Since the inception of the western world, the most well-documented, powerful, and prosperous segment of the world in the history of the human species, there has been unprecedented growth and advancement in every facet of life. Historically, this has never come without its challenges, and the western world has consistently faced a myriad of challenges to its continued overall development and economic expansion. In the Middle Ages, the major obstacle was overcoming the Dark Ages, the Bubonic Plague, and consolidating agricultural technology. In the Renaissance Era, it was exploration and colonization of the New World, and solidifying cultural survival in the face of encroachment by the Ottoman Empire. In the 19th century, it was the advancement of education and scientific discovery in the wake of the Enlightenment period. In the early 20th century, it was the fight for women’s suffrage and inclusion in the workplace. In the late 20th century, it was the attainment of legal equality of the races, especially in America, in the face of Jim Crow laws and legal discrimination in public spaces. However, it is not the challenges of the past which should be the primary concern, but rather the challenges which lie in the near and distant future. In the present day, the unique bastion of liberty, happiness, prosperity, and civilization that is the western world faces its next great challenge.
Over the past few decades, the United States and Europe have been subject to the cumbersome and daunting task of facing their next great tribulation; demographic assault, and cultural clashing. Much of the source of this cultural clash, and by extension demographic clash, can be attributed to the mass, unchecked Islamic migration into western countries, especially into Europe. Though what is left of the established political class of Europe insist that there is nothing to worry about concerning this migration, the simple fact is that a slew of major issues have arisen as a result of the trickle into Europe thus far. The crisis has spiraled into such extremes that it threatens to envelope the entire west into culture war — in some cases, perhaps with its own citizens.
To reiterate, the source of the culture clash which is now manifesting itself is the cultures which are migrating into the west, particularly those influenced by the religion of Islam. The views and customs of the Islamic cultures migrating into Europe are simply incompatible with the fair and democratic values of the native Europeans. For instance, in eleven Islamic nations, it is still legal to execute homosexuals found guilty of sodomy. This is a popular policy with the Muslims living in the west, as 48% of British Muslims surveyed in one poll thought that homosexuality should be criminalized in Britain. In the west, the practice of killing or imprisoning openly gay people was abolished ages ago. In several Islamic countries, female genital mutilation of the clitoris is an accepted and even revered cultural practice, whereas in Europe this horror is seen for what it truly is; the senseless robbery of a sexual component from women’s bodies. Furthermore, women’s suffrage and even a woman’s right to drive are not guaranteed in much of the Islamic world, whereas these concepts are and have been universally implemented in the western world for decades. Many people see these facts and respond by attacking Christianity for its own historical misdeeds. However, it is important to remember that Christianity is not consulted in the law codes of any nation except Uganda, while up to twenty or so countries exist which use Islam to influence policy and codified laws. The Crusades, alas, do not make the systemic enslavement of women in Saudi Arabia permissible.
These polarizing cultural differences have, as one might readily assume, made it extremely difficult to assimilate and integrate Muslim migrants into European cultures. Worse, most European nations are not even trying to assimilate their migrants, such as Sweden, Belgium, and The Netherlands. This lack of assimilation has caused an exponential increase in crime rates in most of Europe, with an emphasis on rape, theft, and murder rates. However, many European nations have been slow to respond to these ugly truths, due to the perceived economic benefits of these migrants. As Europe civilized, incentive to have a large family faded, and the birthrates declined as a result. As such, European politicians and governments have sought to stabilize their populations by importing large third-world underclasses from Arabia and North Africa. In turn, this has caused and will continue to cause increasing amounts of demographic and ethnic clashing in European countries. To the native Europeans, this is a ghastly crime like no other; demographic replacement of them with people from far-flung places with no historical or ancestral ties to the land. To the migrants, this is both a holy and cultural victory; they will be able to secure a future for their posterity and their religion by breeding out the milquetoast, infertile indigenous Europeans. It does not take a genius to see how these opposing viewpoints can lead to violence from both sides very quickly.
In its long, winding history, the western world has thoroughly proven itself to be an ever-progressing land of innovation, rich cultural heritage, acceptance of ethnic and racial minorities, and freedom. Consistently in the history of Europe and America, these values have faced setbacks and outright threats to continuation. However, Europe always has persevered, and America always has thrived in the face of great challenges to their shared values. In its next trial, the impending culture war with Islam, Europe and the west in general will again show itself to be proud, strong, and protective of its people and heritage. It can do no different if it expects to survive as a cultural and economic institution. For, as the above picture clearly states: “You cannot coexist with people who want to kill you.”
