If you want to know just how shitty a group of people are, just give them their own country and see what they do when they get a hold of it. Israel is the nation of the Jews. It’s one of the worst countries on Earth. What does that tell you? Turkey is the nation of the Turks, the Gulf Arab countries are the countries of the Gulf Arabs, and India is the country of the Indians. Three of the worst countries on Earth by far, in the running with (((that shitty little country))).
Israel sucks because it’s full of Jews, and this is how Jews act if you give them a country.
Turkey sucks because it’s full of Turks, and this is how Turks act if you give them a country.
Gulf Arab countries suck because they’re full of Gulf Arabs, and this is how Gulf Arabs act if you give them countries.
India sucks because it’s full of Indians, and this is how Indians act if you give them a country.
Why does Mexico blow? Because it’s full of Mexicans, that’s why.
What other reason could there be? Every nation is created by the people who make it up. If the people suck, you get a crappy country. If the people are decent, you tend to get a pretty good country. The only times this might not be true is when the majority oppose the state, but that’s not the case in any of the above nations except Bahrain, where the majority Shia oppose the awful government.
Colombia sucks because it’s full of Colombians.
Guatemala sucks because it’s full of Guatemalans.
El Salvador blows because it’s full of Salvadorans.
Honduras sucks because it’s full of Hondurans (although to be fair, most of the people oppose the state).
Haiti sucks because it’s full of Haitians. Now, I happen to like Haitians in a political sense because 9
Brazil blows because it’s full of Brazilians, a half good and half bad people. Looks like the majority tips bad though because they just voted in a picture-perfect model of Mussolini.
And don’t give me this, “Oh, the people are wonderful! It’s just their terrible government!”
But people aren’t set in stone. Germans and Japanese used to be the worst people on Earth, and now they’re some of the best. But I’m not quite so hopeful about some others. Haitians, for instance, may be problematic for a long time. But electing a Lavalas leader would sure be a step forward.
