Within the nation state border concept only capital can move freely without any control. It presents just one of the examples of global capitalist exclusive policy where values of social equality and equal access are mostly ignored or denied. The concern for well-being of each individual is reduced to repressive bio-politic and everyone else, except yourself, knows best what is good for you. In addition the borders between public and private, responsibilities and rights are blurred or misplaced.
The next revolution will be based on empathy and sharing – we are emotional animals and we know it.
