Helmuth Nyborg on the Genetic Decline of Western Civilization: Denmark as a Case Study
Source: The Occidental Observer

The Danish psychologist Helmuth Nyborg has an academic paper soon to be published in Personality and Individual Differences (“The decay of Western Civilization: Double Relaxed Natural Selection“). Nyborg is well-known for his work showing a sex difference in IQ favoring males, a paper which resulted in an investigation of his work and a reprimand from his university. (Nyborg describes the “witch hunt” he endured  here.)

Nyborg’s latest paper charts past trends and projects IQ changes in Denmark as a result of two trends: relaxation of natural selection among the traditional Danes, and an influx of low-IQ immigrants. These two trends together amount to what he terms a “double relaxation of natural selection” (DRNS).

Relying on Richard Lynn’s work Dysgenics: Genetic Deterioration in Modern Populations, the relaxation of internal selection is thought to have begun around 1850 as the fertility of the lower classes exceeded the upper classes because of improvements in hygiene and reduction in diseases. He cites Lynn’s estimate that England lost 6.9 IQ points over 90 years (1920-2010) and estimates that Denmark’s average IQ dropped around 10 points since 1850 due to internal relaxation of natural selection.

However, the main point of the paper is to evaluate the influence of non-Western immigrant population on IQ. Nyborg estimates that by 2072 around 60% of births in Denmark will be to people of non-Western origin, and Danes will be a minority by 2085. This is due to markedly higher birth rates among non-Western immigrants and their descendants  – nearly 4 times greater than the native Danes. Moreover, Nyborg projects that the low IQ (70–85) immigrant share of the population will grow steadily to nearly 60% of the share of all births by 2072.

This implies a drop in IQ for the entire population. Especially chilling is his Figure 5 which shows a dramatically increasing number of Danish citizens in the 70-85 IQ range. This IQ band is projected to be the majority of the population not long after 2075 and to dominate the school system by 2050.

The grim conclusion is that in the period from 1850 to 2072 there will be a total phenotypic decline of 15.39 IQ points. Given a heritability of 0.82 for IQ, this means genotypic damage of 12.62 IQ (i.e., 15.39 X .82) points from the internal relaxation of natural selection. Foreign immigration adds another 6 IQ points, including nearly 5 IQ points in genetic decline . The projection then is for an average population decline of around 21 IQ points and around 17 points in genetic potential for IQ since 1850.

Nyborg concludes:

Why were early dysgenic warnings neglected and the messengers demonized? Because too many leading scientists, politicians and intellectuals (Nyborg, 2003; in press) ignored Darwinian principles and started a historically hitherto unheard of voluntary, humanistic, democratic and financed replacement policy, whereby dwindling genetically weakened (Lynn, Harvey, & Nyborg, 2009) sub-fertile Western European populations will rapidly be replaced by more fertile low-IQ non-European immigrants. … The result is that Western European peoples become minorities in their own ancestral homelands before the end of the 21th century, and other modern societies undergo similar demographic transitions (see also Coleman, 2006, 2010).

Nyborg points out that this decline in IQ will have momentous effects on Western societies, including the decline of democratic governance and lowered economic output. But the Denmark conquered by these non-Western foreigners will be a shadow of its former self:

The damage implies that even if fertile low-IQ non-Western immigrants are the ultimate winners in the third demographic transition [i.e., the double relaxation of natural selection], they will conquer a lesser country. Danish average IQ will, for example, then have approached 90, or perhaps even be close to the projected mean immigrant of IQ 86. An intellectual corrosion this size will have undermined the economic and educational infra-structure of [Denmark], and ultimately made its democracy unsustainable. Another factor is the increased frequency of partly heritable antidemocratic attitudes, authoritarian culture, and dogmatic religious preferences, traits often seen in low-IQ countries.

All this would seriously challenge the characteristic social coherence and solidarity of the Danish tribe. Tragically, the third demographic transition may also simultaneously damage the countries of origin, due to brain drain. In short, [the double relaxation of natural selection] may increasingly doom modern countries, harm developing countries, and has nothing to do with racism or nationalism.

Nyborg cautions that these projections may well be on the conservative side because they appear to underestimate future immigrant fertility because they don’t adequately take into account the youthful age of the immigrants. He also cites recent studies showing that the Lynn-Flynn effect has been reversed in Denmark and Norway. The Lynn-Flynn effect is the phenomenon increasing IQ’s resulting over historical time, resulting presumably from improved environments in the 20th century acting in opposite direction to the dysgenic effects of relaxed internal natural selection.

