A Modest Proposal, 2015
On reading this bit
But in setting up non-nationals as parasites, as a burden, as usurpers of national resources, and so on, European governments and their loyal media are generating a dangerous political fantasy.
from Jacobin's piece on Europe's migrant crisis, my reaction was "well, yes, but they also treat their own nationals as 'parasites and a burden' if they happen to be on welfare," and then it hit me.
Make it a work-requirement for people on welfare or "benefits" to search-and-expel migrants, then deploy them in the manpower-intensive job of patrolling every square meter of the border. In US terms, the INS becomes the WPA of the neoliberal era. You're welcome.
