Beschreibung

The Strange Death of Europe is a highly personal account of a continent and culture caught in the act of suicide. Declining birth rates, mass immigration, and cultivated self-distrust and self-hatred have come together to make Europeans unable to argue for themselves and incapable of resisting their own comprehensive alteration as a society and an eventual end.
This is not just an analysis of demographic and political realities; it is also an eyewitness account of a continent in self-destruct mode. It includes accounts based on travels across the entire continent, from the places where migrants land to the places they end up, from the people who pretend they want them to the places which cannot accept them.
Murray takes a step back at each stage and looks at the bigger and deeper issues which lie behind a continent's possible demise, from an atmosphere of mass terror attacks to the steady erosion of our freedoms. The audiobook addresses the disappointing failure of multiculturalism, Angela Merkel's U-turn on migration, the lack of repatriation, and the Western fixation on guilt. Murray travels to Berlin, Paris, Scandinavia, Lampedusa, and Greece to uncover the malaise at the very heart of the European culture and to hear the stories of those who have arrived in Europe from far away.
This sharp and incisive audiobook ends up with two visions for a new Europe - one hopeful, one pessimistic - which paint a picture of Europe in crisis and offer a choice as to what, if anything, we can do next. But perhaps Spengler was right: 'civilizations, like humans, are born, briefly flourish, decay, and die'.

We all can see it. This is the last wake-up call.

Very well written, self-reflecting chronic of our demise. Though being reminded of our imbecile politicians can cause anger and depression to reoccur.

The discussion of immigration is one-sided.

The author is scaremongering the close future of Europe due to immigration. For certain, this is a major challenge of our time which will need an efficient management. Nevertheless, the first chapter was illustrating the history of immigration in the second part of the 20th century as a chain of political failure and naivism which will certainly cause the destruction of European values. Allthough I have a high interest in the topic, this perspective was so negatively biased that I couldn't keep up to continue to the next chapters. A more holistic view on humanity would be desirable which discuss the motivation of immigration, the wealth gap and it's chances besides it's risks.
