"The Next America" - Two Dramas In Slow Motion

Tyler Durden's picture


That America has - or perhaps more accurately that the administration is desperate to create - a wealth divide, gender divide, and certainly ethnic divide, is hardly a secret. Yet all of those may pale in comparison to the transformation that the US is undergoing currently, according to the most recent Pew research study, one which finds that the world's one time superpower, is in the midst of two slow-motion dramas right now.

"Our population is becoming majority non-white at the same time a record share is going gray. Each of these shifts would by itself be the defining demographic story of its era. The fact that both are unfolding simultaneously has generated big generation gaps that will put stress on our politics, families, pocketbooks, entitlement programs and social cohesion.

Let’s start with what demographers call an “age pyramid.” Each bar represents a five year age cohort; with those ages 0-4 on the bottom and those ages 85 and older on the top. In every society since the start of history, whenever you broke down any population this way, you’d always get a pyramid.

But from 1960 to 2060, our pyramid will turn into a rectangle. We'll have almost as many Americans over age 85 as under age 5. This is the result of longer life spans and lower birthrates. It’s uncharted territory, not just for us, but for all of humanity. And while it’s certainly good news over the long haul for the sustainability of the earth’s resources, it will create political and economic stress in the shorter term, as smaller cohorts of working age adults will be hard-pressed to finance the retirements of larger cohorts of older ones."


But it is not just young vs old: it is the dramatically shifting ethnic composition of America that may have an even greater role in shaping social, immigration and economic policies in the decades ahead. In fact, as the Pew projection below shows, some time around 2040, whites will become a minority to all other ethnic groups residing in the US:

From Pew:

At the same time our population is going gray, we’re also becoming multi-colored. In 1960, the population of the United States was 85% white; by 2060, it will be only 43% white. We were once a black and white country. Now, we’re a rainbow.


Our intricate new racial tapestry is being woven by the more than 40 million immigrants who have arrived since 1965, about half of them Hispanics and nearly three-in-ten Asians.


Because these tranformations happen tick by tock, without anyone announcing them with a drum roll or press conference, they are sometimes hard to perceive.


But every so often societies experience “aha” moments, when the change is right there in plain sight. We had several such moments in early 2014, as three iconic American brands, Coke, Chevy and Cheerios, rolled out ads during the Super Bowl and Olympics that were aimed at what one voice-over called "the new us."


Product advertisers aren’t in the business of making political statements. They’re certainly not in the business of making enemies. They must have known some of their images – interracial families, same-sex parents, “America the Beautiful” sung in several languages – would disturb some of their customers. But they also do their market research and look at their numbers. They know how fast the country is changing.

Where is the bulk of the shifting ethnic landscape coming from? Not surprisingly, from what is a very hot political topic these days: immigration.

Our modern immigrants are different from the big waves of newcomers who came in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Back then, about nine-in-ten immigrants were from Europe. Today only about 12% are from Europe.


But some things don't change. No matter where they come from, immigrants are strivers. They’re optimists. And they tend to have a lot of kids. Our immigrant stock – that’s immigrants and their children – is projected to make up about 37% of our population by mid-century, the highest share in our history.


But understand: this isn’t new. We’ve always been a nation of settlers and immigrants. In this regard, the middle of the 20th century wasn’t the norm, it was the outlier.

Nowhere is the culmination of these two tectonic slow-motion "dramas" more evident than in the choice of America's president.

In the past few elections, the young/old partisan voting gap has been the biggest since the voting age was lowered to 18 in 1972. As recently as the year 2000, there had been no difference in the way young and old in America voted. Now, there's a chasm.


Six-in-ten young voters supported Barack Obama in his re-election bid in 2012, compared with just 47% of those in the age ranges of their parents (45 to 64) and 44% of their grandparents (65 and older). By race, six-in-ten white voters supported Republican candidate Mitt Romney, whereas more than nine-in-ten black voters supported Obama. Obama also captured more than 70% of the Asian-American and Hispanic vote.

When it comes to the age divide, the political split is clear: the youth are liberal, the elders conservative.

Millennials have voted more Democratic than older voters in the past five national elections. They came of age in the Bush and Obama eras and hold liberal attitudes on most social and governmental issues, as well as America’s approach to foreign policy.


Just as members of the Silent Generation are long-term backers of smaller government, Millennials, at least so far, are strong supporters of a more activist government.


In some social issues, such as legalizing marijuana and same-sex marriage, Millennials particularly stand out for their favorable views compared with other generations. Nearly seven-in-ten (68%) Millennials favor allowing gays and lesbians to marry, compared with just 48% of Baby Boomers and just 38% of the Silent Generation.

Yet while the youth may like its pot and gay marriage, the one place where it is most likely to opine on these topics is FaceBook.

Then there’s the technology revolution. Today’s young are history’s first generation of digital natives. The online world isn’t something they’ve had to adapt to — it’s all they’ve ever known, and it’s their indispensable platform for social interactions and information acquisition.


