NYT calls for Nigerian genocide
One of the factors that correlates most strongly to instability is a youth bulge in a population. The more unemployed young men ages 15 to 24, the more upheaval.
One study found that for every 1 percentage point increase in the share of the population aged 15 to 24, the risk of civil war increases by 4 percent.
That means that curbing birthrates tends to lead to stability, and that’s where educating girls comes in. You educate a boy, and he’ll have fewer children, but it’s a small effect. You educate a girl, and, on average, she will have a significantly smaller family. One robust Nigeria study managed to tease out correlation from causation and found that for each additional year of primary school, a girl has 0.26 fewer children. So if we want to reduce the youth bulge a decade from now, educate girls today.
Of course, as Bob Whitaker’s group keeps reminding us,
(d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group;
Well actually, it’s not genocide unless
…any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such:
So as long as Nicholas Kristof doesn’t intend to destroy a national, ethnic, racial, or religious group – why, yes he does! He does intend to destroy a religious group. And him and his do make explicit their intent to destroy national groups. But as long as he doesn’t intend to destroy a racial group, which has always been the intended meaning of genocide anyway, then he’s in the clear.
So as long as he doesn’t think about it in the wrong way, he’s not guilty of genocide. Just like anti-Whites when they do the things that Bob Whitaker’s group accuse them of genocide for.
At the Nuremburg trials, following orders was not an excuse. Today, ignorance is.
That’s also why people like commies more than they like nazis. Nazis killed people because they were evil. Commies kill people because they are stupid.
Anyway, progress is dead, and truth and beauty are already reasserting themselves against arrogant politics in subtle ways.
