Mycroft said he though that birthright citizenship was " one of the most ridiculous laws I have ever heard of." I thought to myself 'is it really?', did a google search and found a page with 30 countries that have it and posted my FYI. That's it.

Using the numbers argument it would be possible to condemn the abolitionists.
Using numbers the abolitionists could point to the number of human beings raped, tortured and murdered by slaveholders or the number of families destroyed by slaveholders selling family members of slaves to other slaveholders. They could point out the value of the labor stolen (in the trillions of dollars in current dollars) by slaveholders.
