From the NYT:

Europe’s New Border Controls Exact a Cost
By LIZ ALDERMAN and JAMES KANTER MARCH 1, 2016

FREILASSING, Germany — Traffic along one of Europe’s busiest highways, which used to flow unimpeded, now often backs up for miles at a newly installed checkpoint, where a phalanx of German police officers screens trucks and cars for hidden migrants.

At this border crossing, as a result, Austrians who work in Germany have trouble getting to their jobs. Many companies in Germany must wait days longer for deliveries of food, machine parts and other goods. Shoppers who made quick weekend jaunts to Freilassing’s stores now mostly stay away.

“It’s really bad,” said Karl Pichler, the owner of a large gardening center here in Freilassing, whose sales of tulips, rose bushes and other plants has slumped as longtime customers from Austria have stopped coming.

More than two decades after much of Europe began abolishing border controls under the so-called Schengen Agreement, the free movement of people and products between countries has helped transform the European Union into the world’s largest economy.

But as the bloc now grapples with the biggest migration crisis since World War II, the revival of checkpoints on some of the region’s most important transport routes is crimping commerce and threatening to cost billions of euros in lost business just as Europe is recovering from a six-year economic slump.

… Of the 28 countries in the European Union, 22 have passport-free arrangements, with Britain as one of the notable exceptions. But the lines are quickly being redrawn across Europe.

Since autumn, Austria, Denmark, France, Norway and Sweden have joined Germany in imposing and extending temporary border checks. Belgium last week temporarily shut its border with France. Fences have gone up on various other borders including ones in Hungary, Serbia and Croatia, and along the Austrian-Slovenian frontier.

Heckuva job, Merkely! Inviting in a million Merkel Youth from Syria, Afghanistan, and Eritrea sure did the European Union a lot of good.

But when the Chancellor of Germany decides to trash the European Union’s rules on refugees and impose a New Order upon Europe, she is praised for upholding “Europeanism” (i.e., harming Europeans). When the Prime Minister of Hungary attempts to defend Europe by enforcing the European Union rule on refugees that Germany discarded without even consulting the rest of the EU, he is denounced as a Nazi and forced to back down.

Why?

Because the ruling passion of our time is “anti-racism,” which isn’t a principle, it’s simply animus against white Europeans.

    Soros says Putin’s Syrian War led to ‘refugees’.

    But studies say only 20%(if that) of the arrivals are from Syria.

    Most are ‘Syrians’ from Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Kurdish areas, even Africa.

    And those areas were destabilized long before Russia entered the war.

    And if I remember correctly, Putin didn’t want Gadfly deposed and Libya destabilized, thus leading to tons of migrants from all over Africa.

    Actually, I was talking the other day with a relative who grew up in Germany in the post-war era. It was a bizarre conversation.

    She approved of Merkel letting in the refugees because Germany had an obligation due to its past to be especially humanitarian. She then mentioned that her cousin who still lives in Germany was talking about how the women in her city were afraid to walk around at night because so many immigrants just hang around on the streets yelling at them.

    I told her about how last year's wave of refugees - if they're allowed to stay and have families - would increase Germany's Muslim long-term population from ~8% to ~15% and that a couple of years of this would result in Germany having a permanent Muslim population of easily 25%. She thought that would be terrible for Germany.

    So, I said, you approve of Merkel even though what she's doing will destroy Germany as we know it? I then pointed to my two daughters and said that German girls their age will have to deal with Muslim men on the streets because of Merkel and her policies, which you approve of.

    My relative got quite irate (as did my wife, her daughter), saying she didn't want to talk about it anymore.

    I suspect that my mother-in-law's outlook on the issue (severe cognitive dissonance and just bury your head in the sand) is pretty common in Germany.

    For me, it was very strange to watch. It made me realize just how deeply people don't want to think about the issues (and how much they really dislike someone forcing them to) that we discuss so openly here.

    French Jewish intellectuals and politicians (like Bernard-Henri Lévy, Laurent Fabius, Bernard Kouchner, Jack Lang) overwhelmingly and vehemently support the opening of EU borders to migrants. There are few exceptions, like journalist Eric Zemmour and philosopher Alain Finkielkraut.

    Meanwhile, thousands of French Jews leave France for Israel because being a Jew in a neighborhood with many Muslim immigrants is becoming increasingly unpleasant and even dangerous. In the area east of Paris where I live (Seine Saint-Denis) Jews have stopped sending their children to public schools.

