The Breakdown of the Extended Order

The Breakdown of the Extended Order

It is the breakdown of our “extended order” – in other words Western civilisation rooted (whether one likes it or not) in the “symbolic truths” of Judeo-Christianity – that we are witnessing today in France. This breakdown was caused by the secularisation of Western Europe, which led to a demographic implosion because people no longer wished to be “fruitful” and to “multiply.” Secularisation has left both a religious and a demographic vacuum in Europe. This vacuum is being filled by a new people and a new religion. The latter religion, being of a more fatalistic kind (as it is originally the religion of a desert people), is less inclined to “replenish the earth and subdue it” because it accepts that the existing world is “the will of Allah” (Inch'Allah). Islam is on the rise in Europe. According to some this is exactly the reason why its faithful are rioting, but the Muslims cannot be blamed for Old Europe’s problems. These are completely self-inflicted. Islam is not the cause but the consequence of the problems.

Allons Enfants de la Jihad

I have pointed out before that multiculturalism cannot exist, except as several cultures living side by side in defined territories, where the laws of one culture do not apply in the territories of the others. It is easy to understand why the “youths” in the suburbs turned so violent when Sarkozy announced that he was going to establish law and order there. The “youths” have held sway there, unchallenged, for years. If they allow the French authorities to reassert their authority, they lose their power base. The police and the gangs are fighting over whose laws will apply in the neighbourhood: the laws of the French Republic or the laws of Eurabia. Unlike the Western intellectuals, the “youths” realise that everything boils down to the question of who wields power over a specific territory. In order to protect their turf the generals of Eurabia are now attacking the territory of the enemy, such as a psychiatric hospital in the town of mayor Pajon.

The point of "multiculturalism" though is not to give favors to minority cultures but to use the presence of minority cultures and the dogma of equality to disrupt and suppress the local inherited dominant culture. The response of the French authorities and mainstream journalists to the riots reflects such an understanding of multiculturalism: the problem, they say, is that the "youths" haven't been integrated into the overall rational system of production and consumption, partly because the authorities haven't done enough, they haven't asserted their supremacy over all social relations with sufficient vigor, and partly because too many of the older things that once made up France have been permitted to survive. The solution, it is said, is therefore forcible therapy -- help the "youths" integrate, and destroy the old French particularities ("bigotries") that interfere with that integration. The youths are thus in effect acting as shock troops in a continuing revolution carried out by European elites against their own people. That is the fundamental reason the riots have not been suppressed.

How ironic that the liberal version of "tolerance" and "diversity" should run with open arms into the jaws of Islamic intolerance and conformity! Christian tolerance and diversity will one day be only a fond memory.

This is incorrect.  The cause of the problem is not secularism, but socialism.  Socialism promises things like old-age pensions, without asking (let alone rewarding people) for the necessary elements for this to be done:  a sufficiently numerous, educated and productive next generation.
