“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, in (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 per week to obtain the food necessary for their families). Moreover, civilization manifested itself not because of “evolution” but as a consequence of our degeneration. It manifested itself because we, Neanderthal men, were forced by circumstances to mix our blood with Homo Sapiens (the African man), and this changed our bodies and minds (today we are on avergae 99,7% Neanderthals). Civilization lies on the razor’s edge. Barbarism will soon return.

P.S. Talking of Robert. E. Howard…have you ever watched the beautful (and, obviously, barbaric…) film “Conan the Barbarian” by John Milius? If the answer is no, I invite you to do so…
