Geographers and other social scientists have for the most part ignored (or perhaps even consciously avoided) one of the most pivotal questions of justice in the twenty-first century – the question of ‘free movement’ and the elimination of national borders. In this regard, Bauder is to be commended for pointing to the ‘wastefulness and foolishness of our times,’ and for imagining an anti-Hobbesian world, a welcome antidote to the hypocrisy of so-called western democracies and the seemingly ‘reasoned’ analyses of liberal thinkers. His argument is by no means a new one, but it rekindles a stimulating and I would argue necessary debate.
