In a recent discussion with some friends about the current state of affairs in America, and how technology plays an important role, I opined that technological innovations would continue and that what we saw in Blade Runner, Ridley Scott’s terrific sci-fi flick of 1982, with Nexus-6 replicants, would probably eventually happen. I was asked “Why?” I responded, “Because we’ll be able to do it, and not able to resist trying.” They wanted to see the movie again, and I offered to lend them my copy, but not before I watched it again after many years had passed.
Blade Runner is over 37-years old and begins with:
“LOS ANGELES, NOVEMBER 2019”
The disturbing future in the movie is based on Phillip K. Dick’s 1968 novel, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? The introduction to the lead character, Blade Runner Rick Deckard, takes place on the streets of Los Angeles, deluged in diversity of language and culture. Subsequent street scenes show crime, filth, et cetera.
Although it was science fiction, that portrayal of Los Angeles never left me.
The book was written three years after The Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 was passed. The movie was made four years before the Immigration Reform and Control Act, IRCA, of 1986, that resulted in an amnesty of over 3 million illegal aliens and a welcoming siren to tens of millions of people around the world who would begin planning their successful illegal entry into America.
The dystopian future has arrived in Los Angeles; the City of Angels no more.
The future is what the “Immigration Reform Movement” has always been about: how our immigration policies, including non-enforcement of our immigration laws, change our country and our culture, and what current and future generations will inherit. The next step in thinking is how this will negatively affect personal freedoms in America … and inevitably, the whole world.
Our efforts to limit, not end, legal immigration and to secure our borders and enforce our immigration laws have been with the goal to preserve America and its freedoms, which are all at risk if we allow our culture to be disassembled, which is one of the goals of mass immigration.
Look to the future of our country and repeat this phrase: No border, no nation – No law, no civilization. It’s just that simple.
You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life. [Winston Churchill.]
