Some people think that hiring 10000 refugees is above all (and without
other consideration) an act of compassion; some others think that to do
it per se (without meditate the pros and cons) is an act of
irresponsibility. As remarked by Yosem Companys, the reality and our
thinkings (and feelings) are not (usually) black or white. We should
avoid to make a war in the name (or with the guns) of our absolute point
of view.
