The Third World? It's Murder Out There
Honduras is on the path to having the highest murder rates in the world.
Jamaica is a perennial crime capital of the Caribbean -- which is saying quite a lot.
Latin America is often dangerous, but if you look you should find some safe havens.
Part of the problem involves race. As we have noted before, in the US, African American males are the worst offenders. Take away African American crime from the US, and the country compares well with the best of Europe on that score. Areas of the world with large populations of African descent will typically have high rates of violent crime. Low IQ and low impulse control appear to be the most likely heritable traits contributing to high violent crime in persons of African descent.
US Hispanics likewise exhibit higher rates of violent crime than both European and Asian Americans, although Hispanic crime rates are not nearly as high as African American crime rates. That being the case, one must wonder why Latin American crime rates rival the worst of African rates.
Part of the problem is the violently competitive drug trade in Latin America. Another part of the problem is the conflation caused by African American populations living in Latin American cities who exhibit high crime rates there. In addition, given the extreme high rates of crime within some indigenous tribes in Latin America, one must allow for the possibility that some behavioural traits contributing to criminal behaviour are inherited within the mestizo communities.
Given these possible reasons for high crime in Africa and Latin America, it should be clear that the politically correct agenda of modern leftists will be of absolutely no help at all in lowering third world crime rates.
So what do we do? First of all, immigration from the third world into the advanced world should be severely curtailed immediately. Second, black markets within the advanced world which contribute to third world crime should be crippled, using market means and deregulation as much as possible rather than law enforcement. Third, every effort should be made to aid the deportation of third world career criminals who have taken up residence within advanced nations.
More on this topic later.
