did you know that immigrants...Watch this thread
like, wow! would you believe that?
Was this post inspired by the highly intellectual "Should English people be polite to immigrants" thread by any chance?
Perhaps the reason why immigration has been handled so badly is because the immigrants themselves were not viewed as people by those in charge of immigration policies but rather as tax livestock and voting blocs for certain political parties looking to homogenise their influence?
Actually I've got a positive story to share about immigrants. If you followed my thread detailing my armed robbery you would know the context. Well a person that works with me upon hearing the story decided to give me his bike for nothing and this wasn't a cheap bike (very high quality). The guy is an immigrant from Syria and his English wouldn't be described as highly proficient but he still helped me more than anyone else did. Even if a lot of my views expressed on this forum, might seem more aligned with right-wing viewpoints I would never demonise immigrants, I am only against mass immigration upon seeing how it has been mishandled and the damages it can cause to communities, like the area I got robbed in; an erstwhile affluent area turned to a ghettoised crime cesspit within a few generations.
That social movement across the countries and cultures gives you something fascinating, worth even more than money and power: it gives you the CHOICE and the chances to live the meaningful life.
Get your pedal bike and venture outside of your council estate: one day you may find out that the world outside is huge and has got a lot of space for all of us.
