The 10 Happiest Countries on Earth

Amy Capetta, Yahoo! Health, April 24, 2015

{snip}

The results of this year’s World Happiness Report are in–and Switzerland scored the top spot in the ranking. The report is based on data from 158 countries with regard to six factors: GDP per capita, absence of corruption, generosity, social support, freedom, and healthy life expectancy. The report was released by the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network.

The 10 happiest countries were found mostly in Europe:

  1. Switzerland
  2. Iceland
  3. Denmark
  4. Norway
  5. Canada
  6. Finland
  7. The Netherlands
  8. Sweden
  9. New Zealand
  10. Australia

{snip}

Similar to the previous reports, the happiness factor was judged on a scale from 0 to 10, where the average global number totaled 5.1. Switzerland, for instance, had a number of 7.587, while the U.S.–which came in at No. 15 in the ranking–had a 7.119. (The U.S. ranked 11th in 2012.)

Out of all the countries included in the ranking, Togo came in last. The bottom 10 countries in the ranking are:

  1. Togo (Ranked last)
  2. Burundi
  3. Syria
  4. Benin
  5. Rwanda
  6. Afghanistan
  7. Burkina Faso
  8. Ivory Coast
  9. Guinea
  10. Chad

The authors of the report noted that a few common sources of true contentment among the happiest countries were the ability to trust those in your neighborhood, as well as those in a government position. Another marker: being surrounded by people who show empathy for others (which can be shown by random acts of kindness, such as volunteering in a local charity or returning a lost wallet).

    Poor old “Eng-land”!

    • George Moriarty

      I thought poor old Blighty should be really be rejoicing in multiculturalism by now!

      • Albert

        Too much diversity. Won’t be long before the bobbies are packing hand-guns, if they aren’t already.

        • David Ashton

          Some do. If they shoot a person of color, a riot is likely as in the USA.

          • Phoenixian Westernia

            London Lootfest of 2011.

          • David Ashton

            Robbery (bookshops untouched). And massive arson – the fellow-musician friend of a nephew’s wife had her home burned out, her music and instruments destroyed, along with her cat.

      • David Ashton

        Blighted.

      • The Worlds Scapegoat

        They won two world wars, plus endless other wars for the queen.

        Those inbred clowns have no one but themselves to blame.

      • ebonystone

        Yeah, they can get a good tandoori chicken, and in return their 13 y.o. daughter gets raped by a dozen Moslem immigrants and the police refuse to do anything about it. Must be awfully darn good chicken to consider that an even trade.

    • Bossman

      I spent time in England and was very happy to get back to the USA. The British try to do best with what they’ve got. My problem with the country: Food is very bland, most British women look pale, sickly and shapeless. The hookers are all hideous, tons of so-called Arabs are hanging around Earls Court in London, when you do step into a pub, no Arabs are to be seen and no women are to be seen either, just tons of young white males and many look gay. The weather is always cool and cloudy. The nice things: The museums and art galleries are free. The pastries are tasty.

      • Whitetrashgang

        Maybe if the hookers were free you would go back?

        • Bossman

          No! Not even if you paid me I just couldn’t do it with any of them.

          • stedman holder

            But as a Mexican you have no problem with doing it 13 years olds just like your brothers.

      • Exuberant Auditor

        Upvoted your comment because it cracked a smile in me.

        I guess some things can just be appreciated by whites.

        • Rob

          So Bossman is a non white??

          • Exuberant Auditor

            He’s Hispanic, probably a mestizo.

          • Rob

            Or from his name someone we cannot mention.

          • Exuberant Auditor

            Possible. But other than being pro-Hispanic, he tends to be anti-African and Muslim immigration.

            He just has a thing for curvy Latin women, and can’t seem to appreciate white skin, much less Asians.

          • Rob

            Hmm, never noticed that.

          • listenupbub

            He hates Asians for some reason. He thinks they are out to get us.

          • It’s part of one of the sinister Dr. Fu Manchu’s plots to make us all look alike… the way typical Greaseritos do.

      • Rob

        I went to the UK and I saw some drop dead gorgeous English chicks at a pub. Still think of them to this day.

        • David Ashton

          Depends where you go – West London, Brighton, Norwich, better than Derby, Brixton or Leyton.

      • Exuberant Auditor

        “The hookers are all hideous.”

        You seem to have approached a lot.

        Come here to my home state of Nevada, I’ll take you where I took my kid brother for his 18th birthday — you’ll find many Latin specimens to your liking. But I won’t be paying.

