Vanishing American quotes Daniel Webster on the human ability to connect with past and succeeding generations. They are “Links in the Great Chain of Being” as VA titles the post and which phrase is embedded in Webster’s quotation. The Wright Island Model tells us immigration cuts the link. Eventually, descendants have nothing in common with previous members of a society in genetic terms.
What consequences flow from this? It undermines the basis of thinking that people today act as if they were infinitely long lived. By severing this link among the generations, human rationality is altered. Thus the rationality and morality of society are altered.
What worked as rules for pseudo long lived individuals to preserve the society for a long time no longer work for individuals who won’t be linked to future generations by descent. This will result in the society no longer being able to survive. The society becomes a random walk of morality, customs and institutions.
Infinitely long lived families can help substitute for the short lives of individuals so that they replicate the behavior of infinitely long lived individuals. Immigration eliminates the possibility of infinitely long lived families in a genetic sense. This follows from the Wright Island Model Theorem. Thus immigration eliminates the family as a pseudo infinitely long lived individual in a genetic sense. Thus the morality of a society that tries to replicate the morality of infinitely long lived individuals through the means of infinitely long lived genetic families is rendered no longer rational in the way it was.
(The following is the original comment posted at Vanishing American. It may repeat some of the same ground as the above.)
Human rationality is based on this capacity and tendency to identify with past and future generations. Society rationality has to be derived from this form of individual reality. The family helps mediate and to create both forms of rationality, individual embedded in time and the progression of individuals, and that of society embedded in time and the progression of its members.
One way migration by the Wright Island Model causes genetic replacement. Thus the basis of rationality in society is cutoff. Societies can’t be rational because the basic goal of life has now been made impossible to be achieved. This applies to powerful and poor alike. Both then behave irrationally relative to a society where the progression of generations is based on the family, not on immigration.
A progression of individuals based on immigration does not induce the same behavior “as rational”. What is rational in a progression of individuals in a succession of family units is not rational in a progression of individuals or even families by immigration.
The welfare state has the same impact to some extent, but not as great. The result is that by eliminating the family mechanism by which progression in time of individuals creates the ultimate members of society, the society no longer has the same basis of rationality.
The new basis of society’s members means that down the road the society is not connected by blood to those who act on it now by their choices.
An infinitely lived individual has incentives. A succession of blood descendants while not the same as an infinitely lived individual comes closer. But a succession of unrelated persons is not an infinitely long lived individual.
In each step away from an infinitely long lived individual, what is rational for that person changes. As a consequence the rules and rewards of society for that individual don’t work the same. So what is rational for an immigration society is different than what is rational for a blood descent society. The immigration society is also effectively separated completely from long lived individuals. Thus the immigration society is separated in what is rational from the infinitely long lived individual society. This separation means that rationality and thus morality are separated. Infinitely long lived individuals and the immigration society are completely
separated. Thus their morality and rationality are separated.
Economic theory and game theory often rely on infinitely long lived individuals to derive behavior of individuals that we recognize as moral and rational. Economic theory and game theory can also be applied to institutions. Keeping those institutions as moral and rational also depends on infinitely long lived individuals.
The overlapping generations model builds in an overlapping of generations where each young adult generation cares for the infant generation and the old generation. When the genetic succession is ended, the assumption that this happens in the same way is undermined. So that the rationality of what society defines as moral can change.
The result of immigration is to disconnect the generations. Thus the overlapping generations model of economics is no longer moored in traditional behavior and traditional societies. It thus becomes a mathematical model less linked or unlinked to human reality in an immigration society. The result is that individuals will no longer feel the same incentives to behave as the overlapping generations model assumes they will.
New immigrants are not part of the old bargain and may substitute new ways or new loyalties. The basis of morality and rationality in a closed overlapping generations model is in doubt in the one way migration society. The overlapping generations model as a moral model where rational behavior is what we think of as moral is linked to it being applied to a traditional society of genetic descent.
When we switch to an immigration society, we have to switch to a different model. What would we call that? Invasion might be a term. In an invasion model, we don’t get the same rational behavior. Thus what is moral is different. In an invasion society, ethnic cleansing, breaking old bargains, substituting new customs to show new bargains is what is rational and what is moral.
By using new customs, the invaders show that they are making bargains only good within their ethnic group or race. Thus when they break the old bargains of the society, they tell their young there is a still an inter-generational deal going within the new invading group. Thus the invading group tries to replicate the old traditional overlapping generations rationality. This is done to replicate traditional overlapping generations morality. That guides individuals in the new invading group.
