There is a place for border walls.
Walls are not bad.
And neither are all people.
But some people are bad.
And we have the right to be protected from them.
Walls help to manage the flow.
Not everyone can just go whatever, whenever, wherever.
Surely, some people need to move to and fro.
But we must decide who and when and where.
Walls define spaces and ownership.
Not every place and thing is everyone’s.
People have property rights as do sovereign nations.
Not everything is strictly defined.
There is the commons that we share.
But also there is a mine and a yours.
That’s how economics functions and how people give and take.
Walls help separate and secure.
Bridges help connect and transport.
They are not mutually exclusive.
I’ve never seen a house, company, organization, or government without walls.
And neither have you. 😉
