After the article on the Great Replacement in Belgium, I present you the following translation of an article by Polémia on the situation in Switzerland. The Swiss situation is unique, if only because of the country’s objective excellence and exceptional quality of life, and the extraordinary practice of direct democracy. Thus we have the rather rare situation of citizens actually being allowed to vote on whether and in what conditions new people should be allowed into their country.

Make no mistake: the scale of demographic change is also tremendous in Switzerland, but mainly because of European immigration and even Europeans find it very difficult to accede to Swiss nationality (there is no birthright citizenship). Thus Switzerland provides a model how people might preserve a nice country in the future: a highly-selective, citizenist little republic founded on gentrified democratic localism.

* * *

Switzerland has experienced very significant immigration over the past decades. This immigration is a source of fears or even rejection on the part of a portion of the Swiss people. These fears concern basically two issues: competition on the labor market by Europeans and the challenge to the [Swiss] cultural model posed by non-Europeans; all the more so in that, recently, the integration of the non-European population is failing to be realized.

In the face of this, the Swiss authorities’ responses oscillate between openness and firmness. A firmness which is occasionally demanded by the people in the form of the referenda which are regularly organized in Switzerland. Selective immigration is not an empty slogan in this country, even if a part of the political opposition would like the government to go much further on this issue.

Very significant migration flows

Since the Second World War, Switzerland has experienced two significant waves of immigration. The first coincided with the industrial growth of the 50s and 60s. The second began in 1975 and has continued ever since.

After the Second World War, the Swiss government granted many residence permits to mostly European workers in a context of industrial recovery. Immigration was then suddenly stopped with the repatriation of almost 300,000 foreign workers during the economic crisis caused by the first oil shock of 1973. Every year since then, Switzerland has welcomed a rising and significant number of foreigners, in proportion to its population.

Whereas 92,000 immigrants permanently moved to the country in 1981, they were 146,000 in 2018. Net migration (immigrants minus emigrants) has always been positive for the 1962-2017 period. On average 163,000 more people entered the country every year than left during this period. . . .

A growing immigrant population

The foreign population is constantly increasing in Switzerland. It rose from 14% of the total population in 1980 to 25% today. The Swiss Confederation is among the countries with the highest proportion of residents born abroad.

Whereas the country had 285,000 resident foreigners in 1951, there are now 2.1 million. The country’s population meanwhile numbers 8.5 million.

Europeans (Italians, Germans, Portuguese, and French) represent the biggest contingents of the foreign population residing in Switzerland (80%).

The population of immigrant origin (foreigners born abroad, naturalized citizens born in Switzerland, or naturalized citizens and foreigners born in Switzerland with at least one parent born abroad) was estimated in 2017 to make up 37% of the population.

Among the resident non-European population, Asians[1]In these statistics, “Asian” seems to mean “Asians other than Turks.” – Guillaume Durocher (165,000), Africans (109,000) and Turks (67,000) form the largest contingents. According the Pew Research Center, around 6% of the population is Muslim, around 400,000 people. According to Pew’s forecasts, the Muslim population could in 2050 make up between 8% and 12% of the Swiss population.

European immigration

Competition on the labor market between foreigners and citizens as well as the scale immigration have been criticized both with regard to European and non-European immigration. Several agreements on the free movement of EU citizens have been signed between Bern and the European Union since 2000, but they remain contested, in particular by the SVP (Swiss People’s Party). This party has, for many years, sought to annul these agreements. This has raised concerns among people living across the Swiss border, notably many Frenchmen.

Non-European immigration

While non-European immigration concerns only a minority of the population in Switzerland, several warning signs are showing that integration is proving difficult or even a failure for a portion of immigrants.

  • A study by the Zurich university of sciences came to the conclusion that 21% of young Muslims living in Switzerland consider that sharia law is superior to Swiss law.
  • At the extreme of radicalization, a Swiss central Islamic committee has been established with some 3,500 members. The organization has been accused of encouraging its members to engage in polygamy and female genital mutilation. Its members are also being sued for supporting Al Qaeda.
  • Islamic proselytism has occasionally occurred in Swiss schools. Thus in Winterthur, teachers have complained that Muslim students are encouraging non-Muslims to fast during ramadan.
  • As in other European countries, the Gulf monarchies have been accused of flooding Islamic cultural centers with money. One of the authors of Qatar Papers [a book detailing Qatari financing of Islamic activities in Europe] explained in Geneva: “The goal is to take in charge every Muslim individual living Europe from cradle to grave.” The funds of the World Islamic League based in Saudi Arabia “are apparently financing mosques and organizations preaching a Wahhabi form of Islam” according to a professor at the University of Bern. Turkish mosques [in Switzerland] are apparently being financed by [Turkey’s] Directorate of Religious Affairs, a report from which asserts that Islam is superior to Christianity and Judaism, and that religious dialogue is unacceptable. One could enumerate many more such examples. Though Islamism is spreading in Switzerland, the country has many effective “watchdogs” who are active both in documenting these realities and in initiatives aiming to ban or at least reduce them.

A questionable integration

Whether in terms of welfare, crime, or social behavior, many statistics and incidents show that the ‘integration’ of a part of the non-Europeans is an empty slogan.

Referenda on immigration

Swiss citizens have been invited to vote many times on immigration issues. The following issues have recently been subject to referenda in recent years:

  • A ban on the building of minarets (2009)
  • The actual deportation of foreign criminals (2010 and 2016)
  • The end of mass migration (2014)
  • The primacy of national law over international agreements (2018). This last proposal was rejected, even though unchosen immigration (family reunification, asylum) stems from international agreements and treaties signed by the country. As the lawyer J. L. Harouel has observed: “public liberties have been overridden by fundamental rights, which mainly benefit immigrants, who systematically accede to all the rights and advantages of European peoples.”

The expulsion of foreign criminals (2010 vote), the ban on building minarets, and the limitation of immigration all won the required double majority of both voters and cantons. However, the vote against mass immigration did not lead to new rules for the movement of people between Switzerland and the European Union, because of the gridlock of the EU institutions. A new referendum on the subject will normally be organized in 2020.

National preference and selective immigration

Despite significant immigration, Switzerland has long wished to maintain control over migratory flows and protect its labor market. The country’s selective immigration policy is evident in the conditions demanded to come, live, and work in the country:

  • In 2014 Switzerland adopted a rule requiring employers to inform residents of job opportunities in certain fields, before being allowed to look further afield.
  • For non-Europeans, access to the labor market is even more Draconian: there is a genuine national preference here. The employer must prove that no Swiss may be employed if a position is given to a foreigner. Quotas for foreign workers are in place. Integration into Swiss society is also evaluated over time.
  • Selective immigration policy is also evident in the higher and higher qualifications required of immigrants, which facilitates their entry into the labor market.
  • The acquisition of Swiss nationality is very demanding: one must live in Switzerland for 12 years and know the country’s ways and customs in order to claim Swiss nationality. There is no birthright citizenship for second-generation immigrants.

Other initiatives aim to regain control of a situation which, in the eyes of many Swiss, is deteriorating:

  • The Swiss Confederation does not hesitate to deport foreign criminals, as 1000 were in 2017.
  • The Swiss government has not ratified the 2017 Marrakesh Pact on migration.
  • Some cantons, such as Tessin and Saint Gall, have banned the burqa.

