What we have is a bunch of sclerotic, dying institutions and systems resisting anything and everything that threatens to disrupt the status quo. One way to understand the rising sense of disintegration and discord around the globe is to realize that those systems that aren't busy being born are busy dying--and virtually none of our primary systems are busy being born.The line is from Bob Dylan's song It’s Alright, Ma (I’m Only Bleeding): "he not busy being born is busy dying."What does busy being born mean? For both individuals and systems, it means adapting by advancing understanding, flexibility and capabilities.Systems that are dying are rigid, mal-adapted, resistant to change, obsessed with obscuring their failure and retaining their grip on cronyist privilege and

President Trump's crackdown in illegal immigration means more wall-building, more ICE agents, and a notably bigger budget for the border patrol program. As the following chart shows, that would be an extreme departure from the stagnant spending on our nation's borders by President Obama. As Statista's Dyfed Loesche notes, the overall enacted budget for the U.S. Border Patrol program has risen steadily since the 1990s... until 2011 - when President Obama appeared to kill any further
