My goal has always been the same: the free movement all peoples across national borders, just as we have free movement across state borders now.
Well, that's a self-fulfilling prophecy, isn't it? If you don't try, you can't succeed. Even if you don't convince me, you could conceivably use me to hone the arguments you'd need to convince thousands of other pragmatists. But you won't even try. Of course, if you don't try can't fail, either. Except that by refusing to even attempt to make a case, you are failing. You will never appeal to anyone outside of those who already accept your ideological premise that freedom of movement across international borders is the one freedom that matters, the only aspect of quality of life worth mentioning.
And they already agree with you. So what have you gained?
And do you think I'm happy or sad that my political opponents like to waste their time preaching to the choir?
