Finland is the happiest country in the world—so claims a report published in mid-March by the UN Sustainable Solutions Network....

Until recently homogenous and safe, the former Swedish colony and then Russian Grand Duchy is being convulsed by the phenomenon of Muslim “refugees” grooming and gang raping under-aged Finnish girls, centred around Oulu in Finland’s north. Finland is in shock that the authorities and media colluded to cover up the scandal and that Finland’s fanatically pro-immigration and out-of-touch political class continue nonchalantly exposing its daughters to gangs of Arabs, as I have reported before....

In The Silent Rape Epidemic: How the Finns Were Groomed to Love Their Abusers, Edward Dutton, who is Adjunct Professor of the Anthropology of Religion and Finnish Culture at Oulu University, reports all that I did and updates it,...

Why has Multiculturalism taken over Finland with such incredible speed and ferocity? It may be no coincidence that the two activists who rocked the boat are, genetically, only half-Finnish. Most of Dutton’s research is in evolutionary psychology, and he argues, in part based on original research by himself and his research team, that the reason can be found in the Finns’ unusual evolutionary history.

Evolved to an extremely cold yet stable ecology, they have been strongly selected for high intelligence. Dutton shows that the average IQ of the Finns, based on very large and representative samples, is about 103, three points above the average for European countries and close to that of Japan. He presents evidence that they have the fastest reaction times in Europe (these being a robust negative correlate of IQ) and the highest percentage with a polymorphism that predicts high IQ.

In addition, Dutton presents evidence of Finns being very high in the personality traits Agreeableness and Conscientiousness, both of which allow the development of highly cooperative groups, being part of which is vital for survival in a harsh ecology....

The result: a terrible double-edged sword. Intelligence predicts being trusting, cooperative, altruistic and community-minded, as does Agreeableness and Conscientiousness. This creates a safe, if dull and conformist, society. But it can also be “weaponized” against the Finns....


From Amazon's summary of the book:
... In 2003, the northern Finnish city of Oulu was what foreigners imagined such a city would be: calm, quiet and very "Finnish." By December 2018, the whole country was convulsed by Oulu's Muslim Child Grooming Scandal. A gang of Arab "refugees" were up in court for the sexual assault and rape of under age Oulu girls and it transpired that Finland's politicians and mainstream media had done everything possible ­ guided by the divine light of Multiculturalism ­ to cover it up.
How could a country like Finland ­ stereotyped as nationalistic and culturally conservative ­ have embraced the Multicultural suicide cult so rapidly? In The Silent Rape Epidemic, Dutton argues that the explanation lies in Finns' evolutionary past. Adapted to extreme cold and predictability, they are fiercely intelligent, extraordinarily cooperative, highly rule following, silent, and socially anxious. This makes them naively trusting, conformist and prone to imitating others. Perfectly adapted to their environment, these traits are combined with a miniscule gene pool, meaning very few intelligence or personality outliers who might dare to challenge the Spirit of the Age. The intense Darwinian selection to which they've been subjected, and their late industrialization, has delayed the rise of nihilism, which arises when nations industrialize and selection pressures are weakened. But the nature of Finnishness means that Multiculturalism has now overwhelmed Finland with astonishing speed. However, all is not lost. Dutton finds that if the Finns truly want to save the Suomi of sauna and Sibelius, then they are, ironically, uniquely well-adapted to reverse their country's destruction.
