"Globalization has created almost limitless opportunities for nations to advance the good of their citizens. The opening of borders to trade and immigration, while not without controversy, allows for the rapid dissemination of information and the import/export of goods and people. Unfortunately, this is a double-edged sword, and more open policies have increased the potential for the spread of unwanted elements. In this age of open borders and swift travel, nations must be cognizant of the threats to their national security. These threats are not just from physical force, but other factors that can greatly effect the health and economy."
