The End of Western Civilization

hattip: Fjordman

Philip Atkinson, a citizen of the UK, describes what he feels is the inevitable demise of both Britain and the United States...and the rest of the West.

Once the citizens of Western Civilization were determined as well as able, so they dominated the countries occupied by weaker cultures. However as the citizens of Western Civilization became selfish they lost their resolve, so the control exercised by Western communities declined. This allowed the colonies to recover their independence and re-assert their own culture, which inevitably obtained the poverty and misrule, which had existed before colonialism. As Western Civilization has abdicated its rule over its colonies, wealth and peace have given way to poverty and anarchy. The example of the social collapse of South Africa has been repeated all over Africa. For many citizens of these colonies, modest means enjoyed in peace have been replaced by a perilous poverty, and the only escape from this misery is to go to where wealth and peace still exist. The tide of influence has reversed. It is no longer flowing from, but to, Western Civilization; and instead of peace and wealth, it is poverty and anarchy that is now being spread. The result of this migration is inevitable; the invaders take over their new homeland by sheer weight of numbers. The original manners, customs and traditions of the destination country are slowly replaced by those of their invaders. This can be easily seen in the USA where the actual border with Mexico is slowly moving further north every year. Miami is now a Spanish-speaking city even though it is technically in America— an English-speaking country. The failure of the Western countries to defend themselves, reveals the powerful understanding once created by Western Civilization has already dissolved. The two awful signs of impending communal death, the extinction of genius and the loss of the military spirit, are there for all to see. The mainly selfish citizens that now comprise Western Civilization may still possess the technology discovered by genius, but they no longer have the wit nor the resolution to employ it. The World Trade Centre attack is confirmation of Arnold Toynbee's claim that the decline of a civilization means the appearance of Barbarian war-bands. And it is clear that, in one way or another, it is only a matter of time before the increasing senility of the countries that make up the Western world, will see them succumb to invaders. The result will be the final extinction of Western Civilization, along with its wealth and power, and a return to the dark ages.

Although the tide seems relentless, this shouldn't mean that we should leave off trying to resist and repel the invasion. I know I won't.