What happens in the old group? Without viable succeeding generations of its own, it is cutoff from the old overlapping generations rationality and thus morality. It really is morally adrift. It is simply dying. Its now just parts for the new people and the new society which is the customs, traditions, institutions and families of the new society. Those customs are meant to signify that the inter-generational deal is only within that group, and there is no loyalty outside the group.
The new groups ethnically cleanse the old. The young males of the invading group force out the people of the old group, young or old. They are part of an inter-generational deal that is for the new group alone. They act according to what is rational under the customs of the new group. Those customs are intended to signify separation of that group from other groups and the old society.
Thus an immigrating group acts like an invading group. It adheres more to its customs than in the old country to signify to its members that the inter-generational deals in the new land are within that group only. The group should not feel loyalty to the other groups in the new land or expect it. Fair dealing is confined within the group, and trickery violence and deceit are what is given and expected from the other groups.
This is the morality of the 3rd world. Its the morality of the collapse of the Roman Empire, and of other empires. When the overlapping generations deal is destroyed, rationality and morality are altered. The old society no longer exists once it can no longer deliver on the overlapping generation deals.
Immigration means that the old society can’t deliver on the old overlapping generation deals because the new groups are separate and distinct and maintain their separate customs to signify the overlapping generation deals are within group only. Thus the old society is dead once immigration starts. This is because the old overlapping generation deals are dead.
We see this in immigration societies. The customs and traditions change. These signal a change in loyalty and a change away from loyalty to the old groups and society. This happened in the 19th century. It is happening in the post 1965 immigration even more because the people and customs are even more different. Both signal that overlapping generation deals are within group only. That means the old society is dead. That means its deals are dead.
The death of a society is a feedback loop, just as the birth of a new one is. Immigration fuels the decay feedback loop with the same strength as it fuels the new growth feedback loop. The faster the immigration growth the more the old society dies. Moreover, as soon as its internal growth rate dies, the deal making capacity of the old society dies. So it dies instantly.
Immigration as a regime causes an instant death of the old society in that its long term deal making capacity is dead. But its entire rationality and morality was wrapped around its ability to deliver on long term overlapping generation deals. This in turn let it simulate by genetic families infinitely long lived individuals. This made acting like infinitely long lived individuals rational for its people.
Immigration ends all of that immediately. The old society’s long term deal making is dead. That means its morality is dead.
The new customs of the new groups signal they are alive unlike the old dead society. They are living and it is dead. It is now just spare parts for them. Their group customs and morality signal that to its group members.
Only a total cutoff of immigration can stop this. Just as starting immigration immediately kills the old society, totally stopping immigration can at least partly revise it. Sending as many newcomers and new customs back as possible also helps revive its long term deal making capacity and thus its very life and ability to dictate a morality by its control of those long term overlapping generation deals.
Roman history often talks about old families. One sometimes sees that part of what made Rome work, particularly the Republic, was long lived families. As their role diminished, the Republic died. The Republic became a form of immigration by conquest. The result was similar to the above process of immigration in place so to speak. The Empire died as its ability to preserve families died. It lost its ability to make overlapping generation deals. So its morality died.
As this happened, it changed religions. But it changed religion in place, not as a flow of new people. Christianity in Rome was an in-place change that signaled a return to traditional morality. One reason it lasted longer in the East is they had less of the amoral Roman customs like gladiatorial games.
The new religions of immigration in the West signal the old society is dead. These are part of invasion, not a change in place to try to restore traditional morality lost by Rome in its expansion. In effect, Rome created immigration by expansion and needed a new religion in place to try to return to the traditional society that Rome lost by no longer being a city state.
New religions from immigration are the opposite. New religions brought by immigration signal the death of the old society and that the new group has no loyalty to the old group. New religions from immigration signal that the old society can’t deliver on its old intergenerational deals.
Islam in particular is an invasion religion. Its entire character signals takeover and replacement. It institutionalizes such thinking as its basic message to its members. Islam also played a substantial role in ending the old Ancient world and the remnants of the Roman Empire.
In fact, Islam hunted down every spot on earth it could get its hands on the old Roman empire and destroyed it. The Fall of Constantinople in 1452 was an over 800 year struggle to do so. But that struggle still goes on. Islam is delivering on its original deal to destroy the West and the religions and adherents of the West.
