Ideas evolve through debate and dissent, they are like tributaries and distributaries which is why they should be allowed to flow freely. The only things that travel faster than ideas are light and time. Ideas diffuse, they rise independently, they travel, humans can only be carriers of ideas and no political border, no geographical boundary and definitely, no wall can stop them from spreading.
