The West Is Losing Faith in Its Own Future

Gideon Rachman, Financial Times, December 9, 2013

What defines the west? American and European politicians like to talk about values and institutions. But for billions of people around the world, the crucial point is simpler and easier to grasp. The west is the part of the world where even ordinary people live comfortably. That is the dream that makes illegal immigrants risk their lives, trying to get into Europe or the US.

Yet, even though the lure of the west remains intense, the western world itself is losing faith in its future. Last week Barack Obama gave one of the bleakest speeches of his presidency. In unsparing terms, the US president chronicled the increasing inequality and declining social mobility that, he says, “pose a fundamental threat to the American dream, our way of life and what we stand for around the world”.

A Pew Research Center opinion survey, conducted in 39 countries this spring, asked: “Will children in your country be better off than their parents?” Only 33 per cent of Americans believed their children would live better, while 62 per cent said they would live worse. Europeans were even gloomier. Just 28 per cent of Germans, 17 per cent of Brits, 14 per cent of Italians and 9 per cent of French thought their children would be better off than previous generations. This western pessimism contrasts strongly with optimism in the developing world: 82 per cent of Chinese, 59 per cent of Indians and 65 per cent of Nigerians believe in a more prosperous future.

It would be nice to believe that talk of a decline in western living standards is simply hype. But, unfortunately, the numbers suggest that the public are on to something. According to researchers at the Brookings Institution, the wages of working-age men in the US–adjusted for inflation–have fallen by 19 per cent since 1970. {snip}


There is a connection between the rising optimism in the developing world and the rising pessimism in the west. In his speech last week, Mr Obama remarked that “starting in the late 1970s, the social contract began to unravel”. Perhaps not coincidentally, it was also in the late 1970s that China began to open up.

Even defenders of globalisation now usually acknowledge that the emergence of a global labour force has helped hold down wages in the west. Some European friends of mine daydream that protectionism–or even a war in Asia–could send more well-paid jobs back to the west. But in reality, globalisation seems unlikely ever really to go into reverse, given the technological, economic and political forces pushing it forwards. It would certainly be morally dubious to attempt to bolster western living standards by undermining an economic trend that has dragged hundreds of millions of people out of poverty in the developing world.


If the erosion of living standards continues, how will western voters react? There are already signs of political radicalisation–with the populist right on the rise in both the US and Europe. But, as yet, there is no real sign that the Tea Party in America or nationalist movements in Europe have a realistic shot at controlling the central government in a large nation. The consensus around globalisation also seems to be holding. {snip}

{snip} Another decade of western economic malaise–or, God forbid, another financial crisis–is likely to see more radical solutions and politicians emerging.

    Those aren’t people. Not most of them, anyway…

    • Where is the demand for manufactured products from the developing world – precisely the same demand that is dragging them out of poverty – coming from?

    Hmm…. So, Whites getting poorer is bad because it might make them vote for those who could actually solve their problems ? You need only look at the author’s name, and you’ll understand everything…

    • Ragehol .

      Gideon Rachman, writing for Financial Times? I don’t get it. Sounds White To Me ™.

      • Lt_Greyman_NVA

        Gideon is a good member of the Tribe. Remember your Talmud “toloshebe goyim harog” or “Kill the Best Gentiles”. We must not let them wake up…wait, this is a Hebrew website…right? Oi Vey!

        • Ragehol .

          Well, any time you post anything that isn’t praising jews you get about 20 to 30 percent downvotes before a moderator deletes it.

          I have Taylor’s book, White Identity. He extensively quotes jews and has a chapter in the book on race identity of every major race group in the country. Except jews.

          I sometimes wonder what this website’s game is?
          The jews own our money supply and bilked us all with the mortgage scamming and we don’t ever get to talk about articles
          about that at this website.

          The only time we talk about Israel is in the context of their treatment of black immigrants, which is almost always a congratulatory “WE SHOULD DO THAT HERE!”

          Talking about how the architects of the race destruction of America and the Western world are almost always jews is verboten.

          • Rhialto

            The fact is that attitude toward J’s is only one of the many issues that divide White men trying to save (what’s left of) the West.

