Comment: Logic, eh?

(See in situ)

Logic, eh?

I've always wondered what the logic was behind the idea that imaginary lines drawn on a map constitute some kind of mystical "stargate" that is capable of changing how the world works.

I mean, come on, people!!! What super advanced technology is contained in those "borders"?!?!?!

Does it seperate good from evil?
rational from irational?
intellegent from the dull?
the wise from the ignorant?
Does crossing it give you a high?
make you rich or poor?
success or a failure?

Man, I'm starting to think that the "border" thing is just some more B.S. resulting from deadly stupid and irrational ideas such as patriotism, nationalism, protectionism, and even merchantilism.

The right to move ones body and property in an unrestricted manner is one of the oldest human rights we have, dating all the way back to the Magna Carta, at least.

Notice I said HUMAN rights, not American rights. Aren't mexicans simply HUMANS deserving the EXACT SAME freedoms as Americans, and every other human on the face of the earth?

....And if it is their inalienable, god-given RIGHT to cross the invisible line for any reason they wish, they can't possibly be ILLEGAL aliens. In fact, any law that restricts this basic, indeniable right, is itself ILLEGAL!!!

There's no such thing as "border economics". There is only good economics and bad economics. Those of you wanting to stop people from crossing the border(in either direction) are practicing BAD economics.
