Fwiw mate, I didn't see Kwacky's post as being particularly sarky.

Perhaps mate, instead of your "cheap wit" reference, you could remember that "a bigot is one who slams his mind in your face" ?
Discussing, and keeping our minds open to different views to those we have adopted, is the only way we can develop & overcome. (nod)

Look back over Europebefore the likes of Italy and Germany became Nations.

Yugoslavia

Ireland.

I’m not saying don’t have Nations, I’m saying don’t have a physical border that requires permits to cross.

From April next year Scotland has its own income tax and Wales the year after. You can still have Nations and nationality but no physical border.

That all depends on where, and when....and certainly doesn't seem to work in Europe

My clear lack of intelligence prohibits me from being able to fully articulate my argument beyond "good" and "not good".

Europe pre Italy and Germany was a general melee of smaller states conflicts and wars were almost the normal state of affairs.
Europe post Italy and Germany has seen the Franco-Prussian war, WW1, WW2 and the cold war as well as the Spanish civil war and the conflict in Bosnia , I don't see what point you are making here .

I believe that Yugoslavia was formed in the 1920's , was split by the Nazi's during WW2 , reformed under Tito post WW2 and then dissolved into the Bosnian conflict in the 90's which caused genocide and the intervention of UN security forces . A nation was formed from a bunch of independent states dissolved their internal borders and eventually engaged in genocide before returning to a bunch of independent states . Again I fail to see the point you are making .

Ireland , I presume you are talking about the North South Border, it is still in existence , it's Eire on one side and the UK on the other , it may not be actively enforced but it still exists .

Scotland and Wales are not Nations , they were conquered by the English in the 17th and 11th centuries respectively and have not been granted sovereignty since .

I think it is very reductivist to say that the abolition of borders would be a simple answer to a very complex question .

My paternal grandmother was Jewish. She had to leg it from France when the neighbours grassed her family up to the Germans. I don't think she saw her family again.

I don't believe there is any excuse for abortion these days except in extreme medical cases , contraception is very reliable , I think that if we stopped promoting single motherhood through the use of welfare and social programs there would be far fewer unwanted pregnancies .

I can't see anything wrong with capital punishment , I think we have the capabilities with modern forensic science to make certain that mistakes are not made in regards to identifying the correct person(s) .

If you dissolve physical borders and any man can travel to where he wants, any politician would have a **** hard job trying to persuade the ordinary citizen to fight over a piece of land he could visit and live in anyway.
