If you'd like a glimpse of the future of the Western world—not just Europe but the United States and most other currently white majority countries—forget the happy chatter about the great Republican victory last week and take a look at Theodore Dalrymple's account in the Autumn issue of the Manhattan Institute's City Journal of what's happening in Paris, France.
What's happening in Paris is that Paris is rather quickly being annihilated, and the civilization of which it has long been a symbol along with it.
Mr. Dalrymple points out that while the population of Paris has risen by a mere 20 percent or less since 1959, reported crimes in the city have increased from 600,000 in that year to 4 million today. Reported cases of arson have increased by some 2,500 percent in the last seven years, and robbery with violence has increased by 44.5 percent since 1996.
Why is this? Mr. Dalrymple is somewhat coy in giving a frank and honest answer.
"Where does the increase in crime come from? The geographical answer: from the public housing projects that encircle and increasingly besiege every French city or town of any size, Paris especially. In these housing projects lives an immigrant population numbering several million, from North and West Africa mostly, along with their French-born descendants and a smattering of the least successful members of the French working class. From these projects, the excellence of the French public transport system ensures that the most fashionable arrondissements are within easy reach of the most inveterate thief and vandal."
Yes, that's the "geographical answer." It must be that anyone who lives in those housing projects becomes a criminal. Maybe they're haunted, or cursed, or maybe, as Mr. Dalrymple seems to suggest, it's because the architecture of the housing projects is totalitarian and dehumanizing.
But it couldn't possibly, ever, conceivably, be because of an alien race and culture.
While the millions of African and Muslim immigrants are torching Paris, their cousins in London are feasting. In that city, projected to have a non-white majority by 2010, police investigating a mysterious human torso recently found floating in the Thames suspect that human flesh is being sold in local markets, according to last week's Observer. [Human flesh 'on sale in London' Antony Barnett, Paul Harris and Tony Thompson, Observer, Sunday November 3, 2002]
There's no doubt that such rare delicacies as crocodiles' heads, chimpanzee meat, and (my own personal favorite) West African bushrat are being—well—gobbled up at fancy prices in London by African immigrants whose descendants will inherit the city of Johnson and Dickens. The torso itself is believed to be that of a five-year-old African boy who was "the victim of a ritualistic killing linked to a West African form of voodoo-like religion." The crocodiles' heads are medicinal, since they're believed to increase male sexual potency.
Bushrat, as far as I can tell, simply tastes good, but then the police also found rat feces, "which had been removed from rats' intestines and prepared as a delicacy for possible use in a ritual."
So far, police have found no direct evidence of human meat being sold, but they did confiscate packages of unidentifiable flesh and send it off for DNA analysis. The Observer quotes the director of Heathrow airport's meat transport as being "convinced that human flesh is finding its way into the UK as part of the bushmeat." He also thinks the trade is connected to the smuggling of drugs and humans. "We are dealing with very nasty people," he told the paper.
As in Paris, of course, there is a "geographical answer" or something like it to explain why the future population of Great Britain is suddenly adopting cannibalism, witchcraft and human sacrifice. That's the answer most newspapers, commentators, academics, and even police will give you.
And then there's the real answer—that if you allow millions of savages to invade your country, the country will become a land of savagery.
In Paris, there are areas where even the president of France cannot go—when President Jacques Chirac and his interior minister recently tried to campaign in them, Mr. Dalrymple reports, "The two dignitaries had to beat a swift and ignominious retreat, like foreign overlords visiting a barely held and hostile suzerainty: they came, they saw, they scuttled off."
If it's not obvious that the appearance of the most savage customs and Stone Age superstitions in a 21st century European nation is a sign that European civilization is collapsing, then the inability of a head of state to campaign inside the capital city of his own country surely should tell us that one civilization and its governing authorities are being replaced by others.
But you can bet your bushrat that the Open Borders lobby that insisted on letting the savages enter and even invited them inside our gates will learn nothing from what is now collapsing around their own ears.
