Immigration and National Survival

A discussion of immigration today is nothing less than a debate about what your nation is going to be tomorrow. Will it be relegated to the history books like the Alans, Angles, Franks, Frisii, and Goths, or will it continue to write history? Is it worthy to do so? These are legitimate questions that should be tackled by legitimate thinkers, not people who hide a visceral hatred of Western civilization inside a Trojan horse proclaiming the equality of all peoples.

When pondering our obsession with immigration, I’m reminded of how people in the ridiculous dystopian film Idiocracy were watering their crops with an energy drink called Brawndo. And even though the crops weren’t growing, the suggestion to try water instead was met with the following conditioned response in the drink’s defense: “It’s got what plants crave! It’s got electrolytes!” No one knew what electrolytes were. No one could explain why they were in Brawndo. It was all sloganeering.

And so it is with immigration. Why do we have immigration? “Because it’s got what America craves! It’s got people!” But why does the United States, the world’s third most populous country, need more people? “Because they’re in immigration! It’s got what America craves!”

The problem with a blanket advocacy of “immigration” is that, as with “ideology,” it is a category, not a creed. If someone proclaimed, “We need ideology!” we should ask, will any ideology do? Will liberalism, conservatism, libertarianism, Nazism, Marxism, or socialism all serve equally well? Likewise, we should ask about immigration: Would importing 10 million liberals, conservatives, libertarians, Nazis, Marxists, or socialists all serve the United States equally well? (Mind you, the majority of today’s new immigrants are socialist-minded.) Would importing 10 million Russian nationalists, Chinese nationalists, Iranian nationalists, or Mexican nationalists be as wise as having 10 million more American nationalists? Hey, who needs discernment?

No one, apparently, when in the grip of a certain simplistic dogma of our time, “immigrationism.” This is the belief that immigration is always good, always necessary, and always above reproach — at least in Western nations. Nobody ever seems to ask why Japan has no immigration.
