Open Borders are Our Only Hope
In-group Preference and National Borders Fundamental to the danger of nation-states and borders are the paradigms of nationalism and in-group preference that exploit human quirks to justify violence. In-group preference is best understood in terms of the creation of teams through the dehumanization of an ‘other.’ In-group preference is mentally categorizing someone who is somehow…
Decriminalize Immigration, Free Movement for All!
The United States recently experienced its first wave of large-scale anti-immigration raids following the election of Donald Trump, who made the mass deportation of “illegal” immigrants a central part of his campaign. Although ICE officials claim that these raids targeted individuals with criminal records, immigrant rights groups dispute this claim, arguing that law-abiding people were…
La Sinistra Lieta di Tradire Libertà e Cosmopolitismo
[Di Edmund Berger. Originale pubblicato su Center for a Stateless Society il 15 gennaio 2017 con il titolo Leftist Politicians Will Always Happily Betray Liberty & Globalism. Traduzione di Enrico Sanna.] Nel suo discorso di nuovo anno, soprannominato “il giorno del caos”, il leader del partito laburista britannico Jeremy Corbyn ha colto l’occasione per far…
Leftist Politicians Will Always Happily Betray Liberty & Globalism
In his first speech of the new year, an event now being dubbed the “day of chaos”, British Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn seized opportunity to unleash torrents of his confusion in his support base and back-pedal on one his long-held positions. Bowing to the pressure of the conservative wing of the party — and to…
Nationalism and Democracy, An Exit To Nowhere
Elites will never be stripped of their privilege by the method of their ascension. The impoverished will never stop being robbed of their potential by handing it over to new elites. The decision by the majority of voting British citizens to leave the European Union has been seen as a mandate against unaccountable technocratic governors…
The Tohono O’odham Nation: A Case for Sovereignty
The border that separates the United States and Mexico has been the cause of many controversies and constant violence. When a wall of separation is created to notify where a certain territory begins and ends, whether they oppose each other or not, there are bound to be complications. One group that is literally in the…
A Strange Understanding of Small
Conservative pundit Laura Ingraham has a strange understanding of small government. Unfortunately, she’s not alone. When Nikki Haley delivered the GOP response to Barack Obama’s final State of the Union address, expressing concern about xenophobia and border paranoia, Ingraham was disappointed. She tweeted: “Too bad @NikkiHaley missed her oppty to stand w/ working ppl who…
Nazionalismo Cristiano e Profughi Siriani
Gli attentati di Parigi del tredici novembre erano ancora in corso quando già si levavano le prime voci che chiedevano porte chiuse ai profughi in Europa e America. Per chi conosce la politica e gli obiettivi dello Stato Islamico, l’organizzazione fascista responsabile degli attentati, la tragedia è evidente. Come i tanti spacconi sciovinisti e nazionalisti…
Christian Nationalism vs. the Syrian Refugees
The Paris attacks on 11/13 were hardly concluded before the first cries for excluding refugees from Europe and the U.S were shouted. The tragedy is clear to those who know the politics and goals of the Islamic State, the fascist organization responsible for the attack. Like so many western chauvinists and nationalistic goons in this country…
Quanto Può Cadere in Basso Lew Rockwell?
È da tanto che anarchici e libertari prendono in giro, riducendola a stereotipo, la classica risposta dell’infantilismo di sinistra di fronte alla prospettiva di una società senza stato: “Come la mettiamo con le strade?” Ma ora due libertari (autodefinitisi tali) hanno fatta loro questa espressione. Rispondendo all’asserzione chiaramente autoevidente secondo cui, da un punto di…
How Low Can Lew Rockwell Go?
For a long time, anarchists and libertarians have mockingly characterized the stereotypical liberal goo-goo response to any vision of a stateless society as “But what about the rooaaads?” But now a couple of libertarians — at least that’s what they call themselves — have made that phrase their own. In response to the seemingly self-evident…

Sanders’s Immigration Comments Prove We Need a Radical Left
Bernie Sanders thinks open borders are a “right-wing proposal” that “would make everyone in America poorer.” Sanders’s comments not only display a shocking ignorance of the economics of immigration, but also a disappointing, racist, xenophobic tendency among the mainstream left. While Sanders also thinks we have a “moral responsibility” to “work with the rest of…
Have Republicans Learned to Love the Berlin Wall?
Anderson Cooper recently complained, on his July 22nd CNN show, that presidential candidate Donald Trump has thus far offered “not one shred of proof” for his repeated claim that “the Mexican government is behind the illegal immigration” and are “the ones pushing … these people over the border.” At which point Cooper’s guest Jeffrey Lord,…
The Cognitive Dissonance of State-Apologists
“If you don’t like it, you can get out!!!” If you say this to critics of your preferred nation-state while also supporting immigration restrictions, then you may have some cognitive dissonance that you should work on. Yet nationalists and statists say this to critics of the U.S. government all the time, and they tend to…

Another World is Possible: Happy Open Borders Day!
Today, March 16th, marks Open Borders Day. On this day, people around the world seek to imagine a world radically different from the status quo.
