Prostitution Popular Among British Med Students

I’m no libertarian, but I do know government spending can easily become wasteful. Offer free tuition, and it will do some good while quite likely introducing abuse and a lengthening of the time required to complete an education.

A free market could perhaps produce sufficiently skilled computer programs and plumbers, for example.

However, medical school is expensive, and it is desired that the best quality citizens receive the most valuable training, such as medical training. A society that excludes medical training based on wealth rather than ability will be less likely to produce good doctors.

But I never dreamed that British females would resort to prostitution to pay their way! Here though is a report on just such a phenomenon:

An increasing portion of students in the United Kingdom looking for a way to pay for their tuition are turning to prostitution, according to a new paper by a British medical student.

The problem may be particularly acute among medical students, who generally go to school longer, accrue more debt and have less time for paid employment, according to the paper by Jodi Dixon, who is studying at the University of Birmingham.

That is just shocking. The thought of a rich, bald-headed investment banker paying an innocent 20-something for a sexual act is outrageous. My first instinct is to call for the death penalty!

I submit that while our societies are becoming increasingly nontraditional, increasingly diverse, increasingly corporate, and thus increasingly incapable of governing; perhaps there is a place in some societies for further government-subsidised education.

I know much of the added university expense in the US today comes from the funding of poor students. Basically, in the US, you’re either receiving aid or you’re paying for another’s aid. And our schools are filled with foreign students, while Americans are pushed aside. I have little knowledge of the British university system, however.

To continue on the previous article theme though, I say we stand up to the Social Justice Warrior bullies and uphold the interests of British citizens! If Britain cared for the British, France cared for the French, and America cared for Americans; we might actually reach something near to utopia. If it’s “racist” to care for one’s own, then dare to be racist! Someone must take a stand for what’s morally right. British belles should not be resorting to prostitution.

Rob Lowe Is One of the Good Guys

If you want to see just how fallen modern man is, express a politically incorrect thought, or worse, tweet one!

In response to the horrific Paris bombings, which would never have been possible without foreign mass colonisation, Rob Lowe tweeted, “Oh NOW France closes its borders.” Expect a groveling apology tomorrow.

As punishment, Lowe has been bullied and essentially dehumanised. Lowe is called an “atrocious human being”, “Lowe by name, low by nature”, “You are making the world worse”, etc. etc.

For the enlightened modern man, those who express thought crime are subhuman and deserving of verbal, economic, and perhaps even physical punishment. Forgiveness for such crimes is never given (unless the perpetrator is higher up the diversity scale: black lesbians are never held to account). Nevertheless, a humiliating apology is expected, to ensure no others dare repeat such mistake.

To the modern, only Social Justice Warriors are moral. Any who speak against the invasion of Europe couldn’t possibly love Europe, love his people, love a true sense of diversity of nations. No, no, such rebels are selfish, hating, and generally Eevil!

Well, as yet it is not illegal to post the following:

Those who say France should be for the French are the good guys! It is perfectly moral to reject mass invasion by foreign peoples, and there is no reason to believe a large global empire would be more benevolent than would a tiny society that minds its own business and its own people.

I doubt Rob Lowe holds even this decent opinion of mine though. Likely tomorrow he’ll explain how he dislikes Muslims for all the right reasons: They reject Social Justice Warrior values! And his only dream in life is to build a Social Justice Warrior utopia, preferably one that isn’t so icky white.

I ask though, would Koreans or Israelis resisting the colonisation and subjugation of their homelands be similarly vilified? Or perhaps standards are different when applied to Europeans?

I say, it is the Social Justice Warriors who hate. They hate real humanity, the humanity of nations, tribes, clans, families, and indeed faiths and states.

Who Needs JK Rowling? We have Tolkien and Lewis

The Harry Potter series has been overwhelmingly popular. Each new book sold millions of copies, more than does a new book by the great Pat Buchanan.

However, despite a complete lack of evidence in her books, Rowling is now taking the winning side of history by adding in politically popular ideas.

