From Foreign Policy:

The End of an Era … for White Males

As demographics change, so does the definition of privilege.

BY DAVID ROTHKOPF

JANUARY 25, 2016

White men have had a great run. From the rise of the Greeks to the birth of Western-based global empires, they have controlled much of the world or sought to: So much of history is a consequence of decisions made by—and at the behest of—the white guys in charge.

Several factors are contributing to making this historic moment a watershed in global history. First, there is the rise of the emerging world, notably the economies and societies of Asia. While the planet has always been home to great nonwhite civilizations, such societies have ebbed and flowed in relative importance. Today, it is clear that these emerging societies, namely China and India, are on the rise. So too—thanks to economic and political reforms, technological and scientific progress, and the advent of the connected world—are other great and rich cultures from the Middle East to Africa.

Granted, millions of Middle Easterners and Africans are trying to paddle away from their great and rich cultures in life rafts so they can live in the realm of White Male Privilege, but they’re still great and rich cultures …

In addition, millennia of repression of women’s rights are coming to an end. Not fast enough. And not everywhere. But in much of the Western world, once male-dominated domains are now populated by more women than ever before, and this trend shows no signs of reversing—thankfully.

Except in neighborhoods in Europe where all those refugees from the great and rich cultures are moving in …

Not only that, but around the world women are empowering other females, including girls, to lead in technological fields in the Digital Age.

White men in technological fields, of course, haven’t done anything to empower girls …

Quite simply: It now seems to be common sense that no society can thrive if it fails to tap the intellectual, economic, creative, and spiritual resources of its entire population.

It’s common sense everywhere, except in non-White Male Privilege societies, but who is counting …

Finally, thanks to the mobility revolution of the past century, flows of refugees and migrants of all kinds have shifted the demographics of societies and—protests and unease aside—they have proved essential to fighting the demographic trends, such as aging, that have put many advanced societies at risk.

Everybody knows societies are at risk from their own old people, not from military age young male invaders …

Inequality, injustice, and, frankly, fatigue have led populations to seek other choices. Further, the societies that have given the white man his greatest influence in the world—those of Europe and the United States—are struggling in key respects to maintain their global influence. Economic pressures weigh on them. Political divisions are a drag on their growth and ability to act. As history has illustrated, it’s hard to stay on top for an indefinite period.

The result is that the status quo of the past several millennia is going to undergo a profound change. In Europe alone, the influx of migrants and refugees is already producing irreversible demographic shifts—a great blending of cultures.

But by mid-century in the United States, the former majority population will be a minority: The majority, according to demographers, will be nonwhite. By that time, Europe will include massive populations from Africa and the Middle East, as well as Asia. This is to say that by 2050 white men will be the ones checking the “other” box on census forms.

In fact, it is this idea of “otherness” that is going to undergo the greatest change. A current subject of hot debate, such othering has been used by some as a tool for fear-mongering against migrants, immigrants, and refugees—an approach linked, of course, to nothing but ignorance and intolerance.

Nothing, I tell you, nothing … nothing

(Attacks on America’s first black president had similar origins and took on a similarly ugly tone.) Whether the threat is one associated with Islam or extremism or simply economic competition within a country, the reality is that the expressed fears are way out of proportion with the actual, manifested threats.

A shrink I knew once said that if a reaction is out of proportion with its alleged cause, then there’s a piece of the story that has been omitted. In this case, the politicians in America and Europe who spew nationalist bile and fan the flames of anti-immigrant furor are tapping into a growing if unconscious cultural recognition that time is running out on what has been the world’s most privileged ethnic class.

Of course, human mobility is not something to be fought, but rather something to be embraced. While belonging to a community is wired into our DNA for reasons linked to the survival-based social units of our most ancient ancestors, the story of civilization and progress has been one about the blending and reblending of those units.

There are two key lessons here. The first is that, given the fact that civilization is a safer, happier, healthier, richer, wiser place today than it has ever been, the sharing of ideas and values and cultures, it seems, has actually been for the better. For the United States, this is illustrated in its history: Since the early 19th century, new groups have entered the country and have been resented and resisted—the Irish, Italians, Eastern Europeans, Jews, you name it. Yet over time each group has made huge contributions to the United States, a country that only grew stronger with each wave of new blood and new ideas.

The second key lesson is that there is an alternative to “other” and that is “all.” Rather than focusing on our differences as the smallest and most dangerous of our political leaders have done, the real leaders for this new era will distinguish themselves by focusing not just on the social diversity that makes great nations, but on the truth and wondrous benefits of the diversity that actually lives within us all.

As the nationalists, white supremacists, and idiot hordes who follow them have sown seeds of division in the wake of new human flows across borders, the tragic irony has been that they, in fact, have ended up embracing precisely the same kind of intolerance that is the stock in trade of their avowed enemies.

What we need instead are those who will stand up and say, “No. You have it wrong. Diversity is not the threat. It is the answer.” That is, in fact, what has made America and every diverse society great. To be sure, we should not—not for one minute—lament the passing of the white-male era, for there is at least a glimmer of hope that soon to come is the era of “all.”

The Era of “All” will start Real Soon Now, perhaps as President Reagan told the U.N. in 1987, the moment the invading flying saucers begin their war of conquest of us Earthlings …

By the way, who is David Rothkopf?

CEO and Editor
Washington, DC

David J. Rothkopf is CEO and editor of the FP Group, where he oversees all editorial, publishing, events, and other operations of the company, which publishes Foreign Policy magazine. He is also the President and CEO of Garten Rothkopf, an international advisory company specializing in global political risk, energy, resource, technology and emerging markets issues based in Washington, D.C.

David is the author of numerous internationally acclaimed books, including Power, Inc., Superclass, and Running the World. His most recent book, National Insecurity: American Leadership in an Age of Fear, was published in the fall of 2014. He writes a weekly column for foreignpolicy.com, and is a frequent contributor to leading newspapers and magazines, including the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Financial Times, CNN, Newsweek, Time, and many others. He is also the host of The Editor’s Roundtable (The E.R.) podcast, a weekly program that triages the big issues of the day, and has appeared as a TED Talk speaker about how fear drives American politics.

