From The Economist:

Why Europe should focus on its growing interdependence with Africa

Sealing the Mediterranean will not work

Charlemagne then

by Charlemagne, Sep 20th 2018

IT IS a peculiarly modern habit to think of the Mediterranean Sea as a boundary. For over two millennia, civilisations bled across it and intermingled. Roman, Carthaginian, Moorish and Venetian empires expanded primarily along maritime routes. It took four days to get from imperial Rome to today’s Tunisia, but 11 days to reach Milan. The Sahara restricted contact between this Mediterranean Eurafrica and the regions to the south, but not entirely. A study of 22 skulls from Roman London found that four were African, for example.

North African, to be precise …

… Today’s waves of African migration are merely a prelude. Of the 2.2bn citizens added to the global population by 2050, 1.3bn will be Africans—about the size of China’s population today. And more of them will have the means to travel. Those Africans risking the trip north across the Mediterranean today are not the poorest, but those with a mobile phone to organise the trip and money to pay smugglers. Few of the Nigerians who attempt the crossing are from their country’s poor north, for example; almost all are from its wealthier south. As African countries gradually prosper, migration will surely increase, not decrease. Emmanuel Macron raised these points in a recent interview. The French president was recommending a new book, “The Rush to Europe”, published in French by Stephen Smith of Duke University, which models past international migrations like that of Mexicans into America to show that the number of Afro-Europeans (Europeans with African roots) could rise from 9m at present to between 150m and 200m by 2050, perhaps a quarter of Europe’s total population. …

Charlemagne now

Prof. Smith actually finds the African population boom and migration to Europe quite alarming.

EU leaders met in Salzburg on September 19th and 20th to discuss new border controls and north African “disembarkation platforms” where migrants from the south could be processed and sent back. The summit epitomised a strategy that Mr Smith dubs “Fortress Europe”, which involves reducing migration from north Africa at almost any human cost, letting in merely a trickle of approved African migrants, bickering over who should accommodate them and then, as recompense, funnelling modest aid into Africa. Angela Merkel promotes a “Marshall Plan for Africa”, as a means of reducing migration. That reckons without the fact that economic development will raise migration numbers.

The scramble for Europe

There is an alternative “Eurafrica” strategy, writes Mr Smith. This is to accept the integration of Africa and Europe. Alex de Waal, an Africa expert at Tufts University, agrees that is the only realistic course. “The logic of history is a European-Mediterranean market that will cross the Sahara, too,” he says. “The challenge is to recognise that reality and make it a mutually beneficial and regulated one. Building walls will not work.” …

It also means creating regulated routes for migrants travelling in both directions. Over the century, European districts that today have a Eurafrican character—parts of Barcelona, Marseille, Brussels and London, say—will become more the norm than the exception. “African migrants will provide a significant part of the European workforce, so we need to ask what part of the workforce and what sort of training we need to provide,” says Mr de Waal. African music and food will become more prominent in European cultural and culinary diets.

The two options, Fortress Europe versus Eurafrica, may one day end up as a choice between denial and reality. Europe cannot insulate itself from the dramatic long-term shifts in its continental neighbour. Like it or not, Eurafrica is part of Europe’s demographic and cultural destiny. It is better, surely, not to ignore or reject this but to work out how to make it a success.

After all, what’s the worst that could happen to Europe by becoming Eurafrica?

Turn Paris into Detroit?

What?

That’s racist to say that. It’s racist to even think that!

Is Paris worth a crimethought?

I don’t think so!

  4. Forget it, its over. A deeply feminized society will always import the ISteve “swaggering army of occupation louts” over its soy-boy pedastalizing, placating native men. And lets face it nobody does swaggering low IQ personal domination better than Africans! Why just the other day Africans were accusing each other of sorcery to make their penises disappear. This is exactly the kind of people the aging cat ladies, gays, and weirdos who run Europe demand.

    Marie Le Pen is being committed to the nuthouse for posting ISIS atrocities and asking if that is what France wants. Well of course France wants it, or at least all its leaders — Power Bottom Macron, Cat Lady Merkel, Drunkard Jean-Claude Juncker, and certified hard-left loonie Jeremy Corbyn.