Today’s old have been playing catch-up online, some more enthusiastically than others, but they have a long way to go. The typical Millennial who uses social media has 250 Facebook friends — making them five times “friendlier” than the smaller number of Silents who use social media.

But the most concerning aspect in the age divide is the number of working individuals required to support every safety net beneficiary: from 16 workers supporting every retirees in 1950, this number is now down to just 3.

But the status quo is unsustainable. Some 10,000 Baby Boomers will be going on Social Security and Medicare every single day between now and 2030. By the time everyone in this big pig-in-the-python generation is drawing benefits, we’ll have just two workers per beneficiary – down from three-to-one now, five-to-one in 1960 and more than forty-to-one in 1945, shortly after Social Security first started supporting beneficiaries.


The math of the 20th century simply won’t work in the 21st. Today's young are paying taxes to support a level of benefits for today's old that they have no realistic chance of receiving when they become old. And they know it – just 6% of Millennials say they expect to receive full benefits from Social Security when they retire. Fully half believe they’ll get nothing.

In light of all this "math", is it any wonder there is an increasing gap in the perceptions of not only the young versus old, but of America's diverse ethnic groups - each with their specific needs, and wants - all thrown into a boiling cauldron of record debt insolvency, in which the economic growth of the 20th century - that one distraction that masked the social unsustainability of social trends in the US for decades - is simply no longer possible?

There is much more in the full Pew study, however perhaps the one party whose input would be most germane here is the group of economist central planners who believe they know how to do everything to fix this country. We are talking of course about the largely cluless economists and other people who have never encountered the real world, who inhabit the Federal Reserve's Marriner Eccles building. Because if they too are as confused about how this all play out as the rest of us, then a crashing stock market is the least of our worries.

I know a lot of Hispanics who talk about la Raza and the the Reconquista and other such nonsense.   The first time the actually go to Mexico they get their eyes openned big time once they are given away by their accent and poor Spanish skills.   Ever heard the word pocho?

Hispanics THINK they are not being assimiulated.  But the US is like the Borg collective.

I used to watch the old George Lopez show.   One of the strange things about it was that Lopez (Mexican Hispanic) disliked Cuban and Puerto Rican Hispanics and had all sorts of stereotypical attitudes about them.     I could never figure out if the show was being ironic or not.

I have friends who are Americans of Mexican heritage, and they don't like illegals coming into the country one bit. (Several of them spent time in the US Army & Marine Corps overseas where they got shot at).  Their grandparents came to this country legally, like milllions of other Americans.

Au contraire, mon frere!  "Hispanic" is a racial group. 

"Latin" is a language group (French, Italian, Latin, Portuguese, Romanian, Romansch, Spanish).  A Latino/Latina is a person of predominantly Hispanic ancestry, who speaks a Latin language.  Christ, don't they teach anything at school any more!?

p.s. Bet you $20 you didn't even know what "Romansch" is, till you looked it up just now.

Congratulations on your fine education and or your ability to search the net.

For practical purposes however, - The US Govt has diclared all Hispanics as minorities, soon to be the largest minority group in the US and in 30 to 40 years as the majority population in the US.

I wonder if the US Government at that time will revoke their preferrential minority status?

"Hispanic' is a fake category, as far as 'race' is concerned. Its applied broadly to those speaking Spanish, except Spaniards. (Crazy, yeah.) Usually it refers to those with origins in Latin America. Those who would think people from Peru are the same as those from Mexico don't have a clue. Its about history/culture not 'race'. 

'Hispanic' is no more a 'racial category' than "Italian American" or "Irish American" are racial categories. These are all 'ethnic', that is, cultural/historical classifications.

Under the strategy of 'Divide & Conquer' they love to focus on differences rather than common values and interests. They know about human tribalism and use it against the fools who fall for it.

Actually, I've known about Romansch since grade school.  And I thought it was just a 'regular' school, where natural curiosity and a thirst for knowledge was almost a religion.

It wasn't in the US, though.  Not that this matters either, IMO.  What did matter, I think, is that we had a diverse mix of kids from different economic and cultural backgrounds -- who all shared a love for education or a 'good debate'.  When we weren't pulling (mostly) harmless pranks on each other, or oggling at the girls.  Or stealth-throwing paper airplanes at the effeminite priest in Religion, and pointing at each other as the culprits.  When he got mad, we'd draw the symbol of the Holy Spirit on them, to give him a face-saving "out" (Holy Spirit Airlines).

The goal with protected groups is to get to a place where anyone can sue anyone else as soon as someone is offended, because that's what happens in a government made up of lawyers. Not sure how the "make everyone a dependent" is going to work out when there are no/not enough productive people to leech.

Wait, no, I do know. Exactly the same thing that happened to my Chinese relatives when Mao tried making everyone depend on the CPC over there.

Latin was a language, of the Latino-Faliscan group, of the Italic subfamily, of the Indo-European family. So you're wrong on all counts. Languages predominantly influenced by Latin (French, Spanish, Italian, Romanian, etc.) are called Romance languages, conveniently emphasizing the Roman and not the Latin connection.

