Humans are Parochial, Territorial and Feral

While the OP title is a gross generalization, it's sufficiently truthful for the purpose of this OP.

Humans have always fiercely guarded their borders/frontiers ... material and psychic.

Largely Western peoples have created and marketed worldwide the technologies and products ... especially in travel and communications ... that have increasingly facilitated the infiltration of their borders/frontiers ... both material and psychic ... by aliens.

Poetic justice? ... irony? ... law of unintentional consequences?

Two of the hottest topics in America and the EU:

1) Immigration

2) Control the narrative/story.

The source of creativity/innovation that lead to this situation is the same geography.Hmmm!