    I certainly hope that a leader like Putin would gaze over Paris and figure that he could easily move even his decrepit forces West to the English Channel possibly beyond given that the Mighty Wehrmacht resembles a gay pride parade and Britain is an a frenzy of Racism finding among its cat lady purity leaders. The French army consists of a few special forces and mostly Africans and North African muslims now.

    That’s pretty much what it comes down to, hoping that Putin will figure France might as well belong to him as his Vacation villa instead of say half of Africa. There is no voting ourselves out of this — the power of the managerial elite is too strong and distributed.

    Heck if I woke up one morning to the news that Rod Rosenstein had convened Mrs. Mitch McConnel (Elaine Chao Transportation Secretary), Jeff Sessions, and Mike Pompeo to remove Trump and install Pence or even someone like super-cuck John Kasich I would not be shocked. Jerry Brown is openly calling for Trump’s assassination. These are not the moves of an elite that has anything to fear from its people — they already figure we are “the dregs of society” to quote Biden and plan on eliminating us and replacing us with Africans and Mestizos and the world’s Muslims. [Expect a move to import all the Rohingya and Uighurs here because racism!]

    The US congress has been coerced into funneling billions to Israeli defense and wall building, but they have yet to offer to the Europeans to build a wall. Best bet is that the first wall that will be constructed is facing east, not south. A southern wall will never be financed by the US establishment, best chance is if Italy prints lira and uses that to finance the future neo-Roman emperor's Salvinian wall

    In case anyone believes all those stories about “exotic” skeletons in ancient Britain…..

    Determining the ancestry of unidentified human remains is a major task for bioarchaeologists and forensic anthropologists. Here, we report an assessment of the computer program that has become the main tool for accomplishing this task. Called Fordisc, the program determines ancestry through discriminant function analysis of cranial measurements. We evaluated the utility of Fordisc with 200 specimens of known ancestry. We ran the analyses with and without the test specimen’s source population included in the program’s reference sample, and with and without specifying the sex of the test specimen. We also controlled for the possibility that the number of variables employed affects the program’s ability to attribute ancestry. The results of the analyses suggest that Fordisc’s utility in research and medico-legal contexts is limited. Fordisc will only return a correct ancestry attribution when an unidentified specimen is more or less complete, and belongs to one of the populations represented in the program’s reference samples. Even then Fordisc can be expected to classify no more than 1 per cent of specimens with confidence.

    Geoffrey Moorhouse attempted a solo east-west crossing in 1972. He survived, but didn't finish. He even gave up the solo part, as he found he couldn't trust anybody. However, his progress was at least as far as any north-south crossing.


    Eventually, the crossing was made, by several guys in an air-cooled Volkswagen, if memory serves.

    This is the perfect book to read in the wintry depths of February, at least if you're stuck in white man's country. It will make you appreciate the cold outside.

    It's hard to believe Moorhouse was a Guardian man, but then, the Guardian was still in Manchester in those days.

    They conducted statistical modeling of the skulls and teeth… It was this testing that suggested that two of the skeletons were likely of Asian descent—and that four others were likely of North African descent. The researchers acknowledge that the method is not nearly as clear-cut as DNA testing, and in this case, it was even less so because many of the bones used in the analysis were fragmented.

    It is even more funny when we take into account that those who say we urgently have to encourage immigration from Africa because otherwise the workforce would be too small to a significant degree overlap with those who say that because of increasing automation, there will be fewer and fewer jobs, people won’t be able to live on salaries and therefore, basic income should be paid to everyone unconditionally.

    When it’s about unconditional basic income, there are too many people and too few jobs, when it’s about migration, there are too many jobs and too few people – at least for people like Katja Kipping who is both an open borders and a basic income advocate (well, to think about it, even though the arguments for both proposals contradict each other, when the goal is just to entice maximum immigration from Africa, promising unconditional basic income is probably even more effective than promising jobs).

    If we had sane, rational rulers in north Africa, the mighty Sahara - for millennia the epitome of blasted, useless waste - could well be the most productive real estate on the planet.