Among immigrants, Islam is stronger to signal that they are not loyal to the old society and that the intergenerational deals of the old society don’t apply. Islam is a religion of replacing the people and the customs. This is why Islam is so particularly violent. It is also why Islam seeks out confrontation and to lay down markers and impose accommodation to it by the institutions of the old society. That this accommodation is granted signals to old and new alike that the old society is dead.
To remedy this, immigration must be stopped to almost zero. This means 25,000 per year or less in the U.S. The point of stopping immigration is precisely to end family reunification. Family reunification immigration signals the death of the old society. But all immigration does that by the Wright Island Model. A new change has to signal that there will be no significant genetic influx. Moreover, it has to be permanent to work. To signal that the old society has the deal making capacity of intergenerational deals, immigration must be dead forever. Only then can traditional rationality and thus traditional morality be restored to life and have credibility.

It is precisely because humans understand themselves as such links that they have a morality that promotes the survival of families and society. Immigration cuts the link. Immigration ends traditional morality. Our sorrows flow from this. Our dysfunctional education system flows from it. So does a Bill Gates who doesn’t stress training his workers but replacing them from India and China. When genes circulate within a society, we all have a stake in each other. Rationality reflects the circulation. Morality then encodes that rationality.
When they replace from outside, that cuts all the links. The circulation model is replaced by the invasion model. That changes rationality. That changes morality. The disloyalty shown by Bill Gates shows how morality changes instantly when immigration is started. There was an instant fall off in morality in the 1960’s and that has picked up and intensified until we could see it on our TV screens on 9/11 as well as on our streets, and in our schools, workplaces, colleges, hospitals and government.
We investigated various cases of the island model with stochastic migration. If the population is infinite, the immigrants have a fixed gene frequency and the alleles are neutral, the gene frequency on the island converges to that of the immigrants.
It is the alleles of rationality and morality that are changed as well. The very sinews of a society are replaced. Its institutions lose the ability to command loyalty or reward it. All see this. All act on it. The new rationality and new morality are transmitted instantly.
The president praises what killed our people on 9/11 in his Religion of Peace Speech. That signaled his submission to the new rationality of Islam, the new morality of Islam. Everyone understood that. That is why they dictate what cartoons we watch, what books we read, and what we say or think, even in our homes. They decide what is taught to our children in schools and colleges. They are the future. They can deliver on promises and threats, the old society can’t. The Empire is Dead. That is what we saw on 9/11. That is why we reacted as cowards in the days and years afterwards. That is why we continued Muslim immigration instead of sending them back.
That is why we submit to foot baths at airports that are subjected to intrusive search of us because of the violence of their young men to ethnically cleanse us from our land. And it is ethnic cleansing, not just religious cleansing. This is about genes. It is about the Links in the Great Chain of Being, which are genetic links. Culture follows the genetic trail. The new genetic trail imposes a new religion and morality that signals that it doesn’t owe any loyalty or any performance to the old society or the old people. 9/11 was meant to signal that, as have all the humiliations that we have accepted since then.
All of the humiliations signal that the old society is dead because its old Chain of Being is cutoff. The humiliations signal that promises in overlapping generation deals can’t be performed by the old society. So its not rational to be loyal. So there is no morality of loyalty to the old society or to the old ethnic groups. Their ability to deliver on promises on an intergenerational basis is dead because they don’t produce people, immigration does. So loyalty dies. Bush could not have pronounced the death of the old society and old loyalties and old morality more clearly than he did by praising the Religion of Peace, i.e. submission and the death of the West.
The smartest people get the message quickest. The wealthy and universities and MSM get the message that old loyalty doesn’t pay in the new immigration order. They are the ones who have abandoned the old society the fastest. They embrace a morality a betrayal. They choose our list of candidates and we have to vote for the lesser of many betrayals.
This is why reform means zero immigration. Zero means less than 25,000 total per year including students, temporary workers, illegals, family reunification, etc. It means showing the elites its just us. It means showing everyone not permanently here the door. It means a circulation model of genes and the traditional morality it implies. The foreign presence among us must be minimized in all ways possible. This means no mosques that reach the sky. This means no foot baths. This means no PC that limits our traditions and empowers theirs. It requires reversing at least some of the recent flow. This is true in all the Western lands.
No student visas is essential. Colleges and universities are where young people mate. They can’t be the locus of immigration. The message must be sent of circulation of genes, not immigration. That means almost zero student visas. The few are exchange students with other Western lands.
