from The Daily Sheeple:
What makes some diverse societies successful, as opposed to others? If you look around the world, you’ll find plenty of nations that contain people of multiple religions and ethnicities, and more often than not there are explosive tensions between those groups. But in other nations, quite the opposite is true. Every group lives in harmony and works side by side in society without any hiccups (Switzerland is probably the best example of this). So why does diversity work in some countries and not others?
In countries where there are racial tensions, you’ll often find a pecking order. There will be one group that for whatever reason, has the most influence over the government and society at large (which is often used to dominate the other ethnicities), while the other groups often find themselves scrambling to gain more influence and unseat the demographic that’s in charge.
In diverse societies that are functional, everyone has common ground. They may have radically different beliefs, but when it comes to how society is organized, they like the current arrangement. Nobody feels like they’re getting the short end of the stick, nor is anyone trying to subjugate another group. For humans, it’s easy to live and let live when the political system you live under is fair to everyone, and you don’t have to worry about another race or culture telling you how to live your life.
And that’s why the flood of refugees into Europe is such a big problem. These people don’t have common ground with the native population. Right or wrong, the minorities of Europe feel like they’re mistreated and exploited as a cheap labor source, and they don’t assimilate into European society. Meanwhile, the natural-born citizens of Europe often feel like the minorities are abusing their welfare system, and there’s a growing fear that their falling birth rates will eventually cause their culture to be supplanted by the migrant populations. This situation has all the makings for a diverse society that is rife with tension and violence.
Case in point, Norway has a major culture clash underway between two rival groups. On the one hand, you have the right-wing Soldiers of Odin, who present themselves a street patrol group. They first emerged in Finland in 2015 in response to the flood of migrants that have arrived there from the Middle East, and not surprisingly they’ve since opened up chapters all over Europe, including Norway.
