The deep Crisis of the West


The raw data has been dumped

30.11.2009. Scientists at the University of East Anglia (UEA) have admitted throwing away much of the raw temperature data on which their predictions of global warming are based. It means that other academics are not able to check basic calculations said to show a long-term rise in temperature over the past 150 years. The UEA’s Climatic Research Unit (CRU) was forced to reveal the loss following requests for the data under Freedom of Information legislation. Continue reading in Times Online.


Troubling tendencies

29.11.2009. On 1 December the Lisbon Treaty comes into force and the European Union (EU) takes on the status of a genuine state with its own President and Foreign Minister. The Russian newspaper Pravda (Nov. 4) recently wrote that the EU is beginning to look like a “reincarnation of the USSR.” The appointment of Cathy Ashton as the first EU Foreign Minister (full title” “High Commissioner for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy”) would seem to confirm this. Paul Belien also writes the following in his Brussels Journal article:

When I interviewed [former Soviet dissident Vladimir Bukovsky] four years ago, he said that the aim of the EU to supplant the old nations of Europe with a new European identity endangers Europe and the world: “The ultimate purpose of the Soviet Union was to create a new historic entity, the Soviet people, all around the globe. The same is true in the EU today. They are trying to create a new people. They call this people “Europeans,’ whatever that means.”

Bukovsky thinks that, as in the Soviet Union, the political establishment will not succeed in its goal to obliterate the nationalities. “At the time of the Soviet collapse the suppressed feelings of national identity came bouncing back.” He expects the same thing will happen in the EU, but in the meantime many people will suffer and when the system collapses, considerable violence may occur.

“There will be a collapse of the European Union pretty much like the Soviet Union collapsed,” Bukovsky predicts.

“But do not forget that when these things collapse they leave such devastation that it takes a generation to recover. Just think what will happen if it comes to an economic crisis. The recrimination between nations will be huge. It might come to blows. Look to the huge number of immigrants from Third World countries now living in Europe. This was promoted by the European Union. What will happen with them if there is an economic collapse? We will probably have, like in the Soviet union at the end, so much strife that the mind boggles. In no other country were there such ethnic tensions as in the Soviet Union, except probably in Yugoslavia. That is exactly what will happen here, too. We have to be prepared for that. This huge edifice of bureaucracy is going to collapse on our heads. This is why, and I am very frank about it, the sooner we finish with the EU the better. The sooner it collapses the less damage it will have done to us and to other countries.”

What is their agenda?

28.11.2009. I've just become aware of an interesting exchange in Takimag. The whole thing started with the article Whiteout by Jared Taylor. These are the follow-up articles I've found:


Increasing problems

Riots in Paris ...

... with mostly black thugs beating up whites.

Antiracists going bananas - Could your child be branded a racist next?

13.11.2009. A six-year-old child cowers tearfully in her school's office. She knows she is in serious trouble for uttering a 'bad' word. Her fear is compounded by confusion. She has been accused of racism but is far too young to understand the gravity of the charge or grasp its dire implications. But she knows her transgression is a dreadful one: a phone call has been made to her parents; official forms have been filled in; the adults around her wear dutifully censorious expressions. The little girl is in tumult. She has to be reassured that the police will not come and take her away.

What heinous crime has she committed? During the course of a playground game, she has called another child 'blacky'. The 'victim' has neither complained about, nor even noticed, the remark. But a playground supervisor has. Diligently - and observing the Government procedures requiring all our schools to report 'racist incidents' - she has frog-marched the culprit to the office. In due course the little girl's 'crime' is logged on local authority files.

From there it becomes an official Government statistic. The incident is not an isolated one. Similar scenes are enacted in primary and even nursery schools every day, all over Britain.

HonestThinking is dedicated and committed to the art of thinking honestly. Yet honest thinking is not the same as true thinking, for it is possible to think honestly, but be mistaken. For the same reason, honest thinking is not identical with objective thinking either. Honest thinking is striving to get things right. This involves being truthful about whatever one publishes, but just as importantly, it involves an uncompromising dedication never to suppress relevant data, even when data collides with dearly held prejudices. Such an approach may sometimes cause hurtful revisions in one’s belief system. That’s what HonestThinking is all about! Read the entire manifesto.

The current European immigration and integration policy is profoundly disrespectful of both Muslims and Islam, because it is built on the tacit assumption that the Muslims will become like us. One claims to have respect for Islam and for Muslims, but one also expects Muslims to give up their orthodox faith when they come here. At the same time one is assuming that Islam will be reformed and modernized as soon as the Muslims become integrated and understand and appreciate how superior our Western culture is compared to their own. This is cultural shauvinism and arrogance indeed! The unspoken premise for this scenario is that Western socities are superior to Islam. Read more.




Human rights and democracy are under pressure. One threat comes from the Western world, in the form of lack of or dishonest thinking. There exists a peculiar Western "tolerance" which is so "tolerant" that it even tolerates totalitarian or anti-democratic ideologies. A tacit assumption underlying such an attitude is that all cultures, world views, and religions are really equally good. As a consequence of this assumption one is cut off from the possibility of critically examining the above mentioned ideologies. Read more.
