_(Opinion.)_
“Trump’s Border Obscenities Will Shame America for Decades” – wrote an opinion on [Bloomberg.com](https://www.bloomberg.com/opinion/articles/2019-07-03/trump-s-border-patrol-obscenities-will-shame-america-for-decades) yesterday. And then:

> We’ve now had several months of reports of inhumane and obscene conditions at the migrant detention camps managed by the Trump administration along the southern U.S. border with Mexico. The myriad, sordid details are already part of a larger stain on America’s collective ethos; they will disfigure the country’s reputation for generations to come.
# Migrating from tree to tree
I think fighting globalization is like fighting against gravity. In the short run, it can be a success, but in the long run, gravity always wins and pulls down all things which are heavier than air. Why do I think this? Because the history of humanity is the history of globalization. People have always wandered, even when they were semi-monkeys or primates in Africa.

At first, they jumped from tree to tree in the jungle or ran from tree group to tree group in the savannah. They were looking for the best, or most food, looking for a better place to drink or looking for safer hiding places. But it’s not just migration. Trade also began a long long time ago, even in the Stone Age. Humanoids are said to have traded not only with each other but even with the Neanderthal people, from a different race.
# Fishes and stags also do it
Trade has always brought a plus in their lives, and not just a better life, a larger selection of goods. He also gave them new learning, discoveries, knowledge, science.

But it’s not just about people and monkeys. Most of the animals seem to have encoded migration in their genes, to always look for a better place. The fish migrate to other reefs, the stag from one forest to the other forest, the rabbits, from field to field. Birds fly from tree to tree, or from rock to rock, fishing birds are looking for new and new currents, islands, or lakes, rivers. Migratory birds move to the south in every autumn to survive the winter. The history of living beings is the history of migrations.
# The error of the Chinese emperor
In the Middle Ages, a Chinese emperor burnt down, destroyed the entire Chinese fleet, and forbade all the new explorations. The Chinese empire closed the borders and blocked the eyesight. Instead, Europeans sailed out and discovered the world, invented globalization again and expanded it. They have developed a lot in the process, scientifically and economically. For this reason, they may have won out of the economic and scientific competition between cultures.

Today the world is so globalized that there are small countries such as Switzerland, Taiwan, South Korea, Iceland, which could hardly survive without trade. Other countries would hardly have any progress without new labor force, guest workers and immigrants. Europe has never lived in such high-level prosperity and peace like today since it has gradually established the European Union.
# Catholic devils
I think that none of the nations is lower class than the other. Does anyone remember that in the United States, at the end of the 19th century, Catholic Italians were the golliwogs? The nasty immigrants, the prototypes of criminals, the enemies? There were times when they were persecuted, imprisoned, abused and even lynched. But they also built the skyscrapers and many other things being simple workers. OK, many mafia bosses also were Italian. Later, from other nations.

Today, other nations give the bulk of migration, the majority of refugees. Yes, I know, migrants need to integrate, adapt to new communities. The Italians have succeeded in the US and so did hundreds of other nations. Others can succeed as well in the future.
# All walls fell
But migration or globalization, migration or world trade can’t be stopped, or only in the short term. The wall of Hadrian of Rome in England didn’t stop it either. The Great Wall of China didn’t, the Mongols conquered China. Nor did stop it the Berlin Wall for too long. It would be good to regulate, handle it humanely, and take advantage of its positive sides like the abundant workforce. For everyone to do well, to implement a win-win situation.
