To: Paradox; rmlew

Gentlemen,
I definitely agree with you on the need for a spiritual re-awakening in the Western world, and, of course, for better role-models in entertainment and the media, just as Mr. rmlew has been proposing.

But for the financial part, I remember three proposals of an author named Brimelow, which he made in 1992 in a National Review article titled “Time to rethink immigration?”. He opined:

a) what about adjusting the federal income-tax code for inflation? In 1950, this provision exempted $ 7,800 in 1992 dollars, although by that time it had shrunken to no more than $ 2,100 in 1992 dollars.
b) the so-called “marriage penalty”, which burdened married couples with more tax, should be done away with (Note: this has been achieved in the last few years, IIRC).
c) do away with the public school cartel, in order to reduce the costs of giving childeren a good education.

Wouldn’t this help families with a good education and work ethic to have larger families, and thus rear more children, who would then in turn grow up to become good, law-abiding and productive American citizens?

This country would be better off if we followed many of Brimelow's proposals, at least those not related to foreign policy.
