“French President Macron: Europe Entering the Age of ‘Unprecedented’ Mass Migration”

 

This is just a fact, although there are few things Macron says with which I can agree.

But it is not just Europe. It is the world.

Population growths and declines, climate changes, wars, and other huge matters drive this.

Indeed, for “Western” countries with low birth rates – that’s all of them, a natural side-effect of relative prosperity – flows of migration are essential to avoid declining population size and all that entails for economies.

In the future, “Western” countries will have to accept migrant flows, or they will decline in size and keep declining.

Recent, much-publicized large migration in Europe has been due to one thing only, and that is America’s unconscionable wars in the Middle East. Millions driven from their homes in Iraq, Libya, Syria, and more.

Americans sit back and pooh-pooh Europe’s problem, but that reaction only adds to the general impression of America today as a brutal place that kills people abroad on a massive scale, and then refuses to even help with the horror they create for millions of desperate refugees.

Mrs. Merkel made the error of accepting too many refugees at once, and that naturally hurt her politically. But she really was, I believe, acting out of some appropriate compassion. She has supported, at least tacitly, America’s mass-killing Neocon Wars. She undoubtedly feels guilt over it, as everyone involved rightly should.

It would appear Americans are free of such decent feelings, even though it is their government and their tax dollars doing all the killing.