Four points:

  • These projections do not take account of the well-documented negative effects of multiculturalism: The rise of ethnic conflict, a decline in willingness to contribute to public goods, and increasing political isolation among other negative effects. The future Denmark will not only be less intelligent, less economically productive and less democratic. It will also be a much more hostile place as the formerly homogeneous Denmark (Nyborg repeatedly refers to the ethnic Danes as a “tribe”) come to grips with ethnic- and religious-based conflict. As the Danes become a minority in a society no longer infused with democratic impulses, they are likely to be the targets of the new non-Western ethnic majority that they allowed to develop due to scientific malfeasance and misplaced moral idealism. Unlike the individualistic Danes—a consequence of their heritage as northern Europeans, the non-Western immigrants are far more prone to ethnocentrism and collectivism, with the expectation that they will see Danes as a negatively evaluated outgroup and act accordingly.
  • The decline in the IQ of the ethnic Danes is likely to make them more defenseless against this expected onslaught from non-Western ethnic groups. Nyborg’s results are a wake-up call for the importance of eugenics among Whites in general.
  • In addition to declines in IQ, there is clearly natural selection against the Danish gene pool in general. That is, at the same time that Darwinian natural selection has been relaxed for IQ, immigration (especially non-Western immigration) has resulted in intense natural selection against Danes as an ethnic group, with the result that in the long run they will be displaced entirely. That is, if we continue these population projections well beyond 2072 when ethnic Danish births are projected to be 33% of the total births in Denmark, the births to ethnic Danes will become a vanishingly small percentage of the total births and there will be selection against genetic combinations unique to Northern Europe. For example, the genes underlying the Nordic appearance of people like Nyborg would become a less and less common. This is Darwinian selection with a vengeance.
  • In attempting to account for what Nyborg labels the “unheard of voluntary, humanistic, democratic … policy” of ethnic displacement, one cannot avoid discussing the erection of what I term the “culture of critique” promoted by Jewish intellectual and political movements beginning early in the 20th century. It should not be surprising that the end result of these movements is the dispossession and displacement of Europeans: These movements are case studies of hostility engendered by ethnic competition, in this case competition between Jews as a hostile elite and the traditional peoples and culture of the West. These movements are a foreboding of the competition and hostility that the future will bring as native Europeans become minorities in the societies they dominated for millennia. A major thrust of these Jewish intellectual movements was the attack on eugenics which dominated intellectual discourse a century ago. As I noted in describing the effects of Franz Boas’s revolution in anthropology,

the entire enterprise [of Boasian anthropology] may thus be characterized as a highly authoritarian political movement centered around a charismatic leader. The results were extraordinarily successful: “The profession as a whole was united within a single national organization of academically oriented anthropologists. By and large, they shared a common understanding of the fundamental significance of the historically conditioned variety of human cultures in the determination of human behavior” (Stocking 1968, 296) [that is, genetic influences were discounted in favor of the view that environment was all-important]. Research on racial differences ceased, and the profession completely excluded eugenicists and racial theorists like Madison Grant and Charles Davenport.

By the mid-1930s the Boasian view of the cultural determination of human behavior had a strong influence on social scientists generally (Stocking 1968, 300). The followers of Boas also eventually became some of the most influential academic supporters of psychoanalysis (Harris 1968, 431). Marvin Harris (1968, 431) notes that psychoanalysis was adopted by the Boasian school because of its utility as a critique of Euro-American culture, and, indeed, as we shall see in later chapters, psychoanalysis is an ideal vehicle of cultural critique [most notably, the Frankfurt School]. (The Culture of Critique, Chapter 2: The Boasian School of Anthropology and the Decline of Darwinism in the Social Sciences, p. 28)

