I Hate the State, You Love the State ..._James Leroy Wilson-... But I'm the Racist. Whatever. In Reply to Concerns About My Column Last Week on Immigration...

1. I don't believe in nation-states, okay? That I believe, on a theoretical level, that states in which there is a majority that shares many of these commonalities - language, skin color, religion, history - will last longer than states in which there is no discernible "majority" population, is not an endorsement of "nation-states," let alone of the USA. Every State is a thugocracy, committed to violence and destruction. I hate the State, and if the State didn't exist, why should I care about immigration? It is only the Statists, those who believe in immigration restrictions, who are obliged to answer this inquiry, not anti-Statists.

People who think I'm "racist" for acknowledging at an analytical level that states with recognizable and stable majorities last longer than other States, must look inside their own souls. You believe in nation-states. I don't. You believe that "good" can be achieved through a monopoly of violent force called "government." I do not. I give an analytical explanation of the stability of majority populations, and I'm the racist. Puh-leeeaze. I'm the only one who believes in equality, that no one has the right to initiate force on another human being. Anyone who believes in the State believes in inequality. And you true believers in The State knows it: you value your own intellect more than you value the welfare of the masses. Your very own view of "morality" is initiating force against other people without their consent. That's the very definition of the bureaucrat and her politician ally. If there's racism within the Thugocracy, I'm innocent, since I'm not part of the Thugocracy.

2. So I don't want immigrants to vote. So what? Too many people vote already! Democracy is the epitome of hatred and envy. Sure, I don't want foreigners to come in and rob me of my hard-earned money through their votes. Guess what, I don't want native-born Americans to do so either! None of them have any right to what I earn, and I don't have the right to anything they earn, either. But foreigners, as a prerequisite to citizenship, are told that it is their right and duty to steal from the rest of us. They are indoctrinated with the same feelings of hate and envy, of Democracy, that are ingrained in native-born children through the government-propaganda public schools. To hate and to rob is part of their conception of the right to vote! Do I object that they have the right to vote? Of course not; I object to anyone having a right to vote that would diminish another person's right to exist and earn income from work.

3. The purpose of my article was that, most American citizens would embrace the "bad deal" of disenfranchisement and no economic rights, if they were given the opportunity. The fewer "rights" and "entitlements" the State gives you, the freer you actually are. I think the very fact that oftentimes most "registered" voters don't even bother is proof that we're all seeking a better way. People want to live their own lives without government, but the United States government is making it increasingly harder for even immigrants to attain this ideal.

If I implied anywhere that I want America to be a "majority-white" nation-state, I'm sorry for bad writing, to say the least. Since I don't want America to even be a nation-state, why should I care about its ethnic make-up? That's not for anti-Statists to explain, but rather people who actually believe in the Statist, Yankee jack-booted, clap-trap that the people need the "elites" to guide them to what is right. You Statists set the policy, not me. And so I won't defend it. It never occurred to me that acknowledging that some anti-foreign-aggression allies of mine are hypothetically correct on a domestic issue, makes me anti-immigrant and racist. But that's the way it goes when the mainstream media tends to be controlled by two and only two perspectives. It influences others as well, including those who I thought would know better.

Forget about red states and blue states. Wilson's unique take on political topics is refreshingly not politics as usual.
