This and another book that'll I'll write about soon were meant to be the first 2 book reviews on Peak Stupidity. Now, keep in mind that this prophetic novel was written in the 1975(!) by Mr. Jean Raspail (yes, it's a man ... the French are like that - no addadictomy involved here) with a great translation by Norman Shapiro. Yes the translator IS important, as this is not an action novel, and the best part of this book is the descriptions of the thoughts and discussions of the French population on major turmoil coming via a million destitute .-Indians fixin' to land on the Riviera with more boatloads to come. Censorship, Inc. has not yet taken "Camp of the Saints" down from Amazon.com ... yet.
Anwyay, today, VDare featured this review by Mr. Chris Roberts that is good as anything Peak Stupidity would post. Here is the same review posted on unz.com where there is a place for comments. It seems like some excerpts from this review are in order, then a few comments on behalf of Peak Stupidity.
Instead of gaudily focusing on black thugs, Arab terrorists, or conniving Asians, The Camp of the Saints puts the white race in front of a mirror to ask, “Why do you bow to those who wish you harm and who promise you subjugation?” This question takes up most of the book because the Third World does not reach Europe until the very end. The story is mainly about what goes on in the minds of whites as the “armada” of aliens slowly approaches.Does this sound familiar at all to you? Globalist elites replacing the people? Borders that are purposefully not enforced letting blank million ... anyone? anyone? Twenty to twenty-five million illegals in. Corrupt churches taking taxpayers money to resettle .. anyone? Anyone? 10's of thousands of Somalians ... in Minney ... Anyone? Anyone? ... apolis.
Mr. Raspail brilliantly depicts the weakness of the West’s elites. Even as millions of non-whites who share no language, culture, or religion with Europe approach, media and government alike welcome this coming dawn that will end the West’s present Dark Age.
Remember, the book was written 42 years back. It's incredibly prophetic! The reviewer goes on:
All the suicidal Western concepts are there: the idea that diversity is redemption, the guilt about wealth and comfort, pathological altruism—all with a curious veneer of ambivalence. What does it matter? We’ve had our day in the sun. To care about survival would be prejudice.
Yes, that seems to be the attitude of the majority. All that guilt will go away once the SHTF though, but kinda' late.
It is all too familiar, and a mark of incredible prescience that a novel written two generations ago in another country has a cast of characters immediately recognizable to any American in the current year. The Camp of the Saints even has good-hearted, normal white citizens suspicious of the coming changes, but paralyzed by dishonest media and the fear of social stigma.Indeed! Now, the ideas mentioned in this next paragraph of the Mr. Roberts' review meshes with what Peak Stupidity has state multiple times but summed up here with regard to theories of long-term conspiracies.
The book’s strength is its unwillingness to settle for easy answers. There is no cabal of Jews or bankers behind our race’s suicide. The bias of the media is not concocted by a conspiracy. Christianity is not a disease of the mind, but a sociological reality. The villains are not all perverts or pedophiles; the heroes are not flawless and square jawed. The Camp of the Saints takes stock of the world as it is, and then thrusts a crisis upon it to see what would happen. The author has said that he didn’t know the story’s ending when he started.
OK, well, that is about 1/2 of the review so you may as well go read it if you've come this far.