Additionally, David is a visiting scholar at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, chairman of the National Strategic Investment Dialogue and serves or has served as a member of the advisory boards of the Center for Global Development, the Center for the Study of the Presidency, the U.S. Institute of Peace, and the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

Previously David served as CEO of Intellibridge Corporation, Managing Director of Kissinger Associates and as both U.S. Deputy Under Secretary of Commerce for International Trade and as Acting Under Secretary in which capacity he directed the activities of the 2,400 person International Trade Administration during the Clinton Administration. He has taught international affairs at Columbia University’s Graduate School of International and Public Affairs, the Georgetown School of Foreign Service and has lectured at leading universities including Harvard, Yale, Columbia, Princeton, Oxford, Cambridge, Stanford, the National Defense University and the Naval War College.

The Era of White Male Privilege still seems to be going strong in David’s career. Too bad about you younger fellows …

By the way, I wouldn’t completely rule out that this piece by Rothkopf, who after all is editor of a magazine founded by the late Samuel Huntington, is a parody of the conventional wisdom. But how could you tell?

  1. “White men have had a great run. From the rise of the Greeks to the birth of Western-based global empires, they have controlled much of the world…”

    Deliberate deception. White men didn’t “control” merely much of the world, as if they were kids playing with remote control cars. They built/invented/designed much of the world. There’s a difference and it’s all the difference in the world.

    I’d have a less difficult time with his overall premise if he could at least be honest with his wording. This reminds me of the phrase “male-dominated,” which is the feminist way of sidestepping the truth: That it really means “male-created.”

    He who controls words controls thought. Calling people like this on their deliberate sleight-of-hand when it comes to descriptions is important. “Controlled” is not the right word to use and if he didn’t know better then some editor, somewhere, should have piped up.

    The irony, of course, is he gets to communicate this on technology built by white men in a country where the idea of freedom of speech was made into law by white men. And if white men “control” anything, he might look to that to ask why.

    (I’m choosing only to focus on his opening sentence. I know well there are a lot more questionable ideas here.)

  10. It’s hard for even intellectuals like Mr. Rothkopf to remember that historical trends don’t necessarily continue unabated. There are cycles, and pendulum swings.

    And this elides key differences between the US and Western Europe versus previous top dogs:

    Further, the societies that have given the white man his greatest influence in the world—those of Europe and the United States—are struggling in key respects to maintain their global influence. Economic pressures weigh on them. Political divisions are a drag on their growth and ability to act. As history has illustrated, it’s hard to stay on top for an indefinite period.

    History has illustrated that, usually, those on top stay there until someone else knocks them off. E.g., Alexander The Great conquers the Persian Empire. In the case of Europe and the US, there’s no one in the non-western world strong enough to knock them off. The current mass migration into Europe is the result of a population surplus in those countries, which in turn is a result of Western advances in agriculture, medicine, sanitation, etc.

    Fences really aren’t beyond the technology of the West, as the rest of the world may discover soon. The alternative may be the sort of street violence Houellebecq anticipated in Submission.

  11. This narrative that whites have “controlled the world” for millennia needs to be opposed with facts. The global white empires only began around 1450 with the explorations of the Portuguese. Before that whites did not in any sense control Africa or Asia, and of course had no presence (bar a handful of Vikings) in the Americas.

    And of course there were long periods of white contraction. For example, the retreat before the initial waves of Islamic expansion.

  13. I love David Rothkopf’s CV. He’s such an insider that he makes George Bush Sr. look like the Unabomber.

    Totally OT but encouraging news on how you can’t keep a good stale, pale male down:
    Brendan Eich has just kicked off a project to build a new web browser that might totally shake up the world of online advertising and the media. The Brave browser project was launched only about two weeks ago so it’s got a long way to go. Still, it could shake up Google’s revenue model over time. The last paragraph gives the best summary: http://andreasgal.com/2016/01/20/brendan-is-back-to-save-the-web/

  14. If you could go back in time and obliterate a small swath of the inhabitants of the earth’s surface, at around 1600 AD, on a swath from GB, to France, to Germany, to Poland and perhaps also to Moscow, there would be no modern world. Bordering areas included.

    The scientific and the industrial revolutions were centered in those areas. Capitalism was invented there. Every military in the world today looks and acts like the military model invented there.

    Its not a matter of fashion that businessmen everywhere in the world look like Western men in a suit and tie. Or that solders everywhere look more like British turn of the century solders than samurai. Or that researchers look like German university researchers. Most of the great polyphonic music of the world would not exist. The Japanese would have no 9th to determine the playing time of the CD they invented. There might not even be perspective in painting. If you included present day Italy in the swath, perhaps monogamy, a Romain institution adopted by early Christians I am told, would be rare.

    No modern world. A totally different planet if perhaps 20% of the surface area was obliterated by a meter or something in the past.

    I can’t tell you how many senior lawyers who’ve made very distinguished careers but never had to compete against female lawyers have told me how wonderful it is that there are so many women in the law now.

    Not only is this attitude hypocritical, it is fundamentally selfish (as are all anti-traditionalists): It is the equivalent of saying, I was given something wonderful, I was initiated into a learned profession and into the particular customs of my firm or bar or chambers or inn of court, and I took that gift, that inheritance that was handed down to me, and I unalterably changed it and remade it and have given you, my successors and followers, something else, something different, something other.

    As a white male It is hard not to be embarrassed by our actions. You get to the point where you almost want to change your skin color so you can show how much you care about issues of race, how much you care about the overt hatred and vitriolic discrimination of the past and today. Of course, you can’t change your skin color, but you can be an ally to those who are marginalized in our society. You be an ally by working to dismantle the unearned privilege we white guys have enjoyed for so long.

    Me and my partner both teach in public high schools. We teach the atrocities of this country. We encourage interracial dating and try to steer the white girls in our class to date black boys. Being a homosexual I know sort of what it is one to be hated. Hopefully white men will be out of power and the country can move forward.

White Americans should take anti-white distopian prognostications like this as a challenge to organize for their self preservation. There are hundreds of Jewish organizations and dozens of Hispanic and African American groups in the US. There are countless Christian groups.

  39. “Previously David served as CEO of Intellibridge Corporation, Managing Director of Kissinger Associates. . . . ”

    I believe L. Paul Bremmer also served as Managing Director of Kissinger Associates. He also served as Administrator of the Coalition Provisional Authority in Iraq. In that role, Bremmer made two horrendous decisions: (1) he disbanded the Iraqi army and (2) he issued a decree banning all former members of the Baath Party from playing any role in the new Iraqi state. Those decisions were made either because L. Paul Bremmer was incredibly stupid or they were done deliberately in order to sabotage the new Iraq and guarantee that it could not become a functioning country for a long time. Thus, he was either incompetent or corrupt. Hardly a good advertisement for Kissinger Associates.

