Concerning the crisis of migration, I think it is a good idea to take a step back, and look at things with calm.

I have just finished the stoic work of the Roman Seneca about peace of mind. I think it has a number of principles we can use to tackle the crisis.

First of all, we need to take it calm. The current crisis is spinning out of control, and the fall of the European Union is imminent. If Schengen falls, the Union is doomed. It has been coming for many years, and we are reasonably prepared. At least in Northern Europe, and in Middle Europe, we have strengthened the democratic core of the nations, and in south it is a bit less destructive to loose the strong arm of the Union, perhaps even a relief.

Looking at the crisis specifically, we need to see it as it is. Instead of taking sides in the debate for and against the migration. We need to look at it calm, and tackle it with precision and virtue. We cannot choose sides, but do what is necessary, with the least amount of suffering to all sides.

Since most of the migrants are not refugees, we need to send them back to their home country. Simply and with as little fuss as possible. It is not illegal, there are no rules we break, and then we should just do it. This will require ressources allocated from the military, and they should deployed with grace and as little personal threat as possible.

Concerning the refugees, we need to make the nations I have discussed. This will be quite a bit harder, but can be possible, if I am at the helm. This is, however necessary, because it will need quite a bit of skill in handling Middle Easterners, something only I can do, because I am the only one who knows enough about the culture, and has the necessary experience.

If the UN is capable of taking care of the logistics, and the West is prepared to pay, we can do it. But we need to move fast and act fast. There is no time to lose, and it will take a while to set up.

G-d bless the will of the soft hearted person, using his skills to defuse quite a problem.
