A critical look at the challenges of Latin America Written by Paulo Suess
I found myself thinking of borders as more of “frameworks” rather than “walls”. As has been often said this weekend, we need some kinds of borders.... for identity, making our space... my space... your space.... helping to define things... But the purpose for borders, and often their expansion at the expense of others could also be out of fear, or greed, or arrogance.... it could be territorial, cultural, economic or on any level of life’s relationships. Borders as frameworks create order and space... Borders as walls create conflict. And the sad thing is that conflicts make money.
