What is it really, that is called “xenophobia”?

An ancient instinct that is vital: “Wait, who are you? “


What is it really, that is called “xenophobia”?: Article translated and republished from “Nya Dagbladet Analys”



What really is referred to by the word “xenophobia”?

Xenophobia is no human idea, it is not a political ideology. The inherent notion that individuals from other ethnic groups are different is as old as humanity itself.

That political leaders throughout human history have tried to either foment or stifle this innate team spirit does not change its origin or function. Ultimately, while it has often come to be called xenophobia, it is a kind of defense mechanism of an ethnic group. It has a cohesive function but is also vital to the group’s survival.

It is easy to think
today that racism is obsolete in modern societies, and political ideas that multicultural and multi-ethnic societies are something we can decide to create, and then use various integration programs as a tool to make this work artificially.

It is important to remember that “xenophobia” has always been the human diversity condition. Without this desire or sense of distinction and boundaries no ethnic group could have existed for very long before it would be adulterated and perish again.

The world’s major ethnic groups; blacks, whites and Asians, and all its subsets of peoples did not come into existence overnight. It has taken nature tens of thousands, if not millions of years to enrich the earth with the human diversity which we have today. The birth of a new ethnic group has always been dependent on a distinct geographic location. For the purpose of various ethnic groups’ birth and continued maintenance, they have always required “xenophobia”, more properly termed “alien skepticism” or “stranger caution” as a prerequisite.

The principle or the basic human function is exactly the same as in individuals. An individual who is not skeptical or cautious when confronted with a stranger will not survive in the long run. This instinct is basically in all living creatures on earth and is deeply rooted.

The function and conclusion of prejudices

“Alien skepticism” or “fear” of the unknown is a kind of first line of defense. Here comes the concept of prejudice. An individual always makes a first assessment of the foreigner—a judgment before it knows any details for sure. We must also understand that individual assessment, when the unknown has become known, can shift from prejudice to “judgment”, a conclusion based on knowledge.

However, today we are told by the modern political system that prejudice is just ignorance and as soon as this ignorance is gone, the foreigner should be welcomed. In fact, the individual’s or group’s conclusion could be that the foreigner cannot necessarily be given a pass, and may intend to cause us harm.

Racists in every expression of the negative sense, of course, are also those who want to cause an ethnic group’s unity and uniqueness to perish through mixing and division. Many nations and entire civilizations during the history of humanity have vanished for this reason.  Either by displacement and extinction or by blending them away out of all recognition.

A true defender of the world’s human diversity turns naturally against both extremes of racism and genocide.  Moreover, the criminalization of these two extremes is stated in the UN Declaration of Human Rights of 1948, saying that not only is performance of these acts criminal but it is also criminal to instigate them. Thus, the express intent or encouragement to try to create a multi-ethnic society, which inherently violates the right to the preservation of the ethnic and cultural characteristics of the group, or displacement or eradication of a people, could fall within the scope of this crime. In the UN declaration it says, among other things, that the following shall be considered as genocide:

“Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life intended to lead to its complete or partial physical destruction; (d) to take measures intended to prevent births within the group; (e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group. “

In the ongoing development of today’s Sweden where a large number of non-European immigrants are coming to the country, a natural segregation process is marked by Swedes who move away from immigrant areas while various immigrant groups cluster together, and those immigrant groups quickly receive a residence permit and can select where in the country they want to stay. In this way the crime referred-to in the last paragraph concerning genocide may be relevant, eg. in cases where parents are not allowed to put their children into any school but are forced to send them to the local multi-ethnic schools where Swedish children in many Swedish schools already are a minority in their own country.

In the next step they might endeavor to create a multi-ethnic society through the use of integration programs, and this could fall within the scope of “hate crimes” because there would be a restriction of the indigenous group’s autonomy.

The general conclusion regarding the question of earth’s ethnic diversity is that the property known as “xenophobia” is a necessary evil. The key instead now is to thwart its extremes. The leading political establishment in general seems to dumb-down and exaggerate the image of our instinct for caution, instincts like defense and self-preservation. This they do, among other things, by trying to characterize as a disease, what is actually an instinct and a function that acts as a guarantor for the conservation of all communities, by using a negative-sounding designation such as “xenophobia”. If there is an “undue fear” of the unknown, its assessment must of course be something that is considered “reasonable” and make sense, and it needs to exist and be expressed.

There has also been a confusion between the fact that ethnic groups are different and should be valued as such, with the idea that ethnic groups are ranked differently, the two are very different things. The most extreme manifestations of the debate would not even concern themselves with the thought that there are different kinds of people on earth.

