Open borders: punish the people for the government’s sins « Jon Rappoport's Blog

"I used to wonder why God used a prop like the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil to inflict guilt on Adam & Eve, until I realized it could have been a steak or a plate of fries or a bagel. Anything. Making people feel guilty is a staple of religion and society in general. It works. And if you can transfer guilt from a real criminal to an innocent bystander, you've really got something going. It's a magic stage trick that can make a career. "- Jon Rappoport, The Underground

Let's cut to the chase, which is the moral argument. That's where all the juice and outrage are.

We're supposed to support unlimited immigration because we sinned, somewhere, somehow, at some time. Isn't that the underlying idea? Come on. Isn't that the subliminal moral imperative that's being shoved down our throats, along with a heavy dose of political correctness?

This is the political version of the mythical Fall from Grace, right?

We did bad things to the people coming across the border, so we have to pay. America is evil, and it's our fault. We need to be punished.

But hold on. Who is "we" and what exactly is "America"? And which evil are we talking about?

We're talking about this: the American government, along with mega-corporations, went into foreign lands, waged covert wars, and gobbled up as much cheap labor and as many resources as possible-while doing their best to help corrupt dictators keep their populations in wretched conditions under tight control. So specific bad actors in the US government and corporations were criminals.

How does unlimited immigration punish these specific criminals for their crimes?

It doesn't.

It punishes the American people. The strain on public services will be very heavy. The US economy is already in bad shape, and unlimited immigration will make things far worse.

Here is the crux, and it applies to immigration and other crises: the justice system is supposed to root out criminals and punish them. In this case, we're talking about those high-level US government officials and mega-corporate executives who, for a very long time, have been plundering the underdeveloped world. There is the guilt. There is the target. There is the crime, for which unlimited immigration is supposed to be payback. But when justice doesn't prevail, when the people who should be prosecuting crimes are allied with those committing the crimes, nothing happens. And then, voila, the generality appears. "All Americans are guilty of international plunder."
