Vox and Matt muse on the eternal(ly bad) effects of mass migration and stupidly allowing foreigners to enter a society and then dominate it.
Not only will you not get rid of the Dane, but the Dane will fundamentally alter your society, amend it in order to make it more to his liking, and as Machiavelli observed, eventually rule over you. Which is why, as the great Israeli historian Martin van Creveld has pointed out, immigration is war and war is immigration.
Although, as William the Conqueror demonstrated, it is possible to extinguish the Dane through extraordinary means.
Are Amerikans capable of extraordinary means? I’m guessing “no.” We’ll discuss something similar in this week’s column.
