Convergence of Catastrophes by Guillaume Faye

By Guillaume Faye

The thesis of this publication is a terrifying one: our current worldwide civilisation will cave in inside of two decades, and it truly is too overdue to prevent it. we will regress to a 'New heart a long time' such as the autumn of the Roman Empire, in simple terms even more damaging. For the 1st time within the entire of human historical past, definite 'dramatic lines', mammoth crises and catastrophes of big proportions - already tangible - have emerged. they're converging and may probably achieve their zenith through 2020. as much as that point, as we've got already been witnessing, their results will proceed to worsen, until eventually a verge of collapse is reached. Guillaume Faye conscientiously examines those escalating crises one after the other: environmental harm and weather switch; the breakdown of a speculative and debt-ridden globalist economic system; the go back of world epidemics; the depletion of fossil fuels and of agricultural and fishing assets; the increase of mass immigration, terrorism and nuclear proliferation; the worsening of the rupture among Islam and the West; and the dramatic explosion of a inhabitants of the aged within the prosperous international locations - it all resulting in an unheard of around the world monetary recession, a rise in localised and doubtless large-scale armed conflicts...and possibly worse. nonetheless, Faye reminds us, we should always now not provide in to pessimism: what we're experiencing isn't really an apocalypse, yet a transformation of humanity. we'd have reached the tip of what the Hindu traditions check with because the Kali Yuga, the 'age of iron' marked by way of materialism and selfishness, yet those that live on the disaster and chaos will maybe construct a brand new and higher humanity... With a doctorate in political technological know-how from Paris' Institute of Political technological know-how, the essayist Guillaume Faye used to be one of many critical theoreticians of the French Nouvelle Droite within the Nineteen Seventies and '80s sooner than his starting to be sympathy for the identitarian stream. He has additionally been a journalist at Figaro-Magazine, Paris-Match, Magazine-Hebdo, Valeurs Actuelles, and a radio commentator. For numerous years he was once the editor of J'ai tout compris (I Understood Everything), a personal e-newsletter.
