In the last weeks two overly influential European politicians talked about Europe’s possible future and their visions about Europe of the next decades. These two politicians are Wolfgang Schäuble, Germany’s finance minister and Frans Timmermans, vice president of the European Commission, i.e. persons who in fact influence and are able to influence the future of Europe and/or the European Union.
Before starting to cite their speeches I have to make the following statement: if the vision of Schäuble and Timmermans will not remain barely a vision but would – despite or rather due to the Brexit – become practice, life, reality, then we Hungarians and the citizens of Europe should reconsider whether keeping the Union together is still reasonable or should the leadership of a Union of this type be reasonably accepted, or should we consider other solutions.
Wolfgang Schäuble has given an interview to Die Zeit about the immigration policy of the German government and among others he stated: migrants should be let in order that Germany’s population would not be inbred. He says: “isolation is what would ruin us – it would lead us into incest.” He also adds: “Muslims are an enrichment of our openness and our diversity.” […] „Look at the third generation of Turks, especially the women. That is an enormous innovation potential.”
It is nonplussing.
So far we believed that the German government opens up the gates for immigrants in order to find replacement for labour force that decreases from one year to the other. Well, now we got an answer marked by vigour: this Schäuble who is usually mentioned as an anointed expert of financial affairs, this Schäuble who until now “excelled” primarily in continuously enforcing economic sanctions on Greece, has suddenly become an expert of migration, civilisation and demography. Until now we could rightfully believe that he will be the last one who tries to explain for the public the totally suicidal and incomprehensible Willkommenskultur not from the aspect of economic and labour force replacement necessities. However, totally unexpectedly Schäuble discovers the real and fundamental importance of migration in the mixing of German and Arabic, Muslim peoples, races. In the course of that interview, the finance minister extends the topic and puts it into not only German but European context and indirectly states that Europe will degenerate and become incapable of living if European races will not unite with Arabic or other races.
Schäuble’s visions are not only frightening but are indefensible even for the first sight. What sort of racial degeneration threats Germany with her population of 80 millions where ab ovo several German ethnic groups live together, Bavarians, Saxons, Swabians, Prussians, Rhinelanders, North Germans, etc., not mentioning Europe that is well-known for her wonderful national multitude, starting from the Celtics through the German peoples to the Slaves and further on. How can racial degeneration be mentioned in this case? On the contrary: European peoples, ethnic groups, nations, minorities in their multifariousness show a larger unit, an operable system that one could call culture or civilisation. Specifically this unity building on multifariousness would deteriorate when and if it would mix with other cultures and civilisations, which could result in its weakness, deterioration and finally in it its extinction.
Not mentioning that the Muslim world is characterised by inbreeding, marriages between cousins, meanwhile wedding with Christians is expressly forbidden and deemed to be sin. What is the finance minister speaking about? What could be the consequence of mixing between Muslims and Europeans which he deems to be appropriate and desirable? Not at all the consequence what he is thinking of. Rather, on the basis of the Islamic Law the marriages with Muslim men would be followed by the islamisation of the European, German women, and this process would never go to the opposite direction. All these would lead to life-and-death struggle between not only parallel societies but rather between parallel cultures and religions, leading to destruction, war and deterioration.
But let us focus on Frans Timmermans who told to the members of the European Parliament the following: “… diversity is humanity’s destiny. There is not going to be, even in the remotest places of this planet, a nation that will not see diversity in its future. That’s where humanity is heading. And those politicians trying to sell to their electorates a society that is exclusively composed of people from one culture, are trying to portray a future based on a past that never existed, therefore that future will never be. Europe will be diverse, like all other parts of the world will be diverse.”
Diversity in this context means nothing else but the racial, national, ethnic and genetic mixing of the nation-states. However, the EC vice president goes beyond that and says that none of the countries – EU member states – may contemplate a society that is exclusively composed of people from one culture. Now this is about the unification and mixing of cultures and civilisations. It is thus impossible for Poland or Hungary to dream about building their societies further on on the Christian cultural habits and traditions. Timmermans states with annoying arrogance: there will be no such future! European countries will be characterised by racial and cultural diversity.
In other words: everything will radically change and turn upward, the European culture will melt into perhaps a new and unprecedented globalist summit culture foretelling a beautiful future.
And this is told by no one else but one of the leaders of the European Union.
Coming back to Wolfgang Schäuble: the thoughts of the German finance minister on German and European inbreeding or on the magnificence and wonderful possibilities intrinsic in the mixing of Muslim and German, European peoples are from the scientific and/or cultural aspect indefensible and ridiculous. Now the question is: why does he speak so?
The answer can be found at Timmermans who simply declares that racial and cultural mixing and multifariousness is the future of Europe and the nation-states. This will happen and that’s it. In other words what we are facing here is nothing else but an ideology-based vision, plan of some leading European politicians regarding a huge neoliberal-global attempt to change the world; after communism and fascism the third gigantic vision that is now aimed at forcing the entire world on its knees.
I think if we are searching the reasons behind finance minister Schäuble’s unexpected becoming to an anthropologist and demography expert or his “enlightening”, then it is worthwhile totally coincidently and silently mentioning that before the publication of this interview, he – for the first time – participated in the annual conference of the Bilderberg Group, in Dresden. There, in general, participants have time to schmooze. But this may be an overly incidental coincidence…
I have to repeat again: if a political elite “hallmarked” by Timmermanses, Schäubles, and, of course, Merkels and Martin Schulzes will determine Europe’s future, a certain brave, new global world, then in fact the fundamental questions related to EU could not be circumvented.
