They say “no man is an island” quoting a poem they haven’t even read or felt. Yet, isn’t it in the nature of our planet itself to spread out? It all began with Pangaea splitting into Gondwana and Laurasia, then them into the seven continents we know, then the borders arrived.
Separation to become a completely different being is in the very nature of habitable life. Why fight nature then? Why fight history? Just let it run its course.
If you ask me, every man is an island, drifting apart from places he can no longer call his own, and over time, drifting toward better, newer horizons, becoming something completely new and magnificent in the process.
