Why Europe Owes The Migrants Nothing

One of the great “gotchas” of history is currently sprinting through our collective consciousness with regards to the migrant crisis in the European Union, and it goes something like this:

“The migrant crisis is payback for Western destabilization of Middle Eastern governments – if you don’t want these refugees, you shouldn’t have bombed their countries – Karma is a bitch, so suck it up!”

This is an emotionally compelling argument for many people – and here is where we need to exercise the greatest caution. Emotionally compelling arguments by their very definition need to be rigidly examined and resisted – to avoid intellectual bigotry, we must subject seductive arguments to the greatest tests.
