I think we all can relate to Burke Devore, but he picked the wrong targets. In the old days, if the banks or railroads treated people wrong, they robbed them. One of the favorite activities of Mexican drug gangs, is kidnapping wealthy people. Open borders will allow them to expand their activities to the US. However, our globalized economy is collapsing because the middle-class wages that supported the world markets have disappeared, and with them goes the wealth they produced. Even kidnapping will be less lucrative because wealth is being destroyed. The destruction of wealth has only just begun, but no rising sun in sight!