    It seems to me like the majority of French Jewish intellectuals think that it's worthy to destroy their own future in France, if as a result France becomes majority Muslim and African in one or two generations.

    The French Prime Minister, Manuel Valls, has a Jewish wife, and he is very pro-Zionist. He's also a close friend of Bernard-Henri Lévy. Jewish influence in France is maximal, and frankly I don't think that it's good for the native white gentile French.

    The whole idea of the EU is easier trade and economic integration heading towards a Europe without borders which sounds so cool in a progressive/liberal/lefty way. So what do Merkel etc then proceed to do? They decide to sabotage and ruin this all by encouraging so many "migrants" to "migrate" to Northern Europe that national border controls and checkpoints need to be reinstituted. Thus killing economic activity.

    Also take note of all the "migrant" created chaos at Calais which forces backups and long delays for trucking trying to get through the tunnel to the UK.

    Greece has hundreds of islands in the Aegean. If Turkey won't take the rapefugees back, plop them down on a few of the islands. Tell them that's where they will stay, in tents, and the only way off the island is to return to their home countries. Eventually they will leave. Greece will be honoring its commitment to the refugee convention but discouraging people from coming.

    Migration Crisis Plan

    We should be fair about our analysis of the migrants. But one need not be a terrorist to be unhelpful, expensive, disruptive, destabilizing and detrimental to European culture – the most common Mideastern/North African/Islamic values, mindset and lifestyle can be quite enough. Europeans are well within their rights to decide which, if any, foreign citizens without proper documentation they want to allow entry into their countries. Although analysis of the situation is right and necessary, the top priority right now should be for the EU and UN to implement a system for immediate transport of all people who show up uninvited on Europe’s doorstep to a faraway place, fingerprinting, photographing and identifying them, quickly transporting economic migrants back home, and humanely detaining and caring for refugees. The processing and sanctuary center should have a temperate climate, be far enough away from Europe and migrants’ places of origin so that leakage in and out is prevented, and a place with enough space and stability that control can be maintained without political problems and where compensatory agreements can be attractive to the host. Large South American countries come to mind as possibilities. The refugees would not be allowed to melt into the country’s native population and infrastructure: the intention is to provide sanctuary for those who need it, not to provide ‘a better life’ or to victimize the host country economically or culturally.. Implementation of this system would be cost-shared among all signatory countries and would eliminate the infighting and giant mess we currently see. Economies of scale would keep the cost down, and once the system was understood, migrant numbers would decrease dramatically – to the benefit of Europe (and in some ways the migrants themselves) and the detriment of smugglers.
    Perhaps one of the most important benefits, although intangible and difficult to measure, would be the restoration of confidence in Europe’s citizens that their government is performing its function, has not abrogated its responsibility to them, and that their laws have meaning.
    With this ethically sound, effective and feasible system implemented, all other good and helpful actions in regard to any of these people that may be decided by any country’s citizens would still be possible.
    Leaders – why wait? The costs of delay are enormous.

    The “antiracist” “diversity” narrative collapses for obvious reasons.

    First, “diversity” never means anything other than Less White People. When is any country or institution “too black” “too yellow” etc. and needing of white diversity?

    If “diversity” is such a gift, why are self-proclaimed “diversity advocates” not prioritizing this blessing to places that have much less of it, like Africa or Asia?

    The only goal is No-White-Anything-Anywhere. That’s the real “Privilege” reserved for just white people.

    Surely there is a word for racial/cultural replacement targeting an ethnic group?

    Second, “racist” “white supremacist” etc. only means person who believes white people should have borders like everyone else. Asia for Asians, Africa for Africans, Europe for Everybody! Notice that and you’re a racistsupremacistkkknaziprivelege.

    North America and Australia are arguably different, but even then, the logic is ridiculous. If you believe they belong to the Aboriginals, and we’re all on stolen land, then how does inviting millions more burglars to this supposedly stolen land help the Aboriginals? Has anyone bothered to ask them? And surely if you believe that your property is stolen, your first obligation is to give it back?

    Also, notice the narrative switches at that point from Diversity is a Strength! To Diversity is your Punishment!

    “Antiracists” and “diversity advocates” are never willing to define what exactly diversity, racist, white supremacist mean, because it shows their ideology to be nothing but fanatical antiwhite hostility.

