Ivaylo Ditchev: "Coronavirus brings Europe's borders back"

Written by Mr. Currywurst.

Ivaylo Ditchev is a professor of cultural anthropology at the University of Sofia. First warning lights start flashing. Cultural anthropology is a social science, and we all know what social scientists are. Pro-globalization, pro-multiculturalism, marxists.

Not much rationality is to be expected from their opinions, so let's analyze the different points of Ditchev's article on Deutsche Welle (where else?).
"Hundreds of thousands of migrant workers return home to Bulgaria, Serbia or Romania, only to be welcomed with mixed feelings. On the one hand, "bringing our children back" had been a constant lament in recent decades, now everyone is back in "their place." On the other, there are no jobs to offer to the returnees, especially not in times of crisis. In addition, national economies will badly miss the remittances they used to send home."

This is not just a description of reality, but the lack of questioning implies the wish for the whole system to continue the way it is. Europe is paradise and is supposed to give shelter, answers, money to anyone in need. These globalist clowns feel sad when the money-sucking scheme is halted. They will never demand for the improvement of local conditions out of Germany or Europe. No, corrupts can continue with their looting in their respective countries and the people who vote for them will be victims by default.
"But borders seem to divide the national tissue itself. Racist episodes with Asian-looking citizens in the West may be only a mild prelude of what could follow. In Bulgaria, some are demanding to barricade Roma ghettos, where the contagion is — falsely — thought to be growing; as usual, racist disgust is combined with pseudo-scientific argumentation. If they are barricaded, other Balkan countries will be happy to follow the example."

How borders divide the national tissue? Actually borders or sovereignty give us the security and sense of identity and belonging that our societies need. Regarding the claim for barricades in Roma ghettos, as a racist or discriminatory action is nothing but a rather simplistic approach to the subject. The strategy to isolate slums or small districts where poverty is high is due to the difficulty of implementing self-isolation measures. You can't expect a large family to remain at home, where home is actually a little shack made of pieces of wood, metal plates and plastic in the middle of a favela, in Brazil. The same applies to gypsies, and it's believed that community-isolation could be more effective.

"The name of the illness itself, stubbornly used by the man in the street and the American president, implies ethnicization: a "Chinese virus" is the fault of our enemies, the bat-eaters, and does not have anything to do with ourselves."

Does anybody think of Spain or the Middle East as "our enemies" every time the Spanish flu or MERS (Middle Eastern Respiratory Syndrome) were mentioned? As a matter of fact, the Chinese virus has nothing to do with ourselves. We don't praise or promote the existence of food markets engulfed by the stench of death, slippery sidewalks covered by blood and exotic animals being torn apart while they are still alive. We do eat meat, yes but we don't torture animals (like a dog) until near death and then burn their faces with a blowtorch to inflict more pain. We might have flaws, but we are not that savages.

You love globalization and the "no countries no borders" idea? Go and preach those values in China, one of the most discriminatory countries of the world, go and live there and tell us if you feel fully integrated with the Chinese.

If you think there are no cultural differences, then let's make China more accountable for all this. They should get what they give to the world, and during the last decade nothing but viruses, lies, military bases, secret wars and the ongoing desire for world domination is all the rest of the world has received from the Communist regime.
"The most worrying, yet invisible, border has been drawn between generations. The illness painfully puts young and old in opposition, as it is the latter who appear to be the only ones seriously menaced by it. Thus, the feeling grows that the world economy is being sacrificed in order to save the lives of people who are doomed to die soon anyway. Wouldn't it be better to shut them up some place and let the others acquire "herd immunity?"
The borders between generations were drawn by people from the social sciences and brainwashed left-wing activists. Those who constantly warned us against "angry white old people" voting for the wrong candidates and doing so because they had little life left.

Let's pretend Mr. Ditchev is not creating divisions...

Who gets the feeling that "the world economy is being sacrificed in order to save the lives of people who are doomed to die soon"? Probably Mr. Ditchev is surrounded by the wrong people. We, the ordinary people, are concerned and willing to make an effort in order to take care of our parents and grandparents.
"Furthermore, the elderly pose an ever growing threat to the retirement system, as less young workers replace more retirees; low birth rates — catastrophically low in Eastern Europe — are the fault of the baby-boomer generation as well."
The same old arguments which underline something else that is not being said in a straightforward manner: "our societies are getting older, we need more migrants to keep the whole system from collapsing." The old person is the burden we must get rid of.
Europeans are constantly reminded that they have an expiration date, and that replacement is the solution. However, automation could be an answer (it will whether you like it or not), or the investment in local families as in the case of Hungary where couples have access to free fertility treatments, and subsidies. Regardless of the results of fertility policies, at least they try something in favor of their own people.
"Borders have appeared all of a sudden again in Europe. Can we hope that they will disappear overnight, too?"
Something could be positive from this crisis: migration and globalization will never be the same. The way countries trade with China will change as well. A desire to have independency and the control of production of strategic assets will be finally present. If something needs to vanish for ever here is the globalist, anti-Western ideology of Ditchev and others like him.
