorist cancer, is integration.

Iimportantly for the Americans, the Arab-Muslim population does very well economically. They possess an above-average median household income of $52,000 and while they do cluster in their ethnic groups they have a high intermarriage rate of over 75%, suggesting that they will gradually be consumed into the American melting pot. This is good news for
US security concerns regarding home-grown terror. The surest way to defuse home grown Arab and Muslim terrorist activities is to integrate such immigrants into the US mainstream and let them acquire a Western education and access the wealth of US society through good jobs and high incomes.

Nothing of the sort is taking place in
Europe and Canada. In these societies immigrants are political-legal tools used to buy votes or enrich lawyers who attack society for human rights violations. The Arab-Muslim communities in these countries are not assimilated, do not enjoy high wealth creating opportunities and feel marginalized. They live in countries, which have a 30-40 % lower standard of living and income per capita than the US. For instance the GDP per capita in the US is $39.000 and in Canada it is $27.000. Socialist egalitarianism ensures equal money and perhaps education for all, but it also mandates less opportunity and fewer possibilities of developing a true national culture of force and personality. It leads inevitability, in the long term, to social decay.

In countries where socialism and big government are national identities Arab-Muslim disaffection will ensure conflict. In these nations immigrant groups are herded like cattle into ghettos and have relative to their host society, less opportunity to earn an education and make money, thus sowing the seeds of conflict. This has been true throughout history and is another good reason why the multi-cultural obsession, purveyed by big government and their socialist supporters, is a terrible idea. ©