        • Irish

          Careful now. That kinda loose talk cost Clayton Williams the Governorship of Texas..

          • Exuberant Auditor

            Well, I’m not running for governor.

          • Irish

            He was a hoot..A genuine West Texas Cowboy. As I recall he was quite literally sitting around a campfire drinking a few beers, when the embedded reporter casually asked him about dating when he was young..And he responded with something along the lines of.”Well this was the 1950’s, so of course our girls didn’t do any of that. So we’d go over to Boys town for some fun”..Killed him.

        • The Spider

          How’s the beer in Nebraska?

          • Exuberant Auditor

            Don’t know, never been there. But here in Nevada, the pale ale is delightful.

      • David Ashton

        Your kind regards are reciprocated.

      • Ella

        I heard the British males do stag parties like in Poland and Czech over the weekends. The locals do not like it as it affects their tourist trade.

      • Phoenixian Westernia

        > “I spent time in England and was very happy to get back to the USA.”
        Last Easter, I went to Jew York and was very happy to get back to Canada.

      • ebonystone

        Not every sight is free. When I was there a couple of year ago, Westminster Abbey charged L18 (~$27) admission, and York Minster L9 (~$14).

      • The Spider

        But how was the beer?

    • They are not on the list? Gee. And neither is the United States? Well, it is obvious why: We need to increase cultural diversity! Let’s see, we can make our countries happier by adding more people from the countries that were in the 10 most unhappy list. Does that make sense? Oh, I forgot; you are not liberals.

    • Irish

      Very hard times indeed..

      • David Ashton

        Dublin’s fair city has embarked on the same downward path.

        • Irish

          I wish it were just Dublin.. As loads of my countrymen (As the son of a Derryman I’m a dual citizen) Go straight from University to Shannon’s airport to find a decent living abroad , The remaining Irish are subsidizing sub-Sahara Africans, but yet can not employ their own children..The politicians throughout Europe are to blame. Hubris in the extreme..Disgusted

  • Dave West

    It must be due to lack of guns and socialized medicine! What else could it possible be?

    • Mack0

      I WONDER!

    • Jason Lewis

      Exactly what the left will say.

      • Phoenixian Westernia

        Leftardism in 2020: “The rejection of anal submission to black cocks is a clear sign that racism is still alive. We need more progress!”

  • Susannah

    I’m sure the fact that they’re all Northern European, or have a large Northern European population, is merely incidental. Nothing to do with genetically based cultural tendencies or anything crazy like that.

    Let’s see where they rank in another few decades after they’ve been further “enriched.”

    • They are mainly WHITE, ANGLO SAXON (there’s a phrase you don’t hear anymore), and mostly NORDIC. They are full of the WHITEST WHITES! What could be more obvious? And, btw, most were never colonial powers. Nope, that ol’ “colonialism” argument won’t work.

      • listenupbub

        Yes, Hitler is laughing in Hell right now.

        • Northern American-Nationalist

          God must be a Jew then.

          • Phoenixian Westernia

            Oy Vey, Jehovah knows!

      • George Moriarty

        Wow! I thought you were going to say WASP, a term coined back in the 70s to describe the most hated species on the planet, especially the male variety. Does anyone know who first invented the term? Probably a black feminist with a cushy job at the UN.
        Strange thing is that these WASP countries are all quite happy, including Oz & NZ.

  • MekongDelta69

    You mean DIE-Troit isn’t in the Top Ten?!?

    Oh wait…

  • JackKrak

    Iceland??? Denmark???

    This study is obviously deeply flawed – don’t they know that true happiness comes from living close to illiterate Guatemalan peasants, Zulu tribesmen and various nut cases from the more camel-intensive parts of the world!!!!

    • Bossman

      I really don’t know how correct you’re about that. A few years ago Costa Rica was listed as a very happy country and they live next door to illiterate Guatemalan peasants. Now lets talk about happy women: Brazil has the most happy women and the most miserable and unhappy women are to be found in Islamic countries. I see that Denmark is listed in the top three of happy countries. In that country, prostitution, pornography and drugs are all legal.

      • George Moriarty

        Australia made onto the list but I can confirm also that Muslims, both male and female appear to be the most miserable residents of this nation. I will not call them members of our society as they are not and never will be.
        Are you certain that drugs are legal in Denmark? I know that Denmark produced some of the worlds most vile and legal porn, I can’t see how that improved happiness. Prostitution happens everywhere, but it probably produces more misery than happiness.

