    Socialism & Mass Migration: Prescription For Disaster

    Socialism & Mass Migration: Prescription For Disaster



    Once Socialism is adopted, it's only a matter of time until the mass migrations begin in search for greater freedom. No one is building a do-it-yourself boat to sail to one of the few Socialist countries that remain. People are however, always trying to escape, with Venezuela being the latest example. Ron Paul discusses on The Liberty Report.

    And you can always tell the socialist countries- both the Marxist and Fascist types. They're the ones that draw the hardest boundaries around their territory and make the biggest threats to beat, cage, or kill anyone who transgresses those boundaries. Massive welfare states can only be maintained by keeping everyone in and preventing anyone else form entering. The more diverse the population in terms of race, ethnicity, religion, culture, etc. the more impossible it becomes to maintain socialism in either of its forms.

    That evidence overwhelmingly shows that ethnic heterogeneity greatly reduces support for welfare state spending because voters are less willing to support welfare programs if they believe that a large percentage of the money is going to members of a different racial or ethnic group.

    I cite some of the relevant studies in a recent article in the International Affairs Forum on Immigration (pg. 43). The research shows that this effect holds true even in a strongly left-wing country like Sweden. This book by political scientists Donald Kinder and Cindy Kam presents the evidence for the United States (and to a lesser extent, several European countries). Historically, the greater ethnic diversity of the US is one of the main reasons why we have a smaller welfare state than most European nations; the evidence on that point is summarized in a well-known study by Edward Glaeser and Alberto Alesina. Because people are most likely to support welfare programs when the money goes to recipients who are “like us,” immigration actually undermines the welfare state rather than reinforces it. Even if the new immigrants themselves vote for expanded welfare state benefits (which is far from always a given), their political impact is likely to be offset by that of native-born citizens who are generally wealthier, more numerous, and more likely to vote and otherwise participate in politics.

    This feedback effect creates a difficult dilemma for liberals and leftists who support immigration but also want to expand the welfare state. Paul Krugman calls the welfare-immigration tradeoff an “agonizing issue” for liberal Democrats. But for libertarians and other supporters of economic liberty, immigration is a win-win game. It is both an important exercise of economic freedom in its own right, and has the secondary effect of constraining the welfare state.

    Socialists have to build boundary walls. For them there is no other way to maintain their social constructs for as long as possible. So pay attention. You can always tell where the socialists are- they're the ones demanding the government build the wall.

    You are misrepresenting. The government does it for them without asking.
