    Joel Kotkin: U.S. is the Modern World’s First Multiracial Superpower

    When Americans think of our nation's power (or our imminent lack of it) we tend to point to the national debts, GDP or military prowess. Few have focused on what may well be the country's most historically significant and powerful weapon: its emergence as the modern world's first multiracial superpower.
    --------------
    The U.S. will likely remain militarily and even economically preeminent, but much of its power will stem from its status as the world's only multiracial superpower. America's global reach will extend well beyond Coca-Cola, Boeing and the Seventh Fleet and express itself in the most intimate cultural and familial ties.
    Our continuing relative success with immigration is key to this process. In the next decades the fate of Western countries may well depend on their ability to make social and economic room for people whose origins lay outside Europe. No Western-derived country produces enough children of European descent to prevent them from becoming granny nation-states by 2050

    The US became a superpower before it became significantly multiracial, and it will cease to be a superpower in large measure due to the impoverishing effects of mass immigration. States like California and Arizona are already bearing the brunt of fiscal calamity due in no small part to poorly contributing immigrants.

    Moreover, the author of this piece doesn't know what he's talking about. The USSR was very much a multiracial superpower (a 'state of nationalities' rather than a nation-state as Alfred Rosenberg mused), and that it imploded had a lot to do with this. Certainly when the USSR broke up, it did so along racial-ethnic-national lines. This was of course no accident.

    Exactly, like all multi-cultists they say what they want the world to be rather than what the world actually is. America became a superpower whilst it was a European-derived nation (about 90% white at its height) with a more or less singular identity, and thus its no surprise that its collapsing now as this identity has been upset/removed by multi-culturalism.

    The current situation in America is a combination of poor ideological governance i.e. internationalism, ultra-liberalism, laissez faire economics and an inevitable fracturing along ethnic/cultural/religious/linguistic/political lines.

    This guy really needs to do some research - every multi-cultural/diverse superpower in history collapsed due to internal fracturing i.e. the Roman empire, the Mongolian empire, the British empire, the French empire, the Soviet Union etc.

    America's multi-cult masters will continue to pat themselves on the back while the nation's foundations rot away. They've been singing the same song for half a century, and now that they have a half-black president, they've redoubled their frantic efforts to sell the country as the pinnacle of enlightenment and civilization. Nihil novi.
