Could not disagree more with your comments regarding ethnonationalism. For my position please watch Bill Murray in Stripes as he exhorts his fellow Ameeeeeerican Soljers. Comic it may be but his comparison of Americans to mutts is spot on. Purebred we are not but like many great breeds Americans have been fashioned out of a mix. Visiting my in laws this Christmas out of 16 people only 2 did not have a parent or grandparent who was not born in another country. We had ethnic Russians and Cheks, Swiss and Ukranians. There were 4 or 5 Christian demoninations represented plus a couple of Jews. Yet if I asked anybody there what they were, they would all have said American.

Very interesting, Derb. This presents an interesting problem to consider in light of the calls from those on the left to make better use of our "soft" power. Almost all of the areas you mentioned are elements of soft power, and each one is in decline. When one thinks of non-military solutions to many of our foreign challenges, the shortcomings of our soft power are apparent.
If we cannot police the Southern border, cannot prevent massive theft of intellectual property, cannot even invent a lot of that intellectual property here anymore, cannot summon the will to instruct people in the common culture, cannot seriously threaten adversaries economically and financially given our debtor position, believe that energy policy consists of sending a cabinet member to brown nose the House of Saud into another increase in oil production . . . ., then our soft power is a joke and we fall back on the hard power to deal with overseas annoyances.

Many of the failures you cite reinforce each other. For example, liberals have used their control of media and the academy during the past several decades to create legions of citizens with poor critical thinking skills. That has translated directly into poor leadership on the national level. It's a Gordian Knot of dysfunction, abetted by the failure to impart our children with an understanding of American history and culture.
This situation will change only if people start thinking for themselves and stop deferring to the political and cultural elites in New York, San Francisco and Washington.

This is an interesting piece but I see some major flaws in it.
1. The time span is wrong. It will take at least another three generations for us to collapse. Even liberals want to be Americans. They simply redefine it on their terms. This is also true for immigrants. Until this changes or numbers become overwhelming, we will still survive. Hence, I see 2 generations or 50 years as more reasonable.
As I have written in the past, the Goths have crossed the Danube, Hadrianople awaits.
2. The ethnocentric core the US did not reign supreme in 1960. That is the year that they ceded dominance.

Derbyshire marshals persuasive evidence for his gloomy thesis in all but his attempts to draw parallels between the US and USSR. The USSR was never a union of republics in any rational sense; it was an empire of conquered and stolen countries delivered to Russia in the greatest series of human slaughters thus far known to man. Marxist doctrine was merely the form, the back story of popular parlance, for Kremlin dictatorship by death-dealing. When blood ceased pouring through the hands of Stalin and his successors, the soviet empire inexorably fell away. Sorry, Derb. For the US there is not the slightest lesson to be learned from evanescent memories of the murderous USSR.

Looking in from outside (as a very liberal Canadian) I have to say that that the U.S. appears to be the most powerful rogue state in the world today and the prospect of it breaking up is one I would greet will considerable relief. Some of your northern blue states would make great provinces, or at least better neighbours it not hitched to the scarier conservative elements in your country.

