A Look at the Borderless World of John Kerry

John Kerry’s got it right – a borderless world:

“The future demands from us something more than a nostalgia for some rose-tinted version of the past that did not really exist in any case,” he added. “You’re about to graduate into a complex and borderless world.”

How cozy! It’s like one big slumber party, where we can all wear our pajamas and romp around.

But, why did Kerry stop there?

Let’s also have one world university – no borders at all! Just think what it would be like if we just put all of our minds together in one institution. Then we can all be taught the truth as defined by the world’s leading “experts.”

No borders! Just take classes wherever you’d like. Besides, there is just too much competition between universities and the groups trying to rate, accredit, and sell them. Just make them all one – one uniform, standardized product. You can then be sure that you will be getting the same thing wherever you go.

There’s too much conflict in Washington, D.C. among the different parties and branches of government. Let’s just elect one truly enlightened Leader – the world Leader, of course. Then we will no longer need adversarial political parties bickering about each other. If we just trust the man/woman at the top, everything will be peaceful, and just think about how much money we can save!

And while we are at it, let’s also eliminate the boundaries between our Glorious Leader, Congress, and the Supreme Court. Too many competing interests there! We only need one enlightened Leader. And He/She must be given our undivided support.

Wait a second… Aren’t we creating a border between government and the governed? Ach! Let’s let anarchism prevail! Let’s remove all borders – between the police and the policed, between doctors and the doctored, between teachers and the students – all of these class distinctions. How repugnant! If I want to be the teacher instead of the student, well, why not! Borders and class distinctions must come down.

Families represent another needless border that must go. Families divide people. Instead, we have to regard ourselves as one worldwide family without borders. Every child belongs to everyone. You won’t have to wait for the approval of the biological mother to diaper a soiled baby. You won’t even need the approval of the biological she/he/it – what a needless encumberance – to take a child home for the night. After all, biology shouldn’t dictate ownership. Haven’t you ever heard of choice?

Bathrooms? Well take away the borders there also. Male and female bathrooms and locker rooms are a disgrace. Biological determinism must be struck down in favor of choice. We should be able to determine our own lives rather than a biological accident.

And then there also is all that garbage about the borders we construct. You claim that I cannot touch you because, “This is my body, and you have no right to fondle it.” Well, the prevented idea of YOUR stinking body is just another arbitrary biological construction. Instead, I am you and you are me. No borders! Therefore, I have a right to fondle you whenever I please.

If you don’t like it, go complain to John Kerry. If you don’t agree that we live in a “borderless world,” you are a repressive, conservative, hate-filled, biased, homophobic, islamophobic, racist…! If you can’t adjust to the times, you need to be eliminated.
