I am merely -- helpfully! -- enumerating two totally invalid, illogical, and stupid arguments against building walls, so that now people can stop repeating them and instead take up valid, logical, and intelligent arguments.
Why would it be better to have no borders? Why would you think borders are inherently morally evil? Borders seem morally neutral, to me.
Aha, here is why. You associate walls with Communism. Communism was evil (agreed), and the most famous wall of our generation was associated with Communism.
I, on the other hand, associate walls with many other things: Private Gated Communities, for instance. These are excellent developments for liberty -- innovative, free-market, problem-solving, spontaneous, decentralized.
I think of city-states like Syracuse, Luxembourg, the Vatican, and San Marino.
