I can see that you have never been to Berlin.

They have an entire museum dedicated to show the different ways people would get over, under and frequently through the wall. It will absolutely blow your mind.




I assume you're talking about the Checkpoint Charlie museum? They also show you how dangerous and complicated these escape plans were, and talk about how few people pulled them off.


Been there, seen it, had my mind blown (assume much?). I'm not saying there's such a thing as an impenetrable border fence, I'm just saying that you could do a lot better than is currently being done.

If there were ten thousand illegal immigrants in the US instead of ten million, it wouldn't have the deleterious effects on agricultural wages (and consequently job prospects for low-skilled US workers) that it has.

They took your job? Seriously? :-)

For the future, don't worry ... agriculture is exactly the kind of work that will be done by robots.

If it is not already, that's just because your unions are out of control, which made countries like Japan take the leadership in the robotics industry.
