It's also one of the things that infuriates me about nationalistic jingoism. What, precisely, makes someone more deserving of our care and concern, just because they were born on the same patch of dirt we were?

What choice did they have about where they were born? What choice did we? Should we compound someone's suffering, just because the numbers came up "Afghanistan" rather than "Australia"?