    Of course, Henry Kissinger himself endorsed the Iraq War of 2003 (unlike his former associate Brent Scowcroft, who came out in strong opposition to the war). In 2011, he acknowledged the war was a mistake, but he blamed his decision to support the war on “bad intelligence.” Now, I didn’t graduate summa cum laude from Harvard like Henry Kissinger and do not consider myself as smart as Henry Kissinger or as knowledgeable about foreign affairs, but I was able to scope out that we were being sold a pig in a poke by reading the NY Times and WS Journal and watching network TV news on NBC, with no access to intelligence reports. If I could have figured it out, I am certain that Kissinger could have figured it out. So, it seems that Henry Kissinger was either incredibly stupid in 2003 or incredibly corrupt.

    Adding all these examples together, one has to conclude that hiring Kissinger Associates would not give you good advice unless you are looking for ways to do harm to the interests of the U.S.

    It strikes me that Minsky, a bald Jewish brainiac nerd, could have found a wife and created a family with her like a regular guy. An equivalent young man now, just starting out in life, would find himself undateable young women’s current standards. He would probably wind up like those 40-year-old male virgins and incels in Silicon Valley.

    The fact that Minsky and other unattractive men in his generation could pair up with wives and father children with them, when similar men can’t seem to cross those barriers now, suggests that feminism has damaged our society in some unanticipated ways.

    “Quite simply: It now seems to be common sense that no society can thrive if it fails to tap the intellectual, economic, creative, and spiritual resources of its entire population.”

    “Finally, thanks to the mobility revolution of the past century, flows of refugees and migrants of all kinds have shifted the demographics of societies and—protests and unease aside—they have proved essential to fighting the demographic trends, such as aging, that have put many advanced societies at risk.”

    So… in order for society to THRIVE, all women along with all men must work, work, and work in the New Economy. But that means fewer women get married and have kids.

    And so they can’t survive as a people…

    And that means the thriving society has to take in tons of migrants from non-thriving societies that are not so economically maximized.

    What does this mean? If ALL societies want to THRIVE, they must become like the West where women would rather work than be mothers.
    But then, ALL societies would begin to age and fail to produce enough kids. Then, all of humanity would die off.

    So, in order for a thriving economy to survive, they must rely on non-thriving societies. In that case, it would be bad if all societies were thriving since they would all face birth dearths and wouldn’t be able to take in surplus people from other nations.

    Btw, Jews keep saying that European nations(and Japan) need to rely on immigrants in order to survive. But survive as what and as whom?
    If Japanese population goes from 100 million to 50 million, it is still Japan. But if Japan fills the lost 50 million with 50 million Hindus or Africans, it is no longer Japan.
    A nation is more than numbers. Japan is not defined by the number of 100 million. Japan is defined by JAPANESE whether they be 1o million, 20 million, 50 million, or 100 million.

    What kind of an idiot defines nationhood by numbers? Suppose a massive earthquake kills half the Japanese. So, if Japan no longer Japan since it no longer has, say, 100 million? Will Japan be Japan once again if brings over 50 million Turks? Hey, it’s Japan again since it’s up to 100 million!!

    What kind of logic is that?

    Now, if the West is facing declining numbers, the obvious solution should be more men should be fathers, and more women should be mothers. White people should have more kids and grow up instead of acting like perpetual kids addicted to videogames or TV shows.

    But Rothkopft says NOOOOOOOO. Why, the economy would fail unless all women worked like ants. It is the only way to THRIVE.
    But choosing to THRIVE, the nation cannot SURVIVE.
    Solution? Bring in tons of people from nations that don’t thrive.

    Isn’t there a midpoint between the Thrive mode and Survive mode?
    According to Rothkopft, apparently not. The West must fully go into thrive mode, and women must work and work and work. If that undermines the survive mode of the people? Bring in tons of people from the Third World and face racial-cultural displacement, but then, don’t worry about such things since a nation should only be defined by numbers(population figures), GDP, and libertarian ‘right’ to consume like a pig.

    By the way, what kind of an idiot believes that bringing in tons of Third Worlders will do wonders for the economy? How many people really think that boatloads of ‘refugees’ from Africa will do wonders for the European economy? How is Sweden faring so far with all those Somali morons?

    Of course, Rothkopf is not an idiot. He is a weasel. The idiots are white people are smart but not smart enough to see through the vile lies of scum like this.
    He just wants to weaken the unity of white European nations.

  83. Whether the threat is one associated with Islam or extremism or simply economic competition within a country, the reality is that the expressed fears are way out of proportion with the actual, manifested threats.

    In other words, a certain level of civil discomfort and small-scale terrorist attacks are to be expected and tolerated as the mohammedan, Asian, and Hispanic populations in formerly White lands increase. The continued deracination of traditionally European countries–including the United States–is much more important, multitudes more even, than the physical safety and security of those country’s present inhabitants.

    A fun exercise:

    (1) Rothkopf lists ethnic groups: “the Irish, Italians, Eastern Europeans, Jews … each group has made huge contributions to the United States”

    (2) Then in his bio he lists the elite institutions he’s affiliated with.

    The fun part: look for a match between lists 1 and 2. Painfully few of his favorite institutions were created by his favorite ethnics. “Huge contributions?” I don’t see it.

    Examples,
    -Foreign Policy: founded by Samuel P. Huntington [English ancestry] while a professor at Harvard [founded by Englishmen]
    -Carnegie Endowment: Scottish-American
    -Columbia University: Englishmen
    -New York Times: British-Americans
    -Princeton University: Scots

    Compared to America’s early British population, no ethnic group (and I include my own) has really built all that much in this country. And Rothkopf tacitly admits this in his own status-obsessed bio.

  91. Minsky married a Jewish female doctor and they had three children.

    No matter how nerdy, religious or observant Jews or those at least involved with Jewish life on a nonreligious level (Minsky was an atheist) seem to have little trouble marrying if they want to do so.

They rid the Aegean Sea of pirates, they had a written language (Linear A, determined to be non-Greek), and had a marvelous art that was like nothing like that the Greeks ultimately produced (and more akin to Picasso and the later Matisse).

    Note: The reason the GOPe is warming to working with Trump is because Trump is not actually opposed to the political program outlined in this Rothkopf article.

