>>1810> I knew hardcore Christians and atheists that listened to metal. I knew both obnoxious straight-edge faggots and drug users that listened to metal
Your own personal experience =/= objective proof of collective morals and beliefs of one particular group.
What I am looking for when I look for set of beliefs and ideas that one group has is by looking at what "most" of them believes in.
If majority of them believes in something, then that characteristic is associated with that group.
Just because "well I knew that one guy that liked screamo songs about rape and murder but also liked go to church" doesn't mean that it paints the picture of the group collective.
>I knew two Musl1ms from my football team in middle/high school
Does your personal experience OF TWO musl1ms trump the proof of millions of musl1ms surveyed about their beliefs?
Don't make me laugh

>How so? By what standard?
Let's take a thought experiment.
Put a (hungry) musl1m, hindu, budhist, a j3w, a christian and a pagan up to a task. For instance, give them a goal of killing a cow, skinning it and making a meal. There would obviously be in group discussion, bickering, protests about the killing of the cow and HOW it needs to be done.
Now, let's take 6 hungry siberian slavs that haven't seen food since the time they ran away from a gul4g. Do you think they would bicker? Do you they would talk about kosher or not? Do you think they would want to sacrifice something to earth God?
If group is homogeneous, if they have same set of morals and beliefs, if they have same conviction to the task and goal at hand, they will strive to success, they will help each other and themselves.
>If we look at engineering and technological sophistication the US and the USSR were well ahead of the rest, particularly in weapon and space development. Neither nation is homogenous by any standard
Operation Paperclip, Operation Osoaviakhim and strong alphabet soup grip over the nation through fear of enemy (on both sides) pushed the country through the same goal narrative.
But don't forget, this was also the time of great civil rights movements that destroyed the cohesive nuclear family.
>Economically the US, China, and Japan are the largest or most powerful
US because of petrodollar and special interest economic hitmen that control the shadow government.
China because of their debt with US and manipulation of currency.
Japan has more debt that it can EVER pay off, its going in hyperinflation mode.
>The US and China are not homogenous by any standard
US has seen in few past years what this mult1cultural society can create. A lot of riots and lootings.
China is homogeneous, just not politically, but Jiang Zemin holds the party down (even after retirement) by his friends from inside. Xi Jinping isn't such a strong leader, Hong Kong might crack down on his rule.
