Steve Sailer on ‘the ultimate minority right’
Steve Sailer writes about the new phase in political evolution: “The inalienable right of minorities to become the majority (while maintaining all the privileges of a modern minority)”…
As part of this drive for the final minority rights—becoming a majority—American elites now frequently switch the moral denominator from their responsibility to do what’s good for American citizens to doing what’s putatively good for all 7.3 billion earthlings.
While they find the ethical theory of open borders self-evident, they have no interest whatsoever in following out its logic to its conclusion: global democracy. Why not? Well, for one reason, in worldwide elections, foreigners would vote for their own kind, eliminating American elites’ American privilege.
So the future of America looks much like the present, only more so: It’ll be an increasingly lousy place to be an average American citizen, but an ever better place to be an American elite.
To the leadership caste’s surprise, however, American citizens have turned in large numbers to old-white-guy candidates like Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders. For all their differences, both give the impression that they are running for president of the United States, not president of Davos.
