"I Don't See Any Borders"

"He who would do good to another must do it in minute particulars. General good is the plea of the scoundrel, hypocrite and flatterer." - William Blake

Occasionally I'll run across crackpot (and always leftist) "libertarians" who claim, "I don't see any borders" when they babble their dangerous and destructive nonsense about open borders.

Guess what - I don't see any property lines, either.

Now of course these leftists do believe in property - their property. And they certainly don't want a family of Africans or Muslims moving into their front yard and camping there permanently. Or moving into their houses.

These people are utter hypocrites. Self-deluded hypocrites.

They also believe (whether they know it or not) that there are no differences between races, ethnic groups and religions - that Africans are equal to Europeans or Islam is equal to Christianity. So it's okay if they move here en masse (they seem to think these people will be good for the economy and the culture - har! har!)

They also hate Christianity and tend to be part of the "I Fucking Love Science" crowd. That proves they know nothing about Christianity or science. Those two particular obsessions have also been part of leftism for hundreds of years. Not that they know it, being uneducated.

The West was founded on Christianity. Without it, no West. For that matter, science was founded on Christianity, although they are clueless about that and believe the exact opposite.

Erik von Kuehnelt-Leddihn makes the argument - and it's a persuasive one - that leftism was founded by the Marquis de Sade, a fanatical atheist and complete nihilist who considered people no better than insects.

About the only leftist people know is Karl Marx. But in-between de Sade and Marx there were two other very influential nuts. One was Henri Saint-Simon, and after him, Charles Fourier.

Fourier was particularly unbalanced, far more than Saint-Simon. He wrote hundreds of pages of detailed fantasies about how people can be re-engineered and moved around like checkers to create the New Man and the New Society (this is something all leftists believe).

People founded several communes based on the ideas of Fourier, including in America (they all failed), which I find odd, since de Sade, Saint-Simon and Fourier were French, and Marx, German. This country was founded on getting away from Europe, and now people were importing its crackpot ideas over here.

If we did have completely open borders we would have the New Man and New Society - New Primitive Man and the New Primitive Society. That's what comes of thinking someone can re-engineer people for their own good - and the road to Hell is paved with good intentions.

Leftists always hate and envy and want to destroy. It's in their nature.

What leftism leads to is easy to predict. But to not know these things - well, you have to be a leftist. Who, again, are completely deluded.

I tend to think of the rank and file leftists as delusional, divorced from reality, but not evil. Their leaders however, who don't actually believe in leftist theory but simply want to control others are evil.

I agree. I think a lot of follower leftists are well-intentioned, but they are just clueless, ignorant and delusional about how life and the world really works. The leftist leaders, on the other hand, know very well what they are doing.

Europe is going to have a hard time with these immigrants:

I must disagree. The leftist isn't remotely delusional. They do not have good intentions. They are well aware that they adhere to no principle other than us vs. them, although in public they like to veil their envy as concern for the unfortunate. They are simply OK with that. Thus you cannot, and should not, negotiate with them. You must always drive them out.

If they're going to get their way (which they will) Europe should at least turn away any single men (which are the majority of these 'refugees').
Only families with children can come in, but only after we've observed no signs of domestic violence.
That guy whose family drowned? Apparently spent the last three years living (safely) in Turkey!
Also, why are Europe allowing these people to shop for countries? Why are they all allowed to go to Germany, France and Britain? Oh wait, benefits!
I didn't hear of any of them wanting to stay in Greece.

An obsession with political ideology seems to be the white man's disease. 99.999..% of libertarians in the world are white, but the policies that libertarians advocate will lead directly to them being replaced by Mexicans who couldn't care less about libertarianism. Even if you convince them of this, they don't care. Libertarianism is like their religion, and how can they still call themselves libertarians if they allow reason, common sense and survival instinct to trump liberty?

It's no different with Republicans. If weren't for Trump, who isn't even really a Republican, they'd only be talking about tax reform and how much they love Israel. Throughout the political spectrum the people in it have confused the map for the territory. The white populations in the US and western Europe will be marginalized minorities in their countries within the near future, overrun by cohesive outsiders who aren't ashamed of their race or religion. When the last libertarian is bludgeoned to death with the last copy of Atlas Shrugged, he'll probably still be bitching about the gold standard.

Here's an excerpt from an editorial written by the Prime Minister of Hungary:

"Let us not forget, however, that those arriving have been raised in another religion, and represent a radically different culture. Most of them are not Christians, but Muslims. This is an important question, because Europe and European identity is rooted in Christianity. Is it not worrying in itself that European Christianity is now barely able to keep Europe Christian? If we lose sight of this, the idea of Europe could become a minority interest in its own continent."

Or as Hillaire Belloc wrote:

"Europe will return to the Faith, or she will perish. The Faith is Europe. And Europe is the Faith."

It doesn't matter if leftists are delusional or evil. Neither is a good option. One is a useful idiot and the other is bringing on willful destruction.

The issue is White GEnocide, nothing else.

White Genocide Defined:

There can be no all White countries anywhere.
There can be no all-White neighbourhoods in the formerly all White nations.
There can be no all White areas in the formerly all White nations.
There can be no all White police forces, in business, in administration, in organizations, no all White anything.

They say there’s no such thing as White Genocide — but they always argue a position that puts us in a world without white people’

The refrain of a leftist: "What's mine is mine and what's yours is mine."

Just like women?

As for me, I've never been unable to get a job because employers were hiring illegal aliens at lower wages, I have been unable to get a job due to my inability to demonstrate I'm not an illegal alien. And this was in the days before 9-11, I can only imagine the rigmarole required to be "certified" for employment by the powers that be in the age of "terrorism."

The ignored elephant in this debate is who is really being hurt and punished by the compliance procedures for these immigration restrictions. It's the same people most enthusiastic about these restrictions claim they want to help--that is, native-born Americans (and presumably Australians and Europeans as well) with few skills, connections or money but who still want to work.

Will a President Cruz or Trump sign a bill requiring everybody to provide blood and stool samples every six months to be checked against a database of real Americans and foreigners with right Visa Stamps or else be forced to quit their job or go to jail? Will we need to get affidavits signed be three police officers and two social workers testifying to our legality?

Bob, I get that you wouldn't want an African or Muslim family camping in your yard, but would you want a country where you could be detained and your money seized until you could sufficiently "prove" you're not an African or Muslim according to whatever standards some bureaucrat pulled out of his bumhole? It was Kafka, not Orwell or Huxley, who was truly the greatest prophet of the twentieth century.

I am not opposed to immigration restriction on principle; I don't believe our country "belongs" to everybody on the grounds of some leftist, multicultural slop. But here's where I draw the line. If Johnny Law thinks I'm an illegal alien, or that I'm hiring illegal aliens the burden of proof is on him. Why should I have to send the G-men the right papers at my own considerable time and expense so I can work or hire another to work for me?

I'm sure you are angry as hell at those who call illegal aliens "undocumented workers." The irony is both of you think you're talking about the same people. Most "undocumented workers," or more precisely, wannabee workers, are American born and raised, but poor. And the illegal aliens have all the fake documents they need

Stool samples? What for? A single hair is enough. Or a RFID chip to bypass the procedure entirely.

Marcus Tullius Cicero said...

A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.