    Christianity is not mentioned by Rothkopf. If it were than the modern era Trump would have a beef. But Rothkopf keeps the war strictly against white men. So Trumpism can work within this framework.

    -Trump likes affirmative action. Trump justice dept won’t deviate from Obama’s on the disparity issue.

    -Trump does not equate strong borders with better wages and opportunities for the white working class. He’ll accept white male support in the election but there is no real solidarity with white men as a whole. Trumps wants a strong border to keep the nation as a whole from being “ripped off”.

    There are many other points that back this up but let’s just boil it down to Trump = Putin on the issue of race and identity. Both men want to rule over multiracial societies where there is no genuine concern for whites becoming just another minority voice in a sprawling chaotic empire.

    I don’t understand. Are you saying the senior lawyers are glad they can sleep with lawyers instead of secretaries now (like that judge out in ____ County who divorced his wife and married the law-school grad 30 years his junior? Your comment was really oblique. Regardless, female lawyers are terrible in every way, and you almost never see them if you’re doing anything difficult.

    That may still work for Mormons and Seventh Day Adventists, but I don’t think it does for non-Orthodox Jews. A large percentage of young secular/Reform/Conservative/Reconstructionist Jewish women aren’t interested in marriage. And of the non-Orthodox groups, only Conservative Jews would still show strong preference for marrying other Jews if they did decide to marry. Many Reform rabbis will now perform intermarriages, and secular Jews may not care if a rabbi is involved at all. These are my observations as a never-married non-Orthodox Jewish guy in his late thirties.

    The main point to take home from that mass of Rothkopf verbosity is that after the eclipse of whites in this present era – which is a real phenomenon and not rhetorical bullshit like the the remainder of the article – only one ethny will step up into the dominance vacuum so left, namely the Chinese. The Indians, the Arabs, the Africans – forget them all.
    The point is that the Chinese are strongly ethnocentric – and exceedingly likely to stay that way.

  153. Almost 15% of black mothers in the U.S. in 2014 were foreign-born, so the black population is getting increasingly non-synonymous with descendants of slaves (e.g., the President).

    Indeed. As you have well documented. (Though doubling down by having half American Black children would, in any evolutionary psychologist’s view, make him authentically American Black in spirit if not blood.)

    Perhaps American Blacks alive in 1965 and their descendants, before Teddy K and his backers’ immigration bill, would be a good marker.

    Regarding following ancestry by descent, it would be a trivial practical problem. Given the whole Nazi thing, though, it would suffer great attacks from various elites and their organs.

    The Muzzies segregate, the Mexicans do, same with Blacks. The Muzzies are the worst, the Black sections of our cities are slaughterhouses.

    Diversity has failed in the U.S. the ethnics don’t want any part of it and neither do whitest and what passes civility and peace is the police keeping a lid on things at gun point and running a massive prison population that is unheard of in other countries.

    Not even close to being true. The “equivalent young man” now would be hard to find. Not just because they lack MM’s IQ but that they now have irrational expectations. Every nerd now thinks he’s smarter than he really is and wants women WAY out of their league. Minsky probably settled for an unattractive woman that today even ugly nerds would ignore.

    No because he would settle for a realistic mate. Incels are social cowards who generally fear women and live in a fantasy land.

    They paired up with troll-like boring girls from the neighborhood or average girls they got to know by being somewhat humanoid.

    Re the racists: when you first learn that everything everyone you have ever known, and have believed for yourself, is a lie, a certain anger arises. When you then learn that for every black woman raped by a white man something like 50 white women are raped by blacks, and that prison rape is largely a black-on-white phenomenon, the anger grows.

    There are two key lessons here. The first is that, given the fact that civilization is a safer, happier, healthier, richer, wiser place today than it has ever been, the sharing of ideas and values and cultures, it seems, has actually been for the better. For the United States, this is illustrated in its history: Since the early 19th century, new groups have entered the country and have been resented and resisted—the Irish, Italians, Eastern Europeans, Jews, you name it.

    Because white people do not necessarily, nor should they, the same about race the way he says they must. Blacks, browns, reds, and yellows also feel the same way. What, you think black SJW’s are at the forefront of the minds of, say Lebron and Denzel, or even middle class blacks?

    The Guardian’s public statements about its unexpected and outsize losses — rather sounding as if they had been written as a parody in the British satirical magazine Private Eye — reflect a shell-shocked sense of absolute certainty suddenly confronted by overwhelming evidence to the contrary.

    Rothkopf does seem to possess a “sense of absolute certainty.” And it would take him a few hours’ worth of thought and research to be “confronted by overwhelming evidence to the contrary.”

There are very few exceptions (e.g., Gottfried probably does, though I’ve never asked him). Which is made all the more instructive by the fact that almost all Jews think Jews having what they have in Israel is generally a good thing that should be continued.

    “Quite simply: It now seems to be common sense that no society can thrive if it fails to tap the intellectual, economic, creative, and spiritual resources of its entire population.”

    So Israel is DOOMED. In fact, she must already be dead by now.

    There is no doubt that some of the best minds on our side are Jews. My guess is about 20 percent of American Jews probably side with the majority opinion of this blog. But I have no hard stats to back it up.

    That’s quite a guess, given how the other 70-80% vote Democrat like clockwork.

    The problem is that it seems most, if not all, organized Jewish groups are for open borders and such.

    What a strange coincidence.

    Your argument is NAXALT – ‘Not all X are like that’, for X = Jews. We know.

    If I was more conscientious I could write a book about “HBD” or “right-wing” Jews (and philo-Semites) who revert to exactly leftist type once the subject turns to criticizing Jews, instead of blacks or browns or whatever. Leftists seem more consistent. It’s not easy being less consistent than your typical leftist, it takes careful study.

    Note: The reason the GOPe is warming to working with Trump is because Trump is not actually opposed to the political program outlined in this Rothkopf article.

    How many of the Trump-bashers here are also anonymous nobodies? 95%? Keep in mind this isn’t some leftist-run forum where people have to put up with being banned for having an un-PC opinion. These people choose to remain anonymous, disembodied voices because they prefer it.

    No, he’s only mostly hypocritical. The non-hypocritical position is to ignore the USA, which is the least likely target for someone really interested in advocating Commiekopf’s ostensible values, and to focus in on Israel like a laser.