This is often presented as options of black and white, where either you accept today’s multicultural and ethnic change in Sweden beyond recognition, or you accept hatred and abuse against all immigrants who are in Sweden and the need to advocate a hundred percent purity. Swedes are a generally balanced people and have an absolutely predominant wish for neither of these extremes. Discernment is often the first casualty when debate deteriorates.

Reliance on these extremes and extremists, mainly in politics, business and the media is driving the currently extreme situation. However, what remains and ensures that we can get a more balanced society and social climate in the future, is that our age-old instinct for self-preservation can take on a balanced and natural expression.

Swedes may be very open-minded, but they also have a right to their own preservation.

A-Symmetry as Semiotic of European Evolutionary Advance

A-Symmetry as Semiotic of European Evolutionary Advance


Morphology is a branch of biology dealing with the study of the form and structure of organisms and their specific structural features.


While becoming the first geneticist to popularize Mendelism, William Bateson observed puzzlement in his colleagues over a strange morphological phenomenon in crustaceans.

His colleagues noted that some species of crabs have asymmetrical appendages, one being larger than the other, but when one of the pair was lost, another grew back in mirror image to the other. To this they were disposed to ask, how did the crab gain symmetry?

Through the extended analysis, Bateson hypothesized that his colleagues had been asking the wrong question. They should rather have been asking, “how did the crab lose asymmetry?”

It was in fact, in the course of this very investigation into the biological laws of symmetry that William Bateson first coined the term “genetics.”


…....


And from this inquiry he established “Bateson’s rule”, which asserts that when an asymmetrical appendage is regrown after loss, the resulting limb will be symmetrical, in mirror image with the other limb.

The rule by itself is not of particular relevance to our concerns for European ontology and nationalism. However, steps taken in ecological and cybernetic analysis and arrival at Bateson’s rule of morphology do have significant implications, suggesting hypotheses for semiotics of ecological (and ontological) correction -  including of human ecology.

The origins of modern Europeans

Posted by jonjayray on Thursday, 29 December 2005 06:55.

This is my third attempt to make sense of the Brace craniofacial data

Physical anthropology is not my field at all but I have a slight interest in the genetic origins of the British population from which I personally am descended so I do occasionally note studies that attempt to enlighten us about that.  I have however given up taking notice of the DNA studies as their conclusions seem to vary between saying that the English population is almost wholly Celtic and almost wholly Anglo-Saxon.  My conclusion is that DNA is so complex and our understanding of it is still so slight that we will have to wait for some time before anything definitive emerges.

I was therefore rather interested to see the latest paper by Loring Brace using craniofacial measurements of ancient skulls to trace European ancestry.  Such measurements do at least offer the prospect of being a lot simpler than DNA.  There is an abstract of the paper here,  the full paper is available here and there is a popular summary of it here.  I am afraid, however, that I also find difficulties with Brace’s conclusions.  What Brace appears to have found is that modern Europeans are in appearance more like very ancient Europeans than the Europeans who came in between.  The Europeans who came in between were the first farmers (he refers to them as “neolithic”) and he says that they had heavier features than either present-day or very ancient Europeans.  His explanation for his finding is that the first farmers came into Europe from the Middle East and taught the natives how to farm but then mostly died out (or at least left little genetic legacy). 

That seems reasonable at first glance but if the natives soon learnt to farm off the incomers, how come most of the farmer remains are not in fact those of the natives?  Surely it is absurd to claim that the natives conveniently refrained from farming until the incomers died out! 

What seems a slightly more reasonable explanation to me is that the original European population evolved in two directions—the more heavyset farmers and the more gracile hunters but, perhaps due to climatic changes, the hunters eventually took up farming too and in the process wiped out most of the original farmers—aided in that, no doubt, by the superior fighting skills that their original hunting lifestyle had given them.

That of course leaves us with the problem of explaining how farming APPEARS to have originated in the Middle East.  Time-lines that far back are however very speculative so I see no real difficulty in supposing that the first farmers in the Middle East in fact fled there from Europe.

But that still leaves the question of where the original Europeans came from.  Brace believes that they gradually evolved from Neanderthals—which conflicts with the usual view that they originated from Cro-Magnons out of Africa.  Brace’s data do conveniently show little affinity between Cro-Magnons and modern Europeans so that is certainly interesting. The only firm conclusion that seems to emerge from it all is that the present-day population of Europe is very ancient.


Loring Brace and his craniofacial measurements

Posted by jonjayray on Wednesday, 28 December 2005 14:59.

I recently referred to this paper in which C. Loring Brace used craniofacial measurements to argue that modern Europeans are descended from ancient Europeans rather than from invaders.  Yet his data seemed to contradict that:  “the Neolithic peoples of Europe and their Bronze Age successors are not closely related to the modern inhabitants”.  How come?

