The Open Borders Consensus

Hell, everybody's for open borders! The Republicans, the Democrats, the communists, the socialists, the liberals, the neoconservatives, the libertarians, all the churches. You name it. It's much easier to list those of us who are against open borders. A much tidier list. The only people against open borders are traditional conservatives — Buchanan people, mostly — and the group I like to call, as I call myself, "libertarian nationalists." Those two last groups overlap a lot. Oh, and the vast majority of the American people, who, like regular non-crazy people everywhere, want to have their own country and not turn it into a free boarding house for the rest of the world.

Just listen to the tube. We hear from the Wall Street crowd, the rich and super-rich, who want lots and lots of immigrants to keep their labor cheap. We hear from the hipster liberals, who think it's cool to have lots of ethnic restaurants and cheap nannies and landscape workers. They overlap with the Wall Street crowd.

This nonsense is inevitable, when you believe in the interchangeability, the fungibility of human beings. To the rich capitalists, people are simply economic units, to be exploited fully, and the more of them the better. This is also the case with the bulk of libertarians, who are so obsessed with their ideology, they can't or won't understand that different kinds of people are different kinds of people, and that only a few kinds of people can fit into their libertarian paradigm. Or want to.

And the liberals also want to build up the welfare state and make as many people as possible dependent on the government. Plain old Americans are resistant to that, with their archaic notions about self-reliance and good citizenship, so the easiest thing is to open the borders and welcome in millions of people who aren't resistant at all.

And then there are those who just plain hate America, the White race, and Western Civilization. The best way to destroy all these hateful things is to swamp them with, again, millions of immigrants.

All these views are a part of the amorphous ideology called "egalitarianism," which permeates all the ideologies.

Steve Sailer understands all this, and the history of it all. He writes:

Vox: "The Case for Open Borders"
Quibcag: The little communist girl is all over the net. I don't know where she originated.
