      And why would you think letting everyone in would destroy anything? Let's consider a fact here: as an EU citizen, be it greece, portugal, spain, poland, czech or whatever country, you are free to go in any other EU country. Permanently. No questions asked. Why is it that we don't see millions of immigrants of these countries here? Some of those countries are on the edge of bankruptcy. There is no denying that the life standard in germany is way higher than in our neighbouring country poland. Why is it that we don't have millions of polish people here, even if they are free to come and stay here at any time? It's because they aren't willing to give up their former life, even if it might result in some improvement.
      The point is: Refugees aren't here to get a better life. They are here to survive a war. A war that we (as industry nations) are responsible for. We make billions of dollars in weapon exports to exactly those countries that demand shelter. Most of them are likely to go back after the war has ended. If not, they started families here. And then why would we force them to go back?

      The first world countries have a responsibility here. The responsibility to apply the rules they preach to others to themselves aswell.
      You know what my biggest gripe with the refugee problem is? That the UK, a developed industry nation bailed out of this responsibility. To me, the UK is the epitome of the problem the european union is facing. Instead of embracing a united europe, they seclude themselves from the rest and leave the burden to others. To me, the UK are nothing but uncivilized cowards. I hope denmark won't go the same route. I hope germany won't go the same route. We are wealthy. We can afford taking in a few thousand refugees.
      Syria has only 20 million inhabitants. That's less than one quarter of germany alone. From those 20 million inhabitants, only 4 million actually emigrated from the country up until today.
      These 4 millions spread out over the entire european union and the middle east. How much do you think actually make their way to the western european nations? How much do you think will stay in the neighbouring countries?
      If anyone has the right to complain about refugees, it's those countries. Not us. We fucking buy new phones every two years. We can afford feeding a few refugees.

      So you basicly brought an example of good integration and bad intengration yourself. There's nothing to add from my side to this except: "how can we tell one from the other beforehand?"
      The answer is simple: we can't. And that's why we should give everyone a fair chance. What do we want to do? Punish a majority of 75% law-abiding immigrants for the deeds of a 25% minority? And not that this is in the worst demographic. The average immigrant demographic is more like 85% to 15%.
      We can't just cast "detect evil" and sort out those that arrive if they glow red.
      Also, I'd say that almost everyone coming here is willing to integrate. If not, they wouldn't even take the risk of getting here. Mind you, it's not just grabbing your car and starting your drive. You have to cross borders. Many borders. And you will have to answer questions. Many questions. And you leave almost everyone you know and your past-life behind for an unknown future.

      Laws apply to everyone, not just those we find useful. In case of the child rape victim, why should we apply different measure depending on where the perpetrator originates from? Why should an immigrant be deported, while a white male raping a child would get a prison sentence? Aren't they both equally guilty of the same crime?

      The point is: we can't spreach freedom and democracy after the rolemodel of the western world and then not consider men as created equal.


      I agree that the punishment for murder or rape might be too lax. But then again, I was never in prison. I don't know what it feels like to be in prison for over a decade.
      You might say that the loss of a childhood or a life might be something that can not be weighted up with anything. But if we apply eye-for-an-eye ruling, we would ultimately end up not being better than the perpetrator. Redeeming yourself is hard. Forgiving is harder. Forgiveness is not something that is restricted to a religious man.
      Call me an idealist, but a life-long prison sentence or an execution will not bring your lost ones back, nor will it make the world a better place.

      And integration is not something that you can switch on or off by just having a law or two. It begins in the minds of people.
      A friend of mine, who has the same educational level as I do (We actually graduated from university together) got almost all of her job applications denied (a turkish woman), whereas I (a white male) got almost all of them accepted. Needless to say, we applied to the same job at two occasions. I got one offered; she didn't.

      And what I really wonder is: why is that? She is an immigrant in the second generation; she speaks the language just as good as I do. She had the same qualifications I had to offer.


      I'm not denying that crime/rape (it's weird that you destinguish between the two, but I guess it was just a figure of speech) has gone up. That indeed would be wishful thinking. I'm denying that the low number of immigrants (compared to non-immigrants) actually has any significant influence on total crime rates.

      I just check around the Hive every now and then but I really don't have time on my side right now. Been preparing for college these past few months and I've really been focusing on my studies lately.

      I'm almost done with RotH though. I'll be back in a few more months I guess. Just need to stablelize my life right now haha. I promise though that I'll finish that damn campaign no matter what. It was pretty bold to try something like that but Im always up for a good challenge.

      Good job with your models btw. I really love what you did with Durotan. Best model so far :) Garona's amazing too though her attacks kinda seem slow? Idk maybe its just a thing with the Hive's model viewer. I'll check them both in-game soon.

      Well... maybe people expect more because they saw ur stuff's quality better,
      like when you got 40, People don't really expect much...
      but if you get like 60 marks, people will ask why not 65? and when you got 65, people will ask why not 70 XD

      maybe :P But still... don't like people saying something like that, especially the one that mention about [SPOILER]
      , It make it sounds like you work for him zzz even tho he is not ur boss

      Hey Tauer,

      Just wanted to say that I've been using your models for the past years now, and just recently checked some of your latest out like Garrosh and Grommash...
      I'm seriously shocked to see your improvement on the models, they are really awesome and you really made a couple of the best orc models in the whole wc3 database so far.

      Keep it up!
      I'm a fan! ;)

      Your are definitely on top of current model makers on Hive. Dont mind the criticism. Althou it is good to think about it and say "Is there anything on the statement I can work on?" And if answer is "no" than be cool and forget about them ;) For example on my models, there is most of the times some place for improvement, so I have to pay attention for suggestions, but your models? Naaah, they are awesome. Its like Wš is being reborn with cool new models. Wish I could make texture sand animations as smooth as you ;)

      Hey there Tauer. Just ignore stupid rants of the likes that Eagle did, it's just a waste of time to pay attention to it.
      People like him are never satisfied with the works of others.
      See ya'

      I know firsthand what it is to invest a lot of effort and time into something only to get comments like:
      "Why didn't you do it like that?" (that = like I want it to be like)
      "Meh"
      "Could be better"
      etc...
      Meanwhile you worked your ass off to deliver top quality resource. So yeah... you are very welcome. As usual I am anxious to see your next work!
