Interestingly CHADAMAN writes " I don't have to taste shit in order to realize it tastes bad! ". This is exactly what I goes through my mind as I read his comments.
If Ron Paul and his son Rand can change politic from being just an endless repetition of clichés and platitudes then they would have done something remarkable in history. The last time America thought philosophically was when the Constitution was being drafted. What a truly remarkable family.
"we are fighting them over there so we don't have to fight them over here" is exactly what I heard during the Vietnam war. I thought it ludicrous then and its just as stupid now. Sadly it's an argument that is easy to swallow and it all too easily consumed by too many people.
I don't see a solution to this problem. You see it is not just the USA that has this difficulty with immigration. Most Western European countries have experienced similar circumstances. My prognosis is that no matter what is done now the tide has been set. Long after all our deaths in say 100 tears time the nature of society will have completely changed. The population of the USA and most western European countries will be quite distinct from what it is now. I also predict that no one will remember how it was in the past. The history that we are living through will be erased.
I think all this is set in motion and that no matter what is done the course will be the same. In the USA it will be like what happened with the Native Indians. For a long time their way of life proceeded in a stable way and then in a few decades it vanished for ever never to re-emerge. We are at such a point in history now. Try as you might you will not change this flow. All is now lost.
I also got halfway through then I recalled your tendency towards parody and satire.
