Migrations: a defining characteristic of humans

In today’s modern state-nations, migrations are always depicted in the mainstream as a peculiar event that is not supposed to happen. The norm is to be within the borders of the nation-state we were born in and if we need to move from a nation-state to another, we need to take extraordinary steps.

Why modern nation-states are anti-human and counter-evolutionary

That narrative is an ideological construct that is at the exact opposite of the sensible reality: scientific evidence makes it clear that migrating is an inherent characteristic of the human species.

The current regulations and policies (immigration, border control etc.) are a very dangerous anomaly: human communities were never supposed to stay in the same area nor to reproduce within a closed genetic pool (see the abundant scientific literature on the dangers of endogamy)

All humans on Earth are from the same genus (commonly called “race” in the mainstream): that is Homo Sapiens Sapiens.

The first specimens of our ancestors were so far found in Africa and date back to 320,000 years ago (Man of Jebel Irhoud, Morocco). Modern Sapiens emerged at different spots in Africa around that same period and migrated out of Africa in a considerable amount of waves (yet to be calculated with precision). Every time a group has left Africa for Eurasia or the Americas, they have found an older, “archaic” group on site that they have interbred with, “updating” the population to a more “modern” Sapiens population.

These migration waves are so recurrent it is so far impossible to know with exactitude if the current world population is a mix of all these waves altogether or a later set of waves that has overridden the previous ones.

It is thus absurd, counter-intuitive for humans and counter-evolutionary that the current governance systems have created a structure of land control (nation-states with closed…
