Every border is a crime against humanity - Matador Network
NATIONALITY IS a strange thing. To think that one’s identity would be so thoroughly set by geography rather than self-determination may be a disquieting thought for some, but even the most rebellious would admit that love it or hate it, your country is a big part of who you are.
We’re not all the same, of course. There’s enough variety among the citizens of even the smallest of countries to keep things interesting. But there’s very little that cultural heritage doesn’t impact, with everything from accents to politics getting shaped by geography.
Which is why it’s so weird to think about how accidental it all is.
