“Barbarism is the natural state of mankind. Civilization is unnatural. It is a whim of circumstance. And barbarism must always ultimately triumph“.
-Robert E. Howard
The Europeans, of (at least) 500’000 years of their existence (putting aside the more or less 2’000 years of Christian plague) have been barbarians (hunter-gatherers) for about 490’000 years (“working” not more than 17 hours every week to obtain the food needed to their own families). More, civilization came about not because of “evolution” but as a consequence of our degeneration. It came about because we, Neanderthals, were forced by circumstances to mix our blood with Homo Sapiens (the African man), and that changed our bodies and minds (today we are on avergae 99,7% Neanderthals). Civilization lies on a tightrope. Barbarism will soon return.

P.S. Talking of Robert. E. Howard…have you ever seen the beautful (and, obviously, barbaric…) film “Conan the Barbarian” by John Milius? If not, I invite you to do so…
