The Problem Is You

I'm sitting here listening to the Sex Pistols' "Never Mind The Bollocks" written in 1977. They talk powerfully about the Berlin Wall and how England's dreaming.
At the same time I'm reading The Orstrayhun at http://theorstrahyun.blogspot.com/ and he's talking about the cage that's being constructed in downtown Sydney for the APEC conference where global leaders descend on downtown Sydney. There's a cage / fence being built throughout downtown Sydney as I type this. It's 5km long and reinforced with concrete barriers. Not pretty.
There was a good line in the movie version of The Handmaid's Tale about fences where Forest Whitaker asks "Are you trying to keep people out or keep people in?"
And IIIIIIIII wannnna baaaaaaaayyyyyy annnnaaaaarrrrrccchhaaayyyyyyyyyyyy!
