Europe for Europeans? Understanding the migrant crisis
Maltese people living in Malta generally want to live in a Maltese society. The same is true for most other countries which haven't been irrevocably brainwashed into the intercontinental carpark of an idea, where nobody belongs anywhere and nobody is at h
Certainly, most people are generally not all too fussed about mixing with different cultures and absorbing the best of them. We do this with different sorts of cuisines, entertainment, sports, you name it. But this does not translate into what we are seeing today – mass importations of sub-Saharan and middle-eastern economic migrants whose culture and values are perfectly antithetical to our own.
Indeed, the values and norms in Eritrea or Pakistan are not the same as Maltese values. And migration from New Zealand to Malta is not the same as migration from Eritrea to Malta. To give you one point of contact, we live in a Christian and classically liberal society. And this is made clear when you look at our views on women’s rights, human rights, gays, the separation of church and state, property rights, and so on.
These views are not reciprocated in Eritrea or Pakistan, to put it very mildly. Their views on Jews, gays, women, religious minorities and all our basic western freedoms could not be more different to ours. Leaving out the religious ideology that embodies such antiliberal ideas, it is patently obvious that two random populations from New Zealand and Eritrea will have different views on these values. Those who dispute this may exempt themselves from the confines of reasonable conversation and enter the realm of unreason (along with the screeching feminists and liberal virtue-signallers who seem to be everywhere these days).
Continuing this line of reasoning, it follows that migrants coming from such places are not magically imbued with the works of John Locke, Aristotle or Nietzsche on entering Europe. Instead, they carry their backwards ideas with them across the Mediterranean only to be told that we here in the West are tolerant towards their intolerant, illiberal and I dare say anti-Christian mentality, and that they need not adapt to our values and our way of life. This is the message we are sending when we promote a no-border, multicultural nonculture – a mind-numbing idea when you consider that we enforce borders in every facet of our life. You wouldn’t let total strangers into your house now would you?
Under different circumstances, this observation would be crystal clear to us. Indeed, if white supremacists were leaving South Africa in droves for a new life in Malta, then we’d have a thing or two to say about that and then some – and this would be a good thing.
But why is it that we are seemingly unable to realise that migrants might have bad ideas as well? In addition, why do we shudder at the prospect of enforcing our own borders as well as repatriating those who act on their bad ideas? Not to mention the fact that in a recent UN report, up to 80 per cent are economic migrants, making them illegitimate from the get-go.
So why do so many on the left suspend their faculties of reason when sub-Saharan and middle-eastern migrants are in question? Is it just political correctness? Is it an effort for reparations for perceived evil doings of generations past? Interestingly, this last point is always a one-way street, as you never hear liberals decrying the Turkish Empire in the same breath as they do colonialism (or in any breath for that matter).
However, there is one fundamental fact the left cannot seem to get their head around – the reality that different cultures are not equal. The Nazis had a culture and so did the Bolsheviks. Were they the same as modern western democracies?
Consider these few examples. Six hundred and twenty million Indians – that’s nearly half the population of India – defecate in public. UNICEF has to run campaigns teaching them how to use toilets. Similar campaigns have been run in Germany recently due to the influx of middle-eastern and sub-Saharan migrants.
An outlawed tradition that is still found across Afghanistan called “bacha bazi” (dancing boys) forces boys as young as 10 to dress as little girls and dance for paedophiles who then rape and abuse them. In the West, we do not celebrate paedophiles, we put them in prison.
In Mauritania in Sub-Saharan Africa, it is estimated that up to 20 per cent of the population are modern-day slaves – that’s people being bought and sold and subjected to forced labour under threat of violence. Whereas some cultures still practise and condone slavery in the 21st century, the British Em- pire abolished the practice in 1833, and the rest of the West followed suit.
To say that all cultures are equal is to say that these practices are perfectly fine when they clearly are not. This reluctance to admit that some cultures are better than others partly stems from a fear of what might follow, and I understand that reservation. But recognising an unpleasant reality does not mean going down the worst possible route – that is a choice. In other words, hard truths do not dictate our beliefs, they inform them.
With this politically-incorrect truth in mind, would it not make more sense to educate these masses of disparate peoples in their own country instead of importing them wholesale and hoping for the best?
After all, our esteemed politicians have already conceded that multiculturalism does not work. Indeed, in 2010 Angela Merkel herself said that multiculturalism had failed. A year later, then-President Sarkozy and Prime Minister Cameron also said that multiculturalism had failed. But despite these acknowledgements, the peoples of Europe are still invited to believe that when migration was at a relative low point multiculturalism had failed, whereas when migration is at a historic high then it could possibly work. This is a very impossible thing to believe.
We are also invited to believe that numbers don’t matter; that the hundreds of thousands of people entering Europe illegally each year will not change our societies in any way, despite the fact that second and third generation immigrants are becoming more radicalised, particularly in the UK.
Now maybe everything will turn out all right. Perhaps we just need to give them time to integrate and all will be well if we just let things play out, as
