“I see that American progressives are going to make the same mistake that European progressives made. Fail to realize that strict immigration is basically

“Let's not be ridiculous here. Of course there are. Scandinavian nations have done quite well for themselves.”

“They might have done but they are not socialist, they are welfare capitalist.

Socialism involves the public ownership of the means of production, something that does not apply to the Scandinavian countries but does apply to such states as Cuba and North Korea.”

“I am the product of a mixed marriage. If anyone should want diversity to work it should be me. Nevertheless, I can not ignore the data. Diversity is highly correlated with societal dysfunction and low GDP.

http://www[dot]washingtonpost[dot]com/blogs/worldviews/wp/2013/05/16/a-revealing-map-of-the-worlds-most-and-least-ethnically-diverse-countries/”

harmlesstree on May 27, 2014 at 15:35:34

“The U.S, Canada, Switzerland, Belgium, Singapore have low GDP's and are dysfunctional.

The fact that the most diverse regions in the world are in Africa demonstrates the different varieties, and arbitrariness, of it, of diversity. Westerners, within their countries, would place all Africans under the category of black, or African, rgardless of their tribe, which would actually lead to more homogeneity. The tribal structure of traditional African society still exists. If African becomes more develop this tribal diversity will be mitigated, and in time ( perhaps - and in some places) it will disappear as a new nationalism emerges.

And the apparent homogeneity of European countries, like France, is the product of the emerging ethno-nationalism that has developed over the centuries, which is predicated on very diverse base. This diverse base has contributed to make-up of France. Modern is France ( apart from recent immigration) is comprised of Gauls, Franks, Romans, Burgundians, Greeks, Celts, Normans, other Germanic people, Alsatians, Corsicans.

A country, or civilization, that lack diversity is cutting itself off from the contributions of others.”

“I do not care what scripture says. I do not care what the "proper" interpretations of Christianity and Islam are. I care what people think.

Percentage of the population that favors removing the hands of thieves (pg. 52):

Malaysia: 66%
Pakistan: 88%
Afghanistan: 81%
Palestine: 76%

Percentage of the population that favors stoning adulterers (pg. 54):

Similarly, how is inviting refugees from these nations not an act of hostility toward our gay neighbors?

Gudule Martens on May 27, 2014 at 15:12:51

“A lot of the refugees we take in (not invite) out of humanitarian reasons are victims of the attitudes you describe. In practice, in every day life in Europe none of the muslims stone people. You know that don't you?

And btw, I'm married to a woman. According to you the people I work with are hostile to me? They hide that pretty well. Next time I see my friend who fled from Iran because of his politial views, I will ask them when I can expect a stoning from him.

I abhor the awfull sides of the islam as much as the next person, but the way to change imo is to actually interact with them. I see glorious, ambitious Moroccan girls doing really well in our schools and workplaces, without a headscarf. That is the way to change at least here in Europe.”

“80 percent of Americans are Christians, but no one is pushing for adulterers to be stoned to death, as the Bible commands. Sounds like you're worried over nothing. Or more accurately, you're looking for something to be worried about.”

“Islam is a diverse religion. However, the PEW data reveals some commonalities. The understanding that adulterers and apostates should be put to death appears to be a majority (if not a significant minority) opinion in the religion.”

“Refugees to these nations are usually socially conservative. That is why it is a bit perplexing to me that my fellow liberals are so eager to recieve them. Are there bigger issues to tackle? Sure (economics). But leaving the front door open is a mistake, a mistake that could have been easily corrected by any sensible liberal. It is very depressing that it took a fringe borderline fascist group to point out an obvious truth. The front door needs to be closed.”

Gudule Martens on May 27, 2014 at 07:00:48

“Speaking for my country: the only period we actually had the front door open was when the conservatists were in power. Industry needed people to do the work. After that the front door was closed and the backdoor just a little bit open. Nobody is advocating opening them further, only to house some of the victims of wars that more often then not the USA has some hand in.”

“A company I once worked for hired five, but it was through a temp agency, and everyone of them had a green card issued in their name. They flew back and forth from Charlotte to Mexico City with no problem. From all outward appearances they were legal....but they weren't. The whole immigration thing isn't as cut and dried as people think. What do we do with children or adults that have lived their whole lives here and know no other life and don't even speak Spanish? What do we do with those that have served in our military?”