"Hispanic" and "latino" mean effectively nothing. They're terms used by ignorant and/or biased South Americans and Mesoamericans who wish to bolster their self-serving claims to Spanish ancestry (because Spaniards, in this bizarre context, are considered "white" ... because apparently Hispano-Romans [circa 2000-1000 years ago] were "white" even, magically, after mixing with Carthaginians and, magically, remained "white" even after mixing with all manner of North Africans [Moors, Berbers, etc.], just like Sicilians are "white" despite being invaded from all directions for it's entire history up until about 1200 AD...), as opposed to indigenous and mestizo - South and Mesoamerican indigenous people sure as hell aren't Hispanic or Latino. And virtually no one from South or Mesoamerica is not mestizo today, so the "Hispanic" claim is in fact bullshit insofar as it purposely downplays this fact. While "Hispanic" is etymologically a product of the Spanish toponym "Hispaniola" (the portions of the New World discovered by those in the service of the Spanish Crown - the Caribbean, Mexico, South America), this demonymic usage is never seen - that is what we use "South American" and "Mesoamerican" for. It is no less absurd than calling the Russians a "race", despite the fact that by the word "Russians" are designated some five dozen or ethnic groups, even the so-called "ethnic Russians" are of course in fact just a branch of east slavs - a mixture of peoples from the far west of present Russia plus Ukraine, Belarus, and neighboring areas, combined with Scandinavians, mainly Swedes. It is nothing but a convenient shorthand for a convenient fiction for use by and with the ignorant and credulous, usually deployed with a political agenda in mind.

Calling someone "latino" is like calling someone North American. How do you know that your gardener has "predominantly Hispanic ancestry"? How do you know he's more than 50% Spaniard by descent? What does that even mean? His "Spaniard" is more than likely partly Moorish, partly Hispano-Roman, and partly Visigothic - who had migrated from parts of what are today eastern Europe and the Balkans (Dacia). Gee I guess this is a bit more complicated than Americans like to assume.

None of this is taught in any school I've ever heard of, mostly because it eviscerates the (bullshit) nationalist narratives of every modern nation.

And I'll take my $20 in gold, please.

Hispanic is also not the point still remains.

Just because its pointed out as fact, doesnt mean somebody is being racist.


Just like a time magazine article I read in the 90's titled " yo whitey, get to the back of the bus."


Personally,  I DO think its a shame that whites are becoming extinct. Especially natural blondes with blue eyes.

But maybe thats just me. Because I am one. How would you feel if you saw your "type of people" being deluded or extinct? ..probably not very good. 

I dont necessarily have a problem with any one type of person..but when they deliberately try to exterminate / dilute your kinda hurts a little. Gone. No ore. Not until its over and hopefully more aliens will try a little harder this time. ;)

Then you have this other strange misnomer "caucasian". I am one of those but have 0 links in any aspect to the caucasian region. I have a daughter who has the same northern European ancestry. We were recently to London and she got two different proposals for trying out modelling with a view to a contract, just standing outside a retailer on Tottenham Court Road and doing nothing in particular.

Later the same afternoon I socially met an Israeli and I am told that you can´t really never ever beat Nordic genes. He didn´t look to pleased. ...However everythings is not work. You gotta have some fun sometimes. And sometimes a fact is just a fact.

Nordic european genes?

Apart from some Welsh people, the irish that were called black by Indo europeans, where should they come from?

Most people populating Europe are Indo Europeans, coming from Asia. With them, their genes.

Yes nordic european genes. Go have a look in northern Germany , Denmark, Norway, Sweden , Iceland and places like these. Even the british isles have a strong admixture of those gene sets since those lands were ruled by Danes. The other population of those isles are said to be Anglo-Saxon (essentially nordic - german stock) and also of Celtic origin.

Black hair but very milky skin complexion and sometimes blue eyes are a trait you find in Celtic heritage. As for the IndoEuropeans...they are they folks that spread out of a supposed area in the vicinity of the Black Sea and the Caucasus and populated Europe as well as Iran and India - hence indoeuropean. In fact a lof of mummified bodies of European likeness have been found in Chinese deserts. The are 6 feet tall , reddish hair and distinct non-asian facial and body structure.

The Indians get very angry when you discuss the possibility that Europe westwards as well as Iran and india eastwards were colonized by the same people, Indo-Europeans. The Indiansfeel this is yet another attempt on colonialism and imperialism and are adament that everything started in India and came out of there. However genetical and lingustic findings point towards invasion of India from the north-west. The original peoples of India slowly moved to the south and are likely to be those of dravidian heritage.

understood.....but here's the reality.   For some reason, the politically correct people from south of the US border have collectively decided they do not want to be called Mexicans.  In some organizations using the term "Mexican" is very offensive.   I have no clue why.

So, to avoid such an offensive term, they prefer to be called Hispanics and in fact, most fortune 500 companies today have as "ethnicity or race", "Hispanic" rather than "Mexican".

