We know that our society cannot go on; whatever once was has been replaced, mainly because it endorsed the ideology of those who would replace it, and what exists now works for no one. Likely this is the last Columbus Day for America.
However, for now, we should celebrate the meaning of Columbus Day, which is to celebrate the urge to explore and discover new places, creating in them the same greatness that Western Civilization has created everywhere.
I reject the idea that just because someone is failing, the rest of us must check our rise. The Amerinds got replaced for a reason, namely that their keystone civilization (Cahokia) had failed centuries prior.
Columbus was not the first Westerner to come here; in the Amerinds remaining, we discovered some traces of Indo-European blood from ancient times. Our last venturers here were absorbed.
Likely, Europeans learned from their encounters with Muslim invaders during the Crusades and the Golden Horde during the Mongol Invasions, namely that if we encounter a foreign group, we must conquer it because it will try to do the same to us, no matter how “nice” we are.
Currently, diversity has conquered us, and we are trying to be “nice” and hoping for mercy. This will not work, and is unfortunate because it will boomerang into an equal and opposite reaction of brutality.
Those like myself who speak against diversity would avoid both of these reactions, and instead look toward the pragmatic, which is that diverse societies fail, but homogeneous ones have a chance to gain control of themselves, suppress human weakness, and rise.
