economies. elections.

October 24, 2010

we need to start thinking of countries in terms of economies. who honestly thinks that standing at our borders with shotguns is a way to progress at all. i can’t believe these rabbis or people like carl paladino who are so afraid of differences and think that we need to protect ourselves from them. protection for what reasons? it has nothing to do with nationalism and regardless, how is diversity not an innate part of being american? their ‘americans’ can’t do anything for this country recently besides keep it from acting like we are living 100 years ago.

why do we need borders? if we think of countries as companies, we start to define what is needed very differently. we start valuing progress over anything else.

…just a little snippet to remind myself of the conversation today. lets expand this idea.
