Diversity does not justify war, chaos and social disenfranchisement in Europe or the Middle East

The term 'diversity' is being used as a euphemism for chaos and social disenfranchisement in mass people movements which are politically packaged as both positive and inevitable, much as slavery was in the 18th and 19th century. UN Deputy Secretary General Jan Eliasson has said that 'the refugee crisis in Europe has created fear and hatred among local residents, which should be combated by bringing to light the positive contributions of migrants to creating a diverse society'.[1]

The Numbers

"The number of international migrants reached 244 million in 2015, an increase of 41 per cent compared with 2000, the United Nations says in a report. The report published on Tuesday, the latest biennial revision of migration trends, found that the number of people who had moved to another country - voluntarily for economic reasons or because of conflicts - had risen by 71 million since 2000."[1]

The influx into Germany and which is overflowing to the rest of Europe amounts to an invasion because permission was not sought from the ordinary people who bear the impact on jobs, housing, social and natural environment of these colossal numbers of people. At the same time the immigration flows are the result of wars that European leaders and global commerce are inflicting on the sending countries.

Imposed mass immigration compromises self-determination and democracy

Talk of 'diversity' as if different ethnicity/religion is the only feature of the problem of mass immigration to Europe is to ignore the sheer numbers of people seeking work and housing. Such huge changes in demand form the greater part of economic and social impact and the resultant hardship and inconvenience is an affront to citizens who were not consulted.

Talk of 'diversity' in the face of this huge and largely irrevocable change to numbers and composition of society has the effect of further reducing the scope of citizen input into self-government (which is a kind of cooperative population management). Self-government involves cooperative apportioning of work and housing as well as supporting infrastructure within a society defined by its membership (citizens). It is usually managed through long established civil legal and institutional processes only available to citizens or visaed immigrants.

How a population evolves is a traditional and anthropological prerogative of its members, not commercial 'stakeholders' or global political players. A sudden redefinition of membership without consultation is a fundamental problem.

War and mass migration: Criminal role of the press and governments

When external forces produce massive population changes, this is usually referred to as war. Whilst we do know that US-NATO members have a long history of and a current responsibility for the wars in the Middle East that are producing much of these mass migrations, it is difficult to pinpoint what organisations and people are really behind the manipulation of numbers in Europe through open-door policy. This is because they hide behind rhetoricians like the UN Deputy Secretary, national leaders such as Merkel, and a pro 'diversity' corporatised and syndicated global media that obviously has interests in labour market, weapons manufacture, international trade and the transmission of power through chaos. In fact, apart perhaps from Putin's Russia, most of us do not know who is in charge of nations anymore; policies seem to be influenced from many transient global hats.

The mainstream press have had a criminal role along with EU and European governments in suppressing discussion of the numbers involved and manufacturing an apparent consent to them against real citizen feelings. In tandem these actors have consistently talked up US-NATO roles in wars that have caused these population disruptions in the Middle East. These arrogant attitudes and manipulations of perception have caused chaos, suffering and death.

Diversity doesn't nail it

'Diversity' is a non-sequiteur in the face of western warmongering overseas and manipulation of European population numbers and institutions to reduce wages, inflate housing prices, and generally place pressure on established social gains and citizens rights.

Unfortunately many commercial ventures use the UN as a respectable umbrella for advancing their own selfish interests. Any organisation may register as a UN member on a variety of bases and the UN attracts government, property and banking lawyers, ideological entities with strong links to business and government, such as the Australian Multicultural Foundation, and a variety of businesses in various guises looking for opportunities. (See Associated projects are often described as 'development' initiatives but they are about taking over land and resources, changing local laws, exploiting and disorganising workforces in the sending and receiving countries.

The people behind some of these trends are so craven that they do not seem to think twice about provoking and stoking protracted wars and genocides, except to justify them with flimsy excuses.

Left-right conflicts growing

Another aspect of these problems is a growing division between 'left' and 'right' in population politics as reported, endorsed and incited by the mass media. In a strange way it is reminiscent of the setting for the rise of fascism in Germany. In those days the right (the Nazis and the Italian fascists) were encouraged by big business and the mass media as a means of combating the 'left' or the rise of communism. The communists were for the uniting of workers against exploitation and war but the fascists were for exploitation and pro-war. Today we have a situation where groups identified by the mainstream press as 'left' and 'anti-fascist' are coming into conflict with groups identified as 'right-wing'. Counter-intuitively the left-wing, as presented by the mainstream press, seems to think it is okay to have disorganised mass immigration and has almost nothing to say against the wars producing these population movements. The right-wing seems to be the only voice criticising US-NATO involvement in wars in the Middle East, and they are definitely against uncontrolled mass immigration. At the same time, the center left and center right that control most governments and are aligned with the mass media encourage mass migration and encourage war. That leaves unrepresented people of a center left or center right disposition who are neither in favour of war or mass migration. This is a glaring omission and one senses that it is deliberate on the part of the mass media that claims to represent public opinion globally.

