Response to Re: Life Today

 

Some might claim I am guilty of an "ism", but I think there is much to be said for the stability of having a dominant demographic group. Countries with a sizeable majority group (e.g., Japan) tend to be more stable than countries with sizeable competing factions (e.g., the former Yugoslavia, Iraq). In the latter countries, "peace" is often forced by a dictatorial presence that, once removed, allows the existing inter-group hostilities to emerge. It doesn't take much to get such groups at each others' throats (or should I say, without a restraining presence, the groups are at each others' throats).

I have posted here before that having a predominantly-Caucasian population has aided U.S. properity and stability. But, as the various minority groups (including Hispanics, via immigration) grow in size and power, there could be increased competition for control. This could especially be true if the economy starts to tank and people struggle more to meet necessities. (One option to having the country possibly torn apart by such conflicts is for it to split into smaller countries, each being dominated by a group).

Personally, I don't think this is racist or whatever, as I think any group being dominant in a given country is good for stability.
