Quote: "The article goes so far as to suggest that the migrant crisis currently engulfing Europe is some sort of payback for European colonisation in the 18th and 19th Centuries, and predicts, with no sense of loss, that European culture will be overwhelmed."
Flirts with the idea of a possible emergence of a "global government". States that "the world’s most pressing political problems may indeed be international in nature, but the average citizen’s political identity remains stubbornly local."
Quote: "Europe is a wealthy, ageing continent whose population is stagnant. [...] One possible reaction for Europe is to accept that migration from the rest of the world is inevitable — and embrace it wholeheartedly. Europe’s debt-ridden economies need an injection of youth and dynamism. Who will staff their old-age homes and building sites if not immigrants from the rest of the world?"
