    Says a wise man, regarding immigration into Europe:

    "A limited number is OK. But the whole of Europe will eventually become Muslim country - impossible. Or African country, also impossible. Europe is for Europeans. They themselves, I think are better in their own land. Better to keep Europe for Europeans...

    Each country has its own culture, language, way of life, and it is better for people to live in their own country. That is my view."

    Is he right? And does this apply to the United States, as well?

    Nope, culture changes, languages change, ways of life change. People are not bound to the land. People should be free to move where they want and take their culture with them.

    Your statement.

    That's exactly what England did in India, for example.

    England did a lot in India. Moving there, and bringing their culture with them was not unethical or immoral.

    You're right. Let's just let 100,000,000 mostly uneducated people from shithole countries move to the US.

    What could possibly go wrong? :rolleyes:

    They should have thought about that before colonizing the rest of the world. Instead they made Muslims and Africans their subjects. Now those actions are coming home to roost, you could say.

    He is very definitely right. America is where Americans can be Americans, with American values and American traditions. If someone comes here, they are more than welcome to share in this culture, but it is an American culture. If they want to live in the culture they left, they should stay home.

    Freedom means freedom of movement. This isn't feudal Europe. People aren't bound to the land anymore. Socio-economic mobility comes in tandem with actual mobility.

    No, it doesn't.
    False equivalence.
    No, they've been going to the cities of their homeland for millennia now. That is how cities are made in the first place, duh.
    Not illegally crossing national boundaries it doesn't.

    Cities come and they go. Just because one generation loves a certain place doesn't mean the next generation has any responsibility to live there.

    National boundaries are a good thing. They preserve what people with a common culture have created and allows them to decide what "diversity" is good and what "diversity" is bad and to behave accordingly as they desire on the matter.

    National boundaries hinder freedom.
    You know what else can determine diversity is good and what is bad? The free market. Don't like language your neighbors are speaking, then move. Everything will eventually reach an equilibrium.
