Europe is going under right before our very eyes Bent Jensen is told by a cultural historian in an interview which has now become this article. The conclusion is that it is the voters who have laid the foundation for this disaster.
“We are living in the end times,” says my friend the cultural historian. “I’m serious, Europe’s days are numbered. I am glad that I won’t get to experience the final, last convulsions before it’s over. It won’t be a pleasant sight. My wife and I are preparing our children to emigrate. ”
“Have you gone mad?” I reply. “All is going really well! Europeans have never had it so good. We have both a wealth and freedom that is historically unique. ”
“This is true,” concedes our culture historian. “Our parents and grandparents and many generations before them have created these unique free, orderly and prosperous societies. But yours and my generation have put everything at risk. And the damage we have caused is irreversible as societal researchers have told us. We have passed the point where the any change in the nations of Europe can be reversed. Now we can only document and try to explain how and why just one generation of Europeans have managed to squander 1,000 years of culture. ”
