I know this is an old point but acting like this creates racial/ethnic tension strictly and not legal/national tension due to illegal workers being able to get the job over U.S born citizens is dumb. There’s been a surge of Canadian immigrants illegally entering the U.S over the last couple of years while everyone focuses on Mexico.I've heard the argument that capitalism leads to Nazism from a lot of these people, and I think it most likely stems from Marx's theory of worker alienation. The theory goes that under capitalism, workers are pitted against each other by expecting to compete for labor, and thus they are psychologically conditioned to view other groups of people as a potential threat to their well-being (the old "the immigrants took our jerbs!" meme).
While I think there is some truth to this, the idea that there is a direct line from capitalism to Nazism is a ludicrous oversimplification of the problem, and most of these left-wing lolcows don't present a viable solution to it.
In reality, capitalism as a system encourages competition among workers to prove who is going to be more capable for the job, which would lead to both workers in a hypothetical scenario becoming skilled enough to get a job elsewhere if they’re unable to land the one they were trying to get.
The only way Nazism could be created from capitalism is if one race were actively trying to take work away from another by some grand conspiracy or something, but that’s not the case for Mexico; it’s a fucking shithole of a country that no one wants to live in, no shit they would want to come here where they have a slightly lesser chance of being shot. It’s less about capitalism being inherently bad and promoting hatred and more about misfortune that other people carry over here that doesn’t even exist in your own country creating holes in an otherwise solid system.
If I build a house in a shitty neighborhood which ends up getting robbed because there’s a lot of expensive shit in it, I’m not going to criticize the concept of houses based on the fact that they’re easy to rob by people and that creates hatred for people just trying to feed their families, I’m going to criticize WHY those people need to rob to feed their families to begin with, which is a whole nother discussion.