On matters of asylum, a tough line is also being adopted:

  • Refugees will no longer be allowed to travel abroad.
  • In April 2019, the Federal Council took several measures to accelerate refugees’ entering the labor market, with a mandatory integration track (language-learning over three years, numbered targets for entry into the labor market, etc).
  • Those whose asylum claims have been rejected are less likely to be authorized to work in Switzerland.
  • Switzerland is remarkable in Europe for the rate of deportation of rejected asylum-seekers: 56% of deportation decisions are implemented, where the average is only 36% in Europe (and 12% in France).

The consequences are apparent: whereas the number of asylum claims is exploding in France, they decreased in Switzerland between 2017 and 2018. More and more rejected asylum-seekers are fleeing Switzerland for France, this especially concerns Eritreans.

In the face of significant migratory flows, the Swiss government has taken measures aiming to increase standards relative to immigration, to reduce immigration, and to defend the natives’ way of life.

The Swiss can, thanks to their democratic system, make proposals and express themselves on issues subject to referenda. They most recently affirmed their rejection of mass immigration. If the concrete measures to actually fulfill the popular will can, on some occasions, be disappointing, the referenda have enabled tougher policies to be adopted.

    Thanks for the very interesting article.

    I’ve always wondered how direct democracy would handle immivasion. In this case, it seems apparent that there was a current or pressure, to which the ballot process was a delayed reaction. And it arguably hasn’t even shut off the spigot, just lessened the pressure a little.

    I wonder how many of the Africans flew direct from Africa to Switzerland. I imagine that most of them actually crossed the border.

    It seems to me that there would be a simple method for solving the biggest immediate threat: racial screening, i.e. making it more difficult for non-Europeans to cross the border, or get welfare, etc. I wonder if there is any legal obstacle to such a question being considered on the ballot, other than international law.

    Direct democracy can only work with a racially monolithic groups. It cannot work in a multi racial society. I think we may see exactly what that looks like.

  3. The article is informative and correct, thanks.

    The deportation rate in the neighboring Baden-Württemberg/Germany is way below the Swiss rate (for sure less than a fifth). Quite a few of those immigrants rejected in Switzerland simply cross the border to Germany. The Swiss border patrol just looks the other way in such cases – and German border control is most the time non-existent at the Swiss-German border.

    Direct democracy can only work with a racially monolithic groups. It cannot work in a multi racial society. I think we may see exactly what that looks like.

    There are multiethnic societies where ethnic minorities get citizenship (US) and others where they don’t (Switzerland). Swiss ethnic minorities are long term foreign residents – i.e. they don’t have political power which protects the identity of the historic Swiss people in their national home.

    But, having said that, Direct Democracy may work in a US style multi-racial society.

    For example Macon County (Alabama, US) has a population of around 18.000 people and is 82% ethnic African. If they operated Direct Democracy, then most of Macon’s (small) tax income would be spent locally (with little Federal contribution) and Macon people themselves would have to set up and run a basic school, health centre, courtroom, police force etc.

    It would necessarily be very simple, but at least they would own it, and they would have a direct interest in it working. Only the system of Direct Democracy itself would be protected by national law.

    Do the Germans realize that the border situation is different now?

    Surprisingly few Germans do realize that there is something happening at the Swiss/German border, German officials even less so. The numbers here are not big enough to count since the official line in Germany has been strengthened by widely accepted Think-Tank pro-immigration heavyweight Meinhard Miegel just last week in the (once conservative!) daily Die weLT: Only mass-immigration can help us fix our domestic problems – not least those of the pension-system! (see my comment in Eric Striker’ Unz-post “Germany’s Forgotten pensioners”).

    On issues of immigration, citizenship and sovereignty, here’s how the voting records of the ‘5 Nations’ of Switzerland rank, from nationalist right to globalist left:

    1) Italians
    2) German Catholics
    3) German Protestants
    4) French Catholics
    5) French Protestants

    There’s a 6th nation, the Romansh, but the sample size is too small as they’re only a 15% minority in a single canton, Grisons, which is majority German Protestant.

    The most nationalist cantons in these ‘national question’ type referendums are Ticino (Italian), Appenzell-Innerrhoden and Schwyz (both German Catholic).

    The most globalist cantons are Basel-Stadt (German Protestant), Geneva, Vaud and Neuchatel (all French Protestant).

    The 3 mainly French Catholic cantons and German Protestant Zurich also tend to lean globalist compared to the national average, with German-French Protestant Bern as the ‘swing canton’, and the rest of the country leaning nationalist.

    The lesson being that if the SVP and allied nationalists can carry Bern in these ‘national question’ referendums, then they should be able to carry the nation as a whole.

  14. Diversinoma is a cancer.

    If you leave cancer untreated, it grows.
    If you feed it, it grows even faster.

    Diversity Cult is a cancer. It says MORE IMMIGRATION IS GOOD, but that means the newcomers will outnumber the natives. Just ask the Palestinians about what endless Jewish immigration did to them. Looking back, any Palestinian saying, “Diversity is our greatest strength” would have been an idiot.

    But Jews convinced European cuck elites to say exactly that, and as they control the media, the dumb masses got to believing it too. They worship their own replacement. They feed the very cancer that is killing them. More blood to cancer cells, less blood to immunity cells.

  15. “Europeans (Italians, Germans, Portuguese, and French) represent the biggest contingents of the foreign population residing in Switzerland (80%).”

    In the German speaking part of Switzerland, Germans with doctors degrees have taken over many middle management and higher paid positions as bankers and engineers. German degrees are less rigorous than the equivalent Swiss ones and since Swiss salaries are higher and in most Cantons their taxes are much lower than in the Fatherland, many Germans have made the move.

    In the ’90’s, after Clinton destroyed Yugoslavia, Switzerland was forced to take in many thousands of Yugo refugees. Many of them were liars and actually were Albanians. The second generation Albanian gangs, known as Schippies (they call themselves that), are a big problem. Both of my son’s were mugged by Schippie gangs, and much drug dealing and petty crime is still committed by Yug0’s, far more than by Italians or the large Portuguese community.

    This really brings an important point to the Swiss predicament compared to the EU: Switzerland never had colonies, and has been blessed by not suffering an invasion of one specific racial minority. There is a wide distribution of races, cultures and languages, and no group predominates, and no tribal gang can predominate.

    Also important is that Switzerland was originally the Helvetic Confederation, and Canton’s have far more autonomy than US states. There are 26 Cantons each with their own tax authority and dialect. In the rural valleys, where the Swiss were still peasants 70 years ago, there is not a lot of tolerance for pampering invading hoardes.

  16. We don’t have to get fancy with stats: after 1400 years it’s well-established mohammedans are crap and ruin anywhere they settle.

    If Swissyland needs people they should be smart and recruit in other White nations. I’m betting there are plenty of American Whites who would love to live there.

    “1) Italians”

    Ticino has close to the highest taxes and the most oppressive government in all of Switzerland. From my viewpoint they have been infiltrated by Masonic crime syndicates and are about as sincere about sovereignty as Berlusconi. I would also assert that they have been far more EU centric than the Catholic central Swiss Cantons like Uri and Schwyz.

    Ticino may occasionally vote left on social and economic issues, but on the National Question they are BASED.

