To paraphrase FDR:
It seems to be unfortunately true that the epidemic of ethnonationalism is spreading. Ethnonationalism is a contagion, whether it be declared or undeclared. It can engulf states and peoples remote from the origin of the bigotry. When an epidemic of physical disease starts to spread, the community approves and joins in a quarantine of the patients in order to protect the health of the community against the spread of the disease.
