Poll Context: In a thinly veiled attack on Donald Trump, Mark Zuckerberg lectured his audience on the need to build bridges instead of walls.
‘As I look around and I travel around the world, I’m starting to see people and nations turning inward, against this idea of a connected world and a global community,’ he said.
‘I hear fearful voices calling for building walls and distancing people they label as others. For blocking free expression, for slowing immigration, reducing trade, and in some cases around the world even cutting access to the internet.
This is however, in stark contrast to the way he runs his own property where he insures his privacy and prevents unwanted intrusions into his fenced off properties.
According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Zuckerberg secured ten separate building permits so that an estimated 40 to 50 contractors could build out everything from roof decks to a basement garage, featuring a car turntable so his fleet of vehicles “can get in and out more easily.” And the CEO—ever conscious of people’s privacy—had a massive mesh net fence erected around the property.
And it’s all being overseen by round-the-clock security.
“This is nothing short of a fortress,” said one homeowner, who asked not to be named to avoid a public kerfuffle with the new Facebook neighbors.
