Taking a Long View: Brave New World … about 20 years ago, when I started in this refugee business, most of my clients were from southeast asia, central america, and eastern europe. They were fleeing bestial despotisms and casual torture. It had a deep impact on my mind, at the time, and I frequently despaired.

But now, well, we get no refugees from those places anymore. While not perfect, all those countries are doing so much better.
