The EU and mainstream media said Europe’s ageing population needed migrants to rejuvenate its workforce.
If their statement was correct, then the results of the migrant crisis would’ve been great: Hundreds of thousands of migrant should have been gainfully employed by now.
A lot of migrants don’t have the skills required to compete in Europe’s modern workforce
The reality, however, is totally different. For example in Germany, Switzerland and the Netherlands between 80 and 99 percent of migrants are unemployed after sometimes more than a year.
A lot of migrants don’t have the skills required to compete in Europe’s modern workforce. But according to Professor Rindermann of the German University of Chemnitz there is also a problem of intelligence.
Professor of Psychology Heiner Rindermann, already caused a minor controversy when he stated in Oktober 2015 that refugees (migrants) have a lower average intelligence than Germans and gave evidence for his claim.
According to his study, refugees with university degrees had an average IQ of 93 in mathematical and abstract tasks; the same skill level as indigenous high school students.
As a result, Professor Rindermann wrote in German magazine Focus:
“The majority of immigrants from South-eastern Europe, the Middle East and Africa do not have a high qualification profile.”
Rindermann went on to claim that the often cited “language problem” is only partly to blame for this discrepancy and more important are weaknesses in basic skills. He adds that the problem is exacerbated by the “more frequent consanguineous marriages (i.e. first cousin marriages) in Muslim communities and in Africa with [their]corresponding impairments”.
“These people will master the technical and cultural complexity of a modern country less successfully and risk making more cognitive errors in daily life”, Rindermann concluded.
The findings of Rindermann were hard to swallow for the mainstream media and the left in general. Regardless of the facts, leftist member of parliament, Susanne Schaper, made the outrageous suggestion to the distinguished university professor that he should go back to school to learn how to express himself politically correctly. In a way, Ms Shaper admits that modern publicly funded education is one big indoctrination course.
The left believe that all men are equal in ability and potential but this is simply not true the global IQ map shows. The map almost perfectly corresponds to the UN Human Development Index.
States that have high-cognitive ability populations, are not only wealthier, on average they are also freer and more democratic
Admitting that people from different regions differ is not ipso facto racist, concluding that one group performs better at x task is not admitting y group is therefore inferior. As more research on heritability and genetics comes to light, expect to find more conclusions that question the obsolete, archaic and tired narrative from the 1920s that still holds a pernicious grip on society and serves only to stifle honest debate.
Lets conclude with what Professor Rindermann said in 2017 about differences in cognitive abilities and their consequences:
“States that have populations with high cognitive abilities are not only wealthier, on average they are also freer and more democratic, the rule of law and equality are more developed in them and their governments are more competent. These societies have lower homicide rates and are more peaceful… Modernity as such, is a ‘cognitive modernity’ and it can neither be mastered nor advanced without high cognitive abilities.!”
