Eh?

Shouting about how really awful the Lega Nord is contains this shocker:

It\’s not surprising that with a cultural background like this, worthy of the Ku Klux Klan, the government has just passed a new law making it a crime to enter or stay in Italy illegally.

No, really, that\’s very like the KKK isn\’t it? That something illegal (ie, something against the law, something which is a crime) should be made a crime.

God knows where civilisation would go is practices like this spread!

  1. Tim,
    see your point and it’s valid. The legislature validates it’s existence by passing new legislation.
    But with a little bit of luck, you’re missing the point. Reversion to city states is the first step on reversion to a meritocracy. End of mob rule. Too late for us, but maybe our kids….

  2. To be strictly accurate: something can be against the law without its being a crime. It is against the law to park on double yellow lines, and it is against the law to punch the traffic warden who books you for it. The latter is a crime; the former is not.

    Having said that, we are a long way up the garden path if even the notion of immigration enforcement is greeted with horror by the bien pensant.
