First, you let the native population dumb themselves down with television, beer, moronic jobs, political lies and stupefactive small talk.
Next, you import random people because they work cheaply, and thus make the native population absolutely hate them:
Preliminary results show that people – especially in Oakland’s ethnic neighborhoods – want bustling neighborhoods with services that remind them of their native land.
Residents in the heavily Latino Fruitvale district enjoy the pedestrian-friendly International Boulevard, where sidewalk vendors sell everything from tacos to toys. In Chinatown, residents say they like the elbow-to-elbow crush of people on the sidewalks shopping at produce stores and other shops, and they like the cacophony of cars and bicycles because it reminds them of big-city life in China.
The bottom line, Lemon said, is that Oakland and other cities need to get beyond one-size-fits-all city planning and architecture and pay heed to individual neighborhood needs.
“I wanted to find out if Hispanics, Chinese, African Americans or Caucasians prefer different types of space,” Lemon said. “Would a city’s resources be better used designing a picturesque park or put into a better streetscape or fields for soccer or football? It’s more than an academic exercise.”
Then, you make the native population feel guilty for reacting, and encourage reconciliation that always puts them in the wrong:
Bowman lacks academic credibility on race issues and media/games, yet many gamers have wholeheartedly embraced his uninformed opinion despite the existence of knowledgeable commentary from anti-racist gamers and people from within the industry who have been critical of Resident Evil 5. Why? Because Bowman tells them what they want to hear, and doesnâ€™t challenge their views.
Youâ€™d be hard-pressed to find mature, critical discussion about race and Resident Evil 5 taking place in mainstream gaming communities.
(They are complaining about a video game that opens with a sequence set in Africa where, not surprisingly, you kill Africans, before moving on to kill Caucasians, Asians and people of indeterminate heritage in other parts of the game. They don’t find it racist that for all these years we’ve been killing white people in games.)
The result: the only culture in common is a lowest common denominator comprised of commerce and individualism. That culture becomes egomaniac:
These days, “narcissist” gets tossed around as an all-purpose insult, a description of self-aggrandizing, obnoxious behavior. Unfortunately, the same word is used to describe a quality that comes in three gradations: a characteristic that in the right amount is a normal component of healthy ego; a troublesome trait when there is too much; and a pathological state when it overwhelms a personality. Narcissism fuels drive and ambition, a desire to be recognized for one’s accomplishments, a sense that one’s life has meaning and importance. The problem occurs when narcissism becomes the primary principle of someone’s personality. Its most extreme form is narcissistic personality disorder, a psychological condition that impairs a person’s ability to form normal relationships and wreaks havoc on those who have close encounters with it.
A recent study titled “Leader Emergence: The Case of the Narcissistic Leader” describes how narcissists have skills and qualitiesâ€”confidence, extraversion, a desire for powerâ€”that propel them into leadership roles but that when true narcissists are in charge, other aspects of their makeupâ€”a feeling the rules don’t apply to them, a need for constant strokingâ€”can have “disastrous consequences.” Yes, we’re talking about you, former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich. After Blagojevich was caught on tape trying to sell a Senate seat, he reveled in the opportunity to appear on talk shows, making the case that he himself was a victimâ€”self-pity being a favorite narcissist refuge.
NPD is one of fewer than a dozen personality disorders described by the American Psychiatric Association. These differ from the major mental illnesses, such as schizophrenia and manic-depression, which are believed to have a biological origin. Personality disorders are seen as a failure of character development.
People with NPD act as if they are special beings who are exceptionally intelligent, accomplished, beautiful, or sexy (or all of the above), to whom lesser people (pretty much everyone else) must bow.
Psychologists Jean Twenge and W. Keith Campbell, authors of The Narcissism Epidemic, who obviously have a stake in proving there is one, estimate around 10 percent of today’s young people have clinical manifestations of NPD. They believe narcissism is a cultural virus that has spread throughout the population over the past several decades.
As a result, it cannot hold itself to any standard. People do not trust people. They cannot follow through on any task not involving themselves wholly. The family breaks down, and the nation plunges into a third world population (that is also and coincidentally of uniformly mixed-race, or a generic population):
More babies were born in the United States in 2007 than any other year in the nation’s history â€” and a wedding band made increasingly little difference in the matter.
While it shows the U.S. population is more than replacing itself, a healthy trend, the teen birth rate was up for a second year in a row.
The birth rate rose slightly for women of all ages, and births to unwed mothers reached an all-time high of about 40 percent, continuing a trend that started years ago. More than three-quarters of these women were 20 or older.
The new numbers suggest the second year of a baby boomlet, with U.S. fertility rates higher in every racial group, the highest among Hispanic women. On average, a U.S. woman has 2.1 babies in her lifetime. That’s the “magic number” required for a population to replace itself.
It’s a shame, but that’s how nations fail.
No matter what political system you have, unless you have morally aware and smart people in it, it gets co-opted by the corrupt.
No matter how much power you have, unless there are people with brains and souls, you get corrupted.
This could easily be reversed by making social values prize a single consensus among our society, and by encouraging people to shun the morally defective or oblivious.
Maybe they’d all move to one of the good times capitals of the third world, where such behavior is expected.
