See I know that evolution is wrong, so I don't have to degrade myself like you do, by thinking of myself as just an 'upright monkey', or the same as a plant, or a rock etc.

when i say nationalist isolationism i refer to the way you guys all want to build a wall around the patch of ground you live on and shout at everyone outside that wall. you act like your nation is entirely separate from the rest of the world, like it's its own island or maybe even a tiny little planet, and that you can seal it right off from what you see as the evils of the rest of the world and you'll somehow be safe.
But like, that's not the way the world works buddy, it's all connected and the whole thing relies on the rest of the planet. You can build the best damn wall that ever was and keep out absolutely everyone but if some country on the other side of the world poisons the seas then you're just as screwed as the rest of us.
Pretty sure most of you don't even truly know what it is you're scared of - there's talk in this thread about migrants diluting "stats" or something incredibly vague about a national identity or whatever and there's all this posturing like that's some sort of objective truth but man i don't know how to tell you that we're all just weird upright monkeys messing around on a patch of dirt.
Borders are imaginary. The birds don't care about borders, they go where they will. Really funny that you accuse me of hating freedom when you want everyone to be locked in a little box with a specific flag on it that supposedly dictates everything about them. Certainly sounds like someone is scared of freedom and gosh it ain't me.