    Tweetables:

    Antiracist is code for Antiwhite

    Diversity just means No-White-Anything-Anywhere

    Yes, because we know that other than "white Europeans" there is just no evidence of racism among any of the anyone other than "white Europeans" whatsoever.

    And we know this because other races have routinely sacrificed somewhere between 1.5% and 5% of their most useful and productive people in a bloody and costly civil war to free the members of some other race (e.g. the enslaved Africans sold to Europeans by white Europeans - no, wait, sold to Europeans by Africans!)

    Please, if it isn't too much trouble, offer the twelve or twenty easily retrieved instances that exceed the pain, suffering, dislocation and sorrow of other races sacrificing to serve the interests of another race.

    Or if twelve or twenty is too many how about nine or eight? Because we all know that Muslims, American Indians, African-Americans, Hindu mystics, Buddhists, Zoroastrians, Gays, Lesbians, Gay-lesbians, Lesbian-Gays, Transgenders, Gender-transpians, Sheep-lovers, goat-lovers, dog-and-or-cat lovers, and necrophiliacs have all done more for their fellow human that the average-run-of-the-mill-white-European.

    Because the ruling passion of our time is “anti-racism,” which isn’t a principle, it’s simply animus against white Europeans.

    ---------------------

    I see where you're coming from. But the genesis of anti-racism was a response to the real racism of white Europeans. It's morphed and become decadent, but is surely not simply animus against white people, who have earned through their history no animus at all.

    But the genesis of anti-racism was a response to the real racism of white Europeans.

    Yes, because we know that other than “white Europeans” there is just no evidence of racism among any of the anyone other than “white Europeans” whatsoever.

    And we know this because other races have routinely sacrificed somewhere between 1.5% and 5% of their most useful and productive people in a bloody and costly civil war to free the members of some other race (e.g. the enslaved Africans sold to Europeans by white Europeans – no, wait, sold to Europeans by Africans!)

    Please, if it isn’t too much trouble, offer the twelve or twenty easily retrieved instances that exceed the pain, suffering, dislocation and sorrow of other races sacrificing to serve the interests of another race.

    Or if twelve or twenty is too many how about nine or eight? Because we all know that Muslims, American Indians, African-Americans, Hindu mystics, Buddhists, Zoroastrians, Gays, Lesbians, Gay-lesbians, Lesbian-Gays, Transgenders, Gender-transpians, Sheep-lovers, goat-lovers, dog-and-or-cat lovers, and necrophiliacs have all done more for their fellow human that the average-run-of-the-mill-white-European.

    Because we know that nobody but white Europeans have earned any animus at all. Not even a scintilla.

    Anyone who believes white Europeans were/are any more racist than anyone else, needs to travel outside of western nations and preferably live in a couple of non-white ones.

    Migration Crisis Plan

    We should be fair about our analysis of the migrants. But one need not be a terrorist to be unhelpful, expensive, disruptive, destabilizing and detrimental to European culture - the most common Mideastern/North African/Islamic values, mindset and lifestyle can be quite enough. Europeans are well within their rights to decide which, if any, foreign citizens without proper documentation they want to allow entry into their countries. Although analysis of the situation is right and necessary, the top priority right now should be for the EU and UN to implement a system for immediate transport of all people who show up uninvited on Europe's doorstep to a faraway place, fingerprinting, photographing and identifying them, quickly transporting economic migrants back home, and humanely detaining and caring for refugees. The processing and sanctuary center should have a temperate climate, be far enough away from Europe and migrants’ places of origin so that leakage in and out is prevented, and a place with enough space and stability that control can be maintained without political problems and where compensatory agreements can be attractive to the host. Large South American countries come to mind as possibilities. The refugees would not be allowed to melt into the country’s native population and infrastructure: the intention is to provide sanctuary for those who need it, not to provide 'a better life' or to victimize the host country economically or culturally.. Implementation of this system would be cost-shared among all signatory countries and would eliminate the infighting and giant mess we currently see. Economies of scale would keep the cost down, and once the system was understood, migrant numbers would decrease dramatically - to the benefit of Europe (and in some ways the migrants themselves) and the detriment of smugglers.
    Perhaps one of the most important benefits, although intangible and difficult to measure, would be the restoration of confidence in Europe's citizens that their government is performing its function, has not abrogated its responsibility to them, and that their laws have meaning.
    With this ethically sound, effective and feasible system implemented, all other good and helpful actions in regard to any of these people that may be decided by any country’s citizens would still be possible.
    Leaders - why wait? The costs of delay are enormous.

