People are anxious about both, the shooter was anxious about both. You admitted before that people were psychologically looking for something to blame, and weren’t being discerning as to what. They chose immigration. I didn’t say one wit about what “your” position on immigration was.
Hmm… alright, I’ll admit fault for this as I mentioned Yang before.
The fact is, I was not making a political appeal here, I was speaking socio-culturally. Again, the shooter moved to zero sum thinking because he was juxtaposing immigration with automation.
I’m saying we need more economic literacy to counteract that, as automation is not the threat people claim it is.
I’m equally saying that automation is one of the “new things” I alluded to before. An element that has changed perception of the issue from where it was 40 years earlier.
I care about the economic blight rural areas suffered. The virtually no economic growth from 2010 on is a big deal.
It’s why they’re ground zero for the opioid crisis, why they have double the suicide rate. I care about what’s driving that.
But blaming immigrants or migrants for this is a rushed assumption, and I’m not going go along with it. The evidence doesn’t match the claim.
Ok… maybe I didn’t know what you thought of this, are you saying we should raise the minimum wage?
That that’s going to help people?
Most attackers are young, just like this shooter, and just like most criminals in general. It’s attributed to how their brains are underdeveloped, and they aren’t checking impulses as well.
But also; why are you ruling out GED students? As I’m not. Continued adult learning is apart of how education is handled in Germany.
Germany has results we’re looking for, and results I thought mattered here.
