“No borders, no countries”–we’ve been seeing a lot of this lately. And it’s total rubbish.
Why don’t they want borders? Why don’t they want countries? They think it will make them free, and from then on, life will be just beautiful.
It’s amazing what you can believe in, when you have no grasp of human nature.
Just for a moment, try to imagine a world in which there really are no national borders because there are no countries anymore. Such a world, maybe, would have no governments. Oops. No more food stamps. No more federal grants to education. No more a lot of things.
But maybe, instead of having no government, the borderless world would have one great big gigantic government that governs everything and everybody! Wouldn’t that be nice? A satanic parody of Christ’s Kingdom on the earth. It wouldn’t last a minute without dictatorial powers, ruthlessly employed.
And so, instead of freedom, you would have the Soviet Union on steroids. Some of those “no borders” ninnies will be disappointed. Just think–a government big and powerful enough to rule the whole world!
I mean, really–have these people thought this thing through? (Hint: no.)
G.K. Chesterton was right on the money when he said that once you stop believing in God, you don’t believe in nothing: you’ll believe in anything.
