A Vicious Cycle – Immigration woes and aid to Africa

As a follow up to the post about the welfare state I thought I’d share a fantastic article that highlights another piece of this puzzle.  It was written by Kevin Meyers for the Irish Sunday Times on January 11th, 2015 but I can’t find the original link so I’m sharing this one instead.  An opening excerpt:

Somalia is not a humanitarian disaster; it is an evolutionary disaster. The current drought is not the worst in 50 years, as the BBC and all the aid organisations claim. It is nothing compared to the droughts in 1960/61 or 73/74. And there are continuing droughts every five years or so. It’s just that there are now four times the population; having been kept alive by famine relief, supplied by aid organisations, over the past 50 years. So, of course, the effects of any drought now, is a famine. They cannot even feed themselves in a normal rainfall year.
Worst yet, the effects of these droughts, and poor nutrition in the first three years of a child’s life, have a lasting effect on the development of the infant brain, so that if they survive, they will never achieve a normal IQ. Consequently, they are selectively breeding a population who cannot be educated, let alone one that is being educated; a recipe for disaster.
We are seeing this impact now, and it can only exacerbate, to the detriment of their neighbours, and their environment as well. This scenario can only end in an even worse disaster; with even worse suffering, for those benighted people, and their descendants. Eventually, some mechanism will intervene, be it war, disease or starvation.
So what do we do? Let them starve? What a dilemma for our Judeo/Christian/Islamic Ethos; as well as Hindu/Buddhist morality. And this is beginning to happen in Kenya, Ethiopia, and other countries in Asia, like Pakistan. Is this the beginning of the end of civilisation?
AFRICA is giving nothing to anyone outside Africa — apart from AIDS and new disease. Even as we see African states refusing to take action to restore something resembling civilisation in Zimbabwe, the Begging bowl for Ethiopia is being passed around to us out of Africa, yet again. It is nearly 25 years since the famous Feed The World campaign began in Ethiopia, and in that time Ethiopia’s population has grown from 33.5 million to 78+ million today. So, why on earth should I do anything to encourage further catastrophic demographic growth in that country? Where is the logic? There is none.
To be sure, there are two things saying that logic doesn’t count. One is my conscience, and the other is the picture, yet again, of another wide-eyed child, yet again, gazing, yet again, at the camera, which yet again, captures the tragedy of children starving.
Sorry. My conscience has toured this territory on foot and financially. Unlike most of you, I have been to Ethiopia; like most of you, I have stumped up the loot to charities to stop starvation there. The wide-eyed boy-child we saved, 20 years or so ago, is now a low IQ, AK 47-bearing moron, siring children whenever the whim takes him, and blaming the world because he is uneducated, poor and left behind. There is no doubt a good argument why we should prolong this predatory and dysfunctional economic, social and sexual system but I do not know what it is.
Strong words.  Probably difficult for most people to swallow at first but really it makes total sense and is entirely true.  We’re not doing any great service to them (or us) by encouraging behavior and providing the resources required for unsustainable population growth.  It’s cruel.  And every humanitarian disaster going forward will only be magnified because of it.
So we have a population that is growing at startling rates, and which cannot feed themselves.  And then, because of this humanitarian disaster, we are brow beaten and guilted into taking an ever increasing number of “refugees”.  Another way to look at it is our tax dollars are going to “aid” for food and clothing and whatever else.  Then we get to pay for them a second time when they come to our countries and live off of welfare for who knows how long.  What a great deal!
It’s frustrating to have to lay out in painstaking detail and ever so slowly how devastating this is both to them and ourselves.  The video below was circulating for some time which shows how utterly useless allowing in millions of refugees in the overall scheme of things is.  It’s a drop in the bucket.  And it will only bring us down.  We can barely keep our own heads above water as it is.
Keep in mind, whether the disaster du jour is a famine, or if it’s a manufactured crisis a la deposing the leader of a nation (say, Libya, for example) which then causes a humanitarian crisis (and slave markets) the end result is the same with regards to refugees.  When you step back and look at the grand scheme of things, it’s clear that if we stay on our current course it can only end badly.  Whether this is just a bad combination of a few players wanting to make a quick buck somewhere along the line, or whether it’s the master plan to purposely shuffle large swaths of populations around to sow discord among the population for much darker purposes remains to be seen.  And the end result is the same anyways.  This will break the back of Western Civilization as we know it.