But the immigration crisis is on the level of a major disaster, like an earthquake or a volcanic eruption. Governments have the power and the ability to respond quickly to disasters.

    The AfD is well down, although moving upwards and has reached the level of the Greens and the far-left.

    There is a bit of a cocoon aspect to political blogs. Here everyone assumes everyone must be against the mass migration into Europe. And indeed in a few countries (where the migrants don’t want to go anyways) that’s true.

    But because one comment feeds on another people here think that must be true also in Germany, Scandinavia and the UK (the actual migrant destinations).

    But its not. And Angela Merkel who actually knows how to win elections in Germany is probably right as to German public opinion.

    How about this: most diseases have fairly short times between infection and onset. And they cannot be deadly, because if they kill their host they can't spread. But in this case, we may well have a deadly disease which takes years, possibly generations before it takes full effect.

    I'm going to stick with mechanistic explanations for this slow-motion trainwreck because, well, when you look at the politicians, at least in France, you know they aren't masterminds carefully working out dastardly schemes. They're moderately competent people trying their usual moderately successful recipes to solve extraordinary problems.

    The same goes for our fellow citizens. Most people are nice and want to be nice, and that's worked out pretty well for them so far. So they think: let's keep doing this.

    Certainly "anti-white racism" is part of the list of "nice" recipes that seem to have served us well and made us feel good in the past generation or two. But it's clearly not the only, nor the most important one. You can add anti-men, pro-globalism, anti-reproduction, pro-choice, pro-drug, anti-rules, anti-borders, anti-tradition, pro-rebellion, pro-deconstruction, etc.

    Steve has pointed out many times that the nice things that work, say, in Cambridge Mass. and San Francisco don't work so well in Ferguson or New Orleans. Similarly, what works well in times with natural borders, strong traditions, non-computer-time, etc. does not work so well in these radically different times.

Even if the EU rulers didn't feel able to stop the invasion at this point, they would at least express a desire to do so, and they haven't done that.

    When Austria was a sovereign, independent, self-governing nation, prior to 1995, was life in Austria *really* that bad in that ‘lack of free movement’ or in other words the state’s unreserved right to monitor incoming goods and persons, caused perpetual shortages and economic damage? As I recall, Austria had an enviable standard of living back in 95, and thriving industry.

    Greece is trying to send back some of its migrants to Turkey, and Turkey is being uncooperative, surprise, surprise. Greece has handled the migrant crisis badly, mostly because of being poor, overcrowded, and understaffed/funded, although I could believe a portion of the conspiracy-ish theory that we didn't act in good faith. There were definitely some passive-aggressive remarks by government clowns about unleashing chaos on northern Europe. But I'm surprised and worried by how little crap Turkey has gotten throughout all of this. It's very difficult to understand where the allegiances of our most powerful people in Europe lie, and to what ends.

    Greece has hundreds of islands in the Aegean. If Turkey won’t take the rapefugees back, plop them down on a few of the islands. Tell them that’s where they will stay, in tents, and the only way off the island is to return to their home countries. Eventually they will leave. Greece will be honoring its commitment to the refugee convention but discouraging people from coming.

    Speaking of nice European things, I think you posted something recently about the Venus of Venice, but I can’t find it now. Anyhow, I put the two side by side, and I don’t think it’s fair to say the roller-skater looks remarkably like the Botticelli.

    https://chrisnonymous.tumblr.com/post/140317564254

    As you can see, the line from the bottom of the rib cage to the top of the femur is such that the Venice Venus’ voluptuousness is much more a function of hip shift. Likewise, her arm is tucked much closer to her body, which suggests less torso mass. She’s definitely on the Twiggy end of the spectrum rather than the Willendorf end compared to Botticelli’s.

    The “antiracist” “diversity” narrative collapses for obvious reasons.

    - First, “diversity” never means anything other than Less White People. When is any country or institution “too black” “too yellow” etc. and needing of white diversity?

    If “diversity” is such a gift, why are self-proclaimed “diversity advocates” not prioritizing this blessing to places that have much less of it, like Africa or Asia?

    The only goal is No-White-Anything-Anywhere. That’s the real “Privilege” reserved for just white people.

    Surely there is a word for racial/cultural replacement targeting an ethnic group?

