The Past is a Future Country

£14.95

Since the 1960s, the West has moved ever-leftwards. ‘Equality’ and ‘feelings’ are central to the New Religion that rejects all traditional values. Yet beneath the institutionally dominant ‘Left’ stews a growing and restless ‘Right’. How has this fractured situation come about? What will the future hold?

In The Past is a Future Country, the authors trace it back to the Industrial Revolution. Darwinian selection massively weakened, meaning that, for the first time in Western history, the selfish, sick and stupid could survive and reproduce on a monumental scale, undermining our religious, group-oriented culture. Now the West is scourged by an epidemic of narcissists, competing to signal their individuality and moral superiority. But their ‘fight for equality’ is really a fight for self-promotion. Reflecting this runaway individualism, Westerners increasingly don’t have children, save for those who are genetically resistant to this onslaught — the staunchly conservative and religious: the eventual inheritors of the earth.

But there is a dark storm brewing in the demographic data that the authors have analysed. There is an accelerating growth in the population of dangerously unintelligent and antisocial people that social welfare systems cannot sustain for much longer. The developed world will pass away, and the global population that depends on it will crash, in the greatest Malthusian Collapse of all time. Yet all is not lost. The authors show how a resistant class of intelligent, religious conservatives will band together to preserve enclaves of civilization that may survive most of the coming apocalypse, and from its ashes rebuild a new world: A Neo-Byzantium.

2 reviews for The Past is a Future Country

  1. Dr. Mike McCulloch, University of Plymouth

    “In every age there are a few with the courage to write freely. It is rare that they also have a great sense of humour, but in Prof. Dutton we have the whole package. In this bold and insightful book, Dutton and Rayner-Hilles argue that our civilization is collapsing due to dysgenic demographics, but that refuges will emerge, like Byzantium from Rome. If you want to know where to escape to, then read this book!”

  2. Prof. Heiner Rindermann, Technical University of Chemnitz, Germany

    “A stimulating, provocative and in-depth treatise. The Past is a Future Country is an exciting, shocking and thought-provoking book about a possible future of all of us. For all who are able to think outside the box.”
