Jewish ethnocentrism and European individualism

Surely, many people reading my articles, would have already observed the reality surrounding us, notice that the world is being changed by certain influential groups of people.

From our perspective, we often judge these changes as negative. We wonder why certain people don’t think about the “common good” but prefer contrariness and wrecking of public order. I also believe, that many of you after talking to your friends and debating, have discovered to a large degree who is behind certain processes. Naturally not all the processes but a large proportion of changes in society, economy and politics. I would like to shine some light on the subject of Jewish collectivism and European individualism. In the latter, I mean central and northern Europe however excluding it southern bits such as southern Italy, Balkans or Iberian Peninsula, as these were under the influence of ethnocentric cultures from North Africa and Asia.

What is European individualism? It is a set of characteristics we are born with and inherited with the culture we live in. It determines a person to be more open to other nations, less solidarity with a group, a bigger tendency to have a small family (husband, wile, children, weaker ties with other members of family). European individualism had a chance to adopt itself really well after the industrial revolution. It allowed the citizens of Europe to grow highly-developed structures of countries based on republican and democratic foundations. Many people were happy to trade belonging to clans, families, tribes for taking part in larger groups which were more beneficial for their position or personal interest. Such culture is more open to foreigners, universal rules for everyone, equality of sexes and similar connections to both father’s and mother’s family. In general, it’s a culture well known to us, Latin based and monogamous. the relationship between a married couple is based on equality (in theory as recently women are in position of power).

In a known experiment, in which babies from Germany and Israel took part, it turned out that the babies from Israel were less tolerant to strangers, they started crying whilst their German counterparts were more at ease. In general, the individualistic and collectivistic characteristics are highly genetic and scientist often come to a conclusion that the ways of life of previous generations had a large influence.

Europeans mainly come from hunters- gatherers, used to make small groups and families and battle with bad weather conditions. They didn’t need a large group to survive but access to resources which helped them survive through winters. Collective cultures originate mainly from shepherds living in Asia. Weather conditions were not the main challenge. They were more focused on fighting between each other and therefore needed groups of connected “units” which tried to make themselves different from other inhabitants in an area. The number of people in a group was important, that’s why kidnappings of women were common. A man could have many wives and he tried to multiply and grow the family tree. These cultures are patriarchal where the position of women is low. The man is the head of the family, dominates and others are more subordinate and rarely defect. If they do, the consequences can be brutal. We all know of bloody historical fights for the soil of Palestine, ethnical cleansing carried out by the winning side, killings of children and women who could not conceive children.

Current Jewish generations originate from these people, regardless of controversies to do with their origins and their genetic dualism (genetically not all are Semites). Their characteristics allow us to categorise them as a collective and ethnocentric culture. It allows them to promote the members of their own ethnic group and they might turn a blind eye to their own group not doing the right things as long as these are aimed at “foreigners”. This is quite particular as it stands opposite to Latin culture. Distinction between “us” and “foreigners” is quite established in the Jewish culture and has been for thousands of years. It is also enhanced by the manifestation of their integrity: specific clothing, pairing up, upkeeping rituals such as circumcision. With this behaviour, the “independence” is kept and the culture is based around this, sometimes even leading to provoking so-called antisemitic behaviours towards their own people, who become too friendly with “foreigners” in order to get them back into the main group.

Since Jews were ramblers, it is strange why they didn’t settle where they originate from. Actually it is known. This is to do with the fact that this land is inhabited by other collective and ethnocentric nations which are not susceptible to their methods of infiltration. Ethnocentrism is a great method of defence against other ethnocentric nations. We don’t have this situation in the Latin culture which as I mentioned before is a lot more open. As a result, Jews could settle in Europe and later in land colonised by Europeans in North America. They could have of both worlds/cultures, being individualists and yet not forgetting their deep ethnocentric cultural roots. This allowed them to promote their interests in a not obvious way as well as promoting other Jews to important positions.

A great example of this infiltration is USA, where Jews as 1st and 2nd generations, on the brink of 19th and 20th century, started dominating in key branches connected with politics and influencing public opinion. They influenced Hollywood, most of the press, political and academic institutions. It is not well known, that other white Americans tried to oppose this, however they were marginalised (as is the case in Poland today). Apparently, this criticism of the state of affairs, also existed amongst military circles before the cold war however the already infiltrated governmental institutions including the justice system allows them to “cut off the head of the fascistic hydra”. A great psychological trick was the creation of phrase “antisemitism” which allows to influence average people who are already heavily influenced by media and the entertainment business.

