Friday March 10. Today, Jacob Hornberger writes a response to my recent post on culture and open borders. It earned the topmost spot on his daily email.
Why Jacob is writing regarding my post that was in response to something written by Sheldon Richman, I have no idea. Can’t Richman speak for himself?
I haven’t read Jacob’s post, and I am not going to read it. Instead, I offer this post. In it, I offer the reasons why I have stopped wasting my time debating this issue with Jacob or even reading anything he writes on the subject. In it, I also suggest that he is stuck in a contradiction of his own making (as is just about every open-borders libertarian, albeit each for different reasons, perhaps).
Jacob is very good on many issues – most notably war. On this topic, he is terrible. Until Jacob makes an honest attempt to engage, instead of continuously changing the argument when he is trapped, I will ignore him.
I will make certain he sees this post.
