Kohunlich Mayan Ruins: Temple of Masks
Bottom right: they roled the heads of their captured neighbors down these steps just a few hundred years ago - that's a mere heartbeat in historic terms.
We need to guard against recent inclinations to fear our neighbors. Building great walls and temples like this seemed necessay in less enlightened times before the Magna Carta, the printing press, communications, satellites, diplomacy and NGOs (Trump can't see this from his 5th Avenue cave).
Since we have evolved socio-politically over the past 500 years or so, simple caveman solutions to complex modern day problems will not work. As much as Donald Trump would like to have people believe so, he cannot act in good conscience without first learning his job, and enlightening himself on world affairs and diplomatic nuances. Instead, he shows complete disinterest in learning and is surrounding himself with b-list neocons. Moreover, Trump needs everything Dorothy's friends asked for in the Wizard of Oz: the Tin Man wanted a heart, the Scarecrow wanted a brain, and the Lion wanted courage. For those things, they all humbly asked. Realdonaldrump is too big to ask for "real" help; he covers for his shortcomings with bombast while he beats his chest. Hence, his whacky cabinet picks. It's a narcissistic, vicious cycle. We are doomed with him at the helm as he punches and counter-punches like a boxer drunk on himself.
In conclusion, building walls and mass deportations will only exacerbate the larger immigration issue and cause socio-economic upheaval, destroy families and feed fear...a fear we've worked hard to overcome.
Beatings one's chest feels good (in therapy) but in the real world it may give the other apes pause to revert to not long forgotten ape ways, sneak up behind you, lop off your head, then roll it down the bloody steps or, as the case might be, catapult it over the wall.
