As NGOs, we Identitarians are almost exclusively dedicated to the most urgent problem of our time: The Great Replacement. As long as this process takes place, everything else becomes a secondary priority. Our opponents can not agree on whether they should denounce or promote it. What, then, is the The Great Replacement actually?
Short and simple: The Great Exchange is the process at the end of which the indigenous population becomes a minority in its own homeland. Its the end-result of a low birth rate combined with mass immigration. I will show this on the example Austria.
Birth-rate and Immigration
The birth rate here in Austria has fallen massively in recent decades (especially since the 1960s). According to the Austrian Integration Fund, the birth rate of all Austrian nationals (including those with a migratory background) is currently 1.34. The key figure says nothing less than the fact that from the unification of 2 Austrians only 1.3 Austrians emerge. This low birth-rate means that in 2015, for example, almost 12,000 Austrians died more than were born.
A massive decline in population should naturally be the result.
But how can it be then, that every few months we get the victorious reports in the mainstream media that: „Austria is growing!“
Correct: So many people are migrating to Austria that this population decline is not only balanced out but even reversed. For example: In 2015, 214,410 people moved to Austria, only 15,752 of which were Austrian nationals. Comparing the start of 2017 with the start of 2016, then a further 73.215 people lived in Austria due to immigration.
Another factor to consider: is that migrants have a higher birth rate. While the Austrians have a negative birth-to-death ratio, the number of non-Europeans is increasing as a result of their positive birth-to-death ratio:
Emigration and Assimilation
Two factors work against this trend: Emigration and assimilation. Though assimilation (integration of immigrants into native society) happens very slowly. Even the minimum requirement, namely a solid knowledge of German language, shows this: calculations based on the census data of 1991 and 2001 estimate that only about 3 to a maximum of 5 per cent of the naturalized and foreign immigrants have switched to German as a means of communication.
The second factor working against the Great Replacement is the emigration of immigrants. For example, in 2015, 80,141 people without Austrian citizenship had emigrated. If 198,658 non-Austrians had not been immigrating at the same time, this would have resulted in a reduction in the population with an immigration background. Under current conditions, on the other hand, there remains a net inflow of 118,517 non-Austrians.
As a consequence, emigration and assimilation can not counterbalance mass immigration. The number of non-Austrians in the population as a whole increases – The Great Replacement is the result. Symbolically put, this development looks like this: While the total population of Austria grows, native Austrians represent a smaller and smaller part within it.
The Great Replacement is also visible in the change of the number of foreigners in Austria in the last 50 years:
Today, according to the latest official figures, the population consists of 14.6% foreign-citizens and 5.8% foreign-born Austrian citizens.
Austrian-born Austrian citizens with an immigration background (2nd and 3rd generation) are not even included in these statistics. Excluding the third generation, 21 per cent of the Austrian population is likely to have an immigrant background.
The figures of the official statistics also point to the fact that Austrians without an immigrant background are also considerably older than people with an immigrant background because of the low birth-rate. This means an acceleration of The Great Replacement due to an increasingly rapid shrinking of the local population:
Where does this lead to?
These statistics can only show one trend: Firstly, they are inaccurate and distorting because children and youth with a third-generation migrant background simply disappear from the statistics. On the other hand, statistical assimilation is not sufficient.
But what can be said on the basis of these figures is that the mass immigration is so dramatic that compensation by assimilation and emigration is impossible, as well as that we Austrians, with frantic steps steer towards becoming a minority in our own country.
In 2014, University Prof. Herbert Vonach wrote a brochure on Prognosis of the Population for the FPÖ Academy, in which the process is illustrated. This „Base-scenario“ describes the situation if an immigration stop had already been imposed in 2016:
As you can see, a mere immigration stop would not be sufficient for Austria to remain a country of Austrians. In order to counter this process effectively, it would take three countermeasures:
- Remigration: The Reversal of Immigration Flows. Instead of a net immigration as before, there must be a net emigration. This is achieved by massively limiting immigration. On the part of the emigration, the return to their home countries is promoted, while criminals and illegal immigrants are deported.
- Leitkultur: Austria is Austrian. By enforcing the hegemony of Austrian culture in public areas, Leitkultur has a twofold effect. On the one hand, it promotes assimilation by creating the need to adopt our language and customs. On the other hand, it promotes the remigration of all those who do not want to recognize Austria as an Austrian state.
- Family-oriented politics: Promotion of children’s needs. By balancing out the financial burdens of having children and providing for a social recognition of parents, the state would raise the birth rate and turn the birth-to-death ratio into a positive one.
