Michel Houellebecq has come out and said the Great Replacement, which describes the replacement of European natives with non-Europeans across the West, is a “fact” during a wide-ranging discussion with influential French philosopher Michel Onfray.

“The Great Replacement, I was shocked it’s called a theory. It’s not a theory, it’s a fact,” said Houellebecq. “When it comes to immigration, nobody controls anything, that’s the whole problem. Europe will be swept away by this cataclysm.”

“It’s objectively what the figures say,” added Onfray, who said he thinks that the decline of the West is primarily a demographic decline.

The fact that France’s greatest living writer, as he is often described by the mainstream press, has said the Great Replacement is fact will only add to the growing body of intellectuals, academics, and politicians who have increasingly been willing to describe the Great Replacement in public forums.

Both thinkers also discussed Islam, but had different opinions on its trajectory. Onfray said he believes that Islamism “is not such a powerful phenomenon” but rather “a reaction to American power.” He said that Muslims will eventually line up in the West under the banner of consumerist materialism and cast off their religion, just as many other peoples, such as Europeans, have already done to a large extent.

Houellebecq believes otherwise, saying, “When entire territories are under Islamist control, I think acts of resistance will take place. There will be attacks and shootings in mosques.” He then went on to add that he predicts “reverse Bataclans” — a reference to the Islamists who killed over 100 French people in the Bataclan nightclub in Paris.

“You think the civil war is coming, I think it’s already here, quietly,” Onfray replied.
