“In our time all Greece was visited by a dearth of children and generally a decay of population, owing to which the cities were denuded of inhabitants, and a failure of productiveness resulted, though there were no long-continued wars or serious pestilences among us…. For this evil grew upon us rapidly, and without attracting attention, by our men becoming perverted to a passion for show and money and the pleasures of an idle life, and accordingly either not marrying at all, or, if they did marry, refusing to rear the children that were born, or at most one or two out of a great number, for the sake of leaving them well off or bringing them up in extravagant luxury.”-Polybius, The Histories

“Soon religious wars will break out in Europe. You are taking Europe toward an abyss. That’s the way it’s going.”-Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu

After World War II, Germany made the terrible mistake of importing hundreds of thousands of Turkish migrant workers who proved to be neither migrants as they ultimately stuck around nor worked, as the Turkish population to this day has an unemployment rate three times that of the native Germans. With at least half a century of proof that, as even Reuters acknowledges, the Turks remain Germany’s least-integrated minority, Angela Merkel decided to recklessly “invite” millions more unassimilable “migrants” (86% of whom are Islamic) into Deutschland starting in 2015, dramatically accelerating and expanding a process that had quietly been occurring for some years prior. The justification has been a thin and convoluted mixture of apologism, economic necessity, and compassion for the global downtrodden. The results have been predictably disastrous for a continent that’s ill-equipped for such an influx, particularly of the violent and unassimilable variety that’s flooded Europe in increasing numbers. Such a population group would be a challenge for anyone, as we’ve seen regardless of the context.

According to Germany’s own 2017 crime statistics, more than 1,100 foreigners were charged with murder or manslaughter, as opposed to around 1,500 Germans. In 2016 the numbers were: 1,137 foreigners charged with homicides compared to 1,638 Germans. Regarding violent crimes, in 2017 police charged 69,163 foreigners compared to 112,346 Germans. In 2016, the government reported 67,869 foreigners committed violent crimes compared to 110,494 Germans. Keep in mind native Germans out-number foreigners at least 7-to-1.

More than 90 percent of the 10.4 percent increase in reported violent crimes was attributed to young male migrants in Germany’s southern state of Lower Saxony, according to a new study from the Zurich University of Applied Sciences. North Africans were overrepresented by over 1,600%! Nationally, German victims of immigrant crime hit a new high in 2017, rising 23.7% in one year. Keep in mind these are just the recorded numbers. Regarding the recent savage rape and murder of young Susanna Maria Feldman by “migrant” Iraqi Kurd Ali Bashar, AfD co-leader Alice Weidel said:

Susanna is dead. Maria from Freiburg; Mia from Kandel; Mireille from Flensburg; and now Susanna from Mainz...Susanna’s death is not a blind stroke of fate. Susanna’s death is the result of many years of organized irresponsibility and the scandalous failure of our asylum and immigration policies. Susanna is victim of an out-of-control leftwing multicultural ideology that stops at nothing to impose its sense of moral superiority. Susanna is also another victim of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s hypocritical and selfish welcome policy. Legally, Ali Bashar should never have been allowed into Germany. His asylum request was rejected more than two years ago, and he should have been deported. Bashar was known to police for physical assault, attacking police officers, and possessing illegal weapons. In March 2018, he was suspected of raping an 11-year-old girl at a refugee shelter. According to the law, Bashar should have had to leave Germany a long time ago or be arrested. An absurd asylum law and a grotesque asylum is lenient toward asylum cheaters and criminals but ignores the genuine concerns of German citizens.

Ali Bashar, his parents and five siblings lived here on the taxpayer’s dime, they could not be deported, but after his Ali’s crime, they somehow found the money to flee Germany on falsified documents. No problem in a Germany with open borders. On the day of Susanna’s murder, you [Merkel] testified in parliament that you have handled the migrant crisis responsibly. Do you dare to repeat that claim to Susanna’s parents? Well, no. Your hard-heartedness and self-righteousness means you feel you are above offering the victims of your policies a personal word. This is unacceptable to us citizens. Will you finally accept responsibility, Mrs. Merkel? You and your entire cabinet should resign to make possible another asylum policy so that the parents in this country no longer need to fear for the safety of their children.

Weidel is not being hyperbolic. The situation is out of control not just in Germany, but across much of the rest of the continent. Sweden had to shut down its largest annual music festival due to rampant sexual assaults committed by “migrants.” Nineteen women are raped daily in the Nordic country. The Rinkeby subway station in Stockholm, Sweden was recently categorized as a place too dangerous to work without a police escort due to the security risk created by “migrant” gangs. In 2016, 15.6 percent of people suffered one or more offences against the person (defined in the survey as assault, threats, sexual offences, robbery, fraud or harassment), and the numbers continue to rise. The British and Canadian foreign ministries have even issued travel warnings for Sweden.