Excellent. I'm still a little unsure about what to say - but I feel like I need to say something...
Well - here I go... My grandfather was born in Kansas and put up for adoption at a very early age, and with his adoptive parents in pre-depression America, he knew his second-class status inside of his own semi-wealthy family. He grew up a very motivated individual - a real rags to riches sort of thing - graduating top of his class at CU Boulder ( I think that's the one...) and went straight out into the world with his new wife and business partner after his pilot days in the service had ended. He and his business partner, Bill started working for General Foods, Latin America. The two of them were sent down to Venezuela ( I think ) and within the first week, the 'head' of the project had a heart-attack and had to come back to the US. My grandfather and Bill were asked to come back as well - the project was a no-go until further notice.
And they both refused, insisting they could set up the brand-new plant/facility without a supervisor. And they did it. They did it because they didn't know until they were successful, that it could not be done as far as anyone in GM was concerned - until that point. The two went on to travel back and forth between the US and Latin America - moving their 5+ children families with them. Venezuela, Columbia, Cuba, and Mexico City. They went to Hong Kong, Africa, Europe, and elsewhere pursuing business interests and opportunites as they would find them. They wanted to be the men they were - and did it on their own. Paying for college with the military, making business happen, and raising the families they knew they needed to. All was not perfect - that is rarely the case. It was very hard, but they did it...
My father was also born in Kansas ( the only child to be born in the US ) second eldest of 5. He grew up in Latin American countries holding the same men to ideology that we do in the states - except his role models were Latin American figures. My father tells of the weeks of angry meetings with Fidel that my grandfather endured - and what it was like to be one of the last American families to leave Cuba, with military escort, and gunfire in the near distance. My father grew up with the ideals of countries and peoples fighting for change and justice, and all that comes with it. When my father came to the US as a senior in high school, it was the first American school he had attended since kindergarten, in the rural Four Corners of the Southwest. And he wanted to be a part of something bigger than himself, a part of the community. His siblings were just coming to be aware of the differences they were seeing...
Vietnam. My dad enlisted to avoid the draft and the potential of being 'assigned' to the front lines and was stationed in Frankfurt for the first year of his military career. He walked on both sides of the Berlin wall as an American soldier and after some time ( about 10 months shy of his 2 year stint ), he was informed that he was to identify and escort his older brother's body back to the US. He was the one who had to present to my grandfather his brother - the eldest son - who had commited suicide during his service. My father returned to the military, and became a pacifist. Drugs, enlightenment, and a refusal to respect the uniform worn by his superior officers bought him a dishonorable discharge - a complete, and nearly unheard of mercy for his actions, he avoided courtmarshal and sentencing.
Upon his return to the US, my father then found religion - and was so sincere in his efforts, that my grandparents also found religion at that time. He dilignetly studied the teachings of Christ, and he found that they led to Mohommed [sic], and studied the Koran with the same passion for the truth, and that led him to the Bahai Faith. To this day my father is one of the most knowledgeable people when it comes to religion that I, or most that meet him, have ever seen. He can not only quote biblical verses from the Bible, but can relate that quote directly to any established religion on Earth - Zoroastrianism, Buddhism, Hinduism, Judea, Christian, Islam, Babi, and Bahai. The Golden Rule is the Golden Rule in every religion. Every religion. My grandparents remained strictly Christian, and prayed my father would see the error of his ways every day for the rest of their lives.
My father met my mother in Colorado and were married within 3 weeks of their first meeting, and despite the conflict of religion between the two families ( Bahai, Irish Catholic, Christian ), they received the blessings from both sides of the families. My father went to Adams State College in Alamosa, where I was born, and by the time I was four we lived on a lot in a subdivision of recently released National Forest Land - he became a Real Estate Broker and by the time I was six, my father had two Realtor of the Year awards, $140,000 of home and property, a beautiful wife, and four children. He had reached the American Dream just as my grandfather had. Everything came easier to my father than it did for my grandfather, but that's how it was supposed to work. He had done very well for himself at 27 - and then the real estate market crashed in the area...
I asked my dad once if we were rich - when I could tell that we were well off - at about 8 years old. "As long as we love each other, we will always be rich.", was his answer. And he meant it - even when we lost everything. Everything. The house, the property, the income.. It took a couple of years to really hit, but I know what it is like to not have electricity, to have to carry water for baths, and to eat beans for nearly a year. I knew my dad had never cared about money, and this was shown to me as neither he nor his siblings would ever enter a business enterprise again, regardless of the business plans given to them by my grandfather. My parents separated due to income, and the four of us children went with my mother to Denver to live with my uncle while my father stayed behind to build us back up. I went to 5 different Junior High Schools that year - protecting my siblings from an abusive uncle in my mothers absence at work. I was the man of the family at 13.
My parents are still married, and though we never had that kind of money again - we always stayed together from then on...