          • So CAL Snowman

            Obviously if we start talking about the tribe this site will descend into “Stormfront” like chaos and Amren will lose it’s good standing with the Main Stream Media.

          • Whitetrashgang

            Good standing? What is the point ? Everything on this board was known 50 years ago.The tribe is behind everything that ails us and ignoring it gets you nowhere.

          • AndrewInterrupted

            I never understood how Judeo and Christian ever got assembled together. Anyone familiar with the Old Testament, the Torah, the Talmud would find it quite counterintuitive.

          • Romulus

            A simple answer would be that BOTH judaism and christianity were created by the Juden.

          • Romulus

            The media of course owned and operated by the tribe.

          • Truthseeker

            I can’t speak for Mr. Taylor, but my impression of him is that he welcomes allies of any race, as long as they can help further the cause of preserving Western (white) culture. I think that approach is a reasonable one.

            Mr. Taylor has acknowledged that many leaders in the movement toward Cultural Marxism are Jews. He doesn’t deny that there’s an issue there. However, there are Jews who are on our side, and at this current time, when whites are still regaining their sense of racial identity, it helps to have as many credible voices for our position as possible. Say what you will about the Jews, they are a highly intelligent people, and they are more similar to Gentile whites than blacks, Hispanics or Asians. Alienating people who are willing to work with us for the same goals is not the best way to advance our interests.

            Let’s win the battle for white identity first, then discuss the implications of the Jew-Gentile divide.

          • Alexandra1973

            Yep. You can be pro-White and not be anti-Semite.

            It’s Jewish leaders, sadly, who have sold out to their “Caesar.”

            They also need to ditch that damned Talmud.

          • Romulus

            The tribe has never been on OUR side. They simply switch their allegiance depending on which way the wind (or money) flows.

          • Alexandra1973

            You should read Avro Manhattan’s “Vatican Billions.”

  • cecilhenry

    RAce people race. The WEst is defined by race as are all peoples and civilizations.

    Deny that and you are promoting Genocide.

    Millions of non-whites in the West do NOT make the WEst. The are other peoples’ trying to use the WEst for their own interests.

    Start speaking the plain truth.

    • AndrewInterrupted

      Yes, it’s multiculturalism versus assimilation.

      Assimilation=America lives.
      Multiculturalism=America dies.

      • Triarius

        Assimilating non-whites into a white country would still kill the country, even America.

        • AndrewInterrupted

          It isn’t the ideal option, I agree.

          Assimilation buffers some of the ‘guest of America’ mentality that has groups forever taking and not contributing.

          They should be renters, not guests.

          • Pro_Whitey

            Sorry, most of them will have to be repatriated, even the blacks who descended from slaves. Lincoln should have started with that option rather than poking for a fight at Fort Sumter and then calling for troops to crush the few southern states that had then seceded. By provoking a fight and going for violence, Lincoln caused the Confederacy to double in size, and he had to scuttle ships caught at Hampton Roads when Virginia seceded (that, Ron Paul, is blowback). Purchasing slaves from slaveowners in Union states, followed by immediate colonization to Africa, Brazil, or anywhere else would have been the smart policy back then. It is ultimately still the smart policy now.

          • Triarius

            They should be pen pals.

    Wrong. The west is the part of the world where western people live.

    • So CAL Snowman

      Exactly there is nothing “ordinary” about the White race.

  • sbuffalonative

    What defines the west? White people. No matter how they my mimic us or live among us, they aren’t white and white defines the west.

  • WR_the_realist

    The increasing inequality is due to two things: Massive outsourcing of middle class jobs, which neither major party has any intention of stopping, and massive immigration of marginal people. As usual, the progressives bemoan the situation that their own policies created.

    • “… and massive immigration of marginal people.”

      Which, to further use your words, neither major party has any intention of stopping.

      I would love to get a sneak peek at what historians of a thousand years from now will be saying about this period of western culture. What color will these future historians be? What will their civilization(s) be like?

      • Pro_Whitey

        Will there be historians?

