One World Movement … R.I.P.

Today’s Times reports that Garry Davis, a modern-day Quijote and “dean of the One World movement” who renounced his US citizenship in Paris on 25 May 1948, has died.

The moribund One World movement poses two puzzles: why do nation-states still exist, and why do “free countries” still have closed borders?

According to the Times, “… Mr. Davis’s long insistence on the inalienable right of anyone to travel anywhere prefigures the present-day immigration debate by decades. It likewise anticipates the current stateless conditions of Julian Assange and Edward J. Snowden.”

prior probability asks, if “free trade” makes economic sense, then why don’t we have an international treaty for “free peoples” … the free movement of goods and people across open borders?

What do you think?