And then I rebelled. 4.0 student, watching over my siblings while my father worked at a group home where African American and Hispanic juveniles were placed - for crimes like assaulting and hospitalizing police officers, and my mother worked at a retail store, spending most of her income on clothes from the store for us, and on the dress requirements of her own job. And I rebelled. I would sneak out and drink, and run-away for days - and be home in time for my siblings return from school, regardless of whether I had been home all night or not - and leave just before my parents returned home. We then moved to another town, my father leaving ahead of us to gain employment and housing - and to work again for my grandfather. I went with my dad as my behavior was becoming of issue - a punishment for acting out. I left Pueblo with a 4.0 - still.
I lived with my dad and my grandparents. I had lived with them before while my parents built a home for us in Pueblo. We lived under my grandparents rules, compared negatively against our cousins because of the faith of our parents. We were taught the manners of their generation - please, thank you, elbows off of the table, and the forcing of Christ on us as if it were the last chance my grandparents would ever have to save us from out sinful parents. Funny how an eighth-grader can debate religion with a pastor and leave him speechless - his mind spinning for answer and retort...
And I was back. I was the smoking, drinking, and irresponsible reminder of the lost son and brother so many years before. And it continued. From drugs and sex in high school, to drugs and sex 10 years later in Las Vegas. I was the slime that you avoid when you visit that town - and it was the 7th year in a row that I had earned more money than my father, doing nothing -
Things always came easy to me with people / money / tasks / sports / employment / friends - no matter how bad it seemed to others. My parents had no money, and I was the punk rocker faggot that had to defend himself against the sport team members twice my size. I was the weird one. The fag, the fairy - the one dating their girlfriends. I fought, and I lost. I fought and I won. I was loathed and loved, and the prom king that should never have been. The Vegas slime that waited your tables for 5 stars and high-end cuisine - and it was easy.
I left Las Vegas six years ago with $50 after gas and arrived in Oregon with a wedding in less than 10 days - this was the 4th time I started over. My wife and I were married and for the first couple of years lived between a meth dealer and a pot dealer - some of the best neighbors I have ever known. I was not a customer, but my house was guarded with the same intent as they would their own - and I theirs.
I am now rapidly approaching the upper class. I have no formal education to speak of. I am the businessman my grandfather had wished to see inside of his own children. I am the only one of my siblings with a HS diploma, and the only one without children. I am the only one to leave the town that the entirety of my family resides, and I am the only one who is as faithful as my father in religion, though I will never be the scholar that he is. I look into the eyes of my siblings and find them beautiful, and I know that they are unaware. Lost. They are children of this generation. They are the ones that steal from me when I moved to a better neighborhood - the more money children have as children, the less they respect what it is that they have. I am a new home-owner living in a premiere neighborhood with the best schools in my city - and I have been burgled twice by the children of my neighnors and criticized by these neighbors for employing Hispanics and homeless to work my yard.
What does this have to do with your post? I'm finding that myself - I do not know political science, government, yet I conclude that you are very accurate in your post, albeit generous. I have thus far lived a life that many would envy, no matter how disparate or failing it may seem, and I see so clearly people. I see a world in the birth-pangs of a new world order. Like the falling of the church and monarchies in centuries before, ours is changing. We can see the old guard clutching at all around them in hope to save from drowning, no country, man, woman, or child will be able to deny it. The problem is - how hard are we going to make it on ourselves?
I understand, more than a great many at my age, what has changed in the last 50 years. I understand that that Spic, or that Nigger, or that Gook, or that Camel Jockey, or that Jew-Rat, or that Bible-Thumper - is first a human. I am among them and I share the names placed upon them - and I will do all that I can to help them - because I know that they are not the labels placed upon them any more than the labels placed on us are ours.
I see the Rapture. It is here and now. Ask those in Darfur if the end of the world is here. Ask the same of Bosnia, Rwanda, Afghanistan, Iraq, Red-Light district children, childworkers, sex-slaves, and the millions, perhaps billions of others around the world who know not where the will eat next. Ask *them* if the end of the world is here. I care not to be labeled a conservative, a liberal, or otherwise. To do so is a distortion that is a part of a failing era on Earth, and a very unique perspective afforded almost exclusively to western cultures. Yes. We are among the oldest and most successful cultures at this time in history - and look at how the world suffers as a result. America is positioned to lead the world in peace, harmony, justice, understanding, and mercy. We, and western cultures of similar state *will* undoubtedly propigate our ideals around the globe - and that is inevitable. It is evolution, it is imperative, and it is destiny. What is not fully understood from the perspective of our distortion is what it may cost us, and the world over if we fight against the advent of a new era in order to save all those things that degrade and debase us. This is not religion, or race, or politics. This is our reality. This is obvious, and turning away from it in favor of hubris, rhetoric, and selfish amassing of wealth and power for those other than ourselves is irresponsible and incomprehensible and deserving of the wrath we place upon ourselves, by ourselves.
This is our world. These are people.