      • Zaporizhian Sich

        The photo below will be what comes after what occurs in the photo wherever a large city once was. In other words, the ruling elite is going to use nuclear weapons, engineered or weaponized microbes and man-made famines to kill off “useless eaters.” As it is now, there are enough nuclear weapons alone in the world to kill eight billion people. What is even more dangerous than thermonuclear weapons is the fact that designer diseases could be created to kill off specific races or ethnic groups completely. That is not science fiction, it is a real concern among medical geneticists that genome research could lead to this Frankenstein’s monster being created and deployed.

  • Ragehol .

    The Earth’s population has increased from 1 billion to over
    7 billion in approximately 100 years. The situation is as such:
    It is an impossibility to save all these lives because they just create
    more and more and more. I’m going to live to see planet earth
    breach adding an additional 8 billion people in less than 150 years.

    Carrying capacity, anyone?

    Edit: It would be 1 thing if that was 8 billion Whites, but it isn’t. The intellectual
    and moral capacity of the world is sub 100 right now. Global, muddy, idiocracy.

      Great movie. “It’s got electrolytes.”

  • Strike_Team

    An excuse to keep wages artificially low in some areas so that a greedy few can have a few more bucks in their pockets. I’m generalizing, but I am also sure that I am partly correct.

    This hack is another in a long line of troopers for you know who telling us that globalization is inevitable, that it can’t be stopped. Just like those frauds who tell us that it’s impossible to deport millions of illegals.

    • me

      And that ‘global warming is a fact’, ‘if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor’, ‘open borders create wealth’, ‘diversity is strength’, ‘illegal immigrants are undocumented workers’, ‘you didn’t build that’, and ‘we’re from the government, and we’re here to help you’……

    When I look at my grandson, my nieces and nephews and my cousins kids and grand-kids, I grieve. Not because of globalization or even because of lowered economic prospects but because I see the takeover of our countries. Our coming minority status. Our coming persecution. Economies rise and fall over time, that is just a natural cycle and is readily survivable. This has got to be the first time in history where a nation’s elites have worked night and day to destroy the native population. And we westerners know it.

    • Whitetrashgang

      No this is what the tribe does.

      • IstvanIN

        And our own “elites”, for lack of a better term, have willingly and enthusiastically gone along with it.

    • me

      Fear not! Whites have ALWAYS been the minority of the world’s population, Whites have ALWAYS fought against the muddy hordes, Whites have ALWAYS struggled against tyranny in high places, and Whites have ALWAYS triumphed. We are slow to anger, prudent in retaliation, altruistic, highly intelligent and creative, have a deep sense of morality and justice, peace and freedom lovers, and think deeply before we react. We have the power to create and maintain utopias in the West, and the rest of the world envies and covets what we make and have. This was ever the case throughout history. Clueless Whites will awaken soon, and God help those that have been persecuting us for our exceptional gifts and self-created prosperity, for they will reap the wrath of an unstoppable, resilient, brilliant, courageous, and unconquerable foe–the White races!

      • IstvanIN

        Wow, that is poetic. I hope you are right.

  • The premise here is absurd. Higher genuine wages in the developed West, Japan, Taiwan and South Korea would mean an increased demand for exports from the Third World, and thus drive up wages there. I’ll take a look at the clothes I am currently wearing: wool “Land’s End” sweater (USA, but it’s 20 years old), cotton “Field & Stream” hunting shirt (Cambodia), cotton “Anvil” t-shirt (El Salvador), “Wrangler” jeans (Mexico), “Haynes” boxers (Costa Rica), “Merrell” trail shoes (Vietnam), “Haynes” cotton socks (Costa Rica again). Thus only one article of clothing I am wearing was produced in a developed nation.

          And where do you stand on the 1st Amendment? Do you have two standards? Free speech and ‘approved speech’?

          • JohnEngelman

            The First Amendment: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

            I want the First Amendment, and the United States Constitution in general to be literally and narrowly interpreted. If it does not clearly say something I think we should assume that it is silent on the subject. The First Amendment restricts the government. It does not restrict those who own internet websites.

          • That’s like saying that the Second Amendment really just protects the government’s right to arm the National Guard.

