Xenophobia On The Increase?

Jamie: I find it curious that in a world of increasing communication, where we know more about our neighbours now than we’ve ever done, where we should have a better understanding of those of different cultures and countries, the borders between us are closing. With all this knowledge at our finger-tips we seem to becoming more paranoid, more xenophobic and less trusting of our fellow human beings. Has it always been this way? The impression I get from speaking to old-time sailors is ‘no’.
