The future you can look forward to with diversity

before_diversity

Back in the 1980s, we heard a lot about Latin America. The people were so lovely and the food divine. White suburban women gushed over how diverse it was, and how the night life was good. The newscasters opined that the “Latin American way” would be the next big thing after Americanism. People flocked to Rio de Janeiro and other international cities.

Today, we are looking at a map of the 50 most violent cities in the world and seeing that 41 are in Latin America with 21 in Brazil alone.

It turns out that “diversity is our strength” is just a slogan and the media was cooking the stats about how the future was very bright and very Latin American. Instead, Latin America looks like a nightmare: bankrupt, disorganized, corrupt, violent and unstable.

The diversity that was praised back in the 1980s is the one thing that is not an illusion. These societies are diverse, with Caucasian, Asian and African populations thronging together and many mixed-race people. All of these 41 cities are quite diverse and none are not diverse. All of the 21 are highly diverse as your tour guide is sure to tell you if he survives long enough.

Look at this list of Leftism dreamlands that you could have adopted for yourself if you just listened to their promises of a better world:

I can just see those 1980s travel agents leaning away from their flickering green CRT terminals and saying, “Latin America is really big this year. Most say it’s the future. And it has such vibrant diversity…”

Everything the Left says is a lie, doubly so when they use facts and figures, because they have always carefully left out anything that contradicts their thesis and massaged the rest into pure propaganda. Back in the 1980s, they were sure we would have all moved to Brazil by now.

  1. Of course, none of them ever planned to so much as look at any of these places on the maps. If they ever went there, it would be to push/abuse NATO, make their own cashcows free of taxes and to stay on Haciendas which they own and their asses are thoroughly kissed. Nobody ever looks at what these people do.

  2. And that’s how bad it gets.

    100 murders per 100 000 people? Presuming 98% of them will be men, that means 1 in 500 men in the whole city are murdered each year. So in a 20 year period each adult male has roughly a 1 in 25 chance of dying a violent death.

    I can imagine some of the very worst areas are 5 times as bad as the city-wide average. So in some ‘neighbourhoods’ your odds of meeting a sticky end at some point in your life must be 1/5, or less.

    I bet there’s been plenty of school classes that must have had 5 lads killed at some point after graduating. That’s Hell.

    But the liberal sees a diverse Hell, so hence an opportunity for virtue-signalling and social-status worrying. What does it truly say about a person’s soul who can look at country like Venezuela and say: ‘Yep, that’s what we need more of in my country’?

    1. To your excellent summary I add this:

      The liberal sees a movie.

      How could would it be, he thinks, to be one of those young studs ripping around on his motorbike, fighting off other gangs and living by his wits. Everyday exciting; fascinating. Not like his boring 1968er administrative job and condominium! Oh no. He’d be rocking out, forever young, like West Side Story meets Neuromancer, in one of those fascinating, diverse, paradise places. The violence is part of the appeal that makes him look cool.

  3. I blame you for the next big leftist gambit:
    “Oh, those poor, poor, vulnerable people! We must bring them all here, so their lives are no longer at-risk.”

    1. Perhaps we can settle them in St. Louis, Baltimore, Detroit and New Orleans so they will feel at home.

      1. I knew a fellow from New York who moved to the suburbs and moved right out a few months later. It turns out he had trouble sleeping without constant car horns, train sounds, sirens and scattered gunshots to fill the night. He said it was too “empty” otherwise.

    2. Someone needs to write a play about what happens when America and Europe completely troll the world by inducing all of them to move here, then moving ourselves into their now-abandoned tropical paradises. It sounds like this might be the 1968er retirement plan.

    1. That line of questioning leads to the fact that if you can check the box, you’ve got a major advantage. Thanks to affirmative action, every organization “collects” people from marginalized groups — minorities, gays, women — in order to boast of its statistics and pre-emptively defend against accusations of discrimination. I agree it is completely inappropriate, for me most of all because people are individuals, not statistics!

  4. Apparently the world’s happiest people are found in South America. Do they just really enjoy the killing?

    1. There are two major problems with self-reporting, as was undoubtedly used for that figure: (1) the distilling of a broader question into a simple yes/no style response; for example, northern Europeans may care about more than “happiness” in order to feel well-being and (2) the people being questioned are completely unaware of the other options.

  5. Venezuela, Mexico, and brazil all have very strict prohibition of civilian firearms ownership. It is almost impossible for a citizen to legally purchase a firearm of any kind. so much for gun laws making you safer.