Most controversially, Rowling has declared Dumbledore homosexual, which for a parent raises fears of pedophilia. No, it is not noble to place one’s vulnerable offspring at the risk of such abuse in the spirit of a great social experiment.

And Rowling has said the school was more multicultural than is evident in her books. The appeal of Harry Potter is its Britishness and indeed culture. While the rest of the world becomes secular and monotonous, Harry Potter was filled with magic and particularities. I would similarly find a samurai fantasy book boring if it included an African Animalist and an Arab Muslim. Samurai are supposed to be Japanese, or at least Ainu.

I love the high fantasy genre, but I never got into Harry Potter beyond a brief reading. This continuing fiasco underscores for me how truly valuable good fantasy work can be. Really, we might have all the high fantasy we need as a people.

For younger teenagers, CS Lewis’s Narnia and Tolkien’s The Hobbit.
For older teenagers, Tolkien’s LotR & The Silmarillion
For young adults, CS Lewis’s Space Trilogy
For a mature audience, CS Lewis’s Till We Have Faces

With Rowling we get popular positioning, but with Tolkien we have wonderful essays like this one over at The Imaginative Conservative. Surfing the Internet brings up endless articles, even hobbit houses, returns to a peasant-like existence! The tales are written and in a sense, perhaps, thusly dead. But in a sense they very much live!

Apparently Tolkien and Lewis were both influenced by the great GK Chesterton. I think I’ll spend my leisure time reading the rest of what Imaginative Conservative has to offer rather than reading new fantasy works (it takes little time to read a Mike Tuggle story), but in conclusion I say: We don’t need Rowling.

Syrian Refugees as Economic Stimulus

Often the “Right” portrays Western decline as a crisis of altruism, “pathological altruism” is the favoured term. In a related theme, it highlights welfare benefits for attracting immigrants and creating demand for foreign workers to support an aging welfare state.

However, this same “Right” doesn’t want seen how foreign workers are desired as a source of cheap labour, thus profit, and a driver of economic growth and demand for assets such as land. This is to say, investors desire foreign workers. It is not simply a conspiracy of “socialists” that brings in immigrants. Immigrants could not flood our societies if truly unwanted.

Case in point, Forbes:

Among the refugees attempting to get in are the remnants of Syria’s middle class: doctors, engineers, and teachers fleeing Assad’s barrel bombs in Aleppo, or the reign of terror ushered in by the Islamic State. They bring vitality and opportunity to an aging European continent that badly needs it.

“It is also a resource—a human resource,” Moscovici said. “Our countries need migration … the economic impact should not just be looked at in a negative way as populists would have it.”

The short-term costs are manageable, while the long-term benefits are potentially substantial. Migrants are, generally, a boon to labor markets. Moreover, they pay out more to the state than they take in services, according to separate pieces of research by the OECD and the Centre for European Economic Research.

Increased diversity also undermines national divides, thus leading to a more united EU, which carries economic benefits of scale.

This by Forbes is just one of a number of economic articles that have been released in support of Syrian refugees. There have also been similar articles on immigration into the USA.

I personally blame the “Right” for misleading readers with ideology and general sophistry.

Update: If it wasn’t clear, I’m arguing against Syrian immigration but blaming selfishness and pathological greed for bringing them into Europe. Sure, pathological altruism and the welfare state deserve blame, but it is a mistake to give them exclusive blame.

Trump in Trouble?

Donald Trump recently made an ostensibly unpopular proposal that America’s illegal population should be deported, as was done under Eisenhower.

It made me think of a NumbersUSA solution point: “Enforce the laws already on the books”, and many illegals will return home voluntarily.

Couldn’t Trump win popular support by calling for the enforcement of laws already on the books? By enforcing the law, illegals would find employment difficult, thus having to return home. Employers would then need to *gasp* obey the law like the rest of us and hire legal workers. Market wages would be pressured higher.

Trump 2016: Bring Troops Home. Bring Jobs Home. Enforce Immigration Laws. End ZIRP.
