In National Review, Christopher Caldwell reviews Dr. Stephen Smith of Duke’s African’s Studies department new book The Scramble for Europe: Young Africa on its way to the Old Continent:

The Coming Migration out of Sub-Saharan Africa
By CHRISTOPHER CALDWELL, August 8, 2019 10:24 AM

… If Rome and Berlin have been transfixed by a nautical incident involving only a few dozen African seafarers, it is for a simple reason: There are a billion more where those came from. And how Europe addresses African migration is going to determine what the population of the continent looks like a generation from now.

Since the turn of the century, Europeans have been faced with the most basic question about their future: whether they have one. In some countries — especially Italy, Germany, and Austria — the native population has been shrinking for decades. Birth rates have fallen so low that each native generation is about two-thirds the size of the last. …

The population pressures emanating from the Middle East in recent decades, already sufficient to drive the European political system into convulsions, are going to pale beside those from sub-Saharan Africa in decades to come.

Last year Stephen Smith, an American-born longtime Africa correspondent for the Paris dailies Le Monde and Libération, now a professor of African and African-American studies at Duke, published (in French) La ruée vers l’Europe, a short, sober, open-minded book about the coming mass migration out of Africa. The most important book written until then on the subject, it quickly became the talk of Paris. It has now been published in English.

Smith begins by laying out some facts. Africa is adding people at a rate never before seen on any continent. The population of sub-Saharan Africa alone, now about a billion people, will more than double to 2.2 billion people by mid-century, while that of Western Europe will fall to a doddering half billion or so. We should note that the figures Smith uses are not something he dreamed up while out on a walk — they are the official United Nations estimates, which in recent years have frequently underestimated population shifts.

The closer you look, the more disorienting is the change. In 1950 the Saharan country of Niger, with 2.6 million people, was smaller than Brooklyn. In 2050, with 68.5 million people, it will be the size of France. …

In our time the scholarly virtues — detachment, erudition, logic, graceful writing — strike certain partisans as unhelpful, even offensive. European political issues, like American ones, are increasingly matters of “values” and “rights” — whatever you call them, they are not up for negotiation. Immigration may be the most difficult of these issues because it is also an argument over whether or not one side of the debate should be authorized to bring in political reinforcements, in the form of the immigrants themselves. We can now see that those who desire more open borders enjoy an intellectual advantage, too: the ability to block discussion. For, once migration is considered a nonnegotiable right, what end can it serve to start talking about costs and benefits, or simple facts? What innocent explanation can there be for desiring an open debate in the first place?

Read the whole thing there.

CHRISTOPHER CALDWELL — Mr. Caldwell is a contributing editor of the Claremont Review of Books. The Age of Entitlement, his history of America since the Sixties, will be published in January.

Meanwhile, the Washington Post wants to block discussion of population:

Two mass killings a world apart share a common theme: ‘ecofascism’

By Joel Achenbach August 18 at 11:22 AM

Before the slaughter of dozens of people in Christchurch, New Zealand, and El Paso this year, the accused gunmen took pains to explain their fury, including their hatred of immigrants. The statements that authorities think the men posted online share another obsession: overpopulation and environmental degradation. …

In recent years, the mainstream environmental movement has moved strongly in the direction of social justice — the opposite of what hate groups seek. Now, the leaders of those organizations fear white nationalists are using green messages to lure young people to embrace racist and nativist agendas.

“Hate is always looking for an opportunity to grab hold of something,” said Mustafa Santiago Ali, a vice president of the National Wildlife Federation and an expert on environmental justice. “That’s why they use this ecological language that’s been around for a while, and they try to reframe it.”

Mustafa Santiago Ali looks like a real nature lover.

You can tell by the shape of his mustache that he must be constantly disappearing into the wild for weeks at a time with only the barest minimum of essentials that he can carry in a rucksack.

You know he worships animals and the wilderness by how he grooms himself like John Muir rather than, say, like The Jesus, the child-molesting bowler in The Big Lebowski or like Gaff in Blade Runner.

Ali, the environmental justice expert, said he often hears people say population growth is the big problem today, and he shoots that down.

“My response to them is, ‘Who are the people we need to limit?” …

Mustafa Santiago Ali, where have you been all the years I’ve been scrounging for iSteve Content??? You look like a one man iSteve Meme Machine! Well, you and your sidekick Al:

Thank goodness the environmental movement is in the trustworthy hands of guys like Mustafa Santiago Ali.

    He looks like he had his cats declawed.

  2. …vice president of the National Wildlife Federation…

    If I were eating a grilled cheese sandwich right now, it would be coming out through my nose.

