Paris Burning: How empires end

The Romans conquered the barbarians—and the barbarians conquered Rome.

So it goes with empires.  And comes now the penultimate chapter in the history of the empires of the West.

Colonization of the mother countries by subject peoples is the last chapter in the history of empires—and the next chapter in the history of the West—that is now coming to a close.

This from Pat Buchanan, who fears and is threatened by the thought of large numbers of non-Anglos living in the same country as him. Me, I welcome it. Still, his point about the end of empire being when the colonizer needs all that cheap labor at home is valid. Imperialism sows the seeds of its own destruction (or transformation.)