The odd thing to me, is that there's not really anything offensive about being called a Mexican.  But they'd rather be identified with their conquerors and pillagers and those who stole all their gold and silver and slaughtered masses in the process.  The Spainards. 

Oh well....that's the way the world turns.  Happy Cinco De Mayo.

The reason is easy. A lot of Hispanics are Guatemalan, Costa Rican, etc. and therefore not Mexican. I learned it when I worked with said Guatemalans and Costa Ricans at my first job. Actual Mexicans are less offended about it.

Conquerors and pillagers? Looks like someone's been buying into the progressive propaganda fraudulently passed off as "American History".

Look at how many people clearly of Native North American descent remain today. Not many. Now look at how many people of native central american descent remain today. Tons. Your claim that the Spanish came in and raped and pillaged is grossly exaggerated. The Spanish destroyed the Azteks, who were absolutely brutal to the tribes of their surrounding region, and the silver was not particularly highly valued by these folks since it was so much more common.

Lastly, the idea that the Europeans intentionally wiped out the Native Americans with smallpox-infested blankets is also false, as those days predate the modern understanding of germs.

i, on the other hand, am strongly against armed gangs of thugs (government types) pushing people around, drawing arbitrary lines in the dirt, and telling peaceful, decent people where they can or cannot go.

clearly, what you refer to as illegal immigration, plus a welfare state, doesn't work, as it brings in moochers who want to live off the labors of others.

however, i contend it's the welfare state part of the equation that's the problem, rather than people moving freely about the earth as they choose.

I would have no problem with immigration, if anyone coming here was forced to make a go of it on their own; like it was a century ago.

The problem is when the incentives are such as to encourage single women with no interest in assimilating into American culture to get here any way they can; birth their children (who magically become citizens) and then apply for TANF, Food Stamps, Section-8, WIC, Medi-Care,....

This is why the FSA will ultimately win; some people work for a living; some people vote for a living...

My, what a fine moral sentiment.

Problem is we do have a welfare state and we do have wide open immigration even with falling wages and falling workforce participation.

So what are you going to do to end the welfare state? What is your moral duty and what percentage of your time and money will you devote to that cause?

Mon, 04/14/2014 - 05:36 | 4656116 stacking12321
stacking12321's picture

when you say "we" have a welfare state, and "we" have open immigration, are you attempting to include me in the statist scam / scheme that is going on around us?

i don't participate in state scams, i don't support the state, it has no legitimacy, no moral basis.

when a group of armed thugs attempt to control others through violence and coercion, they reveal themselves to be enemies of the people, and enemies of human liberty.

it is not my moral duty, as you put it, to put a stop to the evils committed by others. i won't support them, i'll speak out against them, and i will work outside their systems as much as possible and support alternate systems. but you're mistaken if you think i have some obligation to fight them head-on. their system will collapse of its own accord, anyhow; a welfare state is its own undoing, it just takes time.

I have trouble with these numbers. First, the population in 1950 was around 150 million people with 85 % being white. If 40 million new immigrants moved to the US over the last few decades, where did all of the white people go? The numbers are BS.

Very true. I hate when people say that the employer match on the 401k is "free money" for this very reason but I contribute a few % and the employer match does help a bit. But that's why I hold physical metals because you're probably right. 


I just like a little diversification. My entire 401k is just dumped into the S&P500. If it crashes, it crashes. I think my physical PMs will more than make up the difference and the stocks might provide some good income/inflation protection. Certainly better than a bank account.

Just remember when you read about the changing face of the youth of America, the non-English speakers and those going into huge debt for fiscally useless degrees, the libs voting to dump trillions in newly printed debt into wasteful sick-care and education systems, the borrowers with ARMs who think their mortgages are indexed to the Nikkei, the blown up families and single moms and babydaddys with records, THIS is who the government is counting on to pay your benefits.

I get a little tired of all the harping about 'infinite growth'.

A better way to describe it is as a continuous use and reuse of resources through technological variation. Just like Mother Nature does through the evolutionary mechanism of life.

If you piled up all the matter used and reused by life over the last 3.5 billion years, how deep would that cover the land surface of Earth? A couple miles?

The growth has been tremendous but the Earth is still the Earth.

You may have a good point on the Latina marriage bit.

However: - Only under government EEOC - AA guidelines does the US Govt count Hispanics as "minority." Everywhere else in the world they are white.  Hispanics love the minority status as it gives them victim-hood, and equal treatment to jobs and bennies as black citizens. As people of color, it also gets them to the front of line for jobs, education opportunities and any other available freebies.

“The Indians that the white man met were no more the original inhabitants of the country than were the Normans and Saxons the original inhabitants of England. Other peoples had come and gone before, leaving only their shadows upon the land…"

Continues author Louis L'Amour, historian of America's Western frontier: “There has been so much concentration on the native Americans found in possession when the white man came that little thought has been given to those who preceded them (such as the Anasazi)… It is time white men understand that most of the Indians found in possession were latecomers, and all too little was known and who had preceded them.”  

