Summarizing the costs to the West of seeking to equalize nonwhites with whites
When one thinks about how much we have spent on transfer payments of all sorts and the cost of artificially advancing incompetent and dysfunctional minorities, I don’t think it is a stretch to say it has resulted in the collapse of our economy and society.LA replies:
But the last also happened in the Roman empire.

And most importantly like the Roman empire we have more and more people in our military who feel they owe more allegiance to their own religion (Nidal Hassan) racial group (militant blacks) or country of origin (think most of Latin America). The fast track ticket to citizenship for a lot of aliens to my understanding, is a stint in the military. I am not saying there are tons of traitorous fifth columnists in the military. But compared to just 30 years ago it is quite disturbing. Kenneth Clark made a fabulous TV series called Civilization which I highly recommend. In it he said something that always stuck with me regarding the Roman empire. He said that the though reasons for the fall of Rome were numerous, one could say that it simply became “exhausted”. It simply could not continue to exist in its current form. It reminded me of America today in its current Liberal form. Liberalism is simply exhausting .
