A Scared New World

At the beginning of the 20th century, the world saw the collapse of long established orders. By the end of WW1, we saw the collapse of

1. Monarchies
2. Colonialism
3. Europe as a focal point
4. Communication delays and isolation

In 2018, a century after the armistice, we are also seeing the collapse of long established orders

My List:

1. Elitist Inbreeding in Leadership
2. Mass Media
3. The West as a Focal Point
4. Public Education Model of Levels and degrees
5. Collapse of the Gatekeepers

What is your list? What is your take on the ground shifting beneath our feet?

  1. I’d add the defenestration of “journalists” and the collapse of local government.   The internet enabled your 2, 4, and 5.  We need to keep the gummint’s hands off the web.

    Defenestration is easy and fun, but it’s out of stock at the moment:
    Amazon.com: defenestration
    Temporarily out of stock. Order now and we’ll deliver when available. More Buying Choices. $4.34

    (Your mayor Wheeler colluded with the Antifa mob in PDX instead of protecting ICE employees and the general citizenry.  The FBI should have arrested him and then promptly routed/arrested the blackshirts.)

    The landscape of intelligence

    For the last 300,000 years or so, Homo sapiens has been the most intelligent species on Earth, and has leveraged that intelligence and the accumulated knowledge it has won into effective hegemony over the planet.  Some time between the start of the Roaring Twenties and the mid-century mark, this is likely to change.  Barring catastrophe, by the end of Roaring Twenties the map will look very different,

    World population by continent: 1950–2100

    Steve Sailer calls this the World’s Most Important Graph.  This is not some crackpot fear-mongering, but a plot of data from the United Nations 2017 Revision of World Population Prospects.  Almost nobody is talking or thinking about the implications of this.

  3. That “barring catastrophe” qualification is problematic.  That sort of population growth in sub-Saharan Africa is likely to produce catastrophes aplenty — famine, war, pestilence, genocide — that will bend the trend downward.  It won’t be pretty, that’s for sure.

    If that trajectory continues only as far as 2050 (and unless one of the catastrophes you cited happens, that’s the way to bet, since the parents of the 2 billion are already alive), I believe we will see one (or both) of the following:

    • A human migration completely unprecedented in history and catastrophic for Europe and any other country on the receiving end or,
    • Steps, unprecedented in history, taken to prevent that migration from occurring.

    We’re talking about something that makes Le Camp des Saints look like a page 17 story.

    Nope I have been interested in this since America Alone came out. Demographics are my hobby.

  6. The key is Will.  National Will.  Don’t moan and whine, act.  There is nothing stopping the West from remaining top dog but social justice and moaning.   We could stop a migration cold with enough will.
