Bower is gay, and frequently vacationed in Europe. He saw the changes with each trip which motivated his 2007 book, While Europe Slept. It is a short book and an easy read, and explains everything we are seeing today, from butchered UK soldiers to burning cars in France and Sweden.
MoonBattery posted this video today. Watch for the [REFRESHING] politically incorrect language from the female editor near the end. This too was predicted by Bower.

He predicted that, at some point, Europe will swing to the absolute opposite position with tight immigration laws and even mass deportations. That seemed a possibility back in 2007 when we read his book. Further, we shared our book with a gay friend who was also a frequent traveler in Europe and he agreed that Europeans can be quick to take 180-degree positions as radical as Bower suggests.

We didn't always live bug-free.
We once rented an apartment in Garden Grove, CA (called by the locals: Garbage Grove). We shared it with a guy in a wheel chair who'd go around and tell people he was a Vietnam Vet, when in fact he got high one day and surfed
We remember vividly the swarms of cockroaches that would come from, and retreat into, the kitchen counter under the sink. Our
Instead, we deployed weapons of mass destruction and took back our apartment. We probably took a couple years off of our life and risked our future offspring to unsightly birth defects, but we never once felt regret.
