Here’s hoping this postcard finds you well. It has been 30 years since the abolition of the passport and various visa requirements and things are looking up, contrary to the dire warnings of doomsayers who said this would lead to untold chaos. The notion of open borders, a truly democratic global citizenship, and the free movement of people and ideas have become the norm. The world has become truly, in a manner of speaking, a pluralist village square. Even the nationalists who opposed the idea of a world without borders have abandoned arms and joined the contest of ideas. The battle is by no means over. Some continue to hold onto the dated idea of the nation-state and the passport. We must remain forever vigilant.