In Denmark, Lebanese and Palestinian men have, at 257, the highest crime-index among the studied populations in the country; the index is standardized by both age and socioeconomic status. Men from the former Yugoslavia and men from Somalia, Turkey, Pakistan, and Morocco also have high crime-indexes, from 187 to 205, which translates to about double the national crime rate average. The lowest crime index is recorded among immigrants and descendants originating from the United States with a crime rate index at 32.

In Norway, first-generation African immigrants/”migrants” are three times more likely than native Norwegians to be convicted of a felony, with Somalis the worst offenders at 4.4 times more likely to be convicted of a felony than a native Norwegian. Iraqis and Pakistanis have rates of conviction for felonies greater than native Norwegians by factors of 3 and 2.6, respectively. Interestingly, second-generation African and Asian immigrants have a higher rate of convictions for felonies than first-generation immigrants. First-generation African immigrants have conviction rates for felonies of 16.7 per 1,000 individuals over the age of 15, whereas for second-generation immigrants the rate is 28 per 1,000—an increase of over 60%. For Asians there is an increase from 9.3 per 1,000 to 17.1 per 1,000. In 2010, it was reported that first generation immigrants are over-represented by a factor of 1.7 for sex crimes.

In Finland, individuals of foreign origin represent about 6% of the population, yet they account for 24% of the country’s rapes. 80% of “migrants’” sexual assaults are perpetrated against Finnish women, with about half of those being minors. The assailants’ countries of origins were Iraq, Somalia, Iran, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, Morocco, Syria, and Algeria.

In Italy, a 2013 report stated that “immigrants accounted for almost 23 percent of the criminal charges although they represented only 6‐7 percent of the resident population” at that time. In the Netherlands, almost one-in-five individuals of a foreign background between the ages of 18-24 have been investigated for crimes, and in a report published in 2009, 63% of all teenagers arrested for a serious crime had a foreign background. Foreigners in Spain are twice as likely as native Spaniards to commit a crime. Non-Swiss nationals are nearly three times as likely to find themselves in prison, and asylum seekers are at least fourteen times more likely than native Swiss to be arrested. Angolans, Nigerians, and Algerians all have crimes rates multiples higher than those of the native Swiss. In Cyprus, at the most extreme end—and a harbinger of things to come if we do not defend our nations from this invasion—Turkey remains committed to the ethnic cleansing of Greek Cypriots and the European Union and the United Nations say nothing.

Distressingly, just as Italy’s new government began refusing to allow migrant vessels to dock, Spain’s communist prime minister okayed their acceptance. When one country wakes up, another falls back asleep, it seems. As Soeren Kern reports:

In France, the government, which previously vowed to reduce foreign influences on the practice of Islam in the country, approved visas for 300 imams from Algeria and Morocco to lead Ramadan services in French mosques.

Similarly, instead of following Austria’s lead and expelling radical imams and closing down radical mosques, Switzerland instead prefers its own “don’t ask, don’t tell” of radicalization. Anti-Western mosques operate unimpeded, and we know the mosque is the forward operating base of any program of Islamization. Judith Bergman reports:

Several experts have pointed out the foreign Muslim networks at work in Switzerland. In 2016, Reinhard Schulze, professor of Islamic Studies at the University of Bern, pointed out that donations from the Muslim World League, based in Saudi Arabia, and other funds from Saudi Arabia were flowing to “those mosques and organizations that are open to the Wahhabi tradition.” Another expert on Islam in Switzerland, Saïda Keller-Messahli, has spoken and written widely on how “Huge sums of money from Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Kuwait and Turkey are flowing to Switzerland,” and how the Saudi-based Muslim World League is behind “a whole network of radically-oriented mosques in Switzerland...with the clear intention of spreading Salafist thought here.”

This is a long-standing Wahhabi practice; Saudi Arabia has been funding radical mosques across Europe from the UK to Bulgaria, from France to Russia for decades, as well as funding NGOs with direct ties to extremist activity. In 1994, Saudi donations to Islamic NGOs in Bosnia totaled $150 million. From WikiLeaks:

In Bulgaria, Taiba (Taibah), supported by donations from Saudi Arabia, was registered in 1995 as a successor to two NGOs (Dar al-Irshad and Al Waqf al-Islamiyya) which were closed in 1994 for supporting Islamic extremism. Bulgarian security services report that the organization’s objective is to radicalize Bulgaria’s Muslim population, in part by encouraging central institutions such as the Muftiship to become financially dependent on its contributions. The founder of Taiba, Abdurahman Takan, was expelled from Bulgaria for illegally preaching against the state.

