Europe versus Australia.

A number of my acquaintances have expressed some measure of perplexity at my decision to move to Europe at this point in time. As one said to me last night, “you sure will be at the pointy end of events going down in Europe.” He meant that by way of stating that I am either brave or foolish but probably an unbalanced mix of both.

I don’t think my decision is anything of the sort. If anything it is strategic. The common assumption is that Europe is going to the doghouse while Australia will continue its relative calm and prosperity down here in this isolated corner of the globe. This assumption is so common amongst the right and the alt-right here in Australia that it is never commented upon. It is taken as gospel truth.

Well let me do a spot of gospel dispelling for you all.

I think that Australia is in a very perilous state, far more perilous than Europe’s current situation. There are a number of factors that suggest that European culture will soon buckle under the combination of internal and external attacks that it currently faces. These include multiculturalism, Islam, and the economic malaise that has infected Europe since the introduction of the common currency. While these challenges are evident, I think that Europe will ride out the coming storm with some degree of success.

Multiculturalism is a lie and a betrayal whose intent is to destroy the host nation’s culture. But the nations of Europe have roots that go very deep indeed. I do not have to explain the concepts of Italy, The Netherlands, Spain, or Austria. These cultures as concepts are strong and clear. The people are the culture and we have no doubt who a Frenchman is and what distinguishes him from a German and vice versa. Multiculturalism can only really be successful in a culture that is weak or young. This is not a feature of any culture in Europe.

Europe is threatened by Islam but it has suffered this threat over a thousand years of conflict with that religion. If Europe has demonstrated one thing time and again over its history it is that it is extremely efficient in the task of getting rid of vast numbers of people if it so desires. It has also been aided in this task by geography. If Europe decides to expel a vast number of people then the Mediterranean provides a quick and handy crossing to facilitate this transfer. If not then they can always go by foot. There are precedents for both these eventualities.

Europe’s economic problems have been exacerbated by the euro and the EU as a whole but this stagnation is artificial. Which means that when the dam breaks and the EU falls it will inevitably usher in a period of economic prosperity as countries regain control of their individual economies and currencies. The ability to devalue a currency in order to make exports and tourism more competitive will see countries in the EU that are able to manage the transition competently do very well indeed. The fastest growing economy in the world right now is Great Britain. I do not need to mention what occurred recently in that nation.

Australia on the other hand is badly placed on all of these fronts. It is often cited that Australia is the lucky country, but I do not like this lazy maxim. Australia seems lucky but that luck was built on hard work and toil. Africa has even more mineral resources available to it than does Australia and yet that dark continent is forever mired in poverty of thought and deed. But this continual deference to luck has the affect of marginalizing that which truly does make Australia great. We have sat on our forefather’s laurels for too long but our misguided mentality is that we are their equal.

Australia is a young country and in the face of multiculturalism that is unfortunate. A culture that is barely 200 years old does not fare well when almost a quarter of that time has been spent under cultural Marxism’s long march through its institutions. Our culture and national identity are now so weak that anyone can turn up on our shores, partake in a citizenship ceremony, and openly declare that they are Australian. Whereas if I after spending ten years in Italy and speaking fluent Italian were to declare that I am Italian, people would look at me as if I were soft in the head.

If anyone in the world can be of your national identity then you have no national identity. Australia is the most successful multicultural nation in the world and that is something to be very worried about.

But what if Australia did wake up and decide to expel all of the foreigners that currently infest its shores? Here geography plays a cruel hand against us. While our isolation serves us well to protect us it is also a severe obstacle once we have already been invaded. We have also never had blood on our hands. We have no history of making hard choices in an internal sense because we have never had to face them before. The numbers of fake Australians present as a percentage of the population are far higher than anything faced in Europe. Frankly, if it did come to expulsions then I don’t like our chances.

Australia has mismanaged its economy terribly since the 2008 financial crisis. I had some hope when the conservatives returned to power under the Abbott government but they have managed the extraordinary feat of doubling the debt that Labor inflicted upon us. Economically, Australia is the laughing stock of South East Asia. We send trade missions to Singapore where our female trade delegates lecture their hosts on how to manage their economies. The Asians listen politely but think that we are mad. No country in the world has hamstrung its own economy under such a raft of regulations, particularly those referred to as “heath and safety,” as Australia has done. We have an enormous property bubble, we are buying our own gas supplies back from foreign interest because we were stupid enough to sell away the rights with no provisions to supply our domestic market, and we have succeeded in making our electricity supply both unreliable and obscenely expensive under the banner of “green energy”.  And this in a country with the energy reserves that Australia boasts; it is nothing short of stupefying.

Our nation is the only one in the history of humanity where disparate states came together voluntarily under no threat or coercion, and formed a nation. That strength is our weakness. We took it for granted because we never had to fight for it. I have no doubt that Europe is in for tough times and on the face of it my move seems reckless. But Australia is in for much tougher times and our population is not the same one that stormed the beaches at Gallipoli or stopped the Japanese on the Kokada Track.

We have sold our nation down the river and I do not see a light at the end of the tunnel. Quite simply, we have stuffed this country.

