The Real Message

Responding to the anxieties arising from the eriosion of the nation-state by stoking xenophobia and hatred is wrong. But once you’ve pointed that out, you need to offer a response of your own. Because if you don’t, you are sending a message that strengthens the very position that you pretend to condemn. “Yes, it’s bad but it’s the only way.”
