What makes Europe’s disgraceful reaction to the current invasion distinctive is that it’s an explicit rejection of the basis of representative democracy. The governments of modern nation states owe their primary duty to their citizens, and in return the citizens accept the legitimacy of those governments. Germany, France, Sweden et al are declaring, more or less openly, that the interests of untold millions of “refugees” trump the interests of their own citizens. That nullifies the bargain of representative government – and is unlikely to end well.