            Epic fail, Mr. Engelman.

          • JohnEngelman

            As far as I am concerned, that is all it protects. I want gun ownership to be treated the way automobile ownership is treated: as a privilege granted somewhat reluctantly by the government.

          • What you pretend to want is irrelevant in this respect. The United States Supreme Court has already ruled that the Second Amendment recognizes an individual right: a right, and not a privilege.

            The Second Amendment is intended to protect us from our own government. Governments in the 20th Century murdered more than 100 million of their own people.

          • JohnEngelman

            I do not care what the Supreme Court says about guns or anything else. I think courts have too much power in the United States.

            The idea that we need guns to protect ourselves from our own government is an argument that appeals to criminals and terrorists. People in Europe and the Far East do not think that way.

          • I confess to feeling a distaste for what characterizes lower income Southern whites. This includes country and western music, pickup trucks with Confederate flag decals and rifle racks, the gun culture, and hunting. I love hiking in the woods and wildlife. Someone who goes into the woods to kill animals is a different kind of person than I am.

            — Yellow John

          • I hunt because we eat. My wife and I fish because we eat. I got my last deer with a thrown fist-sized rock; he went down right away. It never heard me until it was too late. We ate all of it except the viscera, and boiled the bones for soup.

            Someone who thinks their pork comes from the supermarket instead of actual pigs who must be killed and butchered would doubtless not approve. Too bad.

        • Pro_Whitey

          Well, I see immigration doing so much damage to this country, and when I try to stop it, I am up against big money spent by the likes of Adelson and Zuckerberg. It’s especially galling because by all accounts Adelson is very much in favor of Israel’s immigration control and its border fence. That happens again and again on so many issues, like I understand that Charles Schumer, Mr. Pro Choice in the U.S., was honored by a pro-life organization in Israel that explicitly discourages abortions by Jews to keep their numbers up. After a while, the double standard, and the explicit and implicit threats of economic retaliation for sticking up for our interests, make us kind of bitter.

          • JohnEngelman

            When you try to stop immigration you are up against big money period. The employer – investor class benefits from a high rate of immigration because it enables them to raise profits by raising prices and cutting wages. The vast majority of those in the employer – investor class are white Gentile Republicans.

          • Pro_Whitey

            Well, them white gentiles must be pretty crafty to get guys like Adelson and Zuckerberg to front for them and take the heat on immigration.

            How are Jews the enemies of white Gentiles?

          • Zaporizhian Sich

            If I have to explain this to you, then you are clearly clueless.

          • JohnEngelman

            In other words you have no rational answers, only feelings of resentment for a superior race that you resent because they are superior. Antisemitism is a right wing form of the politics of envy.

          • AmRen’s stated position:

            What We Believe

            Race is an important aspect of individual and group identity. Of all the fault lines that divide society—language, religion, class, ideology—it is the most prominent and divisive. Race and racial conflict are at the heart of some of the most serious challenges the Western World faces in the 21st century.

            The problems of race cannot be solved without adequate understanding. Attempts to gloss over the significance of race or even to deny its reality only make problems worse. Progress requires the study of all aspects of race, whether historical, cultural, or biological. This approach is known as race realism.

            A concise summary of Yellow John’s view:

            What matters is not race. What matters is IQ.

          • JohnEngelman

            Jared Taylor acknowledges that Orientals and whites get along well. He would probably like to live in a country where everyone was white, and of European ancestry. I would not.

            At the same time I see no value in a significant population of blacks or Muslims.

            Jared Taylor and I agree that races differ significantly in average ability levels and behavior. We both oppose affirmative action and favor more restrictions on immigration.

          • You both breath oxygen and probably chew with your mouth closed. That still gets you no closer to being of the same kind of rationale. Your position is that race doesn’t matter. The exact opposite of a position that believes of all divisions and facets of society, race matters the most.

            Celestial Time: Oddly, though, an admitted multiculturalist and diversity junkie who degrades White women, has not even an inkling of racial preservation in his mantras and verbal repertoire, and incessantly opines about the glorious future of having Asians flood White countries with their “superior” abilities is left untouched on the site.

