I'm writing this thing about Gypsies. They are in astonishingly bad shape. Everyone hates them and treats them like scum. There's no evidence at all that they are capable of integrating into society even if they wanted to, which they don't.


Culture-fair IQ tests put them at avg. 70 IQ. Their academic achievement is horrifically bad - the percentage completing secondary school is in single digits in most countries - and their unemployment rates often top 40%. You can imagine what the crime rates, birth rates, and income stats look like.

The only country that's had any success at all with them is Finland. The Finns have basically constructed a completely parallel welfare and education system that deals exclusively with Gypsies. The Gypsies are only about a quarter of one percent of the Finnish population, so this was a lot more doable in Finland than elsewhere; in any case, it's just starting to work now after years in place, and it's going to have to be a 100-year project.

Any ideas? I'm fresh out.

We can gather some of my close associates at my lakeside villa and we can hash out some sort of solution.

Yeah leave them to it. by Breaker (2.00 / 0) #4 Sun Aug 09, 2009 at 04:01:30 PM EST
Until they try to drive on public roads with no insurance or driving licence.

Then apply the law.

Simples!

Statute law, or common law? by dmg (2.00 / 0) #6 Sun Aug 09, 2009 at 09:02:55 PM EST
I have a hunch the gypsies will not have any truck with statutes, and rightly so...
