Somalilandsun- Countless academic journals, books, polls, and statistics have repeatedly shown that “Western” world is on the brink of collapse due to its zero population growth. The UN statistics on the population of Europe finds: “By 2050, a third of Europe’s people will be over sixty. In the U.K., Germany, France, Italy, and Spain, one in ten will be over eighty! The median age of a European will be fifty, nine years above the median age of the oldest nation on earth today, Japan.” This means that in Western countries, the percentage of the young population is alarmingly declining while the percentage of aged population is massively increasing.
Usually, when old people retire, there must be large number of young workers to replace them. These young workers generate tax revenue which will be given to old people as pensions or retirement money. But in the West, the drastic declining young workers are unable to generate enough tax revenue to pay the pensions of the old people. “In Europe,” wrote The Economist, “there are currently 35 people of pensionable age for every 100 people of working age. By 2050, on present demographic trends, there will be 75 pensioners for every 100 workers.” So, where do the Western countries will get the pension of this retired population?
The West’s brightest minds came up with three solutions: First, “. . . trillions of dollars in new tax revenues must be found.” Second, Western “. . . women must begin bearing twoand three times as many babies.” Third, “Europe must import millions of workers each year. These are the stark choices the Old Continent faces.” The Western countries have attempted to implement all three solutions.
The first solution—“. . . trillions of dollars in new tax revenues must be found”—isunattainable, because there is no way to find trillions of dollars in new tax revenueswithout having large number of workers. Then, Western countries have tried to implement the second solution, which is making Western women to begin ‘bearing two to three times as many babies.’ But Western women constantly refuse to bear babies. Therefore, Western countries literally begin to pay and bribe women to have babies. Germany, for example, “. . . paid childcare leave — up to $35,000 over the course of a year.” In Australia, you can get a baby bonus — payments of about $6,000.00 over the baby’s first year. In Norway, every child “is entitled to lump-sum-benefits. The sum totaled over 38,000.00 kroner or over $6,000.00 CAD. One also receives 970.00 kroner per month ($160.00) until the child turns 18.” And most other Western countries are doing the same. Did bribing women to bear babies work?
No! It didn’t. Regardless of how much Western governments have repeatedly attemptedto pay or bribe their women to bear babies, the Western women refuse it. The contemporary Western women are called DINKS—meaning, “double income, with no kids”; that is, unmarried woman and man living together while having high-paying jobs without kids. “If women can earn more than enough to be financially independent,” wrote Dr. John Wallace of Johns Hopkins University, “a husband is no longer essential. And if you can also have [intercourse] and not babies—and this seems to be true now of Catholic Italy as it is of secular Britain—why marry?” Therefore, the second solution has also failed. Now, the Western countries have only the last solution.
Their last solution is to accept immigrants and refugees from other countries. These immigrants and refugees will become the new labor force who will generate the required trillions of dollars in new tax revenues. Therefore, the reason that you are accepted as refugee is to become the new labor force in Western countries. In other words, they accept you so that you will pay the pensions or the retirement money for their old people.That is why you are brought (or accepted) into the West. The West does not accept refugees on humanitarian grounds. There is no such a thing as “humanitarian grounds.” It is their interest to accept you.
Some of you may wonder: if this is true, why are the Western countries refusing to accept refugees or immigrants? There are many reasons. First, almost every Western country plans to accept certain number of refugees/immigrants each year.
Therefore, they are trying to resist accepting more than that. Secondly, there are many Western intellectuals, politicians and laymen who are extremely panicked, because they have realized that they are losing their country and there is nothing that they can do about. Lastly, big corporations and businesses are using the available and cheaper immigrants against their employees as bargaining chips.
You are here to feed the West’s retired people.

Somalilanders from Australia, Canada, and the Arab world need to do more for Somaliland. It seems wherever you turn it is Somalilanders from Europe and America on the move for the Somaliland cause.
Time for the rest to step up. Case closed!
Answer to European Somalilander
A majority of Americans voted for Hillary Clinton, she is a progressive Democrat, so don’t make the mistake of thinking America to be Trump and Trump views only, its a big big country.
Furthermore Trump is better than Obama from a Somaliland perspective as Obama unfairly recognised Mogadishu as a “government”, Trump has not harmed Somaliland in the least, he has improved his Usa’s economy which he was voted to do, he has banned people from Somalia going to America which I strongly support as he rightly realised the horror that is that country Somalia and the danger it poses to Somaliland and USA alike. Nothing racist in Trump stating the obvious: Somalia is a regional and international threat and its government and people must be contained to within its borders for the sake of safety for Somaliland, Usa and the entire world. Trump so far is ok for Usa and for Somaliland, he gets an A- rating. He might be the president that brings back George W. Bush’s Dual Track policy. Don”t hate Trump until you know his legacy. You are in Europe so you don’t Usa fully its not what you see on tv it is a complicated country 50 states remember?
Finally I say lets not pit Somalilanders in the diaspora against eachother. Clearly both USA and Europe are great places to live, let us together wherever the diaspora is focus on helping Somaliland develop economically and gain official recognition.
I have no doubt that a mix of humanitarianism and need is the reason for accepting refugees on the part of the West.
It is an extreme oversimplification of the issue to claim that only a need on the part of the West is the reason for us having been accepted to live there.
If we were only brought there to work then why have we been given citizenship? These countries could as well have given us temporary workpermits?
It has been my own experience as a refugee to Europe that atleast in Western Europe a great majority of the populations are progressivly inclined and believe in humanitarianism and peoples equal worth regardless of race/ethnicity. Eastern Europe on the other hand is totally different and progressive ideals are lacking and they are rather backward and primitive in thinking especially Polen and Hungary or the facist states inside Europe.
As an American Somali maybe your experience is different but here in Europe it can not be said we were brought here simply for work purposes, eventhough that too would not be wrong as we benefit and the host countries benefit(win-win).
Western Europe offers the best current model for the world: multilateralism, progressive ideals(fighting climate change, peoples equal worth, peace, democracy, freedom to practice religion). This is not to be found in other superpowers. We are proud to be Somaliland Europeans, we truly are. Sorry if you dont feel that way about your militaristic unilateralism supporting and climate change denying America.
