In the early 1990s, California’s pioneers in the battle against illegal immigration issue were facing a problem that the rest of the nation had not yet experienced: massive illegal immigration and the mutating effect it was having on every aspect of our communities. Many of us were looking forward five years, ten years (the turn of the century was still almost two decades into the future) predicting what the result was going to be if mass immigration wasn’t stopped.
“Demographics is Destiny” was coined in those days, referring to the inevitable changes that would occur because of the influx.
Recently, I spoke with Glenn Spencer of American Border Patrol, née American Patrol, and mentioned “Demographics is Destiny,” crediting Glenn with creating the term. He disagreed, saying that I was the one who first used the term. Regardless, I am sure there were many in California, and the country, who were working on the issue and predicted the inevitable impact on our communities, our country, and our culture of the huge influx of both legal and illegal immigrants, whether they used that exact term or not.
And after a quarter century of massive influx, both the concept and its predicted negative impact, the “Destiny,” have been proven true.
And now in 2017, there is another demographic that is also creating our destiny: the generation of Americans that was spawned by the 80 million Post-WW II Baby Boomers (1946 – 1964), the so-called Generation X (born largely between the mid-60s and early 80s).
While the Baby Boomers grew up in an era of relative world peace and prosperity, the work ethic and other ethics were/are part of our generation’s culture. We worked and helped continue to build the best country and culture in history.
The Generation Xers matured in an era of peace, with an expanding economy and declining morality, and a technological explosion that they experienced as teenagers. They knew few of the challenges that their parents or their grandparents had, and as a generation, tend to take our prosperity for granted, more so than their parents did. Their ambivalence about preserving our culture is apparent. Conversely, it seems that many are devoted to ripping our country and culture apart without any concept of the freedoms and prosperity that will be forever lost if they are successful. From this observation, comes a new meaning for the term, “Demographics is Destiny.”
We aging Baby Boomers are currently leaving the economy at the rate of 10,000 a day. And when we reach the average life expectancy of 79 years old in 2025, we will be dying off at the rate of 10,000 to 12, 000 a day. We must educate and recruit the following generations to the cause to which we have devoted the last quarter century of our lives. If we don’t, the decline of our culture, our country, and Western Civilization will be the inevitable result to the detriment and misery of billions of people now and in the future.
The demographic we need to focus on now is the demographic of Gen Xers who will be the ones to carry on the effort to preserve our heritage from the greedy and the race hustlers who want to continue the massive influx we have seen over the past three decades for their own selfish purposes without any concern about the longer-term effects.
Demographics is Definitely Destiny. And we need to use our knowledge, facts, and logic to convince those who have the ability to be convinced to join our effort, regardless of who resides in the White House.
You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life. [Winston Churchill.]
