No Birkenhead drill here. Men first.

I noticed these UN numbers on the refugees in Europe the other day and concluded that while there is definitely going to be a real refugee component to the hundreds of thousands descending on Europe, and despite how the press is so far presenting the invasion, this is actually primarily a mass migration for economic opportunity. Doesn't make any of the individual tragedies less real, but this recognition should change the range of policies which ought to be considered in dealing with the numbers.

But mine was a pedestrian line of thought. It takes David Burge to set up the civilizational contrast.

No Birkenhead drill here. Each man look to his own interests first and the devil take the weak and dependent.
