Everyone Deserves A Place In The World
The website 23&Me ran a full page ad in the Wall Street Journal today. (6/20/17) titled Everyone Deserves A Place In The World.
The ad posits this possible fact:Over 65 million. That is the amount of people who have been forced from their homes worldwide. Continuing conflicts and political instability…continue to displace more and more people each day.
I’m sure the above is trueish. The implication is that someone, obviously in more stable areas, should take them in because,
…we still have a tendency to focus on differences when we talk about humanity
I’m not sure that the conclusion drawn from the premise follows. This is known as fuzzy thinking.
We see otherness when we should see kinship.
We see “them” not “us”.
But on a genetic level, human beings are 99.5% identical.
This is pure scientific fact.
I don’t know how pure that science is or even if it’s a fact, but I do know this: I can’t run as fast as Usain Bolt. Something tells me that there’s more than .5% difference between us.
The ad goes on to implicitly call for the more politically stable US and Europe to take in all 65 million. There is a basis to compare the facts of taking in just a few million to taking in 65 million. I’m not just talking the logistics.
Europe, Canada and the US have taken in several million Moslem displaced human beings who according to 23&Me are nearly exactly like us, but do they think the same. Only .5% difference but we are all 100% human beings.
Just a few million displaced persons have created constant turmoil in the once stable European countries of Sweden, Germany, England France and Italy. Our fellow human beings have colonized cities and large areas from which they exclude “us”. These areas are called no go zones for “us”.
Our fellow human beings (99.5% identical) have murdered innumerable “usses” in terrorist attacks, they have raped countless women and blamed the rape on them because they were inappropriately dressed. In other words they wore European clothes rather than Moslem clothes. That’s all it took to justify rape in Moslem minds. (99.5%) They have bullied thousands of men who are forbidden defend themselves lest they be jailed as Islamophobes.
Yes, 23&Me they share 99.5% DNA but are they 100% grateful human beings? Did I mention that among their crimes they coerced thousands of underage English girls into prostitution? Does that affect you at all?
Are there 65 million displaced persons in the world? Are you aware, 23%Me, that in a couple decades, by 2050, when the world population increases by a billion or so that there may be over 200 million or more displaced persons?
I don’t think your heart will be big enough to contain them.
Thanks for the lovely sentiments.
