what are European nationalists actually fighting for?

We need to be honest and clear-headed when examining the rise of the nationalist so-called far right parties in Europe. It would be pleasant to imagine that these parties are fighting to defend western civilisation but is that really the case? It seems to me that what they’re fighting for is a vision of western civilisation that is starkly at odds with the beliefs of traditionalists and social conservatives.
These parties, including the FN in France and Geert Wilders’ party in the Netherlands, have shown an alarming willingness to compromise on moral issues. In fact they’re prepared to make almost unlimited compromises on moral issues. The problem with this is that you can’t defend civilisation by abandoning everything that makes civilisation civilised.
In practice these nationalist parties are fighting for rainbow flags and Gay Pride marches. They’re fighting to defend the right of women to murder their unborn babies. They’re fighting for the right of feminists to go on destryong the foundations of society. They’re fighting for the rights of homosexuals to prey on our children. They’re fighting for the rights of liberals to brainwash our kids. 
They’re not defending civilisation. They’re defending liberalism.
It’s not the slight left-wing leanings of these parties that should worry us. It’s the fact that they are demonstrating very little willingness to oppose the moral degeneracy which is overwhelming the West.
There’s also very little sign that these parties have any vision of a Christian Europe. 
I’d like to see European civilisation saved, but only if there’s a European civilisation that is actually worth saving.

The decadent West – is it in terminal decline?

A Political Refugee From the Global Village quotes an article from the state-controlled Chinese news agency Xinhua claiming that the decadent West is in terminal decline. One of the commenters asked why things like out-of-wedlock births and homosexual marriage should be considered to be evidence of decadence. I’ve thought about it and I’ve come up with answer.
Homosexual marriage is sterile. Sterility is a hallmark of decadence. Recognising homosexual marriage means recognising a marriage that cannot produce children. It means voting No to the future. It is a vote for death. Cultural death, national death, even spiritual death. A society that embraces its own death is most assuredly decadent.
As for out-of-wedlock births, if a couple takes on the responsibility of having a child, the biggest responsibility there is, and they can’t even be bothered to make enough of a commitment to each other to get married, they are also voting No to the future. It is an indication of a lack of belief in the future. They are not creating a real family, merely a collection of individuals in a temporary association, an association that can be terminated at any time on the grounds of boredom or inconvenience or mere whim. This is the endgame of liberalism – a vote for cultural death.
The argument can be applied to just about every feature of our modern society. Stupefying oneself with drugs is saying No to the future. 
Our frighteningly low birth rates are an obvious sign of our culture’s embrace of a death cult.
Feminism, an ideology of women who hate themselves for being female and an ideology that seeks to encourage men to hate themselves for being men, is ultimately sterile, negative, self-pitying and self-destructive. Decadent.
The idea of men who think they’re women and women who think they’re men inevitably leads to further sterility. There people are not going to vote for the future by having children. Decadent.
I remember many years ago watching Kenneth Clark’s television series Civilisation. Lord Clark made the point that the transition from barbarism to civilisation could be traced in the buildings they produced. The European Dark Ages produced virtually no buildings that have survived because a society that has no belief in its future produces buildings of a purely temporary nature. There was a huge change around about the twelfth century. Suddenly Europeans were creating buildings, the medieval cathedrals, that are still standing today. They are still standing today because they were built to last. They were built by a society that had confidence that it had a future. In other words, a civilisation. Even more significantly, these cathedrals could take a century or more to be completed. The men who began their construction would never live to see them completed but they built them anyway because they had absolute confidence that the cathedrals would be finished by the following generations. This shows an extraordinary level of faith in the future.
A society that has not developed sufficiently to have confidence in its future is in a state of barbarism. A civilisation that has lost its belief in the future and has embraced its own death is in a state of decadence.
Families are like cathedrals. They require faith in the future. If you have that confidence you will want a real family built on the foundation of marriage. You are building something for future generations.
Feminism, homosexual marriage, out-of-wedlock births, pornography (the ultimate in sterility), the drug culture, celebrity worship, disastrously low birth rates, the voluntary submission to population replacement through immigration – this is serious death cult stuff. These are unmistakeable signs of a decadent society, if not in its terminal stages then certainly in serious danger of entering the terminal stages.

the moral decay of the west

Western civilisation is now engaged in a life-or-death struggle with militant Islam, and the west’s most dangerous enemy in this war is its own moral weakness and depravity.

The family has been all but destroyed and we are now in the process of putting the final nail in the coffin by legalising gay marriage. “Sex workers” are more respected than mothers. We are too selfish to raise our own kids and we expect the government to do it for us by providing unlimited childcare, a sure recipe for producing another alienated, immature and poorly socialised generation.

The western world is awash with drugs.

We have a growing underclass that is vicious and moronic.

Education standards have been slipping for decades. Schools teach kids about condoms but they can’t teach them to read. Universities are factories for producing political activists dedicated to destroying western civilisation.

Hatred of our own civilisation is the dominant characteristic of our mainstream media.

We have the Occupy movement – dirty unwashed hippies and poorly educated overgrown babies who think they can bring about the promised land by wallowing in their own excrement and chanting their hatred for their own society.

We have feminists preaching an agenda of hate and self-pity.

We have millions of people medicated to the eyeballs on Prozac, and more shockingly when children behave like ordinary children we label them as having ADHD and medicate them to the eyeballs as well.

In the US you can be a terrorist but that won’t stop you getting a cushy academic job in a university. Ask Bill Ayers.

We have environmentalists intent on destroying not merely the economies of the west but the entire western way of life. Scientists no longer care about truth, they just want funding.

We have no belief in our own civilisation or our own achievements. We are riddled with irrational guilt.

Unless we can rediscover some moral purpose and some belief in ourselves we have no chance of successfully facing the challenge of Islam.

The Last Days of Europe

In The Last Days of Europe distinguished historian Walter Laqueur argues that Europe as we know it will cease to exist at some point during the 21st century. What will replace it is not likely to be pleasant.

Laqueur identifies a number of major problems but by far the most serious is the collapse of European populations. The birthrate is so low in countries such as Italy and Spain that by the end of the century Italians and Spaniards will be no more than a tiny minority in their own countries. The situation in Russia is even more disastrous.

The second problem, Muslim immigration on a vast scale, will magnify the catastrophic consequences of the demographic collapse. In some European countries the Muslim population is reproducing at three or four time the rate of the European population. The Muslim minorities have not assimilated and are not going to assimilate, and when they become the majority they are unlikely to benign rulers, especially given that Muslims in Europe tend to be more radical and more extremist that Muslims in the present-day Islamic world.

The most frightening thing of all is that Europe’s leaders have simply ignored these problems until now it is too late.

No-one, including Laqueur, has been able to come up with a plausible explanation for the demogaphic suicide of Europe. Laqueur can offer few suggestions for dealing with the problems he has outlined. The best he can offer is that Europeans might try appeasement towards their rapidly growing Muslim population although he admits that appeasement has never worked in any other situation and is even less likely to work in this one.

An extremely good although thoroughly depressing book.
