The thought strikes: this idea of Sailer’s, which I infer from the above comment refers to wide-open immigration enthusiasts being more interested in prospective future ‘shareholders’ (i.e. immigrants) rather than current ones, i.e. old-stock real Americans (and Canadians, up here), has even wider application:
Not only is this true of progs and the woke business class, but also the neo-con Republicans who betray the white Republican base in favour of hypothetical potential black and Hispanic voters (and thus, due to going after the latter desired new voter group, going along with progs / the woke business class in wanting wider immigration, ignoring that such clashes with the interests of the former desired new voter group), ignoring their loyal white voters. (Ditto with Canada’s political class, and the pro- wide-open immigration stance of our entire political establishment, across all Canada’s main parties, alas…)
Also, one sees a parallel in evangelicalism: always with the altar calls, and invitations to come to faith in sermons, thus milk for newcomers rather than meat for old believers; always trying to be seeker-sensitive, focused too much on creating converts while ignoring the needs of the loyal regular long-term members.
I guess America’s business culture impacts politics and faith, innit? (Both down there and up here in Canada, too, naturally, given our close cultural and business ties…)
