I have just read an article about Japan. They have a population of something like 125m. Out of that population, 2% are foreigners, most of them being Chinese or Korean. Very few Europeans live permanently in Japan which is a very wealthy country by any measurable standards.
How does Japan compare to Europe? We here in Europe believe that we can somehow miraculously assimilate people from very alien cultures, people who are from countries whose culture not only contradicts with that of our own but even seeks conflict with that of our own.
Are the Japanese being wiser than we are here in Europe? Difficult to say but the crux of the matter is that whenever there is a need for people fleeing their countries of birth, the preference should be given to countries which would be as close as possible to the countreis the people are fleeing from.
The Japanese don't want Europeans to live in their country, not sure about how many Europeans would want to live in Japan either.
I know that you can't send Somalis to Saudi-Arabia because Somalis are equally despised in Saudi-Arabia as they are in any European country they move in but my point is that some sort of cultural selectiveness should apply.
Or is this too politically incorrect?
