Rarely has news from an academic paper struck such a responsive nerve with the general public. The National Science Foundation (NSF) reported in its General Social Survey that unprecedented numbers of Americans are lonely. Published in the American Sociological Review (ASR) and authored by Miller McPhearson, Lynn Smith-Lovin and Matthew Brashears, sociologists at Duke and the University of Arizona, the study featured 1,500 face-to-face interviews, where more than a quarter of the respondents -- one in four -- said that they have no one with whom they can talk about their personal troubles or triumphs. If family members are not counted, the number doubles to more than half of Americans who have no one outside their immediate family with whom they can share confidences. Sadly, the researchers noted that the number of “socially isolated” Americans has doubled since 1985. Why Are More Americans Lonely Today? - HUMAN EVENTS Comment The main reason is a multiracial society because it creates alienation and racial tension. Only in multiracial countries will you find a breakdown in trust and community. Human beings, just like all other forms of life have instincts, and there is racial diversity in the world because of these instincts. Why do you think that we separated into different parts of the world to begin with? Why are we more attracted to members of our own race, or prefer the company of our own people? It has nothing to do with education or upbringing. For races to survive they must have living space (nations) in order to breed true. The thing I hate most is when white people deny these facts from their 99% white neighborhood. The second thing I hate most is when people think that this is racist. What's racist is a multiracial society because it breeds racism. Notice there is no racism between Swedes and Chinese, but if you force them to live in the same country I guarantee there will be racism. Ergo, if whites and blacks lived in separate countries, there would be no racism between them. The only exception would be the racial supremacists who believe that they have a right to exploit other people, but they are an extremely small minority in the world. Anyone that disagrees with this comment has been brainwashed by Hollywood and Corporate Media along with Political Correctness!