Hungary witnessed the number of migrants illegally crossing into the country fall from over six thousand to twenty-nine in one week

As Lawrence A. Franklin writes:

Dagestan, the largest republic of the north Caucasus, can best be described in negative superlatives. It is probably the most violent spot in the entire Russian Federation. The administrative bureaucracy of the republic’s capital, Makhachkala, is among the most corrupt. The ethnic and linguistic diversity of Dagestan is the most complex among Russia’s Republics… Religiously, it is also the most radical Muslim entity in the Russian state… This Salafist ascendency has been fueled, allegedly, by Arabian Gulf states’ financial support for mosque construction and the hiring of fundamentalist imams as preachers throughout the Caucasian republics. However, the scholarships for Dagestani youth to study in Saudi Arabia have been particularly effective in the Wahabbization of Islam in Dagestan. Riyadh’s largesse has helped accelerate the radicalization of the republic’s Muslims.

The United Nations 2017 world population prospects predicts 2.5 billion inhabitants on the African continent by 2050

It doesn’t have to be this way. After the completion of their wall, Hungary witnessed the number of migrants illegally crossing into the country fall from over six thousand to twenty-nine in one week. Bulgaria built themselves a tidy 167-mile wall with Turkey to discourage migrants from entering a country that’s no stranger to Islamic privations within its borders, to say nothing of the centuries-long Ottoman/Turkish occupation. As Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban rightly stated, “Hungary does not need a single migrant for the economy to work, or the population to sustain itself, or for the country to have a future.” Indeed, the nations that continue this suicidal practice of welcoming whoever washes up on shore—or whomever the NGOs ferry across the Mediterranean—will not have a future. There is precious little separating Europe from an African continent that is projected to have over four billion, possibly as high as five billion, people by the end of the century, to say nothing of the five hundred million-plus potential migrants from the Middle East.


Since 2010, Syria has witnessed a 536% explosion in emigration; South Sudan is at 334%, the Central African Republic 204%, Sao Tome and Principe 167%, Eritrea 119%, Namibia 90%, Rwanda 73%, Botswana 70%, Sudan 63%, and Burundi 55%. In 2017, about 5.2 million North African immigrants lived in the EU countries, Norway, and Switzerland. The total number of emigrants worldwide from all sub-Saharan African countries combined grew by 31% between 2010 and 2017; the Middle East-North Africa region saw a larger increase (39%) of people living outside of their birth country during the same span. The scariest part is that all of this has simply been a drop in the bucket in terms of the global population explosion. The United Nations 2017 world population prospects predicts 2.5 billion inhabitants on the African continent by 2050, with many countries’ populations tripling or quadrupling in that time frame.

Due to high infant mortality and the fact that about one-in-fifty women died in childbirth, pre-industrial populations would need to have five or six children per woman. But, with the advent of Western medicine, this is no longer necessary. In Africa, people have access to many of these medical advancements, but still have children at a pre-industrial rate, thus explaining the population explosion underway. In Muslim societies and many other non-Muslim African tribes, polygamy is standard practice, which accelerates the population, but at the expense of higher-investment parenting. The average person’s age in some of these countries demands significant attention:

  • Niger: 15.3 years of age
  • Uganda: 15.7 years of age
  • Mali: 16.2 years of age
  • Malawi: 16.5 years of age
  • Zambia: 16.7 years of age
  • Burundi: 17
  • South Sudan: 17.1
  • Burkina Faso: 17.2
  • Chad: 17.6
  • Tanzania: 17.6
  • Ethiopia: 17.8
  • Somalia: 17.9

Contrast this with the developed world:

  • Japan: 46.9 years of age
  • Germany: 46.8 years of age
  • Italy: 45.1 years of age
  • Spain: 42.3 years of age
  • Canada: 42 years of age
  • South Korea: 41.2
  • France: 41.2
  • The United Kingdom: 40.5
  • Taiwan: 40.2
  • Australia: 38.6
  • The United States of America: 37.9
  • New Zealand: 37.8

In the Zero Migration projection by Pew Research, the Muslim population in Europe will have grown 39% by 2050 with a 10% decline in the continent’s non-Muslim population, a scenario which would have profound ramifications on the life and culture of the continent as we know it—and this is assuming not a single more “migrant” set foot on the continent. We all know this is not going to happen. In the Medium Migration scenario from Pew Research, the Muslim share of the population would grow 125%, and in the High Migration scenario, 193%. Turkish dictator Recep Erdogan is publicly urging all Muslims engaged in the hijrah in Europe to have at least five children, echoing Norwegian imam Mullah Krekar’s sentiment that the key to victory lies in the wombs of Muslim women, and that the Mohammedans must “breed like mosquitoes.”


