Instead, we are seeing the highest stage of neoliberal capitalism playing out all over the Western world right now, and here is the BBC doing us all a tremendous service by describing it, as advocated by a non-executive chairman of Goldman Sachs International and a UN special representative for migration:
Brian Wheeler, “EU should ‘undermine national homogeneity’ says UN Migration Chief,” BBC News, 21 June 2012.The highest stage of neoliberal capitalism is the quite explicit drive for the demographic replacement of the peoples of the developed capitalist Western world.
Neoliberalism and Neoclassical economics place no value on national identity, or social and cultural cohesion, whether of working class people nor of whole nations. Hence the utter insanity being pushed today, as also advocated here by Noah Smith.
Funny how Marxists aren’t interested in analysing, discussing or acknowledging this.
Because many Western nations have fertility rates below replacement levels, Neoliberals want massive levels of immigration to prevent a falling population, not to mention more and more low-wage workers for capitalist exploitation, and no doubt other Neoliberals and corporate capitalists will love such labour as they use it to smash the high wages and labour rights of workers.
But that logically requires the destruction of the cultural and ethnic homogeneity of pretty much all Western nations, and the Neoliberal advocates of this don’t even bother to hide that this must be the consequence of their policies.
But why should native Europeans be in favour of their own dispossession and demographic replacement? (even if it did have, economically speaking, benefits, which is doubtful.)
And for that matter why on earth should any people – say, for example, the Japanese – be in favour of such a thing even if they did have a low birth rate?
Wouldn’t it be better to try much more radical means to raise the birth rate to replacement levels before destroying the national identities of nation after nation, or attempting insane social engineering experiments not seen since the disaster of Lysenkoism in Soviet Russia?
And this is all, once again, proof of the straightforward point about free market capitalism as argued by Ha-Joon Chang:
“Wages in rich countries are determined more by immigration control than anything else, including any minimum wage legislation. How is the immigration maximum determined? Not by the ‘free’ labour market, which, if left alone, will end up replacing 80–90 per cent of native workers with cheaper, and often more productive, immigrants. Immigration is largely settled by politics. So, if you have any residual doubt about the massive role that the government plays in the economy’s free market, then pause to reflect that all our wages are, at root, politically determined.”The most crippling and disgusting problem with the Left today is that there is no left-wing moment willing to oppose open borders capitalism and the destruction of the national identities of Europeans.
Chang, Ha-Joon. 2011. 23 Things they Don’t Tell you about Capitalism, Thing 1: There is no such thing as a free market
On the contrary, most of the Left is vehemently in favour of these policies, even though its more radical wing prides itself on opposing the excesses of free market capitalism. But why is this?
The Left has simply been taken over by the quasi-religious obsession with multiculturalism, Third Worldism, quasi-Marxist internationalism, and what can only be described as a toxic racial hatred of European people and the very idea that European people should have majority homelands in which they survive as a majority to preserve themselves and their culture.
At the same time, it is unlikely that these leftists in question would deny those rights of national homelands and national identity to non-European people all over the globe. Why, for example, don’t most Leftists call for massive diversity in Tibet, China, Japan, Korea, India, Africa, Indonesia, or Saudi Arabia?
