The Russian invasion of Ukraine continues to falter, as Russian troops run low on everything.
Within the last two weeks Russia began conscripting civilians to join the military, in a desparate attempt to bolster troop numbers. This resulted in an immediate flood of Russian citizens attempting to escape the country, trying to avoid the draft. On the first night, airports were packed as every aircraft leaving Russia was sold out. Borders with neighbouring Finland and other Baltic countries had long queues of vehicle and foot traffic.
This brings to mind the questions of borders, and their benefits and drawbacks... The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.
Build The Wall!
There are some people in the USA that are very confusing. One minute they will be screaming that you can't trust the government, "Big Brother is out to get you". The next minute those same people are hollering "Build the wall!".
Borders are designed primarily to keep foreigners out. But those same walls can also be used to keep citizens in.