It seems that Brace is one of those Leftist nutters who believe that race does not exist  and as part of that he seems to need to believe that modern Europeans gradually evolved from Neanderthals rather than from incoming Cromagnons. So even Neanderthals are not really different!

So I think Brace had arrived at his conclusions long before he did his study and would have presented those conclusions regardless of what he found.  His sample of 24 skeletons is in any case ludicrously small for examining generalizations as large as those he wants to make.  There is an attempt to put Brace’s findings into plain English here but that attempt also founders on Brace’s contradictions.  We read “Ancient peoples had heavier brow ridges than modern Europeans. “The faces were also broader and the jaws were heavier,” Brace added”.  But we also read as the summary of the findings:  “Europeans inherit their looks from Stone Age hunters, new research suggests.”  Black is white, I guess.  Oh well!  Leftists never have been much influenced by reality.

Addendum by J Richards:

Whoops, John!  Sorry for adding this information to your post, but your post is based on a serious misunderstanding of the paper (in addition to your not reading it), and I would rather add this here than in the comments section, which some people may not bother reading.  There were 24 skull measurements, not 24 skulls analyzed.  The authors analyzed a total of 1,282 skulls.  This study is consistent with a recent DNA analysis showing the same thing.  Recently, a 700,000-year-old human presence was reported in England (download pdf).  What all these things mean is that whites, especially Northern and Central European populations, have been evolving separately from non-whites for much longer than what would have been the case if Middle Eastern populations would have had a major impact on the European gene pool when farming spread up North, i.e., the findings do not undermine the concept of race.  The stone-age hunters—just before farming spread to Northern and Central Europe—from which most Northern and Central European individuals descend apparently had a high prevalence of fine facial features similar to that seen in these European populations today rather than the more robust features of the Neolithic samples, some impact of which is seen in Southern Europeans.  Those who wish to read this paper can download it here (pdf).

Update

I am indebted to J. Richards for adding a modicum of enlightenment to our understanding of the Brace paper—though I am a little surprised that he did not speak up in response to my initial post about the matter.  As I see it, however, both methodological and theoretical problems remain.  Brace seems to assume that all his neolithic skeletons were from incomers.  Are we to assume that ALL the simultaneous original Europeans had no neolithic skills?  That seems improbable even in Brace’s own “cultural diffusion” terms.  I would have thought that a more cautious assumption would be that at least some, if not all of the neolithic skeletons were of original Europeans.  And Brace’s view that we are all descended from Neanderthals—who were physically very different from modern Europeans—is also surely called into question by finding fine features way back in the European past.


The questionable contribution of the Neolithic and the Bronze Age to European craniofacial form

Posted by jonjayray on Monday, 26 December 2005 03:00.

Below is the Abstract of an article by C. Loring Brace et al.  I don’t at all follow the reasoning of the article or the comment on it also reproduced below.  Perhaps readers here will have more success than I have had.

Many human craniofacial dimensions are largely of neutral adaptive significance, and an analysis of their variation can serve as an indication of the extent to which any given population is genetically related to or differs from any other. When 24 craniofacial measurements of a series of human populations are used to generate neighbor-joining dendrograms, it is no surprise that all modern European groups, ranging all of the way from Scandinavia to eastern Europe and throughout the Mediterranean to the Middle East, show that they are closely related to each other.

The surprise is that the Neolithic peoples of Europe and their Bronze Age successors are not closely related to the modern inhabitants, although the prehistoric/modern ties are somewhat more apparent in southern Europe. It is a further surprise that the Epipalaeolithic Natufian of Israel from whom the Neolithic realm was assumed to arise has a clear link to Sub-Saharan Africa.

Basques and Canary Islanders are clearly associated with modern Europeans. When canonical variates are plotted, neither sample ties in with Cro-Magnon as was once suggested. The data treated here support the idea that the Neolithic moved out of the Near East into the circum-Mediterranean areas and Europe by a process of demic diffusion but that subsequently the in situ residents of those areas, derived from the Late Pleistocene inhabitants, absorbed both the agricultural life way and the people who had brought it.

The PNAS Abstract above states that neither Cromagnon nor other late immigrants into Europe have had much of an influence on (genetically founded) facial types, but all such immigrants were absorbed by the descendants of “late pleistocene,” i.e., paleolithic Europeans.

Not a surprise this, to those who have studied carefully skeletal details of paleo-Europeans.  One may now return to a long-held view (esp in France) that regional evolution occurred from H sapiens neanderthalensis, although that subspecies is not explicitly named, (resident from the Atlantic to the Hindukush). Of course, Chinese anthropology had long seen things in similar fashion.
