    snapper,

    not sure where DOR is trying to force any country to do anything...just stating what he believes is the root reason for rejecting Muslim/African migration.
    There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "My ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."- Isaac Asimov

    that's not to say there are other issues involved. i believe in opening up immigration, but on the other hand i don't believe in -unlimited- immigration either...and there's -some- room for cultural considerations in that.
    Some national identities are going to include religious or racial dimensions. It's not really our problem if Poland says you have to be Catholic and White to move there, or Israel decides you need to be Jewish to move there. Not everyone has to share our ideals, and our international institutions should be about advancing our common interests and not imposing said ideals.

    If we are interested in imposing our ideals, we should just amp up military spending and start appointing some Imperial Governors to rule the barbarians.
