Good Fences = Good Neighbors; The Benefits of Segregation

... peace does not depend on integrated coexistence, but rather on well defined topographical and political boundaries separating groups. Mountains and lakes are an important part of the boundaries between sharply defined linguistic areas. Political canton and circle (sub-canton) boundaries often separate religious groups. _PO

History is filled with examples of ethnic violence, the type that erupts when people with differing cultures attempt to live side by side. The Middle East comes to mind, as does Northern Ireland or Yugoslavia. What’s not so common are studies done that show what sorts of things actually work to prevent problems when people of dissimilar backgrounds live next door to one another. Thus, a new study done by Yaneer Bar-Yam and his team at the New England Complex Systems Institute, appears to be particularly relevant. He and his colleagues, describe in their paper on the preprint server arXiv, how a study they’ve done of the ethnically diverse country of Switzerland, shows that political and geographical boundaries have served to keep the peace between the different groups. _PO

Forced multicultural integration typically leads to more violence and crime, despite the good wishes of social engineers and government policy makers. Countries and regions with greater ethnic, religious, cultural, and linguistic homogeneity tend to experience lower levels of crime and violence, all other things being equal.

One cannot help but notice the rapid rise in disorder and violence in European cities, as rising numbers of poorly assimilating immigrants and their children crowd the cities of the UK, Netherlands, France, Sweden, Belgium, and so on. The same phenomenon occurs virtually everywhere that significantly dissimilar groups are forced to live too closely together.

No matter how good the intentions of the highly placed promoters and enforcers of the multiculturalist agenda, they are laying the foundations for bloody violence and civil wars of the future. The violence of Beirut and Baghdad are coming to the first world, riding the magic carpet of multicultural good intentions. If you voted for the multiculturalists, you are largely responsible for what is coming.

If you have gotten smarter since then, like Greg Sheridan did, you will begin taking precautions -- and may even consider re-locating.

These stories are actively suppressed by the politically correct, "skankstream media," so one must actively search for them to understand how common these incidents have become.

I've sent links to friends in Switzerland who are dealing with massive Albanian and Bosnian immigration.

Al Fin, you always please me and I hope you can continue to spread knowledge for many years to come.

A factor affecting this is differential popultion growth of one ethnic community. Switzerland, like other wealthy European countries doesn't have a fast growing native population so its ethnic divisions are not under strain. Howevwer about 10% of the population are "guest workers" who don't have votes but have often lived there for decades. If they became citizens it would be a problem. This differential growth is what truned Kosovo into the gangster hell hole it is (ok assisted by NATO bombers) because Tito allowed Albanian immigration & who, living in Albania, would not want to migrate. The same applies in Mexico and California and muchnof western Europe.

Another example you should look at id Singapore which has several minorities, & a Chinese majority living cheek by jowl in ways which have been disasterous elsewhere in Asia. They have avoided recent clashes by an electoral system that requires any party to draw support from all communities.
