The more I think about it, the more it just boggles my mind how my generation has been set up to fail.
Consider the simple example of what happened to our colonies. In 1975, the Dutch government agreed to grant Suriname independence. At the time, the whole kingdom of the Netherlands had a population of about 14 million people.
Suriname at the time, had a population of about 400,000. The Netherlands without Suriname has a land surface area of 41,000 kilometer. Suriname has a land surface area of 163,000 kilometer.
In other words, when the Netherlands and Suriname decide to go their own way, Suriname gets 80% of the land surface area, for 4% of the total population. The Netherlands gets 20% of the land surface area, for the other 96% of the population.
I don’t know if people realize this, but we had our colonies for a reason. Humans need a place to live and do things. You need places to grow food, places to find the materials your society needs, etc.
Imagine one man has to live off 256410 square meters of land. That’s the situation in Suriname today. Share the whole land equally among every person in Suriname and they will receive 256,410 square meters of land. Now imagine one man has to live off 1923 square meters of land. That’s the situation in the Netherlands.
If this was medieval Europe, everyone would understand the situation. The guy in Suriname becomes an aristocrat, the guy in the Netherlands becomes a peasant.
But now consider this: It still wasn’t good enough. So what happened is that our Dutch government, that gave away 80% of our land to 4% of the population, agreed to pay Suriname 1.5 billion Euro. And even better, Suriname began with zero debt. The Netherlands forgave Suriname’s entire debt.
And it gets better. A third of the population in Suriname, didn’t like the idea of having a corrupt Creole gang running the country, so they left to the Netherlands. Our country ended up having to take care of them too. They got 80% of the land, but they forced us, who got 20% of the land, to take care of 33% of their population!
In Suriname itself, the government immediately just began to violate its promises and began expropriating land of white Dutch landholders in Suriname.
Now consider this map of Suriname’s population density:
Maybe you think the people of Suriname deserved independence, even though a third of the population had so little trust in the future of the newly independent nation that they left while they still could.
Fine. But what exactly, entitles them to inherit land that they never set foot on? The entire inland of Suriname, has exactly no relationship to any of the people living in Paramaribo. They never visited it. They never owned any of it.
There’s a handful of native tribes living there, that speak their own languages. What relationship do those tribes have, to the Indian and Indonesian laborers or the creoles who live in Paramaribo? How do you decide that those people now have to live in a country ruled by creoles? They don’t speak the same language, they don’t look the same, they have no shared history. Why do they become Surinamese subjects, instead of Dutch subjects?
My country is being forced to take care of tens of thousands of asylum seekers, who enter our country every year. Fine. We’ll say that’s our obligation. But we literally have no physical space for them in the Netherlands. We’re building houses, on land that’s going to be beneath sea level. You know what would be really useful? If we still owned Suriname. We would have a place to settle people we can’t settle in the Netherlands. Everyone would benefit.
This is of course not very dissimilar to what happened in Indonesia. The Javanese wanted independence. Fine. They kicked out thousands of people who had to come to the Netherlands as refugees. Fine. But why do the Javanese end up owning the whole archipelago? What ties Java to West Papua exactly?
Who came up with the rule, that whatever subject people happen to be most populous get to inherit the whole colonial empire of their masters? We are expected to grant Suriname independence. So why isn’t Java forced to grant West Papua independence?
The economy in Suriname today, depends almost entirely on the exploitation of natural resources found in the rainforest covered parts of the country. Gold and oil are 67% of the country’s export. Beyond raw resources, they don’t manufacture anything of substance.
These natural resources don’t come from Paramaribo of course. They come from parts of the country where nobody lives, except for some indigenous people, who don’t like it. So why exactly, are people in Paramaribo entitled to these natural resources?
But it gets better. Here you have the six islands the Netherlands settled. There are 337,000 people living there, almost as many as in independent Suriname. But these islands have basically no land.
They have a density of 343 people per square kilometer, That’s almost 100 times the density of Suriname. There are some tourists to these islands, but mostly, they just cost us money. These islands used to be administered from the capital of Suriname, Paramaribo.
Again, because these whole countries are covered by cities, there are no meaningful natural resources to acquire and food production on these islands is practically impossible too. The population consists of descendants of enslaved people, like in Suriname.
In a sane world, when Suriname went independent they would have run these parts of the empire too. After all, if they can take care of the native Indians they have zero cultural ties to, they can take care of the population of these islands too.
But that didn’t happen of course. No, those parts are still part of our country today. They get some tourists, but mostly we have to pay for everything there. But the natural resources that would allow us to pay for everything the people on these islands need, went to independent Suriname.
