Anti-a**hole immigration

Guy Kawasaki has this early review of Robert Sutton's book, The No Asshole Rule: Building a Civilized Workplace and Surviving One That Isn’t. U.S. immigration policy is sorely in need of some of Sutton's anti-a**hole principles:

Do not make people feel oppressed, humiliated, de-energized, or belittled.

Do not mistreat people who are less powerful than you.

Focus on win-win.

Focus on ways you are no better or even worse than others.

Focus on ways you are similar to people, not different.

Tell yourself, “I have enough stuff (money, toys, friends, cars, whatever).”