        • Bossman

          I’m not sure what is happening there now but it used to be like the Netherlands where all those things are tolerated.

        • Muslims aren’t part of any non-Muslim society.

      • Hey, “Boss”, in the first place, Costa Rica is the WHITEST country in Central America. It has very few blacks, Amerindians, mestizos, or mulattoes. Although its “Whites” are not North European, it actually has a higher percentage of Caucasoid people than the United States. Second, yeah Denmark has legalized prostitution. So what? The people are still happy, aren’t they? They are White and happily living around fellow Whites. What’s wrong with that? Obviously you have a problem with that.

        • It’s really valuable and enlightening to have these facts, and thanks. Toward the end of your comment, there is hostility, which is at best a different kind of fact; it is a factual expression of an emotion. Nothing wrong with that, as long as people realize this is a different kind of fact.

      • listenupbub

        So are you into the PUA scene? You talk about British women being crappy and the virtues of prostitution…sounds like “red pill” stuff to me.

        • Didn’t we just have a thread about how the red pill guys are often greasy non-whites hoping for a formula to gain sexual access to white women? Good catch.

  • Luca

    How can those countries be so happy when they lack hordes of third-world, low IQ, violent, ignorant, diversity types?

    • Gee, I don’t know. Hmmm….give me time to figure that out.

  • AmericanRemnant

    They don’t know the true meaning of happiness unless they’ve been culturally enriched, like oh Baltimore or Detroit or Chicago or………

    • I was born in Chicago, and have experiences with that city. The city is segregated. Not de-jure, of course, but the population has naturally decided to segregate themselves. Whites in the North, the business district in the centre, Hispanics out west, and Africans in the South. Can you guess which district was the most prosperous, despite the Democratic city council throwing loads of state funds at the South Side? That’s right, the white North.

      Now, I live in Phoenix. This city is segregated as well, with Hispanics in the poorer, more urban neighborhoods, asians in parts of Gilbert and Chandler, and whites like myself in the North portion of the city.

      • BlueSonicStreak

        This is interesting. I was recently arguing with a guy who says he lives in Chicago. He insisted that white nationalists all must be sad loser rednecks who have NO exposure to blacks and Hispanics and form racist opinions in the absence of contact with blacks. He told me that he lives in the “heart” of Chicago, surrounded by a mixture of blacks and Hispanics that are all VERY nice people (just like whites!) that he gets along with great.

        Not being American (let alone having visited Chicago), I had no way to verify or challenge what he said. But I wondered, what are the chances that he lives in a whiter area of the city with a bit of “diversity” versus a predominantly black area?

        What would you say?

  • DaveMed

    The fact that they’re happy does not bode well.

    Those countries are all turning into multicultural cesspools, and it would be more heartening if their native citizens were upset about the situation.

  • Ron Cheaters

    The only reason Canada is going up on that list is because our government is pretending to try to end certain immigration programs and back-doors. It isn’t much of an effort, but we’ll take it.

    • Steve_in_Vermont

      We live next to the Canadian Border and have visited Ontario and the Atlantic Provinces many times (I won’t mention Montreal or Quebec Province). We found the people friendly and welcoming. If we had to live in another country Canada would be our first choice, hands down. We have also visited our capital (Washington) and yours (Ottawa). Like night and day. We’re returning to Ottawa this summer. Our capital?……once is enough.

      • Ron Cheaters

        The Grand Canyon is on my bucket list.
        I’m glad Mestizo’s are afraid of the cold.

        • Steve_in_Vermont

          Take the mule trip down the south rim. It’s a ride you’ll never forget.

          • John Smith

            I hear the North Rim is a relatively undiscovered jewel.

    • Canadian Friend

      Our government did cut the budget for the CBC and that in itself is enough for me to love that conservative government!

  • JohnEngelman

    At least six of these countries have Social Democratic economies. Social Democracy is the closest approximation to democratic socialism.

    • listenupbub

      I’m not a huge hater of social democracy if the people are racially and somewhat ideologically unified. Otherwise, I think it goes against our nature, and rubs me the wrong way to see our money being messed around with by other tribes. It is especially troubling if our money is being used to promote the propagation of other tribes in our homeland.

      • JohnEngelman

        Third world people’s frequently game the system. When the War on Poverty made welfare benefits more generous and easier to qualify for millions of poor blacks quit low income jobs and went on welfare. Whites are less likely to behave that way.

        • Canadian Friend

          I often disagree but on this one you are right.

