Wouldn’t it be best if the migrants fixed their own countries rather than flee?

Why did 147
mil­lion indi­vid­u­als
express a desire
to immi­grate to the United States? The
vast major­ity wishes to flee to here because they are liv­ing in coun­tries with not
enough indi­vid­ual free­dom, not enough eco­nomic oppor­tu­nity, or have oppres­sive
gov­ern­ments. What is the root cause
behind the recent string of migrant car­a­vans leav­ing Cen­tral Amer­i­can nations, head­ing
for the United States? Because the
United States has such an abun­dance of all that is miss­ing in their home
coun­tries so many have braved extremely tor­tu­ous con­di­tions to come here. Bad
gov­ern­ments are the root cause of the world’s migra­tion crisis.

Those who do not migrate here sel­dom, or ever, see an
improve­ment in their con­di­tion. The lives of every indi­vid­ual liv­ing in a
nation where so many wish to flee would be improved if cit­i­zens fixed the
gov­ern­ment of their home nation. There
are many rea­sons why this sel­dom happens.

To reach a point where the peo­ple begin reform­ing their
gov­ern­ment, a cer­tain inter­nal pres­sure is needed amongst the peo­ple. The gov­ern­ments of many nations allow
dis­sat­is­fied cit­i­zens to flee in order to pre­vent this inter­nal pres­sure from
reach­ing a crit­i­cal point. Allow­ing easy
and unchecked ille­gal immi­gra­tion into the United States also pre­vents this crit­i­cal
point from being reached and the extremely pow­er­ful mag­net cre­ated by our
overly gen­er­ous wel­fare sys­tem also places a damp­en­ing field on the crit­i­cal
mass needed in other countries.

I am in no way advo­cat­ing armed rev­o­lu­tion by the peo­ple in
any nation. There is such lit­tle chance
of armed rev­o­lu­tion pro­duc­ing a sta­ble nation, with a just gov­ern­ment, that
pro­tects the rights of every indi­vid­ual.
Our rebel­lion against the British is the only rev­o­lu­tion that suc­ceeded
in pro­duc­ing those results. Most
gov­ern­ments do not allow armed cit­i­zens so that also greatly lessons the
chances for suc­cess. Gandhi and Mar­tin
Luther King Jr. proved that peace­ful civil dis­obe­di­ence can be far more
effec­tive than vio­lent revolution.

Edu­ca­tion is the most cru­cial tool when it comes to a
cit­i­zen led ref­or­ma­tion of an abu­sive, cor­rupt, or inef­fec­tive gov­ern­ment. Few in other nations are aware of the mir­a­cle
cre­ated by the found­ing fathers of this nation.
Thanks to the over­whelm­ing pro­gres­sive bias that exists in the
edu­ca­tional sys­tem of this nation, few mil­len­ni­als here are aware of this
mir­a­cle. An online sys­tem where those in
other nations can learn the truth about how our Con­sti­tu­tion, indi­vid­ual
rights, and free mar­ket econ­omy cre­ated the freest and most pros­per­ous nation
ever would be most help­ful to those in other nations.

Uncen­sored and anony­mous com­mu­ni­ca­tion is also essen­tial for
a cit­i­zen led ref­or­ma­tion of a gov­ern­ment.
Social media could be the per­fect medium for this, unfor­tu­nately, Face­book
and Twit­ter reg­u­larly cen­sor the exact type of lib­erty ori­ented mes­sage that
would most ben­e­fi­cial. They have also
shown an inter­est in part­ner­ing with abu­sive governments.

More than two decades of being the pri­mary des­ti­na­tion of
those seek­ing to flee abu­sive gov­ern­ments, cou­pled with open bor­ders, and our
overly gen­er­ous wel­fare sys­tem, has had neg­a­tive impacts on this nation. That will be the topic of a future
arti­cle. Cit­i­zens reform­ing their own
flawed gov­ern­ments, or flawed
gov­ern­ments reform­ing them­selves
, will pre­vent these neg­a­tive impacts from
affect­ing our coun­try while, improv­ing the lives of every­one liv­ing in other
countries.

Why did 147 million individuals  express a desire to immigrate to the United States?  The vast majority wishes to flee to here because they are living in countries with not enough individual freedom, not enough economic opportunity, or have oppressive governments.  What is the root cause behind the recent string of migrant caravans leaving Central American nations, heading for the United States?  Because the United States has such an abundance of all that is missing in their home countries so many have braved extremely tortuous conditions to come here. Bad governments are the root cause of the world’s migration crisis.

Those who do not migrate here seldom, or ever, see an improvement in their condition. The lives of every individual living in a nation where so many wish to flee would be improved if citizens fixed the government of their home nation.  There are many reasons why this seldom happens.

To reach a point where the people begin reforming their government, a certain internal pressure is needed amongst the people.  The governments of many nations allow dissatisfied citizens to flee in order to prevent this internal pressure from reaching a critical point.  Allowing easy and unchecked illegal immigration into the United States also prevents this critical point from being reached and the extremely powerful magnet created by our overly generous welfare system also places a dampening field on the critical mass needed in other countries.

I am in no way advocating armed revolution by the people in any nation.  There is such little chance of armed revolution producing a stable nation, with a just government, that protects the rights of every individual.  Our rebellion against the British is the only revolution that succeeded in producing those results.  Most governments do not allow armed citizens so that also greatly lessons the chances for success.  Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr. proved that peaceful civil disobedience can be far more effective than violent revolution.

Education is the most crucial tool when it comes to a citizen led reformation of an abusive, corrupt, or ineffective government.  Few in other nations are aware of the miracle created by the founding fathers of this nation.  Thanks to the overwhelming progressive bias that exists in the educational system of this nation, few millennials here are aware of this miracle.  An online system where those in other nations can learn the truth about how our Constitution, individual rights, and free market economy created the freest and most prosperous nation ever would be most helpful to those in other nations.

Uncensored and anonymous communication is also essential for a citizen led reformation of a government.  Social media could be the perfect medium for this, unfortunately, Facebook and Twitter regularly censor the exact type of liberty oriented message that would most beneficial.  They have also shown an interest in partnering with abusive governments.

More than two decades of being the primary destination of those seeking to flee abusive governments, coupled with open borders, and our overly generous welfare system, has had negative impacts on this nation.  That will be the topic of a future article.   Citizens reforming their own flawed governments, or flawed governments reforming themselves, will prevent these negative impacts from affecting our country while, improving the lives of everyone living in other countries.
