THE DECLINE OF THE WEST...


I’m no anthropologist, and I hate to make snap judgments based on nothing other than numbers, but one of the most alarming aspects of the Decline of the West is the demographic factor. Astonishingly, while “half the population growth in the United States is Hispanic, and only about 10% white,” rather less than 20% of the world’s population is actually still “white.” Nor would anyone question the fact that the various light-skinned races seem to be in terminal decline. Indeed, one senses that the global balance of power is beginning to change, that the Caucasian Millennium is all but over, and that Obama Barack’s bid for presidential power is a first - tentative but symbolic - assault upon Caucasian hubris.

In the case of the UK, with its undoubted alien loyalties, it is claimed that mixed-race Britons are poised to become the country’s largest ethnic minority within twenty-five years. Only a few groups, such as black Africans, are growing faster, while the white British population is actually shrinking by about 100,000 every three years. Which might be an unwelcome precedent for Italy, France and Germany etc., since it has a chilling, apocalyptic dimension. Based on recent statistical calculations, the German nation - unquestionably a great humanist culture, while being thoroughly unpleasant at other times - will be totally extinct in approximately 250 years.

Nor does that mean the streets of Germany are being reclaimed by vegetation.

It simply means the end of one race and the beginning of another. Although no one has seen the relevance of this, from a strictly zoological point of view, sufficient evidence exists to substantiate the claim that within the next three centuries the white Caucasian races will all but have ceased to exist.

And in those trends perhaps, we find the key to this inexorable, widely admired, and deeply significant proclivity of races and cultures to assimilate. Discriminated against and, according to his own conviction, execrated, the Negro might confidently expect to spearhead this trend. For the fact of the matter is, that the concept of “Race” has never distinguished itself as a unifying factor. And the genetic outcome of mixed marriages is hugely persuasive for that reason alone. But while anti-white diatribes are currently articulated with an abandon that would be illegitimate if the objects were black, it is difficult at the same time not to feel any regret for the demise of the purely Caucasian line.

Much would depend, of course, on the nature of the decline. Dumbed down into a service culture with no real sense of its own purpose, the emancipated West has never recovered from the scourge of political correctness which taught its youth to be ashamed of their history. Indeed, the remarkable story of Western imperial expansion, once endowed with grand and epochal meaning, is today so universally maligned as an unprincipled if highly successful history of money-grabbing, that for all its rapacity, nobody seems to want to notice anymore how decisive the pursuit of scientific and geographical discovery has been for the future of human civilization.

The pursuit of knowledge is the cornerstone of our civilization, and while American, Russian and European technologies are still engaged in a series of evolutionary research projects, especially in the fields of cosmology and planetary physics, it is understandable, perhaps, that the idea of interplanetary migration is the furthest thing from the minds of those still in the process of industrial development. But while futurists might well be excited about the prospect of a racially heterogeneous planet, I, myself, wonder sometimes if it is not part of the “white man’s burden”, to force the pace of the “perfectibility of the human race”, and light the fuse that leads into Space, rather than succumb to the law of diminishing returns and face the potential collapse of our advanced technological societies and a possible reversal of human existence, through sheer force of numbers, to the primitive subsistence level?

You have such a panoramic vision, Dreamy. It amazes me that you can predict these large historical shifts from the top of such finely pointed stilettos. Amazing. Really quite amazing.

MichaelSmith said...

The greater height lets her see further Richard, obviously.

I am with Dickie!! Whoever would have thought that a night club hostess would have time for such insights in between tempting people to drink bottles of Perry at £200 a time...

I would marry you and take you away from all that....

Selena Dreamy said...

I really should take you up on that..:))

mutleythedog said...

Well I am up for it - as soon as I can afford a divorce of course... do you know any lawyers?

Yep, we're all children of the Cosmos, Dreamy, but Earth is where we belong. One day, no doubt, we'll be as extinct as dodos - only our consciousness and will live on. That and our libidos.

If white is right and black is beautiful, when can Brown begin?

I think we have a right to know....

Richard Madeley said...

Selena, if you're quitting your quitting your life as a hostess, can I have your job? I can provide my own stilettos.

Selena Dreamy said...

Stilettos, excellent! But erm...is there a pole in your house..?!

Well, Richard - for better or for worse - whenever that will be it will be, as Winston Churchill remarked in other circumstances, the end of the beginning...

Very interesting, Selena, and a bold statement.