Due to their influence, Jews in the USA enforced the country to allow migration from other than European cultures, which resulted in permanent and continuous ethnic change and changes in electoral preferences and rise of divisions within the population. This also did away with the ethnical integrity of the nation. In the 20s and 30s there was an open discussion about ethnical integrity of children the white colonisers and the discussion about pros and cons of immigration. In the 60s emotions took over as well as accusations of racism, antisemitism and fascism. Please have a look yourself on the web for the ethnical and cultural changes across 10 years in the USA. What will happen in 30 or 40 years? Will it become similar to South Africa?

Why do Jews try to turn a well prospering culture upside down promoting all sorts of perversions under the umbrella of modernity? Why are they growing a social system where the ones that pay in the most take out the least and the biggest rewards go to the ones who pay little or ones that recently landed on the coast of Italy or crossed the German border? In my opinion the answer is this. They are afraid of us. They are afraid that we will discover their destructive influence on our culture, life, relationships and children. They are trying to turn everything upside down so that there is no strong, ethnically connected resistance. They will “divide and conquer” and ethnically mixed societies of Europe and America will not be able to locate the enemy and neutralise his actions.

First impressions – Infiniti QX70

The Japanese brand Infinity is relatively unknown on the Polish market even though it has a range of products able to compete in the premium sector. The flagship is the QX70.

infiniti_06

The first generation of this giant (2m wide and weight over 2t) had it’s debut a decade ago as an SUV called the FX. In terms of styling, the current model is still a relative of it’s predecessor. Recent facelift was rather mild. You can see the car has not got the latest design trends but will still have a large fan base.

On the inside

infiniti_07

The steering wheel has just the perfect size and is electrically adjustable in 2 directions. Quality of materials used is superb and the front seats, or should I call them armchairs, are great, fully adjustable, heated and ventilated. You can travel all day without getting tired and they also provide very good side support which is also electrically adjustable. Sitting in the back will give you a very much similar impression, as long as there are two people travelling. The cover of the central tunnel by the middle seat makes it very difficult for three people to travel comfortably.

infiniti_13

The boot looks slightly bigger after dismantling the boot cover but numbers don’t lie, 410 l is one of the lowest scores in it’s class. Luckily, there are plenty of storage compartments, cup holders and a very practical electric boot lid. There are three buttons which control this function, on the bottom of the lid, on the dashboard and on the remote control.

Under the bonnet…

infiniti_12

…of the tested car was a 320 bhp, 3.7l V6 petrol engine. This is a naturally aspirated engine providing plenty of power and an acceleration of 6.8s from 0-100km/h. This is one of the best results in this car segment. The work ethic of the engine is very impressive. This V6 with a direct fuel injection and variable valve timing is very quiet and without vibrations. At low speed you can only notice that the engine is running by looking at the rev counter. At higher revs you can hear a very nice grunt. This makes a difficult choice for the driver: do I listen to the V6 or do I listen to the Bose sound system? Back in its days this used to be one of the best audio systems in this class, but even today it can still put up a decent fight.

The drivetrain with a 4×4 provides phenomenal traction. QX has barely any body roll and sits tight in corners, kind of makes me forget the sheer size of the thing. However, it is slightly weaker than the competition when driving through potholes. The inside performs very well in terms of noise level considering the size of the vehicle, the only thing that can occasionally be heard is a distant muffled sound of the suspension.

infiniti_07

The 7 speed auto gearbox also deserves recognition. The shifts are sharp and yet, very smooth. It also allows manual gear changes with the lever but the practicality of this is probably questionable. The automatic setting provides a great reaction to flooring the right pedal and why would you buy an automatic to change the gears manually? The steering is nicely suited the character of the car. Perhaps not the quickest response but still quite direct. You can’t fault anything on the breaks.

Average…

…fuel consumption during the test got slightly above 14l/100km, which considering the size of the vehicle, 4×4 drive and a V6 engine, is a pretty good result. On the other hand, every time your foot gets heavy, the consumption can go up to 20l in the city and 12l outside. Luckily, the fuel tank is 90l providing ample range.

The S Premium spec of the vehicle is adequate to the price (285 000 PLN). You get leather seats, dual zone climate control with vents for rear passengers, 6CD changer, auto gearbox, active cruise control with radar, adjustable shocks, traction control, set of airbags, 21” alloy wheels, sunroof, electric boot lid, bi-xenon headlights and much more. As an option you can go for a 390 bhp 5l V8 engine. The cost is substantial (40 000 PLN) but many clients are happy to pay the price.

infiniti_03

QX is not the newest kid on the block. It is the oldest model in the Infinity range and therefore does not get people as excited as years ago. On the other hand, it is a well thought out and a mature vehicle. It drives phenomenal, it’s different and put together with the highest quality and well priced (competition is more expensive). Lots of pros and three cons. First of all, lack of pneumatic suspension with height adjustment. Second, no matrix headlights available (only a high beam/low bean option). Third, insufficient boot space.

