I bid you stand, Men of the West!

AngloAmerican asks, does anyone else get the feeling that the world is losing its grip on civilization?

It appears (at least to me) that we are undergoing a major reshuffling of people and cultures around the world, events that are causing a great deal of social turmoil. One natural human instinct is to move away from cultural clashes and the general unpleasantness they produce. However, this instinct will give only short-term relief. If we value our civilization and the future of our children and grandchildren, the people of the west will eventually have to make a stand or succumb to the barbarians at the gates.

Better sooner then later, my friends.

The Rape of Europe
From the desk of Paul Belien

The German author Henryk M. Broder recently told the Dutch newspaper De Volkskrant (12 October) that young Europeans who love freedom, better emigrate. Europe as we know it will no longer exist 20 years from now. Whilst sitting on a terrace in Berlin, Broder pointed to the other customers and the passers-by and said melancholically: “We are watching the world of yesterday.”

Europe is turning Muslim. As Broder is sixty years old he is not going to emigrate himself. “I am too old,” he said. However, he urged young people to get out and “move to Australia or New Zealand. That is the only option they have if they want to avoid the plagues that will turn the old continent inhabitable.”

Broder is convinced that the Europeans are not willing to oppose islamization. “The dominant ethos,” he told De Volkskrant, “is perfectly voiced by the stupid blonde woman author with whom I recently debated. She said that it is sometimes better to let yourself be raped than to risk serious injuries while resisting. She said it is sometimes better to avoid fighting than run the risk of death.”

In a recent op-ed piece in the Brussels newspaper De Standaard (23 October) the Dutch (gay and self-declared “humanist”) author Oscar Van den Boogaard refers to Broder’s interview. Van den Boogaard says that to him coping with the islamization of Europe is like “a process of mourning.” He is overwhelmed by a “feeling of sadness.” “I am not a warrior,” he says, “but who is? I have never learned to fight for my freedom. I was only good at enjoying it.”

This is why they have come to hate Israel and America so much, and the small band of European “islamophobes” who dare to talk about what they see happening around them. West Europeans have to choose between submission (islam) or death. I fear, like Broder, that they have chosen submission – just like in former days when they preferred to be red than dead.

Mexican rule, white exodus
I know several Californians who are taking a good look at re-migrating to Europe—to Scandinavia, in particular—as the annexation of the American Southwest by Mexico accelerates. Those who have gone over to take a look-see are of the same opinion as me: Though threatening, the Muslim immigrant presence in most of those countries is nowhere near as overwhelming in raw numbers, nor as inescapably toxic to the white culture and quality of life, as is the Mestizo Mexican engulfment of this part of the U.S.

Personally, I’ve felt more at home in smaller towns in Sweden than in the increasingly alien, third-world landscapes of once-familiar suburban California, U.S.A.

South Africa's deepening malaise
South Africa is at peace, and enjoying the longest period of growth in many years.
Unemployment has just fallen by more than half a million, to a six-year low.
And opinion polls show that most people are still optimistic about their country.
But just below the surface there seems to be a deep malaise. At the heart of the problem is that President Mbeki has led his country down a road many are now questioning.

The left and the trade unions call for large-scale nationalisation and socialism.
But the government is locked into policies that favour business and globalisation.
Many believe not enough has been achieved for the poor since the end of apartheid, and are no longer prepared to sit in silence. As the president's own brother, Moeletsi Mbeki put it, the governing alliance is now like a married couple on the brink of divorce.

If this is the perspective of the left in the black community, then the feelings of whites and many coloured people and Indians is equally bitter, but for different reasons. The sky-high murder rate has convinced many they are not even safe when they shelter behind high walls and razor wire, even though crime rates are falling.
And their sons and daughters, many of whom were not even born when apartheid was in place, now cannot find jobs because affirmative action reserves them for blacks. A fifth of the white population has left in the past 10 years, taking their skills and much of their wealth with them.
