Post Why the Sun Is Setting in Europe

To coin a phrase, the lights are going out all over Europe. The carnival is over. Our civilization is coming to an end. And there's a reason it is.

There is a trifling amount of butterfat in milk 3.9 percent in Holstein milk, 5.4 percent in Jersey and Guernsey milk and yet without it milk tastes like chalk dissolved in water, there would be no French cooking, no butter to put on your bread, no cheese and no milk chocolate from Switzerland. It's the same with hops in beer; a trace amount transforms barley water into the world's most popular beverage.

My point is that the key ingredient in some things is critical to their very existence. Take stainless steel for instance. The basic alloy, type 304 (18-8), possesses a minimum of 18% chromium and 8% nickel, combined with a maximum of 0.08% carbon. Take away the chrome and nickel and you don't have stainless steel anymore.

We know this is also true in biology because of the great discoveries in animal breeding and horticulture where a few individual genetic strains have transformed both plants and animals into stronger, hardier, beefier versions of themselves. And, despite its bad reputation, we know it's also true with human populations in the branch of science called eugenics. Women tend to marry strong handsome men because they want strong beautiful babies. Women also practice positive eugenics when they abort babies suffering from identified diseases, and for the same reasons, call it eugenics on the micro level.

But what about eugenics on the macro level? What would happen to a society if it selected for passivity and conducted a mass event, or several mass events, to end the genetic lines of the strongest, most aggressive and most virile members of that society? What if we were to call these gigantic, and horrible, human experiments WWI and WWII?

In effect, that's what Europe did, starting with the heady days of August 1914 when everyone thought the war would be over by Christmas and ending with the end of WWII in Reims in the early hours of May 7, 1945. I mention the city because it's just 180 kms from Arras, which I've pictured last year and three years into WWI. You can see from the colour photo the town square and its impressive City Hall has been completely rebuilt, brick by brick.

What you can't see are the bodies, now decomposed, and the bones, still there, that lie under the wreckage and under nearby Vimy Ridge to the north. Those bodies were first those of volunteers in the German, British, French, and Canadian armies; the men most ready and eager to fight. Then they're composed of the conscripts, ready but not eager, who followed. Those who were not healthy young males were excluded from military service. Their bloodlines continued, but the volunteers, the first killed in the first battles, their genetic inheritance returned to the earth, blasted to death, bleeding into the chalk of the Somme.

Post #1 impending implosion of the EU

By James Tapsfield, Political Editor For Mailonline

Published: 07:56 EST, 4 September 2016 | Updated: 08:10 EST, 4 September

Europe is 'close to the limits' of its ability to accept waves of refugees and economic migrants, one of the EU's most senior officials has warned.

European council president Donald Tusk delivered the stark message as he joined world leaders at the G20 summit in China.

The comments will fuel the raging row within the EU over how to deal with the huge movements of people displaced by war and poverty.

Thousands of migrants have been making perilous journeys across the Mediterranean hoping to find safety and a better life.
