borders

Is it a good thing to have borders or not?

It seems to be necessary to control immigration in some way because of criminals. But if authorities cooperate it may be possible to catch them even if they move from one land to another and there is little control at the border. This is partly a reality for the nordic countries as people living there do not need to show a visa travelling from one country to another. This is of course also the case in the European Community but poses problems for some nordic countries as they are not EC members (Norway and Iceland).

We have been speaking about official borders between countries but of course one can find all sorts of different borders between people, between black people and white, rich and poor, young and old. Will those borders fade if we take the official borders away?
