    Jones was escaping what he rightly saw as colonialism/imperialism/racism but got into a colonialist venture of his own in Patagonia in order to facilitate an escape. Or was he the equivalent of today’s economic migrant or political refugee who was merely seeking a new safe haven far away from his troubled land ? Is the new wave in Cymdeithas heading towards a similar interpretation of contemporary arrivals from other countries ? They may be welcoming right now but who know what the next fashionable groupthink spawn may contain. After all they have shown an ease with hatred of some of their fellow Cymry, so it’s a short step to hating people from other countries.
