German Chancellor Angela Merkel gave a tribute to globalism during a commencement ceremony at Harvard University on Thursday, demanding “walls of ignorance” be torn down.

Merkel, in her years as German Chancellor, has accepted more than a million migrants into Germany with the country’s foreign-born population now reaching more than 10.6 million in a country of 82 million residents.
