Abstract

Meaning-making, distinction-making, and value-adding are the three processes for an individual’s construction of borders in mind and in society. Once these borders are established, those who have made them distinct and added-value to them then engage in the process of “border control”, or management, negoti¬ation, and navigation of the meaningful, distinct, value-able border. Conversely, the borders that are constructed and imposed on the wider world engage in a process of regulating individual minds and larger societies – in fact they become naturalized givens in the wider world and regulate the same people that con¬structed them (and have forgotten they constructed them, made them meaning¬ful, made them distinct, and added value to these distinctions).
