People who live in non-diverse environments are healthier

Alvarez’s study reviewed the health records of 2,367 Mexican-Americans and 2,790 African-Americans older than 65, and concluded they lived longer if they inhabited a community mostly populated by their group.

African-Americans “living in a county with an ethnic density of 50% or more … were 46% less likely to report doctor-diagnosed heart disease and 77% less likely to report cancer than those who lived in an ethnic density of less than 25%,” said a summary of the report, authored by Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health. - Daily Caller

This comes as no surprise to anyone who read about Robert Putnam's diversity study.

Without diversity, we know the rules and we know what to do.

With diversity, everything is ambiguous, which seems cool at first, until we realize that then we are as likely to become targets as we are to become praised.

No wonder it's more stressful.

Harvard political scientist Robert Putnam -- famous for "Bowling Alone," his 2000 book on declining civic engagement -- has found that the greater the diversity in a community, the fewer people vote and the less they volunteer, the less they give to charity and work on community projects. In the most diverse communities, neighbors trust one another about half as much as they do in the most homogenous settings. The study, the largest ever on civic engagement in America, found that virtually all measures of civic health are lower in more diverse settings.

Diversity un-does civilization itself.

You no longer have a civilization; you have a job and a place to live, and some laws that you hope protect you.

But no one's on the same page. No one is going in the same direction. You are alone and isolated. And if someone else is offended, the crowd turns on you and tears you apart.

In the name of equality and the liberal ideal of "look ma, no borders" we have destroyed civic life, health, culture, values and our futures as nations or a civilization.

The West can reclaim the past by simply peeling away our diversity laws, cutting funding for diversity groups, and on a social level, rejecting the diversity narrative.

It's happening already but it needs to pick up the pace. It's time to shut down this out-of-control runaway government job creation program called "diversity."

It doesn't work. And now, it's killing people.

Subvert the dominant paradigm, don't be a solipsist.