  • USofAntiWhite

    Don’t worry top ten, diversity is on it’s way. I am sure these lists are compiled simply to find the best targets for immigration and multicultism. Essentially this is an anti-White study, big surprise.

      • dd121

        I live in a white, segregated neighborhood and I’m completely happy too.

        • Whitetrashgang

          Yes you are.

        • Jason Lewis

          Nice going. HUD monitors this site. Your neighborhood has been targeted. 🙂

          • dd121

            They don’t section 8 the houses in my neighborhood.

          • Ella

            HUD houses can go up to 250K now so maybe, I can qualify and upgrade at govt. expense, LOL.

        • Canadian Friend

          I live in a small town less than a half hour drive from Montreal city and here there is less than one percent colored people: crime rates are low, we can walk at night and feel safe, streets are clean and we are happy.

        • Spikeygrrl

          I live in an 80+% Negro neighborhood. It is the safest and most “typically suburban” place I have ever lived.

          Why? Because almost every head-of-household in this development is either a retired or an active-duty career military NCO. San Antonio is known as “Military City USA” for a reason, and this development is soooo quick a commute to ANY of the bases here!

          I’m a city grrl through and through. I’ve also lived in quite a few gentrifying urban neighborhoods over the years, and loved them despite their drawbacks. But even as I screech about no sidewalks and no mass transit (serious issues to a grrl in a wheelchair) I do really appreciate how neighbors here look after each other. Even if it is in a far-flung exurb. (I’m told by Those Who Know that our ‘burb is smack in line of a really aggressive urban expansion. That would be cool.)

          Who’d’a thunk it?

          • dd121

            Sounds like a unique set of circumstances that work for you. My stay in San Antonio was in August and mostly outdoors. Not so fun.

          • Ella

            San Antonio has charm away from the city parts, but it is looking very brown from an outsider perspective much like Austin. I personally would go into the hills with some acreage if I have a fat wallet.

          • Spikeygrrl

            Yeah, August here is hellish.

            Hubby and I thought we knew heat, with or without humidity. Four years in the VERY DRY High Mojave where unbroken weeks and weeks of temps in the 120s was not at all uncommon…and not at all unbearable. Then we were just shy of seven years in San Diego, where summer temps, while objectively high, FEEL so mild that we always kept all our windows open and never once used our heat or a/c.

            Here in south central Texas, however, temps as low as the low 80s can feel unbearable. Since it’s prohibitively expensive to run our central a/c, we’ve installed a room unit in the master suite and retreat there whenever it gets Just Too Sticky outside.

          • dd121

            Colorado feels warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Low humidity and high altitude.

      • In a perfect world. It’s too late for the US, our population will no longer be majority white within the next 20 years. Parts of West Europe still have reasons to be optimistic, if they can stop the re-election of Eurocratic multiculturalist fools.

        • Jason Lewis

          Our downfall may be Europe’s awakening.

        • Ella

          In USA many whites still deny this because they get a so-called discount from high taxes and real-estate. Real-estate prices in Europe are exceptionally high. If you have to rent, plan to pay out rents around $1,500-2,500 p/m in most major cities where you can work and earn a living. I believe in Bergen, the Norwegian govt. subsidizes like 40% of the rents due to crippling monthly rental fees. Norway is on a housing bubble too forcing up rental costs, and paycheck earnings do not cover the costs for a family. Norway’s middle class is being eaten up by inflation.

      • listenupbub

        That’s what I have been saying!

      • dd47

        Whatever encourages the voluntary departure of foreigners from European-civilized lands should always be encouraged. More graphics like this need to be created and spread around on the liberal/immigrant websites as it’s in their interests as much as ours for them to build their own countries rather than being akin to leeches who try to enter our lands as soon as they can.

      • InAFreeCountry

        I would be willing to chip in a few bucks to support this noble cause.

  • listenupbub

    Take “happiness” ratings with a grain of salt. They heavily weight these ratings based on a perception of “goodness” a.k.a. “what should make you happy” as defined by people who are politically progressive. I actually am signed up for all kinds of gallup junk, and I have looked into it a lot.

    • Yeah, them damned Danes, Dutch and Swiss! Huh! They think they are sooo happy! Right. How could they be? They don’t have the benefits of cultural diversity that is now enriching the USA. Naaa, I think Afghanistan or even Zimbabwe is way more happy than these culturally arid places. Yep, I’m with you. (And if you don’t know sarcasm…)

      • John Smith

        White privilege makes you happy.

  • LeonNJ

    With all the chaos going on in Syria, they’re not even ranked the worst. Togo must be a nightmare.