    With regards to the EU, when Switzerland voted 59.6% Yes to allow free movement to Romanians and Bulgarians in 2009, Ticino voted 66.1% No, almost 10 percentage points higher than any other canton. Later that year Ticino voted 67.2% to ban minarets, one of the highest rates in the country.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2009_Swiss_referendums

    Ticino is also listed in the article above (as Tessin) as being one of the 2 cantons that have banned the burqa. There are many other examples of Ticino being especially hostile to the EU, immigration, and Islam.

    Schwyz could probably be considered as the all-things-considered most right-wing canton, but not all German Catholic cantons are that hardcore. So overall I would rank the Italians as the most nationalistic.

    The photo certainly brings back the memories.

    As a kid, I spent a summer at the Institut Monte Rosa which is a short walk from the depicted Château de Chillon

    Later, we lived a mile away at Clarens. Opposite the Villa Salagnon and its island. It was a large farmhouse with a huge garden full of apple trees. The meadow next to us had cows. We used to test ourselves by holding on to the electrified fence. Once, an angry farmer appeared and smacked a Spanish boy by the name of Miguel as he was the one holding the wire.

    Last time I was at Montreux for a conference, the farmhouse had been pulled down. They built a block of flats there. But there were still some of the apple trees. The cows had been replaced by luxury housing. 🙁

    The Swiss media seems to be fairly neutral compared to the nonsense of the BBC, FT and so many others. Here is a sample from today. It is an article explaining how Putin is fed up with the Polish people being told lies about the liberation of Poland by the USSR.

    Poland in the pillory – with his provocative theses about World War II, Putin washes a shameful piece of Russian history white

    Putin has repeatedly accused Poland of being the co-author of the Second World War. He defended the Hitler-Stalin pact as a legitimate non-aggression agreement, downplaying the secret additional protocol. In a concerted, staggered war of aggression, Nazis and Soviets attacked their Polish loot together in 1939

    Polen an den Pranger – mit seinen provokatorischen Thesen zum Zweiten Weltkrieg wäscht Putin ein schändliches Stück russischer Geschichte weiss

    You won’t get anything like that in the German newspapers. OK. It is saying a shameful part of Russian history (it was not today’s Russia) when the real shame is that hundreds of thousands of Soviet soldiers were killed in order to liberate Poland and the Poles persist in denying it. Today’s Poles deny that the Poles welcomed the SOVIET soldiers.

    Regrettably this article contains a number of bad factual errors. To wit:

    1)

    even if a part of the political opposition would like the government to go much further on this issue.

    All major parties are represented in Switzerland’s permanent ruling coalition. It’s not opposition parties but some governing parties which are quite dissatisfaction.

    2)

    Net migration (immigrants minus emigrants) has always been positive for the 1962-2017 period.

    This is not true. During the economic crisis of 1973 & 74, Switzerland expelled foreigners as needed to being unemployment down.

    3.

    However, the vote against mass immigration did not lead to new rules for the movement of people between Switzerland and the European Union, because of the gridlock of the EU institutions.

    This is really bad. The Swiss government travelled the country before this vote saying that voting yes would destroy the country’s economy and bring starvation and homelessness not Switzerland, because limiting immigration from the EU would result in the EU cancelling its other trade agreements with Switzerland that were signed as part of a package. Despite their crap, voters (highly unusually) ignored their advice, concluding that like in the US, immigrants was being used to being wages down and more profits to employers.

    After the referendum to limit immigration was passed, the swiss government was in contact with Berlin, who told them that Switzerland’s percentage of foreigners was out of control and that it was understandable that they wanted to limit immigration. (Before a package of agreements With the EU was approved by Swiss voters, they had been promised that at most 1/8th as many foreigners would immigrate to Switzerland as happened, and that if there were any problems with the agreements, the treaties would be renegotiated.) Berlin green lighted renegotiating the immigration treaty, but then the French prime minister, Hollande told the Swiss that he would veto any renegotiations, officially because any limiting immigration would help Le Pen in coming French elections. I suspect that it’s much likelier that Switzerland’s then foreign minister, a French speaker who subsequently resigned when the cabinet overruled his almost fanatical europhile policies got in touch with Hollande and asked him to veto it, just like the traitor Theresa May asked Brussels to “insist” on harsh demands so that she could tell her party members that “she had no choice.”

    Once the EU announced that it wouldn’t renegotiate, the swiss parliament passed a law that completely ignored the text of the constitution of the initiative. The initiative obliged the government to try to renegotiate and if there was no satisfactory outcome abrogate the treaty. Parliament passed a cosmetic law that obliged extant jobs to be advertised in Switzerland and in the EU, and then declared victory, even though their “victory” was very different from what the constitution demanded. Since Switzerland doesn’t have a constitutional court that lets judges interpret the constitution and discover penumbras, there was nothing parliament or voters could do, except eventually elect a new parliament.

    Now there is a second initiative in the pipeline, that should be voted on this year, which will not give parliament leeway to do what it thinks is best, but rather spells out exactly what must happen. The French speaking foreign minister whose long term goal was to get Switzerland into the EU resigned or was resigned, and has been replaced by a euroskeptic Italian speaker.

    Perhaps most important of all, the EU had previously turned a blind eye to Switzerland fairly blatantly interpreting the treaty on EU citizens in its favor. As wages are higher in Switzerland, any arrangement that lets EU citizens work in Switzerland will invite a lot of fraud, and there is a lot of fraud. Many Italian employers employing Italian citizens in Switzerland are known to pay them the swiss wage swiss law obliges them to to pay (because of the treaties with the EU wages are set by the government) and then on payday, as soon as their wages hit the bank take the employees with them to ATMs and have them withdraw the difference between Swiss wages and Italian wages and hand it over to them. (Parts of Italy have youth unemployment rates of 40-50%.)

    In any event, Switzerland has interpreted the treaties in such a way that erects huge hurdles of EU citizens working for companies registered in the EU to work in Switzerland. They have to announce any activity to the authorities 7 or 14 days in advance so that the government can send inspectors AND deposit very substantial sums that most companies can’t afford as a surety that they’re not going to cheat. And nevertheless, quite a bit of cheating is still caught.

    Were these onerous arrangements to be ended, the standard of living of Switzerland’s working class would nosedive. Until recently, Brussels was happy to turn a blind eye to Swiss shenanigans, seeing the treaties as cheese in the trap that was bringing Switzerland closer to Brussels’ orbit. And then Brexit happened; Brussels notes carefully that Farage and co pointed out that Switzerland was prospering despite not being a member of the EU. The cheese in the EU’s trap had suddenly became a Trojan horse, using Brussels generosity to persuade voters to vote to leave the EU. Brussels now sees its generosity as an existential threat to the EU, and there is no way Brussels will let it continue. And without these measures, it’s very hard for me to see Switzerland’s business elite being able to use hook and crook to get Swiss voters to continue to go along with the these treaties. So far the Swiss government has played for time, time and time again, but eventually that won’t work. Or at least I hope.

    It’s complicated. In theory, as they’re changes to the constitution, they’re absolutely binding. In practice, as Switzerland doesn’t have a supreme kangaroo court to find hidden meanings to the constitution like the USA does, parliament can and on quite rare occasions does ignore or only partially implement referendum results.

    In the 1990s a utopian initiative was accepted obliging the government to send all truck traffic through the alps by train, which would be extremely expensive, but moe life much nicer for the alpine valleys that see basically bumper to bumper truck traffic for most of the year.

