For over a year now there has been much to do about walls……in presidential politics and even in the magic of cinema…..so I thought I would do what I always do…..give a historical look at “walls”…….
From the Great Wall of China to Hadrian’s Wall to the New Amsterdam Wall on Wall Street to the Wall defended by Castle Black, walls have a long-standing place in history and pop culture to defend people. But they’re sites of complex interactions, too
Building walls is far from a revolutionary idea. We’ve been building them since ancient times. And they have largely been intended to serve the same purpose: to keep people out (and sometimes in) and define national borders.
Of course I am sure instead of learning from history there will be some sort of debate of what is and what is not “facts”……but that is fine for I have come to not expect much more than that from some……
