“Multi-Culturalism and Rising Dependency Spell The Death of Liberty!”

“Deluded are those who cannot see,
What’s going to happen to you and me,
When multi-culturalism and rising dependency,
Snuff out the life of our precious liberty.”
About 40 years ago I was an insurance agent located in Chicago where my territory consisted of approximately 2 square miles on the north side, around North Avenue. Within that 2 square miles there existed what was estimated to be 18 national identities, 18 languages and 18 different cultures, with there own dedicated territories and borders. Most of these cultural enclaves were of European descent. A melting pot it was not. It was and still is a hot bed of ethnic strife created by religious, cultural and language differences. It is the epitome of multi-culturalism in America, where each ethnic population holds on to the ways of the “old country” and assimilation into American culture and its foundation of freedom is inhibited. Even in Seattle, where I grew up, there are ethnic communities and like all borders between peoples, cultural clashes are inevitable. It is no different in any city in America and even more so where there are large populations of illegal aliens and blacks.
Big cities not only produce multi-culturalism and ethnic strife, they also produce pandemic dependency ….. not on each other, but on the government. In our article entitled, “Big Cities Are Hazardous to Your Health“, we wrote this: “During the industrial revolution jobs would dry up in the ever-changing world of technology, markets and fortunes made or lost. Sometimes large segments of the city populations would be out of work when a large manufacturer closed down. [Detroit is a prime example] The Great Depression came along in the late 1920’s and early 30’s and large percentages of city populations could not find a job. City folk had no way to produce the food, clothing and shelter they needed to survive. In contrast, their country cousins could grow what they needed, had a roof over their heads and could live off of the land, no matter how primitive it might be. If they had a little extra, they would help out their neighbors, who by circumstances may have been a little less well off. Civility and mutual respect were the rural landowner’s creed and still are for the most part today.”
“Not so in big cities. The fact is, a hungry belly has nothing to lose by petitioning (or protesting) their government for a handout and civility is the last thing on their minds. Where else can they go but the government? If people are hungry enough, they have nothing to lose by resorting to violence. [need we mention present-day Greece] The government was all-too-willing to provide that handout for votes and thus socialism was born and socialism is where we are today because way too many people live in big cities and are incapable of helping themselves when times get tough. Katrina/New Orleans showed us that in spades. Over the last 100 years government thrived and grew on big city dependency.”
“But the other consequence of high-dense living is the steady lowering of the bar of civility, respect and trust. Human behavior changes under the conditions of living closer together. It does so because of a basic human fact. No matter what the government, socialists, or the environmentalists will tell you, people like and need “their” space and the space does not come in a 1,000 sq. ft. apartment in a 25-story building, surrounded by concrete on all sides, in a big city. Suburbs became a partial answer to the human need for space. But then the suburbs began to increase in density as governments got into the act of “planning” where we live and work.”
Now, with 13 to 30 million (no one knows for sure) illegal aliens being absorbed into the American culture, due to government’s abject failure to secure our border, the cultural gap between the peoples of poorer, socialist countries comes up against a large segment of the American population that is educated and productive, with a history of individual freedom and liberty burned into their DNA. It is estimated that the illegal alien population increases by a half to one million new souls every year. Babies born to illegal aliens increase their numbers almost exponentially.
Cultural clashes over language, religion, political mindsets and the soaring cost of social services, education and medial care are not only inevitable, they are occurring with greater frequency. Granting amnesty to those 13 to 30 million will only increase the animosity towards, not only those who break our laws and suck on the teat of legal American’s generosity, but anger at a government who would thumb their collective noses in our faces and make legal Americans pay for their negligence, stupidity and treason. Violence erupting from that anger and those clashes, is all but assured.
But the real issue is how the massive influx of Hispanic illegal immigration will affect the politics of an America, caught up in an avalanche of multi-culturalism and epidemic dependency. The U. S. Census Bureau is forecasting for the year 2050 a White population of 52.5%, a black population of 15.7 percent and a Hispanic Population of 22.5% with a few percentage points thrown in for all other races. The Census Bureau’s forecast we were able to find is considerably dated and we believe that the black and Hispanic numbers will be much larger, primarily due to unchecked illegal immigration and illegal alien birth rates. Fertility rates for Whites has declined below replacement levels, but fertility rates for blacks and Hispanics are rising well above replacement levels. For all intense and purposes, by 2050, America will be brown, as many in the black and Hispanic races have predicted.
Add to this mix federally mandated curriculums for our public schools that indoctrinate our children with multi-culturalism, globalism and collectivism, along with the virtues of dependency.
Politically, the White population is split fairly evenly between liberal and conservative, but the black and Hispanic populations are essentially liberal, with blacks being over 90% liberal and Hispanics being well over 60%. This socialist, multi-cultural voting block will put the liberal stamp on American politics well into the next century and beyond. We will be Europe on steroids. American politics, by sheer population demographics, has no other future than socialism, that is until the politicians finally acknowledge that they have run out of other people’s money to pay for their promises to a multi-cultural population that is wholly dependent on a government, a government that is headed for the deep chasm of national bankruptcy. At that point, America will descend into chaos and anarchy. None of what we have described here includes the world-wide rising tide of Islamo-Fascism and its effect on politics, fertility rates, freedom and war.
If conservatives and other productive members of America seriously want to preserve, protect and defend the vision of individual freedom and liberty under our Constitutional Republic, they have only two choices. Convince a skeptical black, Hispanic and other dense urban populations that individual freedom, responsibility and self-reliance are the only path for America, or be prepared to go to war. Otherwise they have no choice but to capitulate to the inevitability of perpetual socialism.
As multi-culturalism and dependency on government increases, so too will mediocrity, apathy, sloven behavior and self-loathing. The shining city on the hill will be extinguished forever. As the Sun has come up in the East for the last 4.5 billion years over planet Earth, so will the moon of socialism rise over America in the coming decades. If population demographics holds on its present course, nothing will stop the rise to a socialist America, without massive upheaval of our way of life. The ghost of Karl Marx will smile at the fact that his vision for the world’s people has finally come to pass. But his smile will be fleeting because socialism always leads to revolution immediately after government runs out of their ability to redistribute the wealth of a nation that finds itself in declining productivity and morality.
