Not Happy, But....

Yeah, I was going to stick to posting happy Friday sorts of things today, but I have an exception! Or two :)

I have to share this awesome article on the fantasy world MEChA and their supporters live in. Since this is one of those pet topics of mine, I wanted to post about it today.

It's called, "MEChA Neverland: The Mythical History of the Southwest". Needless to say, go read it!

The thing that always struck me is, it's not the "land" they want. The land on one side of the fence can't differ that signifcantly from the land of the other side of the fence, at least for quite a few miles. It's the STUFF on the other side of the fence, the life, the potential. Stuff to which they are not legally entitled.
That's why it's called ILLEGAL immigrant.
As to the mythic wonderful paradise of a homeland, doesn't everywhere get idealized when you're not in it? Aren't the old days always better?
It's the whole grass is always greener syndrome taken to a ridiculous effort to acquire what they didn't work for away from those who did.
Don't get me started... stupid MEChA.