    - Second, “racist” “white supremacist” etc. only means person who believes white people should have borders like everyone else. Asia for Asians, Africa for Africans, Europe for Everybody! Notice that and you’re a racistsupremacistkkknaziprivelege.

    North America and Australia are arguably different, but even then, the logic is ridiculous. If you believe they belong to the Aboriginals, and we’re all on stolen land, then how does inviting millions more burglars to this supposedly stolen land help the Aboriginals? Has anyone bothered to ask them? And surely if you believe that your property is stolen, your first obligation is to give it back?

    Also, notice the narrative switches at that point from Diversity is a Strength! To Diversity is your Punishment!

    “Antiracists” and “diversity advocates” are never willing to define what exactly diversity, racist, white supremacist mean, because it shows their ideology to be nothing but fanatical antiwhite hostility.

    Tweetables:

    Antiracist is code for Antiwhite

    Actually, I was talking the other day with a relative who grew up in Germany in the post-war era. It was a bizarre conversation.

    She approved of Merkel letting in the refugees because Germany had an obligation due to its past to be especially humanitarian. She then mentioned that her cousin who still lives in Germany was talking about how the women in her city were afraid to walk around at night because so many immigrants just hang around on the streets yelling at them.

    I told her about how last year’s wave of refugees – if they’re allowed to stay and have families – would increase Germany’s Muslim long-term population from ~8% to ~15% and that a couple of years of this would result in Germany having a permanent Muslim population of easily 25%. She thought that would be terrible for Germany.

    So, I said, you approve of Merkel even though what she’s doing will destroy Germany as we know it? I then pointed to my two daughters and said that German girls their age will have to deal with Muslim men on the streets because of Merkel and her policies, which you approve of.

    My relative got quite irate (as did my wife, her daughter), saying she didn’t want to talk about it anymore.

    I suspect that my mother-in-law’s outlook on the issue (severe cognitive dissonance and just bury your head in the sand) is pretty common in Germany.

    For me, it was very strange to watch. It made me realize just how deeply people don’t want to think about the issues (and how much they really dislike someone forcing them to) that we discuss so openly here.

Take sharing: it's not natural to share with strangers, but it works great, and indeed can be a requirement, in certain environments. For example, in my own field, "open source software" is a mad-seeming practice that pays off if done right (or maybe it's a plot by Jewish hippies intent on destroying our civilization, you decide). Same for scientific research, business, etc.

    > look at how ethnocentric and xenophobic Israelis or Chinese are compared to whites

    Yup, and see how many forces in those societies encourage them to be more open to foreign things as a key to success. Is this just due to "subtle propaganda by the media and entertainment industry"? I don't think so. Not to mention the punishing demographic deficit in Asian societies that increases pressure to let in foreigners in as xenophobic a place as Korea.

    > Politicians pass the laws allowing immigration. Simple arithmetic tells them that the end result will be...

    Immigration is a great example of something that works well in certain contexts, quantities, and qualities, and not well at all in others. It seems to have been pretty good for the US at many times of its history.

    My point is that people aren't very good at adjusting. Until recently it was a great sign of progress and modernity for formerly closed societies to open their minds and their societies to foreign ideas. And now you tell us progress requires us to do the opposite? Make up your mind! (I'm trying to represent the point of view of all those pro-immigration people, it's not my own, obviously).

    > the whole system is geared to make mass immigration unavoidable

    Exactly.

    > none of this came about by accident

    You seem to be suggesting there has been a sinister motive behind this. I'm saying there was not. There may be some sinister and selfish motive for not changing the system faster. But I argue it's mostly inertia. And it's objectively hard to change a system that used to work well without breaking it.

    French Jewish intellectuals and politicians (like Bernard-Henri Lévy, Laurent Fabius, Bernard Kouchner, Jack Lang) overwhelmingly and vehemently support the opening of EU borders to migrants. There are few exceptions, like journalist Eric Zemmour and philosopher Alain Finkielkraut.

    Meanwhile, thousands of French Jews leave France for Israel because being a Jew in a neighborhood with many Muslim immigrants is becoming increasingly unpleasant and even dangerous. In the area east of Paris where I live (Seine Saint-Denis) Jews have stopped sending their children to public schools.

    It seems to me like the majority of French Jewish intellectuals think that it's worthy to destroy their own future in France, if as a result France becomes majority Muslim and African in one or two generations.

