England, like many developed countries, has too large a population. It also has a very high standard of living compared to most of the world.
Many people in the third world are desperate to get to England and escape the terrible conditions in their own countries. They want a job and a better life for themselves and their children. They risk their lives to get here.
We do not want them here because we have too many people, there is not the infrastructure or facilities and we are concerned that our culture is at risk.
We can put up obstacles to prevent immigration. We can legislate to keep them out. We can fight a xenophobic war against immigrants. We can become racist and fascist.
I have a better solution.
Why don’t the super-rich capitalists refrain from creating poverty in the third world, which they exploit for profit, and enable the whole world to stabilise, educate themselves, restrict their population, develop prosperity and not need to emigrate to survive?
If there wasn’t the huge differential of wealth across the globe there would not be a problem.
Capitalism creates poverty.
Until the selfish and greedy super-rich elite develop empathy and compassion, or there are international laws to restrict their predatory sociopathic tendencies, we will have poverty, war, conflict and misery.
In the midst of plenty most still go hungry…………… It cannot be right.