Of the top forty countries with the highest birth-rates, only three—Iraq, Afghanistan, and East Timor—are not in sub-Saharan Africa, and most of the rest of the high birth rate populations are either in Latin America or the Muslim world. Here are just some of the countries whose populations are set to triple or quadruple in the coming decades: Niger (leading the charge at 7.153 live births per woman per the updated 2018 figures published by the World Population Review), Somalia, Chad, Mali, Angola, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Nigeria, Mozambique, Tanzania, Malawi, and many more. By contrast, most of the nations with the lowest birth-rates are located in European or East Asia. A sample, as of June 2018:

Country Birth Rate
1.659 children per woman
1.657 children per woman
1.638 children per woman
1.635 children per woman
1.621 children per woman
Serbia 1.62 children per woman
Armenia 1.601 children per woman
Luxembourg 1.594 children per woman
Bulgaria 1.584 children per woman
Latvia 1.57 children per woman
Czech Republic 1.566 children per woman
Canada 1.563 children per woman
Ukraine 1.557 children per woman
Switzerland 1.549 children per woman
Macedonia 1.546 children per woman
Romania 1.54 children per woman
Austria 1.511 children per woman
Italy 1.491 children per woman
Japan 1.478 children per woman
Malta 1.475 children per woman
Germany 1.47 children per woman
Puerto Rico 1.47 children per woman
Slovakia 1.462 children per woman
Thailand 1.458 children per woman
Croatia 1.446 children per woman
Saint Lucia 1.444 children per woman
Mauritius 1.433 children per woman
Hungary 1.397 children per woman
Spain 1.391 children per woman
Bosnia & Herz. 1.386 children per woman
Macau 1.347 children per woman
Cyprus 1.337 children per woman
Hong Kong 1.326 children per woman
South Korea 1.323 children per woman
Greece 1.302 children per woman
Poland 1.29 children per woman

Populations that remain stuck at sub-replacement-level typically bottom-out and almost never recover.

They either die out or are swallowed up by other population groups. Immigration of foreign peoples is very clearly not the solution. As Dio (Cassius, not Ronnie James) recounts Augustus’s speech to an assembly of Roman patricians:

We liberate slaves chiefly for the purpose of making out of them as many citizens as possible. We give our allies a share in the government that our numbers may increase; yet you, Romans of the original stock, including Quintii, Valerii, Iulii, are eager that your families and names at once shall perish with you.

The situation in contemporary Europe is particularly dire:

The Polish Health ministry has released a video to encourage its citizens to start ‘breeding like rabbits’. Poland has one of the lowest birth rates in Europe and it’s resulting in severe population decline. In 2015 the rate was at 1.32 children per woman, with only Portugal having a lower figure [among EU countries], while Spain and Greece were almost the same. While this campaign was seen as very subtle, Europe’s declining populations have been tackled before. A Danish travel agency was a little more direct with an advert which went viral, asking would-be grandparents to pay for a holiday for their children so that they are more likely to get grandchildren. It was credited for the births of an extra 1200 babies. But efforts haven’t always gone to plan. In Italy, a government campaign to combat infertility stumbled when people took to the streets to protest an ad campaign for a ‘fertility day’, which was denounced as sexist, racist and ignorant of the economic reasons why Italians aren’t having babies. And in Russia, the decline in population has been high on the agenda since the breakup of the Soviet Union. Between 1992 and 2009, the country lost about six million people, or four percent of its population. In an attempt to combat this, Vladimir Putin introduced schemes to give extra cash to people when they have their second and third children. And if you have seven or more children you get invited to the Kremlin to receive a medal.

we have on our hands a recipe for total civilizational disaster.

