La raison des nations

I would select this paragraph as the"La raison des nations", not only is it clear and concise but it has a primal appeal; on a par with family/blood loyalty which requires no explanation, it is instinctive.
That's the way it is . We all distinguish between strange and familiar. A German I do not know is less strange to me than a Frenchman I do not know. The logical consequence is an unequal treatment. No help are fine Sunday speeches from United Europe . And also to accuse xenophobia does not help, because that is the nature of man.
