Robert interviews Byron M. Roth. Topics include:
- The current debate over immigration policy, which is unlikely to produce a satisfying outcome since it takes place uninformed by the science of evolutionary psychology;
- The natural bias toward one’s own kind and a certain wariness of others, which makes harmony in multi-ethnic societies problematic;
- The history of immigration to the United States prior to World War II and how it contrasts with post-war immigration in the West;
- The undemocratic nature of the regime of mass immigration imposed by authorities on the citizens of Western Nations;
- Prior to the interview, Robert also discusses Pat Buchanan’s remarks on demographic change and how it will affect the upcoming elections.
