"In early modern Europe, vagabonds without passes were hanged,
imprisoned, branded and shipped off to the colonies, including America.
Requiring a birth certificate to document citizenship is no less
irrational. We need governments, but we don’t need nations. People
should be free to move across borders; they should be citizens of the
states where they happen to reside — period." - Jacqueline Stevens, May 18, 2012.
