Victor Davis Hanson locates the cause of our immigration quagmire in the opportunistic coalition that stymies immigration reform and, even worse, stifles any honest discussion of the present crisis. Conservative corporations, contractors and agribusiness demand cheap wage labor from Mexico, whatever the social consequences. Meanwhile, “progressive” academics, journalists, government bureaucrats and La Raza advocates see illegal aliens as a vast new political constituency for those peddling the notion that victimhood, not citizenship, is the key to advancement. The troubles Hanson identifies may have reached critical mass in California, but they also affect Americans who inhabit “Mexizona,” “Mexichusetts” and other states of becoming. Hanson follows the fortunes of Hispanic friends he has known all his life—how they have succeeded in America and how they regard the immigration quandary. But if Mexifornia is an emotionally generous look at the ambition and vigor of people who have made California strong, it is also an indictment of the policies that got California into its present mess. In the end, Hanson is hopeful that our traditions of assimilation, integration and intermarriage may yet remedy a predicament that the politicians and ideologues have allowed to get out of hand.

''Massive illegal immigration from Mexico into California, ''Victor Davis Hanson writes, ''coupled with a loss of confidence in the old melting pot model of transforming newcomers into Americans, is changing the very nature of state. Yet we Californians have been inadequate in meeting this challenge, both failing to control our borders with Mexico and to integrate the new alien population into our mainstream. ''Noted for his military histories and especially his social commentary of post-9/11 American life, Hanson is a fifth-generation Californian who teaches college classics courses and runs a family farm. Mexifornia is part history, part political analysis, and part memoir. It is an intensely personal book about what has changed in the California over the last quarter century, and how the real losers in the chaos caused by hemorrhaging borders are the Mexican immigrants themselves. A large part of the problem, Hanson believes, comes from the opportunistic coalition that stymies immigration reform and, even worse, stifles an honest discussion of the growing problem. Corporations, contractors, and agribusiness demand cheap wage labor from Mexico, whatever the social consequences. Meanwhile, academics, journalists, government bureaucrats, and La Raza advocates envision illegal aliens as a vast new political constituency for those committed to the notion that victimhood, not citizenship, is the key to advancement. Mexifornia is an indictment of the policies that got California into its present mess. But this beautifully written book also reflects Hansons strong belief that our traditions of assimilation, integration, and intermarriage may yet remedy a problem that the politicians and ideologues have allowed to get out of hand.

This book identifies where modern Jeremiahs place the sources of national decline and their purposed solutions and its analysis also reveals the central problem faced by this form of writing: the need to balance condemnation of certain practices within the democratic polity with calls for repentance. For these writers and political actors, the tensions created by these demands prove impossible to resolve, as the modern jeremiad further divides an already divided nation.

Communicating In The Third Space

Communicating in the Third Space aims to clarify Homi K. Bhabha’s theory of the third space of enunciation by reconstructing its philosophical, sociological, geographical, and political meaning with attention to the special advantages and ambiguities that arise as it is applied in practical--as well as theoretical--contexts. The idea of "third space" conceives the encounter of two distinct and unequal social groups as taking place in a special third space of enunciation where culture is disseminated and displaced from the interacting groups, making way for the invention of a hybrid identity, whereby these two groups conceive themselves to partake in a common identity relating to shared space and common dialogue. The essays collected in Communicating in the Third Space--including a preface by Bhabha himself--brilliantly introduce readers to this exciting topic in Cultural and Post-Colonial theory and offers insightful elaboration and critique of the meaning and relevance of life in the "third space." With a preface by Homi K. Bhabha.

We're currently living in a fantasy world of smoke and mirrors where almost one-half of our population is receiving some level of unearned welfare, financial assistance and/or various other “entitlement” benefits. The number of beneficiaries has not only grown steadily over the generations, but has now reached a point where it has become a way of life...the norm. We've all heard about the “special interest” groups in Washington, well, guess what? Government is its own special interest group...the biggest special interest group of all. With no term limits members become so entrenched, by catering to “their” special interest groups, that their reelections are almost guaranteed each reelection cycle. Government is now only the stooge perpetuating Ponzi economics. Wars are being waged to support the scheme. It is now job creation and economic growth at all costs, when jobs and economic growth are the problems, not the solution. Ponzi credit has created too many jobs. And most of those jobs have nothing to do with individuals making a living or creating tangibles. This planet no longer has government. It has disablement. The global Ponzi credit system is the greatest crime against humanity ever perpetrated. It has squandered the planet's resources and institutionalized un-sustainability. It has created money flow, control and power that make their way into the hands of the undeserving. It has created a global frenzy for profit. Humanity had almost defeated all its predation, competition and disease, only to find itself competing and preyed upon by the worst competition imaginable...itself. It has institutionalized necessity for economic growth and population increase when the planet cannot sustain it. The game controllers are poised to profit from dwindling resources through commodity investment and war. The world's jobs are dependent on the continuation of Ponzi credit creation.
