Dusty Wright presents singer/songwriter Anaïs Mitchell at her farm in Vermont performing “Why We Build The Wall.” Dusty Wright’s One-Takes are a series of live songs by artists you know, should know, or will know very soon. Billy Bragg covered the song “Why We Build the Wall” by the songwriter named Anais Mitchell. Its such an awesome piece of writing. I have since searched for it. Its  beautifully performed. This lady is a great musician. This song, to me, is a narrative about how economic privilege keeps the haves and have-nots apart. It’s brilliantly astute once you understand a thing or two about what economic privilege actually does to the economic health of a society; as expressed in the line “Poverty is the Enemy”.