    The French Prime Minister, Manuel Valls, has a Jewish wife, and he is very pro-Zionist. He's also a close friend of Bernard-Henri Lévy. Jewish influence in France is maximal, and frankly I don't think that it's good for the native white gentile French.

  86. “Because the ruling passion of our time is “anti-racism,” which isn’t a principle, it’s simply animus against white Europeans.”

    Silly end to a good article. I think Lawrence Auster had the best angle on this: obviously there are people who have an animus against Whites, but if “anti-racism” is just animus against Whites then why do (at least) a significant minority of Whites everywhere in the world, and the vast majority of educated respectable Whites believe in it.

    Anti-racism has 3 planks.

    1) There are no important differences between racial groups.
    2) It is very bad to discriminate against people because of their membership of a different group.
    3) Any policy or system that has a disparate impact on racial groups is bad.

    (1) is plainly false. (2) is an exaggeration of a truth. It is wrong to treat an individual about whom you have information differently based upon his membership of a racial (or any other) category. For instance, it is true that Blacks are disproportionately likely to be criminal, but it is wrong to treat a black whom you know not to be a criminal as if he were one. However, it is not wrong to judge another group based upon real differences, nor is it wrong (at least not in every circumstance) to judge an individual about whom you do not have information based upon his membership of a particular group (i.e. Derb’s famous black hitchhiker in the Bronx dilemma). (3) logically follows from (1) and (2). If all racial groups are equal then any policy that produces a disparate impact must actually be discriminatory, which is always, allegedly, bad. However, since (1) is demonstrably false, it’s a moot point.

    Now, it’s true that some people advocate anti-racism as a cover for what is really anti-white animus. Further, it’s possible for extreme anti-racism to develop into anti-white animus. Since any disparate impact is bad, and since it is always Whites (and Chinese) who benefit disparately, therefore Whites are benefiting from something bad, so they are bad. Also, in certain social circles, people may start to develop anti-white animus as a way of proving they are not racist, just as in alt-right circles people start defending everything Trump has ever done or said to prove that they are not neocons.

    Bottom line, though, the millions and millions of White Germans who will vote once again either for Merkel or for politicians who are even more pro-immigration than she is are not driven by anti-white animus, they sincerely believe in anti-racism, or they make themselves believe it because feigning a belief in something to maintain social respectability is more psychologically burdensome than most people can bear.

If the thought was that a mixed race Europe would make traditional right wing divisions and wars impossible... well, that's just an extremely silly and uninformed idea and shows no familiarity with what has actually happened in places where effectively that has occurred.

    For instance, look up the War of the Pacific:


    "...took place from 1879 to 1883, with Bolivia and Peru on one side and Chile on the other. ...

    ...Battles were fought in the Pacific Ocean, the the Atacama Desert, Peru's deserts, and mountainous regions in the Andes.

    ...The war had a profound and long lasting impact on the societies of the involved countries. The peace negotiations continued until 1929 but the war was finally over in 1884 for all practical purposes..."

    Certainly “anti-white racism” is part of the list of “nice” recipes that seem to have served us well and made us feel good in the past generation or two.
     
    It hasn't served us well, and was never meant to. People who have grown up with it take it for granted, and find it hard to imagine things being any other way. But it took a lot of subtle propaganda by the media and entertainment industry to make the "anti-racist" ideology mainstream and prepare people to accept mass immigration. Accepting the takeover of your country by other races is not the natural thing to do (look at how ethnocentric and xenophobic Israelis or Chinese are compared to whites). It would never have happened if the media, entertainment industry and education system hadn't conditioned people to think that opposing it was "race hatred".

    ...when you look at the politicians, at least in France, you know they aren’t masterminds carefully working out dastardly schemes. They’re moderately competent people trying their usual moderately successful recipes to solve extraordinary problems.
     
    Politicians pass the laws allowing immigration. Simple arithmetic tells them that the end result will be the replacement of the indigenous populations of their countries (although some of them may be too stupid to comprehend the seriousness of it). As for illegal immigration, they just ignore it and it happens by itself. To be fair, they don't have much choice in the matter anymore, because the whole system is geared to make mass immigration unavoidable, barring some major popular revolt (which may be beginning with Trump in America). The UN treaties on refugees and asylum, along with the fact that European countries are under the jurisdiction of the European Court of Human Rights, greatly restrict individual countries' ability to act effectively against immigration. But none of this came about by accident.

