Immigration and Related Issues

Download PDF Version

This is a classic case of folks acting on the basis things are one way when they are really another. The immigration issues boils down billionaires importing customers, politicians importing constituents contrasted with everyone else importing neighbors.

Billionaires  are getting customers so for them it is all good. The parties in power are gaining the constituents they expect to bolster their power base. The general population is the only group getting more problems than benefits. The problems are enormous.

There are a number of false notions about the current round of human travel. The migration is not of the classic kind the mind is likely to perceive. The migration is being orchestrated from the top down. The popular conception is that each individual is a freedom seeker acting independently of the influence of others. Immigrants are presented as victims of hate and disdain. Certainly there is an element of that. What is never mentioned is that the hate and disdain is mutual. How is that? This is normal human behavior when two or more groups of people with contrasting beliefs and customs are compressed together by a force greater than they are.  The last myth I will mention is the idea that people in general are prone to seek freedom. Perhaps a few are. They are hard to find. Normally mankind seeks comfort and bargains freedom away in exchange. At this point neither host country citizens nor migrants are seeking freedom.

Neither the migrants or citizens of host countries understand the underlying dynamics of the situation. Both make no distinction between what government is for and what it actually does. Both groups believe they are special in they eyes of their government representatives. The only importance members of either group have in the political scene is as chattel to important people, who find uses for them.

If and until citizens of the various host countries snap themselves into reality and take control of their governments from the bottom up, issues like this have no solution. Despite claims to the contrary, mankind has never followed that path.  Even with the American Revolution, it was the elite of the colonies who wanted to separate from England.

The truth is a hard sell. Fantasy Free Economics gains readers one at a time. Major search engines simply do not list blogs which disagree with their political agenda. As long as folks share the link to this blog and others speaking out against the grain, the truth will at least trickle into the public consciousness.

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.
