Europe's food crisis

in #politicslast year

(Coming to the supermarket near you.)

While the coronavirus pandemic has shutdown all economic activities in the world, roving armies of locusts are devastating Africa and parts of Asia. By the UN calculations, the world will likely be presented with unprecedented food shortage for the foreseeable future. With little to no capacity for importing food from Africa, Europe will likely face problems supplying their subjects. With their economy nonfunctional, the decentralised distribution of limited food supply via the market system will not be practical, nor desirable, for much of the European subjects. It becomes incumbent upon the European states to direct food distribution via centralised planning, if they are to avert potential food revolt throughout their realms. Sadly, because the West no longer has a traditional government, but rather is managed by an oligarchy of financial interests, the European Council enacting any decisive measures to prevent starvation is unlikely.

The assumptions pervading a social construct debilitates pragmatic actions by obstructing conceptual flexibility. The humanist drivel of a “universal” human rights seems to have lulled men into believing that entitlements and privileges are a fact of nature. Modern humanist has deluded himself into conceptualising his being as existing apart from his community, society, genetic inheritance, and creation. For the modern humanist, civilisation springs forth from the earth, unbidden, with his “rights” and “freedom” endowed upon him from aether. Human civility is a universal condition of man, and all men share the values and reference of his prejudice.

Human society is forged through the strength of will and dues rendered in blood. Man may be admitted into a community by his genetic inheritance, but maintains his place through his obligations and duties owed to his society. The communal duties of a man is more easily rendered within a homogenous society, as the instinct for in-group preference works in conjunction with the needs of the society; but a polyglot empire could potentially produce similar loyalty from their subjects via indoctrination of the rulers’ cultural preferences unto their subjects. In all circumstances, one dominant monoculture is necessary to bind a society in stability and order, the only duty a government owes to its subjects.

The West, however, plagued by decades of “multiculturalism” exists in fragmented, competing, ethnic enclaves, without any leadership or will-power to bind these disparate elements into a community, or society. Without a dominant monoculture, the Western political landscape is reduced to competing ethnic and commercial interests vying to steal as much resources as possible from the public treasury. Without loyalty towards community that binds any of Western factions, their “society” is reduced to nothing more than commercial markets, bandaged together via ever-diminishing resources and ever-increasing supply of debt-currency. With the markets nonfunctional, even the flow of currency will cease, and any semblance of social cohesion will vanish.

Before even the memory of Western societies vanish, the European Council must enact measures to stabilise the inevitable social disruption, following the predicted food supply disruption. Draconian measures and “tyrannical” methods will be necessary to prevent total social collapse. It will not be the weak-kneed merchant gnomes, but true rulers, willing to spill necessary blood, who will preserve any vestige of Europe. Privileges granted can easily be rescinded; and the survival of the race and the greater whole is the transcendent objective, under which all other considerations become trivial. Will Europe find the will to live, or will it fade away?
