IL légal immigrant.

Friedman – Illegal Immigration – PT 1
‘Bad laws undermine morality in general.’ Quite a closing statement and it can be taken as a paradox to most of the content of this speech.
Illegal immigration, Mexicans crossing into the US to ‘do jobs that residents are not willing to do’, for less money than residents would take, without health care costs, without human rights considerations: this is good for the US. Good for its’ economy, good for the individual (companies or persons) exploiting the situation.
Good for the illegal immigrants? They have the opportunity of work, of an income; of slavery and destruction of their bodies and health? Because their birthright gives them no rights? They shit out in the postcode lottery.
Legal immigration, such as myself in Switzerland. It’s not good for the economy. (OK, a major accident later), Unable to work as yet and costing the country a relatively large amount in contrast with my contribution. Who can blame them for kicking me out?

But let us go back to the situation that ‘profits’ the country.
It is socially acceptable if companies and/or individuals profit from others efforts. In the same way that the workforce of our ‘educated’ world is organised following the industrial revolution. A few organise and the majority work. For a common goal? A greater good? In order to survive and make the best of a situation, do the best for themselves and their immediate families. Sure some manage to do more.


What if the described situation existed, where all immigration is legal. A free right to roam. Wherever you lay your hat you have right to ‘an equal share of the honey pot’.

Would some do a lot for their share whilst others do nothing? Maybe. Would society govern itself by finding and forcing best ‘can do, will do’ situations for all?


Our societal structure is relatively young. But 600 years later we are still ‘serving’ the same few. WE have not become a more collective society, we are further estranged and isolated from our families. WE are further encouraged to justify, anything and everything.


Our future, as individuals and collective groups, family, extended family, societies, cultures, human beings – is and always has been dependant on OUR interpretation of the situation. OUR acceptance or rejection of all that we are presented or confronted by.  And so, the rules change. Development requires this, the pace of development is in itself a question that takes this, already multi-faceted, topic to yet another level.

At what level are we involved? On what level do YOU or I feel involved?
When will we become WE, or WE become we?

About JJBollOX

This is an update. The slight humour aka sarcasm will be lost on anyone who hasn't read this before the update. I am, still a British male. Still living but not in Switzerland. I intend to remain, living and male. When I wrote before I had "spent the better part of two months negotiating the change in my self identity. Unemployed and sharing home with a now ex-girlfriend. I've moved. Moved on. Maybe a year has passed by. Have I moved in an upward direction? Is upward the only way to go if we are to expand, broaden and grow? Realistically, the most dramatic (not exactly decisive) direction I have taken in the time was down. Down, down and deeper than down. I fell off of a mountain. My life got complicated yet simple. This in itself is a fair summary of my personality. I have posted the first words of blogs to be written which I would like to turn into a book. 'A normal life.' Let's see how well and how fruitfully I can express my frustrations, pain, healing process and the constant changes that are life.

    Your facing such difficulties, and staying so cheerful, sort of… Good luck, my gosh. Good luck… (‘The Office of Population’ sounds so communist!!)

      Thank you for reading. Thank you even more for liking that which you read. Thank you for your own honest posts. I am still reading them, sporadically with all the other things that I am reading and responding to. Another posting about tangents… Thank you that most for actually commenting and entering into conversation; an ingredient both missing and so misused by us all that it worries me for the future of humankind. I’ll write more and may prompt some more goshes. Your posts paint a part of the picture of our society that is sadly lacking, failing to support itself. Your positivity in sharing it all is that which deserves credit and praise! Good Luck to you too. No matter how good anything is, luck is always a great friend to have nearby. As by tradition, ‘Lady Luck’, she is easier for me to converse with and more pleasing to the eye than some of her male counterparts like Freddy Fortitude or Charlie Courage ;-D)