Speaking of the established indigenous cultures in North America and "how the Red Indian once felt," they were not under threat by the white man any more than by their own warring nations eliminating one another. As just one example, it was the Navajo-Apache tribes that eliminated the good planting Indians who lived in peace and bothered nobody in their villages along the Rio Grande: it was the Navajo-Apaches migrating down the east side of the Rockies who completely destroyed these peaceful tribes.

'Americans' have this they think they can get away by defining, redefining and redefining again.

Anasazi are no longer Indians. They were until they were no longer in order to make up for a new fantasy.

Biggest thing: impossibility to cope with the immediate reality.

No matter how apt the "apaches navajo" were at completely destroying the peaceful tribes, they were not that much that they would have eliminated the Indians before it is performed by 'americans'

When 'americans' are adept of discrimination/segregation there is no degree of magnitude for 'americans for certain things. Suddenly, everyone is on one equal footing.

There is no comparison between the "navajos-apaches" power of wiping out entire societies. The fact is that when 'americans' took charge, the soon to become US territory was peopled by hundreds of different indian societies.
237 years later, they are all gone, destroyed by 'americans'.

Claiming that people who did not manage to perform a similar job in one thousand years or more were an equal threat than people who managed the trick in 200 years is one of those 'american' twists that 'americans' are willing to indulge.

It takes an 'american' historian to push forward such blatantly false fiction.

When you want to wipe out societies, you know who to call if you want efficiency. And that is not those "apaches-navajos". With them, you're still at it in one thousand years. Guaranteed.

Harry Reid, Son's Solar Power Scheme Linked to Bundy Ranch Standoff
Posted on April 12, 2014 by Tad Cronn
"...One of the companies interested in building a solar plant on BLM-controlled land is the Chinese firm ENN Energy Group, which wants to build a $5 billion solar facility in the Nevada desert near Laughlin. ENN is represented by lawyer Rory Reid, Sen. Harry Reid's son. The Chinese firm also wants to build on a 9,000-acre plot in Clark County, where rancher Cliven Bundy is holding off the BLM, and where Rory Reid used to be the chairman of the County Commission.

According to Reuters, the County Commission voted to sell ENN the public plot of land for $4.5 million, a fraction of its appraised value of $38.6 million.

Majority Leader Sen. Harry Reid has been one of ENN's most prominent supporters. According to Reuters, he recruited the company for the project during a trip to China in 2011. Reuters also reports that Reid has tried to pressure the state's largest power company, NV Energy, to become ENN's first customer.

Sen. Reid has had other links to dubious power projects, including Amonix, a company with no record of success that received huge tax breaks then collapsed. There was also Nevada Geothermal, which received $98 million in federal loan guarantees but in a recent filing with the SEC revealed that it is undergoing substantial problems that threaten its ability to continue as a company.

Both Reids have denied ever discussing the ENN project or working together in any way on it, but the paper trails suggest otherwise." ...t.c.

Bill Gates Millenium Scholarships
"Students are eligible to be considered for a GMS scholarship if they: • Are African American, American Indian/Alaska Native, Asian and Pacific Islander American, or Hispanic American;"

"The goal of GMS is to promote academic excellence and to provide an opportunity for outstanding minority students with significant financial need to reach their highest potential by:

Reducing financial barriers for African American, American Indian/Alaska Native, Asian Pacific Islander American and Hispanic American students with high academic and leadership promise who have significant financial need;"

The “Hispanic Scholarship Fund” (HSF) says that it “aims to put a degree in every Latino household by 2025” through its affirmative action program in college recruitment.

Funding for the HSF comes from a large number of corporations, which, according to that organization’s website, include the FedEx Corporation; the Mazda Foundation; KLASS Time; GMAC Financial Services; Lowe’s; the McNamara Family Foundation, Inc.; Goldman Sachs; Procter & Gamble; Toyota Motor Sales U.S.A., Inc.; the Verizon Foundation; McDonald’s; Target; the Morgan Stanley Foundation; Nissan North America, Inc.; the Sallie Mae Fund; Wells Fargo; the Draper Family Foundation; the Shell Oil Company; the Wachovia Foundation and the UPS Foundation, amongst many others.

The HSF says specifically that it is only for “Latinos” and those of Hispanic descent.

It obviously does not concern these corporations in the slightest that their money is used specifically to exclude white Americans from support.

On the HSF’s website, under their “Frequently Asked Questions” section, the policy is spelled out in no uncertain terms:

Do I have to be Hispanic/Latino to apply?” is the question the website asks.

The answer is: “Yes. You or your family must be descended from at least one of the following countries: Spain, Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Panama, Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Peru, Argentina, Chile, Bolivia, Uruguay, Paraguay, Cuba, Puerto Rico, or the Dominican Republic. Students from Brazil are eligible to apply. However, students from Belize, Guyana, Suriname, and French Guiana are not considered Hispanic.”