The lesson of Neuköln is, in essence, mirrored around the globe. Neuköln is Paris. Neuköln is Malmö. Neuköln is Oslo. Neuköln is London. Neuköln is Zimbabwe. Neuköln is Los Angeles. Neuköln is any location where we become a minority and forfeit all authority. I attended 12 different public schools between ages 6 and 18 — the last of which was 79% “Hispanic” (though by no means 21% White) — and I witnessed a marked turning of the tide, firsthand, between childhood and early adulthood. All of my closest friends increasingly attended White-minority public schools as well, and without exception, irrespective of whatever geographic distance lay between us, we arrived at parallel perspectives over the years. The pattern plays out in virtually every major city where non-Europeans establish numerical significance. We are disrespected, harassed, and violently shoved to the margin whenever and wherever foreigners amass presence and think they have gained the upper hand. Those in denial invariably tend to be those who can afford to mask the reality or live well above it. They’re the first to cry “racist!” when it might earn them a few p.c. points, yet generally the last to have ever lived or worked side by side for any extended period with those they so detachedly romanticize as “equals“. Of course, from such a distance, everyone must appear indistinguishable. When will “our representatives” learn what is so painfully obvious to the rest of us here? They do not represent or serve our interests. This situation is simply unsustainable. Every single country which has taken on this burden is sinking fast. When will someone with a resonant voice and mainstream connections state the obvious on this matter and help to initiate a sea-change? Who gains by shying away or turning a blind eye to these problems? How long can prosperity stabilize the ivory towers of reckless legislators around the globe? Those in positions of authority and influence import this wretched refuse, and when their terms end, they merely pass it on to the next generation. As numbers continue to multiply and we lose more of our rights and more of our living-space, all of the more moderate solutions are dashed, one by one. Who can fail to see where such foolhardy policies have lead us? And once an understanding is reached, who in their right mind could deliberately maintain such a course? The floodgates are simply swung open, as if there were supposed to be no tomorrow, and as if no one would be left to notice or care, anyhow. We’re told that it is “progressive” to welcome this rising tide, and that it is even righteous and noble to sink and drown. Sheer madness and death worship! These hordes are “asylum seekers”? Where is the gratitude? And “asylum” from whom, exactly? They’ve reduced their host-nations to asylums. Are they not, after all, fleeing the very conditions which they themselves produced (either through action or inaction)? Would their people ever accord us such hospitality, were the tables ever turned? This answers itself. Their perception of “White privilege” countermands any will to assist us when the going gets rough, anyhow. And the reason third-worlders seek a handout from the West in the first place is because we know how to manage our affairs better than most. Generation after generation of selfless labor has yielded the stability which we have come to enjoy — yet today, we invite plunder. We import its assurance. Look how our generosity is repaid, through and through! With outright robbery, treachery, and savagery. Misdirected altruism seeds destruction. We have been forced to welcome a stranger into our home as pitiful guest, yet once this cunning guest thinks he has the upper hand, we’ve found ourselves reduced to the role of lowliest servant. And as the roles rapidly shift from masters of our domain to slaves in the cellar, the majority pretend it simply isn’t happening. They continue on, ignorant and indifferent. They surrender their ground. They “turn the other cheek.” They let fall the reins. They even offer their new masters — that rabble who arrived in rags, palms extended, only yesterday! — more than they ever had to spare, as if this gesture would somehow grant them leniency in the days to come. Generosity to thieves and thugs! Who ever heard of such lunacy?! And anyone who stands up for him or herself today is ostracized as an unpardonable “racist!” — as if there were no greater “offense” conceivable for expressing or exercising anything even approaching the most basic level of vital self-interest. If it is now punishable to act in accordance with the security, survival, and advancement of our people — particularly at a point in history when literally everyone else is fanatically encouraged to pursue such a course — then let us take pride in our “offense”. Let us do it best. And let no title, no matter how unflattering, cause us to shrink in any way from our responsibility. The lesson of Neuköln is this: Neuköln is every White city that falls. Defend your heritage and stand your ground. One by one, day by day, our efforts will restore the glory of our inheritance. -W.

Jews Play a “Leading Role” in Promoting Multiculturalism in Europe
by Kevin MacDonald
Source: The Occidental Observer

In this video, Barbara Lerner Spectre, who runs a government-funded Jewish study group in Sweden, makes the following remarkable statement—remarkable because she does not attribute anti-Jewish attitudes to irrational prejudices or even Muslims who hate Israel. Instead she says that it’s because of the “leading role” played by Jews in the movement toward multiculturalism:

I think there is a resurgence of anti-Semitism because at this point in time Europe has not yet learned how to be multicultural. And I think we are going to be part of the throes of that transformation, which must take place. Europe is not going to be the monolithic societies they once were in the last century. Jews are going to be at the centre of that. It’s a huge transformation for Europe to make. They are now going into a multicultural mode and Jews will be resented because of our leading role. But without that leading role and without that transformation, Europe will not survive.

Her comment is an example of the age-old Jewish self-concept of a “Light Unto the Nations”: Jews saving Europe by leading it to multiculturalism. One wonders why she thinks Europe could not survive as a set of monocultural societies. Israel and many other societies function quite well with a recognized dominant culture and people and, as repeatedly emphasized here, multicultural societies have a hosts of costs and no visible benefits. The better question, of course, is how Europe can survive multiculturalism. By definition, it can’t.

The interview is part of a longer set of interviews available HERE.
