From Empires to Vampires: The Downfall of the West
Special Contribution
By Jugraj Singh
A Dracula with a woman
"The history of all hitherto existing society is the history of class struggles." — Karl Marx

I have always wanted to know why vampires generally bite the neck of their victims. I have seen many vampire films such as the genre and cinematic-myth defining classic Nosferatu and some modern films such as Van Helsing, Underworld, and the Blade series.

While in college, I read the unabridged edition of Abraham (Bram) Stoker’s Dracula. A theory is explained in the text that Dracula raped his victims, but due to Stoker living in the Victorian era, even mentioning this was socially prohibited. Therefore, the vampire bite on the neck is symbolic of intercourse, and evidence for this theory is in the facts that Dracula tricks his female victims into inviting him into their bedrooms usually at night, and due to the bite there is an intimate exchange of bodily fluids. I used to think of vampires just as scary monsters who drink the blood of humans, and werewolves as wolf-human hybrids who transform during the full moon.

A closer look at the origins and depiction of vampires and werewolves in modern cinema reveal that vampires symbolize rich people (the capitalist elite) and are predominantly white and northwestern European; werewolves symbolize the poor and working class and are more racially diverse (black and brown). I first noticed this in the original Underworld. The vampires live in a palatial mansion, drive luxury cars and dress, behave and speak as English aristocrats. The werewolves are dressed similar to poor and homeless people, and live underground in deserted subway tunnels. One of the first major action sequences, an intense fight between the vampires and werewolves, takes place in a subway station.

Further in the Underworld series, it is explained that vampires and werewolves derived from a common ancestor, but the vampires were able to enslave the werewolves. In Underworld: Rise of the Lycans, Lucian, the leader of the werewolves delivers a powerful speech about liberation to his brother werewolves (which is quite relevant to the East and the Third World) all who are kept shackled and imprisoned by the vampires, “Is this what you want to be? Their entertainment? Their playthings? The pets cowering beneath the whip and then fighting amongst ourselves. Is this what you want? I’ve lived by their rules my entire life. I’ve protected them, envied them. And for what? To be treated like an animal? We are not animals! We do have a choice. We can choose to be more than this. We can be slaves or we can be Lycans!”

Blade is an African-American vampire hunter who is a human-vampire hybrid with a genetic aberration which makes him immune to ultraviolet radiation (i.e. sunlight), and therefore is given the title “Daywalker.” There is a scene in Blade: Trinity where Blade is shown the sophisticated methods of blood harvesting by the vampires. The vampires own blood farming facilities which are factories where rows upon rows of humans are placed in drug-induced comas (making them brain dead), hanged from the ceiling and wrapped in plastic (resembling collectible trading cards in plastic sleeves) while their blood is continuously collected. When the familiar (human servant of the vampires) is questioned where all of these humans came from, he answers that there are processing centers in all major American cities and that at any given time, there are between 2 and 3 million homeless Americans, and that regarding these homeless people, the vampires “just pull them in off the streets. Nobody cares about them. We’re doing this country a service, really.”

These factories are symbolic of the factories of western capitalists who are the vampires of today, the blood collection is symbolic of the exploitation and abuse of the poor, the homeless and people from Third World countries who work in these factories, and the drug-induced comas are symbolic of the lives of the workers who are made to work day in and day out for their whole lives without having the ability to wake up or leave while the capitalist elite profit from their misery.

The birth rates and fertility rates are plummeting in western imperialist countries. The white race is marrying late, divorcing early, and having much fewer children, while some are even medically and surgically altering their biological gender (Bruce to Caitlyn Marie Jenner). The western imperialist countries cannot exist without youth and their fresh blood. This is causing the western capitalist elite vampires to become desperate for Third World blood. In addition to the Third World brain drain, youth drain is also occurring.

A few years ago, I attended a conference where a Punjabi Canadian was one of the speakers. He explained that to raise a Canadian child to the age of 18, it costs the Canadian government one million Canadian dollars. Therefore, the Canadian capitalist elite vampires (aka Trudeau and Friends) save one million dollars for every Third World young adult of at least 18 years of age who is lured to Canada. Furthermore, the Canadian universities which these Third World students apply to charge tuition fees more than triple the tuition fees which are being charged to Canadian students for the same degrees.

Canada is an unusual western imperialist country because it is not a truly independent country, but a Dominion. According to The Canadian Encyclopedia, Dominion comes from the Latin Dominus, which means master, and the term Dominion means that which is mastered or ruled. Canadians, therefore, are by definition, servants (or slaves) of their British masters.

In May 1869, a bill to make Dominion Day a public holiday was debated in the House of Commons, but was withdrawn after many members of Parliament raised objections (Forsey & Hayday, 2006). Senator Robert Carrall of British Columbia again attempted to have this bill debated and it was passed by Parliament in 1879, and Dominion Day was made a public holiday (Forsey & Hayday, 2006). Dominion Day was celebrated in Canada for over a century until Vaudreuil MP Hal Herbert proposed a private member’s bill to change the name to Canada Day in July, 1982, which was passed by the House of Commons and ratified by the Senate in a few months (Forsey & Hayday, 2006).