I see that Irv Mills has written. Not the Irv Mills, the Irving MIlls of Irving Mills and His Hotsy Totsy Gang, that did so much for American popular music of the 1920s and 1930s? Or possibly the son of that Irving Mills?

As a seven year old schoolboy in Canada, I remember learning this tune:
Some talk of Alexander, and some of Hercules
Of Hector and Lysander, and such great names as these.
But of all the world's great heroes, there's none that can compare.
With a tow, row, row, row, row, row, to the British Grenadiers.
Times have changed. Probably not for the better.
Ten years later, Marshall McLuhan coined the term, 'global village.'
I don't think there is any going back, Not in Canada, not in the USA, or anywhere else on the planet.
We desperately need to seek out the new modus vivendi for a new world, just as the Grenadiers were replaced by the tank corps.
We may slog around in the trenches for some time to come.

The timing of the dissolution depends on which of the putative fissures actually gives way. An economic failure is much more likely to precipitate a near term political dissolution than is a continuous demographic creep.
You might look at a marriage and think, "These two are not going to outlast the hollywood average," but mere "growing apart" is a slower precipitate than, say, bankruptcy or infidelity.
If the fed can keep the confidence game going (and that, of course, relies on other geopolitical issues) then it seems reasonable to expect that the country might keep humming economically for many decades to come.
One has to wonder, on the other hand, about religion; and not just religion, but about the collision of religion and technology, particularly bio-technology, and the legal issues stemming therefrom. How long will it be before therapies derived from embryonic stem cells do provide cures for serious ailments? What will the legal obligations will apply to parents to utilize these therapies to benefit their children? Will Catholics and Evangelicals comply? Will they be allowed to work in the health care industry if they choose not to involve themselves in such treatments?
It is a bellwether issue because it is an area where both sides believe they are impelled by moral necessity (as opposed to mere differences in the application of practical wisdom in a policy dispute), and where loom over us can be seen imminent areas of legal conflict, which will end, almost necessarily, in the restriction of one or the other party's "moral" rights.
Will the secularists allow a child to die "needlessly" because a parent refuses to use a therapy derived from, and perhaps even prepared by killing an embryo? Will the evangelical allow his child's life to be saved by terminating the life of another? Will the evangelical seek to proscribe the use of the therapy by the secularist for his own child? Will the secularist allow his child to die because the evangelical does not approve of the morality of a new technology?
This is a fundamental dispute about human nature and, thus, human rights. It has direct consequences to personal liberty. In these particular respects, it looks a lot like the controversy around slavery.

Immigration has a substitution effect of immigrants for births in addition to the direct effect of increasing population. Young adults are subject to multiple substitution effects that take away their economic security, so they can't marry young, have kids young and stay married.
They work backwards and see that without economic security they can't stay married, have kids, so they don't get married. This feeds back into schools. Young adults realize there is no secure place for them, so they drift and don't steady down and get ready to be an adult, i.e. married with kids.
This destroys the entire health of the society. A society where young adults lack economic security to get married, have kids and stay married when their biological clocks tell them is the time, young, is a sick society. Everything flows from that. All the pathology, Columbine, internet abuse, etc.
We need a program of economic security for young adults. No immigration. No foreign students. No know-how transfer. No outsourcing. No guest worker. Develop technology to do the jobs better. No trade deficit. No energy deficit.
We are a sick society for young adults. That is what is killing us. If we stop immigration totally and all the other things, then we will regain our health and our confidence. Schools will stop getting sicker when students are moving into real adulthood right out of them. Students and teachers will know they have to get the job done, and they will.

