in response to reader comment: The assumptions are incorrect

Dear KW,

You seem to be trying to argue details, while ignoring the major points of the original article, or perhaps you didn't understand the original points.

In summary, the ruling class of Europe has so many different fears and a lack of creative thinking, combined with blaming the US for their problems, that the Europeans refuse to deal with the real problems of their economies, and the attempts they have made have created the seeds of the countries' destruction in the forms we currently are familiar. They should have planned for a steady state of numbers of peoples, and created an Economy that would work without imported hostile workers. And, until they make that change the Europeans are on the road to their own destuction.

I think the original author missed one of the more important problems, which is the state dominance of the media in most countries of europe. The european media is used by the political entitled class to protect their interests, while they do nothing to fix the problems of Europe, while the media is used to feed the same lies that the US is the cause of all the evil in the world and europe as a way of seperating the european masses from understanding that their problems are of their own leaders creation, and can only be fixed by them. Both the ruling classes and the indoctrinated masses prefer not to face their problems, but to blame them all on the US.
