Yes, I read Brussels Journal and Gates of Vienna regularly, among other blogs and news sources.
Yes, but I really was utterly clueless about Brimelow’s political stances outside of immigration matters.
And about Kevin MacDonald, enough has been said already :(
Furthermore, I find it hard assign the blame (as he does) for the passage of the 1965 Immigration Act to any single person in American politics: it seemed that a majority of American law makers wanted to see it passed, as a kind of “extension” of the Civil Rights Act to the world at large.
Strangely, the Eisenhower “Immigration proposal” (which would have flexibilised, but not abolished, the National Origins Quota system) does not seem to have been considered in earnest - neither in the media nor in Congress. I still sometimes think that it might have made a good compromise between “traditionalists” and “reformers”.
But maybe I’m not more of a conservative than President Eisenhower was :)
Dear Mr. Rmlew,
I also wanted to say a big thank you for your link to Amnation. What a marvellous source of information!
I had nearly forgotten about Lawrence Auster, whose excellent article on immigration post-1965 helped me a lot with my lecture back in the days, and I once even mailed Mr. Wall, discussing with him the very controversial issue of birthright citizenship in the USA and other Western Hemisphere nations.
Outside the Western Hemisphere, interestingly, only Pakistan, Central Africa, Lesotho, Equatorial Guinea, Niger and Gambia have birthright citizenship, although some other countries had it in former times, e.g. Britain, France, India and Ireland.
On the other hand, there are countries like Swaziland, Bhutan and Nepal, which have citizenship laws based upon the principle of “double ius sanguinis”
(this means, to be a citizen of these three countries, both your parents must have been citizens at the time of your birth). This is the other extreme, in terms of citizenship laws :-)
Mr. Wall appears to me as a wonderful and knowledgeable gentleman indeed. It is a pity that I lost sight of him since.
