par far wrote:The one thing I don't get is, how the western countries are in a downward spiral economically and the western countries can't take care of the people in their countries but are taking in millions of refugees and immigrants? Why is this happening?
The west is slowly destroying itself.
Most refugees are workers and no place in the world has an older population that's not into baby making than Europe .With fertility rates expected to hit zero in Europe in the next decade, the only way the European Union can fight elderly poverty and maintain its expensive entitlement programs is to increase immigration , at some limits refugees are useful .
The fertility rate in Europe is engineered to be the way it is, if the elite in Europe had worked on increasing the fertility rate of their respective countries by promoting family, religion and had they set up the needed resources for people to raise a family than the fertility rate in Europe would have been fine.
Most refugees come to Europe(and western countries) to get free money and benefits, they don't want to work and we are seeing this. Most refugees that are coming over are involved in crime, rape and criminal activities. That is not how you help your country.
The elites in the West made 2 big mistakes(along with other mistakes) and they are making a 3rd one that is leading to the rapid decline of the west:
The 1st mistake they made: Was not to divide Russia into small pieces when the Soviet Union collapsed(they now say this openly), it is to late now. Had they divided Russia into small parts, they would have grabbed the resources and could have controlled the small states. The Western elites did try to destroy Russian industries, they were not able to totally destroy them because they were too busy robbing Russia. Thank god Putin came into the picture.
The 2nd mistake they made: Was to give most of the manufacturing jobs that the west had to China, so the western elites could make more money. But at the same time they did not keep tabs on China and get try to install a friendly West Chinese government (it is too late now) because the western elites were making so much money. And now China has risen to challenge the West.
These 2 mistakes that they made, they did not know at the time because they were blinded by money and now these mistakes have come back to bite them.
The 3rd mistake that the western elites are making right now is bringing in too many 3rd world immigrants but they are blinded because they are making money. The mistakes they are making right now is destroying countries, so they can make money from stealing the resources of these countries and brining all the people from those countries into the West. And these people coming over are pissed and they are taking it on the local population, we can see this in Sweden where rape has gone up rapidly because of the refugees and immigrants, there Muslim grooming gangs all over Europe (especially in England). The western elites don't know that to much immigration does not work and Muslims(which are the majority that is coming) won't ever integrate into the society they are coming in to, history has shown us this. What they say is true "bring the 3rd world into your country and you become the 3rd world".
The Western Elites will regret their 3rd mistake in the future, same way they are regretting mistakes 1 and 2.
