Immigration in a Dying World

Robert Stacy McCain points out an interesting speech given by the Prime Minister of Hungary:

The situation, my dear friends, is: They want to take away our country! . . . They want us to hand it over willingly to others. To strangers from another continent, who do not speak our language, who do not respect our culture, our laws and our way of life. Who want to replace our way of life with theirs. From now on they do not want us and our descendants to live here, but someone else. . . .

There is no exaggeration in this! We can see it day by day, as great European peoples and nations, step by step, area by area, from city to city, lose their homeland. The situation is such that those who do not stop the migration at their borders will be lost. Slowly but surely they will be consumed. All of this by external forces, international powers that are trying to force it upon us, with the help of their local allies, and they see the upcoming election as a great opportunity for this.

Viktor Orban, the Prime Minister, has come under fire not just for his opposition to Muslim immigration but, also, because he does flirt around the edges of anti-Semitism. It is, perhaps, a great pity that Soros is of Jewish ancestry…because genuine anti-Semites (I don’t think Orban is such) do latch on to that fact and use it to feed their anti-Jewish conspiracy theories. Be better if Soros was cracker through and through, as far as that goes. But, he’s Jewish…and so we have to put up with neo-Nazi dimwits using that fact…and Progressives using the neo-Nazis as a an excuse to paint anyone who opposes Soros’ vision as being anti-Semitic (and we’ll leave aside the growing and rather nasty anti-Semitism rising on the left these days).

I don’t believe that the elites of our civilization planned things to come out this way, but I do believe that they are pleased with how it has come out. After all, those Germans and French and British were so, so tiresome! All their noisy patriotism and insistence upon being, well, German, French and British! Simply deplorable! Much better if they simply shift into the hereafter and allow the Ruling Class to Rule without having to trouble with them.

But the bottom line is that Europe’s population is dying off and it is being replaced by immigrants. They are largely Muslim immigrants simply because of proximity – the Muslims are closer to Europe than anyone else who might want to live in an increasingly roomy Europe. But the real problem isn’t that the elites are allowing immigration but that the immigration has become possible due to Europe’s sterility. Orban makes a strong case, but I don’t see him hitting at the problem: Hungarians aren’t having kids.

Hungary’s population peaked at 10.7 million in 1980 – it is now about 9.8 million. A nine hundred thousand person decrease in less than forty years; and it happened without war, famine or plague. It was just that Hungarians stopped having kids. In 2017, the population suffered at net decrease of about 40,000. 9.4 people were born per 1,000 while 13.5 per 1,000 were dying. If you want to do the math, you can probably figure out to within a decade or two when the last Hungarian will die, if trends continue. If Orban wants Hungarians to be living in Hungary in the future, his task is to convince his people to start having children. No point, really, in keeping the Muslims out when a day will come when there’s no one there to stop them from coming in.

And so it goes not just around Europe, but around the world. Most of the countries of the world which still have a fertility rate above replacement (ie, higher than 2.1 children per woman) are in Africa, and even there birth rates are dropping very rapidly. And that, I think, was deliberately planned. Remember? The “population explosion”? How we were going to breed ourselves into utter destruction? Well, we sure as heck stopped that! We birth controlled and aborted ourselves into a situation where we’re not having enough kids and for ever more countries, the number of people dying is starting to exceed those being born. Europe did it so well that the Ruling Class, desperate for someone to pick up the tax burden of the Welfare State, started to import any warm bodies they could find…as if people plucked willy-nilly from a totally different society could actually fit into the welfare-soaked, pagan carnival that is Europe! But, the Ruling Class doesn’t mind that problem…they, personally, are well-guarded and as long as it doesn’t cost them political power or wealth in the short run, they simply don’t give a damn if their actual nations die.

What is amazing to me is how everyone welcomed this – people might have vigorously rejected this, that or the other thing of the Progressive ideology, but no one seems to have rejected the idea of sterility. Everyone wants to get in on that gig of not having kids, or at least not having enough of them to matter. I’m guilty, too! I have no kids. Of my parent’s six kids, there have been six children born. Only fifty percent of what we needed to produce just to break even! And we’re Catholics! You think Muslim nations didn’t buy this idea? They did. Their fertility rate is cratering…with Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Iran already breeding below the replacement rate and the rest of the Muslim world racing to catch up.

