It’s In Our Genes… And They Know It

It’s In Our Genes… And They Know It

whiteVirginia Dare was the very first English baby born in what would become the United States of America. She was born into ‘The Lost Colony’ in August 1587 off the coast of Northern Carolina.

Imagine the guts and determination it took, for a pregnant women to sail across the Atlantic, and then give birth to a healthy baby, especially in this late medieval period. The pregnant women who gave birth to the baby Virginia, was none other than the colony’s governor’s wife, Elenor.

No one really knows what happened to the settlers, as nothing was ever found of them again. The Governor, John White, found only brush fires caused by the heat, on his return from a trip back to England, which in itself was delayed by the Spanish Armada.

Now to those who have read into more than just the first paragraph as it were, you’ll see three broader things of note regarding our ethnic group here.

One: Absolute determination in life to produce something from nothing, and a natural bent towards adventure and creativity.

Two: Fellow Europeans (Spain and England) in this case, fighting pathetic wars that do no good for the ordinary people of each nation.

Three: The disappearance of a whole group. All three of these broader topics of note, are repeating themselves over and over again, and what is shameful and terrible about this, is that creativity, invention, and determination to succeed no matter what the odds, are innate for our people, and are matched with a downside. We simply cannot help our genes.. and that is what scares and delights our enemies so much in equal measure.

Politically, and in many cases, in business, we seem to have another darker, more irresponsible side to this prodigious natural resource, and what makes us, sometimes destroys us. We must continue on the road to our renaissance, and we must keep in mind that, although we have much to be proud of, our enemies know we have these two sides.

The renaissance of the European peoples will not be accomplished by political means alone, but we do have it within our grasp, and we must cherish it, and produce a more tribal and stable way of maintaining the only vehicle we have. On the other side of the same coin, continued cultural and socio-economic stimulus must always be an equal partner in our eventual recovery. Our people, especially the younger ones, need to be reminded that we have a highly sharpened natural ability to be intellectually superior to those who now rule over us.

We have a much derided past, a past which no other ethnic group can ever match, whereby not only did our women play a massive role in our culture, but we created all the things that are now taken for granted by other nations.

Our European brothers and sisters, and us here Britain, were not only inventive, but innovative and entrepreneurial. Without our business acumen, there would be no great tea business, as much of this was only possible through the British East India Company.

The same applies to Curry. Believe it or not, it was invented by British soldiers who having had many similar dished in Britain, in the form of stews and soups etc, made the most of the Indian produce available, including spices etc, and thus, the world renowned ”curry” was born.

Without going too far back, or getting into complicated and detailed history, here are others we should be grateful to in various fields, so rather than go into yet another boring ”look what we have done” routine, let us be reminded that whether political, cultural, or socio-economically, our renaissance must be gifted to the next generation, by us in this one, being more able to get it together, and put aside problems that in the wider scheme of things, are neither insurmountable, nor worth losing our nation, and broader ethnic heritage for.

Nikola Tesla – the man responsible for AC power and wireless energy.
Joseph Swan – Incandescent Light Bulb.
Yury Lomonosov – Produced the first successful mainline diesel locomotive.
Nicolas Florine – Rotor helicopter.
Emil Adolf von Behring – Discovered Diphtheria antitoxin.
Gotlieb Von-Daimler – the first high speed petrol engine and four wheel motor engine.
Grimm brothers – stories and linguistics pioneers.
Otto Hahn – Split the atom.
Socrates – Philosophy.
Plato – Philospohy.
Aristotle – Philosophy.
Julius Ceasar – the first ever public newspaper.
Charles Dickens – Writer.
Jules Verne – Writer.
Longfellow (Wordsworth) writer, poet.
Leonardo Da Vinci – Achitect, inventor, philosopher.
Shakespeare – Poet, writer, humourist.
Christopher Wren – architect, scientist.
Robert Adam – architect.
Capability Brown – landscapes.

So there, just a bite sized view of our past greats. The enemy of the western people knows full well that, with all what we have accomplished, we still somehow fall, as empires of the past have shown.

Are we able to enjoy a future renaissance, or are we doomed to make the same mistakes as our forebears?

There are thousands of unchallenged people out there, including people who are exactly the same as Plato, Charles Dickens, Von Behring, and Leonardo Da Vinci, who may never get the chance to show their worth to an increasingly  terrifying world.