Here's an interesting difference between the USA and USSR. The USSR replaced established states and when the Soviet system collapsed those nations re-emerged.
The USA did not replace existing nations so if it did not survive what would the map look like?
The idea of American is stronger that the idea of the USSR was but there is a struggle about the meaning of the idea.
Anglo-Protestant America may not survive but the geography and the institutions it created will. Because there is nothing to go back to.
6 Jan 2007
Will the US survive until 2022? I think the answer is yes, because we will still be able to pay the Citizenry off past that point. Social spending was 0% of the Federal Budget in 1930; 10% in 1948; and 56% in 2005.
I predict that the party will end in July of 2027, when our credit is shot. Feel free to challenge my math at www.pezforyou.blogspot.com .

To quote one of the first commenters below who illustrates a common American theme: "...Yet if I asked anybody there what they were, they would all have said American."
The problem with this cliché is that it does not tell us what each individual defines "American" as. One could just as well answer the question by calling oneself "human", "male/female", "a religious person", "a westerner", etc, as to say "American"; in fact all these other identities would be more well defined than "American".
Derbyshire's comparison between the USA and USSR is legitimate in many regards. This comparison is not new though. At least back to the early Cold War period there has been a thread of intellectual thought in Western Europe including Jung, Evola, and others who had seen parallels between the US and USSR in terms of synthetic culture, mass man/thinking/media, the "cult of the machine", an overwhelming focus on the material aspect of life (though with very different degrees of success), etc.
The USA answered the question of how to most efficiently produce a materialistic society's basic needs and wants. This initial success however has masked the failure to address and solve the more fundamental existentialistic questions.

By 2022, us Mexican-Americans will have the political muscle with which to keep FOREIGN bigots like Derbyshire at bay!!!
I mean, California ALONE has 54 House Representatives!!! Will the re-apportionment of 2020 put the lions share in OUR hands???
Or, will it be the re-apportionment of 2030???
California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Colorado and Nevada are the states with the bulk of the Mexican-American population...and together...they have MORE than 100 Congressmen!!!
Surely population growth means the states with the highest numbers and percentages of Mexican-Americans will gain seats in the US House...
Surely Iraq and/or Afghan war veteran status will become an advantage in the elections of the 2020s...and there are legions of Mexican-American war vets!!!
Also, consider that by 2010, the "Hispanic" ( 2/3 of whom are persons of Mexican ancestry) purchasing power in the USA will reach 1 TRILLION , with a T, dollars!!
How will this purchasing power affect American media??? Don't advertisers target the youth who have not yet formed their buying habits and brand loyalties???
Well, the Washington Post reported late last year that 22% of the nations under 5 population is now "Hispanic"...meaning about 14% of the total...1 out of every 7 youngsters in the USA under the age of 5 is now of MEXICAN ancestry!!!
The African-American percentage of the USA is 13%!!
By 2022, Mexican-Americans will no longer be marginalized in America MEDIA!!!
Rest assured that our political muscle coupled with our PURCHASING POWER will make sure thats a thing of the past!!
In short, by 2022, Mexican-Americans will no longer be pushed around and marginalized in this country.
If Derbyshire doesn't like that..TOUGH SQUAT...he should GO BACK TO ENGLAND where he belongs anyway!!!
Because...THATS THE WAY ITS GONNA BE!!
MEXICAN!!! NOT HISPANIC!!! NOT LATINO!!
P.S. Spare me you BS over calling myself MEXICAN , I am SURE you bigots don't object to Derbyshire calling himself English, or O'Reilly calling himself Irish, or Neil Cavuto always making reference to himself as Italian...

Riveting article. I'm thankful I have 15 years to enjoy, then they can have it. I've managed to avoid, by moving away from, diversity and multiculturalism all of my adult life. I guess I'll just hunker down, keep my distance, and watch the fireworks as the country spirals downward.

