Yeah, I may be liberal - here is what I think

I saw a documentary about refugees in France
there were about 60,000 of them - of which only 3,000 were accepted as refugees
They were literally living on the streets
Many of them wanted to go to Germany or England(UK)
Because once they are accepted as legal refugee, they are better treated
Say in germany - you are given a 2-bedroom apartment and about 450 Euro per person
Now, as over 60,000 of people started to flood in daily to germany - they can't contain either
So, Euro leaders gathered, and offered Turkey - we will give 3 billion euro and a chance to join Euro
You keep refugees in your nation
Many refugees started to scream, "where is justice, I am here, laying in the streets of Paris"

Here is what I think
France is not a place to ask for justice,
These offerings and money are all from people's taxes
And people worked to pay for taxes - it's NOT from heaven
So there comes the idea- countries exist for their own benefits and profits of their own citizens
What Africa or Syria need is their own "capability" to build a nation
And build a nation like China, or Greece or France in their own land
they need that independence - They need to learn - they belong to their nation
Some of them must be leaders - like ben franklin to build their own nation
You know?
