Timothy Taylor on the demographic and economic factors behind large-scale migration à la Mexico->US. Must read if you want a glimpse of Europe in the next 5 decades.
The Guardian's Long Read: "Europe’s new far right is poised to transform the continent’s political landscape. ... And when that happens, groups that would never have contemplated voting for a far-right party 10 years ago – the young, gay people, Jews, feminists – may join the working-class voters who have already abandoned parties of the left to become the new backbone of the populist right. ... Fortuyn proved that the winning argument for the European far right was not a US-style appeal to conservative religious values, but rather to claim it was “defending secular, progressive culture from the threat of immigration”."