    These articles often remind me of the complex subject of subatomic physics. In the end simplicity usually can describe the complex.

    And only ever more simpler equations can be the only true improvement on earlier equations.

    When my kids are baffled by all this horrible stuff of todays news, (they are age 10 and 15), they want explanations from me. Its not easy.

    I find more and more, I direct the kids to read George Orwells “Animal Farm”. The older teen has also read “1984”. Those books, are a bit like physics, and I only get it, when I read the books on quantum physics or string theory over and over, until I do “get it”.

    The Orwell books are, make no mistake, for education, not entertainment.
    One the core themes to be learned from Orwell, of several themes in the books, is :

    If YOU as a manager, candidate, even a country or religion, or a currency..( the list can theoretically be all nouns) MAKE (verb) your enemy managers, enemy candidates, enemy the-guy-who-competes-for-your-lady, enemy country, enemy currencies, etc…,

    or even the less harsh word compared to “enemy”, but rather, “competitor” ;
    competitor manager, competitor candidate… country, religion… competitor currency..

    FAR-WORSE (adjective) than YOURSELF, (yourself and them being that same noun),
    then you succeed, in being the BOSS.

    (perhaps the boss of hell… read Milton, but at least the boss, king, master, lord, senator, general, dictator).

    How many of you hear of retires of the USA, “ex-patriating” everywhere they can?

    I sure hear of it a lot, with first hand info from those departing. I’m in Seattle (ground zero of the suicidal left) , and 60 to 65 year olds are getting on planes and leaving, to Costa Rica, Mexico, Argentina, to Switzerland.(hundreds of countries). And likewise the rif-raff of the world is pouring in, to the welcoming hands of government here.

    So.. how do you as a USA government manager, hedge fund operator, head of the bar-association, and other various modern senior ranking scum of America’s elite, get the folks to stop leaving, and get the rif-raff to keep coming?

    You demonize all that is not you. (you may even need to assist in other places being in havoc, chaos, murder, war, rape)

    If words don’t get the job done (Orwell has a lot to say about words), then you do “stronger things”….., to wreck your … lets just say competitors… country, religion, currencies, etc.

    That’s what has been done to beautiful, sweet, dear Europe. Europe “was” the very splendor and enlightenment that brought Mozart and Einstein. Although my grammar is lousy, “was” is not an error (I’m an engineer). It means “past tense”. Time cant move backwards. But it can be slowed to a crawl.

    Germany, Austria, I was there a few years back. The Europeans peoples in Austria, walking the streets, treated me so nicely, I thought I had gone back in time, to rural Eastern Washington State 1965. The article “Why Europeans Can’t Have Nice Things Anymore..” , its because, someone’s (plural is intended here) has gone about to wreck these things we love.

    Read Lenin, Stalin and Moa.. this almost cant be done from the outside. It takes insiders to do it… Who are they? You elected them.

    Hilary Clinton is often attributed to saying “1984” is her favorite book. But folks, for her, its an instruction manual. For the “normals” (that’s what sociopaths call us), its a nightmare book, to teach us what to avoid. But for her, and so many like her, its an instructional Bible.

    The EU, UN and ppl like Soros are deliberately encouraging it.

    blaming Putin for what they’re doing gives them both invite the world and neocon propaganda at the same time.

    I'm sorry I wasn't clear, nearly everyone on this blog knows and agrees with what you said. What I am trying to understand is why Europeans and others are following this obviously suicidal course. The answer is either we're wrong, and it's not suicidal, which I don't believe, or it's something else. If it's something else, the answer may be the Jews, the Masons, the multinationals, the women, the additives in the water, etc, which I have trouble believing, or something else. I think it's something else, that has to do with the "rhetorical momentum" Steve posted about in his last Taki's Magazine post.

    But I'll also admit I still have a "no one does evil knowingly" bias...

    They do if they’re convinced it’s self-defense – which is partially a function of their level of paranoia and partly a function of the media and what is and isn’t in the history books.

    Actually, I was talking the other day with a relative who grew up in Germany in the post-war era. It was a bizarre conversation.

    She approved of Merkel letting in the refugees because Germany had an obligation due to its past to be especially humanitarian. She then mentioned that her cousin who still lives in Germany was talking about how the women in her city were afraid to walk around at night because so many immigrants just hang around on the streets yelling at them.