            Yellow John: *he he he*

          • JohnEngelman

            I believe that race matters, in that qualities I admire differ between the races. Nevertheless, I evaluate people by their own qualities, rather than by their race. I would rather spend my time with cultivated Negroes than with stupid, ignorant whites.

          • Telling big fat lies at this point only makes you look more pathetic than you already are.

            What matters is not race. What matters is IQ.

            There really isn’t a way to misconstrue that kind of statement.

          • JohnEngelman

            Now you’re really getting desperate. Race only matters in that it correlates with characteristics that make for successful societies. Perhaps the most important of these is IQ.

            If my comments are lacking in value you should be able to ignore them. My comments get under your skin because I say things you cannot easily dismiss.

          • Desperate would be an entity known as Yellow John who goes blank when asked direct questions.

            I’m still waiting for you to tell me about those facts that you posted about all women desiring the “superior” abilities of Asian men. Why did AmRen post an article that said the exact opposite?

            Everything you post is just a repetition of your incessant desire to try and get people to agree with your fetishes and views. I can easily dismiss any talk about “superiority,” because you’ve rarely ever seen me talk about something being superior. I don’t talk about things like that at anywhere near the level you do.

            You say Asian women are more feminine. I say they are more boylike than White women. How exactly do you prove they are more feminine?

          • JohnEngelman

            You say Asian women are more feminine. I say they are more boylike than White women. How exactly do you prove they are more feminine?

            – Celestial Time

            Oriental women have less testosterone than white women.

          • By your own reasoning we should refer to black men as more manly, and Asian men as borderline women or hermaphrodites? Which would really be odd considering your claim that all women desired Asian men for their “superior” abilities. You still haven’t answered that one. I guess what you were saying is that when it comes to women, men want Asian women because of some little difference in average testosterone(less is better?), but when it comes to men, women are more desiring of men with less testosterone(again, less is better?). Funny how your rationale has Asians coming out on top, even though they are two conflicting ideas. It’s almost like you went out of your way to give Asians the advantage in your little study.

    The elite’s utopian delusion of a New World Order is just about finished. The bleating of the ‘elite’ for a world plantation of ‘multicultural’, obedient serfs is being drowned out by the clanging of tribal, ethnic, and religious wars that continue across the globe. Their dream of global rule is impossible, and they will continue to write and broadcast their drivel in increasingly hysterical language as they face the futility of their efforts.


    I met a traveller from an antique land
    Who said: `Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
    Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
    Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
    And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
    Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
    Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
    The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed.
    And on the pedestal these words appear —
    “My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
    Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!”
    Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
    Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
    The lone and level sands stretch far away.’

    Why are posts deleted, who deletes those? Is it one person or a small committee of say, 3 people? I don’t think it’s good, but I understand that you can do what you want with your own website. Unless it’s offensive to whites I wouldn’t delete it.

    • JohnEngelman

      One of the things I admire about Jared Taylor is that he dislikes antisemetic rants.

      • AndrewInterrupted

        I agree with gemjunior.
        It’s a free speech issue. A council is a good idea, or a file that is accessible to see what was deleted. That’s transparency. Let’s not lower ourselves to Chicago tactics. [email protected] has a feature that obscures comments that receives many thumbs down, but you can still read the comment if you choose. That sounds more like the 1st Amendment in practice.

        • JohnEngelman

          Freedom of the press protects the freedom of the man who owns the press. Jared Taylor owns this website. He has the legal right, and I would argue the moral right, to exclude comments that he thinks damage the image and reputation of American Renaissance.

          Most who post here, unlike me, use pseudonyms. They can slander the Jews and get away with it. Jared Taylor will pay the price if that is allowed to continue.

      • Fak_Zakaix

        Taylor’s anti-semitism strikes me as subtle. Consider the widely quoted Taylor comment that, “Jews look White to me”. That’s pretty funny, particularly if you try to repeat it. I’m surprised he hasn’t said, and he probably has, “some of my best friends are Jews”. LOL.

        • JohnEngelman

          Unlike me Jared Taylor would like to live in a country where everyone was a white Gentile. Nevertheless, he recognizes the mental and moral superiority of Jews and Orientals.