    Switzerland heavily even insanely subsidizes trains transporting trucks through the alps, but doesn’t come close to transporting all of them, and the greens are not wrong to complain. Then there are recent votes on immigration…

    Often legislation is left to the Cantons to implement. One example is recent legislation making it far more difficult to heat with heating oil or natural gas. Each Canton is implementing this differently and on a different schedule to be completed by the end of 2021. Some Cantons are already requiring energy audits before allowing old furnaces to be replaced, other Cantons have not even decided how they will implement the legislation.

    Another example would be refugee centers being forced upon various Cantons, often in military Kaserns. Most Cantons reject these invaders, and what follows is a game of hardball until the Canton’s eventually fold. Just as with all the other western countries there seems to be a large group of NGO’s and “Church” volunteers who are helping the invaders and twisting the arms of local people and government.

    Switzerland has a BBC like propaganda organ that produces radio and TV broadcasts. The Swiss people pay $500/year per household in TV tax. Just like with the BBC, the Swiss government programming is heavily socialist and talmudic. The Swiss people recently voted in an initiative in large majorities to continue to be forced to accept government propaganda. I am pretty sure Ticino/Tessin voted to continue being mind controlled by jews and lefties.

    Another example of Swiss people being manipulated into voting on initiatives against their own best interest would be the Gold Initiative from a few years back which would have forced the Swiss National Bank to maintain gold reserves of 20%. This likely would have broken the US dollar paper fiat prison that the world is currently incarcerated in. All the big international banks, NGO’s, and other usual suspects united in a propaganda blitz to get a “no” vote. What was really crass was Thomas Jordan, president of the SNB, going around campaigning for a no vote. The initiative failed by a 80% margin. My guess is that Tessin voted no.

    A guy I worked with had spent over 10 years at the Social Department of Canton Zürich working to make life more comfortable for the lying invaders.

    It was his position that many of them go back to Africa, or wherever, and that when they return they bring knowledge of a properly functioning civilization back with them. His position was that this knowledge was critical for other countries to be able to improve.

    Often legislation is left to the Cantons to implement. One example is recent legislation making it far more difficult to heat with heating oil or natural gas. Each Canton is implementing this differently and on a different schedule to be completed by the end of 2021. So

    There is a huge difference between legislation and initiatives ( Constitutional law) passed by national vote. The comparison is insulting.

    Before long, it all went wrong. A remark by Khan to Thiam’s partner set off a bitter feud between the two alpha males. The guest had insulted the state of the garden, according to a person who was there.”

    I am not certain where these new laws concerning furnaces originated, but I would bet good money (not €) that it originates in the EU. If it had been put to a referendum, likely it would have failed, so likely Bundesrat just pushed down the EU legislation to the Cantons to implement. Likely this was a result of the “Giving the Swiss constitution precedence over international law” initiative that didn’t pass in 2018, and likely this was the reason Swiss Canton’s are being forced to implement EU fantasy:

    You sadly seem misinformed.

    The first initiative to deport criminal foreigners very explicitly stated a goal and tasked the parliament with writing a law that met that goal. As there were other legal issues involved such as the fact that under swiss law you can’t deport people to unsafe countries where they may be tortured, it was unavoidable that the the stated goals and parliament’s law would completely coincide. It is true that different actors wanted to water it down substantially for different reasons such as jealousy and softness, but that doesn’t that the goals and the law wouldn’t have overlapped substantially. There are two initiatives where there is little overlap at all.

    In the end the SVP had the country vote on a law with no exceptions at all, and the country chose to go with a fairly strict version of the first initiative instead.

    As for the minaret; I believe it had been approved or submitted for approval before the vote and therefore wasn’t covered by it.

    Good question.

    The ongoing white genocide in South Africa cannot be understood without knowing how Jews control that country and use South African blacks as a “golem” against the white Boer population — a situation that will eventually be repeated in all white nations.

    With its many banks and international organizations, I would expect Jewish influence in Switzerland to be very strong. That influence would make the will of the majority population completely irrelevant. Assuming it exists, it should not be surprising that even Switzerland is being overrun by the Third World.

    Now, I’m sure there are plenty of white Americans who would be delighted to emigrate to Switzerland if there were a labor shortage there. Apparently, the Swiss people would rather have Congolese and Somalis on welfare than white people supporting themselves and paying taxes.

    That notion, of course, seems so preposterous that it calls into question both the media coverage and the polling and voting results in Switzerland. The laxity on Third World immigration — or even the lauding of it — makes me think of something a friend of mine once sarcastically said to a panhandler in San Francisco: “Wow, thanks! I’ve been looking for you all day long in order to give you my hard-earned money!”

    Another possibility is that the Swiss population has been completely Judaized — thanks not only to Calvinism, but to the Judaization of Christianity in general. In that case, there’s no need for Jews to manipulate the population. It will virtue-signal automatically.

    You take complicated issues with a lot of moving parts and boil them down to very simple analyses that happen to meet your prejudices. I suppose it’s one way to get through life.

    As an example: UBS was caught sending UBS employees from Switzerland to commit crimes on US soil and encourage and help US citizens to commit crimes on US soil. Even worse, the crimes were mostly cheating on taxes; something no country on this planet puts up with.

    As these crimes were organized by UBS employees as part of formal banking activity, that made UBS under US law a criminal organization, which would have cost it its banking license; as it was by a big margin the largest bank in the country, and it wouldn’t have been able to function without a US banking license, Switzerland had a huge problem.

    For reasons I can only guess at, the then finance minister negotiated an end to banking secrecy for Americans rather than an end to UBS. Worse, and probably because of donations from that bank to her party, she didn’t even try to get the criminals involved punished. Did she do the right thing negotiating as she did? I don’t know. On one hand, banking secrecy was already under huge pressure and on its way out, on the other hand, it’s never pleasant to see the people who played by the rules punished better of people who deliberately broke all the rules, as UBS did.

    Yes, Birkenfeld was meeting US clients, and yes that was against the QI-accord (qualified intermediary) tax agreements between the US and Switzerland in effect at that time. Sure, UBS should have been fined, but less than few hundred million for HSBC for money laundering or JPM for rigging gold markets. The takedown of Swiss banking was far bigger plan than merely slapping corruption and fraud on the wrist. Fatca was the international globalist tax blitzkreig that resulted, and it was akin to an international “patriot act”. There is no more financial privacy anywhere in the west, and as far as I can tell you think that is great. And to think that you consider yourself to be Swiss.

    The take down of Swiss financial privacy actually started long before Obama, it was part of the 9/11 PNAC new world order.

    In 2021 Switzerland will stop allowing anonymously owned corporations. This was also done to appease their jewish banking masters in New York. Delaware and Nevada continue to allow anonymous corporations and have vacuumed up all the offshore banking that once was in Zürich and Geneva. The US still does not allow tax information exchange, the Bilateral Agreement Switzerland negotiated is still one way, from Switzerland to the US.

    You myopically seem to ignore the possibility that a person could be both US and Swiss, even possibly living in Switzerland. US law claims anyone born in the US to be a US tax donkey until they pay $2500 and allow themselves to have been “deemed to have died” and paid up all their death taxes, decades before death. Canadians who happened to have been born at the nearest hospital in the US are deemed by the IRS to be US persons and are retroactively subject to US income taxes. Swiss citizens born in the US are are liable for US taxes just the same even if they left the country as a minor. In order to appease their judaic US masters, the Swiss financial system has deprived these Swiss people of their banking rights. Apparently you have never considered Swiss law should apply to all Swiss people equally, especially when they live in Switzerland.