    BTW what is “environmental justice?” Is that like when a momma bear rips you apart because you got too close to her cubs? Or is it when you get killed by lightening because you stayed at the top of a mountain too long while a storm approached? How about when you freeze to death on Mt. Everest because the weather turned and you don’t belong there?

    It could, you know, mean when a people have had enough and start fighting back at the strangers who are invading their environment… And tarring, feathering, and running out of town the well-mustachioed asshats who have been telling them how to live and who to let in for far, far too long…

    Yeah, maybe it would be a good idea to mull over this environmental justice thing…

  3. The population of sub-Saharan Africa alone, now about a billion people, will more than double to 2.2 billion people by mid-century, while that of Western Europe will fall to a doddering half billion or so.

    Is there any way to ensure the survival of European people and the perpetuation of traditional European ways of living and thinking other than what seems obvious: that those doddering half billion string out a few thousand miles of razor wire and chain-link fencing, and then machinegun anything man-shaped that approaches from the south?

    It’s a bummer to think about.

    There is no way to assure the survival of European civilization. NO WAY AT ALL.

    White women will NOT stand for any borders or barriers — to Eat/Pray/Love right at home. Lots and lots of desperate and horny African men? That’s an aging fatties dream. See Mutti Merkel. Or a power bottoms’s dream. See Emmanuele Macron.

    Europe is over. Its already filling up with Africans. Salvini is finished, he’s going to be lucky to stay out of jail. The Left will agree to any coaltion to keep him out of power, and the Five Star Movement can’t get enough of Africans to satisfy their aging fat White women voters. Judges will likely jail him for life, and then some.

    What we need is WAR. Bigly. Nukes flying and cities incinerated and radioactive and starvation and plagues and the like. The only way to stop America (Europe is already toast) from an African Tidal Wave is to make it so unattractive that not even Africans will come here. Heck a lot of Hispanics would leave for Mexico and Guatemala and Honduras. A War with China would probably do it.

    Yes, we’d lose New York City. San Francisco and its gays. Chicago and its vibrant culture. Baltimore, Detroit, etc. But at least we would be us. Not just tax slaves for African immigrant masters.

    Caveat: enough Africans flood in quick enough and Putin might just figure he instead of Africans should own places like Rome and Paris and the South of France. However … its an open question if he’d side with the Africans and simply help them exterminate the natives, or the natives and help them kick out the Africans. My guess, he’d probably side with the Africans. He’s ex KGB after all.

  21. syonredux says:

    The tricky thing is figuring out how many of these Africans will want to come, and how many Europe can accommodate. Smith lays out several ways to estimate the size of the flow. For the sake of comparison, he notes that between 1850 (when Europe had 200 million people) and World War I (when it had 300 million), Europe sent 60 million people abroad, most of them to the United States. Mexico had 30 million people in 1955, saw its population double to 60 million by 1975, and sent 10 million people to the U.S. in the generation that followed. Today, 37 million Mexican Americans make up 11.2 percent of the U.S. population. So what will happen in the next 30 years, as Africa’s population doubles to 2 billion? It is anyone’s guess, and Smith uses figures cautiously. But he notes that if Africa’s development were to proceed on Mexican lines, Europe’s African-descended population might reach 150 million by mid-century.

    The population of sub-Saharan Africa alone, now about a billion people, will more than double to 2.2 billion people by mid-century, while that of Western Europe will fall to a doddering half billion or so.

    You know, Europe is entirely crowded enough, and 500 million people is mor than enough for any continent. This notion that we must forever increase our numbers is pernicious. What we need to do is prevent ourselves from being swamped by those who can’t or won’t control themselves. This involves hard choices, apparently, because very few seem up to making them.

    Those Who Purchased Professional Diversity Network (NASDAQ:IPDN) Shares Five Years Ago Have A 97% Loss To Show For ItAugust 15, 2019

    Long term investing works well, but it doesn’t always work for each individual stock. It hits us in the gut when we see fellow investors suffer a loss. For example, we sympathize with anyone who was caught holding Professional Diversity Network, Inc. (NASDAQ:IPDN) during the five years that saw its share price drop a whopping 97%. We also note that the stock has performed poorly over the last year, with the share price down 55%. Furthermore, it’s down 60% in about a quarter. That’s not much fun for holders.

    We really feel for shareholders in this scenario. It’s a good reminder of the importance of diversification, and it’s worth keeping in mind there’s more to life than money, anyway.

    Because Professional Diversity Network is loss-making, we think the market is probably more focussed on revenue and revenue growth, at least for now. Generally speaking, companies without profits are expected to grow revenue every year, and at a good clip. That’s because it’s hard to be confident a company will be sustainable if revenue growth is negligible, and it never makes a profit.