    I look forward to hearing your opinions on Europe once you move there. I worry that enough Muslims have got in there already to slowly breed each European culture out of existence. It may take 20 to 50 years but eventually, with up to eight children per couple and several wives each, Muslims will flood the populations, infiltrate the regulatory bodies and Sharia Law, at first ‘mild’ and then, after an extremist take-over, severe, will ultimately win out.

    Maybe in the past Europeans have been able to fight & conquer the invading tribes of Muslims but in these modern times when they are taking over by stealth and we are all law abiding citizens…. Only with a strong future government in each country will any mass deportations occur. And how likely is that? The French can’t even vote Marine Le Pen in and look at the streets of Paris! Overrun by migrants and their filth.

    Also, I heard that countries like Sweden, The Netherlands & Germany were more ‘left’ than us and had been at it longer. I think Europe is just one huge saucepan, bubbling away slowly, while well over 50% of the population is sitting in there warming up.

    And I also think Australia does have its own culture. We make a joke of everything, we are a little on the slack side, we look after our friends, make sacrifices for our families and are generally a happy bunch.

  2. Yes, a good hard headed appraisal. I am not looking forward to the soft headed unprincipled Nat Government in New Zealand leading us down the same path ten years behind you.
    Here’s my guess. Your previous adventures in Italy and language skills will take you back there. [ He could even have an Italian wife ] This nostalgia for rural living , and the utterly vile Melbourne will keep you out of the large cities in Italy.
    It sounds good. You mentioned elsewhere that many of us lack the courage when younger to move decisively to other countries. That was me, so now I can only afford a low currency Country, Thailand. But its warm here in our vile South Island winters.

  3. Britain isn’t the fastest growing economy in the world or even close. It isn’t even the fastest growing economy in Europe. That would be Germany – at least according to the Financial Times.

  4. I agree with this (having moved from Melbourne to Paris, but I’m a Brit).

    One of the main differences between Australia and France is that the average Frenchman will not deny what their country’s problems are. They might not do anything about them, but they will acknowledge them if they are pointed out. Point out something totally stupid to an Australian about their own country – like the cycling helmet law – and they go into full-on, thin-skinned denial mode accompanied with cries of “Fack off, whinging Pom!” Despite, or perhaps because of, Australians always talking about how great Australia is, they don’t seem all that comfortable under the surface.

    The real question for each nation is who will fight this globalism and what and who will they fight for. I see southern European men as more masculine and their women more feminine yet Italy is the most over run and Greece has collapsed. At some point the men will see they have no choice but to make a stand in lots of small and big ways.

    A counter culture revolution has started but the enemy is still immensely powerful. I think Britain is actually weaker than mainland Europe due to the cultural Marxists ascendency in the BBC and the political class. The English have been cut off from their history and uniquely denied a legitimate nationalism. Education and Academia have a huge responsibility for this global and leftist indoctrination.

    A number of key paradigms of the elites world view are fracturing, global warming, the world economy, multiculturalism, human rights legalism and the disaster of open border migration. Security and crime will be a huge blow to the system. The Media messaging is fraying and more hysterical; we can see the glitches in the matrix on a daily basis.

    But, but, they could still weather the storm. With another world recession just around the corner and pitiful political leadership the realist in me sees the enormity of the problems facing Britain and I would contest Britain’s collective “Frame” is amongst the weakest. Maybe this is a good thing. You can’t make an omelette without…

    1. I agree that England is particularly weak, Scotland even more so. They are well down the path of PC madness. It is strange but the Anglo-Saxon countries, Great Britain, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, all seem to be the most vulnerable to this PC infestation. I wonder why that is.

    I think it is the interlinking schooling and later Academic systems. I think it goes back to the 1870s in England, was originally the liberal inspired and after the first world war the cultural Marxist progression spread throughout the commonwealth and across the Atlantic. I think it accelerated under Blair and then 3rd wave feminism. The decline in educational outcomes recorded in the PISA comparisons might demonstrate this. The creation of modern education out of local parish based schooling might impact on the decline of the empire and the rise of modern socialist western public sector/state particularly after selection by ability was replaced by post code or home ownership.

  9. Which country do you plan to set foot in? If you really want to live in a place still clean, enjoyable and European it has to be Central Europe (check Visegrad Group) or Eastern Europe but that area has its own issues regarding corruption, economic weaknesses, etc… Perhaps Ireland is worth the try too.

    Central Europe, Slovakia for example, would be the sweet spot.

    …or, if you want to join us in our struggle against globalism, Spain, Britain, France, etc. The climate in parts of Spain, Italy and France is actually similar to Australia’s which helps in the adaptation.

    It’s not like we wouldn’t welcome you.

    1. I see you translated my piece into Spanish. Thanks for doing that.

      I previously lived in Italy for 10 years but this time I am off to Holland as my wife is Dutch. Shame about the weather but I like Holland very much.

      1. Many Europeans are thinking about leaving for greener (actually whiter) pastures. Names like South Brazil, New Zealand, Russia or Australia come up most of the times.

        Your piece, about doing just the opposite, is inspirational; we have a lot to defend, to preserve, to pass down the generations.

        We just can’t ignore what our forefathers did and leaving it behind so others could enjoy and destroy it.