Where are the future Robert Adams? What can we do to enhance our future? The answer lies in our gene pool, but it also lies in our ability to learn from history.

Now, can we get on with the political landscape we all want please? Anything else will see our genes dissolved into dust.

 

The Future and the United States

The Future and the United States

By Steve McCann

As the opening decade of the twenty-first century draws to a close, what is the future of the United States in an increasingly complex and fluid world order?

 

In a prospective global scenario in which China dominates and reshapes Asia, India becomes a major economic power and extends its influence into Africa, Islam continues to spread its brand of social dominion, and Europe has become a loose confederation of states trying to maintain some semblance of importance, what role will the United States play?

 

It has become conventional wisdom that over the next 25 to thirty years, the United States will continue to experience a precipitous decline, and that China will become the dominant power in the world alongside the massive growth of countries such as India and Brazil.  In short, according to the doom-and-gloom crowd, the days of U.S. world influence may well be over.

 

This assumes the global scenario of the past few centuries when just one part of the world dominated international affairs.  That has been Europe (and by extension, the United States).  Globalization combined with foolhardy economic and social policies has diffused power away from the West.  But that power is moving to countries that have within their societies many built-in factors that will limit their ability to achieve global hegemonic power.

 

In the case of both China and India, their overwhelming populations and the increasing demands by the people for a piece of the expanding economic pie will force these countries to focus more on internal matters or risk societal upheaval.  China, for example, if foolish enough to physically conquer other lands, will only add to its unsustainable internal burden.  China can therefore be expected to rely instead on economic supremacy within its own sphere of influence.

 

Those nations dominated by Islamic fundamentalism will not experience growth, as the nature of their vision of Islam will prevent the expansion of capitalism.  In order to keep their populations at bay, brutality will be the order of the day.  Their major source of income, the exploitation of natural resources (mainly oil), can be replaced as other nations, such as the United States, tap into their own vast reserves of petroleum-related resources.

 

Europe will continue its decline, with Russia clinging desperately to past days of glory as a world superpower.  However, with the negative birthrates throughout the continent and the widespread fealty to social democracy, Europe’s influence will wane as the years go by, and within forty years, it will resemble the European city-states of the Middle Ages — but still a major consumer and economic arena.

 

Thus, the world that will arise from these factors is not one of domination by one country or region, but one that contains numerous centers of power.

 

As these centers of power mature, they will take care of security and military matters within their domain.  As long as nuclear weapons exist and these nations have them, the old Cold War theory of mutually assured destruction will act as a deterrent against global war.  Within their orbit, these nations will have greater incentive to constrain the rogue states and dictators from obtaining weapons of mass destruction, as they will not want to risk conflagration and destroy their power base.  Thus, the United States will not be alone in maintaining peace and acting as the world’s policeman.

 

Beyond just military or security issues, the United States will be even more vital in this new world order.

 

These new centers of power will require a clearinghouse or arbitrator that has its foot in the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian Ocean spheres of influence.  Only the United States is in this position — due not only to factors of geography, but also to the melting-pot influence of the population and the sheer size of its economy.

 

However, it is incumbent on the United States to get its house in order.  Fiscal and monetary policy must recognize the reality of current financial mismanagement.  The current ruling class and its Euro-socialist mindset must be replaced with those who are willing to deal with these matters honestly and lead the American people with honor and integrity.  The first (albeit embryonic) steps were taken in the midterm election of 2010, but much more needs to be done and equitable sacrifices made by all segments of society.

 

Further, the country must focus on becoming the foremost haven for business in the world and revamp its foreign policy that is still based on the twentieth-century model of superpower confrontation.

 

The matter that could throw the remainder of this century into worldwide chaos and the United States into anarchy is not the emergence of other nations, but the collapse of the United States.  That overall possibility rests solely in the hands of the American people.

There is no need to fear the future.  The American century can continue, and the United States can become an even greater influence on world events.  The factors are there.

Tribalism Returns to Europe

 

Tribalism Returns to Europe

By Patrick J. Buchanan

Is Europe’s adventure in international living about to end?

