Immigration

Get rid of the welfare state and the ridiculous notion of nationalism… open borders to freedom. Nations and borders will become obsolete soon. It has already started. It won’t be globalism, it will be individualism. The next time I hear someone go on about the “law of the land”, I want them to remember this:
