Is Extreme Nationalism and Territorial Imperialism a Probabilistic Inevitability?

The role of language in cultural and political systems of belief is such that geographic tropes are anchors that provide internal narrative self-validation to such systems and their inhabitants. It doesn’t mean their assertions of territorial impropriety are valid, merely that such adversarial gambits are the perennially ascendant low-hanging fruit of belligerent nationalist pathologies everywhere and everywhen. Territorial arguments possess more possible microstates as intersections with and dependencies upon existing social, psychological and political artefacts of communication. Just human beings being human again, I’m sorry to say.
