Immigration, like any other form of trade, has been shown to benefit both countries involved as the receiving country has an influx of cheap labor and the home nation usually receives payments sent from the migrant to his family.  This powers the wealthier economy and helps the industrialization of the poorer country.

This is my very simple response to all those who have claimed that calling the ANC a terrorist group is racist or saying that their tactics of targeting civilians is holding non-whites to a different standard from whites.And the IRA is certainly not the only white terrorist group.And they represent two different forms of violent revolution.  The original IRA which fought the British army for freedom are not remembered as terrorists because they killed their oppressors.  The latter IRA killed innocent civilians.The ANC killed innocent civilians, targeted innocent civilians.  That makes them terrorists. That is the clear line between a freedom fighter like a slave killing his master and a terrorist like a slave killing a random person of the same ethnic or other grouping as his master.

The ANC killed innocent civilians, targeted innocent civilians.  That makes them terrorists. That is the clear line between a freedom fighter like a slave killing his master and a terrorist like a slave killing a random person of the same ethnic or other grouping as his master.

Nelson Mandela and his party the African National Congress were responsible for the end of the terrible and racist apartheid system in South Afirca.But he was no Ghandi or MLK.  Declaring that their tactics would not work in South Africa (with no justification of that claim) his terrorist group undertook the bombing of civilian targets in white neighborhoods and the lynch mobbing of any black person who dared oppose his violent takeover.
The communist bit is just the red cherry on top of a mass murderer.

Funny how no one criticizes the American Founders for failing to embrace non-violent resistance or engaging in tactics that would be called terrorist today and were called “dishonorable” at the time.
That the tyrannized owe death, not peace, to tyrants is a principle at least as old as the Roman Republic.  Indeed, killing tyrants was considered a virtue and a duty until Augustus.

Holzmantweed raises an EXCELLENT point.  Although I’d argue its false to say that no one criticizes the founders for their sometimes terrorist tactics,the point I made was (although emotionally charged with words like murderer) not necessarily normative.The purpose of the post is to call a spade a spade.  If we are going to judge him we should judge HIM and not some Hollywood version.The people have the right to violent revolution, I would certainly not argue that, it is an extension of the right to self defense each individual has.  Now where I decide to call this man a murderer is where his party used lynch mobs to kill dissenters and bombs that targeted civilians.Its like having a mugger come at you and there are two bystanders.  So you shoot the first bystander because he refuses to help you and he is the same race as the mugger, then you shoot the second bystander because he wouldn’t help you kill the first, and then you get around to shooting at the mugger.That is not self defense.  That is two counts of murder and one count of self defense.

Basic criteria is that it is something that would at least be incredibly difficult to argue with or an easily observed fact people like to deny.

Apple brings American capital to China to build factories and provide jobs for people who, underpaid by American standards, are wealthy by local criteria.  And wages are rising incredibly fast to the point that economists predict that a lot of manufacturing will be leaving Asia for the American south.
