A graphic demonstration of why the "good" intentions of those who inflict "policy by guilt" on the American populace, can never overcome the rational objectivity of mathematics.

    Interesting and places a great perspective on the issue. I first started to knee-jerk against the implied altruism of helping them, but then thought better. Could it serve our self-interest to help them? In the long term, maybe. But can we, do we have the kind of resources necessary to repeat a Japan or Germany?

    Could those in India, Africa, Latin America, etc. make the necessary transitions? Or is it time, as many suggest, to lock our borders? I think the Objectivist in me says do business with them but let them swim or sink on their own abilities.

    Hello Bobhummel,
    Well, that is pretty clear isn't it? We should export our system of Capitalism and prosperity (as it once and best existed) instead of importing more people. It would be a better world if the productive people improved the lot of their own countrymen. It would also be of benefit if those who flee their tyrants stood their ground and had their own revolutionary war as we did.

      Agree O.A. That was also the minor theme of the movie America. We have the demonstrated ability to make everyone better when our truly unique American values of freedom and independence from government control are exported. Now we are looking to some of the countries we protected or liberated in the last century to help us out.
