Thought For The Day

A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers could control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced, because they love their servitude. To make them love is the task assigned in present day totalitarian states to ministries of propaganda, newspapers and schoolteachers. Aldous Huxley – Brave New World.

Mark Steyn - It's Still the Demography, Stupid.

Mark Steyn's “Must Read” new article on demographics and Western survival

Ten years ago this month - January 2006 - The Wall Street Journal and The New Criterion published my first draft of what would become the thesis of my bestselling book, America Alone. The Journal headline sums it up: "It's the Demography, Stupid." Opening paragraph:

Most people reading this have strong stomachs, so let me lay it out as baldly as I can: Much of what we loosely call the Western world will not survive this century, and much of it will effectively disappear within our lifetimes, including many if not most Western European countries. There'll probably still be a geographical area on the map marked as Italy or the Netherlands--probably--just as in Istanbul there's still a building called St. Sophia's Cathedral. But it's not a cathedral; it's merely a designation for a piece of real estate. Likewise, Italy and the Netherlands will merely be designations for real estate. The challenge for those who reckon Western civilization is on balance better than the alternatives is to figure out a way to save at least some parts of the West.

Thought For The Day

If we are to be completely honest about ensuring a peaceful future for our children and grandchildren, we first need to understand the following - Islam is a mortal threat to our civilization, but it cannot be destroyed. Neither can it assimilate or modernise. If Western civilisation is to survive the 21st century, our only option is to remove Islam from the West.