Angela Merkel has opened the gates of hell - behind paywall, emphasis below added - Ed

I'm from Germany and I can tell you that the horrific reality of Angela Merkel’s migrant policy cannot be overstated. More than 1.1 million arrived last year, and thousands more are arriving every day via Austria. Family and friends in Germany tell me that most of them are young men with a very bad attitude. They don’t speak German, and many don’t even speak basic English. Many are also illiterate. School halls and gymnasiums have been converted into makeshift refugee camps to house them. Female students have been told to cover up to avoid "misunderstandings" with their new compatriots. In Dresden, beautiful city parks have also been bulldozed overnight to make way for tent cities to house migrants. Every train station, park, and hospital emergency ward is now awash with these people. They relieve themselves in public, groups of them have attacked and robbed supermarkets, and the number of muggings, rapes and sexual assaults has skyrocketed.

The German media has suppressed what is going on. Angela Merkel has opened the gates of hell. Everyday life in Germany is now a living nightmare.

In Brussels Attack: The True Implications of ISIS Links (22/3/16) | New Eastern Outlook (republished (23/3/16) in Land Destroyer) Tony Cartalucci uses his exceptional insight and knowledge of Syria and European politics to show how suspicious and inconsistent is the official mainstream narrative of the Brussels Bombing of 22 March.

However, this otherwise informative article is unjustly critical of Europeans who actively opposed the huge wave of immigration suddenly imposed upon them by politicians, notably German Chancellor Angela Merkel and the corrupt Turkish President Erdogan.

Cartalucci cites a Guardian op-ed of 22 March which claims that the terrorists were long time residents of Europe and not new arrivals. This would hardly be surprising, as it would surely require local knowledge and familiarity in order to be able to carry out such a devastating attack. Cartalucci continues:

Should the Brussels attack be linked to this same terror network, it will greatly complicate efforts by some to leverage this tragedy to further their agendas against refugees ...


In Europe, where the flames of a "clash of civilizations" are being furiously and intentionally fanned, ISIS serves as a constant implement to empower extremists on both sides, while drowning out the voices of unity, moderation, and peace in the middle. It allows for a growing police state and xenophobic tendencies to flourish at home, while justifying further war abroad.

Presumably Cartalucci considers German Chancellor Angela Merkel to be for "unity, moderation, and peace" and would label those, who voted against her in the recent German regional elections as well as the 143 women assaulted in Cologne on New Year's Eve, and those who tried to protect them, 'extremists'.

Typically when these events occur (which seems frequent now), they cry that somehow if we conclude some sort of incompatibility or issue with Islam, then we're playing into ISIS's hands.

So, we are told don't react to violence. Reaction to violence is what they want.

Yet what is quite often the very same people, can't help themselves when they react to what they perceive as racist or xenophobic. Here they are happy to fan the flames of division and resentment.

Europe is self destructing. It has become obsessed with consoling itself, which is what sometimes happens when members of a pack animal species are ejected from the group and face death. I suspect that part of the reason there is so much obvious display of grief, of compassion, sorry, unity, is because we're looking at a people who have to a degree some subconscious awareness that their fate is sealed, as there is nothing more that you can do. This problem will only escalate, and no measures to curtail it are allowed. They have no choice but to learn to live with it, and damn to hell those who suggest otherwise. So stoically walk arm and arm and face your destiny with a smile and defiance.

I don't accept that Europeans or Australians have "to live with" what the ruling elites have planned for them. The anti-immigration and anti-globalist National Front of Marine Le Pen won 27.73% of the vote in the first round of the December 2015 French regional elections, more than either the openly pro-corporate Union des Démocrates et Indépendants on 26.65% of the vote or the 'left wing' 'Parti socialiste on 23.12% of the vote.

However, the National Front failed to win a single region, because the other two parties acted together against the National Front during the second round.

Marine Le Pen is a member of the European Parliament. There is good reason to hope that the National Front, with a capable leader like Marine Le Pen and grass roots action, will be able to overcome the manouvers by the other two main parties and win the next French elections.

Simple mathematics and simple demographics will tell you that many parts of Europe will soon be non-European. At this point, it will be too late to realise the truth that if you change the demographics if your country, then its character, well-being and culture will also change.

Europeans are holding onto some weird pipe dream that just a little more sensitivity, a little more suppression of 'hate speech' is all it will take to avert the coming crisis. If a generation or two ago, the social experiment was aborted, we could have avoided the rise of the far right and the emergence of extremism, but calling for that to stop NOW is folly. Too late.

No society has ever demographically changed hands seamlessly. Violence is in the future. It's already started and there will be no choice but to side with aggressive parties and organisations which defend your ethnic and cultural interests. It will be the establishment and migrants on one side, indigenous on the other.

This is what is happening in the USA today.

The question is, how will Europeans adapt to the new political reality? The idea of a single state is dying. France, Belgium, UK, will continue to splinter and become balkanised.

