Multiculturalism and the Holocaust
When Australia became independent in 1901 her population was 98.5% white, and nearly all of that was British in origin. Now that number is around 70% and with mass immigration and a low birth rate that number will continue to decline. But how did such a thing come to pass?
We were not defeated in war nor has there been a natural disaster that has compelled people to flee here. No, this came to pass because the Australian Government decided to make it policy. That policy is called Multiculturalism and this policy now exists in nearly every white country. But why was Multiculturalism adopted?
To answer that we must go back to the 1800's and look at the Cult of Progress. Liberalism in the early 1800's began to see a very bright future for it's self and a big part of that was the rapid rise of technology. With technology no problem was beyond solving, if not today then certainly tomorrow. And the rate of technology was increasing, the future couldn't help but be better. With this idea grew another idea, that not only technology was progressing, but so was man. Man couldn't help but be better, man would become more humane, more intelligent, just better. War would end, man's inhumanity to man would end, things would just get better and better.
And there was some evidence to back this up, in the 1700's there had been lots of major wars in Europe, the War of the Spanish Succession, the War of the Polish Succession, the War of the Austrian Succession, the Seven Years War and the Wars of the French Revolutions. Each of these wars involved most of Europe on one side or the other. But the 1800's were different, there had been the Napoleonic Wars, but once they ended at Waterloo, peace came to Europe. There were still wars, but not major Continent wide conflicts. It genuinely seemed as if war was becoming something that belonged to the past. The century even saw the beginnings of International justice as nations sort to settle disputes via International Tribunals instead of by war.
But the Twentieth century was to see a number of these assumptions badly broken. The first was in 1914 when the first general war in Europe broke out in 99 years. What a war it was, massive in every way. The idea of progress took a big hit, but it wasn't out. Many saw the Cult of Progress alive and well in Socialism and Communism. The second great crisis of the Twentieth century, the great depression saw further faith put in these twin ideals. The third great crisis was the Second World War. A war that saw the mass bombing of cities and civilian populations. And it saw the Holocaust.
Mass deportations of people, the mass killing of civilians, these the Nazi's did all over Europe. From Crete to Norway and from France to the Volga. But their most infamous action was their attempt to exterminate the Jews of Europe.
This would have far reaching consequences as it created the biggest challenge to the Cult of Progress. Mankind was supposed to be more evolved than this, how could a civilized European people do such a thing?
Of course a civilized European people hadn't carried out the Holocaust, the Nazi's did and they did it because of their political beliefs. But not only did the German people get the blame, so did all of Christian Civilization, the civilization of the West. Because the Nazi's made a mockery of the Cult of Progress. They showed it up for the false God it was, a God just as false as the Nazi's God.
Liberalism wanted an answer as to why the Holocaust had happened, but the answers they got didn't have anything to do with Nazism. They decided that what was to blame wasn't the Nazi's, it wasn't a political ideology and it wasn't a conspiracy theory, They were only the surface, but underneath was the real answer. What did the Nazi's want? Whatever they wanted must be to blame. Whatever they wanted had to be destroyed.
The Nazi's talked alot about white supremacy, the supremacy of Christian Europe and the purity of race, These things were to blame for the Holocaust, To stop another Holocaust these things must be stopped, they were responsible, they must be punished for the past and they must be stopped from carrying out another Holocaust. Nazi's didn't kill the Jews, ideas did. In a sense, yes, ideas can inspire people to kill, but in the end it is not words that kill people, it is actions. Without the Nazi's to carry out these actions there would not have been a Holocaust.
When the Second World War ended Europe was in chaos with millions hungry and homeless. With the Communist take over of Eastern Europe many of those homeless people couldn't return home. The United Nations asked Western nations to take in these refugees and over the next decade most found homes in new countries. Here was the beginnings of Multiculturalism. People who didn't really want to go to new countries being received by people who didn't really want to receive them. And overwhelmingly both sides made do, But Liberalism saw this differently, they saw a chance to promote the brotherhood of man, to get the Cult of Progress back on track, If people mix together, live next to each other, then people will learn to understand that people are the same all over. Prejudice will end and humanity can get back on the path to the Cult of Progress.
But of course people already lived in these countries, they had their own communities and histories. Liberalism wasn't that interested in them, it was as always, interested in Liberalism. Liberalism had a plan to fix the world and they weren't going to let anything get in the way. So when someone complained about what came to be called Multiculturalism, they were often met with the word "Nazi"! Your not allowed to interfere with Liberalisms plan to save the world, they don't care about your life or your objections, all they care about is their intentions. As all major political parties are Liberal, Multiculturalism became policy. The concerns of ordinary people don't matter. Liberals are convinced that they hold the answer to stopping another Holocaust, to ending war and to stopping mans inhumanity to man and that answer is Multiculturalism, and they are absolutely wrong.
