Hungarians are having a vote today on whether to accept refugees under the EU's resettlement program. It looks like they will vote overwhelmingly against it. I find Hungary a fascinating contrast to the rest of Europe. What would be considered "far right" anywhere in western Europe is mainstream there. Even bishops and typical journalists are openly critical of Islam and immigration.
Why has this happened? Life under a communist dictatorship undoubtedly played a part in inoculating people against leftist totalitarianism masquerading as virtue. But it seems to me that part of the explanation may be genetic.
One of the most important milestone moments in history is the transition from nomadic hunting and gathering to settled agriculture. Nomadic societies tend to be highly egalitarian because there is no storable wealth. The only wealth to speak of is meat from slaughtered animals which cannot be stored long-term because it is highly perishable. For that reason, you may as well share it. If there are disagreements in the nomadic hunter group or attempts to establish overlordship, some of the group can easily just break away and roam a new territory of their own. For that reason they tend to be minimally hierarchical.
All of that changes with the transition to settled agriculture. You then have storable wealth in the form of agricultural products. Once that exists, some people will find ways to extort it from others using threats of violence. Hierarchies will form and the people at the top - whether they call themselves chiefs, kings, presidents or prime ministers - will use the proceeds of their extortion to pay for armies of followers to do their bidding.
From then on, life under a hierarchy becomes a permanent part of the human condition. People respond to this in different ways. Some people have genes that code for rebellious and subversive attitudes and behaviour. Those people will be eugenically disfavoured in a society based on settled agriculture. Violent rulers will kill or imprison those who challenge them. People with rebel genes will therefore enjoy lower reproductive success than people with tame genes, meaning every new generation will have a smaller proportion of rebels in it.
This, I think, is part of the explanation for what is happening to Europeans. We have been tamed by the practice of settled agriculture for 4000 years and the accompanying life under a hierarchy. The rebel genes have been screened out of the gene pool. The world wars may even have contributed to this with a disproportionate culling of the more martially inclined; and martial inclinations may well correlate with rebelliousness.
If the elites of Morocco, the Congo, Turkey or Iran - almost anywhere outside European civilisation, really, although I'm not sure about east Asians like Japan and China - tried to repopulate their country with aliens, the people would rise up and massacre them, the aliens and the elites. Only a tame and emasculate people would submit to this.
How does this relate to Hungarians? Unlike most other Europeans, Hungarians have not been practising settled agriculture for 4000 years. They were a nomadic people that only arrived in "Hungary" about 1000 years ago. For that reason, the taming process has gone much less far in them. The genes for rebelliousness should be more widespread in their gene pool.
To summarise, my hypothesis is that the length of time a people has been practising settled agriculture is inversely related to the degree of patriotic resistance it displays when its ruling class embarks on the process of repopulating the country with aliens. And, of course, since these are genetic traits, this would apply to individuals based on their ancestral descent, not just to "countries".
If this true, and you had precise enough data, you could probably see interesting patterns of variation even within European populations based on the time at which their ancestors took up settled agriculture. For example, observing the various patriotic resistance movements that exist, including in European diaspora societies, it strikes me that people of Irish descent are disproportionately represented in them. It may be that Ireland, too, was late in taking up settled agriculture and therefore adapting to life under a hierarchy with the gradual taming effect this entails.
Incidentally, there are reports of Germans moving to Hungary to get away from "refugees" and because they want to live somewhere where Europeans are not going to let themselves be turned into an ethnic minority. I'm also thinking of moving there myself.