    I find it morally dubious that Gideon Rachman is getting paid a Western salary to write articles like this. He ought to give up his job to a poor, disadvantaged Congolese man. It’s not fair that Rachman gets to live better than Third Worlders.

    Why don’t these people ever do as they command the rest of us to do?

    It would certainly be morally dubious to attempt to bolster western
    living standards by undermining an economic trend that has dragged
    hundreds of millions of people out of poverty in the developing world.

    Well, well, well now we know… those libtards can feel good about themselves as they starve to death in the dark, smug in their moral superiority as they drag us into the grave with them.

    We must never lose sight of the fact that most Whites have to work for a living , thus we should never take the side of corrupt wealthy elites who work to lower wages for our people (hear that Rand Paul Libertarian cult followers?).

    The Liberal Left is always bashing White Southerners and all White people for supposed terrible sins of slavery, slavery in the US South having ended over 150 years ago. When did slavery end in Mali Africa or Saudi Arabia?

    That’s a trick question, as the Muslims are back in to enslaving Black Africans this year 2014 – somehow these modern slavers get a pass from the Liberal Left.

    Here’s some other interesting news: wealthy Liberal Leftist elites have implemented programs of “voluntary servitude” (slavery) in the form of: unpaid internships (sometimes their slaves get ~ $2 an hour).

    Some of their slaves are complaining a bit, not enough to jump off the Liberal Left plantation, but these are not all “happy slaves”

    Our nation’s leaders are betraying their own people by surrendering the country to 3rd world trash, so why ever would anyone who’s reasonably informed still have faith for the future?

    Given the fundamental transformation of the West over the last few decades, it’d be foolish to attach much significance of any supposed changes in optimism.

    Assimilation: When you leave your country of origin and enter someone else’s country and adopt the founding culture (not the one in the ‘Overton window’) and you don’t impose yours (some language other than English, for one example). If that nderstanding doesn’t agree with you that makes you a multiculturalist. If multiculturalism (non-assimilation) is your intent, don’t put your right hand up and pledge allegiance to the red, white, and blue because that would make you a liar. Stay in your country—your culture. That’smy definition of assimilation.

    Protecting and promoting the founding American culture is only
    going to happen through secession. The Incrementalists have infested this country with too many (Gramscian) termites. As we speak, Eric Holder is stacking the DOJ with open borders, pro-amnesty lawyers (“Personnel is policy”). More termites “burrowing in” as J. Christian Adams put it.

    Chicago gangsters ‘don’t find the Constitution an obstacle’, to loosely quote Joe Sobran. In Chicago-America it’s only unethical, immoral, or against the law—if you get caught—and someone throws you in jail. The strategic motive always being: the most votes=the mob rules. Rahm the Bomb announced yesterday that he would be fasting for all those ‘Undocumented Democrats’. Another example would be the Pigford crime scene: American taxpayers paid $50K per Democrat vote for that one, as Obama and the DOJ applauded.What more evidence do we need that (Chicago) mob-rule is in place?

    Only a series of secessions will allow the white race to consolidate in order to protect and promote themselves the way La Raza, the
    NAACP, and the Jewish lobbies do (to name just a few multiculturalist entities). Saul Alinsky, Gramsci, and Marx would all be dancing in hell if the white race tried another state-from-union split. Obama and his fellow gangsters would be licking their blood thirsty chops if the founding culture tried that again. Texas is slowly figuring that out. The founding culture has to counter incrementally —fire with fire; turn the Cultural Marxist into ‘the boiling frog’.

    That incremental secession approach is already happening. Baton Rouge is resurrecting their city-from-city secession campaign. North Colorado and West Maryland are stepping up their state-from-state secession talks and petitions. Those are the small steps toward cultural freedom. But, it has to become a stampede before it can happen.

    That’s the only way now; too many termites.

    Free movement of labor leads toward prosperity for illegal immigrants and their employers. For me, not so much.

