@hyperalp Bernie Sanders is the "nicest person in the world" huh? i guess that's not stopping him from endorsing border enforcement violence. (for the stupidest reasons, too…)


@sofia Where did you take that 'violence' thing from? He's saying he doesn't support open borders for the primary reason of importing cheap labor.


@hyperalp border enforcement happens by force, strangely enough. and i would think that he knows that.

and for the immigrats doing that "cheap labour" they may be the best-paying jobs they ever had, because opening the labour market would equalize wages, not lower them in total.

and the reason for economic migration tends to be that labour is more productive. it could also potentially be more efficient consumption. in either way it's a net benefit for humanity.

@hyperalp Bryan Caplan goes into greater detail with all of this: youtube.com/watch?v=q6wGLhEW_u

(the book can supposedly be found in the genesiest of libraries 😏)

he also did a few debates. turns out the argument for mirgration control are just bad. (Sanders probably doesn't know that, but that's not an excuse for promoting them)

and what kind of argument is "i want to live in a country", or "people i don't like are for it"?
