Accident of geography determines one’s condition in lifeI have recently been re-thinking about geography, in the context of patriotism and nationalism. There is perhaps no factor as important in determining one’s condition in life than the accident of where you are born. Having role models in your village or larger clan could also mitigate against the accident of geography. Globally this accident of geography was turned into various forms of nationalism, such as xenophobia, racism, tribalism and misogyny. Similarly, the accident of geography that leads to Muslims has now been turned into Islamophobia.
