An Empire of Four Hundred Million

There is a book for sale (32 euros) at Philippe Randa's website, where books on a wide variety of topics - usually historical - can be purchased. The one in question is entitled Un Empire de Quatre Cents Millions d'Hommes, l'Europe  (An empire of four hundred million men, Europe). Very little is said about the book that was written in 2007, and I have no intention right now of reading it, but here in capsule form, is the theme of the book by its author Jean Thiriart:

Europe has everything to be the first nation of the world: it only lacks political unity. Everything will be possible for Europe when it has achieved its political unity. The key to our destiny resides in these two words: political unity.

It is the only thing that is lacking. Once it is achieved, everything else will be an extra addition, because everything else already exists. A people of four hundred million men must demand a destiny befitting its dimension.

Tomorrow we will cast the weight of our four hundred million men, determined, united, disciplined, onto the scales of History.

So here in a few words is the master plan. The nations must go. The Empire will prevail. As we already know, this will be facilitated by the propaganda complex of white guilt, self-hatred, self-abnegation, in addition to the already existing anti-Christian, more specifically anti-Catholic, resentment that has existed in Europe, France in particular, since the Revolution, and before. We can throw into this mix the policy of population substitution, anti-racism terrorism and the imposition of racial "métissage" to complete the inventory of weapons being used by proponents of Europe against the European peoples.

It will be easy to destroy the nations. But it will not be easy, or even possible, to install, in their stead, a nirvana of "disciplined" European political unity, as this author fantasizes. And perhaps that is good. Chaos will be preferable to a smoothly-running totalitarian mega-State, ripped from its roots, forcibly stripped of its spiritual source, and looking only ahead, to an unattainable socially perfect future. Never looking back, over its shoulder, at the long torturous road from barbarity to civilization that millions traveled on, slowly and painfully building social and cultural institutions that gave the different peoples their comfort and their pride, and their raison d'ĂȘtre.

Some Europeans want to wipe the slate clean. They hate the past, and want it to "go away" and leave them alone with their dreams. They will be chattering about this dream for the next two thousand years.

Lawrence Auster has requested that I post the following comment, since there was a problem with Blogger's comment feature:

The passage that you quote is so extraordinary, because the supposed mission of the European Union is to undo the bad, chauvinistic, power-seeking nationalism of yore and replace it with a humanitarian, transnational entity dedicated to the equal rights of all. But in fact Thiriart speaks the language of the despised old nationalism, indeed, even the language of fascist nationalism, with its national arrogance, its overweening sense of a national destiny to rule Europe, and its menacing-sounding assertion of its external power and its internal discipline. The only difference from the old fascist nationalism is that this new version relates to the entire "nation" of "Europe." But of course, the old fascist nationalism also asserted its right to unite and rule all of Europe. Which leads to a second difference between the old and the new: this new fascist nationalism is explicit about its destiny to rule the entire human race.

Note from Tiberge:

If one believes the article in Wikipedia, Jean Thiriart (1922-1992) was some kind of a crackpot:
