Charles Darwin and the Demise of the European Peoples

Charles Darwin believed the white races of mankind were in the evolutionary vanguard and would eventually displace the rest of humanity.

At some future period, not very distant as measured by centuries, the civilised races of man will almost certainly exterminate, and replace, the savage races throughout the world.

Charles Darwin, The Descent of Man, 1871

In asserting this, Darwin merely stated what seemed obvious at a time when the European nations dominated the worlds of science and technology, controlled most of the World’s wealth, possessed overwhelming military superiority, were expanding rapidly in population, while  establishing colonies throughout the world. There was virtually no reasonable person to dispute Darwin’s view.

But Darwin’s view was based on a misjudgment of the relative significance of cultural and racial differences in accounting for the economic, demographic and military superiority of the European nations during the 19th Century. As it turns out, Darwin’s “savage” races have, during the last 150 years, assimilated the technological culture of the West and combined it with huge armies of cheap labor to achieve unprecedentedly rapid growth in prosperity and potential military power.

But Darwin knew that organic evolution means the death to of every species and, within a species, the death of every race. The eventual the demise of the European peoples would not, therefore, have been inconceivable to Darwin. Moreover, he understood the danger of degeneration among the Western Nations:

With savages, the weak in body or mind are soon eliminated; and those that survive commonly exhibit a vigorous state of health. We civilized men, on the other hand, do our utmost to check the process of elimination. We build asylums for the imbecile, the maimed and the sick; we institute poor-laws; and our medical men exert their utmost skill to save the life of every one to the last moment. There is reason to believe that vaccination has preserved thousands, who from a weak constitution would formerly have succumbed to small-pox. Thus the weak members of civilized societies propagate their kind. No one who has attended to the breeding of domestic animals will doubt that this must be highly injurious to the race of man. It is surprising how soon a want of care, or care wrongly directed, leads to the degeneration of a domestic race; but excepting in the case of man himself, hardly anyone is so ignorant as to allow his worst animals to breed.

Charles Darwin, The Descent of Man, 1871

Darwin, however, believed it possible though unlikely that the worst effects of the survival of the unfit would be mitigated by the fact of:

the weaker and inferior members of society not marrying so freely as the sound; and this check might be indefinitely increased, though this is more to be hoped for than expected.

Charles Darwin, The Descent of Man, 1871

This, as it evident now, was an entirely vain hope, and indeed what Darwin considered the “weaker and inferior” member of society now breed far more freely than their more intelligent and otherwise fitter compatriots among whom, girls education and the feminist revolt against motherhood has drastically reduced fertility, while for the most feckless and unintelligent females, pregnancy has become an automatic ticket to board and lodging at public expense.

But even had he understood the cultural debauchery that has radically diminished the vigor and intelligence of much of the population in the Western democracies, Darwin would have been surprised at how quickly the end now draws nigh and at whose hands, namely, an unholy alliance between those “savage” races and the European political class, who in the service of their plutocratic and globalist masters, have implemented genocidal policies against their their own people, in the process exporting much of the Western economies, jobs, capital and technology, to the Third World, greatly to the benefit of those admirably energetic, thrifty and sensible savage races.
