Should Land Boundaries/Borders Exist?
Land boundaries/borders should not exist.
Boundaries are just arbitrary lines that could be changed at any moment. Never-ending changes could be confusing for people to follow.
Borders/boundaries are arbitrary lines that are not real (except when placed in reality) and thus do not exist.
Ownership and responsibility for land does NOT equal to penning off people into groups divided by artificial orders that prevent freedom of movement - which is an innate human need and right.
In an age of globally connected communities facilitated by the internet and advanced communication, trade, relationships and human interactions can no longer be limited by age old borders. National borders must go to create communities that are based on shared values not on physical territory.
On Earth, with limited land space and a growing population, land will run out with people claiming land and protecting it with their border.
People get hurt when borders are crossed, especially when the boundary is unknown and a person crosses a line that is not shown in reality but exists in someone's mind.
Borders allow to determine legal responsibilities. If I make a wrong use of my land, I am responsible. If there are no boundaries, the land belongs to everyone, and nobody is responsible.
Boundaries help with understanding each other's image (brand, purpose, personality...)
Boundaries help establish security and can facilitate economic growth, competetiveness, and equilibriums.
Establishing and enforcing a national border is the right of a nation's people and government.
Boundaries protect, which is why they exist.
Boundaries prevent change from occurring within them, so people have a foundation to work from.
