logios, i'm not really taking to task any of what you've written here. rather i'd say the phrase 'like every nation' implies this: nothing needs to be invented, we know how nation states /national states around the world work. most of them have minorities w/indisputable right to live in the land, plus they have immigration policies. basically, to me, what the phrase 'like all other /every other nation' means is, we're not to expect as very probable that the demographics might change leading to a change in the rules, that's for one, & as the second thing, this declared 'system', if you like, entitles the majority to do what's in its power to keep it that way, of course within the stated rules. so the problem is solved. the majority enjoys a place of prominence in certain basic regards, without infringing on basic rights of minorities, & is empowered to keep it that way, primarily by regulating immigration the way it sees fit. & that's what you see happening elsewhere, actually everywhere in europe, the continent packed w/nation states that also are democracies.