At Potsdam, Germany, this weekend, Chancellor Angela Merkel told the young conservatives of her Christian Democratic Union that Germany’s attempt to create a multicultural society where people “live side by side and enjoy each other” has “failed, utterly failed.”

Backing up her rueful admission are surveys showing 30 percent of Germans believe the country is overrun by foreigners. An equal number believe the foreigners come to feed off German welfare.

Merkel had in mind the Turks who came as gastarbeiters, guest workers, in the 1960s. Some 2.5 million now live in Germany.

Arabs and East Europeans have come more recently. One survey puts the Muslim population at 5 million.

“Multikulti is dead,” says Horst Seehofer of Merkel’s sister party, the Christian Social Union of Bavaria. He wants no more immigration from “alien cultures.” Turks and other Muslims are not learning the language, he contends, not assimilating, not becoming Germans.

Awareness of deep differences with Turkish neighbors became acute for Germans when, grieving in solidarity with America after 9/11, they learned that Turkish sectors of Berlin were celebrating Islam’s victory with barrages of bottle rockets.

Like all of Europe, Germany grows nervous.

This summer, Thilo Sarrazin, who sat on the Bundesbank board, published “Germany Abolishes Itself,” which sold 300,000 copies in seven weeks. Sarrazin argued that Germany’s Muslim population is intellectually inferior and unable or unwilling to learn the language or culture, and mass immigration is destroying the nation.

No rightist, but a stalwart of the socialist party, Sarrazin was forced out at the Bundesbank. Half his socialist party stood by him.

Across Europe, there is a resurgence of ethnonationalism that is feeding the ranks of populist and anti-immigrant parties that are gaining respectability and reaching for power.

Austrian nationalists triumphed in 2008 when the Freedom Party of Joerg Haider and the Alliance for the Future of Austria together took 29 percent of the vote. The Swiss People’s Party of Christoph Blocher, largest in Bern, was behind the successful referendum to change the constitution to outlaw minarets and prohibit the wearing of burqas.

Hungary’s Jobbik Party, which to the Financial Times “sits squarely in Europe’s most repulsive arch-nationalist tradition and which blames Jews and Roma for the hardships of other Hungarians,” pulled 17 percent of the vote this year and entered parliament with 47 seats, up from zero seats in 2006.

The Sweden Democrats just captured 6 percent of the vote and entered parliament for the first time with 20 seats, joining right-wing folk parties in Norway and Denmark.

Geert Wilders, a rising figure in Dutch politics, was charged with hate speech for equating Islam and Nazism. In June, his Freedom Party swept past the ruling Christian Democrats, who lost half of their strength in parliament. “More security, less crime, less immigration, less Islam—that is what the Netherlands has chosen,” said Wilders.

In France, President Nicolas Sarkozy—one eye on Jean-Marie Le Pen’s National Front, the other on the 2012 elections—rejecting cries of “Nazism” and “Vichyism,” is dismantling Gypsy camps and deporting Gypsies to Romania. Milan is now following the French lead.

What is happening in Europe partakes of a global trend. Multiracial, multi-ethnic, multicultural nations are disintegrating.

Russians battle ethnic Muslim separatists in the North Caucasus. Seventy percent of Americans support an Arizona law to identify and expel illegal aliens. Beijing swamps the homelands of Tibetans and Uighurs with Han Chinese. India fights secession in Kashmir, Nagaland and the Naxalite provinces.

“Wars between nations have given way to wars within nations, “ said Barack Obama in his Nobel Prize address.

Ethnonationalism tore Mikhail Gorbachev’s Soviet Union and Josip Tito’s Yugoslavia into 22 separate nations, and is now tugging at the seams of all multi-ethnic states. Globalism is in retreat before tribalism.

But the awakening of Europe’s establishment to the shallow roots of multiculturalism will likely prove frustrating and futile.

With her fertility rate below replacement levels for 40 years, projected to remain so for the next 40 years, Germany will lose 12 million of her 82 million people by 2050. Her median age will rise eight years to 53, and 40 percent of all Germans will be over 60.

Germany’s problem is insoluble. She is running out of Germans.

Yet if her welfare state is to survive and her industries are to remain competitive, Germany will need millions of new workers.

Where are they to come from, if not the Third World? For not one European nation, save Iceland and Albania, has had a birth rate for decades that is not below zero population growth.

