The Camp of the Saints and the Golden Dawn
The Camp of the Saints is a dystopian novel written by the French author Jean Raspail. Although it was first published as long ago as 1973, the author is still alive today. Now 88 years old, his brain remains remarkably sharp for a man his age.
Raspail has published many books, but the one for which he will be chiefly remembered is ironically his most atypical one. Over forty years ago, The Camp of the Saints predicted a Third World mass invasion of Europe, causing the downfall of Western civilization. This process was compressed in time so that what might take fifty years in real life took fifty days in the book. Also, the main bulk of illegal immigrants in the novel came from India. Today, while immigration to Europe comes from every corner of the planet, much of it comes from the Islamic world and Africa.
Apart from that, the novel was remarkably prescient in describing the dysfunctional mindset of the modern Western world. We have become so wedded to unsustainable humanitarian ideals that we are mentally incapable of defending our own continued national existence. When faced with millions of people coming from the global South, we simply raise a white flag and say that they are welcome to colonize our countries.
Or at least, that’s what our leaders and mass media do. Some of the natives are finally and belatedly starting to get restless about their state-approved ethnic displacement. Is this European awakening coming too late, or does it happen at the very last moment? Only time will tell. Jean Raspail was pessimistic on behalf of his native France in a new interview with him made in 2013.
In the generations that have passed since its original publication, The Camp of the Saints is no longer just a novel; it has now become actual reality in Europe. Hordes of illegal immigrants are entering the continent, sometimes by boat as in the novel, sometimes by other means.
In May 2011, I went for a trip to northern Italy. When visiting Pisa in magnificent Tuscany, I was greeted by sub-Saharan Africans selling Chinese-made authentic Italian souvenirs in the streets. Globalization is wonderful. I doubt all of these immigrants were in Italy and the EU legally.
For the first time in recorded history, the continent of Africa now has a larger population than the continent of Europe. What’s more, the already unsustainable African population is set to double in the coming two generations.
Africa is on the move, and it’s moving north. The Middle East and regions further east in Asia have already seen a growing influx of Africans. I visited Tel Aviv, Israel, in early 2013, for the first time in ten years. In just one decade, I saw many more Africans there than before. Obviously, Israel has some Ethiopian Jews, but Ethiopians have a distinct look. The ones I saw this time were often not Ethiopians. They were sub-Saharan Africans on the move out of Africa.
Ultimately, the intended destination for many of them is no doubt Europe, the promised land of milk and honey. The only response European political elites and the EU have to this is that it is “shameful” for Europe if foreigners trying to illegally enter and colonize Europe run into accidents along the way.
Meanwhile, the few people of European descent still left in Africa — mainly white South Africans — are being systematically wiped out in the most brutal manner possible. Africans wipe out the few Europeans in Africa, and then promptly follow them to Europe. Africa for Africans, and Europe for Africans, too.
