    Ah yes, the Italians are going to save Europe! But first they have to save themselves.

    The “open borders” policy of Europe is like a big hole in a ship’s hull: Pouring water makes it to sink soon or later, and then ALL die.
    The real way to stop immigration is not by laws or internal European rule changes, but by developing these foreign countries gradually, keeping and educating their populations in order people feel happy to stay instead of migrate. Migration is a desperate solution, the consequence of an immense failure. Africa has been too often victim of a kind of (perhaps unwanted) exploitation (large single plant farming which crop $ value is decided in London or else markets) obviously successful for developed states but not those farming it.

    Europe is in even more trouble than I realized.
