The world will be borderless if each and every human leaves the thought of caste, creed, religion from the bottom of their soul.

As we can see, the world is now ridden with wars and terrorism. The severe fights between terrorists and innocent citizens of Afghanistan are very disheartening. The wars between Israel and Palestine last year were fatal. And how can we forget the two World Wars? These all conclude that there will always remain thought of hatred amongst the world citizens. One more reason is that since birth we human beings have been taught to live in our own confined space since birth. If you recall Robert Frost's poem we did last year, 'Mending wall', even when the narrator wanted no wall to come between them, it remained because of his neighbour. Similarly, one person wanting no wall between them doesn't mean that all will want the same. Also, the border to anything marks a limit that no other person shall exceed. Therefore, I think borders are really important to ensure lawfulness and discipline.

When we talk about borderless, we mean open but secured borders. Someday flying vehicle was a myth and now we have airplanes flying across the globe. Hence the idea of borderless is a soon to be reality of the modern world. Countries these days are mostly focused on development rather than territorial expansion which means, our borders are somewhat static. Posing arguments in favour of borderless world. Let's begin with globalisation. Tarrif free borders have aided majorly in freedom of movement of goods, capital and labour. Properly regulated, this allows even distribution of labours across the world. In addition to this, the non uniform distribution of resources is pooled and distributed to necessity of different countries. Secondly, the international refugee crisis. Where only some countries are concentrated with a major inflow of refugees to take into asylum, a global crisis is a burden on some of the nations due to border restrictions. Open borders and mutual duties can reduce the burden of refugees in developing countries. Borders are the reflection of division. Common world threats of pollution, climate change, terrorism can easily be solved it nations identified themselves in a global diaspora instead of nation states and backing off with a mentality of "not in my backyard ". Fourth point is cultural, social and educational flow among countries. Ideas complementing each other and inciting creativity while making people realise being a part of globe and identifying themselves as global citizens, calling all to accept differences in culture and cherish them, tolerate, and promote the notion of universal brotherhood. Lastly, if we just imagine the amount of money diluting in investment to enhance border security, we will most certainly realise how different and noble it will be had. Those two countries pooled that sum contributing to curb mutual problems like poverty, unemployment and education. Lastly, I would conclude with. Borders are to protect and not divide. Let's not let the centuries old lost battles, conflict or colonisation decide the borders of today and take up responsibility as a global citizen to understand and not stereotype borders. Be open in ideas yet secured in our homes.

Yes. A borderless world is possible if the things are supposed to be done according to Islamic rule. People set their minds in accordance with the modern world and here, we think of only ourselves only. But by the Islamic point of view, we should think about this universe. Not only of this planet. Even this universe has no border then why should here. Where we didn't exist in case of space. Now, here the situation is different. We are heading towards a future where we don't know if we are going to survive tomorrow or not, yes the so-called atomic world, we can't think what is going to b done tomorrow, small disputes among the countries could lead to a big disaster. So here should b the border to every country with its distinct lines and boundaries.

Thank you.

A borderless world. If we started thinking that tha borderless world is possible is not. Basically everything should be limited and processed. So the things which could be developed will known from our near border. Many improvements and things will be accessed. So the borderless world is possible when the everyone are from same community, region, language and all. If people all is one then the borderless is possible.

A borderless world is indeed a myth because since birth we human beings have been taught to live in our own confined space since birth. For eg we all live in our separate houses each family has a different house from the other so here each different house has been marked as an individual territory, therefore, the concept of borders has been imbibed in our conscience since birth as every sapien has been taught to mark its territory for safety. Also, the border to anything marks a limit which no other person shall exceed. Therefore, I think borders are really important to ensure lawfulness and discipline.

I believe a borderless world is a myth and will never be able to occur because as said by everyone yes there will be one ruler.

And what I believe is that if there is one ruler then that ruler can be authoritative, the ruler might not be approachable and for the ruler to administer well he would have to appoint some officers for which boundaries will be created again, so thee is no chance of a borderless world.

The world will not be able to function or overcome its social security problems, economic problems.

There won't be any freedom as such.

In my thoughts borderless world is myth because if the world borderless then that world has to face lot of problems.


1. Poverty.
2. Education problem.
3. Water and light.
4. Army and police.
5. Proper distribution of resources.
6. Women safety.
7. Caste system.
8. Language problem.
9. Population explosion.
10. Who will control proper law and order.

Finally, everyone is selfish and many of them try to be king of the world and the normal public will suffer.

So the Borderless world is a myth.

In my perception, a Borderless world is not really possible because there are so many problems with this.

Firstly, we know that in the world there are different types of people who have different thinking. If somehow we created the borderless world then people will not be able to communicate properly as they speak different languages and follow different traditions and have different cultures so they will mix up and make a farrago which will create an imbalance in human society.

According to me, it is not possible to have Borderless world because there are a different kind of people in different country there views and thinking on particular problem varies, also one single constitution not able to handle the various kind of person, Apart from these we make a borderless world there will be a condition of riots everywhere which leads to retardation in economy of world if constitution want to implement some new rule some people support it and some become opponent to it which leads to crux among people.
