I just want to know, why treat someone differently based on what side of a line they're born on? Isn't nationalism just the same kind of crap as religion, an us-versus-them game? Isn't it natural to think, or at least hope, it'll all die off one day, that we'll one day end up with some kind of government saner than our politicians, with their little fiefdoms scattered over the Earth's land masses? Where many people, really, can go live anywhere they want, if they're lucky enough to have a little money and some tolerance for upheaval?