    Think of it being utilised as one vast solar farm - the cost of Chinese fabricated solar cell panels is now trivial.

    The salient fact is that all of these economically challegened nations - which all face mass unrest from their pauperized populace - are ignoring a potentially huge revenue stream.

    When it’s about unconditional basic income, there are too many people and too few jobs, when it’s about migration, there are too many jobs and too few people - at least for people like Katja Kipping who is both an open borders and a basic income advocate (well, to think about it, even though the arguments for both proposals contradict each other, when the goal is just to entice maximum immigration from Africa, promising unconditional basic income is probably even more effective than promising jobs).

    On a serious note, there are some goods that the economy seems to always demand more of. The saturation point has yet to be reached. Cheap oil before the 1970s allowed the creation of the muscle car. The muscle car has limited practical use, but plenty of people would like to have one.

    In the same fashion, lots of people would like to have a live-in servant. Some old people might actually need one, and this is a job that is hard to automate and will always be low paying witout the state restricting labor supply.

    The biggest barrier to employing migrants isn't their lack of skill and low IQ. Nor is it language barriers. America has lots of those kind of people. The difference is that American labor law is the thinnest of all developed countries. Things like Uber attract often violent resistance in Europe.

Based on the amount of attention it gets, it seems cultured Americans view the Hollywood blacklist as being the second-worst atrocity America has ever committed(not as bad as slavery, but worse than displacing the indians).

    The really depressing thing is that in order to truly and permanently solve the problem, Western nations would have to suppress open borders activists with a vigor approaching that which the communists and nazis suppressed their enemies. Think about it. Suppose we iStevers could snap our fingers together and magically transport the unwanted immigrants and their (non-interbreeding) descendants back to their homelands instantly and without violence. What then? Academia, government, media, business, and most importantly, the education system, are still in the hands of the people who think the world described by Neal Stephenson in Snow Crash is a utopia. They'd just exercise the levers of power as they always have, flood our countries with a vengeance, and in a few decades we'd be right back where we started.

    People like this Charlemagne fellow are basically the HIV virus in human form. And just as modern medicine can't cure HIV, modern western countries don't really have the intellectual, emotional or legal means to deal with them. Technically none of them will have committed a crime, even though they are the most treasonous bunch to ever walk the earth. How do we deal with them?

    In some sense, the globalists have already won, because to comprehensively deal with the spiritual, intellectual and physical destruction they have wrought will require western countries to exhibit levels of brutality that they have not shown in seven decades. And then what? How do we turn that off and go back to being our pleasant selves?

    Several reports have estimated that within 20.years 50% of all current jobs will be automated or computerised away. Andy Haldane from “Bank of England” predicted recently that England (and the rest of the west) stood prior for a more dramatic industrial revolution than those we have had;

    “Each of those [industrial revolutions] had a wrenching and lengthy impact on the jobs market, on the lives and livelihoods of large swathes of society.

    “Jobs were effectively taken by machines of various types, there was a hollowing out of the jobs market, and that left a lot of people for a lengthy period out of work and struggling to make a living…

    “This is the dark side of technological revolutions and that dark side has always been there”That hollowing out is going to be potentially on a much greater scale in the future, when we have machines both thinking and doing – replacing both the cognitive and the technical skills of humans.”

    We drove to Paris this year (in February). As usual the family were tutting at my deplorable unwoke mutterings. However, as we trundled through an African strip slum along what had once been a major road into the city I fancy they tutted at me a bit less. The African beggar tapping on the window was perhaps the turning point.

    The next morning, in daylight, outside where we were staying I found a charity collection box lying in the snow, forced open, a few coins lying around. Who would do such a thing?

    I felt so enriched. Bravo Economist.

    “Although more in-depth analysis of the environmental conditions in Guinea over the period in question remain to be conducted,” he and co-author Lara Schwarz wrote, “inhabitants in the region do indeed anecdotally report an exceptionally arid and prolonged dry season, perhaps linked to the extreme deforestation of the area over recent decades. At present, we can only speculate that these drier ecologic conditions somehow influence the number or proportion of Ebola virus-infected bats and/or the frequency of human contact with them.”

