– Thought crimes are one of those things that everyone opposes in theory and loves in practice (more here).

– Anomaly UK on the Modern Structure.

Mangan:

But the progressives invented a game changer, and any general understanding of democracy, leftism, and reaction must grapple with it, and that is mass immigration of culturally incompatible people, and population displacement. A people can perhaps function well and promote their interests under many types of government, but if their government is hell bent on replacing them, all bets are off.

A good point, but I’d argued that importing a new people is a component of democracy, not something that was added on later.

– Despite massive differences in incomes (in 2010 whites in DC have a median income of $101,000, while blacks in DC have a median income of $39,000) impact must apparently still be non-disparate. Does this mean we can dispense with theory that poverty causes crime? (Note that the mainstream libertarians are firmly on the side of those accusing DC police (mostly black themselves) of thought crimes).

Jayman looks at who is having children.

– Isn’t it only fair to note that the retarded combination of birthright citizenship, chain migration, refugee fraud, a cradle-to-grave welfare state, lack of employment verification and lack of identification for voting pretty much requires perfect immigration enforcement, unless of course you have other motives?

Heh.

– You’d think someone would have learned from the fact that the same thing happened with hate crimes.

– What will happen to people-that-do-jobs-Americans-won’t-do when there are no more jobs Americans won’t do? I guess they’ll just be used to stir up ethnic strife.

    I’m curious; what do you mean by “importing a new people is a component of democracy, not something that was added on later”? I just don’t even know what you mean. It sounds like it’s either a statement about an innate property of democracy, or a statement about what the original historical democracy was originated in order to perform. I don’t know enough about either… I’d think I would, since my minor is in ancient Greek and Latin. I know of many wars that were fought because one group wanted the right to vote… The wars to let Italians into Roman citizenship actually did play a huge part in destroying the Roman Republic (and beginning the Empire).

      It’s always to the advance of one party/faction/group to expand the electorate when any outcomes depend on elections. Determining who is a citizen is as old as democracy itself, isn’t it?

    Hmm, I’ll get more votes if I expand the franchise to poor whites. Hmm, I’ll get more votes if I bring in poor immigrants from the periphery of Europe. Hmm, I’ll get more votes if I expand the franchise to women. Hmm, I’ll get more votes if I expand the franchise to racial minorities. Hmm, I’ll get more votes if I bring in non-white legal immigrants. Hmm, I’ll get more votes if I allow anyone who can sneak across the Mexican border to become a voting citizen.

      The ultimate logic: I’ll get more votes if everyone, anywhere on Earth, can vote in US elections.

        I’ll get more votes by expanding the sphere of who I give goodies to or what behavior I deem acceptble. Any turn rightward automatically discards voters.

        Hooray we can vote! Let us never forget those bastards (or anyone the media tells us resembles) who resisted this noble movement.

    yeah — except the roman republic wasn’t a democracy. and the marian reforms, which lowered the property qualification for citizenship, were in response to grievous military exigencies