    I told her about how last year's wave of refugees - if they're allowed to stay and have families - would increase Germany's Muslim long-term population from ~8% to ~15% and that a couple of years of this would result in Germany having a permanent Muslim population of easily 25%. She thought that would be terrible for Germany.

    So, I said, you approve of Merkel even though what she's doing will destroy Germany as we know it? I then pointed to my two daughters and said that German girls their age will have to deal with Muslim men on the streets because of Merkel and her policies, which you approve of.

    My relative got quite irate (as did my wife, her daughter), saying she didn't want to talk about it anymore.

    I suspect that my mother-in-law's outlook on the issue (severe cognitive dissonance and just bury your head in the sand) is pretty common in Germany.

    For me, it was very strange to watch. It made me realize just how deeply people don't want to think about the issues (and how much they really dislike someone forcing them to) that we discuss so openly here.

    To quote the Derb: We are doomed.

    PC is basically a media created and enforced cult. You can’t debate ppl like that you have to deprogram them in the way cult members are deprogrammed.

    > Accepting the takeover of your country by other races is not the natural thing to do

    Lots of things that are not natural to do are key ingredients in the success of modern societies. Take sharing: it's not natural to share with strangers, but it works great, and indeed can be a requirement, in certain environments. For example, in my own field, "open source software" is a mad-seeming practice that pays off if done right (or maybe it's a plot by Jewish hippies intent on destroying our civilization, you decide). Same for scientific research, business, etc.

    > look at how ethnocentric and xenophobic Israelis or Chinese are compared to whites

    Yup, and see how many forces in those societies encourage them to be more open to foreign things as a key to success. Is this just due to "subtle propaganda by the media and entertainment industry"? I don't think so. Not to mention the punishing demographic deficit in Asian societies that increases pressure to let in foreigners in as xenophobic a place as Korea.

    > Politicians pass the laws allowing immigration. Simple arithmetic tells them that the end result will be...

    Immigration is a great example of something that works well in certain contexts, quantities, and qualities, and not well at all in others. It seems to have been pretty good for the US at many times of its history.

    My point is that people aren't very good at adjusting. Until recently it was a great sign of progress and modernity for formerly closed societies to open their minds and their societies to foreign ideas. And now you tell us progress requires us to do the opposite? Make up your mind! (I'm trying to represent the point of view of all those pro-immigration people, it's not my own, obviously).

    > the whole system is geared to make mass immigration unavoidable

    Exactly.

    > none of this came about by accident

    You seem to be suggesting there has been a sinister motive behind this. I'm saying there was not. There may be some sinister and selfish motive for not changing the system faster. But I argue it's mostly inertia. And it's objectively hard to change a system that used to work well without breaking it.

    There is obviously a sinister motive behind this or they wouldn’t need to lie about it.

    It is a myth that Germany started the two world wars. WW1 basically began inadvertently and the UK and France declared war on Germany in 1939.

    “Inadvertence” “France” or “UK”. Anything but the J-word.

    aaaah, but you want YOUR own daughter or son marrying into the "right" social circles/social ideals, families, ethnic groups - seriously, your entire post is delusional - DELUSIONAL. Post-race/hopeful-neo race (is there even a word?) thought is delusional. And, your writing sucks. You are not a good writer. Come back after you "off" your "anonymous wussiness" name and tell us what you really believe. If you hide behind "anonymous," not one of us cares about your lofty ideas. Bupkus.

    No, that’s me sometimes, sigh. I have to take a lot of antihistamines which messes with my ADHD brain. And, I have many stressors. I know I get slammed for my brainfarts, but somehow, the migrant crisis in Europe and this crazy US election season just compels me like a zombie to tap on the keyboards when I should not, should not ever again. I do make a lot of stupid mistakes, but I’m gonna play the “moody artist” card this time.

    no, sigh, I have to take a lot of antihistamines (which messes with my ADHD) so I regret my brainfarts at times. I know I get slammed for my mistakes – gonna play the “moody artist” card this time. Should not post anymore ( have a lot of stressors), but somehow, the Europe migrant crisis and the insane, unique election year in the US compels me to type like a zombie when I should not, anymore. Steve’s posts are like crack and reading all the erudite (and funny) comments from his legions of posters has been an amazing experience. I have introduced quite a lot of women – all too scared to post anything – (of course, being judicious who I tell; live in a gossipy town) to his site.