    This shit’s been going on for a long time.

    From Isabella of Spain: The Last Crusader by William Thomas Walsh, Chapter XIV:

    “IN MEDIEVAL Spain the Jews came nearer to building a New Jerusalem than at any time or place since their dispersion after the Crucifixion. Had they succeeded—and several times they came perilously near success—they might conceivably have managed, with Mohammedan aid, to destroy the Christian civilization of Europe. Their ultimate failure was caused chiefly by the life-work of Isabel…”

    “They were not at first persecuted by the Christians; but, after the discovery that they were plotting to bring the Arabs from Africa for the overthrow of the Gothic kingdom, they were condemned to slavery by one of the councils of Toledo. Nevertheless by the beginning of the eighth century they were numerous in all the chief cities, enjoyed power and wealth, and even obtained through bribery certain privileges denied to Christians. That they played an important part in bringing the Saracens from Africa in 709 is certain. In the invading army there were many African Jews. Everywhere the Spanish Jews opened the gates of cities to the conquerors, and the Moslems rewarded them by turning over to them the government of Granada, Seville and Córdoba. ‘Without any love for the soil where they lived, without any of those affections that ennoble a people, and finally without sentiments of generosity,’ says Amador de los Rios…”

    “Hardly had the Mohammedan Arabs subdued and organized the Berbers of north Africa when they were invited by the Spanish Jews to cross the nine-mile strip of water at Gibraltar and possess themselves of the Christian kingdom. The plot was discovered, and the Jews sternly punished. A second attempt, however, was successful at a moment when the Visigoth monarchy was perishing of its own follies. “It remains a fact,” says the Jewish Encyclopedia, “that the Jews, either directly or through their co-religionists in Africa, encouraged the Mohammedans to conquer Spain…”

    OT but these Polish Bolshevik Jews also ended up in the Gulags along with every other type of political activist. However, luckily for them, Stalin had second thoughts and fished them out to form the core of his puppet Lublin occupation government.

    As the newly appointed US Ambassador to Poland, Arthur Bliss Lane, said about them:

    “Unlike some obvious Communists, his appearance (Jakób Berman – Undersecretary of State to the Council of Ministers) gave no indication of brutality or coarseness. I was to learn that he was one of the Kremlin’s principal agents in Poland – one of the men who directed the puppets…. On many occasions, when I could not secure action from other government officials, I went straight to Berman.”

    “The real directing force within the Army came from General Spychalski, a lithe, quiet-spoken, non-military looking officer whose training had been in Russia. Semitic in origin, he did not have the physical appearance of the average Polish officer. At political meetings of the armed forces it was he and not Zymierski who made the important address.”

    “Of all the cabinet ministers on whom I was to call, I had been most anxious to meet Mr Stanislaw Radkiewicz, minister of Public Security…. If his customary technique, as we had heard, was to instill terror into the hearts of his callers, to us he showed great cordiality and urbanity. He was a good looking man, apparently of Russian Semitic origin, with carefully combed oily black hair, a keen, mobile, aesthetic face…. The Minister said that at the moment no Americans were under arrest in Poland, and he could assure me that in the event any Americans were arrested, he would see to it that the Embassy would be advised at once. The promise was never carried out….. This was the first and last time that I was able to see Mr Radkiewicz… “

    Not long ago such a stance would be seen as the insanity it surely is, but decades of mass-media programming have ensured that this insanity is now considered the only decent path to take.

    In classic SJW fashion, they never worry about the long-term effects of the policies they promote–that’s for others to worry about. They’re in it for the ‘warm feeling’ they get inside, which they’ve been trained to perceive.

The US, even with all its Bilateral FATCA agreements made across the planet, including with Switzerland, still refuses to exchange tax information and instead coerces a one way flow of private wealth information from the rest of the world to the US. The US refused to sign on to the OECD tax information exchanges that Switzerland has agreed to. All of Europe has agreed to these OECD rules (very unfortunately).

    As far as money laundering goes every major Swiss bank has been forced to implement AMDOCS, a derivative of the Epstein/Maxwell/Mossad promise software, to finger “money launderers”. This is incredibly expensive software that has to be managed by a highly trained Swiss specialist, or dozens of worthless Indian “programmers” in Bangalore. Swiss banks also are forced to employ expensive name recognition software to filter out PEP’s, “terrorists” and “white nationalists”. All this expensive software is necessary to appease the true money launderers at the Mossad, CIA, IRS, Bank of England and the FED.

    Delaware and Nevada still allow anonymous shell corporations that will be phased out in Switzerland in the next year. US persons cannot even open a bank account in Switzerland due to the draconian IRS penalties and threats of sanctions.

    Then there were the Panama papers where hundreds of super wealthy jews and their shabboz goyim pets were caught massively evading taxes and yet to my knowledge not one has been charged.

You hysterically have decided to smear Switzerland and call it “slavery”. It is my guess that you are the same ethnicity as the author of the smear piece named Isabelle ((Eichenberger)).

    Back in the mid 20th century, after suffering through the poverty and starvation of two world wars for Israel, most of Switzerland, especially the dirt poor rural Cantons, could not afford a platinum plated CPS run by professional pedophiles. Children were turned over to a Swiss version of a “foster family”, which usually happened to be a family farm that needed labor resources, or even raised by the church (heaven forbid!).

    Even to this day in many Cantons the children of farming families are allowed numerous afternoons off from school when the weather is nice to help their mountain farmer parents bring in the hay. These same children can be seen all year round helping their family hay, milk and care for the cows, even driving tractors and operating other dangerous mechanical equipment. For fun, some teenagers even strap their parents SG-90 assault rifle on their back and ride their bikes to go target shooting. Compare that to Tranny library story hours in the US.

    During the war years most rural Swiss children were taken out of school after primary school to help fill their fathers shoes anyway, their fathers (not mothers) having been drafted and sent to defend the frontier.

    As far as the two other wiki articles you linked to go, they two were likely written and editied by Christian hating jews.

  61. Once upon a time (2006-2012) I was what people in Ticino (Trotzdem Italien as it is affectionately known) and Lombardia call a frontaliere. Basically an Italian citizen employed in the cantone who was still living on the Southern side of the border.

    I commuted every day from Milano to Lugano, an exhausting 100+ miles round trip, to work in one of the small alternative asset management companies that dot the Ticinese financial landscape: in my case it was a hedge fund giving out leveraged loans for PE-backed acquisitions in Asia, a business I founded together with some partners. I swear the God i’m not trying to brag, what I’m trying to say is that I didn’t come across as either a confrontational Wall Street asshole (the world of Continental Europe asset management is way more subdued than the equivalent in the Anglosphere) or as a third world savage.

    I was at the time already well into my 30’s, a divorced and then remarried single father, with no visible vice or addiction, basically a fairly introverted dude quite far from your typical Italian stereotypes. For instance I was entirely uninterested in boosting my social life and meeting local women. I thought I was going to be perceived as relatively well dressed and groomed without being flashy, respectful and overall decent guy from a few miles South of the border.

    So it was to my bitter suprise at the time that I encountered widespread hostility that a couple of times verged on physical aggression just because of my nationality. Mind you, I’m 25% ((())) a factoid I dropped quite a few times in the environment just to test the reaction: there was none, only an incessant barrage of venom directed at Italians. Oh my current wife is a South Korean woman, who at the time was living and working in Lugano: at this point it will be of no surprise to anybody to find out that she encountered none of the abrasive ticinese style that was part of my daily life.

