When one ventures to opposite sides of the immigration universe at openborders.info, he/ she can find the following case for open borders: immigration restrictions should be removed because they; “arbitrarily discriminate against people based on their place of birth, and enforce these restrictions coercively.” In other words, nation states selectively granting citizenship or immigration to… Continue reading Why your nation, ancestry and birthplace matters
Whenever nationalist issues of immigration, identity, pride, culture and race emerge across the Western world, we excessively consider the perspectives of immigrants and outsiders over our own.

It states that as whites own both… Continue reading Why ‘White Fragility’ is Nonsense: Part 1
