Do you think if we just did away with nationalities and passports, visas and patriotism, life would be happier and more peaceful.
From Jo'burg's township "Xenophobic" violence. South Africans furious that "foreigners" are stealing jobs and houses - yet, what about Jo'burg residents being angry at inland migration?

First World citizens don't have to jump through hoops, pay more for the sticker in their passports than the plane ticket, learn how to grin and charm and sweet talk and beg borrow and swear when in an embassy queue, to print all life details from how your stomach felt in the morning to your boss's wife's step kids credentials.

Back to fighting and charming and special offering!
