It also has/had the most christians in the region. Who don't get allowed for asylum in Europe and the US. How about that.

Christian refugees from Syria are pretty much the only ones my country took in.

Proof that Islam can't coexist with capitalism.

Douche here - I am simply offended by the sweeping assumption made by the op. As someone living in a capitalist country where I regularly see people die on the streets from hunger and/or lack of shelter. Homeless families living out of trolleys and begging for their next meal. And watching the people you care about and love leave with nothing in their pockets cause they cant find a way to live. Dead is dead, it does not matter if its a gun or a financial weapon being pointed at you.

Edit: also these people look Syrian - Syria is a capitalist country ......

It's no coincidence that the richest countries in the world are capitalists

I don't think lefties really have thought about it, and just shrug it off as easy as walking across the border. Setting yourself adrift at sea on an overloaded raft most people wouldn't even take down a river, in hopes you get carried 100ish miles to a place you never been, while bring no belongings and risking capture meaning imprisonment or even execution. Communism is fucked.

This reminds me of a quote by Stefan Molyneux

Capitalism isn't the end all be all, and capitalism doesn't guarantee a country will be a great success because other factors like corruption and bad social/political policies can wreak havoc. That being said, capitalism with a safety net is the best economic system by far, especially proven ever since Marx.

This is a great illustration for being against illegal immigration. Heck, At 1 million immigrants per year, and 0 going out (that # is skewed a little I know), this is a great reason to cut all immigration by 90%.

Overpopulation is going to be a problem for our grandchildren at this rate.
