I define groups of value as groups that provide meaningful value to its members, sustainable over generations. First I will consider groups that fail to meet this criteria.
While Islam seems to have a lot of potential, Muslims do not implement Islam in a way that provides meaningful value. This became particularly clear with their response to the covid lies. If Muslims have a reformation then they may become a group of value, but they aren't one today.
Christians also fail as a group in spite of Anabaptists succeeding. No other Christian subset provides meaningful value. And the Protestants are probably unsustainable.
Unlike western nations, the Chinese and Russians are probably sustainable. But they fail to provide much value to members because they do not have the high level of group commitment needed for strong cooperation. This is why their standard of living is unlikely to ever be very high.
Now I will look at the groups of value starting with Anabaptists. Not all Anabaptist churches provide value (they have liberal churches) but many do. They have high commitment to their church and conference (group of churches). They uphold moral standards and generally have a decent standard of living.
Jews have a high level of commitment to their own group which allows strong cooperation. This is true across the variations of Judaism which means that even degenerate liberal Judaism still provides value to its members. And this is why Jews have a high standard of living.
The Japanese are unique in having a high level of commitment at the national level. They also feel a commitment to the business that they work for. These things enable cooperation and a high standard of living.
Are there any other groups of value? I don't know of any.
Re: Groups of Value: Anabaptists, Jews, and Japanese
It seems to me that all those groups have their problems. Anabaptists rely on a surrounding functional society to live in. Mainstream Jews are parasitical and will expire when they either kill their hosts or their hosts finally get their acts together and do something about them. Japanese seem to be expiring from a mix of a kind of misplaced traditionalism and feminism.
