A wall between the Western/non-Western - global apartheid or liberation?

As a skunk work, I must say, I've seen the following argument on right-wing sites from all persuations.
The argument goes as follows: the white majority countries must biuld a wall between the Western and post-colonial worlds. The EU, the US and Canada, and perhaps part of Australia must divide the world with physical walls.
Of course this will mean that oil will be repalced with local produce.
Illegal immigrants will be given one year to repatriate, and a lump sum for slavery reperations will be paid.
Next the walls will come up - no more exploitation either way - no more contact period.
If one peers over the "Western wall" ten years later, I wonder what one will find?

According to liberal views the peer over the wall should be a ecological garden.
For others it would be a Chinese Stalinist dictatorship, and according to racists it would look like a wall around Africa will be like a nuclear bomb just went off in suburbia.

But ahh - can suburbia exist without its "shadow" shanty towns?
Can branded consumerism exist without uneducated sweat-shops?
Can capitalism keep going without cheap labor?

A lot of people would say, wheresoever you go and you find blacks it looks dirty and shocking.
Others argue it is a class, not a race issue.
Several upper-income blacks now live here - and even they want to avoid a "black" neighborhood.
So what actually lies behind urban or rural decay?

Your post reminds me of Nicholas DeGenovas "the deportation regime"...

The wall in the minds that runs along the lines you described are already pretty firmly established; probably have been for a very long them.

How is this wall already made? I get some points here, but I'm not convinced it is there.
Yeah, a lot of Muslim countries make that wall conceptually - but otherwise, how is it made?
