I There seems to be some basic issues that the Governments either A) doesn't understand, or B) doesn't care about. I don't know what's worst, but let's look at the facts here. - Refugees are in a vulnerable situation. A lot of them have to pay human traffickers to get to Europe, and a lot of them are given false hopes about Europe. Luckily the widespread use of Internet and smartphones even in poorer countries helps people find out the truth, but it's hard, especially for inexperienced users to know what's real and what's not. Stories vary from everything from; "In Sweden you'll get two blondes and a big apartment" to "It's heaven on earth, and money falls from the trees" When the refugees get here, they have invested a lot into this false dream, and as we can see on a lot of video clips, they are very disappointed when they find themselves very far from that dream. - We are spending a lot of money helping primarily fit young males. This of course goes on the behalf of children and women who are left behind. I even question if we are helping these young males. 80% doesn't even come from countries that are in war. A (too) large percentage end up on welfare here, and we have successfully disincentivized them from helping their own country and even themselves. - As we can see in Sweden, to finance this, money has to come from somewhere else. As you increase a population that work less, you have to pay for them in form of welfare. For some reason I cannot understand, Sweden choses to increase the standard of living for refugees at the expense of their own weak and needy groups (pensioners, sick and children) Pensioners experience worse living conditions, and the schools are getting worse. Money HAS to be taken from somewhere else in order to pay for this. Last year Sweden spent 73 billion swedish kroner (900 million dollars) on refugees. Almost 900$ for each tax payer per year. The budget is larger than the defence/military and police budget combined! This is of course not sustainable, unless you get every immigrant into the work force, which is highly unlikely when you look at the stats for 5 and even 10 year unemployment of immigrants. ![war-1447008_1280.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmSagoH7kjdABnp13BPxPnBu4YYPC4bRaqAcHFJRyLnnii/war-1447008_1280.jpg) ## Incentives and limitations One vital argument I believe is this. In these hot climates with huge populations a survival strategy is of course to export people. I will never blame people for doing this. It is important to point the finger at those who are in control, not individual humans fight for survival. Our governments are setting people up against each other. They are taking us into war with other human beings we have no beef with. Now all of a sudden we HAVE a beef with them. Our governments bombing and devestation of these areas have of course created a hatred towards us. And those who don't want to blow us up certainly feel the right to take our tax payer money. That's understandable. What everyone WOULD benefit from would be to enable these people. We would benefit from voluntary trade and even investing in their prosperity. Instead of bombing them into Democracy which of course never works, we must leave them alone and offer our long term help. I strongly believe that will incentivize them to build better societies. We must not accept their best men and and let the only people left behind be jihadists, women and children. Every move our Governments have done have led to more disaster. There are two factors we have to take into account. The welfare of our own citizens, and the welfare of all humans. I strongly believe our primary responsibility lies in the welfare of our own citizens. There are untold millions of people in the third world wanting to go to Europe. Where are the sustainable limits? I never see this being discussed. Can Europe take 50 million more people? 100? Double our population? I think everyone agrees that there are limits, of course unless you are a hardcore believer of redistribution of wealth - because then, redistribution of people is a very effective method to achieve "wealth equality" ## What's next? As far as I can tell, Europe has painted themselves into a corner. The narrative has been "refugees welcome", and at the same time reality speaks for itself. It is an impossible task. To all of a sudden turn around and stop it would play directly into the hands of the "racists". Let's hope it turns out for the best. The sad thing is, that without a bloated welfare system this would never be a topic. You would always be welcomed into a culture if you wanted to be in that culture. Because your incentive would always be to work for that cultures best interest. Cultures would be cultivated by those who had an interested in that culture. ## Let me know what your opinions are on this matter in the comments!