    Think of someone who supposedly hates Bob and Joe equally. He sees Bob being ganged up on by a scrum of his fellow Bob-haters. They’re really kicking the crap out of Bob. Joe, on the other hand, is sitting off to the side, watching and laughing as Bob’s getting his ass kicked. If our hypothetical someone really hates Bob and Joe equally, he isn’t going to lay a finger on Bob. He’s going to kick Joe’s ass.

    Commiekopf basically keeps kicking Bob, and maybe throws a kick at Joe now and then. Sure, a claim of hating Bob and Joe equally is more plausible coming from him than it would be from the scrum of guys kicking Bob’s ass and totally ignoring Joe, but that doesn’t really qualify him as consistent. More like, less completely inconsistent.

    Much the same behavior can be observed in Tim Wise.

    From the article:

    In Rothkopf’s case, the advocacy was direct. He stood up for Israel against its critics.

    As Rothkopf says to Oren, “you are smarter and more knowledgeable about much of this than I am.”

    David Rothkopf wouldn’t be a CEO if he hadn’t said the right things about Israel.

  202. “the politicians in America and Europe who spew nationalist bile and fan the flames of anti-immigrant furor”

    I’m wondering, what makes one person’s speech attacking immigrants “bile” and another person’s speech “not bile” attacking White Males? I suppose it’s because the latter’s bile is more of a reaction to the former’s and therefore not really bile at all. But what makes White Male nationalist bile “bile” in the first place? He explains why above:

    “…the societies that have given the white man his greatest influence in the world—those of Europe and the United States—are struggling in key respects to maintain their global influence.”

    I see. “Societies”, lurking beneath the very soil of Europe and North America, sort of granted White Men privilege and influence for a time. Why, we know not. Societies, whatever those are, work in mysterious ways. We cannot therefore give an account of White Male Privilege except to say that Societies both giveth and taketh away. White Males are suffering a deserved diminution and so you see are full of bile. That makes them really despicable when you stop and think about it. Any stones thrown at their heads is probably deserved.

    I have worked mostly in Asia for 3+ decades where animosity and gut focus is almost invariably directed at regional an ethnic rivals etc.

    This is not to say Asians do not get a kick out of besting the West when they can; it is just that history here has ancient tectonic plates to shift.

    Joking aside, I think your concern is misplaced. Quoth Rothkopf:

    White men have had a great run. From the rise of the Greeks to the birth of Western-based global empires, they have controlled much of the world or sought to: So much of history is a consequence of decisions made by—and at the behest of—the white guys in charge.

    …the planet has always been home to great nonwhite civilizations…

    So you see it is our opponents who are framing things in terms of “white empires” and “nonwhite civilizations”. How do you propose their narrative be counteracted?

    As the nationalists, white supremacists, and idiot hordes who follow them have sown seeds of division in the wake of new human flows across borders, the tragic irony has been that they, in fact, have ended up embracing precisely the same kind of intolerance that is the stock in trade of their avowed enemies.

  208. I know someone from India who considered himself a white supremacist because he says white people are the only ones to really have created decent countries.

    Mahatma Gandhi was arguably a white supremacist. Gandhi’s rise to fame was in South Africa fighting for rights for wealthy Indians.

    He firmly believed, “that the white race of South Africa should be the predominating race.”

    He had deep contempt for the blacks, which he called Kaffir, as a race, “Kaffirs are as a rule uncivilised – the convicts even more so…. The reader can easily imagine the plight of the poor Indian thrown into such company!”

    He preached, “We believe as much in the purity of races as we think they (the Whites) do… by advocating the purity of all races.”

    Of course, the dominant elites of today paint a completely different picture to suit their goals.

    Exactly right. People with experience on the ground considered the total disbanding of the Iraq government and social structure to have been a huge mistake, resulting in, at the least, the insurgency costing thousands of American lives.

    But, consider this: virtually all the actions of the George W Bush and Obama administrations have had the objective of replacing rather secular governments in the Middle East with an Islamic government. Afghanistan is excluded, of course, as it already had an Islamist government.

When I was married, my wife complained about us not having enough money to buy a house or for her to quit work. We eventually broke up and she went off looking for a better guy. She never found the better guy and ended up on welfare. Meanwhile, as I got older I made more and more money and am now very well off. Even though my ex-wife is no longer married to me, I am still supporting her and a lot of other women like her through my taxes. I may want a super model but if I can’t get one on my own I certainly wouldn’t expect the government to provide me with one.

  218. From that link, Rothkopfs’s words:

    The best protection (as the United States has demonstrated) is to institutionalize the concept of tolerance and diversity and to work tirelessly to ensure that the powerful impulses to segregate and divide are quashed. It is not easy. But it has made the United States the most successful experiment in cultural diversity in history — though only after a series of horrific errors, including slavery and the genocide against Native Americans and the devaluing of the role of women, were ultimately remedied.

  219. Greg Cochran:

    I’m looking at abstracts on Ashkenazi genetics from ASHG 2013 and SMBE 2014 – by the same group, with Shai Carmi as the lead author. They did 128 whole genomes, 50x deep.

    They concluded Ashkenazi Jews were about 50% Middle Eastern and 50% European. In the 2013 abstract, they were pretty specific: they estimated the European ancestry fraction at 55% , plus or minus 2%. ( In our book, we had a crude estimate of about 40% European ancestry.) They estimated the split between Europeans and Middle Easterners at about 9000 BC: which sounds about the right date for the entry of the Sardinian-like farmers. From other data (mtDNA) , and from the fact that you see almost zero WHG or ANE in Ashkenazi autosomal genes, one can conclude that the European admixture was mostly Italian, with some southern French. Very little German or Slavic – by that time serious endogamy had set in..

  227. It’s a racket. They identify as white when it suits them – as in when they’re writing pieces about how “We” whites need to share power and opportunities with other groups who haven’t earned them by objective standards. It’s usually framed as an admission – in other words, the author is admitting on behalf of whites that “we’re all awful and have unearned privileges” and therefore need to accept the aggressions of other groups passively. But when it suits them they consider themselves a “model minority.” Grandpa was excluded from the Country Club (the same one that excluded Catholics) after all. So all of the tacit, off the books networking and chauvinism and favoritism is remedial while in the very next breath they preach the false gospel of diversity, grievance, and affirmative action.

    See an example of the weaselly, unctuous doubletalk and twisted logic:

    This end-part of the documentary is worth considering:

    “… major flaw in the Spartan system. Its pathological elitism… Sparta was running out of Spartans… Spartan numbers were dangerously low. It produced a body bag syndrome.”

