Philosopher Had Immigration Policy Right 800 Years Ago.

by Arthur Foxake

In a comment thread where argument raged between hand – wringing, breast – beating, do – gooder idiots who believe we should open our borders and admit all the “refugees and asylum seekers” who turn up fleeing from justice for the war crimes, murders, rapes, people trafficking, pimping, gun running and drug offences they committed in their homelands’ war zones, here’s a cautionary poem posted by ‘Anonymous’ but which I believe comes from the Roma culture.

She clutched him to her bosom, “You’re so beautiful,” she cried
“But if I hadn’t brought you in by now you might have died”
She stroked his pretty skin again and kissed and held him tight
Instead of saying thanks, the snake gave her a vicious bite
“Take me in, tender woman
Take me in, for heaven’s sake
Take me in, tender woman,” sighed the snake
“I saved you,” cried the woman
“And you’ve bitten me, but why?
You know your bite is poisonous and now I’m going to die”
“Oh shut up, silly woman,” said the reptile with a grin
“You knew damn well I was a snake before you took me in

Every nation must retain the right to disciminate, by country of origin, who it allows to cross its border and what limits are put on their activities and the duration of their stay., according to the great medieval religious and moral philosopher Saint Thomas Aquinas.

In a passage of his Summa Theologica that could have been written last year rather than 800 years ago Aquinas commented that the Jewish people of Old Testament era (by which we can assume people of the hellenic or Persian / Assyrian cultures,)  did not admit visitors from all nations equally, since those people whose native cultures were similar would be more quickly integrated than those from vastly different cultures.

Some races were not admitted at all into Israel due to their antipathy toward the Jewish nation and its people.

The Law “prescribed in respect of certain nations that had close relations with the Jews,” such as the Egyptians and the Idumeans, “that they should be admitted to the fellowship of the people after the third generation.”

Citizens of other nations “with whom their relations had been hostile,” such as the Ammonites and Moabites, “were never to be admitted to citizenship.”

“The Amalekites, who were yet more hostile to them, and had no fellowship of kindred with them, were to be held as foes in perpetuity,” Aquinas observed. We should remember that Aquinas was writing at a time when the hostility of Jews and Muslims to the people of Christian Italy was a major factor in wars.

Aquinas also distinguished among three types of immigrants in the Israel of the Old Testament. First were “the foreigners who passed through their land as travelers,” much like modern day visitors with a passport and visa.

Second were those who “came to dwell in their land as newcomers,” seemingly corresponding to resident aliens, living in the land according to its laws and traditions but not with the full benefits of citizenship.

A third case involved those foreigners who wished “to be admitted entirely to their fellowship and mode of worship.” Even here, dealing with those who wished to integrate fully into the life and worship of Israel required a certain order, Aquinas observed. “For they were not at once admitted to citizenship: just as it was law with some nations that no one was deemed a citizen except after two or three generations.”

“The reason for this was that if foreigners were allowed to meddle with the affairs of a nation as soon as they settled down in its midst,” Aquinas logically reasoned, “many dangers might occur, since the foreigners not yet having the common good firmly at heart might attempt something hurtful to the people.”

In other words, Aquinas taught that total integration of immigrants into the life, language, customs and culture (including worship, in this case) was necessary for full citizenship.

Those European nations where there are long established Muslim communities and a long tradition of hostility and conflict between the Christian communities and the self – segregating Muslims are proof that Muslims do not integrate. India is better proof, they’ve been there a thousand years and they still treat the Hindu majority with the contempt they reserve for all ‘infidels’.

There used to be a thing called COMMON SENSE. If you weigh all things by it you will never go far wrong. Unfortunately our leaders and our elite no longer possess this important character trait, they have replaced it with political correctness, an idiotic alternative dreamed up by the wankers who spend their lived in Universities creating ‘theories’ about how human societies work. Academics live a life divorced from reality, thus societies guided by their theories cannot function in a manner that is compatible with today’s world.
Our leaders, the ruling elites and their academic advisers  must go or change and implement what we the indigenous people want. A global nation is a pipe dream, it may work in children’s fiction but has no place in society.

With luck the elitist will dehydrate and die from the rivers of crocodile tears they constantly use to try to persuade us that all the lovely cheap, third world labour their want to import into the west will accept that our way is best if we learn to be ‘nice’.

Sorry folks, I hate to be the one to burst you bubble but ‘nice’ did not get us to the top of the feeding chain.

I find it ironic that were one of my American friends who believes in a God created universe to expound that view, all the ‘liberals’, ‘progressives’, ‘socialists’ and ‘all-join-hands-and-sing-kumbaya’ merchants would be screaming for their blood, and yet these people who set so much store by evolution understand so little about Darwin’s natural selection principle they think science and social engineering can harness and control it.