    • Uhhh, yes, Syria has a civil war. It has terrorism, it has political instability and Islamic terrorists. It has extremists that are killing those they don’t like. It has repression, chemical weapons attacks, a genocidal regime, and a radical Islamist group determined to take the nation back to the Middle Ages. the people are homeless. Children are hungry. Refugees are all over. Hospitals have been bombed. Chemical munitions are killing civilians. People are being killed by gas, by burning, all horrible. Yes, it is awful in Syria. People are desperately trying to leave that unfortunate land. they are risking their very lives sailing in leaky boats to flee. Oh, the horror! Yes, horrible, Syria, poor Syria! So sad. So unhappy! But, but, Togo has…more….negroes. Yeah, it is close competition!

    • dd47

      Even a wartorn Arabic country is superior to a stable African one. I can still find Syrians online despite this “Jihad” no doubt affecting some of the infrastructure and therefore their ability to access it. But I’ve never found Togolese on the internet and yet their country is politically stable.

  • Rob

    I had a French classmate a few years ago and he was very adamant that France lets in more Arabs and black into France because they used them for cheap labor after WW-2. This is just like my idiotic UK colleague who is happy that London is a multi-culti city. You cannot fix stupid.

    • Exuberant Auditor

      If these blacks and Arabs weren’t “used” for labor, they would’ve just remained in their home countries unemployed and with even worse conditions of living. If someone works “for cheap”, it means they don’t have any better options.

  • Easyrhino

    One other factor that stands out, in addition to the obvious, is that none of these countries feel it’s the responsibility of their citizens to fund the policing of planet Earth unlike the corrupt lunatics that run our federal government.

    Without the crackpot ideology that says the USA needs to intervene anywhere someone fires a gun, and support 250,000 US servicemen/women overseas we’d have a lot more money to spend on making the USA “happier”.

    • Exuberant Auditor

      True. Many of these countries have been isolationist and pacifist for a while, but that’s only because someone else shouldered the responsibility of being the world’s policeman.

    • It is not so much that we are policing the world, more that we are not policing our own border.

    • John Smith

      We’d have to cut our military if we minded our own business and that means fewer contractors handing out money to politicians and bureaucrats from what they scammed from taxpayers with the help of the latter.

  • “Burkina Faso”? That is a country? It sounds like something you might catch traveling to one of the other countries on that list!

    • John Smith

      Used to be “Upper Volta,” but I’m sure that just sounded “too white.” It’s the negro equivalent of naming a country “Shaniqua,” just like Zimbabwe did when they dropped “Rhodesia.”

      • David Ashton

        Like renaming Britain “Stonehenge”.

        • John Smith

          At least it was an accomplishment by the natives. I think “Airstrip One” works better.

          • David Ashton

            Yes indeed, especially after the revelation that Ed Miliband favors military intervention in the Mid-East.

    • InAFreeCountry

      It gives me the mental image of a fat, burqa-wearing Arab woman.

    • David Ashton

      Don’t forget the “Democratic Republic” of Congo.

  • withcaution

    Total bullshit and wishful thinking. Based on everything I’ve read, Africa has the lowest suicide rates and the Asian Rim the highest. ever hear the phrase “as happy as a pig in slop”?

    The list of nations as “happiest” is in reality a list of highest functioning nations. Getting your pizza hot, taste and on time doesn’t guarantee happiness, it just seems like it should.

  • Jason Lewis

    I remember when Sweden was ranked #1 every year. It’s been sliding. Now down to #8. Wonder why?

    • TrueNorthFree

      White Swedes are being ethnically cleansed in their own country due to insanely high levels of Muslim immigration. They are warmly welcoming millions of invaders who hate everything about Western civilization.
      Sweden is also now the rape capital of Europe apparently, but of course, as we have seen at Rotherham in England, male Muslim immigrants often “enrich local white female populations” with their own special diverse multiculturalism.

      • Spikeygrrl

        Let’s also not forget the corrosive effects of a culture which on the one hand attaches no shame to heterosexual couples living AND HAVING CHILDREN TOGETHER without benefit of marriage, and on the other hand encourages Homosexual Mirage.

        In my 20s and 30s I was considered a romantic/sexual pioneer. What I did then is chuckled at today as “common as dirt.” People born in the Internet Age will never understand how — 40+ years right on back — people from “flyover country” had to rip up their entire lives and move to certain “magnet cities” where we could pursue our peculiarities in peace. But even back then when I was still a spring chicken, the “deviant” culture I became a part of supported the sane order of things: love, marriage (heterosexual, is there any other kind?), property, children. If you never managed #1 and #2, you were in no way qualified to shoot for #3 and #4.

