"So here's the good news: Having an immigrationproblem is a marker of being a successful, vibrant society. And if you have to have an immigration problem, ours is the one to have."[A Desirable Problem, Jonathan Last, March 23, 2006, in a Weekly Standard column picked up by CBS]
Not really. All the tendency of folks to migrate to the US indicates is that the opportunities/conditions in the US are better than elsewhere. In my opinion, this means that the problems facing the world are being held off more in the US than other places. This isn't indicative of a world that is working for the bulk of humanity-or a country that is working better than it once did.
It is truly sad that organizations like CBS are so devoid of critical thinking—or even logical analysis that they can't understand this.
