The same problem is happening in the Western World today with Affirmative Action and Diversity, when you take people like racially inferior Jews and Africans, and neurotic, morally conscientious, empathic, women, whose testosterone levels are much lower than men, and put them in charge of institutions like the media, arts, and sciences, the progress stops and inferior products are produced because they are too collectivist and conformist and place the group above the individual which stunts creativity because time is wasted trying to please others rather then achieving individualistic creative expression which is necessary for the emergence of genius.

Affirmative Action, Diversity, Political Correctness, and Gun Control, which have stifled freedom with increasingly totalitarian regulations, have caused the decline of Western Civilization and in turn the rest of the world which depends on innovations from the West.
