It’s remarkable how little research is available comparing the success of different countries’ immigration policies.

Maybe we should start by asking, What kind of answer are you looking for? You might say, What an odd question. Surely, everyone fundamentally wants to be a good person and it would be odd to pursue the question further.

Yes. Absolutely. If you look at the history of photojournalism, Roger Fenton, who documented the Crimean war, was one of the first photographers to bring home pictures of casualties but, as with the pictures of the American Civil War where you see fields of dead bodies, the time lapse...
