Immigration and Abortion

Open-border libertarians exhort closed-border libertarians to "man up!" Shrug off the mass-immigration subsidies and forced-association laws, neither of which would exist in the absence of the State, and welcome the migration of alien and hostile cultures in your midst.

Closed-border libertarians exhort open-border libertarians to "man up!" Shrug off the barriers to migration, which wouldn't exist in the absence of the State, and welcome the movement to end mass-immigration subsidies and forced-association laws.

True anarchists know which position to take. They learned everything they need to know from the abortion rights controversy.

Rights Require Faith!

Isn't it odd how Rights require you to believe in things that aren't empirically verifiable and yet the Rights theorists balk at calling their belief in Rights faith? Rights may be part of reality. But they require faith, because there's no way in sensory-sensual space-time to prove they're real.
A helluva lot of us anarchists think they're real, though. Why don't Rights just show themselves and come live among us? Then they'd be real and everyone would believe!
Imagine! No more arguments between Randroids and Rothbardians and Catholic monarchists about "reproductive rights," slant-drilling, intellectual property, hitting the cut-off man, and ensuring non-combatants' safety in "organized" hostilities! O what a wonderful world it would be!
