I'm addressing this to Joe Average. We know why the people in positions of power do what they do.
The US has such a bizarre obsession with hating whitey, making sure blacks have welfare and AA, and waxing poetic about how Mexicans do so much work. Why is it so important to glamorize foreigners to the point of never being critical of the uber-1% from other places who are no different from your own billionaires? Poor white farmers fed the rich for years, but now they are lumped in with Donald Trump. They don't even get a positive mention (unless it's from Willie) because the family farm is gone and apparently only Mexicans do anything. Mexico is a product of colonization, too, so why the free pass and love parade?
Anything that gets in the way of wealthy people getting wealthier now has the added benefit of progressive retards backing it indirectly having bought into the "diversity" fiasco. Diversity of ethnicity can still have a cohesive social fabric, but it will never happen if you so actively encourage cosmetic division. Try playing on a sports team where each only passes to their own and see how much fun it is.
There is nothing wrong with wanting to keep your ship a tight one. There is nothing wrong with employing your own first, even if they are reluctant. There is nothing wrong with moderately lowering western living standards to improve quality of life. There is nothing wrong with taking care of the environment you have, prioritizing the education of your own people and making quality products that last, rather than cheap shit everyone can afford on a whim made in who knows where for the only purpose of making a few people richer.
If you focused on that which is within your own borders, you wouldn't have to exploit other countries or meddle in their affairs. You wouldn't have to fight over who is responsible for the drug wars because your "freedom" wouldn't be there in the first place. You wouldn't be able to so easily offload your shitty old printer toners to some far-away land out of sight and out of mind, giving their locals cancer. Why is it cool to make the world your slave? If you had to respect your own backyard a little more, you might also respect others' backyards more. If you can't make your own sandwich, you don't deserve to eat.
The problem is, no matter what the rules are someone will turn criminal to step up the ladder.
