J. C. Lester: "Immigration & Libertarianism: Open Borders versus Directionalism"
There is a long and continuing debate on the correct libertarian approach to immigration. This talk first imagines a minimal-state libertarian UK, and then the introduction of several relevant unlibertarian policies and their increasingly disastrous effects. It is argued that ‘reversing’ these imagined policies, as far as is politically possible, would be the correct way forward. Several open-border texts are then criticised, mainly for overlooking the likely huge scale of immigration. The conclusion outlines three broad options on immigration and suggests that directionally-libertarian policies are far more libertarian and practical than open borders. Booking appreciated but not required.
