Very much so, thus back to my original Hypothesis what does the Jewish nation of the BCE era, the Nazi era in germany, and the Jim Crow era in the south all have in common? They all were defeated by a force of diversity that completely overwhelmed them and they could not respond because they had a closed system that valued Purity over merit.

Would you consider religions a closed system? They do value woo over critical thinking. Maybe I should say a closed "mind" instead of "system".

Human societies only thrive and expand if they are willing to allow the influx of new ideas and peoples into them. Thus any society based on the notion of racial or intellectual superiority is doomed from the beginning as a failed cause. Drawing it back to the time period we have been discussing we have an excellent example in the 2 societies at conflict during the 2nd century bce through the end of the first century ce. Rome vs Judia, The Romans are histories greatest empire builders and keepers for the simple fact that they would assimilate the best of any conquered peoples and were always improving.

Judia on the other hand was a closed society any new ideas were scoffed at as gentile filth and unworthy of "God's chosen people" however a look at their history shows not a chosen people but a group so opposed to change and new ideas that had they not occupied a major point along the trade route no one would have ever even bothered with them. I find it ironic that the ancient Israelites and the KKK share almost exactly the same philosophy and both tend to poison the area's in which they hold sway.

Well thats my Hypothesis and I think it holds together well but please feel free to comment criticise.

This is my baseline.

Would you consider religions a closed system? They do value woo over critical thinking. Maybe I should say a closed "mind" instead of "system".

So my use of closed system was in opposition to an open integrated system. Japan before the British showed up is another great example of a closed society.

Swatting is a different subject.