Being honest…

…after so many years the QX does not disappoint but you can see it’s not the newest vehicle. It is a giant still chasing the best Audi Q7, BMW X5, Volvo XC90, Mercedes GLE and Lexus RX. Sometimes it slightly runs out of breath. Let’s see what the successor will bring…

The Polish car industry

The car industry has become one of the most dynamic branches of Polish economy. The number of employees in this sector is rising and the prospects for the coming years are very promising.

In order to fully grasp the benefits of the actual situation we have to go back in time to 2008, when the whole world faced a severe financial crisis. There were some people thinking that our Polish car industry would be left untouched. They were wrong. The global market started to affect our economy as well. Car sales in Europe dropped dramatically which, in turn, had a negative impact on Polish car parts suppliers depending on the EU markets’ demand. Production downtime took place in Volkswagen, Fiat and Opel (Vauxhall) factories.

In Gliwice, where Opel has its own factory, preparations were just being made to start assembling Astra IV when the production process had to be changed and adjusted to the new situation, which didn’t bode well. The management decided to give up part-time workers and stopped outsourcing services. The factory started to operate in a 2-shift mode, instead of 3. The biggest subcontractors like FŁT in Kraśnik, Remy Automotive in Świdnica, IAC in Teresin or MAN in Starachowice, declared severe job cuts. Delphi, Wielton, Wabco and TWR had similar plans. In the worst-case scenario, there were fears that tens of thousands of employees could be made redundant.

The situation now is substantially better. The Polish car industry has been systematically growing since 2014. The production has gone up by 43% and the car parts suppliers have increased their sales by 50%. The export of car industry goods stands at 12% in the overall exports of our country. That is quite an achievement for us. Since the 90’s a lot has changed, new players like Toyota or Mercedes have entered our market. We have witnessed Fiat-Chrysler or Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi mergers, Opel (Vauxhall) has been taken over by the French PSA. Volkswagen and Ford are thinking about a possible alliance as well.

Naturally, factories produce cars to make a profit and the demand is steadily rising in the whole EU. However, it is more and more expensive. Nowadays customers have a greater choice of cars, more deals on new models and their sizes, and prices, are going up from generation to generation. But customers today have become more demanding towards car dealers who have to invest more and more to build new and bigger show rooms to satisfy all clients’ needs. It seems that Polish car dealers are doing quite well.

They are ready to pay a lot of money for commercials shown over and over again on TV or in a variety of other media. At the first glance, those flashy adds suggest that the cars cost “next to nothing” just to attract customers’ attention but they hardly ever tell the truth. And we can have problems with availability if we decide on a promotional offer. It also matters if we are going to place an individual order or the car dealer just needs to have it delivered from the stock centre. In the first case, we have a right to be fussy, nonetheless, we shouldn’t count on a great discount offer. But if we place a special order or agree to take a model that has already been assembled, we are in a position to haggle over prices and negotiate a much better deal. Of course, then, you buy what they currently have in stock so you can’t ask for any extra options on the vehicle. There is also a third choice. From time to time a car dealer owns a model that for some reasons hasn’t been sold yet. Such situations are not very common but in those circumstances a car salesman will be very eager to sit down around a table and eventually reduce the price quite dramatically.

Individual clients most of the time tend to buy small cars, whereas corporate consumers choose bigger ones because they need at least an average-sized vehicle to run their businesses. Especially in the latter case, the tendency is not changing very much. Moreover, this trend should continue as car dealers are preparing special promotional offers for a new Opel (Vauxhall) Insignia or a face-lifted Ford Mondeo. More and more clients are interested in cars that cost over 300 000 PLN. The sales of luxury cars and hybrid vehicles are steadily growing.

Another way of using a car is to pay monthly charges for it. This new form of financing is addressed mostly to individual clients. A driver pays a fee every month and he doesn’t have to buy a vehicle in order to use it. However, no one knows if this trend will be still present and popular in the future. The TCO, the Total Cost of Ownership of a car in Poland is at a quite low level. Actually, Polish people are spending on their vehicles the least amount of money in the EU. However, we need to bear in mind that an average Polish citizen sees and values a 100 euros differently than, let’s say, a German or a Frenchman.

The purchasing power of Polish people is still not very big, that is why they tend to buy second-hand cars. This also goes for luxury cars as well as more affordable vehicles like Volkswagen, Opel (Vauxhall) or Ford. The most popular are German makes and Poles perceive them as rock solid and reliable. But it shouldn’t be surprising; Polish market is being literally flooded with German-made cars.

What the industry now needs is support from the government and fewer restrictions. No doubt about it. There are some signs of slight improvement; Polish drivers are encouraged to choose cars with electric motor or plug-in hybrids as these vehicles will be exempted from excise duties. A promising beginning…