    Of course he's a Jew. There is no other way to explain this crazed hostility.

    I'm getting really worried about the future. It can't continue as things are going. The Jews will eventually need to be stripped of a lot of their power in Western countries - it has got to happen (and it's just).

    It could be done peacefully (with some rancour) in the same way the Jews de-legitimized the Catholic Church's power in our culture -- through relentless criticism, mockery and legal/cultural maneuvering, but that took a very long time. This also presumes the Jews play fair and will accept a demotion without violence, like the elites who came before them (I have doubts).

    I really feel a major upheaval is coming. Probably sooner than most imagine. I can't see any solution. I can think of many solutions myself, that would lead to better outcomes for all, but the Jews will never accept anything short of global government with themselves at the helm. We simply don't get to opt out of the Jewish plan.

    Douglas Murray (Strange Death of Europe) is pretty mainstream but is willing to point out that the "labor shortage" argument makes no sense, and makes dramatically less sense given the second and third favorite faith articles of our mainstream media, the inevitability of automation and the necessity of secondary education.

    On a serious note, there are some goods that the economy seems to always demand more of. The saturation point has yet to be reached. Cheap oil before the 1970s allowed the creation of the muscle car. The muscle car has limited practical use, but plenty of people would like to have one.

    In the same fashion, lots of people would like to have a live-in servant. Some old people might actually need one, and this is a job that is hard to automate and will always be low paying witout the state restricting labor supply.

    The biggest barrier to employing migrants isn’t their lack of skill and low IQ. Nor is it language barriers. America has lots of those kind of people. The difference is that American labor law is the thinnest of all developed countries. Things like Uber attract often violent resistance in Europe.

    Who knows? We might even see a WokeCapital ™ firm create make-work jobs directly, rather than launder the money through non-profits.

    This is orthogonal to African immigration into Europe; and a large portion of immigration from third world into first world; where few of the immigrants have marginal economic utility. Few of these immigrants are going to build any muscle cars or wipe any backsides.

    What I always find so funny is the „argument“ that Europe needs many millions of Africans because otherwise, the percentage of people who are working may go down because of the larger percentage of pensioners.

    It is even more funny when we take into account that those who say we urgently have to encourage immigration from Africa because otherwise the workforce would be too small to a significant degree overlap with those who say that because of increasing automation, there will be fewer and fewer jobs, people won’t be able to live on salaries and therefore, basic income should be paid to everyone unconditionally.

    When it’s about unconditional basic income, there are too many people and too few jobs, when it’s about migration, there are too many jobs and too few people - at least for people like Katja Kipping who is both an open borders and a basic income advocate (well, to think about it, even though the arguments for both proposals contradict each other, when the goal is just to entice maximum immigration from Africa, promising unconditional basic income is probably even more effective than promising jobs).

  102. 26% of Australian citizens were born in other countries. 49% of Australians have at least one parent born elsewhere. There is now a strong bias towards migrants with skills and/or money but Europeans were once welcome with no such check and all nationalities were successful. Chinese and Indians are successful migrants and have a higher entrepreneurial tendency than the British. All other university educated migrants from any country are successful too.

    If we still had full employment as we had up to 1967, Africans without skills would be successful in Australia. In those days it was easy to find work as a laborer but it isn’t anymore. I’d still let them in but I’d be lying if I said such a program wouldn’t provoke a quite reasonable backlash. It’s just my personal preference. How many people want more competition for scarce jobs? What European country can’t find enough laborers while employers beg for them?

    Of course he’s a Jew. There is no other way to explain this crazed hostility.

    I’m getting really worried about the future. It can’t continue as things are going. The Jews will eventually need to be stripped of a lot of their power in Western countries – it has got to happen (and it’s just).

    It could be done peacefully (with some rancour) in the same way the Jews de-legitimized the Catholic Church’s power in our culture — through relentless criticism, mockery and legal/cultural maneuvering, but that took a very long time. This also presumes the Jews play fair and will accept a demotion without violence, like the elites who came before them (I have doubts).

