A woman I met in rural Estonia once told me, “Cities are the end of people.” She was referring to the destitution she and her husband found while spending a year working abroad in Paris. “The homeless were taking a shit in the middle of our street. Paris is great if you have a lot of money. Then, you can have everything you want. But for everyone else? Cities are the end of people.”
The couple moved back to the Estonian countryside, enjoying a small-town life where the air is still fresh, and people have familiar faces. But the hell that is found in residential Paris is no different from life in San Francisco, Athens, or Rotterdam. Venturing just outside of the brushed-up tourist hotspots, people in every major city around the world encounter the same dumpster-fire poverty.
Cities are the end of people. Cites have, in effect, become holding cells for the billions of surplus humans who cannot live on land of their own. There is a shortage of land to farm but no shortage of floors a highriser can have. Though a life in the countryside requires one to have one’s wits about them, people barely smart enough to pull a lever once every twenty seconds can still land jobs in Brooklyn.
Cties, not the countryside, have dumbed people down. Education is domestication. A massive service economy was invented to supply hordes of unidimensional people with what they need for their survival. Is your lightbulb broken? Call the electrician. Is your sink plugged? Call the plumber. As long as you have the income to afford these amenities, your mind is free to over-specialize in some high-grossing though otherwise completely meaningless activity.
Rapid urbanization around the world began in Europe, right after the fall of the Roman Empire, when the Empire’s former settlements along the rivers Rhine, Danube, and Thames started absorbing massive numbers of people. Europeans had long saturated the countryside, and mothers were now sending their surplus children to the cities.
This development lasted for several centuries and didn’t end until after the Industrial Age. The white mass migrations to the cities came to a halt around the 1970s, when white populations stopped growing altogether. White women simply stopped having large families, mainly due to contraceptives being popularized by the government.
But an aging population cannot provide for itself, so borders had to be opened to welcome in masses of “temporary” immigrants from all around the world. They never left. And so, as the white inhabitants, the ones that had learned to restrict their births, began aging and dying off, while people from all over the world began taking their places in urban apartment complexes. Rotterdam, Antwerp, London, and Paris now each have an over 50% non-white population.
Cities are, first and foremost, artificial habitats that allow various human races to live comfortably in regions they didn’t evolve for. For example, well-heated homes are what allow black Africans to live through the Scandinavian winters. Air-conditioned buildings and are what allow white people to live and work in Texas.
What is the purpose of all these cities? Well, now that they’re here, and now that the majority of human beings is living in cities, mindless self-preservation has become the sole purpose of cities. Cities, mind you, cannot exist as static enterprises. They have to expand continuously to stay alive. If people already living in cities still want to have children, besides the immigrants they are absorbing, the city shall have to keep building more highrisers.
There is an end to growth, though. Even if we could turn the whole earth into a giant city, a concrete Death Star, there would still come a point in time when the human population growth must come to an end. And perhaps it is coming to an end, in our own time.
In fact, it is coming to an end in our time. There is evidence for this claim. The gay/lgbt movement, for example, being pushed by corporate & state media, serves as a simple way of slowing down the population growth of cities. More gays, fewer kids.
Urban folks who are indoctrinated to internatlize this movement’s tenets can only respond with anger toward rural folks who are still allowed (or able) to have families.
Likewise, the hatred spouted by the American Antifa (anti-fascist) movement primarily stems from this hatred, as well. Remember that anti-fascism really means anti-groupism, as in the family group (a fascio is Italian for bundle or sheaf). Since many urban youngsters cannot, and will never, have families of their own, they can only respond with a vile hatred toward those who still can: outsiders, those “rich people”, those “privileged people”, and those living in the countryside.
BlackLivesMatter, LGBT and Antifa are three expressions of the same thing: Urban populations’ inability to reproduce. When cities stop expanding, their growing populations must learn to accept a less meaningful life. Many, of course, will not accept the loss of wealth and freedoms they have grown accustomed to.
It is foreseeable, therefore, that large armies of disgruntled youngsters, angered by their own condemnation to remain childless, shall revolt against all whome they see as rich and privileged. That means people who do still have the means to have families would do well to begin leaving the cities.
Even so, a white middle-class exodus from the cities will only postpone the problem’s conclusion. It will not solve it. It will buy time. Eventually, the disgruntled urban hordes shall come for the countryside to reap whatever is left to rape and steal there.
And then, we shall have to flee into the woods and run for the hills ,and wait, patiently, for hell to freeze over. The urban world is coming to an end. The new world shall be built on the old world’s fertile ashes.