Incredible how Bill Gates, the recipient of America’s bountiful culture of free enterprise, economic justice, and vast commercial opportunity, has become one of its most destructive citizens.

And, now, this destroyer of jobs and salaries for Americans, is publicly tied to rampant American socialism through the appointment of his protégé, Sylvia Mathews Burwell, to head Obamacare.

Burwell previously was the president of the Global Development Program of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation where her program focused on world poverty, financial services for the poor, and global libraries, i.e., propaganda -- a fitting background for saddling Americans with Obamacare for the Third World.

She was CEO and Executive Director of this multi-billlion dollar Foundation and its abortion agenda prior to its reorganization in 2006

The race statistics have been gamed for a very long time now. Remember, if there's any intermarriage in the bloodline, you're not white according to this.

Long ago, my high school valedictorian was the whitest, coutry-clubiest, harvard-bound aryan from a wealthy family you could imagine. In his academic record he was listed as black, because he had single great grandparent who was black. The same is true for hispanic.

Both sides like this particular approach to gaming, but it has little basis in the melting-pot reality of the US when you have Asian next door neighbors with Garcia as a last name.

Its really not funny is it?  Look at what have allowed in our collective names.

Still, I sit here chuckling having a beer and think to myself we will all just get by and get along.

We wont, we will do nothing of the sort.

And just think of the clowns who run our countries.  They think they can just walk away from the chaos they caused?

They cant, they wont, and they will regret the choices they made, in our collective names.

We are almost about to see unleashed 'Real' human nature.  Its not what the politicians would have you believe, but then I do believe I may be preaching to the converted here.

To be frankly honest, I am not looking forward to it, but then again.....

In 1960, the population of the United States was 85% white; by 2060, it will be only 43% white.

Actually America was 90% White in 1960, just as Los Angeles was...and I would suggest that Whites are truly about 55% of the population, at best right now. The census counts all sorts of non-whites as White. Just as the FBI counts Mexicans as white in their violent crime reports and stats. Arabs and others are counted as white currently by the census, and the Arabs, Armenians and many other groups, WISELY, are saying HECK NO WE ARE NOT WHITE, as in the California elite colleges Arabs and others have been clamoring to be counted as non-white.

They know the way the wind is blowing.

"Something is happening: we are becoming the first universal nation in history ... If you believe, as the author does, that the American drama is being played out toward a purpose, then the non-Europeanization of America is heartening news of an almost transcendental quality."

There has not been a "universal nation," that has survived even its attempt to creation. Look at Ukraine today, Lebanon during the last 50 years, Syria, Eastern Europe under Communism as well as other examples.

America could never be defeated by external forces. We will see if it can be defeated from within.

"The Census Bureau has just reported that about half of the American population will soon be non-white or non-European. And they will all be American citizens. We have tipped beyond the point where a Nazi-Aryan party will be able to prevail in this country. We have been nourishing the American climate of opposition to bigotry for about half a century. That climate has not yet been perfected, but the heterogeneous nature of our population tends to make it irreversible -- and makes our constitutional constraints against bigotry more practical than ever. (Earl Raab, Jewish Bulletin, February 19, 1993, p. 23)

"It was only after World War II that immigration law was drastically changed ... In one of the first pieces of evidence of its political coming-of-age, the Jewish community had a leadership role in effecting those changes." (Earl Raab, Jewish Bulletin, July 23, 1993, p. 17)

The goal of the Jewish activists who took the leadership role in passage of America’s demographic changing 1965 Immigration Act, according to Jewish activist Earl Raab in the Jewish Bulletin (1993), was “to alter the ethnic composition of the United States.”

“By increasing ethnic heterogeneity” in America, he said, the goal was to make “it even more difficult for a political party or mass movement of bigotry to develop” that might be a threat to the Jews.

As a result, by restricting US immigration almost exclusively to the Third World for nearly (50) years, the Jews have been influential in the decline of homogeneous Protestant Christian culture in America. -- D. A. Hollinger, Science, Jews, and secular culture: Studies in mid-twentieth century American intellectual history

Hugh Davis Graham wrote in his 2002 book Collision Course (pp. 56-57):

Most important for the content of immigration reform [i.e., loosening], the driving force at the core of the movement, reaching back to the 1920s, were Jewish organizations long active in opposing racial and ethnic quotas. These included the American Jewish Congress, the American Jewish Committee, the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith, and the American Federation of Jews from Eastern Europe. Jewish members of the Congress, particularly representatives from New York and Chicago, had maintained steady but largely ineffective pressure against the national origins quotas since the 1920s…. To the public, the most visible evidence of the immigration reform drive was played by Jewish legislative leaders, such as Representative Celler and Senator Jacob Javits of New York. Less visible, but equally important, were the efforts of key advisers on presidential and agency staffs. These included senior policy advisers such as Julius Edelson and Harry Rosenfield in the Truman administration, Maxwell Rabb in the Eisenhower White House, and presidential aide Myer Feldman, assistant secretary of state Abba Schwartz, and deputy attorney general Norbert Schlei in the Kennedy-Johnson administration.

