Death of the West: How Dying Populations and Immigrant Invasions Imperil Our Country and Civilization by Patrick J. Buchanan

The national bestseller that shocked the nation—The Death of the West is an unflinching look at the increasing decline in Western culture and power.

The West is dying. Collapsing birth rates in Europe and the U. S., coupled with population explosions in Africa, Asia and Latin America are set to cause cataclysmic shifts in world power, as unchecked immigration swamps and polarizes every Western society and nation.

The Death of the West details how a civilization, culture, and moral order are passing away and foresees a new world order that has terrifying implications for our freedom, our faith, and the preeminence of American democracy.

The Death of the West is a timely, provocative study that asks the question that quietly troubles millions: Is the America we grew up in gone forever?

Anyone who shops at the local grocery store in the 'ghetto' knows this book speaks facts. Mr. Buchanan is totally accurate when he says the West is dying. Savages will inherit the Earth if decent people don't wake up soon. America will fall and the world will enter into a new dark age. Those who breed will have the planet for themselves. This is a shocking call to christian women to have more children now or the children you do have will grow up in a Muslim world.

To be honest, I'm not even a right wing conservative and I agree with Pat Buchanan on this matter. America is divided into too many subcultures that seperate the people. American culture is dying because liberals point out mistakes that have been made in our history therefore, these flaws have been used against this great country in a destructive way.

Buchanan seems to have a lot of good things to say, but i think he is slightly less objective than he should be in this situation.

'The Death of the West' by Patrick Buchanan is a courageous look at society in contemporary America. Buchanan does a great job of arguing his case against faithless morals and unquestioned immigration. The constant use of quotes was a bit repetitive but overall 'Death of the West' is a superb read. I definitely recommend it. Of course, one should not swallow everything they read whole, but Buchanan's work is without doubt THOUGHT PROVOKING. I think many would agree that a 'family wage' should be explored again. Thanks Pat!!!

Mr. Buchanan certainly shows his genius throughout this entire book. So much of what he reports upon is accurate and can be seen on a daily basis if you just open your eyes and look! America is crumbling around us, and we still have time to do something about it if we so choose. I challenge everyone to read this book and fight for the basic American values that are quickly going the way of history, ones our children will never know of! Hurry, before it is too late!!!!!!!

What is most interesting about those who disagree with Mr. Buchannan is the absence of any argument by them that the trends he describes in the book are erroneous. They do to Buchannan what they have always done with him. They call him names! My advice to those who dislike Mr. Buchannan is this: either disprove his thesis or avoid embarrassing yourself by resorting to name calling. It doesn't work. People of the political left have been slandering him for years and he's more popular than ever. If you can offer a reasonable counter argument to his position then by all means do so but please spare us the name calling. It may make you feel good but it hasn't worked in the past and it won't work now. I encourage everyone to buy this book without delay.

Not being a reader with a lot of political interest, I found this book definately a fascinating read. I appreciate how the author gives documented references to the statistics in the book. Definately gives one the answers to many a questions, usually not found in typical news formats. This book gives me a new-found interest in current affairs/political issues.

Patrick Buchanan could do a lot better. He focuses on stats of the White-skinned Westerners not having children in their homelands as one major reason for the decline of the West. He does not really discuss why Whites do not have children, but rambles on the possibilities such as women wanting careers, but then who would be upset with such as Marie Curie? He suggests that maybe lack of religious conviction could be the reason as those with many icons have more children [but many consider religions superstitions and superstitious people are usually poor and poor often have more children] and presents no stats. Yet, he also writes that Red China [a Marxist state that does not adhere to religion] has many children even with a forced one child policy and poses a threat of a takeover of Russia. Every thing has a right to self determination. Buchanan raises many serious questions but does not answer them, or he answers them with conflicting views. He mentions terrible politics in Russia and N. Sharansky, but does not delve more into it. His book touches on serious matters, but does not further investigate or offer serious answers. The decline of the American schools is mentioned. Yet, racism could be the reason since the elementary and high school textbooks and curriculum have not been updated to "Barrons" standard leaving students in the vague, and even in NYC, city college tuition became installed after more minorities enrolled and made education unafforable to many. It could be argued that Whites still do not want minorities or themselves to recieve a decent education or have self-determination, but Buchanan does not look at any angle but that Whites are dying out as though they have the most to offer, but perhaps they make it look that way through oppression. That is, the White leadership is oppressive is a possibility for the decline in the numbers of Whites in those ranks. He barely examines this. He mentions Hollywood as a possible reason for social problems, but Hollywood has always been cheap. It is so called entertainment, and people do not have to watch it. His discussion of masculine female characters such as Ripley in Aliens does not explain the egg producing mother Alien itself as no more such feisty a female has ever been in a scifi film perhaps. The Alien female has a right to self determination. He mentions possible reverse racism, and hate crimes, but does not delve into the disease of racism in general. He isolates NYT's Susan Sontag as some sort of creature from hippieland. Though, he seems to be hung on the ruling class of Whites and not the average White that just tries to survive--he might see they have children and die in coal mines. Not enough stats in some areas such as these. I would consider this work a chapter in a book not a whole book itself. It really reeks of white superiority problems. He does not examine "angry White men," or Christians that use barbed wire or "devil's rope" in many senses. He does not mention the horrosr the Whites have done to the environment--the murder of millions of birds, flora and fauna, etc. Most are taught by parents to clean up their own room, but how come they do not so far clean up the mess in the environment--a natural progression. He does not mention some of the horrors of the White leadership that at one point did not believe in sterilizing medical instruments for surgical operations. He looks at a fairy tale view of Whitedom in some instances. Normally, I would not read a book such as this even after it has been much publicised, but a relative of mine left it laying around.

Buchanan writes of an America in moral and physical decay. He thinly veils racist attitudes towards minorities in America as a righteous reclaiming of the land that belongs to Europeans. He forgets to examine that Europeans swiped the land from the natives in the first place, then wants to deny 'immigrant invasions' from taking the land from his white forefathers? He seems to forget that European Puritans fled to America to escape persecution and dubbed America the 'New World.' Now he wishes to protect the 'vanishing breed' of Europeans, by denying entrance to others who are seeking a better life, just as Buchanan's forefathers had. Has he forgotten the mantra for which our statue of liberty stands?
