Our Spanish correspondent Hermes returns with an essay on the foreclosure by the Western power elites of any alternative to the disastrous collapse of the ideological and political Multicultural regime that they have worked so long to build.
No Turning Point
Europe is changing. Much of what once was, will never be again. Events that fifteen years ago people would have considered unthinkable are becoming an everyday reality in the streets of Paris, London or Stockholm. And things that now — in spite of what is currently unfolding — seem unthinkable, are likely to become reality, no matter how painful or dreadful those may still seem.
Men are hardly capable of foreseeing the future, perhaps not out of ignorance or lack of knowledge of what is in happening in that given space and at that given time, but out of ideological and subjective considerations regarding their own selves and events taking place in that given space and time.
In the words of Enoch Powell, who may have been one of the few in history who, when needed, had the level of ideological detachment and objective vision of history-to-come needed to prevent future social collapses and chaos:
The supreme function of statesmanship is to provide against preventable evils. In seeking to do so, it encounters obstacles which are deeply rooted in human nature.
One is that by the very order of things such evils are not demonstrable until they have occurred: at each stage in their onset there is room for doubt and for dispute whether they be real or imaginary. By the same token, they attract little attention in comparison with current troubles, which are both indisputable and pressing: whence the besetting temptation of all politics to concern itself with the immediate present at the expense of the future.
So following the chain of events that has recently taken place, the Prime Ministers of England and Sweden were by definition charged by their respective people with the function of providing against such preventable horrors as the decapitation of a British soldier in broad daylight in a street of London, or such preventable actions as the massive destruction of public and private property in Stockholm.
But how is it even possible that these events still took place? How were these awful events, which may be perfectly seen as dreadful omens for the future, possible at all?
In looking for the underlying reasons for the seemingly irresponsible and short-sighted behavior by part of politicians, one may be compelled to take into account those elements in human behavior which predetermine the deeds of statesmen. Desire for power and the will to keep it are most likely to be the personal goals, and because of this, the top elements influencing the psyche of these kinds of people. The ruling political and ideological current is also worth taking into consideration, since this has influence on the broader acceptance of a leader in society. This means that for a leader to be acknowledged and accepted by a majority of people, this leader must not only follow, but be the embodiment of the mainstream ideological current present among the population. And by willingly taking on and professing that given ideological current, the leader and those standing around automatically lose the sight of one of their eyes, metaphorically speaking. Or better said, they willingly renounce it.
And we unavoidably arrive at the issue of political correctness and the illogical left-liberal notion of racism which pervades the entire Western society. The MSM are always busy labelling such things as bacon being sent to an Imam or chopped swine heads being thrown at the door of mosques as “racist attack” against that religion called Islam. But such appalling and treacherous acts as cooking a Christ are never deemed as a racist attack against the religion called Christianity. So interestingly enough, burning a Quran is declared to be a crime against humanity and a sign of the resurgence of “fascism”, but roasting Jesus or publicly burning a crucifix hardly attracts any attention by any part of the MSM.
Racism exists. Discriminating against people on grounds of their skin color or race is racism indeed, regardless whether the person who is the subject of discrimination is black, white or of another color. But (as left-liberals express themselves) “attacking” Islam is not “racism”, for if it were, then attacking Christianity should also be called “racism”. For it is a religion, too.
So following the left-liberal “logic” regarding this word, Islam must automatically be deemed the most racist ideology on the face of the earth, since Islam has been fighting and destroying all religions and cultures for over 1400 years. It is precisely the left-liberals who with their liberal and arbitrary usage of the word “racist” turn Islam into the embodiment of racism.
According to Aje Carlbom, a Swedish academic and author of a critical study on Swedish immigration policy, “Anyone who wants to regulate immigration is immediately classified as a nationalist, which also implies a racist as well.” He says, “It is still almost impossible to debate this question.”
It is almost impossible to debate this question because debating it would also mean debating a way of thinking which has been leading the way for the entire West since the end of WW2. For what happened during the darkest years of European history had left an effect so profound in the collective mind of the West that it has affected it beyond rationality and basic common sense, shaking and overturning the most basic tenets of the European identity and Western Civilization. The diabolical tenets of the ideology which arose during that period did not cease to poison Western Civilization with the end of WW2. Those principles mutated into a new, seemingly antithetical (“antiracism”) ideological monster which has been since then steadily destroying Western Civilization. And this monster has been successfully used by the left-liberal elites in order to grab the power and sweep away any trace of counterweight to the almighty ruling power. That is, any trace of free speech and democracy.
