Thoughts in the aftermath of the Binghamton mass murder
As nations become more diverse through never-ending mass immigration, governments have the excuse to pass more and more laws and restrictions (on speech, guns, discrimination, multilingualism) to try and maintain order and control over such divergent populations.

I don’t mean to over-react to the shooting in the New York “immigration center” (and such centers are usually ACLU centers to sign up immigrants for social programs and finagle the system to turn illegal immigrants into legal ones), but I like to consider culture when I think about events.
As late as about 1970, this country was close to 90 percent white, with only about one in twenty people being an immigrant. Today, white Americans make up about 65 percent and the ratio of immigrants to native born citizens is about one in nine and increasing.
Immigrants from far different cultures are sometimes lost and depressed and homesick for their own countries and relatives there. If recently arrived, they often feel they have no real connection to our country and culture.
This won’t change. We are headed toward world government with weak or no countries; with everyone in the world living anywhere and everywhere and omnipresent Big Governments. Like the movies Blade Runner, Logan’s Run, Soylent Green. I fear those futures are likely to come true.
