Imagine that the British leadership of those days had compacted with Germany to put a quick end to Bolshevism, and then had gone on to preempt multicultural America as the world's hegemon, developing instead a society consecrated to unexampled cultural development centered upon the qualities of the Caucasian peoples.
Aspirational societies require the best available demographics, an approach directly antithetical to today's egalitarian hysterias . (One can of course understand why second- and third-rate people, not to mention today's major parties and papers, adore equality.)
It didn't have to be impossible - a future with operas houses for each 10,000 citizens, a million-volume library for every urban square mile, everyone his high quality telescope, every child his or her quantum computer, the prevention of all diseases, the modeling of DNA to produce an improved species, the advance of civilization into the galaxies, the promotion of transcendent love, novels as good as modern cosmology, the resurrection of the Greeks.
Far too utopian of course. Far, far, far. And yet... Imagine just for the fun of it that we had invested as deeply into the above-mentioned as we flush away on stocks and bonds, elective wars, advertising, overkill housing, compassion, parliamentary democracy, fanatical athletics and degrading entertainments.
But that's not of course what the masses want, that prefer more (and less expensive) beer, TV idiocy, rugby victories, a 15-hour work week, larger breasts and longer dicks.
Racism is a wonderful institution that should be rejuvenated and inculcated in schools. It is the last barrier to global homogenization, and represents the default position of 99% of humanity over 99% of historical time.
A natural and indeed necessary sentiment, racism is just one method for people to evaluate others in accord with their genetic value. Without racism, the world today would be dominated by Neanderthals, or by the class of people who mostly inhabit sub-Saharan Africa. Civilization requires the leadership of society's best people; those areas governed by less advanced demographics fall quickly into barbarism, as we see in so many places. In normal times, racism is so universally experienced that historians hardly bother to call attention to it. It is only in diseased and perverted eras, like our own, that elites rail against this ineradicable and precious human attribute.
Hate, too, is a necessary and valuable component of life, and anyone devoid of hate - (I've never known such a person) - isn't living a complete life.
Racism and hatred are not illegal, no more so than vegetarianism or finger painting. A healthy society will never try to sequester such normal emotions, an effort forever destined to failure. I myself have a full supply of hatred and loathing and racism, which I take out every night and polish to a high sheen.
Within this century, the population of Africa, economically the world’s poorest region, is expected to surpass two billion. Other non-European societies are likewise projected to experience large or even massive population growth. The wealthiest and most attractive areas, primarily Europe and America, are expected to see modest population growth and in some cases diminution.
Some western countries are witnessing a reduction in the size of the native population. By the end of the century, these more successful peoples will represent only a trace element in the global population. At the same time, their societies will be the target of hundreds of millions, possibly billions of aspiring immigrants from outside the western realm.
For as long as western countries remain wealthier and more comfortable than most, they will continue to draw great numbers of immigrants, actual and potential, from places where conflict, overpopulation, ecological failure and social deterioration inspire continuing immigration. By century’s end, hundreds of millions will wish to enter western countries. Owing to their numbers and western humanitarianism, it will not be possible to halt the flood.
Eighty years from now the nations deemed by immigrants as most desirable will have been submerged in tides of less gifted, or anyway less successful peoples, a consequence of the current belief in ruling western elites, exemplified by the editors of this journal, that economics is the only important social value, that people are fungible, and that all are equal.
If the liberal belief in the equal cultural potential of all people is correct, then civilization at a high level may continue. If not, not. My own expectation is for a new Dark Age, more awful than the last one, and a world in which civilization may never again achieve the quality of, for example, that of classical civilization, or of Europe and America up until the triumph of egalitarian thinking.