    No this is not a woe is me piece of whiny entitlement as over the years I’ve come to understand and fully justify the unpleasant attitude of the Italian speaking Swiss population. I regard in fact those years not only as extremely fruitful professionally, and overall a very happy time, but also a decisive step in my life in the direction of my current views of immigration and race relations.

    In fact Switzerland to a certain degree represents a unique outlier when it comes to the flows of inbound immigration she receives. Basically it is the wealthiest and most expensive nation in the world clustered inbetween much larger and poorer economies replete with surplus qualified workers. Italy is a blatant case, and at the time my country was just at the inception of her downward spiral into economic chaos, but even France and Germany were not in such a great shape with after-tax wages no higher than 50% of the equivalent Swiss bracket and scores of young or youngish underemployed graduates.

    So most of the border areas of the country ended up being flooded with qualified or relatively qualified workers who crowded out the locals and significantly drove down the wages in many attractive areas of employment. Not only that: the frontaliere phenomenon made sure that basically very little benefit was trickling down to the ordinay Swiss citizen as people like me basically collected their income in Switzerland and spent the bulk of it at home: a full-fledged parasitical relationship, for want of better words.

    This phenomenon explains why, at least at the time, third world immigration from the racially alien global lumpenproletariat seemed like a distant concern for the Ticinesi: most of their resentment was directed and vented at far more immediate concerns. Imagine for a second if in the US the numbers of H1B Indian techies and Mexican laborers were switched: that was basically the situation back then and there.

    I have no idea if a decade later Switzerland joined the rest of Europe as another target for the bantu conquista, last time I visited Zurich was during the summer of 2017 and it seemed still a very safe and orderly place.

    In northern Switzerland the frontaliere are called “grenzgängers”. In the ’90’s when I was working at Roche in Basel half of the office lived in St. Louis or Freibourg. I certainly do not recall anyone exhibit any arrogance or put downs. It was a very international in a white Christian international sense.

    Later in my career while working in IT in Zürich the proportion of German’s kept increasing. When Switzerland signed onto Schengen, all the non-EU IT specialists disappeared. Even the IT contractors dumped their Aussies and Americans and more Germans filled their place. That was until about 2007 when the Indian offshoring and outsourcing boom occurred. Many European contractors had their positions or contracts terminated and they were replaced with Indians from Infosys and Wipro. Hoardes of Indians started arriving, and I walked off a project when they demanded I train my replacement from Bangalore. Many of these Indians have managed to convert their A or L work permits into B and C long term work permits. This is a gigantic mistake in my opinion, even bigger than allowing Indians to work in Zürich when Americans and Aussies IT specialists were not.

    I will also mention one other foreign invasion I experienced while working in Zürich. It was after the financial crisis of 2008 and the IRS take down of Swiss banking. At this time there was also the passage of Sarbane-Oxley. Between the E-mail forensics demanded of virtually all Swiss banks, and the necessity of implementing costly US compliance software, Zürich became flooded by US lawyers. Swiss banks were forced to pay for all of them, and they took over the fanciest hotels like the Dolder in Zürich. Luckily thinks have settled down, but all the large banks have swollen compliance departments staffed by expensive US lawyers. These lawyers also are able to pass on their FATCA compliance costs onto their contracts, getting the law firm to pay for Price Waterhouse or Deloitte to fill out the outrageously complicated US tax forms for expats.

  63. @Ship Track

    I’ve read some of your posts about FATCA: very insightful and hell they do bring up memories. I had a couple of good buddies at the FINMA who between 2007-2010 looked like they aged 15 years in a mere 1000 days. On top of American arrogance I would add EU as one of the major contributing forces to the shakedown of your country financial system with Sarkozy and Tremonti being particularly brutal. In our case we basically had to liquidate our Italian clientele as our main banking partners, providing both custodian and money market services told us they were not going to keep doing business with us if we didn’t severe our ties with Italian investors.

    Mai I ask you what segment of IT is your specialty ? I remember in the financial services racket already a flood of pajeets in lots of middle office software projects back then.

    What appears to have been happening lately is that the almost exclusively youthful Black African males, who arrived in southern Italy by free boat taxi service operated by well-funded do-goodie organizations that picked them up from their inflated rubber rafts just outside the Libyan coastal waters – so they don’t have to travel very far – tend to work their way north after their arrival on land. I saw many of them just hanging around in front of the central train station in Milan a few months ago, getting high, always under police supervision, with officers sitting inside their vehicle parked nearby.

    Since the previous Austrian government had cracked down on these migrant attempts to head through Tyrol, a popular alternative route was to take a train from Milan through Switzerland to Basel, from where they would take the street car to Germany; then they would take the train farther north. Many get off the train at the first bigger city, Freiburg, a university town with a Green Party mayor. The mantra there with the population, especially students, is probably still “Refugees Welcome“. No surprise, I’ve read that gang rapes, knife attacks, and murders have gone up considerably there. Didn’t you know, a substantial segment of Germans are self-hating?

    Those migrants who can speak French may attempt to mingle in Lausanne and Geneva, which have more substantial African populations than one sees in Zurich.

    I was involved with projects that were offshoring work to India for a decade. In the beginning (aughts) I worked with some very talented Indians who spoke English well. Some were from IBM IIRC. As the years passed more and more less talented and less educated Indians arrived, often messing up projects and corrupting management.

I’ve wondered how many of those Poles who immigrated to the US were actually Jews.

    Direct democracy doesn’t work.

    It ends up becoming universal suffrage, where women vote, or other people who are not competent vote.

    All of life is hierarchical. The form of hierarchy that works is a PATRIARCHY.

    Women, as soon as they divorce, cling to the state. The State becomes their sugar-daddy, and worse, they vote for men with guns (the police) to do their bidding. Part of the Western disease, and having globo-homo run things is because in-group Jews, divorced women, and feminized men vote. Blacks also tend to vote their self-interest, which lends weight to the assertion that you need a monolithic single race population.

    There are large swaths of the population who are not competent to tie their shoes, much less vote on weighty matters. Incompetent people and divorced women are terrible decision makers for a civilization.

    People that keep shilling for direct democracy are out of their minds (in my opinion). Please, stop and think about things for even a few seconds. It is hard to overcome a lifetime of false conditioning.

    An alternate solution would be to allow WOMEN to pick MEN through some sort of process. See
    below video for how this Amerindian tribe does it:

    Women then have feedback into hierarchy by way of their selection process for men and men only. (Yes, Amerindian tribe in video can also select women, but I am suggesting that would be forbidden.)

    Women have to have some sort of say-so in civilization, but they need to be limited because modern history has proven they are not a guarantor of high civilization, but the opposite.

    Women who have psycho-sexual problems, are often the ones shilling for a immigration of dusky-men in the vain hopes of having her sexual-fantasy and security needs met. These type of women will vote for the state to give her and her new paramour sustenance.

    It’s too bad that competent women cannot move upward into the top rungs of a hierarchy, but the more competent ones can organize down low at the council level.

    The Amerindian tribe (of video) seems to be pretty good at keeping psychopaths out of their governing hierarchy. And I would venture to guess, immigrants would not be able to show up within their civilization and demand gibs.

    The people who will actually vote for “patriarchs” in a hierarchy have to be limited to competent men. Competent men vote for the men who adult women have already sanctioned.

