A New Global Conservative Agenda: Order vs. Chaos

A New Global Conservative Agenda: Order vs. Chaos, by Srdja Trifkovic. An interesting big-picture analysis.

It is in their cultural and moral diseases that Europe and America certify that they share the same chromosomes, that they belong to one culture and one civilization. … They include their ruling elites’ hostility toward all forms of solidarity or coherence of the majority population based on common ancestry and traditional culture; the loss of a sense of place and history; rapid demographic decline that goes hand in hand with rampant Third World, especially Islamic immigration; the collapse of private and public manners and morals; the imposition of “diversity,” “multiculturalism,” and “sensitivity” by despotic means; and the radical demonization and criminalization of any opposition to any of the above. …

In today’s Britain, France, or Germany, more people pray in mosques on Fridays than in churches on Sundays. Two thirds of Americans still define themselves as “Christian,” but those who have no religion of any kind dominate the academy, the media, the entertainment industry, “the arts,” business, and politics. …

Young Westerners in particular are estranged from their parents, ignorant of their culture, ashamed of their history. …

The end of the Cold War has cleared the way for the rise of a new global empire and the realization of new possibilities to the revolutionaries who want to move beyond the Gramscian “long march.” They have found that global empire paves the way for a cultural-Marxist paradigm by eradicating traditional structures capable of resistance. …

As for demography, the grim statistics are familiar to the curious: Europe is dying. … The share of the world population of the misnamed “developing countries” will exceed 90 percent by the middle of this century.

If these trends continue, within a century there will be no “Europeans” as we know them, in the Old World or New — members of coherent, defined groups that share the language, culture, history, and ancestors and inhabit defined territories as compact majorities.

In the process of Euro-annihilation, immigration is an essential tool of revolutionary change. By allowing a vast subculture of often-hostile immigrants to emerge within their societies, the Western elites have permitted the emergence of an alternative social and political structure, of which Islamic terrorism is but one consequence. By seeking to appease newcomers in the name of diversity, the host countries only whet these aliens’ appetites for more concessions from the aging baby boomers ever more dependent on imported labor to keep them fed, clothed, washed, and medicated. In all cases, the newcomers share the same contempt for what they perceive as a supine, degenerate host society.

For the elites, the outcome — a multiracial melange — is preordained; the process of reaching it is “democratic.” Anything likely to disrupt it, or any questioning of its assumptions, is a priori criminal. Hence the hysterical insistence, on both sides of the Atlantic, that the deluge is really a blessing that enriches a bland and culturally deprived host society. Multiculturalism has ensured that Western nations have lost the capacity to define and defend themselves vis-à-vis others, just as most immigrants demonstrably have no sense of kinship with their host societies. …

Can a gigantic reversal happen? … To a political scientist, the model of recovery frankly requires a catastrophic event—specifically, a colossal, rapidly spreading global economic crisis. The meltdown would have to be so rapid as to destroy confidence in the ability of governments to offer relief.

A breakdown of the “global economy” would force millions of people to reexamine their lives and assumptions. Becoming painfully disillusioned of progress, they would rediscover the value and force of tradition. The ensuing brutal struggle for diminishing resources would make them drop the neurotic becoming in favor of just being, or surviving. …

In the meantime many Western conservatives are discovering Russia as a natural ally. For a quarter century, Russia has been trying to rearticulate its goals and define its policies in terms of traditional national interests. …

The EU elite is zealously promoting an agenda of gay rights, multiculturalism, and neo-Marxist replacement of the “proletariat” by colored migrants. We are witnessing a progressive collapse of Europe’s will and urge for self-preservation, Spengler’s Decline of the West on steroids.

What we are witnessing is unparalleled in history. In all ages, societies have sought to protect themselves from intruders, especially those who are culturally and religiously alien; but the Euro-elite is charting a new course. … Its members seek to dictate and enforce their model of self-hate on millions of EU member-countries’ common people, and to prevent any attempt to defend and protect their patrimony: their nations, land, history, collective memories and assets. Any attempt to articulate defense is immediately criminalized. …

Today’s Russia embodies order and stability. This explains the paranoid, hysterical quality of the public discourse on Russia and all things Russian in today’s West. …

The game is not up. Cultural and demographic death is not the inevitable end of the road for all of us. We are endowed with feelings and reason, with the awareness of who we are: the heirs to the best, most creative civilization the world has ever known. The struggle of true Europeans to defend themselves against population replacement and cultural suicide is just, even if the outcome is uncertain. In the face of this uncertainty the first task of a conservative is to hold on to life, and beauty, and truth.

Read it all. China, Russia, and Eastern Europe are recreating themselves as an alternative civilization to the decadent PC West and the Islamic world.
