    What if Everyone on Earth Returned to Their Country of Origin? Exploring Historic Human Migration

    What if Everyone on Earth returned to their Country of Origin? Exploring Historic Human Migration

    What if everyone on Earth returned to their country of origin? Today we're going to be reviving a concept for a hypothetical thought experiment I conjured up a few months ago, and looking at the history of recent human migration, and what it would look like if it was reversed.
    The main points argued in this video:

    - Europe would become heavily overpopulated with many people of European descent leaving the New World. Its population would basically double to 1.4 billion. 40 to 50 million non-Europeans would leave Europe. Countries like Ireland, Scotland, England, Wales, Spain, Portugal, Norway, Albania and Italy allegedly all have more people of their ethnicities living outside of their nation than in it. The most dramatically affected would be Ireland, whose population would increase by 600% followed by Scotland with 250% and Wales (115%). Countries like the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand would contribute to the large influx of people into Great Britain and other European Germanic countries. The Latino nations of the Americas would contribute to the influx into Spain, Portugal, Italy and other Romance countries. Portugal would have one of the highest population densities in the world which would essentially turn the entire country into one huge city. The biggest impact in Europe would be in the West as historically there was a higher emigration rate among Western Europeans to the New World than from Eastern Europe. The new largest nations in Europe would be Spain (273 million), Russia (154 million) and Germany (151 million).

    - North and South America would lose a considerable amount of its inhabitants with hundreds of millions of people leaving to Europe, Africa & Asia with 19% of the population of 195 million out of a billion of the population (of Native American descent) left behind. The US and Canada would be most affected by this hypothetical exodus and become the most sparsely populated in the world with only around 5 million left afterward. The largest country in the Americas left after this purge would be Mexico, at 45 million people followed by Brazil at 25 million. Most of Latin America would have a huge chunk of its population ripped away, however, compared to the US, all Latin American countries have a medium to large contribution of Native admixture.

    - 100 million people would go to Africa, 40 million to Asia, 20 million to the Middle East

    - Multiracialism made the thought experiment more complicated; the author decided to basically break them up into their components, e.g. if one is 50% White American, 25% Native American and 25% African-American, 25% would remain in North America, 50% would be added to Europe and 25% would go to Africa.

    - A certain % of Native American ancestry that exists in the Mestizos of South America, Pardos of Brazil, etc. would also be left behind.

    - Africa would also be heavily impacted receiving an influx of African-Americans from the US, North Africans from Europe and Mulattos from South America. The estimated 100 million Africans in the US would be going to either West or Central Africa, with Nigeria experiencing the largest overall growth. The Maghrebi nations of Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia and Libya all have over 10% of their nations' populations living outside of the continent, mostly in Europe, so they would also receive a large boost in population.

    - The Middle East would also receive a large boost from repatriation especially the Levant with the large communities of Lebanese, Syrian and Palestinian descent all being located in Latin America plus the Syrian refugee influx in Europe. After this movement, being that most of the early Arab immigrants were Christians, Lebanon would become a Christian nation once again gaining over 8 million people, nearly tripling its population. Palestine and Syria would also gain a large number of Christians from millions of the Assyrians and Arabic speaking Christians that migrated to the Americas in the past. However, because the Gulf countries have such a large number of immigrants they would lose a huge chunk of their population to South Asia.

    - South Asia would gain a large number from repatriations around the world however because of their already astronomically large populations it wouldn't affect the proportions as drastically as the other regions. The areas most affected by emigration have mostly been on the coast or in the South with 59 million people of South Asian descent scattered throughout the world.

    - East Asia is similar to South Asia as it has an absolutely monumental population although there are still large diasporas of East Asians around the globe. Korea would increase by 7 million ethnic Koreans and Japan would increase by 4 million and around 85 million ethnic Han Chinese would be repatriated from outside the People's Republic of China, mostly from Taiwan, the Americas and Southeast Asia especially Singapore.

    - Southeast Asia would also lose a large chunk of its population because so many people in Thailand, the Philippines, and Malaysia have full or partial Chinese ancestry, however when taking recent global diasporas into account the Philippines would gain about 5 million people, Indonesia, Vietnam and Thailand all around 2 million each.

    I always wondered what the effects of repatriation would be. I've considered returning to Europe but it's way easier to fantasize about than to do. There's definitely a strong urge to return to the motherland within me

    The most affected continent would be Europe. But Europeans don't have to be repatriated. They established their own countries in the colonies. A mass migration of Colonials to Europe could prove catastrophic to our continent, while continents like North America would remain empty. Colonials should be proud of their countries and not try to be something they're not. As for mixed people, they could fit in Brazil, it's a triracial country. Africa also has plenty of room.

    This should give a more realistic image to Americans who want to "go back" to Europe and think it's all milk and honey there. Europe is already overpopulated and 50 million non-Europeans is a lot. That's the population of several countries put together. Europe is full, but if it should allow any migration, it should be done strategically. For example, if Saxony has a dangerously low birth rate, it would only accept immigrants of Saxon descent from the diaspora, then would come other nations with Saxon substrata, such as the Netherlands or England.

    I've always thought it to be a bad idea for (most) Americans in particular to return to Europe, after living with some of them for my life. I think we already have enough negativity or infighting amongst us and I try to keep it mellow, so I'll refrain from getting into my reasoning for it.

    In my own personal case, not everyone that lives in the states is an 'American' . I'd have to talk about my parents' background, where they came from and what my childhood was like to give a better understanding. To retain my anonymity, let's just say that I don't have any family here and returning home makes more sense for me

    If I find a girl to marry here, then I may stay, though I could also just bring her back to Europe with me. It could be the other way around too. If I do stay, I hope the girl I end up with comes from a good family because I have none here and it's hard making it on your own. I don't really have any friends either, even after all these years. Long story!

    We'll see how it all turns out...

    I agree. Head, thorax and arms to Europe, a leg and half the abdomen each to North America and Africa, respectively. That's definitely the most just way.
    Most people think as they are trained to think, and most people make a majority.