Ultimately, I think modern immigration is happening for the same reason it happened towards the end of the Roman Empire – the outsiders saw the great wealth and social stability of the Roman world and wanted to be part of it…and as the Romans were dying off for lack of children, might as well move in, right? But at least those barbarians were fertile! We’re being replaced by people who are only slightly less sterile than we are, and who are eagerly trying to become as sterile as we.

You know what is going to happen? The Haredi are going to happen. These ultra-orthodox Jews are going to make the running because they are the people bothering to have kids. They have 6.2 children per woman – and while their numbers are small, they will be the people sticking around for the future. I think this sort of thing will be duplicated in small groups…Christians, Muslims, what have you…but they’ll be groups of people who decide to get off the culture of death cycle and start having kids. They’ll pick up whatever pieces we leave behind…and I do wonder what sort of world it will be like? It won’t be like this one, that is for sure…

    It’s not hard to imagine some ugly times ahead. With any luck I’ll be gone, but I do wonder what kind of life my descendants will have.

      It’s a good thing you don’t believe in reincarnation! Imagine your perspective if you were working to create a world you’d be happy to come back to.

    I think the answer is a political one. Stop the Left and its relentless propagandizing against God and the role of the family, put more control back into the hands of individuals sot they are more comfortable with how their children will be educated and with confidence that the government will not be trying to take over the role of parents, and possibly more people will want to have more children.

    I also think it possible that as single children grow up and marry, they will want more children as they compare their childhoods with those who grew up with siblings.

    On the other hand, being the sole reason for existence for two doting parents, and the center of their universe, does not form a good foundation for marriage.

    Who needs children? The Government has promised to take care of everything via welfare payments when we get old, so building a family to support us just costs money and time!

    Time that women can better spend enjoying their youth and beauty and pursuing careers! Time that men can enjoy shagging those women! There will always be someone else to produce the future taxpayers who will happily pay to keep the system chugging along….

      Got into a little discussion with a lib about the sexual revolution today on Twitter – didn’t get around to saying this, but it occurred to me that the sexual revolution was a 40 year old man suckering a 20 year old woman into having sex…and when that turned out to be a disappointment for her, she became a blue haired feminist shouting that all men are lousy.

    So a school shooting took place this morning, but an armed student resource officer neutralized the threat before too many people were injured. You won’t hear about this in the progressive media.

    Any ideas on how that piece of paper with strong language intended to prevent shootings like this is coming along in Congress?

      I think they’re working out the signage—–the circle with a gun, with a slash through it, or words saying “no guns allowed”.

      The outline of a gun is, after all, a microaggression and likely to create hysteria and complete emotional breakdowns, but the words in English are nativist and therefore racist. The real question is how large the signs must be to accommodate every language known. In some cultures, “no” or any other negative is rude, so there is the problem of how to say “no guns” without saying “no guns”. “Gun-free zone” can imply that here, guns are free, when run through some language translations. The word “gun” is also a microaggression, but “No arms allowed” is a microaggression toward the amputation community.

      It’s hard to be a Lib.

        It’s hard for us to imagine what it must be like to be a Lib. Actually BEING a Lib is easy: results are not important; since most of their schemes are paid for with OPM, actually having money is not important; just announcing that they care is enough for most Libs to feel really good about themselves; and even failure is not really failure if they tried. And even if they didn’t really try, they can say they did, and most will not question it.

      • Amazona March 20, 2018 / 11:47 pm

        So much of what some Libs do snaps back and hits them in the face because it steps on other Lib toes—that’s what happens when your entire “political” movement depends on being insulted and outraged. Now we have all these different Lib movements bumping into each other and creating new problems and issues and it’s pretty funny to watch. The Women’s March and its p***y hats was offensive to other Libs because “not all women have vaginas”, and so on.

      Some Prog pointed out that the kids in that school had participated in the walkout the other day…and someone a little wiser noted that this kinda demonstrates that walkouts don’t really solve anything.