    In the last five years Professional Diversity Network saw its revenue shrink by 4.1% per year. While far from catastrophic that is not good. If a business loses money, you want it to grow, so no surprises that the share price has dropped 51% each year in that time. It takes a certain kind of mental fortitude (or recklessness) to buy shares in a company that loses money and doesn’t grow revenue. Fear of becoming a ‘bagholder’ may be keeping people away from this stock.

    The graphic below depicts how earnings and revenue have changed over time (unveil the exact values by clicking on the image).

    The original motto of the Sierra Club was “Atoms Not Dams”.  Who infiltrated (and took over) whom?  Are you willing to be called “racist” and answer back, “yeah, so?  Screw you and the horse you rode in on.”  If you aren’t, you’ve already lost.

    The Republican party, meanwhile, should at least pretend to care more about the environment

    Unless the Republican party is willing to bankrupt its big-money donors who provably do NOT care about the environment, it will lose that battle also.

    It shouldn’t be hard to battle the Demonrats who import millions who obviously don’t give a damn about the environment they came to, nor the environment they left.  That makes a good case for keeping these environment-trashers out, and send the ones here back where they came from.  But first you have to be demonstrably serious about the environment!

    Excellent piece by Christopher Caldwell – as usual.

    In the article, Caldwell alludes to the tangential phenomenon of the left – the main immigrationist voice in Europe – benefitting politically from the mass third world immigration into Europe. Ultimately, this will mean permanent left wing rule in Europe – and full hard core Marxism being the status quo in Europe, as the left unfettered by the need to make a show of ‘moderation’, will have the confidence to show its true colors. The Corbyn phenomenon in the UK is but a foreshadow of this.
    So, it must be remembered that in the political calculus, one side benefits mightily from the acceptance of permissive massive immigration policicies, and hence has an *enormous* incentive to persist in the path of a third world Europe.

    A perfect manifestation of the distilling right and wrong in America to the collective interests of whites. Ali doesn’t for a moment consider that the migration would occur because those places would be overpopulated which is a pretty bad deal for the people living there as well as the countries that become the migrants targets and, of course, the environment.

    All he sees is that the policies would also have the effect of sparing white countries of more immigrants and this is inherently evil and wrong even if the reason would be because West African countries wouldn’t be overpopulated economic and environmental disasters.

    He also seems oblivious to the population control that was systematically introduced to every place on Earth in the 70s/80s except West Africa. We already controlled all the other populations.

    He isn’t an environmentalist because the environment clearly isn’t his top priority. His top priority is ethnic cleansing. But that wouldn’t make him different to any other non white gentile in a ‘Green’ party in the West.

    “The entire earth is a closed system, and the idea that people crossing borders is going to have a major impact on any individual environment is absurd,” said Veery Marten, an Earth First! Journal collective member. “The culprits of this white supremacist violence citing alleged environmental interests are almost always middle class white men who are not lowering their own carbon footprint. It’s not really about consumption, it’s about who’s allowed to consume and gate-keeping these resources.”

    Firstly, Veery Marten is an idiot. If 30 million people crossed into the UK of course it’s going to have an impact. The last part of his quote explains why they perceive a need for environmental justice.

    A worsening climate crisis could easily become a cudgel for anti-immigration activists looking to use ecological preservation as an excuse to close borders, a means of gesturing toward doing something about climate crisis that aligns with the right’s other political goals.

    “As it becomes more difficult for Republicans to deny that climate change is a thing, this is a really likely next move for the right in climate politics,” said Hultgren.

    Come on guys they are telling you what they fear. Get on with it.

    Israel doesn’t machine gun migrants, and can’t get rid of the ones who came in before it built its fence.

    (By the way, in reality it’s probably not that the fence actually stopped them but rather that it made crossing just difficult enough for them to decide they’re better off going to Europe anyway)

    Yeah, but the Israelis think that the people on the other side of their fence are soulless cattle.

    We don’t think that way. So our options are either to do something unthinkable to our fellow man, our equals—complete with bodies piled like cordwood at the borders and the drowned routinely washing ashore—or allow them to do it to us!

    Would we rather be alive and guilty or virtuous and dead? What kind of person supports the death penalty … but only for himself?

    Major Stephen Miller profile at the Washington Post, fairly balanced given the publication:

    The adviser who scripts Trump’s immigration policy

    With unswerving loyalty, Stephen Miller has singular control of an issue central to the presidency

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/2019/politics/stephen-miller-trump-immigration/

    Classic quote:

    Among Miller’s co-workers are a few who believe he harbors racist views. “I don’t know what other principle could animate such a laserlike focus,” said one former career official at DHS.

    Note:

    1. Anonymous source. Why was anonymity casually granted for someone no longer at the agency? The topic asked about does not involve confidential information. Using a real name would allow others who knew him to come forth with more information, perhaps showing bias. Reporters want more information, don’t they?

