European Death Wish

L'Arche de la Défense

One of the interesting bylines of the dismally failing, alien driven, Ubuntuist secular humanist project, is European demographic suicide.

2.1 children per woman are needed to replace the existing population. In 2004 Germany's birthrate was 1.3, Italy's 1.2, Spain's 1.1, Italy's 1.2, France's 1.7 and so one, with 18 countries in the E.U. failing to reproduce at replacement rate. This will mean, amongst other things, that over 50% of the European populace will be will be at, or over, retirement age by mid-century, supported by a shrinking workforce. Pundits, such as Mark Steyn, predict the collapse of current social programs and the advent of "Eurabia".

Perhaps Steyn is right, but one thing's certain, we're witnessing a crisis of Western civilisational morale - the demographics listed above represent a greater population decline than at any time since the Black Death. Why has this come about?

George Weigel, in the fortunately easy to read "The Cube and the Cathedral" (see picture of neo-brutalist 'Cube' above), believes World War One acted as a sort of catalyst for various destructive currents of thought - he lists Comte, Fuerbach, Nietzche, and others, while quoting Solzhenitsyn:

"That war (WWI)... took place when Europe, bursting with health and abundance, fell into a rage of self-mutilation that could not but sap its strength for a century or more, perhaps forever. The only possible explanation for this is a mental eclipse among the leaders of Europe due to their lost awareness of a Supreme Power over them... Only the loss of that higher intuition which comes from God could have allowed the West to accept calmly, after World War I, the protracted agony of Russia as she was being torn apart by a band of cannibals."

Powerful words and, I think, true. What's needed, according to Weigel and Benedictus XVI, is a recovery of the value posited by the authour of Gulag Archepeligo et al. I would agree, but what do I know? I'm just a country LSP.

Anyway, off to make a dent in the hog demographic tomorrow - setting up at first light with enough weaponry to take on what's left of the British Army.

More anon,

I don't know how long it will be before the national language of Germany is changed to Turkish. However when you walk the streets of any major city, you know it's not THAT far off.

LSP said...

Yes - and the silence from the Western mind is deafening.

The Chester/Belloc consortium was eerily prescient...

meanwhile the media demonize those brave young chavettes who selflessly raise the next generation of consumers and tax payers.

Tom grumbles:

Caedite eos! Novit enim Dominus qui sunt eius!

LSP said...

Good call. Of course they have the effrontery to reproduce, which cheats the "population bomb malthusians" - if you'll forgive the phrase.

Its odd, don't you think, that the media almost completely ignores Europe's population implosion?


PS. Check out Margaret Sanger, founder of planned parenthood, friend of Hitler, Havelock Ellis & other nasties.
it speaks to your point.

LSP said...

...and thanks, Tom, for the "caedite eos..." and again, "Mea est vindicta, dicit Dominus" (vengeance is mine says the Lord). I find it somewhat scary to see the 'vindicta' playing out before our eyes.

I READ SANGER'S BOOK! Even still have it on the shelf somewhere. "What Every Girl Should Know", 1920. She was transparent then too, Long before Hitler.

LSP said...

Sanger is BAD.

It's not hard to draw the dots between her, Ellis, Crowley etc. But AH is enough.

when you get down to it, its all about death - sorry to sound JPII but there you go.
