The Death of the West -- A Howl or a Whimper?

I'm reading an amazing novel written in 1975, Camp of the Saints by Jean Raspail, that I can only describe as prophetic. It tells the story of an "armada" of broken down ships sailing from India to Europe with a million poverty stricken souls headed for the promised land. None of the Western nations will face the fact that such an invasion will unalterably change the face of the country where they land. All the leftists around the world cheer on the invaders including the liberal press. They attack the military and the police and proclaim that charity and mercy demand the refugees be welcomed with open arms. Meanwhile, the large numbers of immigrants already in the West see in the "armada" a call to better their own situation against the "racist" European whites and unrest becomes widespread. The pope of mercy is "Benedict XVI" although his persona is more descriptive of Francis.

As I read I keep having to look back at the date of publication.Was this really written in 1975? Isn't he describing the invasions taking place all over the western world by immigrants claiming a right to better their situations by illegally crossing borders and demanding free goods and services from the nations they invade whose culture they despise?

The book is thought-provoking to say the least. I tend to be a bleeding heart and my first reaction is to say, "Of course, these people need help." But why are they not receiving help that allows them to stay in their own countries and thrive?

Think of all the countries of the world teeming with poor when their countries are rich in resources. Why are India, the nations of Africa, Central America, etc. filled with so many poor people when their countries have fertile farmland, rich mineral deposits, grazing lands, etc.? What has made the West a land of opportunity, while the East is for so many a land of despair? Is it really all the fault of western exploitation? Will one world government really end the political corruption so endemic to so many countries?

I will be finishing this book and then beginning it again. The politicians, the religious leaders (including leftist Jesuits and the World Council of Churches), the media manipulators, etc. are all there weaving their webs of "mercy" for the poor while they gather their wealth and flee. Their hypocrisy allows no mercy for the ordinary people whose lives and country will be turned upside down by the invaders. The left portrays the conflict as racism of white Europe against the colored of the world dismissing any concern about the loss of national unity impacted by a totally different culture. It's the same nonsense we hear daily about the religion of peace and the cruelty of the border patrol enforcing our immigration laws.

An interviewer on Amazon called the book "chillingly depressing" and it is because what it describes is coming to pass. The West is signing its own death warrant and Raspail reminds us of it by repeatedly having Mozart's Requiem played.

I can only wonder what will be left of Judeo-Christian western culture for my grandchildren. Our Lady Help of Christians, pray for us.

Mary Ann,
I was just given a copy of a book published in 1970 by Yves Dupont, who spent much of his life compiling the predictions of holy men and women in the Church. The little book is titled Catholic Prophecy. Like you, I was amazed at how spot on the predictions of a Muslim surge into Europe is, while it had to have seemed to people in the '70's as very unlikely. The cost of this little book is outrageous on used book sites, but so very many things in it are worth considering. What was at the time of printing only prophecy, we actually see happening today.
What he reports about the tail of a comet wreaking havoc was especially sobering. It is such a thing that could cause the three days of darkness which is predicted by many people. Dupont was dismissed as a kook and a nut by liberals in the Church because he saw the dangers ahead after Vatican II. But then, that's what liberals do. Whatever they thought of him, it doesn't change what was prophesied. And the Muslims ARE taking over Europe which will fall into terrible civil wars before its over.

Yes Chris , I've read the book over and over since buying it in the late seventies.
Most of them I have committed to memory. Interestingly, the prophecy from Sr Marianne or just Marianne is the same person as the one in the newly re recognized Our Lady of Good Success in Quito, Ecuador.
Last night I decided to revisit Youtube just to see what the man in the street was recording in various nations that have been force fed Muslim immigration.
Japan and Australia are all experiencing great tensions, the streets of Paris no longer look the same, the German Danish and UK national peoples are all up in arms.
There are older videos in which Imams are instructing their men to go to the US and Europe and breed with their women in order to wipe Christianity off the face of the earth.
Yesterday Obama's address to the UN was abysmal just like our Pope's askew views of what constitutes open border charity. I think of the half of the Fatima Third Secret we were given and it seems very much a possibility considering the multiplication of Moslems and the sharply declining birth rate of Christians.
The communist nations on the other hand, have seen fit to crack down on the immigration of Islamists.
They relish the destruction of the freedom loving nations through the Moslem invasions.
Google it all on youtube to see how all the nations are coping.......

Everyone who identifies as Christian should see this.
