The Future of Europe

Europe is changing into something unrecognizable in terms of world history, causing questions of identity that in the history of the world no extant group can answer because they exist and not those they conquered. This is a fascinating philosophical question, but it's also a very disturbing problem of what, if anything, we as free citizens do when we watch our world shrink due to conquest by primitives. Below we see one tepid response from France, and then following that we see a letter posted here by a Swede. These questions of identity of the West are going to be with us till there is a concrete resolution, one that we feel will determine the future of Humanity in ways that are not considered by the general populations in the West at this time but that are fundamental to the nature of Man. Over the course of the evening we will return here to add more comments below. for now we leave the reader with these two approaches to our futures:

FRANCE: INTERIOR MINISTER AIMS FOR 25,000 EXPULSIONS IN 2006

Paris, 30 Nov. (AKI) - France's interior minister Nicolas Sarkozy has indicated he intends in 2006 to deport some 25,000 foreigners without proper papers, continuing a policy of increasing the number of such expulsions each year. Addressing the French Senate's commission on illegal immigration, Sarkozy also announced a tightening of rules governing asylum seekers.

In 2006, temporary accommodation will no longer automatically be provided to asylum seekers if they turn down the accommodation offered them, Sarkozy announced. And if their application for asylum is rejected, the asylum-seeker will now have 15 days instead of one month to appeal the decision, he said.

"I have embarked on a policy of systematically sending people back," Sarkozy told the commission. "The number of deportations of foreigners without proper papers which have been carried out has risen strongly," he continued.

A total 10,000 deportations were carried out in 2002, 12,000 in 2003, and 15,000 in 2004, he noted. "There are going to be more than 20,000 in 2005, and I have set a target of 25,000 for 2006," Sarkozy said.

An estimated 80,000-100,000 illegal immigrants arrive in France annually, according to Sarkozy. This compares with an annual 16,000-17,000 irregular migrants currently arriving in Italy per year. The income of traffickers involved in illegal immigration from Africa to Europe amounted to between one-quarter and one-third of the income generated by international drug trafficking, Sarkozy stated.

Sarkozy also criticised the regularisation of hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants by the Spanish and Italian governments as "dangerous", the French AFP news agency reported. "In the context of the freedom of movement, these large-scale regularisations are dangerous because they produce a considerable inward pull across Europe," the agency quoted him as saying.

This letter came in response to a piece on Sweden that we ran in July. Our friends at Gates of Vienna posted the link, and this writer responds as below:

Please. What a load of crap. Here in the socialistic state of sweden we deal with problems in a contructive, slow but clearing way and is not eliminating them as it were some kind of bugs with weapons. The Muslim´s is not a problem, but an unfair society is. ALWAYS. When these people have a solid ground, a nice environment, an income and self-believe there won´t be anything like violence. And this is what will be when the socialistic model work. You´ll see, buddy. (I´m not a big social party fan but I´m certainly not the opposite either. )

And please, we do have a culture, based on respect, freedom and equality values.

We welcome your comments, as always.

Here is a link that covers in great and lucid detail some of the situation in Scandanavia. In all, this is a site we find worth visiting, particularly today:

Europe is changing because we don't have enough children. Our leftist political elite tell us that mass third world immigration is the solution...yeah right!

Lack of children shouldn't affect Europe as it's doing. John at pedestrian infidel pointed out recently that Japan has a falling birthrate that inspires them to greater innovation rather than the lazy importation of Muslim criminals. South Korea is xenophobic to a high degree, allowing in some immigrants on a temporary basis as technical support but not as long-term residents, and certainly not as citizens; and South Korea is a fine place relative to Europe in terms of middleclass living. And finallt, why on earth would young people listen to let alone pay attention to a bunch of old bureaucrats opining on the nature of having children? Young people have children as a matter of nature unless something dramatic prevents them from doing so. Something is extraordinarily wrong in Europe, wrong not exactly with the people but with the societies of Europe, and something that goes deeper than the nature of biology, of the desire to have children. Something is wrong, for the lack of a beter term, with the soul of Europe.

In a post later this day I'll try to put up part four of our look at Georges Sorel, a problematic but interseting theorist from France at the turn of the last century, and perhaps in his works, as dicussed by Isaiah Berlin, we'll find some answers to the question of the illness of Europe today.

I like how he asked you,

"And please, we do have a culture, based on respect, freedom and equality values."


I think he ought to ask the Islamic Jihadis in his midst.

That's a friggin' funny letter.

Interesting analysis, they were talking about this on BBC radio in work today.

I love people. They are so unpredictable, you really never know what you are gonna get the next day or what kind of responses you will receive. Yeah, people can be as unpredictable as mind power seduce women how to attract girls mind power when you least expect it. But you can always predict one thing. Your own reaction. Your own reaction. And that is all I can say about that. Perhaps that is something Forrest Gump might have said.

Is there any easier way to make money then trading my time for money? I mean, day in, day out. This is just getting monotenaous! How long again do I have to work for doing the same thing over and over again. Perhaps it is the people at my office. Could that be it? I don't know. But I did end up checking that thing about mens aftershave that attract women that I touched on earlier. What a great resource for everything to know about that kind of stuff. Sheesh, I was amazed. And I think anyone interested in that would be, too.