But it gets even better. Bonaire, St Maarten and St Eustatisu are “special municipalities” of the Netherlands. If I want to move to these islands, to live there, it’s not allowed. I’ll need to prove I’ll have an employer, enough money to take care of myself, a house I’m going to live in and evidence of good behavior of the past five years.
What if the opposite happens, the people from these islands want to come live in the Netherlands? There are zero requirements. A convicted criminal in the Netherlands wants to move to Bonaire to start a new life? They won’t let him in. A convicted criminal on Bonaire wants to move here? No problem! This is not a hypothetical concern. The murder rate on these islands is 10-20 times higher than on the mainland.
Note that the Americans don’t do any of this. The Americans purchased Alaska in 1867. Today it’s full of oil and other resources. They’re not about to give Alaska independence. The Netherlands got Suriname in 1667. We have continually had Dutch people living there since then. But we’re just expected to give this part of the globe away, whereas the Americans can occupy basically an entire continent, with no obligation to grant independence to any of the people living there.
I ask myself: We have eighteen million people now, living on this tiny plot of land, about to sink under the ocean. What exactly are we supposed to live off? We had natural gas, but our government basically gave away our natural gas in 1967. These drooling retards wanted to pump up all our gas within thirty years, thinking it would be worthless afterwards, because everyone would be using nuclear energy.
So I am born in the 90’s, to poor boomer parents. I’m born into a country that gave away the Eastern part of my country to the Javanese. The Western part of my country is given away to creoles living in a city of 300,000 people, surrounded by empty forest, except for the poor overpopulated islands. And the natural resources that the middle part of the country has, are pumped up and given away for pennies to Turkey and other countries, because the retards running this place think we’re all about to start using nuclear energy.
So what exactly, am I supposed to do? Sit in an office and sell fake Internet money to people, because we own nothing, because we gave everything we owned away to less than 4% of the people? Borrow 400k from the bank and spend my whole life paying it off, because the land in this country is ridiculously expensive, because we stuffed 18 million people into 20% of the old kingdom’s land area?
Just imagine for a moment, if the kingdom of Saudi Arabia said to the Shiites living on top of all the oil in the Eastern part of the country: “Hey, you guys are obviously oppressed by us. Here’s your own independent nation. We will pay your debt for you. We’ll give you some extra money too. Any Sunnis afraid of getting lynched in your country we will accept as refugees. Have fun!”
That’s what my country did with Suriname. Complete insanity. They got the best deal in history, but they still managed to screw it up. They almost immediately ended up with a dictator called Desi Bouterse, who began killing people who criticized him. And then the country descended into a civil war that lasted six years, killing hundreds and causing thousands of refugees. That’s a lot, when your population consists of just a few hundred thousand people.
I just wish I could go back to 1975 and ask these morons: What exactly do you expect us to do? You’re about to give away everything you inherited, what do you expect us, your descendants, to do exactly? Sign ourselves up for wage slavery?
I just find myself wondering, if these people ever considered the simple fact that we could afford to have a population of 13 million people living in a river delta, because we were able to import the stuff we need from abroad.
Back in 1975, these morons made a catastrophic decision, that left us with the 1923 square meters of land per citizen we have today.
I just want to ask you: What are we supposed to be doing, with 1923 square meter per citizen? You can’t hold pigs and cattle at these densities, without poisoning the soil with their manure. And what are these animals even supposed to eat at these densities? Food imported from abroad.
It seems that leftists and liberals are just completely incapable of considering the possibility that a population needs to own fertile land to have any sort of chance to sustain itself.
These people instead left us with unsustainable schemes:
Tourism. We let people see the country, those people pay us and then we can buy food that we can’t grow ourselves because we gave away 80% of our land in 1975.
Education. People from other countries come here to pay money to attend our universities.
Knowledge economy. Dutch people are so smart that the whole world will pay for our expertise.
These are all varieties of the same scheme: Fool the world into thinking that this country is somehow uniquely special and competent, which it isn’t. If the Netherlands was somehow made up of uniquely special and competent people, we would not be dumb enough to give away 80% of our land to 4% of our population.
What’s going to happen now is that we’re going to end up like Egypt: Millions of people, huddled together, building houses on top of the fertile soil that is supposed to be feeding us. But it’s frankly worse, because Egypt at least has an entire desert. Maybe they’ll find oil there, or some other natural resources.
We on the other hand, have nothing. Absolutely nothing. We just fool the world into thinking that this is some kind of paradise, because this place depends on fooling the outside world into thinking it’s paradise. Why does a third of the country vote for Geert Wilders? Because it’s a lie, this place is not paradise.
