The most dangerous demographic segment

Thomas Lifson
Der Spiegel highlights another instance of the dangers inherent in a population of unattached young males unable to find suitable young females to marry them and thereby civilize their testosterone-fired energies:
A new study has found that many more women are leaving economically moribund Eastern Germany. The result is a new, frustrated and largely male underclass. And many of them find succor in the neo-Nazi scene. [....]

Since 1991, more than two-thirds of all those who have left Eastern Germany have been women. The result is that in many towns in the region, there are simply not enough to go around -- some places are missing up to 25 percent of their young women. Even worse, the young men who stay behind are often poorly educated, unemployed and frustrated -- perfect fodder for neo-Nazi groups looking for members.
Charlotte Hays of The Independent Women's Forum blogged a link yesterday and added,
Anthropologist (and IWF pal) Lionel Tiger made a similar point about men and women and terrorism.
I couldn't agree more, and see the same problem in China (and India, too, where females are aborted in far larger number than male babies). But consider this: we are rapidly developing our own large demographic segment of young males unable to find a mate due to the huge disparity developing between males attending and graduating college  and females.

Alex Frasca wrote an insightful and original two-part series (
here and here) on this important and neglected problem more than three years ago. Readers who have discovered AT in the past three years might find this series well worth reading.
