Is owning a passport a wretched indication that we are not truly free human beings?


Imagine a world without borders - what would it look like? Are we truly free and at liberty if we are considered invalid if we don't have the right paperwork? That we can't cross man-made invented borders without documents is - objectively speaking - rather strange don't you think?

    Mazzy Bolera answers this question so well that nothing is left for me to say except, "Good job, Mazzy! You explained the reasoning behind the need for passports in a clear and thorough manner."

    Why would a planet without borders necessarily eliminate cultural diversity?

    Trying to "imagine" being a civilization whose people have no country...no homeland - Having no borders does not mean one does not have a home. Haha!! It just means freedom to go and come as we please.

    Yes, you have the freedom not to have a passport. You have choice; to have or not to have. :) Freedom = to have a choice.
