Civil rights

Well, I do believe, that one of the main challenges of the European Union, and also the United States of America, is the discussion on migration.

At one hand, we have the idea, that we are all equal under the law, at the other end, there is the idea of race.

For a long time, unfortunately we have focused all on race and not on rights of the citizen.

The left have wanted to mix races, and the right have wanted to keep the races pure.

The issue is, that this is really a false dichotomy. There is no such thing as more races within the family of man. There is only one race, and that is man.

That is really the fact of the matter. So mixing races or keeping the races pure is not really a valid argument.

So, we need to hark to other principles to understand what is on the line.

Here I have pointed to the rights of the citizen and also the duty of the citizen to follow the rules.

Civil rights of both ways.

To have civil rights, one needs to understand those democratic ideas, and then actually also be faithful to them.

Also, there is a very important virtue of each citizen. A Democracy can only work, if the citizens accepts and support said Democracy.

So in effect, you have to RESPECT the secular laws, to be a citizen.

If we work with this principle we steer clear of all the problems with speaking about race. It is equally poisonous on each side, and should be avoided. Talking about civil rights is much more sound.

There are peoples, and some of them have states, but this is still not the same as race.

G-d bless the will to be clear about the rules of a Democracy, and may we find a true, positive path.