Canada not being an independent country is the reason that the Prime Minister, like Count Dracula, has much more power than other western democratic countries. According to a report by National Post, the Canadian PM’s powers have been described by Constitutional scholars as “near-dictatorial,” and compared to other western leaders, the Canadian PM has very few checks and balances on his power (Hopper, 2023). The PM can appoint anyone he wants to without oversight, such as Senators, Supreme Court Justices, the Governor-General, the Head of the RCMP, the Head of the Canadian Museum of History (and many other civil servants); he can shut down Parliament for up to one year; he can call elections whenever he wants and also make the elections last as long as he wants (Hopper, 2023).

It would come as no surprise if Justin Trudeau has the lowest IQ of all Canadian Prime Ministers. It is Canada’s bad luck in choosing the wrong son of Pierre Trudeau to lead Canada. As compared to Justin, Alexandre “Sacha” Trudeau is a remarkable intellectual, journalist and filmmaker who understands and deeply respects the East and the Third World, and has very strong anti-imperialist views.

Alexandre has made documentaries about the Third World (Liberia, the Secret War, Embedded In Baghdad, Secure Freedom, Refuge and The New Great Game) and has even written articles and a book which praises the Third World and its leaders (Barbarian Lost, Travels in the New China). Alexandre was given the nickname “Sacha” by his Father in honor of Russian literature and Russian culture.

A report by National Post discussed Alexandre’s support and admiration of Cuba’s legendary revolutionary leader Fidel Castro in a 2006 article he wrote in the Toronto Star, and quoted him on his views praising China, which in his opinion, never would have succeeded without the “Unity and organizational power” of the Communist Party of China (Hopper, 2023).

During a CBC interview in 2016, Alexandre said Canada “disappeared as an independent voice, as a country that makes its own decisions about things… When's the last time you think: 'Well, Canada really has a position that is unlike any other?' We've kind of fallen into a confused follower nation." Alexandre feels that Canada could find glory once again by pursuing an “independently sophisticated relationship with China.”

Alexandre, a young man, is very wise for his age, a gift which he received from his Father, and it is this wisdom which helps him to admire Chinese culture and its strong emphasis on family history, and how the Chinese culture places the collective (the family) above the individual: "What could be more true, that the only thing really real about us in the long run, is what we manage to receive from those who came before, and what we manage to pass on to those who follow…" “We want to be a long-term friend to China and be helpful as it evolves, and we have a lot to learn from them too. Not just Canada but the West in general."

Canada’s bad luck in choosing the wrong son of Pierre Trudeau is not nearly as bad as Ukraine’s curse. Ukraine is a Christian majority country and demographic data confirms this (Sousa, 2018):

1. Eastern Orthodox 65.4%

2. Unaffiliated 16.3%

3. Other Christian 7.1%

4. Eastern Greek Catholic 6.5%

5. Protestant 1.9%

6. Islam 1.1%

7. Latin Catholic 1.0%

8. Jew 0.2%

Combining all of the denominations of Christianity results in 81.9% of Ukraine’s population being Christian compared to 0.2% of Ukraine’s population being Jewish.

Zelensky is a very corrupt leader who is responsible for the terrorist drone attack on Moscow. Such attacks are instigated and applauded by the western imperialist countries, but will not accomplish anything as they only speed up the grave-digging process for Ukraine and the west. Ukraine is cursed because Zelensky does not belong to the majority religion, Christianity, as he is a Jew. If Zelensky was Christian, he would be sincere in his efforts to work for peace with Russia as to stop the unnecessary killing of his Ukrainian Christian brothers. Because Zelensky is a Jew, he could care less how many Ukrainian Christians die, as he is being paid handsomely to keep the Ukraine-Russia conflict going. Most of the countries of the west are Christian majority countries. This is the ugly reality and hypocrisy of the western imperialist countries: they are providing weapons, money, intelligence and resources to a Jew to kill Ukraine’s Christians while being Christians themselves!

The story of Third World brain drain and exploitation is particularly acute in America. According to the American Association of Physicians of Indian Origin (AAPI), Indian Americans constitute less than 1 percent of the American population but account for 9 percent of American doctors, with 1 out of every 7 doctors serving Americans being of Indian origin (Kulkarni, 2020). A study conducted by the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) found that India provides the largest number of international medical graduates to the U.S (Kulkarni, 2020).

A report prepared by the National Science Foundation's National Center for Science and Engineering Statistics (NCSES) found that India sends the largest number of engineers and scientists to the US with about 950,000 immigrant scientists and engineers coming from India in 2013, an 85% increase from 2003 (Chaturvedi, 2016).

