Still More on Immigration
By Arnold Kling
My latest essay uses the N-word.
What should you call someone who wants government to provide for our education, competitiveness, and health care but whose concern about “us” stops at the border? The obvious label would be national socialist. But George Bush and Paul Krugman are not Nazis…
The alternative ideology that I would propose might be called transnational libertarianism. The ideal libertarian world would have no economic borders. There would be no problem of illegal immigration, because all forms of immigration would be legal.
UPDATE: See also Chris Coyne, who, like me, is more concerned with the institutions of freedom than ethnic identity.