    2. Reporter fails to ask why source is “former”: retired at standard age? fired? quit on principle? caught leaking or badmouthing on Twitter?

    3. Logic: A Focus on immigration could have no motivation except racism. Occasional interest, and then not pushing for results, fine, that could be motivated by, oh, something else, like, whatever. But a focus? Gotta be racism. Which I do not need to even define.

    I’ve noticed this form of ad hominem argument getting more common. In a debate someone cannot respond (say, to IQ evidence). So he does a right turn to, “Why is he so interested in this as a research topic? I’d really like to know. There are so many things to study. Why choose this? It just makes you wonder.” Yeah, weird, isn’t it. Maybe he’s a racist?

    And isn’t “climate change” not only caused solely by humans and important solely in reference to humans, but ultimately only controllable by humans?

    Don’t try to use sarcasm on this issue.  The climate changes due to a number of influences… and humans have become perhaps THE most powerful of them.  By the Milankovitch cycles we should already be well into a new glacial cycle… but instead we just had the hottest July on record.

    Accept ALL the forcing functions, and that YOU are one of them.  Are more droughts and summer heat waves acceptable to you?  DO SOMETHING ABOUT THEM!

    From the 30,000-foot view, we humans seem to be like yeast in a fermenting vat — destined either to strangle or starve. Taking action now would require passing judgment and taking action when times are still not so bad (relatively speaking), and there is no critical mass of intelligent, realistic, tough-minded scientists or political leaders willing to lead; i.e., to put forth the badly-needed case for population control and a moratorium on immigration from dysfunctional, failed states to the West. As with the national debt, unfunded liabilities, and any number of other problems, we seem destined not to act until circumstances leave us no choice but, in the words of Dan Williams, to scuttle the niceties and be “guilty but alive.”

    Our governments seemingly believe every problem that we face has some sort of solution that it can fix. They will deploy troops to some third world hellhole to attempt to transform Afghanistan into Switzerland. They will attempt to force us to give up meat for bugs to fight climate change. They will move populations around the nation to close the gap.

    Yet when presented with the problem of migrants crossing our borders, they throw their hands up and claim nothing can be done. It is inevitable and is a force of nature that cannot be altered. Not only do they totally not try to prevent it, but they actively assist it by shepherding migrants into our nations and resettling them with our tax monies.

    In reality preventing the migration is not difficult and wouldn’t even require much violence after the initial message had been sent that it will not be tolerated.

Even if the old geezers succeed, it just means they will be replaced by robots and wild animals as they die off. Nature abhors a vacuum.

    There are more Europeans in the world today than at any other time in history. We are not in a breeding contest with the rest of the world. The only reason we are even noticing what is happening in the rest of the world is because of an insane promotion of a borderless world, at least a borderless one as it pertains to the European world. You’ll note Japan, South Korea and China are not being inundated while their birth rates are low and their populations age. It is not inevitable.

    In fact it is preventable and even with a reduced cohort of younger people, modern military tech and training make it vastly easier for fewer, better armed and trained people to hold off such migratory waves.

    And the military solution isn’t even the most critical one at this stage. Simply refraining from subsidizing the migrants will be quite effective as well. They are only coming here because of the social safety net. You can see empirical evidence of this by the way they readily pass through or avoid certain parts of Europe for the greener pastures of Northern European welfare bennies. Or how about the reaction to Trump suggesting immigrants can’t be government charges? They know the immivasion needs to be subsidized. Without said subsidies it dries up considerably.

    Our birthrates are immaterial to what is going on. Recall we had just had the greatest baby boom in our nation’s history when they opened up immigration in 1965. No matter our birthrates they will continue to bring in more and more migrants until we demand a stop to it.

Example quote:

    “there are two forms [of genocide]. …But there is another form — more subtle, less obvious, but potentially equally effective — that we may call passive genocide. The way this works was recently revealed in … remarks by Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, the speaker of the Iranian parliament… Translated bluntly, ‘We Muslims are going to outbreed you.’ … If two cultures compete for the same bit of ‘turf’ (environment), and if one of the populations increases faster than the other, then year by year, the population that is reproducing faster will increasingly outnumber the slower one. … This is passive genocide.”

    The Wisconsin senators were an interesting pair. Well before jogging took off in popularity, my parents were dining at their friends’ home when they were startled by someone running by, which was not normal in those days. The friends explained what jogging was, and that the fellow jogging by was William Proxmire.

    They also explained that the other Wisconsin senator, Gaylord Nelson, walked everywhere to lessen his effect on the environment. Nelson walked miles every day, including to and from work. No private jets, no yachts, no cars. Just his two feet. These days “activists “ talk the talk. Nelson literally walked the walk.

