Good suggestion...

Charlene was reading more of America Alone this morning, and said that Europe ought to bring in immigrants from Mexico! Sounds like a good idea. Bring in Latin American Christians with strong family values who want to work and get ahead. Better than immigrants from the Weird World, as she put it.

Better, yes. But, thinking more, I don't imagine it would help much. The new people would be corrupted and destroyed by welfare-statism and Euro-nihilism the same way the old people have been.

Immigration works here because America is not a place, it's an idea. One that anyone can assimilate to. And we have a culture that, despite unceasing attempts by leftists to corrupt it, still values hard work, achievement, and patriotism. And, despite the unceasing enmity and attacks of leftists, America is still mostly Christian, and retains a useful leavening of Judaism...
