For folks to poop on: East Asia, India and Africa (part II)

(Part I, Part II, Part III)

What is the best indicator of a civilization's health? Some might say current account figures, GDP or the trade deficit; others might seek out travel advisories or National Security color charts for insight; still others might take a clue from pollution levels or quality-of-life ratings. But what about poop?

Poop delivers little information about exports vs. imports. It cannot give you a stock report. Moreover, poop does not indicate whether a jihadist migrant is likely to blow you up on any given day. But poop - especially the human kind - is a health hazard, and a lot can be determined based on whether a society is covered in it or not. Take, for example, the situation "on the ground" in East Asia, India and Africa, which is examined below in part two of our three-part investigation.

Part II. East Asia, India and Africa

As some may already know, certain areas of East Asia, India and Africa have a reputation for sewage-filled slums awash in trash, where inhabitants defecate in the streets. That reputation did not just fall from the sky. Even China still has people pooping on the streets:

And there still is not any consensus about it:

In 2012, a YouTube commentator posted a video about public urination in China. The video attracted responses from a number of people who seem to be aware of China's open defecation problem:

Critics will note that the great majority of open defecation sightings in China seem to involve children, and many incidents are probably emergency-only, followed by some degree of clean-up. But let us depart from China for a minute and continue with our investigation, because things are about to get ridiculously absurd very, very quickly:

Nearly all of the photographs above were taken in Nigeria and India, countries that boast two of the world's fastest-growing populations. Having seen the images, you will not be surprised that Nigeria and India have issues when comes to open defecation in urban areas. As documented in a 2016 Atlas / WaterAid study: 

Of course, open defecation does not make for a healthful environment regardless if it is in a rural zone or an urban zone. Telegraph India provides us with the following data pertaining to the current situation in India:

Aware of the hazards of public defecation, the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) started a website designed to increase sanitation awareness and get people excited to use the toilet. With the same goals in mind, UNICEF helped to put together a major animated public service video. The video is too long (TRT: 4:08) to feature, but those who may wish to view it in entirety can do so by clicking here. For the rest of you, I offer the following clip from Jimmy Kimmel Live! in 2015, which includes part of the animated work and Kimmel's critical commentary, transcribed below:

Per the video (0:51-1:12):
Kimmel: [laughs] w-why must this (not defecating anywhere at will in the open) be taught?

[boisterous laughter]

Kimmel: This is - so I guess the cartoon didn't work because people are still doing it and authorities in, uh, 
Ahmedabad (India) are now planning to pay people to use the toilet - for real [...].

The idea of getting paid to use the bathroom so surreal, I wanted to be absolutely certain this was actually a thing before I wrote about it. But I found several sources explaining Indian "paid-to-poo" policies (1,2,3), and even an indication that such policies existed as early as 2008; that said, take a moment to let the reality of the situation sink in: people are indeed getting paid, by the government, to use a public toilet; meanwhile, in Europe, you often have to pay a fee to use a public toilet and, in some cases, the city government is the party collecting on that fee. So, basically, we are paying to use what some Indians get paid to use and, while the Indian government is losing money because of an interest in sanitation, ours is turning a profit.

At this time, however, India does not have the funds to pay its people to use the toilet - after all, India has a population of over 1.7 billion people. So where is all this money coming from in order to support "paid-to-poo" initiatives? As it turns out, our governments showers India with around 3.1 billion in development assistance each year, which is our tax money put to work. In other words: we are essentially the ones paying Indians to use the toilet.

I am sure most Westerners are not against this policy, particularly when the media presents Westerners as the ones who should feel guilty for draining global resources and holding the less-developed world back in sweatshops as our global-warming and pollution supposedly turn their land into a sun-scorched, toxic death trap. But when all the pay-outs and incentivizing can barely get the "blameless victims" of this narrative to do as little as use a toilet to help the environment and improve public health, the narrative starts to crack apart.

Likewise, trying to get people to not take a dump wherever they wish is so gut-wrenchingly primitive, even the most seasoned apostle of global universalism is probably uncomfortable addressing or rationalizing it. Deep down, I imagine that even the most hardened one-worldist in the West is struggling with him or herself, because he or she knows that Westerners became aware of the importance of hygiene a very, very long time ago, and their wisdom about toilets was successfully passed from community to community and down from generation from generation, all without the need for government or financial incentives.

In fact, even before toilets, Western man had discovered that it was advantageous to bury and isolate his waste to preserve his health and health of the community. Demonstrative of this legacy, in 2017, excavators uncovered a Viking outhouse in modern-day Denmark said to date back around one thousand years. Westerners in that time subsequently came up with pit latrines, bucket toilets, bog barrels and all sorts of other takes on the concept of "defecating somewhere and concealing it". Various civilizations also had the drive to experiment with the idea of waste removal and, to that end, the Romans introduced aqueducts and metal-piped plumbing as many as two thousand years ago.

Yet here we are in the 21st century, handing out money and experimenting with catchy jingles to win over those who would otherwise just squat and defecate wherever, regardless of the consequences. At some point, even the most ideology-hardened globalist philanthropist has to be shaking his or her head, if only because the demographic they are trying to reach - the one with people content just to shit everywhere - is the same one breeding like rabbits, and the primary force pushing the global population to its limits, from 1.7 billion inhabitants in 1907 to an anticipated 10 billion by 2050.

