A HARD QUESTION OF IDENTITY THAT BOILS DOWN TO GENETIC LOAD
—“Curt, I want to ask you, as an Iberoamerican, Hispanic, or Latino American, (whatever you want to call us), What is the propertarian viewpoint of the Spanish-Portuguese conquest of Americas? Taking into cosideratiÃ³n the massive and fast mixing of the “races” (Amerindians, Europeans, and Black Africans). Our countries are among the most Unequal in the world, competing with the south of Africa for IQ disparity. Are we part of the western civilization, or just some weird bastardization of it?”— A Facebook Friend (I’ll leave this one anonymous)
(WARNING: This is an unpleasant assessment of human capital – measurements of this kind are not ‘kind’ to our emotions. But measurements can be made.)
DEMOGRAPHICALLY, IT’S NOT COMPLICATED
The iberian conquest of south american by european people was a near genocide, and certainly a civilization-cide, but the result was in fact, an unequal distribution of net improved human capital.
You (South Americans) are still (presently) a ruling IE Population (Caste) like the IE’s in India vs the Dravidians. You are following the same course of development as they did in India. Like India, the native population is too large for you to genetically carry. Either you will politically interfere with their breeding rates, or continue to form a caste system as you do now, or separate as southern brazilians want to, or you will disappear as did the IE’s of india. There are no IE’s left in India. Only variations of the 70-30 to 30-70 mixture. in that sense, indians evolved into a separate civilization and a separate sub-race.
You (South Americans) are still Western (Christian, Aristotelian, Rule of Law, European) due to genetic traits, institutions, and traditions, but Western Civilization includes the spectrum of peoples: south american (hispanic-amerindian-african), vs north american (european, african, hispanic, and now Asian), vs southern european (old european/balkan), vs northern european (newer european/germanic/scandinavian) , vs slavic (newest european), vs Russian/Slavic (pure european), vs FInnic (Northeastern European). And the three major christian religions, plus the secular christian religions we call variations of social democracy.
At present, yes, south america is part of western civilization although we are seeing quite a bit of literature stating it is it’s own civilization. A trend which will continue once the current experiment with democracy has completed (ended).
In 1000 years, will that be the case? In as little as 100? The genetic load of the native population is far too high. Just as the genetic load of the USA is now too high. and if you follow me you will recall that decline in economic and political potential is non-linear and accelerates rapidly below 97( which is 1/2 std deviation from those who can learn by reading instructions and fixing machines).
The future of South America is that of India and its challenges, not China and its advantages.
The choice of what happens to the european minority in the higher distributions is something you must come to terms with.
As you know, genetic load determines nearly everything.
