Former Czech president Vaclav Klaus said in his new book that the migrant crisis is comparable to the barbarian invasion of the ancient world which caused large-scale regression in the development of Europe, an event it recovered from only after several centuries.
Klaus, who was president of the Czech Republic from 2003 to 2013, writes that "Europe has been weakened by a ‘leftist utopia' which promotes the idea of mass migration and tries to turn Europeans into dependent clients".
In his book ‘Europe All Inclusive', Klaus predicts that the migrant crisis is far from over. He says that the crisis is a "severely underestimated phenomenon".
Europe's current elites defend "ultimately suicidal, ideologies of multiculturalism," that "promote the notion that migration is a human right, and that the right to migrate leads to further rights and entitlements including social welfare hand-outs for migrants," he writes.
According to Klaus the influx of migrants will not affect the elites or their families. While they safely legislate large proportions of their people to suffering, it is unlikely their personal retribution will ever occur due to them living far away from any migrant affected areas.
The elites are comforted in the knowledge that their era will not be "followed by infamous Biblical floods," the former Czech president concluded.
