For my money, you can’t paint a dark enough picture to fully capture the decadence and depravity in the current zeitgeist.
Political content is hollower than a supermarket Easter egg.
The desperate wish in Europe to at least appear morally correct is unfortunately over-matched by the desperation of people fleeing unstable, overpopulated places, and it is a fiasco beyond even the events of the moment.
Anyone who indulges in fantasies about organizing an orderly, rational distribution of displaced persons for the current wave, is badly missing the point. Wave beyond wave awaits after this one. And then what will the well-intentioned sentimentalists say? We wanted to do the right thing… we meant well… we cried when we saw the little boy dead on the beach….
So, the idea that the nations currently bethinking themselves “rich” can take in, shelter, and employ the fleeing masses is absurd. Somehow the people in charge, plus the intellectual classes who shape opinion and consensus, are going to have to arrive at some clear notion of limits and boundaries.
Soon all nations across Europe will be agonizing, shucking, jiving, or improvising some sort of desperate response.
Among other confusions of policy and intention, the public “debate” so far does not make any distinction between true political refugees fleeing for their lives or economic migrants seeking to improve their prospects elsewhere. It is surely easy to empathize with both categories of persons, but that doesn’t mean you give up the control of your borders just to make yourself feel better.
Mainstream madia spewing politico-sentimentality and other bullshittery deemed it indecent to call “illegal” immigrants what they are.
I reject the idea that it’s “racist” to want to preserve one’s national culture and character (especially in language), or to favour bona fide citizens for gainful employment.
Europe already has the problem of an immigrant Islamic population overtly hostile to European culture and tradition. Why is it morally imperative for us Europeans to countenance what amounts to low-grade warfare?
Sentimentalists will have to step aside. History is not a bedtime story about bunnies and kittens.