    Own the world’s resources to sell to the world market and you simply use up the resources all that much faster.
    This is a fantasy that cannot be sustained because someone mistakenly conflates ‘making room at the top’ (wealth class openings created by more distributionist capitalism which is _not_ ‘free’) with feeding the Tribble that is a global, sub-90 IQ. You have to be able to buy the services of an elite class to have a slave labor population or resources but you do not want to let them -ever- think they are equal to The West while they breed like locusts and have IQs in the in and WP->out only decreases inefficiency as energy conversion losses in the system.
    3. All systems are entropic. What starts out with positive efficiencies for scale becomes less and less efficient the more you over extend it as Energy (as resources) depletes. This is -without- trying to offer the world the same standards as we have.
    All’s the elites are doing is building the Candida Response whereby feeding the world a diet of Western like consumerism acts as a mass of bacterial gutworm that gets it fat and happy living on a Western Style economic condition but without the brains or the population control to sustain itself -except- as is supplied from outside.
    Where all profit is virtual (1s and 0s on some computer), when the resources run dry, there is no further purpose in alliance between the poor third world holders of those former resources and the rich centrist states.
    But there will be a huge yeasty mash population of those who don’t want to lose their ‘Western’ gifted economic largesse and a regional leadership class who can no longer control this body because the money means nothing without the resource wealth to give to someone in trade for weapons.
    Those envious and jealous populations will begin to move towards wherever they see residual wealth and the resultant ‘migratory phase’ social upheaval of the 14 billion likely to be on this planet by 2100 will make the slaughter of all the wars this planet has ever endured look like childhood squabbles in a sandbox.
    _Les Camps des Saints_ has /nothing/ on what is coming.
    Whites, who will be some 4% of the population at that time, will be the first to go extinct because we will be outnumbered 1,000s to 1, even in our homelands.
    It is for this reason that the entire idea of Capitalism is a blatant thermodynamic as socio-economic suicide.
    The real sadness is that we don’t need Third World dependence at all. With Automan + Robotics in a society that didn’t endlessly try to one up itself by screwing over the other guy, we could run the slave states into the dirt with process efficiencies (one stop: drill, refine, manufacture, package, distribute) that would leave us completely free of the ravening hordes’ lost cause conditioning.
    People need to remember something: Before Homo, the Hominids existed for the better part of 4 million years with 5-7 distinct subspecies. Not all were destined for greatness, some finished early, others hung on until the last, but all had a terrain isolate niche` environment where they could achieve their evolutionary maximum in peace.
    Much the same could and should apply today, without prejudice of “Awwwh, they aren’t just like us?” attached. Let The West _be_ the highwater point for Homo Sapiens and even the breeding ground for Homo Evolutis.
    But don’t throw it all away just to keep the rich getting richer supplying a false material culture to those who cannot sustain it and will breed like Candida if exposed to it.

  • Like Scotsmen: of course we’re revolting, but in which way at the current time?

    Look at the last names of the global “elite” and you will see why

    Truthseeker, which Eskimos are on our side?

  • me

    Okay, Negative Nancy. You just keep spewing your ‘statistics’, while the rest of us work on advocating for our people. The only time Whites have been defeated is when we fought against each other.

  • me

    Nope, because Whites are waking up to this massive fraud and criminal enterprise against them. The day of reckoning approaches quickly…

    Assimilation for the purpose of a holding action. The spirit of America has been violated. The arrivals since 1965 are making it clear that they have no desire to participate. They are nation-takers, not nation-makers. They are guests, not renters. They didn’t come to join us, they came to invade us–incrementally.

    Assimilation is what the Fins, Dutch, Canadians, Norwegians, Germans, Russians, Polish, Irish, Italians, French (to a lesser degree) did up until Hart-Celler 1965. Then it all unraveled.

    American-style Assimilation was the ‘understood’ verbal agreement, but that was breached. If that can’t be reversed, it’s time to let everyone violate assimilation–including the founding culture (us).

    Now it’s Orania time.

    Wrong, it leads to genocide and war. Free trade is globalism that benefits a tiny group of non-whites who have intense, irrational hatred of whites, Christianity and Western Civilization. These people also want to murder everyone on the planet except the last several hundred million, so they can rule the Earth like a global Gulag,
