In the first part of the film trilogy “The Godfather” you can see how the little Sicilian Vito Andolini arrives on Ellis Island and is accidentally registered there by the immigration officer in the name of his hometown Corleone.
The board showed the following (rounded) numbers of immigrants: Italy 2.5 million, Russia 1.9 million, Austria 750,000, Austria-Hungary 650,000, Germany 630,000, England 550,000, Ireland 520,000, Sweden 350,000, etc. t mentioned. Hundreds of thousands of refugees came to the United States from the 1930s onwards, during communism in the East, National Socialism in Germany, and fascism in Italy.
The reasons for running away were the same then as they are today: unemployment at home, political persecution, abandonment, running away from some pursuit, etc. At that time, unaccompanied children were placed in foster families. If adults did not have family and friends in America they had to work harder. There was no immigration into a liberal social system at that time.
Today you do not need a passport to cross European borders. The word “asylum” opens the door to Austria and Germany, no matter where you come from. Since we are all surrounded by safe countries, sending people back to the border would theoretically be planned, but not because of the ban on “pushbacks”. Supernatural court decisions and some politicians make this possible.
The differences among immigrants are particularly noticeable among students. At the top of the list of willingness to demonstrate are students with East Asian immigrant backgrounds. All the teachers who teach these students, but who are almost never heard from, can attest to this. When violent riots occur in so-called hotspot schools, “experts” quickly know where the problem lies. It’s the lack of welcoming culture, it’s “Islamophobia,” and it’s “white supremacy.” This silly phrase was invented in the orchid departments of American universities and appears here as “bad old white people”.
The Chinese, Indians, Vietnamese and Thais form a heterogeneous but quiet group in all European countries, and teachers say only positive things about them. You are determined and move forward with ambition. already ten years ago About half of German children and two thirds (!) of Vietnamese children managed to enroll in high school. In Germany their proportion is five times higher than that of Turkish students. The numbers are likely to be similar in Austria. Things are especially bleak for Muslim students from other countries when it comes to education.
A few years ago, two sociologists from the University of Chemnitz and the University of Hamburg investigated the question of how these huge differences could be explained. In one study he examined over seven hundred German, Vietnamese and Turkish families. To get meaningful results, scientists compared families with similar incomes. The result was surprising. Vietnamese parents do not raise their children any more strictly than anyone else. The often heard prejudice that “authoritarian leadership style equates to academic success” is therefore not true. There are apparently no so-called “tiger moms” among Asians living in Europe. The study authors found that Vietnamese parents have higher expectations for their children than German and Turkish parents. Your children will not be humiliated if something goes wrong at school. Instead, they are placed under mild creative pressure. The authors did not see differences in intelligence between the children. This topic is still taboo.
vietnamese family – The descendants of the “boat people” – have revived a word that has disappeared from our didactic vocabulary: hard work. Postmodern theories strongly emphasize that learning should, first of all, be entertaining. Individual efforts are ignored or mentioned only superficially. There are several proposals in this direction at the SPÖ party conference this weekend. The request is that public holidays falling on Sundays should be “made up” on Mondays and that we should work fewer hours per week with full salary compensation. The SPÖ wants to create a free paradise: six weeks of holidays for all, free kindergarten from age 1, free lunch for all children up to 14, comprehensive school up to 14 (possibly even more with free recreation with) etc. The SPÖ does not seem to know the difference between free and free.
My geography teacher in high school required us to find every country in the world on a world map and know their capital by heart. Even in history, we had to be able to name major eras and assign events to a specific time. I still benefit from the fact that our teachers demanded a lot from us. Literal knowledge is not yet education, but it is a part of it. Uneducated and untrained politicians cannot understand such things.
The SPO also wants to establish “legal escape routes” at a time when immigrant terrorists are creating fear and terror not only among Jews. Are the attacks on Charlie Hebdo (January 2015), the Bataclan Hall (November 2015), the Christmas market in Berlin (December 2016) and other Islamist mass murders already forgotten?
So-called legal migration routes are political explosive devices as entry routes for Islamists. In fact, we need regulated immigration of intelligent people who will re-import the values we have abandoned.