The key to the Jews' machinations is "big government." Big government is perpetually and forever their tool, their instrument, of theft and destruction.

The answer is not more big government turned on them, because that will ultimately just corrupt and destroy us and they always manage to turn it back on their usurpers anyhow--they can always undermine and takeover any big government. This is what the Nazis experience teaches.

No, the answer is the removal of their tool and instrument of destruction, big government.

JR, the same information, in a couple of videos:

Immigration by the Numbers -- Off the Charts

Who opened America's borders?

The fundamental issues are runaway exponential growth of systems which are directed through deceits and frauds, which make any rational political debates practically impossible. All of these kinds of deceit driven and directed exponential growth curves are rapidly reaching a whole bunch of different, but interconnected, LIMITS. However, since society is dominated by enforced frauds, there is no way that society can respond other than rushing into head-on collisions with those WALLS OF REAL LIMITS, and then bouncing of a cliff, whose bottom can not now be seen.

From a sublime point of view, it is interesting to speculate about the possible parameters of that problem of runaway exponential growth, which will manifest its overshooting. I continue to predict that the human population on the Earth in 2100 will be less than one billion, rather than more than 10 billion. I would make the same predictions for the USA, as a subset of that. Since our society is almost totally dominated by systems of legalized lies, backed by legalized violence, which are trapped inside of vicious spirals of evil deliberate ignorance, it is practically impossible to imagine how we could rationally respond to even the most basic issues, such as of the limits of water.

Although there is no doubt that there are plenty of THEORETICAL CREATIVE ALTERNATIVES, what is most probably going to happen is that there will be Peak Social Insanities, as the same time as Peak Everything Else, as we have collectively engaged in exponential growth as much as was possible, while being able to maintain attitudes of evil deliberate ignorance towards the longer term consequences of doing that.

American society is almost totally deranged, by having been controlled by ruling classes that tended to be tiny percentages of the population, who were often in turn controlled by even smaller percentages of people who were not even Americans. There are obviously lots of parallels between the ways that the American monetary and taxation systems were commandeered and controlled, compared to the ways that the American immigation polices were commandeered and controlled, by tiny minorities, who favoured other minorities, for ulterior evil purposes.

Despite that there is no doubt that there are theoretically possible creative alternatives, in the practical world of politics, everything is already so totally controlled by lies, backed by violence, which were made and maintained with attitudes of evil deliberate ignorance, that there are no reasonable ways to avoid the conclusions that we are rushing at fast as we can towards overshooting limits that we collectively have disregarded, as much as possible.

Those dramas were in slow motion, but are picking up speed at exponential rates. By the time we actually run into the real limits, we will have long ago past the point where we might have slowed down before hitting those walls. After that head-on collision with the real limits (that our fraudulent accounting systems enabled and encouraged us to deliberately ignore), we will bouce back off, and go over a cliff of collapse into chaos, whose bottom we can not now imagine, and which we will probably continue to not look at until we bounce off of those lower levels of rock bottom.

Every time that American society succumbed to being effectively controlled by the triumphs of the methods of organized crime being able to dominate its political processes, American society as a whole took another pyschotic step towards living in ways which were based on lies, which inevitably drove the entire society to become another increment more insane. That is the context in which American society is headed towards manifesting Peak Insanities.

Furthermore, that kind of social system has dominated the rest of the world, and for several decades America has been leading the whole world towards achieving that state of Peak Insanities. It appears to me to be a clear historical fact that similar groups of people were behind driving the American monetary and taxation systems to become more than 99% based on triumphant, runaway fraudulence, as were behind enacting immigration policies which were similar. It was not an accident that both the human ecology and the political economy operated on the basis of the maximum possible deceits and frauds, and therefore, both the financial and demographic aspects of those Two Slow Motion Dramas were interconnected to be creating the Next America.

Rad, I have just sat through the two videos and listened to every word. One conclusion: Frightening!

And to top it off, with this dangerous slide toward the loss of our country and culture that you and the videos so effectively describe, I am struck with the fact that to speak about it is both unpopular and considered to be un-American. This statement from one of the videos stands out:

“When people are afraid to speak the obvious, you’re not free…”

But speak we must.

Thanks!! Radical Marijuana, for this vital commentary.

Yeah, JR, I think that your observation that "to speak about it is both unpopular and considered to be un-American" reveals the degree to which people have been scientifically mind-controlled, to believe in bullshit. That it is generally considered "un-American" to discuss the things which are actually destroying the American democratic republic is an expression of the degree to which we are ensnared in the maze of madness of a Bizarro Mirror World, where pretty well everything portrayed in the public schools and mass media became proportionately backwards and distorted.

We ARE ensnared in spirals of enforced frauds, wherein the majority of people adapted to personally survive by deliberately ignoring the basic insanity of those frauds that, as many readers of Zero Hedge already know, but most people do not, the public "money" supply is being created out of nothing as debts by private banks.

