No. Why would I assume that economic freedom equates to a sharing of the cultural background that produces vibrant and free societies? Singapore, for example, is a one-party state with little actual political freedom; ferinstance, it has no tradition of free speech and dismisses it as a 'disharmonious' Western value. They're right. It *is* a disharmonious Western value, and that's one reason why the West has been dominant over the East since Alexander.

Alright, so what countries, if any _would_ you support free migration between the U.S.?

None. I don't want angry women-hating, free-speech-hating, Muslims emigrating to Britain and then to here anymore than I want them coming here directly.
