The deep Crisis of the West
Fjordman on the situation of the West
22.03.2014. My viewpoint is very simple: I desire a normalization of Europe. We should not colonize other countries, and they should not colonize us. Anyone holding this eminently sensible position now risks being branded an “extremist.” But which is more extreme? Is it supporting policies that will gradually displace the native peoples across an entire continent — Europe — or is it opposing these policies? These are the words of Fjordman (boldface in original) in his article Icebergophobia on the Titanic. He concludes as follows (emphasis added, link in original):
Today we have intercontinental air travel, the Internet and satellite TV. People can travel across the planet within hours, and live there mentally as if they never left home.
In both speed and sheer numbers, the current waves of migration are totally unprecedented in recorded human history. They easily exceed those we associate with the fall of the Roman Empire. Illegal immigrants enter by the tens of thousands. Meanwhile, the response of Western authorities is to ease border controls. With the Schengen Agreement, the EU all but abolished internal border control across much of the European continent at a time when people-smuggling has become one of the world’s largest industries. This is suicidal.
When our governments and mass media know fully well how many negative side effects there are to the current immigration, they should no longer be able to promote the same policies with a straight face. Yet far too often they do precisely that.
We’ve already seen major riots involving immigrants in Western Europe. Not just in Paris, France or in London, England, but in 2013 also in Sweden. Marseilles, France’s second largest city, is increasingly becoming an Arab and African city. Street crime there is so bad that even Socialists from an immigrant background want the army to be set in to tackle gang warfare and restore order; the local police lost effective control long ago.
If this is the situation today, what will it be like 20 to 40 years from now if we continue further down the same path? The sensible thing to do would be to halt mass immigration and attempt to fix the problems we have now, instead of adding more problems. Yet Western authorities don’t do that. Despite mounting evidence of how harmful it is, they continue promoting an open border policy as before. At most they make cosmetic changes to appease increasingly frustrated citizens, but rarely do anything substantial. This is no longer acceptable or excusable.
The Titanic hit an iceberg and sank in 1912. This tragedy has often been used as to illustrate what is happening to Western civilization. Europe plunged into a devastating war merely two years after the Titanic went down. It would be tempting to compare present-day Europe to the Titanic, but even this would not be accurate. Those in control of the Titanic tried to steer away from the iceberg as soon as they spotted it. It was too late; they hit it and sank, anyway.
Yet at the very least they made an attempt to change course, once they realized that disaster was imminent.
Those ruling Europe and the Western world today simply go full speed ahead, straight for the iceberg. Any objections are shouted down with accusations of ignorance, bigotry and icebergophobia.
We now need a change of course, not merely a change of rhetoric. If that doesn’t happen, it is unclear how much of European civilization will still exist by the end of this century.

First direct evidence of inflation and primordial gravitational waves
18.03.2014. Astronomers announced today that they have acquired the first direct evidence that gravitational waves rippled through our infant universe during an explosive period of growth called inflation. This is the strongest confirmation yet of cosmic inflation theories, which say the universe expanded by 100 trillion trillion times in less than the blink of an eye. Continue reading at CalTech.edu.
