See here and here. If things go on like this, it seems France may well face a permanent state of emergency. If it gets much worse, it will be more like low level civil war in a major European country. As Europe descends into chaos, even millennial cultural leftists and other regressive left lunatics will have to face reality, and this is the issue that will bring many of them to their senses.
Brace yourself for a torrent of regressive left insanity and vile apologetics which will ignore all the serious issues:
(1) isn’t EU open borders, or open borders of any kind, insanity at this point?I imagine even many left-wing people, even some of the regressive left, must be quietly asking these questions.
(2) why does the West need mass immigration of people whose communities are breeding grounds of this extremism? Why on earth should Europe continue to let in 100,000s of people, whether they are refugees or mere economic migrants, when this will inevitably let in more terrorists? (In case you thought the migrant crisis ended, it hasn’t; it just shifted to some extent to Italy: see here, here, and here.)
(3) why do Western governments tolerate Islamism in their nations and the endless promotion of this extremism by Saudi and Arab gulf state funding? (And we also may finally be about to see the full extent of the involvement of figures in the Saudi government in 9/11.)
Regressive leftism will implode over the coming years as people, especially the young, see how catastrophic cultural leftism and multiculturalism have been. Many will no doubt feel angry and betrayed when their utopian delusions implode.
When this happens, I honestly hope these people will not defect to the right. They will need a sensible but hard-headed left-wing politics to fall back on. People who can intelligently point out what went wrong, without pushing conservative economics or the standard right-wing agenda.
It’s time to build that alternative leftism. And, yes, I hope it will look like the version I have outlined at the end of this post.