Nice job, as usual JD.
I agree with you that our nation's future looks bleak. A couple of things could save us. Things have to get much worse first. We need another 9-11ish wake up call as too many dreamworld liberals still don't get it. Another hope is for a new Reagan to appear. McCain, Rudy? Nope. Part of the open borders, dopey diversity is wonderful crowd. Romny? Ummm....Romney?

While pondering how unthinkable it is for us Americans in accepting anything but a positive future for the US, I thought of the example of the deck of cards in "Prime Obsession".
How many overhanging cards could upset the US balance of power, which are the killer ones and will the sequence of events converge or diverge towards an end?
We found out that the Soviet system collapsed because it was too big and their ideology too rigid. As long as we don’t follow similar paths, we should be able to recover even if we come close to disaster, at least for the foreseable future.
Neither the liberals nor the conservatives hold exclusively the most important cards for the US; the most stable ones in the deck are based on the balance between the two.

Let the country break apart. That would be the best thing for our civilization. The federal governament is no friend to the white man, so let it go. The sooner the better.

Ah, for the good old days, when the cute brown-skinned races knew their place and good Christians could lynch them now and pray for their souls later!
This article is so moronic I don't know where to start. How about JD's ridiculous claim that there is "a huge corps of fierce God-haters" in America. (It's hard to hate someone who doesn't exist, by the way. JD probably means "religion-haters".) Poll after poll shows that 90+ percent of Americans believe in God. There are over 500 people in Congress. Can JD name ONE who is a God-hater, or even remotely critical of religion?

Mr. Derbyshire, I understand, is from the UK. Now which UK tribe would be come from--the Pict, Celtic, Roman, Angle, Saxon, Jute, Norman, Semitic, or some other? He was not clear on that point. That's the trouble with Old world countries--so many trbes to keep track of. Just now reading the Fall of the Roman Empire (Peter Heather)--it's hard to keep track of all the tribes in "Germania".
27 Jan 2007
What a disappointing article! A lot of potential squandered on ideological nit-picking. Yes... the USA will split apart because it doesn't follow all of the preferred conservative dogma. Yawn! This is the kind of exaggeration that accompanies anxious nights of obsession, not serious thought.
An alternative hypothesis:
The USA splits into three parts as freedom-loving people flee from the lunatic Right and lunatic Left. They set up New USA in Venezuela after paying Chavez to leave. Their exit is closely followed by lovers of economic freedom who, purely for sentimental reasons, head for Chile, where they receive tax breaks. This leaves the actual USA split between Christian nutcases and fire-breathing Liberals. The world waits in hopeful anticipation for the two sides to kill each other off.
In short, the greatest threat to a nation built on ideas is that the people might find it convenient to pursue their ideals somewhere else.

Actually, the real problem for the US is the likelihood of a military coup d'etat in the relatively near future, say 10 to 20 years. The Democratic party is now virulently anti-military, both the military institution and the individual is it. Some Democrats recently took to burning soldiers in effigy. The party also wishes to overturn our present economic/social structures, replacing them with a socialist/sectarian "eutopia". Supposing they get total control in 2008, how long before they provoke the military, especially if they impose a defeat on it in Irag and Afghanistan?

Applaud your penetrating insights. As a God-fearing man, however, (one of those forgiving Christians) I am optimistic that the USA will not suffer the fate of the USSR. Lets not forget that the USSR was doomed to failure when they banished God from their then new political project. Besides, more than ever now, the free nations have cause to rally around around the banner of freedom what with bloodthirsty islamists threatening to bring us under the yoke of the caliphate once again.

You really hit a home run with that article. I agree with everything you said. I have been arguing with liberal friends and family about the same issues you deal with. Your presentation is vastly more eloquent than any I have made. I empathize with your feeking of isolation, although I am not nearly as outnumbered in my present location. Your logic is brilliant , but unfortunately, liberals don't let the facts get in the way. That is what frustrates me the most. Keep on plugging away sir. I am going to pass this on. Thank you.
