If you had to leave your country for good, would you rather live in Mexico or Somalia (assuming those were the 2 options)?

Not denying we have a problem, but Europe's is far more serious.

That's where your wrong kiddo.

Donald Trump hasn't even built a fence on the Southern Border and the migrant caravans that where coming in ever since late last year haven't been stopped at all. In fact, the migration flood into the USA has intensified.

It's actually the other way around. The USA has a much worse migration problem than Europe. If you think i'm just some random non-American who doesn't know what he's saying, take a look at a post by your fellow American captain_shane on Page 3695 of the Donald Trump Thread.

Great but you didn't address my actual point, which was that the people coming into the US are far more compatible with western civilization (coming from a quasi-western society themselves) than are the people coming into Europe. Again, would you rather live in Mexico or Somalia?

Since this is a thread about Germany, the right choice here would be between Mexico and Turkey. There are about 5 million Turks in Germany, the largest migrant minority by far.

Turkey is a better place to live than Mexico, by a wide measure. Very low crime rates, cleaner cities, far lower levels of corruption. Istanbul is practically a first world European city, with high levels of public hygiene (clean drinking water etc), where you're treated with respect by the locals and not ripped off by every other taxicab.

RE: Reflections On The Loss Of Germany's Cultural Legacy
Yes, Turks, on average, are closer to Westerners than Mexicans. In addition, if it's current political situation were different, it would have a very strong case for EU membership. The last 7 years, however, stalled that development.

Overall, Turkey is fairly safe, unlike Mexico. I've also noticed that many Turks don't like being associated with Arabs. Similarly to how Germans or Norwegians wouldn't like to be called Romanians just because they're white.

RE: Reflections On The Loss Of Germany's Cultural Legacy
The Turkish population in Germany has been there for decades. Most of the recent arrivals in the last ~5 years are not Turkish.

A better comparison would be long-established immigrant populations (Turks in Germany/Mexicans in the US) vs recent surges (Central Americans in the US/the dregs of the entire Islamic world in Germany), in both cases the newer arrivals are far more problematic--but even then, while MS-13 and the like are a legitimate problem, we don't have roving Honduran rape gangs at every major public event in the US nor are we unable to go 3 months without a Guatemalan running over a crowd in a box truck or going on a stabbing rampage in a major public square.

I see the exact opposite. At least Mexicans are Christian, and therefore have a western civilization background. Yes, they are different from legacy white American culture, but Mexicans are like us at a certain level.

In comparison, Turks are muslim, middle easterners. They have no identification with European culture. The immigrant percentages in a lot of European countries are far lower than the ratios in the US, but the cultural difference and the level of hostile agression are far higher.

The issue is more complex than that. The successful westernized Turks stay in Turkey, Christian ones as well. But the backwards Muslims from Anatolia emigrate to Germany.

Most likely Parkinson, and uncontrollable tremors like these mean that she's several years into it, maybe 3-5 years from her first symptoms. For now she's probably on L-dopa, the doses will have to gradually increase for a few more years, until their effect fades, at which point she might have to go through an electrode treatment, which will kick the can another 5-10 years back.

I'm 3rd gen German.

I teach in a military university. I was recently brought in and "counseled" because I had an Imperial double-eagle decal on my coffee cup. A student was 'triggered'. Because it "felt Nazi to her."

true story.

I told them I felt like I was being accused of "TWG". They said what?

"Teaching While German."

RE: Reflections On The Loss Of Germany's Cultural Legacy
I passed through Köln last week and the area around the Dom was stacked with ugly police portacabin/shipping container style "offices" and there must have been about 7 paddy wagons parked up, ready for deployment.

I had to get to the reisezentrum ticket office when it opened at 6:00 am and the shopping area under the station proper was a mass of not particularly Germanic looking humanity who appeared to be living there.

It was fairly heart breaking, as I remember the area as picture postcard pretty when my wife and I holidayed there in 2011.

The same process is occurring in my own country but the stark contrast with the memory of my 2011 visit was particularly jarring.

Ironically, I wanted to get home in time to attend a performance of Beethoven's 7th Symphony at the Liverpool Philharmonic. There was a mixed play of emotions running through my mind as I sat in the audience listening.

Last time I was in Germany it was rough. Homeless everywhere. Migrants everywhere. This was in the south of Germany. African migrants were openly mocking my German friends and bearing them to fight back. This was all happening while I was sipping a beer it was indeed very strange. The Germans at this point are so nice and warm even tell the Africans that they're behaving in a very bad way for guests to behave. Parts of Germany look just as vibrant and multicultural is wanted us.

RE: Reflections On The Loss Of Germany's Cultural Legacy
Germany is losing its cultural heritage because it was not willing to fight for it. Yeah everyone makes mistakes, but that does not mean they have to destroy their own heritage. Some lessons have to be learned the hard way it seems.

Btw, if we are comparing Turks vs. Mexicans, I would say it is a wash:

Many of the Turks out there are actually Semitic Levantines and Greeks whose genetic composition is somewhat similar to that of Southern Europeans. There are a minority who are actually descended from the true Turkic tribes from Central Asia. My experience with Turks is that many of them have a bit of thug in them but they can hold their own intelligence wise compared to the average American (in some cases better), keep their religion private (although they are proud to be Muslim and understand that some of the practices are Judeo-Arab BS), proud of their history and culture and can be very productive citizens.

With Mexicans, a bit of a mixed bag, but similar to that of the Turks. Mexicans can be some of the most ruthless, savage and cunning people out there in that they are opportunistic in nature, will never back down from a fight (even to the death) and are relentless with respect to their goals but also they can be some of the most intelligent, compassionate, religious, loyal and hard-working people known on the Earth. Also, it is true that many Mexicans (those who have lived here in the States for a while) and those who are mestizo ancestry and higher literally hate illegals more than whites, so much that they would not hesitate to shoot them on site if they could get away with it.

