A Libertarian Against Mass Immigration

I am indebted to David Farrer for mailing me a link to Stephen Cox's 'The Fallacy of Open Immigration', from the October issue of 'Liberty'.
It should be required reading for those who place markets above nations, concluding that,
"Alexander Pope once parodied authors who had no sense of reality, authors who wrote things like:

Ye Gods! annihilate but Space and Time,And make two lovers happy.
The libertarian equivalent would be:

Ye Gods! annihilate but the facts of life,And make our dogmas triumph.
But mere dogmas won't triumph. And they won't help the cause of liberty. It's time to stop believing that they will. "
