Open borders is imperialism. The whole 'one world one people' thing is imperialism. It just has this weird soft SJW language
thank you both
I think too many wanted to come to the UK because we speak English.Not a good idea. Shame though.
Erm no.. We have the best welfare state in Europe. That's the only reason they wanna come here, free handouts! instead of fixing the countries where they come from. Most of them despise the English.
@Hepy82 Sure. It's a shame we couldn't have conducted ourselves with more moral authority in our foreign policy. Then we could have really really told those countries to sort themselves out and highlighted how barbaric they are!
Their not all from Syria and Iraq you know? We haven't exactly invaded the whole of Africa anytime soon...
@Levin depends what country you are talking about.Usually the ones who were under the french mandate tend to prefer to go to france.Also education and lifestyle is much cheaper than the UK.Also not to forget the similarities in the systems.In Lebanon, we have a lot of french institutions:French hospitals, schools, universities and so on...So a vast majority go there because they can adapt easily.Finally a lot of the countries that you consider screwed up, are that way because they were constantly exploited by external forces.I am not really a political analyst but from my experience and what I studied, powerful countries always tend to use other's for their own welfare. And then they are surprised why they're doing so bad now.
@Hepy82 you should look up what the dutch and the americans did to congo. it's quite brutal.

That was kind of a crude analogy but it's not so tenable for a country from my perspective to open up its borders in order to provide for those around the world. It's not feasible for one country to prioritize potentially the entire world's population. There have to be some priorities, just as we tend to need to prioritize our own loved ones above complete strangers.
Some immigration can be excellent. The US dominates the world in terms of Nobel prizes, Olympic gold medals, and a great deal of the technological advancements in large part because it invites the best and brightest from around the world. But those immigrants and their descendants contribute to the US. They give far more than they take in return. This trend will only remain as long as the US largely keeps the underlying principles that made it so successful as a nation intact. It'll start losing that edge if it invites people of a sort that want to turn it into the types of countries they left behind.
I don't care what country it is. Every nation should protect its borders.
Yeah well I wasn't implying that just the U. S. should protect its borders. I was implying the true motive behind the reason they want to.
Disagree. Plenty of animals are territorial and defend their binderies. Hence the ‘marking’ of a ‘territory’. Even insects are this way. Have you never seen what ants do when an opposing colony enters their territory or other creature? The attack and kill it. Borders/territory is not unique to humans. Not in the slightest.
@MannMitAntworten Correct, and I’m fine with INDIVIDUALS or VERY small groups doing so. But to create a gigantic machine that is organized government and all that comes with it, that just seems so out of bounds compared to what any of our fellow animals are doing. Insects get a little more leeway for numbers from me due to their tiny size and footprint that their societies create.
It’s common sense really, not one racially motivated aspect behind it.
Open borders never work. You are letting people in who have drastic different political views than your native citizens, culture, mannerisms etc. You can be letting in rapists, terrorists, murderers and bringing in a bunch of 3rd world primates into your land to ruin it.
Why'd someone dislike my comment? Its true.
@Ámayas_20 So being from Scotland, you support Brexit?
@Jack9949 Yes but immigration is a very tiny part of the reason why.
@Ámayas_20 Well it’s very sad to me that a majority of Scots want to secede from the UK over such an issue of disagreement. You have an 800 year history of being together as a people. I support a United Kingdom 🇬🇧 not a divided one!
@Ámayas_20 Also isn’t that what the Brexit is about? Controlling the movement of work migrants between countries?
300* I meant. You fought two world wars together and numerous others.
@Jack9949 If you think that's why us Scots want away from the rest of the UK you need to look at the political situation since the day after the indyref, there is a lot more to it, you really shouldn't support the uk the union abuses Scotland.Brexit is a very complex thing, for me it's about escaping an undemocratic government that hold way too much power.
@Ámayas_20 And what abuses exactly has England committed? I get that they dominate all political decisions for the entire country due to them having a majority of parliamentary representation.
@Jack9949 And you don't understand that that in itself is an abuse? Scotland has no say in who is in charge of the uk or decisions that come to a vote, neither do the other countries in the union, that is not democracy. England also takes 52 billion pounds from Scotland in taxes and gives only gives 37 back, as well as this Scotland has to pay a part of debt england has racked up out of greed Scotland generally opposed these decisions, Scottish men and women have died fighting in wars Scotland did not want to enter but england did so we lost lives and obviously there is a financial cost. I could keep going for ages, you really need to look into this before you go around saying you 'support a united kingdom not a divided one'
@Ámayas_20 And by the way I have a Scottish friend who is pro-union. You guys are just a bunch of salty cry babies in my opinion. Just get over yourselves. Try living in America during the 13 colonies. You ungrateful treasonous scoundrels have it made compared to what we went through.
@Ámayas_20 Also England IS a majority of the country’s people so its obvious why they control a majority of the country’s decision making.
@Jack9949 Lmfao you are a weird kid. If you think Scotland throughout history didn't face worse than the 13 colonises it just further shows how terrible your countries education system is, not that history if the issue here any way we're talking about the present day, unlike americans that's where the rest of the world live so it's what we concern our selves with I think you forget you didn't go through anything.'I have a friend' sure you do hun, even if we pretend this friend is real that doesn't change the facts I mean many people support their oppressing force because they haven't been truly exposed to the reality of the situation. England can do whatever it wants with itself but you can't call it a union and pretend the other countries are getting their fair share when all westminster does is ignore them and steal from them. You're 18 so I'm guessing you've never looked into any of this before but I'd shut your mouth before you speak about something you have no understanding of in that way.
@Ámayas_20 Well I’m sure Scotland would not have been able to defend itself in WW2 had it not been for England.