    Today’s West is very different from Sparta, of course. Spartan society was very repressive and exclusive. The modern West is libertine and inclusive, especially with open immigration. Also, if only pure or near-pure Spartans could be citizens of Sparta, the modern West is more like the Roman Empire that granted citizenship to lots of different peoples.

    But in a way, there is a common theme between Sparta and the modern West.
    While the official ethos of the West is about equality and the People, the actual socio-economic reality plays out differently. There is a huge discrepancy between the Said and the Done. More than ever, white people are more elitist than ever. And because their standards are so high — like with the high IQ couple in the opening of IDIOCRACY — , they can only accept the best and feel contempt for everything else.

    [MORE]

    (Google uses the Frederick Douglas doodle as ‘virtue signaling’, the equivalent of aristocrats wearing golden crucifix necklaces. It speaks egalitarianism but serves elitism. Indeed, the reason why such elites be so full of put-on compassion for blacks is because they can afford no to live close to them. But those who’ve seen the reality come to know better.)
    Educated whites are all about best jobs, best lifestyles, best schools for their kids. They may want to have kids, but not if the kids will get in the way of their success. And competition is more fierce than ever because of massive immigration. In many top schools, whites are squeezed by Jews, Asians, and affirmative action.
    So, they cannot take it easy at all. When people like Zakaria and Chua berate white folks for not being competitive enough, they leave out the fact that Asian competition has increased the pressure on everyone.

    Also, with generations of Americans who only knew affluence, good isn’t good enough. The greatest generation knew poverty and war, so good was good enough. Boomers were more indulgent, but even they knew something about hardships from listening to their parents. Also, they had an idealistic streak that said life isn’t all about money. But since the rise of Gen X, it’s been money, money, money, status, status, and status. It’s like what they say in RISKY BUSINESS.

    Also, because white folks have no pride left cuz of the cult of ‘white guilt’ and PC, they can only find meaning in status and money; they no longer own the morality and righteousness.
    Also, as racial segregation has come under attack, whites can no longer breathe freely and take for granted the living in safe white communities. They come under threat of integration with the Negroes. So, whites must make more money to ensure that they and their children can afford to live safely away from crime and social pathologies. Even as Libs are ideologically for racial integration, in terms of what they actually DO, they want to out-compete others so that they don’t have to live next to dangerous blacks. Also, having money and power means you can use Section 8 to drive out Negroes or use Stop-and-Frisk to pressure Negroes to behave.

    Also, globalism threatens the middle class and working class. There was a time when white people without too much smarts or credentials could hope to get a decent playing manufacturing job and raise a family. But it is now much more difficult. To be average and normal is to be nowhere today. You have to win and at least be upper middle class. Everything else is nowhere. Since you have to work so hard to make it and rise up, you put family and having children behind. Also, since your children have to do really well to have a good life in the New America, you only want to have kids with high-IQ spouse and send the kid to the best schools. So, you might say all the nice-sounding libby-diddy egalitarian-inclusive stuff, but you cannot tolerate a spouse who is beneath your standards and you cannot feel inclusive about having a kid who is anything less than the best. (Of course, if you’re really well-off like Chelsea Clinton or the Romney’s, you might adopt some African baby as virtue-signaling).

    Also, globalism has boosted radical individualism above all else. While proponents of globalism talk of all of humanity co-mingling and loving one another, the fact is it is difficult to maintain any kind of meaningful community with too much diversity. It’s one thing to be a German who feels part of German community. But if Germany were to fill up with tons of non-Germans and if these newcomers were to be considered ‘Germans’, the meaning of Germanness would go out the window. So, is a working class German supposed to regard marauding gangs of Africans and Muslims as fellow German brethren? Really? How can any German find meaning from German-ness from such lunacy. Some might suggest that Germans should just reject the very idea of Germanness and just see themselves as part of the ‘human race’. But the human races, ethnic groups, religions, and nationalities are too different, varied, and at odds to encourage and sustain any real kind of ‘brotherhood of man’ utopianism.

    As globalism undermines meaningful nationalism, the ONLY game left is ultra-individualism to ensure that ‘me, me, me’ will make it and remain above the fray of increasing problems from diversity. This is what the EU elites are about. They talk about cooperation and diversity, but they are all about ultra-individualism so that they themselves won’t be affected by the global tide. They are perched on their individualist hills of privilege and don’t get swept up like the rest of the population. Globalism turns into ‘every man for himself’.

    The best and most meaningful social unit for modern man is nationalism with strong borders. Over time, people within the borders develop a sense of common identity and unity. They have a balance of individualism and communalism. America used to be like this. Though globalists offer the promise that open borders will lead to more communalism and cooperation, the result is the very opposite. It is asking too much for a people of a nation to identify with ALL THE WORLD. For one thing, most peoples around the world look different, think different, have different interests, different histories, different narratives, different taboos, etc. Despite all the rhetoric, there is no unity but just a lot of division and distrust. In the current West, Nationalist communalism has been dealt a fatal blow, and Globalist communalism(“It takes a Village” nonsense) remains forever out of reach and impossible. So, what is the only game left? Ultra-individualism to make it to dry land while the rest of the world comes under the globalist deluge. It’s like the privileged couple in A.I.: ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE.

    I would worry less about icebergs melting and seas rising than about borders melting and demographic third world tides rising and crashing into richer nations. The tsunami of the black sea from Africa and brown sea from India especially seem daunting, especially when the Indian government says it plans to export 300 million dotkins to other nations!!!
    It’s like someone refusing to fix the broken plumbing and demanding that OTHER apartments take the water to relieve the room with the broken pipe.

    Of course, Jews understand that nationalism and ethnicity are the best foundation for communal feeling and cooperation. It seems to work for Israel. Also, Jewish birthrates seem to be stable in Israel because there is a sense of common Jewish identity and purpose. Rich Jews tell middle Jews and poor Jews that they care about them and that they are all in it together. Rich Jews offer incentives for middle Jews to have kids and raise families. And even if middle Jews and poor Jews don’t have much, they have pride and meaning in being part of a Jewish nation who are taken care of and led by Jewish elites who care about Jewishness. It is not about ‘every Jew for himself or herself’. There is Jewish individualism but also Jewish communalism.

