    This is LONG, but interesting. Unlike the regular newspaper columns, he is able to ramble a bit, some of it's quite stream of consciousness, but good:

    One bit of irony is the socialist governments are allowing immigrants to dilute the natural population while compounding the problem by having low birth replacement rates.

    Exactly, which is why unless they gain a grip on immigration and find a reason to make nookie, they are doomed to becoming Islamic. I wonder if they notice?

    Well its a big step to make and I'm not prepared to make the argument, however I suspect a decline in family values in the Western European countries as one core problem.

    Another large jump on my part, but I'll risk it, the fall in family values followed the secularisation of 'post-modern' Europe.

    So if the theory of the article proves true a religous immigrant populas will replace a secularistic Europe. Now that's irony.

    That's just part of the larger picture, which is the West's failue to defend itself, period. This is a pretty amazing article for "The New Criterion," which hews to a quite neoconnish line... though it does make "Arabs" the bogeyman, when the real story is a little more complex. I believe Steyn is a converted Jew. Still, K has pulled up a very good article worth reading. As I read it, if Steyn had just expanded the point to "non-whites in general" he would have been much closer to the mark.

    I once asked Roger Kimball of TNC why the West was unique. He said it was just random. I asked if race had anything to do with it. He said "no." So, there you have it from one TNC writer --- all the success and glory of Christendom was just "random." Hey, dumbass, so why try defending it?

    But there's no such thing as the white race. And if there is, it's the most despicable race on earth. Your local paranoid jew could tell you this much.
