Lind's Challenge for Progressives
By Bryan Caplan
Several of my friends were annoyed that Michael Lind’s profile of me failed to mention my open borders advocacy. They should be happy, then, that this piece makes the libertarian/open borders connection crystal clear. Lind even says this:
If progressives really believe that the U.S. should become the only
sovereign country in the world that does not assert the right to
regulate entry to its territory and participation in its labor markets,
they should team up with the only other tiny sect in America that
believes in open borders: right-wing libertarians.
A left-right open borders team-up isn’t just a great idea; it would make a great comic book. Won’t someone please draw me a cover?
