Huxley wrote of the effects of class and technology and Orwell wrote of omnipresent government control. Raspail, in a 1973 book, wrote of the demise of a weary and guilt ridden Western Civilization and the swamping of the white race by third world immigrants. Unfortunately Raspail's book is so accurate that it scared the living bejeebers out of me. Oh sure Orwell and Huxley had accurate warnings of possible future human calamities, but Raspail described what is happening today to the tiniest detail.
How can anyone have been so accurate? It's almost unbelievable. While Raspail didn't use the term "social justice warriors," the work of these people is seen as a key to the loss of our culture. He has the Pope as a social activist and mentions that the World Council of Churches. Raspail has the liberal media continuously pecking away at western values and promoting racial guilt. Things become so bad that police officers really do little to enforce laws and norms are weakened more and more. The military is soft and more concerned with social issues than defense. More and more the media grind away at social and economic inequality. More white guilt. And on it goes. Previous third world immigrants are shown as mostly invisible to white Europe but are seething, in Raspail's words, with envy and hate. At the first chance, they join with the new third world immigrants, and European culture is forever changed and the white race is lost.
Horror comes at the end of the book as a motley group of 20 or so whites who are still defending the south coast of France are killed in a bombing raid by the new multi-racial government. A document is later found noting the 20 had fought and killed some hundreds of "ganges' and "fellow travelers." Raspail's point is to show how easy it would have been for Europeans to defend themselves had there been any remaining will or belief in the West of its institutions.
Looking at current events and reading Raspail is beyond unsettling. How could anyone see this coming so clearly from 44 years ago? I mean no hyperbola but Raspail provides the most terrifying book I have ever read.
