Getting to Know the Neighbors

Lets suppose you have an immigrant Muslim family living on each side of you in your neighborhood. They may or may not like you. Chances are they would be polite but would limit their interactions with you. Chances are better they would pay you little mind but would hate the other Muslim family. Americans are ignorant about Islam.

The boundaries of the Islamic countries did not evolve naturally. Their borders were decided by the winners of western wars. All across the mid east groups of people are forced to live together and they hate one another. Sunnis,  Shi’ites have never gotten along. Kurds are hated by everyone in the vicinity. Any peace between the various peoples has occurred under the power of a brutal leader who has forced stability by the use of terror.

Living in peace with Muslims over here will be no easier than the lack of peace they have experienced in their own lands. When elites force people who dislike one another to live together, the results are never pleasant.

The American mind is fixated on the romanticized version of the immigrants who came here on their own initiatives prior to closing Ellis Island in 1943. The current round of immigration has been contrived for the benefits of the wealthiest Americans. The immigrants who arrive will soon figure out that the freedoms they have assumed are only myths. The ordinary Americans who champion the pro immigrant reasoning that has been handed down to them from the top will regret doing that. Communication with words takes little time. Experience take much more time but gives a much clearer picture.

When advice from the top says “Ignore statutes that are on the books because laws are meant to be applied selectively.” ; a problem is coming and that problem will be bigger than what will occur because of the new immigrants or the lack of them.

Various philosophies and lifestyles are not automatically compatible. They become compatible over time only. That is why it is bad to force mass immigration on ordinary people who neither have the wherewithal to deal with it or protect themselves if violence is what results.

About Fantasy Free Economics

James Quillian independent scholar,free market economist,and teacher of natural law. Who is James Quillian? Certainly I am nobody special, Just a tireless academic and deep thinker. Besides that, I have broken the code with respect to economics and political science. Credentials? Nothing you would be impressed with. I am not a household name. It is hard to become famous writing that virtually no one in the country is genuinely not in touch with reality. But, if I did not do that, there would be no point in my broking the broken the code. If you read the blog, it is easy to see that there are just a few charts, no math and no quantitative analysis. That is not by accident. Given what I know, those items are completely useless. I do turn out to be highly adept at applying natural law. Natural law has predominance over any principles the social science comes up. By virtue of understanding natural law, I can debunk, in just a few sentences , any theory that calls for intervention by a government. My taking the time to understand the ins and outs of Keynes General Theory is about like expecting a chemistry student to completely grasp all that the alchemists of the middle ages thought they understood in efforts to turn base metals into goal. Keynesian theory clearly calls for complete objectivity. Government can only make political decisions. Keynesian techniques call for economic decisions. So, why go any further with that? Fantasy Free Economics is in a sense a lot like technical analysis. Technical analysis began with the premise that it was impossible to gain enough information studying fundamentals to gain a trading advantage. Study the behavior of investors instead. Unlike technical analysis, I don't use technical charts. What I understand are the incentives of different people and entities active in the economics arena. For example, there is no such thing as an incentive to serve with life in the aggregate. In the aggregate, only self interest applies. It is routinely assumed otherwise. That is highly unappealing. But, I am sorry. That is the way it is. I can accept that because I am genuinely in touch with reality. Step one in using Fantasy Free Economics is for me to understand just how little I really know. A highly credentialed economist may know 100 times what I do based on the standard dogma. Compare the knowledge each of us has compared to all there is to know and we both look like we know nothing at all. There is always more than we don't know than what we do know. I am humble enough to present myself on that basis. Why? That is the way it is. I am not bad at math. I have taught math. What I understand is when to use it and when to rely on something else. Math is useless in natural law so I don't use it. While others look at numbers, I am busy understanding the forces in nature that makes their numbers what they are. That gives me a clear advantage.
