I'm shocked that yet more refugees have drowned trying to escape the war in Syria. There's an image in the paper of a drowned 3 year old boy who was found on a Turkish beach. I have a daughter almost half that age. It's not often that I get emotional. In fact, I'm rather well known for being cold as ice. But this image brought me to tears. Tears which were soon replaced by rage when I started reading the comment sections on several sites. People applauding the fact that he and the others died. Because it meant less mouths to feed. The hatred against these refugees is mind blowing. I've never had a lot of faith in humanity but now there's little left. I'm ashamed of Europe, it's policies and a lot of the selfish monsters who populate it's continent.

Here's the link for those who care. But be warned.

The UK is so closed to migration it's unreal. It's toxic and I despise it.

However, while I don't condone the way Europe as a whole are handling the situation, more needs to be done to stabilise the regions people are coming from as a long term goal. Relocating entire countries isn't sustainable.

Happy, safe people don't want to leave their homes or countries.

Yeah...I've had exactly the same reaction than you. I think when we are parent we change our point of view with this kind of news in the way that, perhaps, we are more sensitive.

About the comments and all the things we can read / see I really hope that the silence majority of people doesn't think like that. Often the minority is the most noisy than the majority.

Europe cannot do much except helping these countries getting back on their feet, I agree on that!

you can imagine any system to prevent migration, that won't stop people trying, and the more effective the system is, the more dead bodies there are. all of that because we think these in a disuasive approach, but if someone has nothing to lose, he will try and die anyway

and @El Moroes, fortunately you always hear more the one drunken idiot rather than the hundreds of common good peoples.

Finally, @Sprony, the fact that this selfishness is in place is because Europe feels threatened. What is sad is that while Europe is a wonderful place to live in, with social advantages, fundamental rights etc, all of these people who feel threatened only care about their money, because they see in that their survival, and they end up acting like animals enjoying the death of others because that means they can still eat, excepting that animals aren't that cruel. Thus as long as the economy is the fundamental value, these ridiculous behavior will happen. In my opinion, you should have faith in the future intellectuals, who could bring another way of living, which wouldn't be as efficient, but would be more fair and respectful of others. (Maybe it's my youth talking, but I have faith in that)

I appreciate the serious discussion guys. I mean it.

For the record, @jackophant, I'm not claiming the problem is Europe. Of course, the source is the instability in the region, something that needs to be dealt with. Having ever body move here isn't a option. I'm also not blind to the financial repercussions this has. However, I'm mad about our policies and lack of effort in trying to save those people. They say it's too expensive but throwing billions down a bottomless well called Greece is no problem at all. Plus, what really bothers me is how the population responds. Nobody should be cheering on someone else his/her death. Especially children, who are our future. 

I suppose I'm more sensitive like @El Moroes said, it's certainly something I noticed after I became a father. Guess I'm not alone. Also, I think you put it very eloquently @laminutederire. I also applaud the positivity and faith. I'm not that old, but I've seen too much shit to share that sentiment.

What is government if not riddled with hypocrisy?

I think we can blame a sensationalist media as well. Newspapers in England typically associated with the whole idea that England as a country would flip on it's axis due to the sheer weight of the immigrants landing on our borders have now suddenly all this compassion. They spin whatever sells, and anti-immigration is flavour of the decade.

In a world where we could do so much to help all around us, we are increasingly looking inwards and closing ourselves off to the world. Sad times are ahead, let's hope we can ride them out before we let ISIS take over the world.

(especially since the money is mostly for greek banks)

I wasn't saying you were old, but the sole fact that you have a job since a few years gave you the opportunity to be disappointed, while I'm still in the educational bubble, which confronted me only to a certain type of people who are less likely to support such ridiculous statements, especially because some of them are foreigners from the middle east, and talking with them allow to have an inside image of the situation, even if I'm aware that, where they come from, they have high social statuses.

From what I remember reading, ISIS is quite pathetic* and armless** organisation.

*like they had major fuck ups

**compared to others

I would speculate that this is just another way to get approval to intervene in war scenarios caused behind the scenes by the same people that want to intervene in those areas.

I tried to avoid this topic so much but I can't handle this anymore.
I want to tell you my opinion on the problem that @Sprony wrote a post about it.

At the beginning I want to make sure that you guys don't get me wrong. Death of a child is a tragic thing. No matter whether you are a parent or not. I will not deny that there is a problem. People should help each other. The problem with politics and communities lays somewhere else. As you can see on most of the photograph 70%-80% of refugees are male between 20-38 y. You don't often see women's and children. I can tell you why. The whole trip to Europe from Syria is like hunger games. Only the strongest survive. Other thing is If they want to escape from war they have nearly 15 countries between Syria and Germany. They still want to go to Germany. This is because whole Europe is giving them help with no restrictions and questions. The CEO of polish foundation that is helping refugees said that they can't verify anyone so they are forced to give help to everyone. This makes great opportunities for peoples that want only money. The father of drowned boy wanted to go to Europe because he heard that they are giving free healthcare and he wanted new teeth. There are a lot of relations from reporter on borders that refugees are very aggressive. Recent one is from Italy. Migrants tried to overturn a bus full of tourists. Another one is from Hungary. Refugees where throwing out water and food that Hungary government gave them. They were also aggressive. I'm not questioning that there is no problem and we shouldn't help those ppl but You need to get this clear. There are more ppl trying to get money from our governments then ppl really trying to escape from war. You need to keep in mind that some countries in Europe like Poland can't afford even 1.500 refugees from their money. This is a huge problem. I don't want to talk something like "USA destabilized whole middle east area and they should take care of them now". It doesn't matter of us. And this is the main reason why this poor boy died. It's because greed and corruption. The ppl that are trying to escape the war for real dying on the way here to Europe. Please don't trust the media. Europe can't afford 1 million refugees in 2 years. Some specialists are saying that this is the beginning of the end of UE.

And once again this is my personal opinion. Please make sure you read all information's from few sources. And if you want to help 20 000 migrants because of one picture imagine how many children has died on the way here because there was a 24 years old man who wanted to go to Europe just to get more goods and not because of war.

Regards guys!
