Skip the Neighbors

November 30th, 2008

skip-the-neighbourThe history of the Balkans, as well as the history of all other places, suggests a mistrust of the neighbours. Keep the fence in-between so that everyone respects the boundaries, especially if the fence has to be crossed for trespassing. History teaches that that the neighbours of your neighbours are becoming your best friends. That is probably because the neighbours of the neighbours are not sharing the same fence but the common neighbouring thereat. A common fence makes opponents and a common threat makes friends. Finding friends, as history teaches, mean skipping the neighbours.
