    The invisible hand of the migration market always knows best.

    To question this market dynamic for the social health of one's own nation is called National Socialism.

    Everybody was in favor (as shown by the market success of the model and the lack of complaints) of capitalist globalization when it just meant Indian children and Chinese women would be enslaved to produce cheaper pullovers, what has changed?

    Everyone loves it when they are winning. The West were for Capitalism and the rest aren't really important or otherwise aspire to it.

    Same with immigration. It's fine on our - or just kept as a nice theoretical "Champagne Leftist" view where of course we should help people - and we do by liking an occasional facebook page, giving Oxfam vouchers for christmas presents and sending off a few blankets. Having four immigrants living in one's summer house? Oh, of course it is a good idea... just not... now.

    Silly you that is what others should do, you know the type, live in a 99% white neighbourhood, kids go to a 99% white school. The whole mood changes if it gets too close

    Nah he's a sixteen year old, he just aged very fast because of all the hardships, throwing all women from the boat eventually gets to you no, I'd cry. Women and children first means something different to them but it can't be nice to watch

    At least some refugee camps in Lebanon do not appear to be in a particularly bad shape.. Comments from a family settled in Karasjok, located in Norway's northernmost mainland county, and who now wants to go back to Lebanon:

    The Ibrahim family emphasises that people in Karasjok - neighbours, the municipality and the teachers - are very nice. But the family only speaks Arabic and feels isolated.

    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    Familien Ibrahim understreker at folk i Karasjok: naboer, kommunen og lærerne er veldig bra. Men familien snakker kun arabisk og føler seg alene


    – The sun doesn't show up, we haven't seen the sun for several months, the Ibrahim parents say.

    They arrived as refugees and were flown in from Lebanon, but they had no idea where in Norway they were to be settled. They chose to come because of their seven children. To give them an education.

    The kids aren't doing very well here. They want to go back to their tent in Lebanon, where they can play outside in the sun the entire day with relatives and friends. Here it is cold and dark, a sad Mohammed Id Ibrahim adds as a closing remark.

    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    – Sola dukker ikke opp, vi har ikke sett sola på flere måneder, forteller ekteparet Ibrahim fortvilt.

    De kom som flyktninger - og ble fløyet inn fra Libanon, men de ante ikke hvor i Norge de skulle bosettes. Det var på grunn av de syv barna de valgte å komme. For å gi dem en utdanning.

    – Barna har det ikke bra her. De vil tilbake til teltet i Libanon, hvor de kan leke ute i sola hele dagen med slektninger og venner. Her er det kaldt og mørkt, avslutter en trist familiefar Mohammed Id Ibrahim.

    I wouldn't want to live in Karasjok, either. It's what you could meaningfully call the coldest town in Norway, as it holds the all-time Norwegian record for the lowest temperature at -51.4°C. The average temperature for a normal January is -17.1°C, which is about as cold the coldest outdoor temperature I've ever personally experienced, and I've spent a winter north of the polar circle.

    They'd also get all the mosquitos they could ask for, as far as I understand it.
