I have a problem with telling somebody who wants border control that they “support a police state”.
While I don’t disagree with Ian’s assessment, I do believe that it is an oversimplification of a complicated issue.
@FTL_Ian often proposes the solution of “just eliminate all government borders”.
This, at face value, sounds like a wonderful idea, but, in reality, it would cause a lot more problems than it “solved”.
If a person is willing to be honest, they will realize that ALL borders (public and private) are state-controlled, and if the public borders are removed, then there will be no resources to maintain the private borders.