    I really feel a major upheaval is coming. Probably sooner than most imagine. I can’t see any solution. I can think of many solutions myself, that would lead to better outcomes for all, but the Jews will never accept anything short of global government with themselves at the helm. We simply don’t get to opt out of the Jewish plan.

    Has communism ever really been suppressed in the west during the post World War 2 era? Based on the amount of attention it gets, it seems cultured Americans view the Hollywood blacklist as being the second-worst atrocity America has ever committed(not as bad as slavery, but worse than displacing the indians).

    The really depressing thing is that in order to truly and permanently solve the problem, Western nations would have to suppress open borders activists with a vigor approaching that which the communists and nazis suppressed their enemies. Think about it. Suppose we iStevers could snap our fingers together and magically transport the unwanted immigrants and their (non-interbreeding) descendants back to their homelands instantly and without violence. What then? Academia, government, media, business, and most importantly, the education system, are still in the hands of the people who think the world described by Neal Stephenson in Snow Crash is a utopia. They’d just exercise the levers of power as they always have, flood our countries with a vengeance, and in a few decades we’d be right back where we started.

    People like this Charlemagne fellow are basically the HIV virus in human form. And just as modern medicine can’t cure HIV, modern western countries don’t really have the intellectual, emotional or legal means to deal with them. Technically none of them will have committed a crime, even though they are the most treasonous bunch to ever walk the earth. How do we deal with them?

    In some sense, the globalists have already won, because to comprehensively deal with the spiritual, intellectual and physical destruction they have wrought will require western countries to exhibit levels of brutality that they have not shown in seven decades. And then what? How do we turn that off and go back to being our pleasant selves?

    Maybe Charlemagne will realize the error in his ways in fifty years or so, when, cold and hungry, he manages to drag his frail body within sight of the Hungarian border wall, now extended to protect the entire boundary with Western Europe. He queues behind a line of starving, beaten whites from France, Britain, Ireland, Sweden and Germany.

    However, this doesn’t mean that the Czech video game industry is in the doldrums. Several months ago, new company Warhorse Studio released Kingdom Come: Deliverance, a first person RPG which has become famous for its degree of medieval realism – the architecture is very historically faithful, features the most accurate recreation of medieval swordplay of any major game, and comes accompanied by an in-game encyclopedia so that you actually learn things about medieval Bohemia. One of the more obvious things is that there weren’t any Negroes in that region in the 15th century. Chief developer Daniel Vavra’s resistance to SJW demands to “diversify” medieval Bohemia provoked leftist attempts to boycott the game; the happy reality is that it has sold very well and is becoming a classic in the genre.

    In the 1990s I got to know some of its correspondents who were invariably extremely intelligent and well informed albeit prone to being workaholics.

    But later the character of the people changed: much less deeply interested on what was really going on; much more inclined to pump out a "clever" argument. The old cliché - that an Economist journalist knows that three things needs to be done about every problem in the world and that he only needs a little time to deduce what these solutions are - has appeared increasingly apt.

    On a serious note, there are some goods that the economy seems to always demand more of. The saturation point has yet to be reached. Cheap oil before the 1970s allowed the creation of the muscle car. The muscle car has limited practical use, but plenty of people would like to have one.

    In the same fashion, lots of people would like to have a live-in servant. Some old people might actually need one, and this is a job that is hard to automate and will always be low paying witout the state restricting labor supply.

    The biggest barrier to employing migrants isn't their lack of skill and low IQ. Nor is it language barriers. America has lots of those kind of people. The difference is that American labor law is the thinnest of all developed countries. Things like Uber attract often violent resistance in Europe.

    Sanctuary cities run by Libs take pride in not asking for -any- documents. A local cop told me 15 years ago that it was worth his job to inquire about citizenship. An electrical inspector came by my house in 2009 and apologized for being late. Said he'd been at a fire in South XXXX. I asked him about it and he said he couldn't talk too much but there was a bunch of home grown wiring.

