The ‘open borders’ lunatics

weekend blog

Every few days I check Amazon to see if I’ve somehow managed to sell another couple of copies of my books. When I go to the Amazon page featuring one of my books, there are always recommendations from Amazon for other books which Amazon’s AI computer thinks will be of interest to me. Today when I checked on a book I wrote in 2015 – THE GREAT CHARITY SCANDAL – Amazon recommended a book titled FREEDOM: The Case For Open Borders:

Here’s the blurb for this book:

“We all deserve to be free. Once upon a time, we were free to go wherever we chose. It wasn’t so long ago. The history of humanity, is a tale of constant motion.”

“People are supposed to move about. We have imaginations which encourage us to dream about life in other places, bodies which are built to roam, and hands which can make an array of vehicles. A few of us even possess the “Wanderlust Gene”, which encourages us to take risks – to sail across unchartered oceans, and launch ourselves towards faraway planets.”

“Some of us are forced to relocate. Lots of us choose to migrate. A few of us belong to nomadic communities.”

“But if one thing is clear, it’s that mobility improves our societies. Emigrants send back billions in remittances – helping to reduce poverty, and inspiring their peers to upskill. Immigrants do the work that their hosts are unwilling or unable to perform. They sustain economies which have ageing populations. They establish industries, invent products, create jobs, increase wages, fuel growth, pay taxes, and enrich our cultures – enhancing our music, arts, sports, languages and cuisine.”

“It’s time to celebrate movement! It’s time to demand our freedom! It’s time for open borders! This book explains why – making the historical, scientific, economic, cultural, political and philosophical cases for free movement.”

The author describes himself as “a scruffy nomad, unchained free-thinker, and post-modernist radical. He was raised in one of the anonymous suburbs that wrap themselves around London’s beating heart. Then he escaped! With a degree from the London School of Economics to his name, Sheldon had spells selling falafel at music festivals, being a ski-bum, and failing to turn the English Midlands into a haven of rugby league.

Then, in 2013, he stumbled upon McLeod Ganj; an Indian village which is home to thousands of angry monkeys. It was there that Sheldon wrote his debut novel, ‘Involution & Evolution’. Eleven years down the line, he’s penned eight titles in total, including two works of non-fiction: “DEMOCRACY: A User’s Guide”, and his latest release, “FREEDOM: The Case For Open Borders”.

While the author drools over all the wonderful supposed ‘benefits’ of uncontrolled immigration, he fails (IMHO) to mention some possible downsides:

  • destruction of our culture
  • breakdown in social cohesion
  • bankrupting our social security systems, healthcare and schools
  • massive increase in violence and crime, especially crime against women
  • invasion by a hostile army

Why do I bother mentioning this (IMHO) pile of utter nonsense by someone who (IMHO) is a complete idiot? Because there are probably millions of our own citizens who have been brainwashed at schools and universities to loathe their own countries and to believe that we’re all part of one happy family so anyone coming from any Third-World, self-inflicted hell-hole is a wonderful human being who has greater rights to the benefits of our country than our own citizens:

This invasion will only get worse under the ghastly Keir ‘Blair mini-me’ Starmer and flame-haired lefty temptress Angie ‘several homes’ Rayner.

Truly we are rushing towards our own destruction.

    There is a strong trade argument for more open borders and that is free-trade which we do not have. The government should not control trade or impose tariffs on imports or subsidise exports. It should be our decision about what we decide to buy. We don’t need government regulation, we just need to be informed about the quality of goods. If we buy something that harms us in some way we will learn by out errors.

    Borders could be more open for movement of people, but we should not allow those in with criminal records or those who do not have the means to support themselves without needing welfare. I’ve had enough of asylum seekers. If people here want to support them, then they can create charities to deal with it and only those that can be funded should be allowed in.