    In a national-and-racial America than a globalist one, white elites would reach out to white masses. White elites would pursue policies that favor the interests of white masses. Thus, white masses would feel confident and proud. And they wouldn’t feel they must win, win, and win to have a meaningful life. You wouldn’t have to a total winner. Even if you’re a middle-class white or working class white, you would feel as a part of an identity, history, and community. It’s like South African white elites used to take care of their own, like Zionist Jews in Israel did.

    But globalism says the white elites must not favor their own race. On occasion, white Americans may favor their own nation IF AND ONLY IF the national interests ‘coincide’ with those of globalist Zionists. So, Americans can be PROUD to be American in their patriotic hatred of Russians and Iranians(who pose no threat to white Americans and are targeted by the West ONLY BECAUSE Jewish elites don’t like them). So, whites can be patriotic American nationalists who hate Russia… but they better shut up about out-of-control immigration that is doing far greater harm to the US.
    This goes for Negroes too. Negroes would actually do much better to find a way to work with white folks. White folks have most to offer to Negroes. White folks feel most conscience toward blacks. But globalism and mult-culturalism have convinced blacks that they should just growl at whites while allying with immigrants. But it’s the immigrants who are taking black jobs.

    Anyway, if we ignore the bogus rhetoric and focus on the actual reality, globalism has increased pathological elitism among whites, especially white Libs. Whites can no longer be assured that this is their country or that elites care about them. If anything, elites in media hire punks like Zakaria who gloat and say, ‘you whiteys are dying off, haha’. White masses can no longer rely on white elites doing what is best for white people. And since the economy has been globalized, ‘American’ businesses will move capital and jobs all over the world to stay afloat and to maximize profits. At this point, even patriotic Americans cannot keep their factories in the US since they will lose out to others who send factories to nations with cheaper labor. Things have gotten so hectic that all white men and white women must work, work, and work to ‘thrive’. Thrive Mind is the New Hive Mind. So, forget about family and kids. They get in the way.

    So, whites better win, win, and win cuz the game is now only about winners and losers with nothing in between. And the game is purely economic since whites are not allowed to have racial, national, historical, or cultural pride. In the past, one could be a white person with little but still find meaning in being a proud white man or an American. Now, such isn’t allowed. And this isn’t only true in the West but even in the third world and non-West. Latin American elites are now just cucks of US-style globalism. Japan, Taiwan, Korea, Singapore, and etc are all following suit. They too suffer from white disease. Globalism, ultra-elitism, materialism, and PC have destroyed their birthrates. In Vietnam, young generation is raised on homo worship than on national pride. Russia resists but has come under tremendous economic and political pressure to go whole hog on globalism. Poland and Hungary resist, but they don’t have the firepower of globalism as controlled by US and EU dominated by Kosheria.

    People in the advanced world have grown accustomed to the good life and can’t conceive of life’s meaning without more and more affluence.
    Not long ago, the good life was buttressed by some degree of nationalism. The French were pretty nationalistic well into the 60s. Germans even through the early 90s believed in unique German identity.
    But PC and globalism undermined nationalism. So, there is no meaning to life other than money, money, money, and status, status, status. Nationalism was supposed to be replaced by PC multiculturalism and worship of ‘diversity’, but it is near-impossible to feel meaningfully ONE with the entire world. I mean what does a Hungarian have in common with a Mexican, Zimbabwean, Kenyan, Vietnamese, Cambodian, Bolivian, Iranian, etc? The only meaningful identity for him would be Hungarian and then European. But such an idea is considered ‘far right’ and ‘neo-Nazi’. Worse, what kind of identity and meaning is ‘white guilt’ and ‘white shame’ and obsessing incessantly about Nazi in every cupboard and everything-is-’racist’?

    When ultra-individualism and pathological elitism are the modes of white people in the New West, birth rates will naturally plummet. The successful will have kids ONLY IF they can be assured that their kids will be the best and go to best schools. Unless your kids win in life, they have no value.
    But birth rates will also decline among other whites since they see no meaning to life except in winning. Knowing that they cannot win and will be deemed losers, what’s the point of marrying and having kids? And when even modestly stable lives are often beyond the reach of many white folks, why take a risk with family? (Some women have babies out of wedlock with ‘bad boys’ because they see it as ‘winning’. Since rappers, athletes, and punks dominate pop culture, a lot of trashy women have been Kardashianized. They become economic losers by mating with such lowlife punks, but since bad boys have the alpha-male winner style, even poor trashy women think they are winners by having the kids of top warrior thugs. It’s a jungle-tribal-primal concept of winning. Some white libs combine economic victory with primal victory. They make good money and win economically, but they also want a taste of tribal-primal victory, so they invite negroes to hump their wives in acts of ‘cuckoldry’. Even as they lose to the Negroes who do their women, they feel as victors cuz they can afford to provide such jungalo pleasure to their women and know that the women will remain married to them cuz they got the money.) There was a time when just being white, proud, and American was enough to want to have families. And even though every parent wants his or her kid to do well, there was love for kids and a sense of value in having them simply because it was deemed to be meaningful to be white, proud, and American. But such feelings are gone. Furthermore, too many white guys grow up tarded and think culture is getting tattoos on their ass, and too many white girls think culture is ‘twerking’. When many lower-class do have kids, it is as single mothers with men who don’t even stick around.

    Indeed, libertine-ism has increased both extreme vulgarism and hyper-elitism. When US had a culture of shame, even the lowly folks knew it wasn’t proper to act too wild and crazy. This had a restraining effect on the masses, even the Negroes, most of whom were married and maintained family life. Since acting like pimps and whores were out of question, most men and women got married to enjoy sex and to have kids.
    But libertine-ism has turned lowly blacks and whites into animal-beasks with no sense of moral vision.

    The culture of shame also had a restraining effect on the rich who were frowned upon if they acted too out-of-control with their riches. But in our libertine era, not only do the lowly folks act like total animals but rich folks act like decadent self-indulgent kings-and-queens like Herod in JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR, especially with homo-worship as the new religion of the West.

    When winning is now so much about flaunting what you got — vice-celebrating as well as virtue-signaling — it isn’t good enough to win little. You have to win big. I suspect Bernie-Sanders-Socialism of upper-middle class folks is really about the resentment of the affluent for the super-affluent.

    When it comes to the likes of Rothkopft, we should do as they do, never listen to what they say. Rothboy will never ever suggest for Israel what he suggests for the West.

