The Only Thing Worse Than Communism

Tobias Langdon at the Occidental Observer notes:

I’d call Grenfell Tower a good metaphor for the Western world as a whole. At vast expense and with conspicuous piety, we are being wrapped in the highly flammable cladding of racial and religious diversity. You can see the chaos of the Third World meeting the careful organization of the First World off the coast of Libya. Criminal gangs push vibrant non-White migrants a short distance out to sea in unseaworthy and dangerously overladen small boats. The vibrant migrants are then picked up by powerful, seaworthy European ships and carried hundreds of miles to Italy, where they begin their new lives as they intend to continue: being fed, clothed, housed and medically tended to at enormous expense by European Whites.

And yet there were some who actually argued with a straight face that this phenomenon was libertarian in nature, devoid of coercion and aggression (not to mention state participation) and worthy of endorsement.

It is self-evident to anyone with a shred of intellectual honesty that having open-borders – in which anyone can enter the country under any and all circumstances and without any restrictions whatsoever allowed by those already living there – is a policy more insidious, harmful, and suicidal – not to mention unlibertarian – for a nation than even communism.

Russia as a nation managed to survive 70 years of the Soviet’s wretched central planning and emerged from the Cold War without the need for major revolution. After their failed socialist experiment in the 1980s, New Zealand was able to introduce reforms peacefully.

Frankly, for all the evil that is the North Korean government, the country tomorrow could introduce free market enterprise and individual liberty and not require an ethnic conflict or partition to avoid bloodshed as the result of previous policies. It’s also likely the country will remain Korean in the next decade.

The same cannot be said on either matter for the West.

And no, I’m not saying North Korea is better than America. I’m arguing that in the long-term, North Korea’s economic policy is less destructive to its people than United States immigration and border policy was, is, and will be for the American people.

Unlike the North Koreans, we still have yet to experience the full impact and consequences of the last 50 years of government decisions. For all we know, it could prove equally as violent and deadly.