Two-thirds of Belarusian couples have just one child, and like its neighbors, Belarus is rapidly losing population due to a confluence of low birth rates and high emigration; additionally there is a decade-wide gap between the life expectancies of men (67 years) and women (77 years). In 2030, the population is expected to be a full million less than it is now, a loss of one person every thirty-seven minutes. Russia and the Ukraine have similar issues, with women outliving men by an average of ten years; this is such an extreme disparity in Russia in particular that there are 10.5 million more women than men. Additionally, both countries have higher death rates than birth rates, and once again factoring in emigration, Russia has a net loss of one person every twenty-six minutes, and the Ukraine has a staggering net loss of one person every two minutes.

Romania experiences a net population decrease of one person every five minutes, and Bulgaria experiences a net population decrease of one person every eleven minutes. Romania currently has 19.4 million people but is projected to have just 15.3 million in 2060. Bulgaria had a population of nine million in 1986, and now has less than six. Along with Latvia, it is the only country in the world with a lower population now than it had in 1950. Aldis Austers, chairman of the European Latvians’ Association, said, “We have a joke that in 2030 the last Latvians can switch off the lights at the Riga airport.” The Baltic region has lost one-fifth of its population since the fall of the Soviet Union, making it one of the most rapidly de-populating areas of the world. Latvia loses about 30,000 people a year, mostly the young to emigration, and coupled with the disparity of births versus deaths equates to the net loss of one person every half hour. Estonia’s population was so devastated by World War II and the Soviet occupation that it just recently reached its pre-war population of ethnic Estonians (25% of the population is ethnically Russian); the total population has been in decline since the fall of the USSR, and is expected to decline from a little over 1.3 million at present to 1.1 million in 2030 to 860,000 in 2060. Lithuania’s population has gone from 3.7 million in 1992 to 2.9 million today to a projected 2.5 million in 2060. According to World Population Review, Serbia:

Has been in demographic crisis since the early 1990’s with a death rate that still exceeds its birth rate. Serbia... has one of the most negative population growth rates in the world, with one of the lowest fertility rates (currently just 1.62 children per woman). 1/5th of all households consist of just one person and Serbia has among the ten oldest populations in the world. Serbia had the largest refugee population in Europe just twenty years ago, accounting for 7.5% of its population. 300,000 people left the country in the ’90s, one-fifth of which had a higher education…Serbia has been struggling to overcome its population decline, even turning to singles nights, generous maternity leave and cash bonuses for new parents in some towns. Despite its best efforts, Serbia has been unable to reverse this trend, and its population is expected to continue its downward movement for many years.

In Croatia, the death rate has exceeded its birth rate since 1991, and its population has fallen from 4.7 million in that year to 4.1 million, and is expected to be 3.1 million by 2050. Moldova’s current population of just over four million is expected to be under three million by 2060; estimates range from a fifth to a quarter of Moldova’s population currently living abroad and, like most of the rest of Europe, its live births are outpaced by deaths and emigration. Slovakia’s population is due to decline by about half a million by mid-century, and a similar fate awaits Bosnia and Herzegovina, which already has 800,000 fewer people than in 1991.

Despite the entirety of Europe having sub-replacement-level birthrates, the ideal remains at least two children; for example, every country polled by the OECD—Italy, Estonia, Finland, Ireland, Latvia, Denmark, Cyprus, Sweden, Greece, Lithuania, Slovenia, France, Poland, Belgium, Luxembourg, the UK, the Netherlands, Hungary, Slovakia, Spain, Germany, Austria, Portugal, Malta, Romania, Bulgaria, and the Czech Republic—had an ideal family size of at least two children. Over 50% of Estonians polled and 46% of Finns had an ideal family size of three children. So there is obviously something preventing people from having more children. 40% of Swiss and German women with at least a college degree are currently childless, and the current child-bearing age of Austrians is on pace to numerically reduce itself by 70%. The results, coupled with mass immigration, would be nothing short of catastrophic, quite possibly apocalyptic. As I wrote in “Heart of Darkness”:

It’s not difficult to see where this is heading, nor will I be the first to point it out. Failed states, abominable living conditions, and the allure of the West and its bountiful entitlements…this is going to get ugly very quickly. For those unfamiliar with Tanzanian and Malawian culture, they sever the limbs of albinos to sell on the black market for witchcraft and other assorted spell-casting; in Mozambique, there’s been a rash of murders as bald men specifically, rumored to have gold in their heads, are having their skulls cracked open to find the hidden wealth. Talk about cultural enrichment! This is what much of the West has thrown its doors open to. Add to the high migrant birth rates and the dysfunction and degeneracy so many are incapable of leaving behind the non-existent native European birth stock's rates and a pervasive Eurowestern culture of guilt and defeatism, and we have on our hands a recipe for total civilizational disaster.

Which Way, Western Man?
