The elites of the West have turned against the West. They have concluded that the West is indefensible, and undefendable - indefensible because of the evils that they perceive in it, undefendable because of the decadence that they see, against lean, mean, adversaries, such as, in previous generations, Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia, with their centrally planned economies that they elites saw as more rational than the West’s, and the current crop of Islamic Jihadist, who are willing to commit suicide while murdering innocent people.

The problem is that these elites have used their positions of authority to bring large segments of the populations of the West to their way of thinking, to the point that like minded politicians can be elected, or appointed, to positions of power.

We now have people in positions of political power who have made common cause with the sworn enemies of the West. They did so in their time with Nazi Germany, and Soviet Russia, who inconveniently collapsed under pressure, military, as well as economic and political, from the West. But that was a time when there were still some political leaders in the West with the gonads to oppose them. I am sad to say that I do not see that happenning as we face the assault by the Jihadists.

These elites must feel guilty of what they perceive as their undeserved position in the world, inheritors of the richest and most advanced nations. They remind me of children blowing their daddies' money and their families' reputations.

It's ironic, if true, that shame over a Nazi past has propelled Europe into the arms of people who, by and large, allied with the Nazis.

It may be that Europeans, largely socialist/fascist at heart, are simply more psychologically compatible with Muslims than anyone has really wanted to admit.