    Nelson probably had a greater positive effect on the environment than any other politician those days. When he left the Senate after his 1980 defeat, he became involved in ZPG type environmental causes.

Any country or family or ethnic group which does not reproduce at replacement level or above will eventually be extinct. This applies to China and Japan. Population collapse will start slowly but accelerate the longer it goes on.

    People in the third world want to consume resources in the amounts people in the first world do. There are not enough resources for that.

    From Laurence C Smith’s contribution to What Should We Be Worried About?:

    My UCLA colleague Jared Diamond calculates that if everyone alive today were to adopt the current lifestyles of North Americans, Western Europeans, Japanese and Australians, global resource consumption would rise eleven-fold. It would be as if the world population suddenly rose from 7 billion to 72 billion…

    That, to me, is scarier than a +40% increase in total population, or even the economic social “slowing pains” of falling total fertility rates…

    A fence is a fence and has the same effect, regardless of whether the people who put it up think the people on the other side are soulless cattle or wonderful human beings created in God’s image.

    So why isn’t our current system working? We have laws and an enforcement division, and in many cases we have fences.

    The difference appears to me that, unlike the Jews in Israel, we here in the United States and in Europe do not think that we’re excluding lesser beings.

    We think we’re excluding people and therefore we feel compassion toward them and act altruistically. We allow them to climb over our fences and flout our laws because deep down, most of us identify with them in some way.

    I believe that most European-derived people believe that it would be wrong to use machineguns on hordes of intruders, and I also believe that without the machineguns, the fences are meaningless. Is this “leftist sophistry” to you, or have I again failed to express myself clearly?

    You may not think you are in a breeding contest, but if you don’t reproduce you will have no decendants.

    I am not suggesting we don’t breed. But I am also not advocating for having 5 kids per woman either. If you want to compete with the SSA, then you would have to try to go for a figure like that. In addition to keeping our nations for ourselves, there is also the concept of scale. Do you really want to live in hyper-populated areas even if those areas are European?

    Any country or family or ethnic group which does not reproduce at replacement level or above will eventually be extinct. This applies to China and Japan. Population collapse will start slowly but accelerate the longer it goes on. And it will be very difficult…

    Forever growing is not always the answer. That is why China implemented their one-child policy. You can’t continue to grow forever without consequences. Once your population throttles back a bit, it should make family formation more affordable. A place like Japan is very populous and expensive. They have 130 million people. During WW2 they had 70 million. When their population starts to decline it should make housing more affordable for young families.

    The trouble we face in Europe and North America is that we are not going to benefit from a reduction in housing due to a declining population because our slack is being taken up by the rest of the world. So our housing and education costs continue to rise making it even less friendly for affordable family formation. Japan is not taking in vast amounts of aliens so when some point is reached, it will be the Japanese who benefit from the changed conditions leading to more Japanese births. We won’t have that in our countries so long as we refuse to shut the gate.

    Either this paragraph from the original article is wrong or you are mistaken in stating that there are more Europeans in the world than at any other time in history.

    I conflated White Americans with Europeans. There are parts of Europe that are probably now showing declines in population much like Japan. However, as I wrote above the Japanese will be the ones who get to take advantage of any positive changes in affordable family formation since no one is coming in. Europeans and Americans will see no benefit since the slack will be taken up by aliens, and thus family formation will remain increasingly unaffordable.

    The Sub-Saharan African population bomb is the most obvious long-term problem facing global peace and prosperity. We’ve been lectured for decades about climate change, but the staggering fertility rates among black Africans have been largely hushed up over the last quarter of a century. We’re supposed to assume the problem will solve itself without any white people ever being so crass as to mention that it’s even a problem.

    The threat by Islamic forces is real, but fools like you are undermining the cause.

    As it currently stands (TFR, migration-rates) the Muslim percentage in many European countries will be at around 10 – 25%. On communal level there might be cities/communes, which will have maybe 30 – 40% Muslim residents.

    But:

    As I have written last year: The percentages are from a good friend, who is a down-to-earth sociolist.

    Around 10% of the Muslim migrants (who often happen to be citizens) are very integrated (meaning accepting the European values & norms) and slightly tilted towards social-conservative/right-wing parties. Toning-down the rethorics/a charismatic leader can easily seduces those folks.

    Around 15% of the Muslim migrants are law-abiding and economically integrated. Same applies like those above. These folks are also mostly citizens by now.

    Around 25% of the Muslims are working-class, who suffer themselves from competition from unchecked migration. Those folks will wise up in the next decade.

    Economically weak Muslims are mostly not even citizens, so we have the possibilty of deporting them en mass.

    Muslims are divided. Turks v Iranian v Kurds v Arabs (of different nations). Even among one ethnic group, you have sub division into clans. SSA Muslims are regarded as second-class fellow Muslims.

