EXPOSING THE BIAS ww ESSAYS

Mutually Beneficial?

If we don’t respect and maintain borders, then how do we apply for and disperse social benefits? The world needs to be geographically divided in order to execute/conduct the business of the people.

Take the numbers off the buildings and the street signs down – those are borders too, when you think about it.

In order to organize the facilitation of anything we need to categorize – that’s a border too.

Putting things in boxes creates borders between what’s in the boxes.

Separation of powers – those are borders.

The concept of borderline intrigues the psyche because of the innate constraints it creates – a line in the sand, the red line, take one more step. Remove the borders and freedom ensues. Or so we think, until we cross that line or take that step only to find chaos where we sought tranquility.

It is our nature to count, divide, multiply, subtract, add everything that can be counted. It’s utilitarian by design. It’s efficient. It’s productive. It eases the burdens of cumbersome activities that borders naturally streamline. Counting creates borders.

People should be able to travel where they want, live wherever they choose, and work where there is work available and they meet the qualifications.

But living in a country where you don’t speak the language, thus can’t get a job, thus can’t support your family is reckless and endangers the security of everybody else in that country.

Depending solely on a support network of similarly situated individuals, relying on jobs where bosses who speak the same language assign jobs makes one indebted to those who pull the strings to keep these persons employed. This condition of total dependency created by one’s inability to speak the common language of the country turns the hiring of these persons into a slave-master system of employment.

That the master shares the same ethnicity doesn’t negate the slave-master relationship.

Slave-master employment relationships are designated by borders too. In the beginning, what appears mutually beneficial, becomes grossly disparate as time goes on. Benefits to one compared to benefits to the other produce a condition where the master thrives while the slave merely survives.

Short term this condition may be seen as a necessary or tolerable step toward eventually gaining greater control and freedom. Too often though people get stuck where they’re dropped, having neither the time nor the will to do what it takes to separate and rise from the group. These people end up being enslaved forever. Who can learn a language and become educated when they’re working twelve hours a day in a foreign country picking fruit, then sending most of their money back to their country of origin?

This slave-master employment system isn’t created by the USA government; it’s created for and by their own people for the purpose of settling in a foreign land.

Eventually it takes a social movement to set them free, but even then unless extraordinary measures, that no one can afford, are taken to assimilate them, then the same system of master-slave starts all over again, this time above ground rather than underground.