    In a nutshell, how the ‘best’ feel about the rest under globalism:

    As for Minsky…he was a famous professor. Status is a big deal for guys.

  236. I liked Gandhi the movie, but evidently it was not (gasp!) completely accurate: https://www.commentarymagazine.com/articles/the-gandhi-nobody-knows/

    Wow! “one of the most brazen hypocrisies” is more like it. That is more extreme than I had previously read.

    I’d like to see a movie about the super racist, black hating, caste system supporting, ultra violent Gandhi who in his seventies slept naked with teenage girls and personally administered them enemas.

  237. You know, this is a common elite disease. The crowned heads of Europe intermarried between countries all the time.

    Nice thing about democracy is they have to be afraid of the peasants once in a while.

  238. Even most racists don’t go Dylann Roof–a lot of them stick to themselves and simmer, or listen to David Allan Coe. And, honestly, what’s to be gained from shooting up a bunch of black people *in church*? Those people weren’t the problem.

    The prison rape thing bothers me, I admit. Still, if 1/4 of black men have jail records, that means 3/4 don’t.

    The real problem is that law enforcement profiling, like any test, runs into a sensitivity-specificity problem. Arresting more criminals means arresting more innocent black men. If you listen to ‘Black Lives Matter’ and tell police to be more circumspect, they will arrest fewer actual criminals and crime will rise…likely killing more black people.

    But, of course, I’m not the one spread-eagled against the car for driving through the wrong neighborhood. Nobody likes to be singled out for something their cousin or someone who happened to look like them did.

  239. Poles aren’t very conspicuous, because: 1) they tend to be fairly humble, low-key people an,d 2) a lot of them changed their names and intermarried with other white ethnic groups pretty quickly. You are right about Polish-Americans being overly represented among scientists, engineers, inventors etc. from what I have read on Wikipedia.

    I think Sicilians are a minority of Italian-Americans (although most Italian Americans do have roots in Southern Italy). I think they were overrepresented in the crime field (before the decline of the Italian-American mafia) but I don’t know how well Sicilians in particular do in other areas.

  240. Which explains why Jews can play Italians and vice versa.

    I like to blame my fondness for pasta on this, but as it would make me only 1/4 Italian, I doubt there is much to it.

  241. You’d have to calculate the number of Jewish intellectuals for and against immigration and then adjust for underlying political bias (are Jews more likely to be pro-immigration because they are liberal, or (as I suspect given Adelson et al.) is there an additional propensity to be pro-immigration? ).

    You’re probably right. I kind of alluded to that in my comment.

    (Yeah, I’m nesting parentheses. I’m a math major.)

  242. You’re here too.

  243. One man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter. You know that. ;)

    I think his point is that we’re moving to a world where anyone can contribute regardless of creed, color, etc.

    Where I think he’s wrong is that not every group will be able to contribute equally, and given the history of race relations in this country a white minority could face some real violence.

  244. “No doubt those stout English and Welsh were lamenting about the droves of drunken Germans and Irish, who in turn complained about the dirty Italians and Greeks, who in turn complained about those heathen Vietnamese…”

    You bet. But what happened after each bout of whining? They closed the gates for a few decades. That meant each new wave had to assimilate. They’re not doing that anymore.

  245. You could do a list of the top 10 Italian-American movie directors and look up their backgrounds:

    The Coppola family is from northern Italy and was highly cultured back in the Old Country. Francis’s paternal grandfather had been Caruso’s pianist.

    Scorsese’s background seems pretty average Italian-American.

    Capra was the only one of the seven children in his Sicilian family who could read.

    That’s a start.

  246. You forgot the bit about white women hating white guys and wanting black guys.

  247. Probably two. Some people lie about it. ;)

  248. Do you have a link that shows this in the genes or is there a historic record? I would think mate poaching would attract too much negative attention.

    The reason that men want to become elite (i.e. to acquire wealth and power) is to gain access to hot females. For them and their sons. Period. So Jewish male’s pronounced success at becoming elite led them to interbreed with shiksas, but not the reciprocal. The medieval Jews in Europe bred so successfully that they began taking prole jobs, at which point the prole natives (80%+ of the population) really got restless. (Leading to the Pale of Settlement, leading to Jews outreproducing to the point they were legally barred from buying farms to compete with indigenous slaves, leading to famine among Pale Jews, leading to the Bolshevik revolution…)

    Jews have been very successful at becoming elites. But, because they’re easily distinguishable from most Europeans, most of the time, both in attitude and appearance, the Europeans whose elite they join automatically resent being partially ruled by outsiders. Welcome to humanity, that always has been and always will be how groups of discernibly different humans behave regarding resource scarcity competition.

    Regarding your point about mate poaching leading to host-population backlash, you’re right. That and various other things Jewish elites do (arising from their intelligence and personality genes) pisses off the non-elite gentile host population and leads to “populism,” which Jewish voices typically denounce. Populism ranges from simple things like the 1920s introduction of an immigration moratorium, at the gentle end, to pogroms and Nazis at the really angry end. Remember: to hate is to want something to disappear. When Jewish elites overstep, as they inherently do by outcompeting others for resources (again, the definition of being elite) and not being able to stop themselves when they’ve had enough (e.g. America is sufficiently diluted to forestall the possibility of another Holocaust happening here. Stop the diversity crap!), native peoples who are facing resource scarcity want them gone.

  249. I researched the background of the Caymmi family, master samba composers of Brazil. (Two US standards: Dorival’s “And Roses and Roses”, and Dori’s “Like a Lover”, English lyric by the Bergmans.)

    Their Caimi progenitor came from Milan or Turin about 1810. That’s quite early and quite northern compared to Italian-Americans, but may be more typical of Latin America.

    There’s no Y in Italian or Portuguese, but one sees a lot of them in Brazilian music circles; it’s kind of like the umlauts in metal band names, an affectation.

  250. Chinese artist Ai Weiwei poses as drowned Syrian refugee.

    Funny, he doesn’t look Lesbian…

    Away with Ai Weiwei!

  251. You just need to look at wikipedia:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Sicilian_Americans

    Lots of actors, musicians and film-makers:
    Joseph Barbera (from Hannah and Barbera animation), Steve Buscemi, etc.

    Not many scientists, at least in this list. A few businessmen. The creator of Subway I think had Sicilian origin (or maybe Neapolitan).

    Enrico Fermi’s mom was from southern Italy too (Bari).
