    Obviously unrealistic- one should also ask whether such a world would be desirable… awfully presumptive to assume that such a world would be “good”.

There are too many differences in culture, customs, and experience for borders to become nonexistent. A lack of borders would establish the need for one, overarching judicial system, which would not realistically be agreed upon by every nation. It would be incredibly difficult to then establish a uniform rule of law. Living standards and working conditions would also need to be consistent, which pose similar issues. In an ideal world people would be able to live and work wherever they choose, but it is not possible in actuality. Read Less

It would also dissolve the sense of nationality, which may or may not be inherently bad, but that would cause major problems. Read Less

    Nope. I think the living situation right now is a critical issue. With this I mean housing and basic services like healthcare and education.

With this I mean housing and basic services like healthcare and education. I think that having people moving freely would mean a flux in the population to which these services simply would not be able to adapt quickly enough to cover basic needs.
    That aside, I think that internet and globalization have made possible already the idea of working in other countries… while staying home.

There might even be conflicting ideas as people across nations have ideals about worth ethics and the types of jobs which might be in conflict with the ideals of the nation they go to work in. Read Less
