What Went Wrong With the West, and What Can We Do?

At the beginningof the 21st century, the West is the sick man of the world. We provide our enemies with the technology and medicine to multiply, give them the transportation and legal rights to move to our countries (after we first showed them through TV and movies how much better life is in our part of the world). On top of this, we pay them to colonize our countries and harass our children, while our so-called leaders ban opposition to this as intolerance, discrimination and racism.
How did we go from being the most rational and dynamic civilization in human history to being the most irrational and pathetic? When did the West stop thinking? Where did we go wrong?
Here is the answer an American friend of mine gave:
Well, there’s Marxism of course, which was extremely damaging in all its forms. There were the two world wars which killed so many of our people and caused a lack of cultural confidence. Then there was the Pax Americana and the unprecedented safety and affluence it brought to the Western World. We have now had two generations of Westerners, almost three, who have never known real poverty, hunger, war, or “the knock on the door in the middle of the night.” Without a need for survival skills, we had the time and the money to focus on ever-more insane political and cultural ideologies. People didn’t worry about gay rights or “whiteness studies” in the middle of the Great Depression or the London Blitz! I think I remember reading something about how the Indian Hindu empires became ripe for conquest by Islam — “They focused on becoming good, instead of remaining powerful.” I can’t remember the source on that though. But that’s what we are now — obsessing about how to be good, not on being powerful. And our “goodness” isn’t worth much if the rest of the world is focused on becoming powerful.
Also, you have to remember, a lot of people are making money out of these insane ideologies. The “diversity” industry in the U.S. is worth billions — people with little skills or ability are being given comfy well-paid jobs because of it. And because of anti-discrimination laws, every organization, whether for profit or not, must have a “diversity” plan to point to if they ever get sued for “discrimination.” It’s literally a recession-proof captive industry. Anyways we’re sick and the whole world knows it. They are coming here to feed off our sickness. How sick is it? In the US if you are non-white, you can immigrate here and instantly be given all kinds of special privileges, scholarships and preferences over white Americans who have lived here for generations. (Or if you’ve got a Spanish name, you can get those same privileges and preferences even if you’re as white as King Juan Carlos of Spain!)

All you have to do is scream “racism” and your ticket is punched for life. My first ancestor arrived in the US in 1642 and I am descended from several Revolutionary War soldiers. But my blonde, blue-eyed daughter must step aside for the progeny of a Mexican illegal immigrant who deliberately got pregnant and gave birth here so she could access the schools, welfare state, and infrastructure that my ancestors fought, bled and died for. The word is out — get yourself into the West, scream “racism” and you’ve got it made. And the “racism” industry is happy because the more non-whites come here, the more business for them. That all of this is building up to a mass genocide of our people, no one seems to care, except for the Marxists, who of course eagerly look forward to it.
So, what can ordinary citizens do about this?
Well, first of all we need to reclaim pride in our own heritage, which has been systematically robbed from us in recent generations. We need to reclaim control over our borders, and must reject any organization, either the EU, the UN, various human rights NGOs or others who prevent us from doing this. And finally, we need to develop a new mental paradigm dedicated to our own survival. We first need to survive, and then hopefully regenerate.
We cannot fix the rest of the world’s problems and have no obligation to do so even if we wanted to.
