Ask any historian with a clue in case of doubt. You think I just hacked history.com to make you brick wallers look like morons or what? How's your infrastructure doing btw?

No, I see no parallels. I see reaching and grasping for straws.

Maybe change your glasses? It was your idea to spin this wall of a thread regardless of the contradicting historical context, wasn't it?

Oh, so witty! It's the best tactic to shy away from factual debates once someone calls out your bollocks, right? You're pretty good with sophistry, I'll give you that.

I wasn’t aware that making specious arguments was “factual debate”. I guess you learn something new every day.

No worries, Hadrian! You'd have to realize your mistakes before you could learn a thing, and something tells me you would rather stick to your bricks.

Plucking quotes from irrelevant books and making historical comparisons between disparate empires and ages seems to me the mistake.

That or your historical introduction wasn't really worth anyone's time.

It shouldn't be so hard to find at least one big border wall project that actually worked. But even the wall in East Germany was a big fcking mistake, which led directly to the Perestroika and ultimately to the fall of the UdSSR.

Name one border wall that worked out like intended, just one?

You'd compare a wall designed to keep people from escaping to a wall designed to keep people from breaking in.


The Isreali/West Bank Barrier.

The Moroccan Western Sahara Wall

The Syria-Turkey Barrier

The Indian Line of Control Fencing

The Greek "Evros Fence"

Which one of these don't work?
