Indeed in my recent "De-Americanizing America," I wrote that for well over the last half-century, the United States has arguably been the most remarkable — and certainly the most powerful and prosperous — country globally — a magnet for immigrants around the world, wishing to partake in the material plenty and political and intellectual liberty it can provide.
However, immigrants can only contribute beneficially to American society if they absorb and internalize its values and they themselves become absorbed and integrated into the overarching socio-cultural fabric of the host nation — otherwise they will, almost inevitably, become an onerous and disruptive element.But when immigrants arrive in unrestricted, unregulated masses, such integration and absorption are liable to be very difficult, indeed, virtually impossible.
Thus, the social values and mores to which they are liable to be exposed and in which they remain immersed, are those of their country of origin, which they left, rather than those of the country of destination, in which they reside.
As the presence of such immigrant inflows increase, the environment in which they live will inevitably begin to resemble that which they left.
Thus, for example, instead of a Mexican immigrant becoming Americanized, more and more of America will be transformed into Mexico.
Accordingly, the inevitable outcome of the sustained application of the emerging mode of governance adopted by the Biden administration will be to transform America into an unrecognizable remnant of its former self, increasingly reminiscent of realities in South and Central America.This will induce accelerating emigration, with increasing portions of the more mobile and successful population fleeing higher taxes, socio-cultural alienation, and economic decline.
Increasingly unable to compete in international markets, the U.S. will fall into steep decline, reeling ever closer to the status of a third-world nation — with a decaying nuclear arsenal — unable to keep up with more virile rivals.
Soon it will begin to resemble the lands the immigrants left behind far more than the land to which they flocked — and with that, jeopardizing the very Union which, for over two centuries, held it together so successfully.
