The Chesterton Prophecies

  United States sovereignty and a semblance of American economic viability received a boost Thursday morning when the new version of Senate amnesty bill failed. American citizenship still means something. Surely, with over 80% of the country opposing amnesty, the bill is finally dead, once and for all.
I would not count on it.
It is safe to say that this bill will return with a vengeance, albeit in a more covert format. Perhaps it will be segmented as riders on other bills. Perhaps the amnesty provisions will be disguised and obscured within a border enforcement bill. It is difficult to predict the future tactics of the open borders crowd. However, you can bet that this attack on American sovereignty, culture and economics will not go quietly into the night until we change the people and political parties that are running this country into the ground.
Despite being almost a century old, G. K. Chesterton’s, The Flying Inn (1914), provides present day Americans with an opportunity to understand what is happening to their loss of culture and of national sovereignty. The book consists of a “fictional” account of how England had been stripped of its cultural identity. The book was written at the end of the British imperialistic period of dominance in which England had collapsed under the sheer weight of attempting to maintain its vast empire.
In the book, Chesterton maintains that England lost far more than its preeminent position as the world’s sole super power. He postulated that England had lost its national soul through the unintended integration of its culture with more “barbaric cultures” that it had previously conquered.
The protagonist in The Flying Inn, Dalroy, proclaimed that great nations have frequently followed a similar paradigm of progressive self-destruction:
  1. The great nation declares victory over the barbarians.
  2. The great nation begins to enjoy the fruits of cheap labor by employing the barbarians that it had conquered.
  3. The barbarians become so enmeshed into the great nation, that an alliance with barbarians is formed (e.g., de facto amnesty).  
  4. Assimilation is followed with the barbarians becoming a privileged class. Thus, the great nation is conquered.
Near the end of the book, almost every virtuous cultural tradition, of the great nation, comes under sharp criticism, while every cultural tradition emanating from the barbarians’ place of origin became praiseworthy. 
Certainly the relationship between the United States and various countries south of our border; parallels Chesterton’s stunningly accurate prophecies by describing what has happened to present day America . Consider the following parallels which strikingly correspond to Dalroy’s view of how empires crumble:
  1. The United States fulfills its “Manifest Destiny” mandate by provoking and winning a war with Mexico in order to gain a southern railroad route to California . The great nation was victorious. Dalroy’s first principle is fulfilled.
  2. The economies of the two countries bifurcate and the United States begins to enjoy the fruits of its imperialistic labors. The conquered people provides nearly 160 years of cheap labor which helps to fuel the economic growth of the United States . Guest workers and illegal immigrants trickle into the United States . Despite the comparatively low wages, more immigrants come north to experience the bountiful leftovers of their former conquerors. This trend continues to the point in which the original trickle of guest workers and illegal immigrants becomes a raging tsunami of humanity most of whom are seeking to experience the American dream at the expense of their former conquerors. The great nation employed those that it had conquered. Dalroy’s second principle is fulfilled.
  3. Average American citizens begin to note the loss of economic standing, culture and traditions. “Special privilege” programs, such as Totalization, free medical and free education, serve to fully integrate the former illegal aliens into the mainstream of American society. To frame the desired paradigm shift, legal terms such as “illegal alien” become likened to racial epitaphs uttered during the worst days of the old “Jim Crow” laws. The PC Police (i.e., the corporate media) label all Americans who desire to secure their borders, in this age of terrorism, as racists and xenophobic. The alliance has been formed. Dalroy’s third principle has been fulfilled.
  4. Illegal immigrant subgroups (e.g., Reconquista de Atzalan, MECHA) begin to proclaim that the takeover of America is moving forward and if the present occupants of this country do not like it; then these “Euros” can “go back to Europe .” (In this scenario, it’s not certain where American citizens whose historical roots lie in Africa, the Middle East, South America, Mexico, Panama, Canada, Asia, the Pacific Rim, the Caribbean, and most of all, Native Americans, are supposed to return to). At what point do we admit that the great nation of America has been conquered and is in the process of being successfully occupied?
Ray Charles could see that the United States has stage four cancer.
Although the Flying Inn is merely fiction, in reality, its tenets are being realized as nearly every tradition that Americans hold sacred, are coming under attack (e.g., the virtues and value of American citizenship); while everything from the illegal aliens’ point of origin is becoming more praiseworthy by the day (e.g., “We do the jobs that Americans won’t”). The propaganda lines have been drawn.
One other noteworthy scenario in Chesterton’s book is the ominous ending in which the principal Western democracy ends up merging with a Middle Eastern country.
