Paleocons



Text  



Great piece by David Frum. Everyone will want to add something to this, and
here’s what I want to add. Historically, the role of extremist & fringe
movements in democracies has been to come up with a bagful of ideas, most of
which are crazy & some of which are positively poisonous, but one or two of
which get picked up by mainstream parties, have their rough patches polished
smooth, and get turned into actual policy. For all their sins and
obsessions, the paleos are right about one thing: the folly of uncontrolled
immigration. That is the one thing they will contribute to real politics.
Since no politician will ever thank them for it, I should like to do so in
advance.
