The new hedonism seems unable to give people a reason to go on living. Its earliest fruits appear to be poisonous. Will this new “liberating” culture that our young have so enthusiastically embraced prove the deadliest carcinogen of them all? And if the West is in the grip of a “culture of death,” as the pope contends and the statistics seem to show, is Western civilization about to follow Lenin’s empire to the same inglorious end? I agree with some of Buchanan’s positions, namely that the federal government interferes far too much in affairs that should be handled by state and local governments and that the U.S. is involved in far too many conflicts abroad. I also agree that the United States as we know it is unlikely to survive too far into the future. We are continually separating into more like-minded communities within a country more divided than at any time since the Civil War. Buchanan laments the federal imposition of progressive values on the entire country, but then turns around and seems to want federally funded public schools to impose his set of values instead. He wavers between wanting state and local determination of values and wanting the leftist values currently imposed from on high to simply be changed to “traditional” values. When he gets on his pro-America rants, he is just as dogmatic as the Marxists and progressives that he hates. ANY imposition of a particular set of values by the American federal government is immoral and unconstitutional, whether it is rabidly pro-American or anti-American. BRICS; China; India; geopolitical marginalization; low fertility; population ageing; population decline. In some instances, the money has been spent buying log burners for properties owned by the king and rented out by his estate, or to pay surveyor, planning or architecture fees. A garden wall on a farm in Lancashire has been identified as eligible for an upgrade using bona vacantia.

It is this: America has undergone a cultural and social revolution. We are not the same country that we were in 1970 or even 1980. We are not the same people. After the 2000 election, pollster William McInturf told the Washington Post: “We have two massive colliding forces. One is rural, Christian, religiously conservative. [The other] is socially tolerant, pro-choice, secular, living in New England and the Pacific Coast...” The agony of the West has arrived. In a world where Christianity hardly prospers any more than in South America, we are condemned to wait, in Europe, for our eventual salvation from Providence alone. In 1960, only sixteen million Americans did not trace their ancestors to Europe. Today, the number is eighty million. No nation has ever undergone so rapid and radical a transformation. At Portland State in 1998, Mr. Clinton rhapsodized to a cheering student audience about a day when Americans of European descent will be a minority. I went into this knowing next to nothing about the author. I have to round up to 5 stars simply because his conclusions were so accurate–conclusions he made 20 years ago that are possibly more relevant now than ever. What doe these incidents tell us? That those who loudly preach diversity often do not practice it, that those who decry intolerance may be found among the most intolerant. Like the Taliban and the Great Buddhas of Bamiyan, our cultural revolution intends to tear down all the flags and statues of the old America that it abhors. And it will hear no appeal. Whether a state chooses to honor Dr. King or Robert E Lee should be a decision for its own people. No stigma should attach to any state that chooses to honor one, both, or neither. But that is unacceptable."Patrice Guillamaud, philosopher, author notably of Joy and Hope (Cerf, 2019) and The nation (Kime, 2022). It took some time (unlike Mr. Buchanan, I am a child of the time, even being born to married parents and raised going to an Orthodox Church every Sunday, it wasn't sufficient to keep the reek of culture off. I left Christianity for many years. That's another long story). I tumbled towards the right, moving away from almost literally every single person I grew up, and it wasn't really fun. It was hard. It was hard always being the person who didn't fit in, castigated by the very people who preached being myself and achieving my dreams and all the rest. But isn't that always the way? The author’s name itself adds authenticity to the entire thing. It wasn’t written by some fringe “far right” personality but Pat Buchanan, former presidential candidate and senior advisor to three American presidents.

The painting was originally exhibited at the Royal Academy in London. It was presented to Canada in 1921 as a tribute for its service in the First World War. [7] In 1960, people of European ancestry were one-fourth of the world's population; in 2000, they were one-sixth; in 2050, they will be one-tenth."

There is no evidence that any of the figures surrounding Wolfe in the painting were actually present at his death. All of them were senior military figures and would have been busy elsewhere in battle because Wolfe died at the height of the battle itself and not afterward. [11] However, West's choice to show Wolfe's death in the figurative manner of a dying martyr, many comparing it to Christ, transforms Wolfe's death from a simple casualty of war to one of a hero that symbolized the British cause. [16] Contemporary response [ edit ] Early feminists had been fiercely antiabortion. Elizabeth Cady Stanton, organized of the first women's rights convention in 1848, called abortion "a disgusting and degrading crime"...And Susan B. Anthony, early crusader for the women's vote, wrote that 'No matter what the motive...the woman is awfully guilty who commits the deed. It will burden her conscience in life; it will burden her soul in death." It was in fact the 19th century feminists who campaigned to pass the laws that criminalized abortion."

Conservatives, he said, seemingly never read Mao Tse0tung on waging cultural war against the west. Mao's essays were prescribed reading for the Herbert Marcuse-generation of the 1960s, who now run our cultural institutions...Conservatives were oblivious to the fact that...modern art- long separated from the idealism of Manet, Degas, Cezanne and Rodin- had become the purveyor of a destructive, degenerate, ugly, pornographic, Marxist, anti-American ideology." This is probably the best written and laid out explanation I’ve ever read on why western civilization as we know it will almost certainly cease to exist in a few generations. There’s nothing radical or unoptical here, just facts. I plan on loaning this book out to as many people as I can get to read it. Fargo, Jason (25 November 2020). "The Myth of North America, in One Painting". The New York Times . Retrieved 11 December 2020.Sleep was not the only reason given for childlessness, however. A survey of Italian women between the ages of sixteen and twenty-four conducted by Noi Donne concluded that 52% of these women planned to have no children and that "career" was their main reason. (Ibid., Italy, a Theme Park). All this was neatly conceptualized and announced. The decline of the West was certainly particularly slow, no doubt in proportion to the glory and prosperity of the West itself, but its inevitability did not further need to be demonstrated. America is God’s Crucible, the great Melting-Pot where all the races of Europe are melting and reforming,” wrote Israel Zangwill, the Russian-Jewish playwright, in his famous 1908 play The Melting Pot. But the immigration tsunami rolling over America is not coming from “all the races of Europe.” The largest population transfer in history is coming from all the races of Asia, Africa, and Latin America, and they are not “melting and reforming.” Only a social counterrevolution or a religious awakening can turn the West around before a falling birthrate closes off the last exit ramp and rings down the curtain on Western Man's long-running play. But not a sign of either can be seen on the horizon."
