Reader comment on item: Reflections on the Revolution in France*

"Capitalism will fall of its own volition; to be perfectly accurate, you will bury yourselves".
Those the words of Andrei Gromyko, where he supplements his leader's proclamation, "We will bury you".

As it turns out, capitalism outlasted communism, but that doesn't necessarily mean capitalism can continue unabated throughout eternity without some regulatory and yes socialistic checks. As we see the rising tide of corporate globalism and its
accompanying theme of unbridled greed, may yet prove to be the self-induced hemlock prophesised by Gromyko. The quest for cheap labor and increased profit margins is what prompted the influx of these North Africans into France. Well, they made their bed now they've got to sleep in it. Fortunately for the US, the majority of its immigrants come from Mexico and the rest of Latin America.

These souls seek only work and a piece of the American dream:
not the civilizational transformation sought by the misogynistic Islamist zealots filtering into Europe. Speaking of Mexico, there is a town on the border called "Matamoros", which translates into "Kill Moors". I'm sure its not a name that was ventured lightly, but one that was borne of a deep-seated enmity fostered by the cunning and ruthlessness of the object.
