The Atlantic has published a piece by open-borders activist Alex Tabarrok entitled “The Case for Getting Rid of Boders – Completely.” And that is the argument the article makes. It is summed up in the subheading, which reads “No defensible moral framework regards foreigners as less deserving of rights than people born in the right place at the right time.”
Tabarrok is Canadian, and possibly Jewish.
Here he is posting Zionist information on Twitter.
For Jews there are no-go parts of European cities. http://t.co/QA5XEQlyaa

For Whites there are also such no-go zones, for those who don’t know; these zones are a result of the very same immigration policy Tabarrok is arguing in favor of.
Living in America, rather than Canada, Tabarrok is also an anti-gun activist.
So his plan is to flood your country with Blacks and Moslems and then leave you with nothing to defend yourself with when they start rioting and kicking in your door.
Though Tabarrok’s argument may seem extreme, it actually isn’t. The idea that we are morally compelled to allow foreigners who have created poverty and hell into our countries because of the metaphysical “lottery of birth” concept, which denies that race and genetics (along with even culture and religion) play a role in the development of a society, is at the core of all mass-immigration sentiment. Tabarrok has merely taken it to its logical conclusion.
To paraphrase Rousseau, man is born free, yet everywhere he is caged. Barbed-wire, concrete walls, and gun-toting guards confine people to the nation-state of their birth. But why? The argument for open borders is both economic and moral. All people should be free to move about the earth, uncaged by the arbitrary lines known as borders.
Not every place in the world is equally well-suited to mass economic activity. Nature’s bounty is divided unevenly. Variations in wealth and income created by these differences are magnified by governments that suppress entrepreneurship and promote religious intolerance, gender discrimination, or other bigotry. Closed borders compound these injustices, cementing inequality into place and sentencing their victims to a life of penury.
Nature’s bounty has put abundant resources on the African continent.
A McKinsey report on African development reads: “Africa boasts an abundance of riches: 10 percent of the world’s reserves of oil, 40 percent of its gold, and 80 to 90 percent of the chromium and the platinum metal group. Those are just the known reserves; no doubt more lies undiscovered.”
The Middle East is lined with oil.
And who created these governments that oppress them, if not they?
And while the benefits of cross-border movements are tremendous for the immigrants, they are also significant for those born in destination countries. Immigration unleashes economic forces that raise real wages throughout an economy. New immigrants possess skills different from those of their hosts, and these differences enable workers in both groups to better exploit their special talents and leverage their comparative advantages. The effect is to improve the welfare of newcomers and natives alike. The immigrant who mows the lawn of the nuclear physicist indirectly helps to unlock the secrets of the universe.
What about the immigrant who lives on welfare and sex traffics local girls?
And what about the millions of unemployed in our countries that could be mowing that lawn if their jobs weren’t taken from them by immigrants?
The article rambles on, but you get the picture.
It is an obvious fact that if we were to completely open the borders now, we would get so much of what we are getting – welfare dependency, rape, robbery, assault, rioting, etc. – that we would very quickly be overwhelmed and crushed by these people, probably eaten, and then they would promptly return to their own warmer climates where they can live without the White man keeping the heat on.
The position is insane. Yet a major American publication is arguing for it. Presumably, the purpose is to adjust the Overton Window to the left. No government is actually going to do this, as they know that they themselves would be murdered. But it makes their own positions seem more reasonable when you read this man’s madness.
Hey @ATabarrok, are you Jewish? Do you support open borders for Israel?
