„Is the death of a religious-based culture inevitable once a society reaches general affluence? When a nation has overcome the hardships of its infancy and the struggles of its adolescence and manhood, and begins to produce a life of ease and luxury, does it naturally succumb to a disease of the soul that leads to decadence, decline, and death? “America is the only country that has gone from barbarism to decadence without civilization in between,” said Oscar Wilde.42 Did the man have a point?“ The Death of the West: How Dying Populations and Immigrant Invasions Imperil Our Country and Civilization

„We are two countries, two peoples. An older America is passing away, and a new America is coming into its own. The new Americans who grew up in the 1960s and the years since did not like the old America. They thought it a bigoted, reactionary, repressive, stodgy country.

To true believers in the revolution, the Right is not just wrong; the Right is evil.“ The Death of the West: How Dying Populations and Immigrant Invasions Imperil Our Country and Civilization

„this is not the country we grew up in. This is a different country. And given where America is headed morally and culturally, we are not far from a day when traditionalist Catholics will be saying, “This isn’t my country anymore.“ Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?
