The torrents of illegal immigrants penetrating Europe are a telltale sign of the failure of other people and races to build decent societies where there is a modicum of good governance, the rights of the individual are respected, and serious efforts are undertaken by the State as well as by its citizens to make the best use of the available resources to enhance chances for everybody.
As I have stated before, there are two dynamics behind the massive flux of illegals towards "Fortress Europe". First, the waves from Africa are caused by the failure of the socialist model, which post-decolonisation was eagerly promoted/exported by the First World's leftists. Kaunda in Zambia, Rawlings in Ghana, Machel in Mozambique, Nasser in Egypt, Nyerere in Tanzania... they all tried the leftist recipes, they all failed.
The irony is that there is perhaps light at the end of the tunnel for quite a good many of these countries, especially - I'm not kidding - sub-Saharan ones. Indeed, economic growth in quite a few of these countries hovers around 4.5 to 5 per cent - courtesy capitalism which is finally being discovered as the prime engine of economic development. Many of the blacks on the rickety boats crossing the Mediterranean actually hail not from sub-Sahara Africa, but from the Sahel and West and East Africa - not surprisingly countries where the second factor in the exodus comes into view: islam.
Indeed, the second component of the immigrant wave which finds its origin primarily in the Middle East is caused by the failure of islam as a societal model. There's no need to elaborate here - the naked truth is staring us in the eyes. Only leftists can't see it because of the pink or red hue of their glasses.
Frenzied efforts to try to provide shelter for the hordes besieging our continent will not help. In Belgium's case, for instance, it is terribly disappointing to learn that the responsible Minister, Theo Francken, of the supposedly center-right N-VA party, has announced his intention to provide thousands upon thousands of new places for the arrivals in derelict hotels or unused army barracks by 2016. A move like that will only have a reinforcing effect upon the migratory waves.
Not until we are able to call a spade a spade and pinpoint the 'root causes' to failed societal models in the immigrants' countries, will any serious progress towards solving the refugee crisis be made.
In the meantime, native Europeans who don't have the benefit of living in the posh quarters Europe's "elites" prefer, will pay the price for the mayhem.
