Not Everyone Can Enjoy a First World Lifestyle

A burgeoning global population and resource scarcity means that liberal dreams of a global utopia are a destructive fantasy.

Not Everyone Can Enjoy a First World Lifestyle

Most liberals have one specific property that makes them what they are—they live in a fantasy universe that is totally divorced from reality. Many believe that if you wish hard enough for something (maybe say a Harry Potter spell) it will just magically appear. And if it doesn’t, it is either the evil White man’s fault, or Russian bots are doing their malicious work. So, it may be beneficial to our cause to give the liberals a dose of reality.

We hear time and time again that if the “evil White man” were to share, there would be total prosperity—no poverty or hunger, and even no war. Humans would just happily live together in a state of perpetual bliss. What if someone were to say that shithole countries are shitholes, not because the evil White man isn’t sharing enough, but because that is their natural state? Even if the whole World is magically to come together and devote all our efforts to uplifting Africans, there is nothing meaningful that can be accomplished.

Liberals live in a world where there are no resource constraints, and if there are any, they will magically disappear in the distant future. But there are real constraints out there that we have no way of circumventing. If there is any one way to measure the general quality of life in a country, it is the consumption of energy per capita. Energy is everything: it is needed to produce the stuff we use, wear or eat; it is used to power everything inside our houses; it is needed to have clean water running from the tap. Almost everything requires power, particularly electricity. But it is very constrained, especially in distribution.

Every electric device out there from your computer, to your fridge, to your car, to power generators and power lines requires a lot of copper to function. There is no way to go around this, and technologies that could do it are nowhere on the horizon. In all of the known copper deposits on the face of the Earth, there isn’t enough copper to provide the same level of electrification to all the current residents of India that countries like the US currently have, much less the rest of the World, and even less future populations given the high birthrates in non-White countries. Copper is only one of many resources that we are constrained on: fossil fuels, platinum group elements, “rare earth” elements, phosphorus, and many other resources are limited.

Phosphorus scarcity is also concerning, as it is needed for fertilizers, and its annual demand is rising nearly twice as fast as the growth of the human population. When we run out of phosphorus, the world’s food production will see an extreme decrease, causing a rampant, widespread increase in global hunger. And eating is sort of nice.

Now here comes the big blackpill. If “evil White men” were to suddenly become less evil and share everything, we still wouldn’t be able to provide every family in the world with a house that has a working refrigerator in it, or even running water for that matter. We can’t make third world countries first world countries, but we can turn first world countries into third world countries. Just import more residents who multiply uncontrollably, and enjoy. There aren’t going to be many good things funded like science research into space travel if the country can’t get its power plants or water purification stations working well enough to support the existing population. Do you want your kids to live in a place where there is barely any clean water, and things like fridges and air conditioners are a fairy tale from the past?

This is a matter of survival—a pure and simple “us vs. them” scenario. If we want to guarantee the existence of our children, we must make some attitude adjustments. Importing people from the third world solves nothing, as infinity more will spawn where those came from. It also further strains what resources we have. There is no happy global utopia on the horizon. There is, however, likely to be serious conflict for resources.