In the decade between 2003 and 2013, the report found the number of immigrant scientists and engineers increased from 3.4 million to 5.2 million; among the Asian countries, India continued to be the top country of birth for immigrant scientists and engineers in the United States; since 2003, the number of scientists and engineers from the Philippines increased 53 percent and the number from China (including Hong Kong and Macau) increased 34 percent; and in 2013, among all 5.2 million immigrant scientists and engineers in the US, 57 percent were born in Asia; 20 percent in North America (excluding the US), Central America, the Caribbean or South America; 16 percent in Europe; 6 percent in Africa and less than 1 percent in Oceania (Chaturvedi, 2016). From this report, it is clear that most of the immigrant scientists and engineers in the US are from the Third World.

A major problem for the American Establishment is that the white middle class is becoming increasingly frustrated with the American Establishment. This white middle class frustration is leading to the increased incidence of sporadic acts of violence such as school and mass shootings, in which tragically, both the shooters and victims are overwhelmingly white.

While growing up, I had American friends who belonged to families who owned farms and orchards in the Pacific Northwest. Years later, I met these friends and their families again. Many told me how their parents and grandparents had begun selling the farms and orchards into parcels of a few acres. I asked why this was happening and was told that there was no money in farming nowadays and there was a lot of money to be made in real estate, since many retirees and executives, particularly from Microsoft and Boeing, wanted to spend the last few years of their pre-nursing home lives in the country. I have travelled to many countries and have noticed this disturbing phenomenon of farmland being converted into real estate.

Dr. Abraham Maslow gave a new concept to modern psychology through his Hierarchy of Needs, which can be thought of as a pyramid with the base being physiological needs for survival and progressing to the apex, which represents intellectual needs and spirituality. The most basic needs for human survival consist of air, water, food, clothing and shelter. Almost all of these needs have been heavily commercialized.

“You cannot tell a hungry child that you gave him food yesterday.” – Zimbabwean Proverb

The American Establishment has cleverly figured out that by monopolizing farmland and pitting two basic needs of humans, shelter and food, against each other, there is potential to control and indenture, if not outrightly enslave humans. It defies logic why we are allowing farmland to decrease in front of our own eyes while the population is growing, and will grow from 8 billion at present to 10.4 billion by the end of this century: how will we feed all of these people?

This lust for control over humans is exactly why Bill Gates (America’s Count Dracula) has become the largest farmland owner in the US (O’Keefe, 2021). Gates owns a total of 268,984 acres of which 242,000 acres are American farmland spread across 19 states (O’Keefe, 2021).

The world needs an alternative model of development. The west is incapable of bringing the changes necessary to stop pathologic climate change and Third World brain, youth and blood drain since they are profiting from the exploitation of humans and earth’s resources. The East and the Third World have the collective knowledge, wisdom, experience and reverence for nature which are necessary to fulfill human needs, provide humans with dignity and respect, and achieve environmental sustainability. This is precisely why the present unipolar world order must be changed to a multipolar world order.

With the spirit of brotherhood and peaceful coexistence, the East and the Third World, led by Russia, China and India, can establish a multipolar world, save the environment from western-assured disaster, and save humanity from western imperialist vampires. When I was a student at University, I had the honor of listening to and personally meeting Bobby Seale, who co-founded the Black Panther Party, and Professor Angela Davis, a Marxist leader and member of the Black Panther Party. I conclude with the wise words of respected leaders from around the world who have understood the truth of western imperialism and struggled against it.

“Judging from the experience of the European War, imperialism renders no great benefit to any nation, whereas liberty for all nationalities is the only principle by which humanity will ever be saved.” — Dr. Sun Yat-sen

“If it were necessary to give the briefest possible definition of imperialism, we should have to say that imperialism is the monopoly stage of capitalism.” — Vladimir Lenin

“We would consider it our moral duty to lend all support to the ending of colonialism and imperialism so that people everywhere are free to mould their own destiny.” — Lal Bahadur Shastri

“We must all build national unity, build all revolutionary forces, into one powerful wave to sweep away our main enemy, political imperialism and economic imperialism.” — Sukarno

“Racism is very characteristic of imperialism. Racism is very characteristic of capitalism.” — Hugo Chavez

“The people of Nicaragua were suffering oppression. This made us develop an awareness which eventually led us to commit ourselves to the struggle against the domination of the capitalists of our country in collusion with the U.S. government, i.e. imperialism.” — Daniel Ortega

“Like Nemesis of Greek tragedy, the central problem of America after the Civil War, as before, was the black man: those four million souls whom the nation had used and degraded, and on whom the South had built an oligarchy similar to the colonial imperialism of today, erected on cheap colored labor and raising raw material for manufacture.” — W. E. B. Du Bois

“As a black woman, my politics and political affiliation are bound up with and flow from participation in my people's struggle for liberation, and with the fight of oppressed people all over the world against American imperialism.” — Angela Davis
