Ice People and NAM countries and migration

This Gallup graph shows that the adult population of many NAM countries would collapse if all inhabitants who wanted to emigrate were able to.




















By the same token, many Ice People countries (and oil-rich places) would be swamped if every person who wanted to move could. Ice People need to wise up and use some of that iciness to keep out the folks who would sink the lifeboat.

If they're going to unfairly call us racists, let's occasionally live up to the hype.

It's funny, I was just thinking the other day that the best definition of a "third-world" country is one where a certain percentage want to emigrate. I wasn't sure where to put the cutoff, though. Somewhere around 30%, perhaps?

Maybe so, but if European people would give up our false modesty, we could make these third world shitholes much nicer places for their inhabitants.
