First-generation immigrants can never be fully integrated within their new country.

like they don't have the individual ability or desire or is it that their new country and its current set-up won't allow it?

I understood it as no matter how much they desire it and no matter the system or setup, it won't fully work. That's the stance the anti-immigration people here have, like it's not possible in principle because nationality matters or some shit.

advocating for free markets can, in some circumstances, be the left position

a test with 4 quadrants makes it seem like opposing private ownership in itself is Left, when it's just that specifically The West has private tyrannical institutions and freedom crushing inequality

There have absolutely been authoritarian leaders who had left ideas for economic systems.

I'm not sure it makes much sense to think of Stalin as Left even economically

regardless of the Marxist influence, you've just got another authoritarian

So, since Joey was joking, we’re all pretty similar except ninsp, yo soy el

You’d be surprised how many people on the left worship Stalin. Look up tankies. That said, he was undoubtedly one of the most evil leaders ever.

Yes tankies are morons. Everyone who’s not far right and doesn’t agree with them is a “liberal” in their minds.

I know that's not what they were probably going for, but I based my answer on conversations with real immigrants.

That particular question is probably trying to determine your opinion on immigrants rather than your belief of how your society will treat them. That said you can be in favor of limited immigration and not be xenophobic (like me). I’m not entirely sure what I believe in regarding immigration but I don’t support open borders which is a libertarian position (I used to support open borders but was convinced it’s unrealistic). I would like for everyone to be able to move to wherever they want (borders are man made after all) but it’s simply not feasible and can hurt workers. I definitely don’t support the inhumane way Trump treats immigrants.

I'd like to be for open borders. I should probably do more research before I definitively say I'm for limited immigration. If there is a way for us to overhaul the economic system to combat income inequality in such a manner that open borders would be feasible, I would be in favor of it.

56% of Americans agreed with the burning of the MPLS 3rd precinct station.

Joe Biden and Donald Trump have lower approval ratings.

My political affiliation lies somewhere with the 56%

https://openmarketsinstitute.org/exp...y-the-numbers/

10 years ago, 1% of firms controlled 80% of all market share in the USA. I don't have the most recent stats, but can only assume this share has increased.

Marx was right about the concentration and centralization of capital.

trade is already open

what isn't allowed is free movement of workers

thats what causes the inequality
