Good round of thoughtful comments, which I appreciate even

though I'm getting clobbered. Two Points:

- the post is not about being able to choose where you are born, just deciding which country you want to be a citizen of. I don't see how anyone could possibly get the two confused. If you are born here and you want to be a citizen of someplace else, go for it. But you can't have both.

- Somehow this has devolved into an argument over the legitimacy of the nation-state as a construct opposed to Liberty. I agree that it is. But the human race isn't there yet, and the nation-state will not disappear anytime soon, unless it is subsumed to world government, which is no improvement. If anyone wants to make an argument for anarchy they will find no resistance from me. But this is an entirely different discussion.

No one seems to be disagreeing with me and saying "dual citizenship is ok," just that the idea of citizenship of any kind is contrary to Liberty.

A man who views the world the same at fifty as he did at twenty has wasted thirty years of his life.
