I have, finally, taken the book off my shelves, the original version that came out in 2013, and am reading it. It caused a scandal in France and hysteria followed during which the author Laurent Obertone had actually to go into hiding (from memory). This did not get better when it was discovered that his work was brilliantly written and, what was worse for the dream merchants: his research and documentations were impeccable:
The back cover reads:
Investigation of a taboo subject:
The re-barbarising (I cannot find a satisfactory translation for the French word " ensauvagement" hence what might be my slightly abortive attempt at creating a neologism) of a nation:
Every 24 hours:
Most of the cases the author documents date from 2011-12. So you can be sure that it the ensauvagement of France has become substantially worse, especially since Angela Merkel has joined the dark side officially.
"One of the most dangerous errors is that civilisation is automatically bound to increase and spread. The lesson of history is the opposite; civilisation is a rarity, attained with difficulty and easily lost. The normal state of humanity is barbarism, just as the normal surface of the planet is salt water. Land looms large in our imagination and civilisation in history books, only because sea and savagery are to us less interesting.”
This one below is just one of many videos of this kind that I see flicker across my desk, every day ..... watch it if you are interested in seeing the reality that is facing our society, it's a short and VIOLENT testimony of the savagery piercing the thin veneer of civilisation. The uninvited guests are attacking their "tolerant and generous" hosts' most vulnerable charges: their children:
Putting the above into a kind of rhyming nutshell is Al Wilson:
I just received this as I was writing the above:
Saturday, 21 October 2017
There is an ongoing police operation in Munich, following a knife attack on 21 October. Munich Police have advised people to avoid the areas of Rosenheimer Platz, Munich Ostbahnhof and Munich Ostpark. The level of advice has not changed. Exercise normal safety precautions in Germany, and be aware of the increased threat of terrorism.

someone holds the Gates open for them"