I think everyone, left and right, is kind of hoping that some changes of bums in parliament seats is all it will take. I think they are trying to avoid the fact that history has not finished, the great conflict between human groups is continuing and that war, displacement and aggressive takeovers are not "in the dustbin of history", but rather still alive and well.

I forsee a time when European nations may quite literally be dissolved and replaced with a stratified society, a new caste system or new apartheid.

I'm inclined to agree with you Dennis. I cannot see any way out for Europe or European nations with aggrandisement of US hegemony. Furthermore, we as a nation, are at the crossroads with gutless governments acceding to numerous "trade" agreements, the abolition of of manufacturing industries, the dumbing down of the electorate via a spineless mainstream media added to the neoliberal dogma which predicates individualism, elitism, stratification of society, economic rationalism, greed, power lust and more.

Combining the above with rampant overpopulation and runaway global warming will produce a confluence of devastation on planet Earth. As a firm believer of Murphy's Law, I shy away from making predictions of what will be in the future, but I do believe in taking out insurance when and where I can. Unfortunately, there is, as far as I'm aware, no insurance against climate change. It's too late!! Our numbers upon the planet have entrenched our predicament casting aside mitigation leaving us with adaptation as our only tool. And, I'm afraid, that adaptation will not be enough for most of us to survive when we face a 6-8 degrees Celsius temperature increase. Given that we are somewhere between 1.5 & 2 degrees already..............

Donald Trump has questioned why the USA has a presence in Europe, to defend and steer Europe. Much of what happens in Europe is due to US influence. The European establishment know that the USA will back them if any European states decide to follow their own path.

Europe has two potential outcomes.

The first is a steady, slow decline where it more and more resembles the conditions found in parts of Asia and the Middle East. Routine low level violence, stratification of society (as practiced in India) and loss of opportunities. We will see Europe resemble Brazil or the Middle East or some other society which occupies the place the a former civilisation, but isn't one itself.

The second is the rather more turbulent and abrupt conflict, in which all bets are off. This could lead to global conflict as neo-liberalism wages war against dissenting states.

What is becoming clear is that there is a type of class struggle going on, where an international neo-liberal class is fighting for survival to maintain the validity of their social project. They are facing growing opposition, be it tepid opposition in the form of Trump and Sanders, or more vociferous opposition in the form of the "far right" and "far left". Of these groups, I think the "right wing" has a closer grasp of the demographic issues and the left a closer grasp of the economic ones. We need some kind of synthesis of the two, where we both recognise the damage caused by using international migration and meddling in order to engineer individualistic consumer societies in place of real, organic communities, and the damage of Capitalistic excesses and plutocracy.

I will make a prediction, that a global solution to climate change will take more and more a backseat as society struggles to maintain itself.

Migrants push Germany's fertility
rate to 33-year high

Migrant mothers helped boost
Germany's fertility rate to a 33-year high last year.
The Federal Statistical
Office reported Monday that Germany's overall fertility
rate rose to 1.50 children per woman in 2015, compared
with 1.47 the previous year.
The 2015 rate was the highest
since 1982, when the figure stood at 1.51.
New data show that women with
German citizenship had a fertility rate of 1.43, up from
1.42 in 2014.
Women with foreign
citizenship had a fertility rate of 1.96 in 2015, compared
with 1.86 the previous year.
The country of 80
million recorded an influx of almost 900,000  last year. Most
were fleeing hardship in Africa, Asia and the Middle
 of 2.1 is needed

"Migrants push Germany's
fertility rate to 33-year high" October 18, 2016

At the end of the comment, 'Europe needs to downsize but immigration growing it' there is a statement that a 'fertility rate of 2.1 is needed to keep populations stable'. This is completely erroneous where you have floods of immigration. The German population has been drastically destabilised by recent floods of immigrants, so, in order to remain 'stable' it would have to lower its fertility rate.

The whole 'demographic transition' fable trips up on immigration, which it never takes into account. On the basis of the demographic transition one might describe Australia or Germany as post demographic transition, but the reality is that they are now impacted by imposed population growth from the outside, which completely counteracts the so-called demographic transition to stability and small population.

Bluntly put, the German nation is being replaced by other nations.

The state is NOT the nation! Nations exist independently of a state. They can exist within a state, between multiple states, or without one. The assumption that registration with a state apparatus defines ones 'nationalist' is a dangerous, foolish and incorrect assumption that Europeans direly need to drop. The idea that a bureaucracy defines ones identity is a pernicious idea that needs to die.

Germany's population or growth rate is not increasing because of migration. The growth rate of the German nation remains unchanged. The growth rate of other nations which are being administered by a state which just happens to share the same name however, is another matter.

This confusion of terminology and ideas is why people are having trouble counteracting the global growth lobby, and International Capital. By not having the concepts of nationhood and statehood as two independent entities, it leads to confusion like this, and people don't see the problems because they don't have the mental frame of reference, or the language, to analyse and spot it.

Thanks for that useful argument, Dennis. Self-determination is confounded at every level by this takeover of language by the people who have got control of states and the media.
