Immigrants: Intruders or Guests? A Reply to Hoppe and Kinsella

The Journal of Libertarian Studies

In a free society, goods, capital, and people would enjoy unrestricted freedom of movement based on voluntary relationships and the respect for private property. There would be no borders beyond those established by individuals on their particular domain. This poses no problems or questions for libertarians. The problems and disagreements, however, arise with the welfare state.

What is the Mises Institute?

The Mises Institute is a non-profit organization that exists to promote teaching and research in the Austrian School of economics, individual freedom, honest history, and international peace, in the tradition of Ludwig von Mises and Murray N. Rothbard. 

Non-political, non-partisan, and non-PC, we advocate a radical shift in the intellectual climate, away from statism and toward a private property order. We believe that our foundational ideas are of permanent value, and oppose all efforts at compromise, sellout, and amalgamation of these ideas with fashionable political, cultural, and social doctrines inimical to their spirit.
