What About Open Borders?

good point!

hmm, i see you’re having trouble “imagining” any human organization other than what you’ve experienced… if you could imagine a world without national boundaries, you would see no strong central governments like china, the usa et al making rules and protecting boundaries… we could live in small interactive trading communities in which the local citizens would develop their own unique culture, arts, crafts music, dance culinary specialties and celebrations… that would be like the many indigenous cultures, now threatened by loss of their habitat by exploitative corporate interests… we cannot create a better, healthier and more stable world unless we first imagine the possibilities. we don’t all have to hold the same beliefs, have the same aptitudes, talents and interests. all we’d need do is to accept the other person and his culture as his unalienable right… those who cannot are a part of the problem!

that very intelligent empirical scientific philosopher, albert einstein believed imagination to be very important and i agree!

Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”–― Albert Einstein

Hummingbird, one can “imagine” anything.

However, pretending that something that one can imagine has a snowball’s chance in hell of appearing in the real world is another matter altogether. Pretending that open borders will work in the world that we have right now is about as productive as imagining that the moon is made of green cheese, and about as realistic.
