So far the only completely sensible take on the European refugee crisis is from Slavoj Žižek.

Have there ever been any countries that voluntarily (rather than involuntarily) destroyed themselves by allowing nearly-unrestricted immigration from those with incompatible values? I can’t think of any instance in history. But we’re about to watch it happen.

It’ll be interesting to watch it play out in Sweden, Denmmark, Norway and a few other Western European countries who do that to themselves.

When you invite a load of young men who hate and fear women and modernity into your country en masse, nothing good is going to come of that long-term. It just can’t.

Liberal fantasies of singing kumbaya by the fucking fire make that more certain, not less.