Similar levels of insanity run throughout all of our attitudes towards human ecology as through the political economy. The grand paradox continues to play through of the threat of final failure from too much fraud.  That runaway financial fraud has totally permeated every aspect of American society. Those who were able to get away with them having the privilege of legally counterfeiting the public money supply were able to use that advantage to steadily buy up control over the schools and mass media, as well as to pay the best experts that money could by to assist in the campaigns to scientifically brainwash the vast majority of people to believe in bullshit, despite the levels of cognitive dissonance that required.

I agree with you: "One conclusion: Frightening!" In my view, it is not possible to exaggerate the degree to which American society has already become driven collectively insane, and is still on the path towards Peak Insanities. The basic points made in this article above, IF one takes them seriously, is that we are headed towards situations where the debts and promises are mathematically impossible to repay or to keep. However, the established systems were always based on absurd frauds, which only worked because they were enforced, which enabled society to collectively deliberately ignore the facts, in such a way that these Two Dramas In Slow Motion, are actually about watching something like a train wreck in slow motion.

I like to maintain irrational hopes for some to survive through that train wreck, and recover on the other side. However, in my view, the train has already jumped the rails, and is now sailing through the air towards it tumbling head-on collisions with real limits. Tragically, there was never any way to slow down the exponentially accelerating frauds dominating the American political economy, nor slow down the accelerating frauds dominating the American human ecology. There are now hundreds of millions of people, who are supposed to collectively be hundreds of trillions of dollars in debt, within an insane system which has no "solutions" other than to allow itself to be flooded by millions and millions more immigrants, etc., within a financial system which can only operate by creating more "money" out of nothing, as more debts.

We definitely should speak more of the radical truths about that situation, however, as far as I can tell, the vast majority of people have been too effectively conditioned against being able to consider those radical truths, since everything, for more than a Century, has been dominated by runaway triumphant financial frauds, being able to take over more and more control of every facet of society, so that almost nothing is left that can take any proper perspective upon that situation as a whole.

Since the majority of people are still living in the Bizarro Mirror World, where everything they see is Backwards, but they do not know that, and do not want to know that, I repeat my opinion that is almost impossible to exaggerate the degree to which American, and the similar globalized civilization, represent runaway social insanities, headed towards Peak Insanities, as a direct consequence of the runaway successes of having have a fundamentally fraudulent financial accounting system, operating through its vicious feedback loops of almost completely crazy and corrupt political processes, continuing to legalize bigger lies, and back those up with more legalized violence, BUT, which violence could never make those lies become true, but only drive that society as a whole to become more insane!

Every area of political policies that one studies tends to reveal the same basic pattern of those social facts: the profit from fraud was reinvested in more fraud, while the profits from that were privatized, and the losses socialized. Therefore, we are approaching the point where the total of all socialized losses is becoming greater than the privatized profits ever were. All of the governmental policies that I am aware of tend to constantly reinforce the advantages of small special interests, in ways that enable them to continue to pay for the political processes to become even more corrupt. In that context, I can not see any practical political ways to stop that whole system from playing through, until it causes its own psychotic breakdowns.

For decades, I have been discussing the need for some serious social psychiatry, to deal with the runaway social insanities, however, my audience for that Fringe Cubed position has always been an almost infinitesimal fraction of the population. The market for a more thoroughly scientific view of human society is vanishingly small, since the entire established system is based on organized lies, operating robberies, which deliberately want to ignore those facts about themselves as much as possible.

There is nobody who is "successful" within the established systems that does not operate through the established monetary systems, which means that everything they do is based on FRAUD, which was enforced by governments. Hence, there are things like a handful of mass media corporations, worth about a trillions dollars, from whom people get 90% of their information, and which spend billions and billions, every month, to produce propaganda to try to persuade people to believe in fictions. I would doubt that even 1 in 10,000 of that is spent to try to persuade people to look at the bigger picture facts.

While the Internet is quite interesting in its potential to enable us to share information in ways which were never before possible, so far, that has not become enough to change anything significant ... But nevertheless, it does provide some solace for my irrational hopes for the future to not yet be completely extinguished. I repeat my view that there is just as much of an exponential growth in the possible creative alternatives, as there is the exponential growth in the destructive realities, and it is not certain yet how that may eventually turn out ???

Pew: “But some things don’t change. No matter where they come from, immigrants are strivers.”

Well, yes, some are strivers. Some are optimists. Many have lots of kids and all the other characteristics that Pew has provided. But the one characteristic of the huge wave of Third World immigration since 1965 is the spectacular lack of support for the European cultural foundation that made America the moral and economic giant of the world.

Of course, that was the intention of the 1965 Immigration Act.

The new waves of legal immigration, not to mention a tsunami of illegal aliens, are primarily low-skilled, often non-English speakers and guided into America by offers of welfare and the chance to displace Americans from their jobs.

This is what Pew Research refers to as “strivers.”
