I guess things can look that way when you're playing yet another paladin in Dungeons & Liberty.
For people living in and thinking about the actual physical world we all inhabit, the difference is night and day.
Reminds me of the old saying: "In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice; in practice, there is."
If in practice, your philosophy requires it to be just as difficult to physically leave the planet as it does to physically cross a national border, that's a glaring failure of the real-world test which any philosophy must ultimately pass, or fail.
Let's not be ambiguous: if your philosophy cannot be effectively applied in the real world, it is a literal fantasy.