Coming back to the original posting after more than 3 years, I definitely see the good intention of repillage, but need to correct certain things.

Not seeing the forest for the trees. Not a particular mistake here, but keep in mind that white genocide is being targeted against all white nations. Negroization in America is far more advanced, and with the loss of ethnicity, a "loss of cultural legacy" results, and has already resulted.

(02-29-2016 06:31 PM)redpillage Wrote:  its films were groundbreaking (e.g. Fritz Lang),
Not seeing the Jews (as a distinct ethnic group). Fritz Lang was Jewish, not German. When the nation economically and culturally resurged as a unity in 1933, he left the country. Why do you think Fritz Lang's Metropolis is so hailed by the Jewish media? Because he's Jewish.

(02-29-2016 06:31 PM)redpillage Wrote:  Süskind
Süskind is an Ashkenasim Jewish name. If you mean Patrick Süskind, the author of "Das Parfum" (Perfume: The Story of a Murderer), I have no clear evidence that he's Jewish, but enough evidence to know he's no ordinary German who identifies and lives as such. He hated Germany's unity of 1990.

Wrong, Marx (Moses Mordechai Levy) is not German, his ancestry is thoroughly Jewish. He descends from a long line of Jewish rabbis. He was rich, connected to the Rothschilds, the Philips company, and left the country.
(Ancestry source)

Wittgenstein is also Jewish, not German. Typically Jewish, he was also a homosexual, and left the country. Apart from such corrections, of course I appreciate your respect for German philosophers.

Quite frankly the thought of that cultural treasure being destroyed and eventually forgotten in time horrifies me. We simply cannot allow for this to happen. In order for Germany to survive - in whatever shape or form we need to assure that its cultural legacy somehow survives.
Who really "overran" Germany were Americans, Britons and the Bolshevist Red Army in 1945. Just like "Islam", these were just the tools, however. White genocide as a continuous process in all white countries to weaken them has nothing to do with "Islam", but with putting several groups of non-Jews in a fight against each other:
  • Left vs. right
  • Allies vs. Axis powers
  • Catholics vs. protestants
  • Muslims vs. Christians
  • Men vs. women

The road and water situation seems pretty third world, but the houses seem nicer and I like the fact that they are able to have so many kids.

As I get older, I find myself dreaming of cutting the cord of city life and moving to a more rural location where I can buy a big piece of land and built my home. Maybe I am romanticising rural life, and Roosh has written an excellent article on its shortcomings as well. This village shows that its not easy to find the best of both worlds.

Like the Amish in America. And many other immigrants.

Remember that Germans were the #1 immigrant group to come to the US especially in the 1860s-1880s when the US government would give 800 acres of the best farmland on the planet to anybody who had the balls to sail the atlantic and go to the prairie to stake a claim. Millions of Germans (& Swedes, Poles, Danes) came, entire villages would uproot and come to the US midwest to claim enormous swathes of land and found dynasties. The german women would have 10 kids often -- clean air, infinite food, healthy living -- those kids grew up enormous, every one of them could use a rifle by age 6. This heartland was the engine that powered the USA.

Of course now the corporate scumbags are destroying the heartland, so these people are MAGA supporters

RE: Reflections On The Loss Of Germany's Cultural Legacy
This is the real picture of modern German culture legacy.

In postwar West Germany, every film made, every magazine published and other media outlets had to submit a proposal to an American rabbi based in NYC for censorship. Film directors had to write about how evil their culture was (is) in order to be allowed to produce their material, and that ethos of submission and self-hate permeated the entire German culture industry.

This explains why there is so much guilt and self-hate ingrained into their culture, it's completely by design.

As well, porn was pushed very hard on Germans from the 1960s on, with funded projects like the Schulmädchen-Report, degenerate schoolgirl-centered porn that was promoted pretty hard and opened the way to a huge local porn industry. Same dynamics in Sweden, where the main actors in that industry were Jewish.

Without this intensive barrage of cultural engineering, you wouldn't have mass migration/replacement and so much self-hating policies being imposed on the natives by the likes of Merkel and Barbara Lerner Spectre.

Perhaps one of my favorites was the way they chose to cool cities down in summer times. The baechle is essentially tiny canals that help divert rivers through the city. It takes some of the water from the major river, and sends it street side through the center.

As we all know, moving water is cool and helps cool the surrounding cobbles as well as giving people a place to cool their feet. All things that help make life more comfortable.

Germans have given back to each other so much over the centuries. They work hard together, for each other. Knowing that they all gain from this.

Nonsense. This is in Freiburg and I live there part of the year. It was created for fighting fires and secondary to provide drinking water for animals during markets. Cooling surrounding cobbles? People in Germany wear shoes.

Now it's there for nothing more than tourist, historical purpose to give the city something to be remembered by.

Further, Freiburg is mostly a shit city run by the "Green party" eco leftists filled with Germany's version of hipsters.

RE: Reflections On The Loss Of Germany's Cultural Legacy
I am Canadian and my heritage (as a gross simplification) is Low Land Scottish. As a Canadian I was forced to learn French for 8 years of public school. I resented that; I am from Toronto where more people speak Chinese (as an aside, I now live in China) however in high school we were freed from that but had to have a language credit. I choose German.

Awesome language and awesome teacher - to Van Halen levels, but that is a separate story.

English is a Germanic language and I am tempted to rant because I teach English, but not here, and not now.

I recall reading one internet wag who estimated that Goethe was the smartest intellectual in history ever.

I taught a course on international business and one part involved cultural differences.

Let's just say the Germans were my favorite.

But enough about me and feelings.

Do what you have to do to keep Germany true to its primordial values.
