Our society is more fragmented than we would like it to be. But Mr 'Humble', your society is 100 times MORE fragmented than ours! The most divisive thing that we could do would be to follow in your footsteps. And forget your Statue of Liberty ... it took a Paris-dwelling Frenchman to design and build it.
