My response to Nicholas Kristof's self-righteous demand that the West (governments and people) should welcome an endless stream of poor-world refugees and immigrants into their already overpopulated countries.
We should indeed "think of Sousa Mendes’s heroism in today’s context", which is VERY different from that of more than 70 years ago, when global population was barely one third of what it is today.
The West, certainly western Europe, is OVERPOPULATED already. The last thing we need is more people, and what we need even less is people of different race and culture from our own, because this invariably leads to ethnic tensions and conflict.
For posterity's sake, Nick, open your eyes!
" . . history eventually sides with those who help refugees, not with those who vilify them"
I'm not "vilifying" refugees, or poor-world immigrants, who understandably want to settle in the wealthy West, and I would ask you, Nick, and your "progressive" colleagues, to stop vilifying those of us who oppose you in wanting to allow an endless stream of refugees and immigrants into the West, which ultimately can only end in disaster, not just for those fleeing here, but also for the West's Native (still largely white) population.
Your good intentions are paving the way to hell, which you are unable to see, because a previous generation of academics made a taboo of viewing their own species from an evolutionary perspective - an overreaction to the Nazis having hijacked and abused, for their own evil purposes, the half-baked ideas of social Darwinism.
Our situation is dire and the only way to understand it is from an evolutionary perspective (see BLOG in which I elaborate).
