The article at
provides a description of a common historical event. An "inferior" or
weaker culture disintegrates when placed in contact with a stronger
one. This is also exactly why many overseas Muslims fear America
so: America is the embodiement of a huge panoply of disrupting
and degenerate cultural influences. That's why the U.S. is explicitly
"The Great Satan", the tempter, and not described as some ordinary
enemy. ("Stronger" cultures may dominate "weaker" ones in the sense
that lack of cleanliness dominates cleanliness: if you mix dirty water
and clean water, you get dirty water.)
"In response to the report, the government announced it will ban
alcohol, confiscate pornography and withhold welfare payments
from families who fail to make sure their children attend school."
So what's new in their culture? Drugs? No, although alcohol is
probably much more potent and certainly is unfamiliar (and so
would take many generations to accomodate to). Pornography?
Probably not. School? Certainly. Traditionally it was the
families that decided what children did, not governments.
