My colleague A and I were just discussing the condition of illegal immigrants here in Belgium. And then I remembered one of our professors here saying:
"The greatest global injustice of today is the fact that some people can freely enter other people's borders, while others cannot."
He makes a lot of sense. How has it come to happen that a citizen from the US or from the EU can freely enter any country just with their passports, while people from other countries such as those from the Philippines have to go through great pains (callous illegal recruiters, demanding legal recruitment agencies, CRUEL AND RUDE embassy officials, money hungry medical institutions tied up with embassies, and the like) just to enter other countries' territories?
Governments will have a ready answer for this, but all that I believe is simply pain bull__! If you get out of the technalities, the answer to this question is plain and simple.
We have not gone past the colonial age. We are still in it, that is, in its more monstrous form.
