I know the amnesty was nuanced, but take Reagan’s (and Thatcher in the UK) attitude towards free trade and capital investment neoliberalism. Once you totally liberalize your capital markets to outside investors and asset strippers, you get pile driven into the ground; then the political influence of these overseas creditors (Saudi Princes, etc…) begin to chip away at your border security and immigration policy. They begin to own your politicians, your media, (this is besides the amazing control Jewish capitalists have in Wash.D.C., 99% of whom support neoliberal trade). This is where the real problem is, just as you intimate.
Here’s the net foreign assets of the USA (Death of Mercantilism and birth of neoliberal world order) versus the trade deficits for instance :
NOTE: This graph has a typo. Second reference to “largest foreign creditor” should say “largest foreign debtor”.
Trade Deficits and Net Foreign Assets: One drives the other. Reagan is the man here. Reagan and Greenspan are a turning point in this process. If the USA wasn’t already sick after the implementation of the Federal Reserve and the creeping welfare-warfare state, this was where it actually flat-lined. I’m going to be writing an article about this very soon because people are living in the afterglow of neoliberalism as if the ‘prosperity’ caused by this national credit card addiction was the result of good ‘conservative’ management on the part of Republicans. They’re just as bad as the democrats. It’s just a one-two punch, and you’re the bag (much of this applies to Australia which is just a third wheel in the Chimerica Trade. We have a $20bill surplus with China and a $20bill deficit with the USA … it’s a classic triangular trade, thus we are also trapped in the neoliberal hurricane).
Reagan pointed at Harley Davidson and said “Look I’ll save the great American Brand” by having a kabuki theater ‘trade war’ with the Japanese that only effected Sports Bike imports (Harley didn’t make sports bikes). Distraction! And he did with his right hand, why? So with his left hand he could pass NAFTA, which was a backdoor for everyone including the Chinese. Along with NAFTA came the immigration influences with South and Central American kleptocrats like Carlos Slim, who started embedding their civil action hooks into US interior affairs, foreign policy, etc…
There is a connection between economic liberals - in regards to trade policy, not domestic free trade - whether they claim to be ‘right wing’ or ‘left wing’, and immigration policy. Nowhere is this clearer than in the EU where people and their skills are simply seen as economic units no different to widgets. This is the same direction the US has been dragged. It’s because of GATT, WTO, NAFTA, etc…
This crony-capitalism you speak of was epitomized by Reagan. Don’t get me started on Carter and Nixon. Reagan put Greenspan in charge of the Fed and the man was an Ayn Rand worshiper. Since then all of the administrations whether left or right have been neoliberals (just as Tony Blair in the UK sells himself as a Fabian Socialist. HA!). They all serve crony-capitalists, and they are all offshoring the profits and shipping jobs overseas. This is a massive problem in Australia and Canada also.
Neoliberals don’t just love free cheap labor (gardeners, nannies, servants), they also know they need to dispossess middle-class working whites. It is all about that core demographic which represents the founding principles of our nations. This is what they need to destroy. This is why all the mainline Republicans are all giving lip service to DACA and being ‘fair’. They’re all kleptocrats. Even Trump will eventually offer an amnesty. He’s already started back peddling in regards to DACA, regardless of his personal wishes.
If the core white demographic falls, the nation falls and the rest will be history, your patrimony and remaining wealth will just be voted away by the majority who see themselves as non-white. This is a really sensitive issue. I completely understand that. I’m just not going to stop looking for the answers - for the why? cui bono? - and they’ve become more obvious to me after I delved deep into the data. At the end of the day, it all comes down to two things :
1) in-group preferences and associated biological and cultural differences.
2) game theory (analysis of inevitable zero-sum games).
…the rest is just lipstick on the pig, but if I give too much space for good intentions, I’ll just be paving a road to hell. I’ll put logic above emotions here, for the sake of true objectivity.
There is an undoubtedly big difference between sub-Saharan African races and Eurasians, primarily it’s literally to do with brain volume, it’s biological, and it seems to be a problem for other non-whites too. This means that biologically - when living among Eurasians - these in-groups will always gravitate towards the side of the political spectrum which pushes demagogues (the data clearly shows this).
They know they are not able to compete for the leading positions in society under a pure meritocracy, so they vote where their NEEDS are. They NEED to find another way to compete, so the only other way is to take over the government and get the government to force redistribution and white-guilt policy. Rich white/Jewish kleptocrats and demagogues like Bernie Sanders, the Clinton’s, and take your pick on the ‘right’, are ever so happy to oblige as long as it is within the Overton window at any particular time.
I wish it were different, I’m aware there are exceptions to the rule, but the rule is the rule.
I’m also a very empathetic person, but I will no longer avoid the data or the knowledge that brought me to these conclusions. It’s like seeing daylight for the first time after being trapped underground for a prolonged period. It hurts the eyes at first, but slowly I came to realize the truth is the truth. As Jesus Christ said, “You shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free”.
