Axe the temporary workers program, Opinion April 21
There is only one reason why states ever tighten or loosen the ridiculous rules of entry for the ridiculous lines in the sand known as borders: the whims of the slave masters (i.e. capitalists, socialist bureaucrats, etc). The demand exists for labour, so people who need money will try to supply, by peacefully exchanging their labour for goods and money.
Policy violently coerces these people to the will of the state as ever before, but Haroon Siddiqui thinks complaining about water being wet will make it dry. He misses the elephant in the room: economics.
Economics must inform our political opinion or it is an argument from ignorance. All politics is economic, but not all economics is political. Politics mainly involves the economic form of exchange known as coercion, which we can differentiate sharply from voluntary market exchanges.
The state threatens to create a subjective disvalue to you (prison/physical submission) greater than the subjective value they demand you give up (liberty). In the case of the border, the corrupt “Canadian” state is forcefully permitting only those who meet their stupid criteria to cross.
The demand for labour is there so peaceful people try to supply it. The state imposes regulation so that this process will be orderly, but as Siddiqui outlines well, state attempts to supply labour lead to disorder. Why does the state create only disorder by its attempts to manage the economy in an orderly manner? For the reason we must look to the economic.
Coercion is a universal disvalue. The coerced gives up something of value, the coercer produces and exchanges nothing, so since both parties incurred costs, there is an obvious loss of subjective value. No matter what, the system loses in the aggregate.
Since everything the state does is based on coercive force, the economic system loses value (therefore wealth) every time the state acts in any capacity, including schools, libraries, and medical “care.” Employers stymied by state border coercion, simply use an end-run strategy (smuggling, graft, etc), which leads to disorder.
The more they tighten border policy, the more “illegal” immigration you will have, criminalising peaceful people and creating an underclass of oxymoronically “illegal” human beings. Can a person commit a crime simply by being alive? It seems to negate the very purpose of law: to protect our right to life.
Nature is chaos, but nature is orderly, so chaos produces order. We know from chaos theory that when force is introduced to a chaotic system, the natural order is disrupted. The flow is interrupted and the gradual structuring of chaos into order becomes disorder. An economy is the same thing. Man’s natural state is anarchy, or private rights defence (as opposed to public).
If natural is anarchy, then anarchy is chaos, since nature is chaos. If chaos produces order, then anarchy is the mother of order!! Down with the state!!