India, Nigeria and Indonesia...where have I seen those names before?

Oh, right:

Looks like we are going to be busy:

According to this Rice Institute report, in 2012, the open defecation problem in India was growing worse in some areas while improving in others:

A decade later, we see the Indian government indicating that all but the city of Bengal are "open-defecation free" and the efforts to stop open defecation have been a success. But is this the street-shitting equivalent of Bush's "mission accomplished" speech about the Iraq War?

A few months before the government's report, an investigation suggested that the "war on open defecation" - I kid you not - had been "futile". And, regardless of what is going on in India, sources have delared that Nigeria's campaign to end open defecation is failing.

It is important to be aware of the government's agenda with its near "mission accomplished" statement. The funding might stop coming in if the efforts to combat open defecation were revealed to be failing. Likewise, think about what would happen to the Indian currency, which is valued based on where people suspect India is headed as the world's largest population. Think about what the understanding of a success fighting open defecation means for foreign investors, and for the confidence that people have in the government.

All in all, it is anybody's guess where India is really heading as a civilization. But regardless where that is, we are probably not going to hear a lot about it from Western mainstream media. For one, India remains a hole that we are throwing money into and, since 2016, that is the sort of thing that the globalist-funded media realizes it has to be very careful reporting on. Since 2016, we have seen the rise of Brexit, Trump, the Yellow Vests (Gilets Jaunes), Salvini, AfD and Bolsonaro - events all tied to, and representative of, the growing dissatisfaction of the masses with the actions and policies of the globalist class. These events have all demonstrated that there is no guarantee Western man will remain passive and non-disruptive amidst wasteful spending in India or, worse, that which starts to look like an extortion scheme.

Unlike in the past (RIP 2015), even with Jimmy Kimmel Live!, I suspect that every report or on-air joke is now evaluated as a potential liability that could mainstream or instigate dissatisfaction with the globalist class. As long as that is the case, Hollywood, and the news entertainment media (influenced by the money and monied-interests of the globalist class) will likely proceed with caution. After all, the last thing the globalist class wants is Western man discovering the environmentally-destructive behaviors of Indians which undermine the guilt-narrative directed at the West. Similarly, the last thing the globalist class wants is reports of bureaucratic ineptitude by the Indian government or its population, or Western man being reminded that he is literally paying Indians to take a dump; both undermine the "one race, one earth" mindset towards India, and push the public to want a pathway decided independent of the teachings of global universalism and the interests of the globalist class.

Of course, there is more that the mainstream media could choose to report about India than just its poop problem. Take, for example, the story of Bangalore, India's booming tech metropolis. A city of over ten million, Bangalore boasts one of the highest-educated populaces in the world and is ground zero for home-grown mega corporations like Tata Motors and Infosys.

But something tells me the Western media best tread carefully when examining this city and others like it. In fact, that is true even if the success of these cities and their growing economic power becomes the force that generates the revenue necessary to stamp out open defecation in India. You see, over the years, Bangalore, Hyderabad and other Indian cities have quietly become the host to a long list of offices and plants that major, Western-based corporations had outsourced there. Aware of India's cheap real estate, America-comparable corporate tax rate, low-wage expectations and market potential (with a population of 1.7 billion, est. 3 billion by 2050), these Western-based corporations could not betray their formerly-native work force and economies for India fast enough. Here are just a few of the guilty parties and what they had built en route to carrying on their operations in India:

Hewlett-Packard (Bangalore)

IBM (Bangalore)
Fun fact: IBM now has more
employees in India than US

SAP (Bangalore)

Daimler (Chennai)

Microsoft (Gurgaon)

Microsoft (Hyderabad)

Xerox (Gurgaon)

Canon (Gurgaon)

Cryobank (Gurgaon)
Fun fact: this is actually a sperm bank
once based out of California

Amazon (Bangalore)

Amazon (Hyderabad)

Amazon (Mumbai)

Expedia (Gurgaon)

Unisys (Bangalore)

Volvo (Gurgaon)

Apple (Hyderabad)

Intuit (Bangalore)

Bosch (Bangalore)

Adobe (Noida)

Nestle (Gurgaon)

Unilever (Bangalore)

Cisco (Bangalore)

Intel (Bangalore)

Pepsico (Bangalore)

A bitter pill to swallow if you are an American or a European and this is where your job went.

The level of betrayal by these Western corporations is simply mind-boggling. It just goes to show that, to them, our people are nothing but pawn pieces in economic opportunity zones, while the world is but their game board.

Needless to say, we have come to the other reason why the globalist-financed and globalist-serving media best tread very carefully with its India news  (and probably why all the "look what that company is building now" news clippings above come from obscure, foreign sources rather than mainstream sources). All that outsourcing from Europe and America to India is at our expense and, in part, what is transforming America and Europe into India as its people become jobless. The irony is that, as India's tech scene has grown, it has attracted comparisons to Silicon Valley in California; throw in India's warm climate, and you might really have what conjures up images of California. But California, as we will see next, is making previously-unimaginable "progress" towards bridging the gap in its comparison. For California, that's shit - literally.
