The Great Wall of China is a nice place to visit, but the monolithic fence never succeeded in keeping out the Mongols. Similarly, the Berlin Wall never quite worked out as its architects intended. Instead, the monumental eyesore is best remembered as a symbol of totalitarianism and despair.
Similarly, some people believe sinking billions of dollars into a fence along America’s southern border will stop migrant inflows from Mexico. However, the lessons of history are clear — grandiose (and expensive fences) are always trumped by the human imagination and the passion people have to explore, discover, and transcend their limitations.
The thinking man hates borders.
Why? Well, they stifle his spirit of adventure as they become impediments to his freedom. Hence, they become obstacles to be overcome or eliminated altogether.
The thinking man recognizes — as the ancient Greek philosopher Heraclitus did — that change and fluidity are characteristic of life. Consequently, stopping people at the border makes little sense to him. Commerce and trade all depend on the free flow of information, people, and products. Economic progress is made when trading partners reduce barriers rather than raise them.
Similarly, borders have the pernicious effect of underscoring our differences rather than highlighting our common humanity. All too often, they divide us into haves and have-nots, which exacerbates tensions between different segments of humanity.
Invariably, demagogues on both sides of a fence try to parlay fear of “the other” into political advantage.
Borders can be extremely expensive, but they are never cost-effective.
People build tunnels, they scale walls, and they bribe guards. The human ingenuity to surmount artificial boundaries is virtually limitless. The resources squandered to build barriers that don’t work would be so much better spent on more productive activities. Why not invest in science and art instead?
The thinking man recognizes that the same logic applies to undergarments too.
For example, Moseri’s premium organic Egyptian cotton undershirts employ a unique borderless design, which maximizes breathability, ease of movement, and comfort. As a result, they avoid unseemly ridges under your dress shirts, they never fray, and they always feel incredibly snug and cozy on your skin.
Moseri extends this borderless philosophy from product design to production.
For instance, Moseri recognizes that erecting barriers cannot protect humanity from pollution and the effects of substandard wages. Therefore, we make sure that our textile facilities adhere to the highest environmental and worker protection standards.
The thinking man chooses Moseri undergarments because he knows that freedom of movement—in the boardroom, bedroom, or while traveling abroad—is paramount.
