This startlingly prescient article explains, better than any news report could, what is happening in Paris this week. A long read, but for anyone interested in this most important story very worthwhile.

Long, but good. I love hearing how our nation has all these unique problems. Seems the rest of the world has them as well.

"Everyone knows la douce France..." Thought he said La Douche... at first glance. All of Dalrymple's columns are good reads about the decay of western civ.

From these projects, the excellence of the French public transport system ensures that the most fashionable arrondissements are within easy reach of the most inveterate thief and vandal.

Wonder why lots of middle class Americans aren't interested in improving public transportation?

It seems to be a matter of time only before this spreads across Europe.

As infuriating as the French are- much about their culture has enriched the world- yet their unwillingness to face themselves will be their undoing.

Excellent article. I think there was another article by Dalrymple here earlier today. Impressive.

Although it may see peripheral, what he says about le Corbusier is all too true. I would add the Bauhaus School. The International Style is dehumanizing to a sickening degree.

There's nothing prescient about this ninny's article. This reality was predicted over 33 years ago in The Camp of the Saints.

Want to know why Dalrymple is a fool? Saying this:

Unless it assimilates these millions successfully

The problem isn't that they aren't "assimilating". The problem is that they are there. They and their religion have no plan for assimilation and never did.

Quite the opposite.

I read this a while back here on FR. It is a great piece. Theodore Dalrymple is a great social commentator. Thanks for posting it.

A very good article but I would go much further and state that the Barbarians have long ago breached the "Gate".

Just as Rome didn't notice when it was falling, Parisians were much too busy giving themselves shorter work weeks, spending summers on "holiday" while their parents died to notice that the lifestyle they have grown much to comfortable with has been paid for by Muslims and now the same are demanding their due.

The inhabitants of the cités are exceptionally well armed. When the professional robbers among them raid a bank or an armored car delivering cash, they do so with bazookas and rocket launchers

Surely there are laws against owning bazookas and rocket launchers? < /sarc >

Those Barbarians have been there for centuries.
It's just that now they have competition for that title!
