“One embarked and alighted without questioning or being questioned,
one did not have to fill out a single one of the many papers which are
required today. The frontiers which, with their customs officers, police
and militia, have become wire barriers thanks to the pathological suspicion
of everybody against everybody else [...] Nationalism emerged
to agitate the world only after the war, and the first visible phenomenon
which this intellectual epidemic of our century bought about was
xenophobia; morbid dislike of the foreigner, or at least fear of the foreigner.
The world was on the defensive against strangers, everywhere
they got short shrift.”
