What is the “Great Replacement” right-wing conspiracy theory? (the Economist)

Introduction by LO: Rather than a right-wing conspiracy theory, the Great Replacement "theory" is - most of all - another example of Philosophy, as a Belief system (eg, my blogs of 2015 Black Twitter versus White Supremacy, and of 2016 White supremacy-2), Of all our beliefs, ideology might be the most stupid one (eg, my 2021 blog: Is ideology responsible for...
