Yet another weird SF fan


I'm a mathematician, a libertarian, and a science-fiction fan. Common sense? What's that?

A Few General Principles for Discussing Immigration

  1. There is no such thing as “unfair competition” in a capitalist system.
  2. Earlier immigration waves to the US didn't turn “here” into “there.” Why would it do so this time?
  3. If you find yourself saying “This time it's different.” you may be speaking nonsense.
  4. When X is outlawed, only outlaws will have X.
  5. Please don't say anything that sounds like “If you really believed in free speech, you'd let someone yell at you all night long while you try to sleep.”
  6. If an illegal alien starts his American residence by breaking the law, does that mean he has two felonies to go?
  7. Please recall there is a difference between the power of the lash and the power of the dollar.

Things change. During the Golden Door era America didn't have a third of a billion people.

Why would that matter? The US is nowhere near overpopulated.

California's running out of water. So is Arizona. So is Colorado. Not overpopulated?

Desalination is affordable in modern economies. That's even assuming it's needed. It looks like the alternative procedure of having environmentalists tarred and feathered might be even cheaper.
