Syrian “refugees” invasion


Syrian “refugees invasion actualizes problems we addressed in our book.
First and foremost it is an issue of corruption of incentives by welfare state. Politicians encouraged to “import” voters, bureaucrats to “import” new clients, supportive to their claim for more generous budget. These very incentives, powered European’s elite lack of vision and responsibility, inspired by taxpayers’ paid microphone of Public Media. These Public Media are left biased, they distort coverage of the events, they abuse dissenting opinions an join unholy alliance with politicians   (the sort of politician which is formally defined as “leftist”) and civilian bureaucrats to open the gates to impressive deterioration of social and political environment in the old EU countries.
Finally, welfare programs create adverse selection incentives machinery, attracting worst people instead of the best, poor educated and intolerant instead of well educated and ready to accept western values and identity of the country of their adoption. No any doubts,  huge majority of “refugees” will prefer lasting welfare to hard work and social adaptation in the European countries.
