Need for modesty

in response to reader comment: Excellence v. Superiority & the Need for Neo-Colonialsm in Africa and Muslim Asia

Dave, are you seriously suggesting that we take our proven incompetence at home and apply it abroad? We cannot deal with a minority immigrant population at home yet you imagine we would therefore succeed with a majority population of millions in another country.

In terms of scale Denmark sorting out its immigration is somewhere between solving the developing world's problems and cleaning up Brussel-Molenbeek.

Your "exiled Iranian dissidents" tactic makes me recall some historical lessons. Say when Lenin was put on a train to save Russia and we would all live happily ever after. Wasn't Khomeini parachuted into Iran from France?

I see some need for modesty rather than Neo-colonialism. I modestly prefer the rule of law over any so called immigration-policy. The article itself picks an even more modest word: sanity.
