Challenges of a European Future That is Experiencing Community Conflicts of Emerging Clashes of Inconsistent Cultures

Reader comment on item: Europe Tangles with Immigration

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Nov 3, 2022 at 14:06

The political quagmire that is modern Europe has long ago lost its relevance in self-determination in ancient rivalries stemming from lost racial identities and weakened defensive postures when considering the way old feudal kingdoms made alliances with one group of nation states; and other rivalries were measured in allegiances to particular religious adherencies.
England, from its ancient beginnings in the time alleged as Arthur's and springing away from Roman domination and other incursions of Saxon, Norman, Danish and back to French influences, has demonstrated a certain resilience in more modern times and spawned an empires' worth of colonial intersections in which much of what the world is experiencing today can trace its roots deeply there.
The French, in their own inimitable way, accomplished similar feats of colonial exploitations and in many respects, due to a innate national arrogance, precipitated certain ambivalent attitudes towards France from the regions so occupied and those ramifications are seen today. Each of the other European nations are similarly burdened with repercussions caused by the colonial remnants of European rule and todays' descendents of those colonial excursions can make an argument those influences are incumbent in the thought processes that provide incentives of exploring if life can, indeed, be better in the place from which such influences were ingrained in indigent populations. Of such is an immigrant's basis of hope in leaving home.
Though with differing cultural paradigms that were 'foreign' to the European model, similar cultural exchanges throughout central Asia were found to be incentives for migratory and marauding explorations from Mongolia to Turkiye and beyond. Extend conflicting British Empire's influences along with other European adventures around the Indian Sea and other maritime exploits and one might, just might, get some idea of why there are mixed emotions of who will fit in in any immigration situation anywhere in the world. Someone explain Japanese influences in Peru.
Africa, however, appears as more of an exporter of migrant populations for a variety of reasons many anthropoligists hav yet to thoroughly explain; that even the migration of Ethiopians with proclaimed Jewish heritage are involved in their own form of Aliyah and Israel is subjected to more issues of protecting its sovereignty beyind the superficial claims of Arab culture posing as 'Palestinians' under false assertions that a 'Palestine' ever existed as an independent nation. The rest of Africa is still under the cloud of colonial influences; yet insertions of Islamic claims after many convert to being Muslim from typically pagan persuasions are in evidence in ways that most civilizationists cannot entertain, let alone understand.
World societies are morphing from ancient influences to find some sense of how to be part of a world that has lost its moral compass to secularistic socialistic progressiveness and seeking to protect that is a challenge not too many are ready to accede to for the lack of understanding what kind of future that might bring.
