Postcards from Abu Dis (12): Boundaries, Borders, and Walls

Roderick Long and I have been having an extended conversation about boundaries, borders, and walls. Feel free to check it out and add your own two cents, whether here or there.

While you’re at it, check out Roderick’s series on the ancient Greeks and their legacy for libertarianism (unrelated to the preceding), which starts with a post on Homer’s treatment of Achilles and militarism.

This will be the last of my postcards from Abu Dis (though not, of course, the last post on what I learned while in Abu Dis). I’ll be traveling a lot over the next week or so, and will probably have to neglect the blog a bit, but within a week or so, I’m hoping to blog from Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in southern South Dakota (“Postcards from Pine Ridge”), where I’ll be following up on (analogues of) some of the issues I pursued in Israel/Palestine. Background on Pine Ridge here and here.
