Quote note (#365)

Immigration sense from Ben Sixsmith:

But what of proposed merits of open borders? A consistent failure of the Economist’s article is a reluctance to distinguish between different migrants. If one finds the study, it turns out that 54% of the men and women who expressed a desire to migrate came from Africa and the Middle East —with another 20% being from Central America. Yet the most successful immigrants, in terms of launching businesses and earning wealth, have been found to hail from Asia and Europe. A UCL study found that European immigrants to Britain contribute more to the economy than they take from it while the opposite is true for non European immigrants. It is senseless, then, to claim, as the author of The Economist article does, that immigrants are “more likely than the native-born to bring new ideas and start their own businesses”. Immigrants do not come from “Immigrantland”. Population differences related to entrepreneurial and earning potential are real, and significant, and difficult to bridge.

(Always discriminate more.)

Everywhere signs of a Great Ending:

Gramsci marched right through the institutions and clear off the cliff on the other side with the buildings tumbling after him. The established secular church of the Western left has fallen; it is now just another religion, like Christianity, Buddhism or Islam. Its special status as the high priesthood of the quasi-scientific Future is gone.

Now the media is broken, news can get out:

That’s why the story about Harvey Weinstein finally broke now. It’s because the media industry that once protected him has collapsed. The magazines that used to publish the stories Miramax optioned can’t afford to pay for the kind of reporting and storytelling that translates into screenplays. They’re broke because Facebook and Google have swallowed all the digital advertising money that was supposed to save the press as print advertising continued to tank.

The Audacious Epigone on American disunity:

This nation no longer makes sense. Inertia, economic convenience, and a large enough tax base to run a global empire are the only things holding this carcass of a country together. […] How the political dissolution will occur is anyone’s guess — probably along currently existing state boundaries, though that needn’t necessarily be the case. What seems clear, though, is that it’s time — past time — for secession.

ADDED: UK version.

Greg Johnson reviews George Hawley’s Making Sense of the Alt-Right. Among the notable observations:

Hawley correctly dismissed the claim that has been widely repeated by lazy journalists that the neo-reaction (NRx) movement [sic] is a major influence on the Alt Right.

This will be consensus understanding eventually.

This is the most pitiful, morally-deformed cretin I’ve encountered online recently:

Restore a civilization, and receive posthumous Baizuo ankle-biting. It helps to explain why the West is going under.

Anyone want to take a crack at answering this? (It gets more interesting — and perplexing — the more I think about it.)
