On "Illegal" Immigration

After first destroying all economic frontiers between nations, capitalism now resurects old cultural frontiers and religious and racial divides in order better to control working people everywhere. And so our world seems to be retrogressing to pre-Cold War national chauvinisms, pre-World War II racism, and pre-Enlightenment religious persecution.