It is true that “The days when these ruling elites could claim that they ‘didn’t know’ the effects of their policies are now long gone”, but the point here is that they do not want to acknowledge that the effects of their policies are evil and lead to the irreversible destruction of Western Culture and Civilization. Neither want to nor can, because this would mean the very end of what they have been striving for decades. This would mean the willingly acceptance by part of them of the downfall of the ideology which has been for decades dictating what is right and what is wrong for Westerners. An entire transnational ideological empire is grounded on this ideology and way of seeing the world. And the ruling elites will not voluntarily acknowledge that what they have been preaching, professing and enforcing on the Western peoples is nothing but a utopian fantasy lacking every trace of sanity, yet earth-shattering events will usher in the end of this ideological leviathan. For this cannot be stopped now in a rational and civilized way. The inertial energy of it is now far too powerful, and the elites are irrevocably trapped in their own ideological grip. It is like a little snowball which was set in motion decades ago. And the tiny and harmless snowball has now turned into what one may by now expect. And no one (except for those like Enoch Powell) dared nor bothered worrying about what it might turn into.
This is likely to be the reason why Mr. Cameron said that the deadly attack on serviceman Lee Rigby was a “Betrayal of Islam”. He cared more about Islam itself, that is, in a broader sense about safekeeping the ruling transnational ideological empire upon which the power of the ruling left-liberal elites is grounded, and also assuring the future voter base which will eventually grant them another term in power, than about the brutal murder of an unarmed member of the British army. This could rightly be understood as high treason against the British armed forces.
In the words of Paul Weston:
Left-liberals have committed treason and continue to commit treason on an ongoing basis. They are not held to account because the government and the police are also committing treason, and the head of the government is David Cameron, a man who describes himself as a Conservative but who is, in reality, just another left-liberal traitor.
Kjell Lindgren, the spokesman for Stockholm Police declared that: “We don’t know why they are doing this, there is no answer to it”. These people are incapable of finding an answer to this because the situation itself does not fit with their notions of “openness” and “tolerance”, those notions which have been inoculated into Western populations from the very beginning. They “naïvely” (let’s express ourselves as mildly as possible) extrapolate themselves into the other cultures they allow in, taking for granted that immigrants will give up their own ways of seeing the world and resolving conflicts, and willingly adopt the ways of behaving of the host culture. Besides, westerners have been taught that “all cultures are equal”, so by definition, all members of all cultures are likely to behave the same way.
How fatal an indoctrination…
People who profess Multiculturalism, “antiracism” and the idea that more immigrants are needed cannot exclude a certain religion or culture out of the whole mass, because this would cast serious doubts on Multiculturalism itself, thus giving rise to a precedent case of the exclusion of a given culture or religion, and also because this would take away from them the unbeatable advantage they have over their political opponents, whom they can only shun and sweep away by calling them what they usually do — racist, fascist, etc…
Thus, the British PM’s reaction was a fairly predictable and “logical” one. By trying to whitewash Islam, he and others are also trying desperately to safeguard their positions and ideological guidelines. They are well aware of the effects of their policies, but they will never ever acknowledge that truth of the inherent danger posed by Islam. They will never acknowledge that a given culture from the unholy multicultural melting pot is provably lethal to any other society or culture. Those people will never ever acknowledge the truth which is admitted even by ex-Muslims themselves. Perhaps they are even well aware that people have knowledge of their lies, but this fact does not matter to them. Neither were communist leaders bothered that people knew the truth, although they were well aware that many many people were secretly listening to the Radio Free Europe. They were well aware of this because they were busy intercepting the radio transmissions and running expensive technical facilities with the aim of distorting the broadcasts of the radio as much as possible, especially when political magazines were aired.
But the most notable about the multicultural policies of the ruling left-liberal elites which are being successfully exploited by Islam in order to infiltrate the West is that both David Cameron and Fredrik Reinfeldt need to pursue them if they want to survive politically. They simply cannot avoid the factor of immigration and the potential weight it may have in future presidential elections. Sweden alone in 2006 accepted almost as many asylum applications from Iraqis as all other European countries did combined. Native Swedes, who live in a country which was one of the most ethnically homogeneous nations in the world only thirty years ago, may well turn into a minority in their own country within a few decades, so that it shall be the immigrant vote which will truly count. And it was thanks to the Muslim votes that François Hollande won the French presidential election a year ago.