        I think it all kinda sunk in when a couple, who did frequent business with the firm my ex and I created, finally got married. They’d spent almost ten years “engaged,” had a business together, had JUST bought a house together, and had a toddler and another child on the way together. So NOW you decide to get married??!!

        Homosexual Mirage is deadly damaging…but across the board so are these torturous twists on heterosexual coupling and procreation. IMO, Humankind lost its way when the Industrial Revolution repudiated the extended family in favor of the “nuclear” family….but don’t get me started on that or I’ll type all night.

  • Ultimate187

    All of the populations of the top 10 combined doesn’t even equal half of the United States. They are all small, developed nations.

      And still mostly white. Meanwhile, black and/or muslim countries are at the other end of the spectrum.

    I heard Swedes were miserable because of what is going on.

  • Irish

    As I understand it diversity even harms cohesion among fellow White folk. Which makes perfect sense as one can nevrer be sure whether or not your speaking to a another enlightened kinsmen.

      This is true and, I think, easily observable to anyone. I think it comes under the qualifier that diversity damages social trust.

    I question Sweden unless you are in the sticks or live in a small secluded town like America. Maybe, they polled Malmo and immigrants.

  • Hank Richter

    Hate to be a bummer here, but are any of those countries really “European” anymore, if anything this is something the left could used to say “see, the most diverse countries are the happiest”. Canada, Sweden – left wing as hell.

    Compared to the fact that Canada is in the top 10, our politicians are sure as corrupt as the American politicians when it comes to diversity and mass immigration. I hope Stephen Harper will not win the elections again, because it was his party who increased the intake of immigrants.

  • Light from the East

    The report is based on data from 158 countries with regard to six
    factors: GDP per capita, absence of corruption, generosity, social
    support, freedom, and healthy life expectancy.

    All of the above factors are from Western standard. If you apply those to a bunch of African and Islamic countries, none of them is expected to be “happy”. It is a solid proof that Africans and Muslims are deeply not compatible to Western society.

    By the way, if you remember the “feel-good” gene of Africans, how do we know whether they are happy or not since we are not Africans. When Africans are exposed to the civilization of other cultures around the world and they can’t match the achievement of others, that is the time when they feel unhappy due to their inability to build civilization. Thus all Africans should stay where they are originally from and everyone will be happy. Or Africans just disappear from Earth forever so most of the “unhappiness” is gone as well.

    The report was released by the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network.

    The problem is I found some happiest countries in the top 10 cannot have sustainable development in the near future due to abnormal political atmosphere. Ironic, isn’t it?

  • The Worlds Scapegoat

    “The 10 Happiest Countries on Earth”

    Well we know who Israel will attack next with third world immigrants

    Speaking of Israel, why aren’t they on the list? Aren’t they getting enough free handouts from White Countries? Maybe they haven’t killed enough Palestinian 5 year old girls.

    It’s hard to believe that there are really many Danes, Norwegians. Canadians, Dutch, or Swedes that are presently pleased with their countries. Thirty of forty years ago, maybe. But now, with the Moslem invasion in full swing there can’t be too many natives that are happy.

  • The Spider

    Pity the poor Togo-ese. There are 6.7 million unhappy people there. That’s a whole lot of unhappiness.

    I suggest you run .. dont walk! … to E. Michael Jones’ Slaughter of the Cities. You may not agree with the whole thesis but you will find it very interesting. It looks at the population phenomena of the 50s, 60s via in depth study of Detroit, Chicago, Philly, Boston …

      Thanks for the tip. I long have thought that the move to the suburbs was the product of a cultural sea change not entirely motivated by racial issues and conditions. The part about the neighborhoods being depopulated of young families prior to beginning of racial change was something I found out about only recently.

      None of the five public library systems I have access to, King County, Snohomish County, Seattle, Tacoma and Pierce County in Washington have the book available. Purchase price is in the $20s. Found out about the book though. Yes, a provocative thesis. Perhaps there was design behind what happened in that case. That is was deliberate policy on that scale never occurred to me, although some of the building of the suburbs had to have enabled by the federal government. I understood , and I was very young at the time, that decentralization was policy of the Eisenhower administration. The idea was that the dispersal of population and infrastructure would make us better able to survive a nuclear attack. And maybe a less inviting target.
