I wrote Open Borders: Case Study because the current circumstance in Europe offers a very good case study on this idea of open borders, an idea supported vociferously by many libertarians. I used this real world case study from the real world we live in to suggest that this idea was perhaps not all that its advocates suggest it to be.
I received many comments – this might be the most commented-upon post I have ever written. Many, obviously, took me to task for what I wrote. That’s fine, I learn through such dialogue.
But what I haven’t seen is a libertarian open borders advocate, via this case study (as close to a social science experiment as one might ever hope to achieve in a real world setting), demonstrate the virtues of their idea.
I would welcome any links to such articles and commentaries – there must be dozens, judging by the numerous libertarian advocates of this position.
I understand the virtues for those fleeing war, but they aren’t the only individuals to be considered. I am not looking for one-sided analysis. Take into account the situation for all affected individuals.
I want a case study – not theory, not principle, not dreams of humans as something other than human.
Someone must have done so. Please provide the links.
