Golden age of agglutinators?
Half-formed thought, mostly writing down for future checking.
Most differences among humans are genetic.
Modern Western idiots have fatally forgotten this basic fact, leading to every possible type of transparently false and dangerous thinking. We require all differences to be ideological, which makes us group all Communists together, all Muslims together, all Christians together, etc.
We also miss a secondary but important classifier, which has never been thoroughly investigated. The type of language
you speak helps to determine your thinking and behavior.
I'm thinking at the moment about agglutinative
languages, because their owners have come into the spotlight in recent times.
Agglutination is the most 'logical' way to build a language. Each grammatical variable has its own unique
marker, and you can form up a verb or noun by mechanically tacking on the appropriate set of suffixes for tense, case and so on. The vowels may be phonetically influenced by previous syllables, but that too is perfectly predictable. Contrast with a degenerate synthetic language like English or German, where only a few grammatical variables have markers at all, the markers arbitrarily take different forms for different root words, and most of the markers can indicate several different things (eg -s in English, which indicates third person singular present verbs, plural nouns of any case, or singular genitive nouns!)
Which countries are the most rational? Which have maintained a healthy culture and
a healthy manufacturing sector? Turkey and Korea.
Turkey and Korea have absolutely no genetic connection, no religious connection, and no tradition of mutual trade and immigration. Yet they share a similar ability to navigate the wild seas of Gramscian destruction and come out on top, without being an imperial bully.
The one thing they do have in common is agglutination. Though their languages have no common vocabulary and no definable common ancestor, they have very similar grammar and structure.
For what it's worth, Finland and Hungary have also shown the same stubborn independence to a lesser degree, and they're also agglutinators.
Japan is the big exception
to this rule. Its language is close to Korean; not quite mutually intelligible but clearly derived from a common ancestor. Japan has lost its culture to a bizarre mix of superficial westernisms, and has lost its rationality to Gaian superstition.