    Furthermore the East-Asian & South-East Asian migrants will fall inline with the Europeans, they are the smaller communities but soon will have outsized influence.

    European have shown during era of colonialism they can easily D&C their opponents.

    Some smart left-wing parties ditch their open-borders lunatics and subtely make it clear: Less migrants means welfare-cake slices will be bigger for everyone.

    Well lead right-wing parties will able to scoop up quite alot of well-integrated migrants and with that they will be able to stifle any Nazi affiliations.

    3. Tow ship back to Libya.
    4. Sink ship.
    I’m sorry to sound cruel and inhumane, but wouldn’t it be more effective to skip the first three steps?

    Two things.

    1) Moral
    While the blacks are invaders and as such are fair game for the invaded nations to kill to prevent their entrance, they are not prime culpable party here. The blacks are just trying to better their lot by getting into a white run nations. And they think–quite reasonably–that Europeans will accept their presence if they can get in there. I.e. they think Euros are stupid enough to let them in, because Euros have been letting them in.

    The truly evil people here are these “human rights” people who are functioning as the final leg of a human trafficing network and are traitors to their race, nation and civilization.

    2) Winning
    Sinking a boat of blacks makes you look–to a lot of people–like a “murderer”, while denying entrance and towing people back where they came from does not.

    But labelling the “human rights” traitors explicitly as “human trafficers” and treating them as criminals, you shift the debate. It’s no longer about blacks, their problems, their desire to get into Europe and it’s explicitly about the evil white people helping them–and putting the migrants at risk by doing so–and breaking laws, breaking borders to do so.

    When you shift the debate onto the evil white people enabling this … you win. That’s exactly where you want the debate to be. Because it is evil white people, in “human rights” organizations, but more importantly in government, in business, in journalism–writing on the pages of the Economist or the Wall Street Journal or NYT (like oh say Brett Stephens or Max Boot or Stephen Miller’s noxious Uncle Glosser)–who are the crux of the problem and must be defeated (killed, locked up, exiled or just removed from any power/influence) for the West to survive.

    So here you have people who chose to leave their home country (say Nigeria), enter Libya, leave Libya by boat, then claim they can’t be taken back to Libya because it’s not safe. If Libya isn’t safe they should never have traveled there in the first place. If it was safe enough to pass through on their way to Europe then it’s safe enough for them to pass through on their way back home. If there are any concerns in that regard then all these “rescue groups” need do after taking them back to Libya is buy them a one-way ticket from Tripoli back to their home countries.

    This goes both ways. It’s a Semitic thing, baked into the DNA.

    The fact is that prior to Zionism, Jews and Arabs for the most part got along pretty well in the Holy Land. In the days before the Zionist heretics established their (secular) state in violation of Judaism, members of the anti-Zionist Orthodox community in the Holy Land (the Old Yishuv) thought nothing, for example, of entrusting their children to the care of their Arab neighbors. There are still elderly Jews alive today (including one who is quite close to a friend of mine) who recall those days.

    Muslims have been more respectful of the sanctity of the Holy Land than irreligious Jews have. The beliefs, values and lifestyle of traditionalist Orthodox Jews often have more in common with traditionalist Muslims than with secular, irreligious (and certainly antireligous) Jews.

    Incessantly-repeated claims to the contrary notwithstanding, Judaism does not view non-Jews as “soulless cattle”. To the extent that such an assertion is based on authentic passages in accepted sacred Judaic texts, they are tendentiously selected and interpreted, if not blatantly mistranslated and misinterpreted. I will not go to the trouble to elaborate in detail here, as (a) the topic is several-times-removed from that of the blog post that is the topic of this thread and (b) few of the type of individuals who persist in repeating such claims have any interest in their truth or accuracy. Such individuals are convinced that Judaism and Jews (at a minimum, those who believe in Judaism and, more often than not, all or nearly all Jews) are inherently evil, pernicious and nefarious. Such individuals have repeatedly demonstrated that reasonable discussion and dialogue is not possible with them.

    “The idea that these societies can triple or quadruple their populations with the added factors of soil degradation & water stress is preposterous.”

    I looked into the projections when Steve posted on this same topic a year or so ago. The growth rates. The population projections are based on growth rates that have persisted for a very long time – 30-40-50 years. Birth rates in many countries seems to have actually increased in recent years. If Africa’s population were to continue to grow at rates similar to the last several decades it would actually reach 6-8 billion by the end of the century. No joke. The UN projection seems on the low side, by comparison.

    Unreasonable? Haiti has nearly 1,000 people per square mile. The Indian state of Uttar Pradesh has 200 million people – 2,100 people per square mile. It is smaller than Michigan. If Africa achieved the population density of Uttar Pradesh it would have over 24 billion people. Suddenly 6-8 billion people doesn’t seem so unlikely, does it?

