Potpourri 4833    "It's A Mad, Mad World.....Walls and Borders?" Part 14
I am not really much into "Poetry." But I do know that some Poets have
offered some very bright wisdom over the years. One who stands tall in that
department is Robert Frost (1874 - 1963) who wrote often of rural settings
in New England. I find his poem "Mending Wall" particularly grabbing.
Each Spring he and a neighbor met to mend their "Stone Fence."
Frost was not a great fan of doing this annual task, and wondered about the
wall's value, but somewhat reluctantly ceded to his neighbor's strong belief that~
          "Good fences make good neighbors."
Seldom have words so wise ever been spoken. I am thankful that we have a six
foot fence around three sides of our property. When my next-door neighbor's
back fence was down last year, all sorts of things (e.g. bicycles, batteries)
went missing. "No siree Bob, we need fences," I say. But Robert Frost
was pretty sagacious and in tune with his own senses when he penned~
         "What I was walling in or walling out,
         And to whom I was like to give offense.
         Something there is that doesn't love a wall,"

He was recognizing that part of his heart saw the fence as "unnatural"
while his "head" knew it was absolutely necessary.
Of course "walls and fences" were not always with us.
They came about as Humankind evolved from being nomadic hunters
to settling more permanently as agrarian farmers. Subsequently,
other occupations developed including the need for "Property Records."
So today's land ownership involves Deeds, Boundaries, Surveying, and Fences.
The earliest Primitive Societies occupied "Territories" but did not believe
in "Private Individual Land Ownership."
In effect, all "Primitive Societies, " including those of our earliest
ancestors, would be classified as being "Communists" in today's world,
although that term is only little over a Century old. The fact that one of the
first statues "Lefties" recently toppled was that of Christopher Columbus
was not surprising. That violent act was not about "Racism."
Columbus "symbolized" the arrival of "Capitalism" to the
shorelines of North and South America. From 1492 on, a "clash"
between White settlers and occupying Indigenous peoples was actually
a War of Ideologies. "Capitalism's" bedrock was "Private
Ownership of Property."
The "Socialist" native tribes could not and
would not accept that vision at all. Representative of that viewpoint was
Tecumseh (1763-1813), a mighty Shawnee Chief.
He attempted to unite numerous tribes from Florida to the "Canadas" to
resist White expansion into America. Known as a great orator, Tecumseh is
reported to have said (via an interpreter)~
     "The way, and only way, to check and stop this evil,
     is, for all the red men to unite in claiming a common and
     equal right in the land; as it was at first; and should
     be yet; for it never was divided, but belongs to all, for the
     use of each. That no part has a right to sell, even to each other."

Now I have quoted Tecumseh's words above because they have implications
in helping understand what the Marxists are doing in North America today.
We saw last summer that they have no respect for Private Property.
Stores were vandalized and looted. Fires were set. The Marxists and
Anarchists showed no regard for buildings that people had put their Life
Savings into.
"Marxists" do that because their "Ideology" places no value
on "Private Property Ownership." They believe that land should
belong to everyone, as in State Ownership.
They are "Globalists" and are against Nations having borders.
If they had their way, lines demarking borders on Maps would be erased.
With an estimated 40 % of the Democrats in power drooling
"Socialist" froth from their lips, Joe Biden is going to
have a hard time setting policies on America's borders.
They don't want borders and want to do away with I.C.E..
Me? I'm with Trump here. I agree with Robert Frost's neighbor~
          "Good fences make good neighbors."