    Bottom line is more clients for the welfare state and more voters for the welfare state. Businesses get cheap labor, yuppie scum get cheap child care and lawn mowing, and the middle class gets to eat shit paying for increased spending on ESOL in schools, free lunches in schools, WIC, medical costs, gangs, free tuition for illegals, assaults, drunk driving, etc. Did I forget to mention that they are ahead of your White butt for a job because they are a minority?

    Having lived for many years in some of America’s most “progressive” jurisdictions, I can confirm that laws are not enforced against immigrants, who after all come from other societies and can’t be expected to understand our legal system.

    By some strange kind of corollary, laws are also not enforced against any kind of diversity, because, well, you know…those people have suffered enough, haven’t they? This even applies to one of the smallest and wealthiest segments of society.

    “African migrants will provide a significant part of the European workforce, so we need to ask what part of the workforce and what sort of training we need to provide,” says Mr de Waal.
     
    I wonder if African migrants might eventually want to do more than work for people like Mr. de Waal?

    Perhaps Mr. de Waal might even end up working for one of them?

    Nah... forget I said it.


    Angela Merkel promotes a “Marshall Plan for Africa”, as a means of reducing migration. That reckons without the fact that economic development will raise migration numbers.
     
    It would of course be evil - and worse, crass and vulgar - for westerners to buy African slaves to take over the crappy jobs that the native peons consider themselves too good for. But to spend that same money, knowing that it will cause those same Africans to come to Europe of their own volition, to work those same crappy jobs, and with, apparently, the same hope of social or political advancement: this is not only the height of sophistication but of morality as well.

    Your final paragraph is absolutely brilliant.

  173. The Economist magazine is a City of London, globalizer rump swab propaganda shop that pushes nation-wrecking mass immigration and multicultural mayhem.

    The rancid slobs who put out The Economist magazine push mass immigration because it benefits bankers and other globalized plutocrat scum.

    I remember those filthy dirtbags at The Economist magazine saying that all the green belts in England would have to be paved over to put up high-density housing to stuff every foreigner bastard they could get into them. How about removing all the foreigners from England and keeping the green belts?

    High housing costs in England are caused by mass immigration and monetary policy — low interest rates bidding up real estate prices.

    Haddon Hall Derbyshire has been watching The Economist magazine in the same way some guy named Grant is watching interest rates. Some people look at leaves, other guys look at interest rates and magazines.

    Michel Houllebecq's novel (?) Submission may prove to be quite prescient on this score ie in the future Europe will become part of a wider Mediteranean Communty which in due course will be majority African and Islamic

    Replies: @Yngvar

    The idea of a future “Eurabia” is derided as a conspiracy theory by the Establishment media, as something cooked up by islamophobes, counter-jihadists and worse. This is, of course, not so.

    France took the initiative in the EU for the EuroMed cooperation (everything detailed on EU web sites). France envisioned a free trade area for all countries around the Mediterranean. It stalled and fizzled because the North-African Arab nations demanded Israel be excluded. This France would not allow. Eurabia was no more.

    ps.
    The reason Israel is in the Eurovision Song Contest is that they are banned from the Middle East Song Contest. We can’t let Israel to be isolated.

  175. The historical frame of the Economist column is, as its first sentence claims, that the Mediterranean Sea has for all of recorded history, been a highway for economic and intellectual trade. In the course of this claim, the writer even speaks of the “empire” of Venice, which had a few islands in that sea and a few coastal cities, and was always a republic.

    The assertion of a uniformly trade-promoting body of water between Europe and Africa omits the historical consensus, accepted not only by general historians but preferentially by those specializing in economic history, that Mediterranean became a barrier with the establishment of an Islamic Empire on the southern shore of the Mediterranean, in the seventh century CE. This barrier reduced trade to a trickle and imposed a great obstacle to intellectual and cultural exchange as well; the continent of Europe was forced to develop its own economic and trade, not to mention intellectual and cultural, resources.

