I do not usually talk about these things, I hate talking about politics and football, basically because they do not foster creative thinking, they are disruptive, it creates conflict because there will always be different sides to the story, and there is no right or wrong. I would rather talk about science and what’s been proven to work, and practical matters that work because it has been tested and we use it.
However all these recent events have prompted me to have an argument. Not because I want to, but because social circles pressure us to say something. More and more people are talking about this topic and if you don’t have any ideas, you are basically out of the conversation.
I am not advocating for Hillary, neither whether European Union or Britain should remain, as people in different countries are brought up in different environments and the social circumstances highly affect how people think. What I do believe is in the idea of united Earth.
European Union has promoted widely, concepts that I believe are humanly universal, such as free people movement. One of the most important reasons Brexit happens is because there is too much population in UK and mostly due to immigration. I wouldn’t argue with that, but to tell the truth I believe free movement will be a standard sooner or later and in a global scale.
Main problem here are the economic differences. The concept of free movement is not for the immature, if you know what I mean, it will be achieved when there is certain economic development. It is all a timing thing. We’ve seen it. European countries were not unified in the past because different countries had different levels of development. With the adherence of new member states to EU, countries such as Poland and many other Eastern European countries saw a massive exodus to UK because of the different in economic development. But this is all part of the equation. Now Brits complain about this, but with time, free movement will have its prevalence because of an improved equality, people will not massively move.
Obviously some arguments will mention the fact that there will always be inequality, which I believe too, but the differences will not be so big. It will be like the differences within a country, in a national scale, that is, it will be like the difference between a big city and small village in terms of development, but not as different as the one between tribe and civilization. As humans develop over time, put apart their differences, economies develop, equality increases, therefore there will not be such a big immigration force, people will need to freely move basically due to business needs, travel needs etc. At that point, free movement will no longer cause problems, as it will converge in a more balanced migration of population from one place to another, and there wouldn’t be any notable differences moving to one country or another, as differences are not big in terms of income or social welfare.
Going back to our topic, doesn’t matter if UK people vote Brexit, or Trump builds his wall, or terrorists kill people. Everything will go back to these advances in humanity. We will have a united world sooner or later, it is a natural tendency such as water flowing through holes and cracks and it will be pushed when time is right, either when global economic development is stable, society is stable or aliens arrive.