@Ámayas_20 Also of all the reasons you listed, none of them matter enough for secession to be justifiable. In life things don’t always go your way, just get over it. Be grateful you weren’t one of my ancestors in Ireland during the potato famine.
@Jack9949 Do you understand the world wars? First off the allied nations didn't fight individually against the axis forces so let's pretend Scotland was independent at the time if they have decided to fight, which would have actually been Scotlands choice to make not englands, in the war they would have fought with the allied nations it wouldn't have affected much at all. Scotland also suffered a huge amount of bombings during the war you should look into how much england helped out Scotland with repairing it's damages vs how much they took. This feels like you're grasping at straws I'll say it again, know what you're talking about before you do.
@Ámayas_20 I don’t know what I’m talking about. But it sure as hell is fun trolling people like yourself. Also I still don’t feel bad for you guys. My ancestors were literally dying at the hands of the English because they had their food stolen from them. At least you guys are afforded the right to exist and were never enslaved by the English like mine were in the 1600s.
@Jack9949 Lmao you americans really do go into history too much if you wanna talk history trust me Scotland has had it much worse but again we won't go into that. Dude, I'm not doing everything for you you get a couple more examples that's it not that you need them cause actually yes those reasons ARE enough to say fuck the union your opinion is pretty irrelevant. Trident - very opposed by Scotland yet chucked on our shoresStolen history - england still haven't returned many of Scotlands historical buildings that they previously claimed. Money - Have you ever tried to spent a Scottish banknote in england they'll make it a 10 minute show, again the theft of our money and resources without ever giving enough back COVID19- They literally stated PPE was to go to scotland LASTAgain I could go on, I'm only going to tell you one more time to not speak when you don't know shit or understand anything.
@Jack9949 Okay so you're not gonna let the history point go well then get ready you idiot.The English literally tried to breed the Scottish out of existenceScotlands native language was made illegal as were most of Scotlands traditions and customs, to this day we don't even have a fraction of them backThe disarming of the highlandsScottish people were often taken as slaves, Scottish slavery is a very hidden but huge thingScottish people were regularly massacredWe were taxed to an extent we couldn't afford the punishments that the people paid were quite horrificOur food, homes, animals, farms, children etc were stolen from us and taken to englandThere's literally so much more
@Ámayas_20 Right. But all those things you described also happened to Ireland and every other country practically the English colonized. So again, I don’t feel bad for you considering things are astronomically better in this current age.
@Ámayas_20 Also when you said “ COVID19- They literally stated PPE was to go to scotland LAST” Did you mean like LITERALLY dead last? Even after the numerous island territories?
@Jack9949 Dude if you think any other country faced what scotland did from england you're a real idiot. You need to educate yourself, no wonder no one considers 18 an adult in america.
Thought good people make good neighbors. Good people with good fences eh?
@Hermes-Paris that’s a very old saying but yes. It’s called boundaries. Both physically and personally
So you'll willing to erase your country's history, culture and phenotype, because that's what happens when you let foreigners in masses into your territory? Truly sad.
You think that will be he case? I think you are selfishLetting people go in is best way to change this shit we live in
You dang right I'm selfish. I want to perserve my country's phenotype, culture and history. My ancestors didn't strive and sweat and bleed in war to make it a better country so some foreigner can come and enjoy the fruits of their labor they left for their children to enjoy.And how about you open your doors to the homeless living in downtown and let them live in your living room? Or do you plan on being selfish and say no?
Yeah i help peopleI shareYou are racist
Typical of people like you. And yes, I am and will become a racist if it means I have to defend my country from invaders and massive immigration.Take a picture of my photo and share it around your community that I'm a racist, bigot etc. (I don't care). And you don't even know the actual definition of what a racist really is anyways.Lastly, I help people too, but I want you to let the homeless live in your house. Open your doors. Don't be selfish and let them live with you instead of them in the streets.
I wish you will be homeless
Yeah it's solidarity I help people and host them sometimes
Look, how much love you have in your heart. How sweet of you?
You wish me homelessness, you aren't as nice you want others to think...
Yeah that is only way to you to taste the bitterness and learn to shareNo one will be homeless for ever
Yeah, and it shows how vengeful you are that you wish me bad. Besides, homelessness isn't a human need. You can go live under a tent. That's good enough.
It's not bad to try hard time in lifeIt's good to know life better and not judging without knowing what you talking about People like you make wars for petrol
@Hispanic-Cool-Guy liberals 🙄
@WowwGirl: Yep. The majority of liberals are foolish when it comes to caring about their country.
Categorizing people another form of racism
They say yes to everything but guns🤷
You just called a Hispanic racist?He's really racist talking to his white friend right now huh?
@anon: A racist is someone who discriminates, mistreats and oppresses socially, economically and educationally someone of a different race or ethnicity. Learn what a racist is so you don't make yourself look badly uneducated.
Yeah i understandYou are a racist
Too bad. 🤷♂️
@Hispanic-Cool-Guy 🤷🤷🤷 I tried man
@WowwGirl: You it said it that liberals are stupid. Most of them prove it too.
I stand by my commentAnd yes they will In the south we call liberal femalesShameless TrumpetsBecause all the do is run around make noiseThey have no self respect
I know that is why I see you racistI vest time to think instead of writing a lot
How much experience you have in life to set yourself as a judge?
@Hispanic-Cool-Guy Why the fuck would you ask a question here if you don't want to read different answers and different perspectives?Is it too much to ask to have some respect for people with same opinion as you and people with different opinion?Or you really want to live in a country where absolutely everyone needs to think exactly like you. You know, a country where there is no freedom. Don't worry, nobody is going to want to go to your country
You move and change the shit they live in. Prime example is New Your City. Every one comes here for the mayors FREE FREE FREE now I have the migrants ask why I don't speak Spanish. They rape and kill and are let out of jail !