    The historical consensus among scholars dates to the 1930s, beginning with Henri Pirenne’s Mohammed and Charlemagne and continuing with the Annalles School’s Marc Bloch and, since the 1950s, Fernand Braudel’s magisterial The Mediterranean and the Mediterranean World, translated into English in 1972. Its status as the framework for historical treatment of the Mediterranean in post-classical history was confirmed as recently as 2001 with the work of Michael McClosky.

    What we have, in short, is a claim for a historical treatment of the status of the Mediterranean Sea which elides the overall consensus of the entire historical profession for the last century. It does this, I would suggest not coincidentally, so that it can ignore the damage done to trans-maritime trade by the establishment of Islam.

    In the days before the internet, the Economist was the go-to journal for international, global news.

    Unfortunately, at some point in the 1990s, it came down with a very bad case of political correctness and has never recovered.
     
    Actually, as I discussed a few years ago, I think the damage was a byproduct of its own remarkable success:

    I lived in Hong Kong in the 80s when it was, for me and my friends, a real event when the Economist came out with an issue of local interest.

    In the 1990s I got to know some of its correspondents who were invariably extremely intelligent and well informed albeit prone to being workaholics.

    But later the character of the people changed: much less deeply interested on what was really going on; much more inclined to pump out a “clever” argument. The old cliché – that an Economist journalist knows that three things needs to be done about every problem in the world and that he only needs a little time to deduce what these solutions are – has appeared increasingly apt.

    Open borders advocates should be suppressed with the same vigor as communists, nazis, and anarchists.

     

    Has communism ever really been suppressed in the west during the post World War 2 era? Based on the amount of attention it gets, it seems cultured Americans view the Hollywood blacklist as being the second-worst atrocity America has ever committed(not as bad as slavery, but worse than displacing the indians).

    The really depressing thing is that in order to truly and permanently solve the problem, Western nations would have to suppress open borders activists with a vigor approaching that which the communists and nazis suppressed their enemies. Think about it. Suppose we iStevers could snap our fingers together and magically transport the unwanted immigrants and their (non-interbreeding) descendants back to their homelands instantly and without violence. What then? Academia, government, media, business, and most importantly, the education system, are still in the hands of the people who think the world described by Neal Stephenson in Snow Crash is a utopia. They'd just exercise the levers of power as they always have, flood our countries with a vengeance, and in a few decades we'd be right back where we started.

    People like this Charlemagne fellow are basically the HIV virus in human form. And just as modern medicine can't cure HIV, modern western countries don't really have the intellectual, emotional or legal means to deal with them. Technically none of them will have committed a crime, even though they are the most treasonous bunch to ever walk the earth. How do we deal with them?

    In some sense, the globalists have already won, because to comprehensively deal with the spiritual, intellectual and physical destruction they have wrought will require western countries to exhibit levels of brutality that they have not shown in seven decades. And then what? How do we turn that off and go back to being our pleasant selves?

    Maybe Charlemagne will realize the error in his ways in fifty years or so, when, cold and hungry, he manages to drag his frail body within sight of the Hungarian border wall, now extended to protect the entire boundary with Western Europe. He queues behind a line of starving, beaten whites from France, Britain, Ireland, Sweden and Germany.

    Of course he's a Jew. There is no other way to explain this crazed hostility.

    I'm getting really worried about the future. It can't continue as things are going. The Jews will eventually need to be stripped of a lot of their power in Western countries - it has got to happen (and it's just).

    It could be done peacefully (with some rancour) in the same way the Jews de-legitimized the Catholic Church's power in our culture -- through relentless criticism, mockery and legal/cultural maneuvering, but that took a very long time. This also presumes the Jews play fair and will accept a demotion without violence, like the elites who came before them (I have doubts).

    I really feel a major upheaval is coming. Probably sooner than most imagine. I can't see any solution. I can think of many solutions myself, that would lead to better outcomes for all, but the Jews will never accept anything short of global government with themselves at the helm. We simply don't get to opt out of the Jewish plan.

    That’s only about 2.5 billion people willing to move to the USA. I’m not exactly sure why they put this graphic in the business section. It’s got a happy stick figure man walking with a briefcase towards a street sign pointing to the US. Do they not expect people to be appalled? Concerned?