    There are, of course, environmental limits on human population size. There are apparently no limits, though, on human stupidity, or on what degree of squalor some humans will tolerate before they stop shagging. That’s the “survival of the fittest” we are faced with today is between those humans with a low tolerance for squalor (Westerners) and those with a very high tolerance for squalor (Third Worlders). With no limits on immigration there is no way tye Westerners will win that battle in our own countries.

    The events in Europe from 1939 to 1945, committed by Europeans on other Europeans – which are still in the memory of persons now living – seem to contradict your thesis.

    Forever growing is not always the answer. That is why China implemented their one-child policy. You can’t continue to grow forever without consequences. Once your population throttles back a bit, it should make family formation more affordable. A place like Japan is very populous and expensive. They have 130 million people. During WW2 they had 70 million. When their population starts to decline it should make housing more affordable for young families.

    The trouble we face in Europe and North America is that we are not going to benefit from a reduction in housing due to a declining population because our slack is being taken up by the rest of the world. So our housing and education costs continue to rise making it even less friendly for affordable family formation. Japan is not taking in vast amounts of aliens so when some point is reached, it will be the Japanese who benefit from the changed conditions leading to more Japanese births. We won’t have that in our countries so long as we refuse to shut the gate.

    istevefan, as usual you’re on target. These two graphs are solid gold.

    I highlight your key bits of math–or basic logic–here. I’m always a bit perplexed that a fair number of people, even here seem unable to grasp these points which to me seem rather obvious.

    — A nation will naturally recover from a fertility dip on it’s own. The population pressure eases, family formation is more affordable … and the “breeder” personality/culture form an increasing share of the population.

    But … only if the nation maintains control of its borders and keeps out immigrants.

    — Immigrants suppress native fertility. They eat up the space, housing, jobs that natives create with lower fertility and make family formation more expensive.

    ~~~

    My only quibble would be that i think it is important to get our tribe on side with the breeder message. The simple mathematical truth is a normative “two” means population decline. The cultural message you need is that three is normative number for a healthy couple with their ducks in a row. The extra kid makes up for all the non-marrieds, late-starters, health problems who end up at zero or one. And healthy, ducks-in-a-row people having more keeps you eugenically fit.

    But that’s secondary to your points. A recovery will happen naturally as the breeders rise in population share. What is critical is keeping invaders from grabbing up the freed space and resources, making family formation more expensive and suppressing the recovery.

    What we need to do is prevent ourselves from being swamped by those who can’t or won’t control themselves. This involves hard choices, apparently, because very few seem up to making them.

    We should stop all aid to Africa immediately and refuse to admit anyone with an African passport. The Africans will practice population reduction on themselves and each other.

  173. @TTSSYF

    … there is no critical mass of intelligent, realistic, tough-minded scientists or political leaders willing to lead; i.e., to put forth the badly-needed case for population control and a moratorium on immigration from dysfunctional, failed states to the West.

    If just a handful of public figures would speak out strongly and without apology for a sane policy of population reduction, it might turn things around faster than anyone expects.

    What species is this guy? Where do they breed it? Is he a generic American black whose parents joined the Nation of Islam? Or maybe half-Hispanic, with two of his grandparents being in the Nation of Islam?

    Mustafa Santiago gets two pokemon points, one for mustafa and one for santiago. This makes him more intersectional than you. You, Steve Sailer, have zero pokemon points; none for Steve and none for Sailer. Mr. Santiago Ali has so many pokemon points that he has evolved into a level 100 Wokemon, thus you should just up and listen to what he has to say.

    I believe that most European-derived people believe that it would be wrong to use machineguns on hordes of intruders, and I also believe that without the machineguns, the fences are meaningless. Is this “leftist sophistry” to you, or have I again failed to express myself clearly?

    I didn’t say anything about using machine guns on hordes of intruders. Notwithstanding that, you are again conflating several things into jumbled, muddled thinking and false choice so typical of that very small subset of well-intentioned Leftists. If you think that most of the Leftists promoting open borders and decriminalizing illegal entry into the country are doing so because they recognize that we are “excluding people and therefore feel compassion toward them and are acting altruistically”, and that they would “allow them to climb over our fences and flout our laws because deep down, most of them identify with them in some way”, you are sadly mistaken. Most of the Leftists promoting this are doing it for one reason that overrides all others: hatred of whites and glee in seeing whites becoming a minority. They can barely contain themselves at the thought of traditional, heritage white Americans getting their (our) “just punishments.”

