Part 3: THE WEST VS. THE REST
“Here is how they destroyed their countries,” Lamm said. “First, turn America into a bilingual or multi lingual and bicultural country. History shows that no nation can survive the tension, conflict and antagonism of two or more competing languages and cultures. It is a blessing for an individual to be bilingual; however, it is a curse for a society to be bilingual. The historical scholar Seymour Lipset put it this way, “The histories of bilingual and bicultural societies that do not assimilate are histories of turmoil, tension and tragedy. Canada, Belgium, Malaysia, Lebanon—all face crises of national existence in which minorities press for autonomy, if not independence. Pakistan and Cyprus have divided. Nigeria suppressed an ethnic rebellion. France faces difficulties with Basques, Bretons and Corsicans.”
In this continuing interview with Bromwell Ault, you’re probably gaining an understanding of America’s dilemma from his facts on what’s going on in the rest of the world. What happens them, eventually, will happen to us.
WCIV finds itself in a position of growing isolation facing the rest of the world where population and poverty fuel the politics of near global resentment that targets WCIV’s culture and institutions. One thing is certain — the new forces attempting to do away with WCIV will continue their efforts and intensify them by using the world’s growing population numbers to their advantage. This attack has been in progress for half a century without receiving the attention of our people and government that it deserves. The next 50 years are critical! What can we expect from our leaders? What will we do? Who cares? And why don’t we?
Never before in history has mankind been able to so effectively reach back into the past, gather information, study it in the present and then project into the future the variety and consequences of its impact on our human and natural worlds. The question remains, however, as to how we will use our new knowledge and skills.
The first thing we must recognize about contemporary AW animosity towards WCIV is that it is widespread and composed of many parts. Not surprisingly, perhaps, it is found wherever Westerners explored, settled, developed, traded, fought wars, signed treaties and created governments and/or boundaries. This list covers most of the earth’s land masses and sea routes.
Grievances have a way of starting small and growing larger over time, often aided by technology, population, poverty and natural disasters. In the ongoing drama of the attack on WCIV we will point out what we think are the most dangerous forces, their sources and the best way to combat, detect or neutralize them.
There is another factor involved that is every bit as essential as resisting external attacks. It is whether the West, and especially the U.S., can undertake the work of educating themselves to the reality of the situation, to resist political correctness (PC) and other forms of intimidation and to renew those values of courage and unity within our character that we have been able to call upon and exercise in other times, but which are now absent.
This brings us face to face with the crux at the heart of our AW crisis, and that is that by our response we have managed to do as much harm to ourselves as our opponents have. This failure has prevented us from taking decisive action and achieving real results. For instance, in our immigration policy we must decide whether our law should serve our national interests or those of American and foreign elements who favor the admission of millions of migrants “seeking a better life” (i.e., taxpayer funded food, clothing, education, shelter, medical care, etc.)
We have allowed this process of self-defeat and the psychology that inspires it, which contradicts two centuries of American thought and development, to take root and grow. And it has been efficiently exploited by domestic political elements which view the west as a declining culture that must yield to the growing numbers, demands and political authority of the emerging “New World Order”.
These are hard words to hear, but hear them we must, because only by articulating our real values can we regain them. While our elected leaders are given to frequent hyperbole about the superiority of our legal, military and economic systems, they seem not to realize how their policies and actions fail to protect WCIV and increase the threats against it and us. This has been a monumental failure on the part of the West. Careful study can reveal both reasons and excuses for its supine posture, but it is a failure nevertheless.
A BIRD’S EYE VIEW
In most parts of our world we can observe birds of prey such as eagles, condors, hawks, owls and vultures soaring and circling high above the earth in search of the animals, or their remains, that serve as the basis of their diet. Their eyesight is extraordinary, even by animal standards, and provides them with a range of view necessary for survival comparable in ways to that which our technology has provided us to extract information from our distant past and project its course and consequences for our future.
The bird’s vision enables it to span a very large area, note what is occurring in real time and then decide upon and take whatever action seems most likely to offer food or protection. In describing the condition in which WCIV now finds itself we must borrow the bird’s view, apply it to the last century, connect some key dots and arrive at an explanation in capsule form of how WCIV allowed itself to be attacked, demonized and damaged by multiple elements within the world order.