Baby boomer Europe decided in the 1960s and 1970s it wanted La Dolce Vita, not the hassle of children. It had that sweet life. Now the bill comes due. And the bill is the end of their tribes and countries as we have known them.

Old Europe is dying, and the populist and nationalist parties, in the poet’s phrase, are simply raging “against the dying of the light.”

 

Europe’s Revolt of the Pampered

By Patrick J. Buchanan

For the fourth day running, France has been crippled by strikes. Airlines are canceling flights. Travelers making their way to Paris from DeGaulle and Orly face long delays.

Tourists are stranded. The Eiffel Tower was closed. Rail and subway traffic into the city has been curtailed. By shutting down refineries, French oil workers may cause a shutdown of gas stations and force the government to raid the strategic petroleum reserve.

Millions have gone on strike. One in 10 high schools has been closed. Students at secondary schools and universities march beside workers and block entrances to paralyze the educational system.

And what is the cause of this national tantrum?

President Nicolas Sarkozy has moved through the National Assembly and is pushing through the Senate a measure raising the retirement age for state pensions from 60 to 62.

For if France does not raise that retirement age, its social security system will face a $58 billion deficit by 2018. Sarkozy’s reform follows his victory in repealing a decade-old Socialist law that mandated the 35-hour workweek in France.

What world, one wonders, are these French living in?

Around 2050, those high school and college students will be near or above today’s retirement age of 60. Who do they think is going to pony up for their pensions? Are they not aware of what is coming for France and Europe?

Today, 23 percent of French men and women are 60 or older. That will rise to 33 percent by 2050, when there will be one French worker for each French retiree, if 60 is retained as the age of retirement.

Today, 5.5 percent of French men and women are 80 or older. By 2050, that doubles to 11 percent.

Who do the French strikers think is going to pay the taxes for the medical expenses of this infirm and aged ninth of a nation?

Where the median age of the French is 40, in 2050 it will be 45. But that number disguises a far drearier reality.

Since 1970, the fertility rate of French women has been below the 2.1 children needed to sustain France’s population, what demographers call zero population growth. For the next four decades until 2050, the fertility level of French women is projected to remain roughly 15 percent below ZPG.

Yet France’s population of 62.6 million is projected to make a healthy leap to 67.7 million. How can a population continue to grow when the birth rate for almost 80 years running to 2050 is below replacement level?

Answer: As the French retire, age and die, France is filling up with immigrants coming to replace the departed and departing French, and the millions of French children who were never born because their potential parents did not want them.

Where are the immigrants coming from?

Some come from Eastern Europe. But more are arriving from Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia and the former French colonies of the sub-Sahara. Arabs and Africans are populating cities like Marseilles and Grenoble, and filling up the burgeoning banlieues around Paris, where every few years, they go on a tear and burn thousands of cars. For Paris police, the banlieues are off-limits, except when traveling in platoons.

These immigrants do not bring the occupational skills, education or language abilities of French youth. Most will not earn the wages and salaries of native-born French, and thus not contribute the same level of taxes to sustain a welfare state constructed by a Socialist Party that has ruled France on and off for decades.

With the end of the 35-hour workweek and retirement at 60, the peeling back of social welfare benefits granted to the French in the salad days of socialism has only just begun. They can march and protest and strike, but they cannot avert the inevitable.

What is true of France is true of Europe, where not one nation has a fertility rate that will replace its native-born. Among Russians, Ukrainians, Estonians, Lithuanians and Latvians, the death rate already exceeds the birth rate. These countries have begun to pass away. And their neighbors will follow.

With the financial crisis of 2008-09, followed by the threatened debt default of one or more of the European Union PIGS (Portugal, Ireland, Greece, Spain), all of Europe also seems to be slashing defense budgets to save all they can of their welfare states.

Which raises questions we debt-swamped Americans cannot put off forever. Why, 65 years after World War II, are we still defending these nations? When Europe has more wealth, more people and a more lavish welfare state than we do, why should we impose sacrifices on our people to pay for the privilege of defending her people?

Instead of borrowing from Europe to defend Europe, why do we not charge them for providing that protection? If we are going to play Romans, why not demand tribute, as the Romans did?

America is the first empire in history to pay tribute to its satraps.
