Following WW2, Europe’s leaders mistakenly decided Hitler & the Holocaust were the result of nationalism, so they erased their borders and made nationalism a thought crime. That Hitler was a one-off and the result of the Treaty of Versailles (another creation of the ever-failing leadership of the Continent) was not considered, though it was the actual provenance of Hitler and the Holocaust.
Because Europeans always had warred against one another and dominated all others (which is also why they and their American descendants invented the modern world), they figured if they destroyed the internal means and ideology of war, they’d live in peace forever.
Their mistake was in thinking the world external to Europe would feel the same. It didn’t and doesn’t.
That outside world now is inside Europe – and Europeans have neither the means nor the will nor the manpower to defend themselves.
So Europe is dying.
With fertility below the entire planet outside Japan, the only young people in Europe who can enter the workforce are foreigners. But because these foreigners are illiterate muslims, they can’t enter the workforce of any industrial or post-industrial country. They are and always will be unemployable and so parasites on domestic workers.
European immigrants rely on welfare taken from the workers. Without workers, there is no welfare. Without welfare, there is no sustenance. Without sustenance, there will be war.
Europe CAUSED this. Europe VOTED for this. Europe REJECTED fertility and their own workers. Which is why they’ve allowed in so many foreigners – it’s far easier to import a Paki to serve you a latte in the café by the canal than to raise and educate your own kids. (Leftists voters agree globally- there are zero political units in the West with even replacement fertility – no nations, no American States that vote Blue.)
As Europe enters its death throes it will become more and more violent, more jobs will disappear, more kids will not be born.
Europe is in a death spiral.
(We do hundreds of billions of dollars in trade with Europe, supporting millions of American jobs. If you think the disappearance of European workers will not be catastrophic for our economy, you’re just wrong.)
On Europe’s eastern borders is a nation with a leader who does not want his country killed. To think he will not enter Europe with the intent to crush those destroying Europe (and his markets and food sources) is absurd. Farther to the east of Europe is China, a nation modernizing itself on the purchases of Europeans and Americans. To think China will not address those collapsing its markets – and its jobs – also is absurd. (Laying out the case for China doing so is the plot of my geopolitical novel, China Rising. Is it fiction… still…?)
Given the idiocy and anti-civilization demands of at least half of American voters – and most of its stupidentsia – America likely will resist Russia’s and China’s efforts to save Europe (and their markets and food sources) from these foreign, illiterate, tribal savage invaders.
Rather than ally ourselves with a Russia and a China intent on defeating islamist totalitarianism and preserving liberty and freedom in the West, just as we allied with Stalin and Chou to defeat Hitler & Imperial Japan, we will make war on Russia and China, destroying tens of thousands of Western lives, and trillions of Western dollars.
And maybe the planet.
This is how stupid American and European leadership has become… and the voters who support them.
(Sequel: American Democrats also believe nationalism and borders to be thought crimes. On the borders of Blue States are Red States who will fight to defend Liberty, markets, jobs for their kids – that also are lacking in Blue States. The situation is identical to what is described above re: Europe’s death throes. As long as Red State workers willingly provide tax dollars to be spent on Blue State parasites on our workers, and our kids’ futures (remember – no Blue State is raising future workers; only Red States believe in the future enough to populate it), we will continue to circle the drain continually enlarged by Blue State voters and the ignorant in the center who have no idea what is going on. Guess what happens next?)
