#3 As I've said before, malanthropy is intrinsic in the Arab male. Generations of harsh survival in an environment of feud, communal enmities, coups and bloodshed. The religion of islam was created only to justify these traits and weaponize them. It contains an institutionalized ideology of hatred, deception, crime, plodding gradually toward conquest. It is the ultimate Asshole Manual.

The lack of civic honesty in many countries could be simply due to economic reasons (like India). Also honesty of citizens is often directly proportional to the honesty of the governments themselves. But in islamic nations, no amount of progress or transparency has been able to reform the average delinquent muslim.

Well anyone who isn't Nordic (there's that Lutheran thingy several hundred years ago). Even they are starting to fail as well in dealing with the consequence of the influx of Islamists into their lands. What problem?

#5 where people voluntarily refrain from opportunistic behavior

Why would a normative concept inherent in one culture be anticipated in another?

#6 You may be dubious about the hbd interpretations, but hbdchick had some interesting maps of different cultural features across Europe and the Middle East.

IIRC her hypothesis was that close cousin marriages bred attitudes of stronger family ties and weaker ties to the wider society.