    Original Greek demos was of learned and competent men. Today’s Western form of democracy is money influencing outcome of the polity, so a natural aristocracy of competent men is thwarted. Competent men don’t even want to run for office in today’s upside down Jewed world.

    Is it no surprise that U.S. and much of the west, is a Kakistocracy (rule by the worst people) of Oligarchs who use their money to maneuver the polity? Soft headed people are easy to dupe and maneuver with propaganda or buying their vote to then effect an outcome.

    Is it no surprise that the illiberal democracies of Hungary and Russia are out-performing liberal democracies of the west? These illiberal democracies are “more” patriarchal, but still too feminized and too weak for my liking, but the point stands -they are protecting their borders, cultures, and histories by keeping undesirable people OUT.

    Monied in-groups are self interested, and often use Usury to steal from the people, to then maneuver the polity.

    Monied in-groups shill for immigration of low cost labor so they can steal labor value, thus keeping capital ascendant over labor.

    A natural aristocracy is not one of monied elites, it is of competent and accomplished men in various fields. Competence and accomplishment have only been conflated with money accumulation in modern times.

    the [popular] vote against mass immigration did not lead to new rules for the movement of people between Switzerland and the European Union, because of the gridlock of the EU institutions.

    The EU – which physically surrounds Switzerland on all sides – has been abusing its massive influence to force Switzerland to accept migration of NON-Europeans (mostly Third World Muslim men) from other EU countries, especially Merkel’s Germany.

    The EU’s desperate efforts to accelerate the immivasion of NON-Europeans show who is really the master in Europe – the same shadowy cabal of billionaires and NWO afficionadoes who have been hard at work for decades undermining what is left of the Constitution in the U.S.

    Jews again? They were only starting to get equal rights in Europe themselves, but were already manipulating poor innocent Whites into caring about the Negro?

    Napoleon emancipated the Jews, giving them the same rights as non-Jewish citizens. However, to conclude from that fact that Jews had been oppressed by non-Jews in Europe is only possible if one is ignorant of history.

    Jews were not oppressed, they were privileged. They were “the king’s possession” and under his protection. They were allowed to form their own exclusive communities under their own laws. They were members of the royal court and served the king or prince as tax collectors and treasurers. They were exempted from military service.

    Jews have always allied themselves with the powerful and done their dirty work for them. It is no different today. The problem for unscrupulous rulers today is that the Jews who used to be their servants are now their masters.

    So what was the significance of Jewish emancipation in the nineteenth century?

    It wasn’t an emancipation of the “little Jews” from mistreatment by the non-Jews. Rather, it was an emancipation of the “little Jews” from the heavy hand of the big Jews. They gained the rights of ordinary citizens and could no longer be oppressed by their rabbis.

    Why do Jews have more capitol in general than white people? Is it geography (They live in cities of power and wealth) or IQ (High normal) or emphasis on money?

    Why are Jews more likely to be moneyed elites than whites? Why are whites overall less capable of making money? Why are whites overall more likely to be poorer and less educated?

    I agree, Switzerland is a police state, but not like any other. First of all, there is no federal police force, only Canton. It is the same with the tax collectors and tax rates between Cantons vary enormously. When you throw in the cultural differences between the language groups there is always the chance of moving to another Canton if the one you live in treats you poorly. In the German speaking part of Switzerland the policing is performed by the Swiss people themselves. The Swiss are always watching their neighbors to make sure that they obey not only the laws, but also that they conform to Swiss sensibilities.

    One reason Switzerland has fared better than most of the rest of Western Europe is because they were so late giving women the vote. After two generations it is clear that most of the corrosive socialist policies have originated from the female vote.

    My wife’s boomer aged cousin is still furious with her dead father because she was a first wave feminist and he was a typical patriarchical Swiss man. He once asked her how much money she made (working part time after the children had gotten older). After she told him he said to her:

    “No woman has business earning that much money”

    In the world he grew up in a man needed the salary to support a family. In Swiss companies it was normal for family fathers to be paid more than an equivalently skilled single man, or especially a single woman.

    Maybe many decades into the future, but there’s no sign of this automation and AI revolution yet on any large scale. Litter still needs to be picked, shelves still need to be stacked, tables still need to be waited, buses still need to be driven, even in a technologically advanced country like Switzerland and most of the rest of Europe is even further behind on this.

    The need for low wage menial labour in countries like Switzerland is so high that by the time automation and AI technologies have advanced enough that they can replace manual labourers, the demographic damage resulting from mass immigration will have already been done. What a country ideally needs is its own native class of manual labourers, a situation like in Switzerland where all the natives expect to be part of the managerial class and earn large salaries is not desirable from a demographic point of view.

    When it comes to money laundering, Switzerland is leading the way.

    Money laundering? I doubt it. Money laundering generally requires a taxable vehicle within the jurisdiction in question. People use places like Switzerland to park money that is already out a particular jurisdiction. Banking for for people outside their nation is not a crime.

    Racism in Switzerland is deeply entrenched in the Swiss German population.

    Good. It means those people are moral and wish to keep their land from Arabs, Turks, and Africans that have already spread over too much of the Earth, making it variously hellish and unproductive. What is your point, exactly?

    Israel and Israeli supporters play their role by directing racism toward Muslims, using TV and fake news.

    Is highly doubtful that the Islamic population is innocent and doesn’t deserve much if not all of what is directed toward them. After all, they follow a religion, along with the Jews, that mandates a takeover of the places they inhabit. Moreover, the Arab and Turkish nasties that comprise most Islamic populations do indeed tend toward higher crime rates.

    Regardless, they have no place in Switzerland nor Europe and every moment in it is temporary privilege. If they were smart they would not be complaining about the attention that is directed their way, but fully appreciative of every moment when it is not. Because if there were justice in this world, in every moment it would be.

    For example, the majority of crimes committed in Switzerland were by East Europeans, not Muslim refugees. Muslims (and Africans) are blamed for everything wrong.

    See above. Neither Muslims nor Africans have any place in Europe. We will deal with the slavs after the larger threat is gone.

    Both are right wing and anti-Muslim tabloids specialising in fake news and anti-Muslim propaganda.

    There is no such thing as “anti Muslim” because Islam is inherently imperialistic and hostile. Every action taken against it is justified, and we will still pay it back in full for changing Spain and its original inhabitants forever. Not to mention pay it back for Central Asia.

    If all the Ethiopian and Somali “youth” and working age men hanging around all day with nothing to do weren’t bad enough, the bling and loot that the Swiss government and NGO’s give them is even worse. It completely outclasses that of the ordinary Swiss working people, who have to struggle to pay the high rents, taxes and cost of living. The hijab covered women always have new prams to push their babies around in, their kids always have new bikes, and all of them can afford smart phones and their expensive subscriptions. A Swiss family of 4 trying to exist on the salary of a single working man would have to struggle to get by cutting every corner.

    In Switzerland there is no socialized medicine, but these invaders never have to worry about insurance or the amount of effort required to find a suitable and inexpensive policy, let alone paying the monthly premiums. There are no taxes they have to pay (Switzerland doesn’t withhold, so everyone except invaders has to do their yearly taxes). They have no giant retirement deductions from their pay and apparently the state doesn’t think that they need to worry about who will feed them when they get older. They don’t have to deal with land lords because the social department finds their apartments for them and then pays the monthly rent for them. They are provided enough pocket money to pay for shopping carts full of expensive Swiss foodstuffs (a shopping cart full often runs into the hundreds of dollars here, especially if you buy any meat).

