Auster's Laws of Majority-Minority Relations in Liberal Society

I found this interesting, accurate and informative.

By Lawrence Auster

  • "The worse any designated minority or alien group behaves in a liberal society, the bigger become the lies of Political Correctness in covering up for that group." (source) A "restate[ment]" of the First Law.

  • "The more egregiously any non-Western or non-white group behaves, the more evil whites are made to appear for noticing and drawing rational conclusions about that group's bad behavior." (source) Stated as the "First Corollary" to the First Law.

  • "Once the equality of all human groups is accepted as a given, any facts that make a minority or foreign group seem worse than the majority native group must be either covered up or blamed on the majority." (source) This may be the original statement of the First Law.

  • "The more illegitimate and dangerous you are, the easier it is for you [to immigrate to the West], and the more legitimate and productive you are, the harder it is for you." (source) A "variation" on the First Law.

  • "When a society, acting with the purpose of eliminating all historic forms of exclusion and discrimination, including, ultimately, its own historic and ethnocultural identity as a society, admits large numbers of people into it who do not fit into it, either because of lower abilities or incompatible cultural/religious adhesions, the fact that they do not fit, when it is finally recognized, can only be blamed on the society itself. To blame the lack of fit on the newcomers would be to revive the very discrimination that their admission was meant to overcome. As long as the host society accepts the principle of non-discriminatory inclusion as the very basis of its own moral legitimacy, it must keep admitting more and more unassimilables, whose lack of ability to function in or identify with the society becomes more and more troublesome, a problem that, in accord with Auster's First Law of Majority-Minority Relations in Liberal Society, must be blamed more and more on the racism of the society. Thus the more the society undoes itself in the name of indiscriminately including and favoring unassimilably diverse peoples, the more racist and guilty it becomes in its own eyes, leading to more and more minority preferences, speech codes, anti-hate laws, official lies, and the multicultural dismantling of the majority culture." (source) An excellent example of applying the First Law.

  • "The WORSE a designated minority group behaves, the MORE we must blame ourselves for it." (source) Perhaps the most succinct statement of the First Law.

  • "The more racial problems are created by liberal race policies, the more racist whites are." (source)

  • "Given the inverted standards introduced into race relations by the belief in equality, the less deserving a nonwhite actually is, the more deserving he thinks he is." (source) Another "variation" on the First Law.

  • Here's the First Law expressed well in its three main variations:
    "1. The worse a designated minority or non-Western group behave, the more they are praised and their sins covered up.
    2. The worse a designated minority or non-Western group behave, the more racist it becomes to speak the truth about their behavior.
    3. The worse a designated minority or non-Western group behave, the more their behavior must be blamed on white racism." (source)
    4. [Added January 23, 2009: I like this new statement of it, made in relation to the media's sanitizing of a rash of beheadings by nonwhites in Canada, England, and the U.S..] The worse the behavior of minorities and non-Westerners, the more the behavior must be covered up or excused, and the more racist a white is for noticing it and thinking about it.