So no politician belonging to the elites seems to care much about a French soldier being stabbed in the neck, public and private property being massively destroyed, or a British one being beheaded in broad daylight in a street in London, so long as they can keep the power for themselves. And the only way for them to achieve this will be increasingly to rely on the votes of the ever-growing immigrant population. We have reached a stage in which people simply do not count, no matter who they are, or where they come from. The elites do not care about people in general, let alone the native population to which they belong. They do not care about truths and lies as long as they can keep the power in their hands, if not by deception or persuasion, then by force. This is the only issue which matters to them.
Of Britain it was written in 2008 that:
My bet is still on Britain, or possibly Denmark, as the first Western country to face a civil war due to mass immigration, but the Netherlands is a potential candidate as well. I just wonder whether the Dutch are already a broken nation.
Every single day we get more evidence that the authorities are totally incapable of protecting any semblance of security and freedom for its citizens. The only thing the state still seems to be capable of doing is indoctrinating our children with hatred of their own civilization and taking away our money so that it can be given to those who colonize our countries and abuse our children, verbally and physically.
And on Sweden, also in 2008, that:
Sweden has been known as a “model country” with an economic system as a third way between capitalism and Socialism, or enlightened Socialism as it has been called. In 2008, the “Swedish model” no longer refers to an economic success story (and the Swedish economy grew rapidly before the welfare state was established), but to a horror story of cultural suicide, Gramscian cultural Marxism, ideological censorship and repression of dissent. Sweden is not unique. Similar trends are evident all over the Western world. But Political Correctness is unusual in its severity here, in part because Sweden already viewed itself as an “ideological state,” and the country is definitely ahead of the curve in ideological repression.
As for Britain, a few days ago a former MI6 chief openly admitted that the security forces are virtually powerless to stop atrocities like the Woolwich murder:
“I think it is incredibly hard to stop,” he said. “When does a person who expresses radical views, who joins a radical group, flip over to be a violent extremist? To find the signals, the red flags as it were, I think is enormously hard.”
As for Sweden, there is the declaration of Aje Carlbom, also made a few days ago, that:
“Anyone who wants to regulate immigration is immediately classified as a nationalist, which also implies a racist as well,” he said. “It is still almost impossible to debate this question.”
All predictions made by those who have been warning about the dangers threatening Europe are coming true. And this means that those predictions which have not yet been fulfilled are likely to come true, too. All those endowed with the capacity to foresee the long-term consequences of decisions being taken at a given time such as Enoch Powell, Lars Hedegaard, Fjordman, Udo Ulfkotte, Michael Stürzenberger and many others have been warning the West about what may happen if the actual left-liberal policies are pursued further on with no questioning nor criticism. In the words of a well-known blogger:
“The massive concentration of Muslims in major European cities will have dramatic consequences, some of which are already visible. If it is allowed to continue, it will destroy the coherence of society that is necessary for our legal systems to work. Increased urban insecurity means that the state is not able to guarantee the security of its citizens. If ordinary citizens feel that the state is no longer able to guarantee the safety of their loved ones, then perhaps native Europeans will create groups and clans of their own, to counter the Muslim clans. The result will be a re-tribalization of our countries. The downfall of the nation state, if it happens, will be chaotic, painful and bloody. Can it still be avoided? Only time will tell.” — Defeating Eurabia, 2008 – p.116
Time is increasingly proving that this scenario is less and less avoidable, and the Woolwich attack was the clearest of signals for this. The elites cannot avoid their own downfall, but it will be the consequences of their own deeds which will bring them down together with their ideology. Nor can great social unrest and clashes be avoided. The time of avoidance is now over. Warnings have been made, but as Enoch Powell stated: “such evils are not demonstrable until they have occurred.” This impossibility of demonstrating what may happen until it has already occurred was exploited by the left-liberal elites in order to sweep away any kind of counterbalance or criticism, even if it might have been truly constructive and worth hearing, and continue with their blind pursuit of power.
And we may soon see the dreadful outcome of this.