    But what really pisses me off most of all is how they all seem to be able to afford the incredibly expensive public transit. It costs around $20 to take a train between two neighboring towns, and bus and trolly fare in a city is likely $5 for 1 hour or a few stations. Yet these black and moslem invaders, who cannot even speak the language let alone read it, can afford to take public transit all over the place while the Swiss are hard at work (they have the longest hours in Europe). Afterwards they are likely to hang out at the train station drinking long beers.

    The Swiss Kalergyites have been on a campaign to shame train and bus conductors who demand to see the tickets of these foreign invaders, there are several YT clips of passengers harrasing the conductors when they ask black people to show their tickets.

    If it’s like a lot of places the settlers/colonists are being imported into (by diktat) they are being provided free of charge with monthly passes for public transit by ‘social services’ and ‘charities’.

    Unless there’s been a change in m/o, the Swiss themselves are likely being the one’s forced to pay for the bulk of it.

    As for ‘mass immigration’, in a perverse form of ‘people power’ it has long been used as a very profitable and effective political weapon by elites and hangers on, these elites either being corrupt elements of one’s own, and, or, elements of the elites and hangers on of alien people(s).

    ‘..the immigrants usually serve three main functions: cheap labor to replace native groups, settlement in the ‘frontier’ (periphery), and control over the natives and their land. These dynamics generally result in the maintenance of hegemony..’

    “the Swiss themselves are likely being the one’s forced to pay for the bulk of it.”

    With the credit boom and negative interest rates both the federal and most cantonal governments have been running surpluses. The SNB has been forced to print trillions of CHF to keep the franc from bubbling and destroying the numerous small and middle sized manufacturing base of Switzerland. Tourism too is very dependent on exchange rates. Austria, Italy and France are all much cheaper for a tourist.

    After printing CHF and buying FX to drive exchange rates down, the SNB started buying foreign stocks and bonds. It has a massive portfolio of US unicorn stocks which are now in a massive bubble, and the SNB has large paper gains. As a consequence Swiss communities and cantons are fighting and demanding a dividend representing their piece of the action of the US FANG/Unicorn bubble.

    In short, for the last few years there has been enough gravy flowing that the tax payer has been shielded from the building cornice of snow waiting to crash through Switzerland like one of the old avalanches.

    I don’t regret one word. Please challenge me on specifics. Everything I said can be backed up by facts easily available. I am not getting real counterfactual arguments, because they would be weak at best.

    Economics is political economy. I’m in my lane.

    The reason you see Arab and African immigrants on trains in Switzerland(and Germany) so much,is,they are going from town to town to collect welfare under different identities.They are welcomed without any ID`s,one refugee center(in Germany)had to call the plumber every day,the reason?The toilets were stuffed with passports.The plumbers had to actually sign non-disclosure agreements before getting the job.I am not making this up.
    The up to date record was 42 identities,held by one Arab.Some ministry in Germany said this will not be penalised.Iam not blaming the immigrants for trying to take advantage,but Europe is done.

    All third world immigrants scam the system. They don’t see anything wrong with it. Where they come from it’s just part of everyday life. They do it with health care too. Their doctor will send a bill to the authorities for fictitious services and the patient and doctor split the check.

    .

    At some point the US stock market bubble is going to burst, and probably done deliberately too in a top down affair as some think has been the case going back at least to the time of the Great Depression.

    Hopefully (at least) a lot of individual Swiss and US citizens will find a way to shield themselves from much of the results.

    Switzerland sounds to be a very nice place. Maybe I’ll have a chance to visit some day.

    Credit Suisse launched an internal probe, prompting some to speculate that Thiam might be dethroned. But the investigation into the spying saga eventually cleared Thiam of any knowledge or involvement, while the full burden of responsibility fell on his COO.

    May I? Yes, I know who else wanted Jews to take showers. I know a lot about it because I am living in the country with most of the places with showers. And you know what? I can’t tell you what I know because it is against the law! Hmmm, why there are laws preventing people from discussing the history?

    “For non-Europeans, access to the labor market is even more Draconian: there is a genuine national preference here. The employer must prove that no Swiss may be employed if a position is given to a foreigner.”

    This used to be the case in Britain, in the seventies.
    I had to prove that a Brit could not do the job before I could be hired, even though the employer wanted me specifically.
    My prospective employer convinced the ministry that they needed someone with my language ability.

    ” Didn’t you know, a substantial segment of Germans are self-hating?”

    Well, if that is the case, it is no wonder, given that the Germans have had to shoulder 150% of the blame for both WW1 and WW2. It has been open season on hating Germans ever since WW2.

    A travesty. Now they and the Poles are trying to shift the burden to the Soviets.
    What a joke. No one dares hold the Poles to account for WW2 and Jew hatred.
    The most famous pogrom outside of Russia in Kritallnacht, in Germany.
    No one knows about the many pogroms that took place in Poland, and about Poland’s eagerness to join up with the Nazis in dismembering Czechoslovakia.

    “Women who have psycho-sexual problems, are often the ones shilling for a immigration of dusky-men in the vain hopes of having her sexual-fantasy and security needs met. These type of women will vote for the state to give her and her new paramour sustenance. ”

    Wow, Mefobills, stick to your beer, which is mefobills.
    Not females.
    You have a pretty big passel of “psycho-sexual problems” your own little self!!

    Why is toxic semitism invariably accompanied by virulent, unreasoning anti-White hatred?

    Just curious.

    Thank you kindly for your labour. It’s truly a heartbreaking article. When Marshall Law was instituted in Warsaw I was interesting in settling there. Family obligations didn’t abide by such thoughts. I figured my “pidgin” German could be mastered and I’d still be in Mother Europe’s home. I’d be able to visit the cafe life of Prague, Vienna… Back then no one even dreamed that the neokonski destruction of Middle East countries would induce an invasion of Western Europe. Thank you for your work.

    Not too long ago, some stinky jews were kicked off an airline flight leaving from Detroit.

    The jews insisted that they were not stinky, but other passengers complained.

    The airline purchased hotel accommodations for them and they were able to complete their flight back to Miami the next day.

  110. “these people do not understand toilets and refuse to use them except as repositories for tin cans, garbage, and refuse . . . They decline, where practicable, to use latrines, preferring to relieve themselves on the floor.”

    “where, although room existed, the Jews were crowded together to an appalling extent, and in practically every room there was a pile of garbage in one corner which was also used as a latrine. The Jews were only forced to desist from their nastiness and clean up the mess by the threat of the butt ends of rifles. Of course, I know the expression ‘lost tribes of Israel’ applied to the tribes which disappeared — not to the tribe of Judah from which the current sons of bitches are descended. However, it is my personal opinion that this too is a lost tribe — lost to all decency.

    “This happened to be the feast of Yom Kippur, so they were all collected in a large, wooden building, which they called a synagogue. It behooved General Eisenhower to make a speech to them. We entered the synagogue, which was packed with the greatest stinking bunch of humanity I have ever seen. When we got about halfway up, the head rabbi, who was dressed in a fur hat similar to that worn by Henry VIII of England and in a surplice heavily embroidered and very filthy, came down and met the General . . . The smell was so terrible that I almost fainted and actually about three hours later lost my lunch as the result of remembering it.
