The Scramble for Europe Had just Begun

The immigration of the Poor to Europe is only beginning.

Unless Europe would build walls, all around, millions of poor from Asia and Africa would find a way or another to get in.

Nothing could stop them. Death or guns can’t. Migration is something natural. Animals always move from the place with less food to the place with more food. The same for humans.

When Europeans were dying of hunger in the 15th to 19th century, they migrated massively to America, Africa and Asia.

Nowadays, there are more Europeans outside of Europe than in Europe. Two non-European continents (America and Australia, + South Africa) had been invaded by poor and persecuted Europeans looking for better life.

These two continents are now owned by the descendants of those immigrants.

At a more geopolitical level, poor had always succeed to invade and conquer their much more rich and powerful neighbors. Always.

The poor Barbarians invaded and sacked Rome. The poor Mongols invade China. The poor Arabs invaded the Songhai empire. (See our article: the Barbarians always come from the North).

What is unfortunate is that we have the knowledge to predict the future quite accurately, but greed usually got us repeating the same errors.

The scramble for Europe has just started. The poor always win. The barbarians always outsmart their much stronger and rich neighbor.

We share the same world. High levels of poverty would always lead to global insecurities.

May history guides, and greed protects us!

    I would have to say the initial conclusions on migration (and the history of) are likely correct. I would postulate modern migrations occur (and will continue to) for the very same reasons.
