Immigrants get 100,000 kroner Govt incentive to leave Denmark


Am I alone in seeing a contradiction between ‘individualism’ and ‘assimilation.’

The Danish People’s Party (DF) has strengthened its immigration stance by securing an agreement to pay ‘anti-social’ foreigners 100,000 kroner to leave Denmark. Refugees and those who come to Denmark under family reunification schemes currently get 28,256 in repatriation support if they leave, of which 11,000 is a bonus. The bonus is usually paid out a year after the recipient returns home and their right to Danish residency expires.

Neither the government nor DF has yet elaborated on what constitutes an ‘anti-social’ foreigner, but have said that it would be aimed at those who ‘can’t or won’t integrate’. (via Foreigners to get 100,000 kroner incentive to leave Denmark).

Not the first … not the last time

Its not just the Danes. The French feel let down because “immigrants were supposed to blend harmoniously into society and not exist in separate communities” – and they did not.

Behind this is a centuries old accepted political principle, a ‘settled’ principle in the Desert Bloc – ‘Cuius regio, eius religio’ (meaning whose land, his religion; CRER) – the ruler decided his people’s religion.

After the Fourth Crusade (1202–1204), Vatican invoked the CRER principle (‘Cuius regio, eius religio’) during its brief rule over the Byzantine Empire to reject religious objections by the Byzantine subjects. Post Hussite Wars and the ‘Reformation’, establishing the CRER principle to settle Germany, giving rise to the logic of ‘ubi unus dominus, ibi una sit religio’ (One ruler, one religion). Just in case someone had religious disagreement, the logic was they could well emigrate – (ius emigrandi).

As the 19th century progressed, slave revolts made slavery impractical. Faced with a reality of ‘warm-bodies-shortage’, ‘liberalism’, ‘secular’ Governments, Marxism, Socialism et al were invented in the 19th century. It is this principle which accounts for the low levels of diversity in the West – and which also accounts for the shrillness with which the West proclaims it ‘liberalism’ – facts being otherwise.

Melting pot vs Mosaic patterns

The need for ‘integration’, the concerns over the slow ‘assimilation’ of the Mexicans in the American melting pot, the Islamo-phobia, the Compulsive Jihadic Syndrome, are all sides of the same cube. The schizophrenic Christian aggression in India combined with hysterical protests against any backlash are symptoms of the same ideological thread.

While the West talks about the respect for the individual, facts are otherwise. Similarly, expatriate populations in the Middle East have to live with disrespect and intolerance of non-Islamic religions.

Lowest diversity vs. Biggest talk

The West today has the lowest levels of ethnic, linguistic and religious diversity – and persecutes whatever little is left, like the Roma Gypsies for example. Would critics like to mention any other country, where such a large minority Muslim population, has greater freedom and opportunity, than in India? Would you like to suggest France instead?

In the thrall of One

The Western concept of nation building requires the cornerstones of Desert Bloc – One God, One Book, One Holy Day, One Prophet (Messiah), One Race, One People, One Country, One Authority, One Law, One Currency, One Set of Festivals. This tyranny of the ‘One’ is the root of most problems in the world. From this ‘Oneness’, we get the ‘One’ Currency, ‘One’ Language logic  – a fallacious syllogism. Once you accept ‘One’, you will accept all others.

The Indic model

Unlike the Indian social system, where differences are respected and encouraged, the position of the French Government, paraphrases the thinking of the ‘desert bloc’. Indians believe that all are वसुधैव कुटुम्बकम, vasudhaiva kutumbakam (meaning “vasudha”, the earth; “eva” = emphasizer and “kutumbakam”, “family”) and ईसा वास्यो मिदं सर्वं isa vaasyo midam sarvam’ (meaning God is in everyone and everywhere respectively).

    Anurag,

    The assimilation to local society was existing in india too.. you know, the pre-mughal polity in india consisted of 56 dhesams.. and hundreds of sub-dhesams.. and each dhesam had their own cultural identity, that any foreigners are required to follow.. this is called dhesa dharma..

    While in india, it is cultural assimilation without race, whereas in the west, its about race..

    Senthil – There is a difference between desha-dharma and ‘assimilation’.

    For instance, Indian Laws were not written by kings, but intellectuals – and their legal models were implemented across the country, crossing all borders. The most recent example is Vijnaneshvara’s commentary, titled the Mitakshara from Karnataka. (Modha – If you are reading this, you can add your own points here.).

    Written sometime in 11th century, his commentary is accepted as an authority on Indian law – across India. Not just Karnataka. The other legal system that is popular in India was the Dayabhaga system.

    There was nothing about the sovereignty of Parliament, kind of ideas here. It was sheer wisdom, learning and the power of ideas. Even the king could not make laws overruling this.

    So your very concept of Desh Dharma is a misinterpretation.

    The way Desh Dharma operated was different. For instance, shubh labh was one such system. How did that get implemented. Instead of a State-controlled Weights and Measures Department, the trading community fixed their own system.

    So, till about 25 years ago, in many fruit and vegetable markets in India, when you asked for a price, you got a quotation for a hundred. But the trader would actually give you 152. The balance 52 was for spoilage, defectives, etc. Similarly, milkman would give more than a litre – and not try and give an ‘exact’ lite to the ml. This system was called chakda. This proportion varied across India, across products. But giving ‘extra’ was the basis of shubh labh This variation was desh-dharma.

    I suspect that the word dozen came from dasham – when the trader quoted for ten – and gave twelve. Remember that Origene talked about Buddhism being already established in Britain in 200 AD.

    CN – You are right.

    Looks like they have removed this post.

    But you can read it on the web-archive.

    It is also reproduced here.

    What the mainstream media removes from their website is often more interesting than what they publish!

    Two more posts from CP here.
