Listened to Trump’s speech. It’s not going to work. It’s not possible to get anybody to see that the porous Southern border is not a huge benefit to humanity. People have convinced themselves that putting any obstacle on the path of human traffickers and cartels is morally wrong.
Trump wasn’t speaking to his supporters. He was speaking to people who have thrown their lot in with fluidity and won’t budge. But like I said in my MLA talk, the fluid elites refuse to see that fluidity isn’t that great for most. Because if they see it, they will have to face the possibility that fluidity might treat them cruelly, too. And that’s too scary.
