We all know what it's like to be seperated from something. Whether it's our teddy bear at home when we're out the front door, family living in a country with a barrier seperating it and the world, the car behind the school gate or a tall fence divinding you and your neighbours' houses. But what would happen if we had barriers everywhere, what would happen if we had no barriers at all, are there limits to the barriers we build and... can just anyone build a barrier?
Well, having barriers everywhere would be like a prison. The world would be seperated into what my seem a kingdom a person. Bedrooms, gardens, private proppery and alotments are all places that are OURS and have a right to be seperated. But no country 100% belongs to one person. It's not all my country, is it? You may live there, but you don't own it, you may govern it, but you don't own it. With a barrier between every county, it would be a group of people's country, like it's your family's house, your family's garden and your family's alotment.
We have discussed in BNC sessions what it would be like to have no walls or fences. We would have no privacy, what would keep us warm, what would keep us safe, what would keep us dry? Not all seperations are bad, some for saftey and some for privacy. Some for warmth and some for comfort. Either way, taking away all walls wouldn't be practical!
Humans, often have a clear picture of what's yours and mine. However, if everything was sorted into these caregories, mine, and yours, then what would there be for "ours"? If everything belonged to me and him, what would we share? We could live our lives without stepping even meeting each other, as their would only be MY football team, MY netball club!!!
People in power might often think they have th right to seperate people. The thought that because they are important enough to own everything in that country, county, or city. That it all belongs to them. Others may find it harder to put up a wall between them and their neighbough then a political leader will to seperate them an their neighbouring country!
Donald Trump's plan to build a wall isn't obviously, going as well as he'd planned. Does he have the right to put up a wall? Does he have the right to call the situation an emergancy. And will his plan really go on?
