Tribalism is on the rise. Given this fact, does it make sense to admit into one's country ever more different tribes? A piety oft-intoned by leftists is that diversity is our strength. An Orwellianism, that, if tribal diversity is at issue. For that would amount to the absurdity that the more domestic strife, the stronger we become. It is plain, after all, that tribes do not like each other, and do not see themselves in the other. Tribal identification is other-exclusive.
I am against tribal identification. I realize, however, that I am sawing against the grain of the crooked timber of humanity. So the realist in me says that immigration policy must favor those who are assimilable to our values and principles and must exclude those who aren't.
Now isn't that the sanest thing you've heard all day?
It is, an sich, eminently sane, but not to the destructive and self-enstupidated.