    It’s hard for me to believe that you are serious with such naïve comments. I have a four-foot fence around my backyard, and it is quite effective in keeping my dog inside the yard and other dogs out of the yard. I lock my doors at night or when I leave my house and, so far, that’s been pretty effective at keeping intruders or would-be thieves out. No need for machine guns — just the will to maintain the fence and lock the doors. We lack a critical mass of political leaders and far-sighted thinkers to make the case for effective border control that would give voice to the average citizen who, I believe, is deeply frustrated at our country being overrun by illegal immigration and its noisy defenders.

    The muslim population is already at 20% among the German youth population , thanks to 900,000 muslim refugees under the age of 25 who arrived in Germany over the last 4 years. 75% of these young refugees are males and will soon be getting wives and having muslim children, importing muslim wives or converting German females to marry and bear their children.

    The aboriginal German females have a fertility rate below 1.5. The Muslims females have a fertility rate closer to 3 and an average age of 27 verse an average age of 51 for Christian Germans. there are currently about 10 million Germans aged 14-24 , about 5 million are male, of which 1.2 million are muslim males. Each month another 10,000 muslims are welcomed into Germany, as 15,000 Aboriginal Germans pass away. The aboriginal population of Germany is declining by 160,000 per year, as deaths continue to outnumber German births. in 7 years the aboriginal population of Germany will decline by 1.2 million as the Muslim population increases by 2 million.

    Since 20% of white millennials will never bear children, and 9% will bear non-white children, the Millennials who do have white children will need to average 3 children to maintain the current white population in America.

    This is not occurring, thus the white population in America is falling. It reached 197 million in 2010 and has since fallen to 196 million. The white population will fall below 180 million by 2050. This would not be a big concern if we had closed borders, but we are allowing 1.7 million non-whites to migrate into our nation each year, as the number of White births fell below 1.8 million last year. Last year was the first year ever than immigrants into America exceeded white births.

    BTW what is “environmental justice?”

    It’s stuff like, global warming is going to harm ghetto people extra bad. Or (on a slightly sounder basis), poor people live downwind of air polluting factories. The global warming articles are often good iSteve-bait.

  180. @TTSSYF

    Quite right. It’s a real invasion of course, but still rapefugees aren’t exactly the Wehrmacht; tear gas is all it takes to deter 99.99% of them, as has been demonstrated along Israel’s fence with Gaza.

    Italy, for its part, would be safer if it sank its own navy.

    “Still I think the Europeans will stop Africans by the millions coming to the continent. There’s simply no political will for it outside of deranged activists.”

    If only… Most elites want this African flood. Maybe they don’t fully grasp its possible magnitude. Half a billion Africans settling in Western Europe would amount to nuking the continent with 500 hundred nuclear warheads. Civilization, law and order, the economy, society would never recover.

    The fact is that prior to Zionism, Jews and Arabs for the most part got along pretty well in the Holy Land.

    I wasn’t talking about Europe in the forties, I was talking about Europe now. People and nations change, in character and leadership. Gibbon wrote a very famous book about it.

    “Diversity is our strength”?

    I have repeatedly expressed my support for the right of White nations to restrict immigration and to maintain their ethnic/racial/religious character. I don’t see how anything I wrote now could reasonably be construed as contradicting such positions but let the record, which is easily verifiable via my posting history, be made clear.

    In the golden age of which you speak, neither of these groups ran the place.

    Not on a national level, no. And that was kind of my whole point. (The British did, however, grant a considerable degree of freedom to both Jews as well as Arabs for each group to conduct its own day-to-day affairs and worship as it saw fit.) You had effectively claimed that enmity and violent conflict between Jews and Arabs was, for both groups, genetically based. I countered by citing the historical fact that I did.

    First of all:

    – Merkel’s adopted sons do not qualitfy for family reunion. Only a segment, who are granted asylums/subsidary protection can bring over their family at a rate of 1000 per month.

    – I live in Germany and I see that many youg Muslims are only paper-Muslims. They are the run-of-mill middle-class youngsters, who are more interested in partying, career and videogames than living religous lifes. As I said previously many of them are actually quite pissed of Merkel’s idiocy. A well-led right-wing party can easily scoop them up.

    – European military & police – especially the elite units – are still European. When the leadership changes they will be unleashed.

    – Unintegrated Muslims are largely confined to the big urban centers and economically weak and often not even citizens. They are not very bright and only capable bring local numbers into the game – in case of open hostilities they will be finished by military means very fast. Mass deportation is still on table. In case of civil war they will starve very fast.

    – Eastern Germany will send the message in 9 days.

    There is no ‘pope’ in Judaism. Every rabbi has his own opinions on this and other issues, and if his views become popular enough, he may attract followers and even form a movement. But his opinion remains just his opinion, open to dispute and contradiction by his peers.
