Does this make me epistemically open?

I don’t see how you can “automatically” strip anyone of citizenship without a trial that establishes guilt.  And even if that were the case, the Left doesn’t care about citizenship: for them, non-citizens have the same rights as citizens. Joe Lieberman is supposedly trying to update sedition laws to preremptorily strip citizenship from people who consort with, give aid to, take training from enemies of … Continue reading Does this make me epistemically open?

National Cultural Sabotage

The truth is out.  The British Labour party has intentionally permitted—indeed, encouraged—very high levels of immigration to ensure itself a permanent electoral majority and to undermine the “British” character of British society.  Melanie Phillips: So now the cat is well and truly out of the bag. For years, as the number of immigrants to Britain shot up apparently uncontrollably, the question was how exactly this … Continue reading National Cultural Sabotage

Immigration and Poverty

Mark Steyn comments on a simple but rarely made point: When advanced economies admit ever larger numbers of unskilled workers (plus a chain of relatives through “family reunification”), they are importing poverty. Those who worry about the modesty of gains in median household or per capita income over the past forty years rarely recognize that, given high immigration rates, it’s remarkable that median income has … Continue reading Immigration and Poverty

War by Other Means

It is worth thinking carefully about the Clinton-Bush policy in the Balkans, which so far has led to the alienation of Russia, the creation of Islamic states in Europe, and the encouragement … Continue reading War by Other Means

Milton Friedman Vindicated, Again

Milton Friedman remarked that it’s “just obvious” that one cannot have open borders and a welfare state. To show why, consider this British family, the parents of which immigrated from Pakistan: UNEMPLOYED scrounger Mohammed Salim is getting the state to pay for him, his wife and their ELEVEN kids—because he can’t be bothered to go to work. He quit his £27,000 [$52,968] job teaching maths … Continue reading Milton Friedman Vindicated, Again

European Multiculturalism in Practice

Consider this juxtaposition. Fjordmann reports: The EU’s Justice and Security Commissioner Franco Frattini states that Europe must relax its immigration controls and open the door to an extra 20 million “Africans and Asians” during the next two decades. Most of these “Africans and Asians” come from the predominantly Muslim countries of North Africa and the Greater Middle East. Meanwhile, in Germany (HT: JihadWatch): A crowd … Continue reading European Multiculturalism in Practice
