First Worldism

First Worldism is the view that the policy stances and government outcomes we classify as “first world” and “third world” are a function of population genetics. The “first world” peoples are primarily, though not exclusively, European, with minorities of other races having people who have, on aggregate, genetic predispositions to first-world traits.

First-world traits are:

  • anti-authoritarian views of knowledge and truth,
  • a lower level of social sensitivity, conformity and consensus-seeking
  • support for free speech
  • opposition to heavy government intervention and regulating of private property (i.e. the consensus-economies of West, Central, South, Southeast and East Asia), support for free markets
  • lower crime, higher diligence and self-control, higher IQs.
  • less interest in grievance politics and bloc-politics

These views and traits are a function primarily of evolution within Europe, and while promoted by certain institutions, those institutions are first created by the population. Europeans west of the Hajnal lines most epitomize these traits, and Europeans further north epitomize these traits more than Europeans further south.

While you can describe “Third World Traits” as well, it’s more appropriate to describe First World Traits, as these traits are abnormal compared to the rest of humanity. It could be called “Old World” and “New World” traits, with European traits being “new world” and asiatic, amerindian and african traits being “old world”. Though that may confuse people into thinking it has something to do with the Americas.

The way to think of it is that these traits, in conjunction, evolved in Europe, with only East Asians and some Indian groups being more “first world” on SOME, not all, of these traits. And it was the evolution of these traits that allowed for the European Revolution – the European conquest of most of the world, the outlawing of slavery and feudalism worldwide, and the industrial revolution and the popularization of the notions of “individual rights” and “self-determination”.
