The European Problem

Drinking Sea Water to Overcome Thirst

We continue to muse over whether Europe will ever survive as a union of states--with a Federal bureaucracy holding final and absolute power.

It is doubtful that it will.  Hungary is now setting an increasingly independent course--independent, that is, from the "Europe with no borders" commitment of Angela Merkel and the reigning bureaucracy in Brussels.  The way the Prime Minister of Hungary, Viktor Orban puts it, the nations of Europe should, on the one hand, be thoroughly committed to European values, while, on the other, it must (therefore) close its borders to the migrant horde.

In Orban's view, there is an evil empire operating within Europe, tearing it apart from the inside.  And that empire is both led and controlled by another Hungarian, one George Soros.

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has made an impassioned defence of European values and identity at the Bálványos Summer University camp in Romania Saturday, calling on European nations to end their association with billionaire open-borders financier George Soros.  Speaking at the 28th Bálványos Open University camp Saturday, which was this week was hailed as “one of the most important discussion forums of the Hungarian community” by Hungary’s deputy Prime Minister, Orban contributed to an apparently new tradition of the Hungarian PM using the event as a launch pad for pro-European rhetoric and policy.

Hitting out at the Hungarian-born billionaire George Soros, who stands accused by the Hungarian government of using his vast wealth to fund pro-mass migration organisations to create a “new, mixed, Muslimized Europe”, Orban said Brussels was in an “alliance against the people’s will” with the financier.

If Europe is to survive, says Orban it, as a bare minimum, must bear sufficient children at least to replace its own population.  The policy/plan used by some European nations to replace their declining  populations with immigrants--as Germany has done for decades--is madness.  
Speaking of this clash of cultures, Orban said: “the culture of migrants is opposed to European culture, conflicting ideas to not prevail at the same time”, and remarked that mass migration could not be the solution to economic problems. Doing as nations like Germany had for decades by importing foreign workers to prop up the economy, he compared to a man stranded on a desert island drinking sea water to survive: “That too is water, but the problem gets worse”.

Better, he said, was for European nations to have stable populations supported by birth rates that allowed for natural biological replacement. For Hungary to achieve that, the Prime Minister said, it would have to achieve a birth rate of 2.1 children per family — a figure presently unheard of among Europeans.
