Is cousin marriage corrupting?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

This is one of 25 selected researches of the year in Canada. They found that cousin marriage corrupts societies. What do you think? Does cousin marriage harm societies?

Interesting. Nepotism is alive and well in the USA. Guess the number one factor that determines if one become wealthy.... drum roll... if their parents are wealthy, they are wayyy more likely to become wealthy. It's almost a prerequisite.

It is no surprise that there is more corruption in developing countries than in the Western world. There are a boat-load of factors, not just clans and cousin marriages. Their findings are dubious. Did they consider countries like Venezuela or Columbia? N. Korea? Trust me, all governments are corrupt. Some are just more successful at it than others. 

If they wanted much better data, they would not compare Middle Eastern Countries with Canada. That's like comparing Mars and Venus. The researchers should compare apples to apples; the population should all be within the same culture. What were they trying to find? Doing crazy comparisons between cultures allows one to come to any conclusion under the sun.

The research found that cousin marriages corrupts governments?  You could say that the research, such as it is, found a correlation between the two, but a cause?  I don't see the evidence.  Even a correlation between the two is not evident by what has been presented here.  Corruption in government is too complex to be narrowed down to one cause.

I live in Canada and didn't know that they think like that.  Weird. Let's hope they don't find me corrupted
