Similarly, there is a crucial, underlying difference among the deadly transfers between those that are unintentional, composed of either human accidents or acts of God, and those that are intentional, which humans knowingly initiate. When a particular ominous transnational flow is unintentional, the damage may be huge but it is hard to assign blame for the negative consequences. In contrast, when such a flow is intentional, the local, national, and international community is quick to highlight the perpetrators—assuming that the initiating parties can be identified (which is certainly not always the case with the deadly transfers)—and hold them directly responsible for any problems that ensue.

This setting involves not only widely discussed changes in system structures but also equally important, often ignored changes in individual attitudes. Comprehending the dire nature of this predicament is an essential prerequisite to any attempt to transform the chaotic anarchy of today’s global playground. INTRACTABLE CAUSES OF DEADLY TRANSFERS While deadly transfers have occurred across human societies for ages, the post–Cold War context has been uniquely conducive to a mushrooming of these ominous transnational flows.

Fueled by the pervasiveness of deadly transfers, this distrust deepens both among citizenry, as one’s own neighbor could be involved in these flows, and between citizens and their governments, as formal ruling bodies seem incapable of stopping these flows (and may, in the eyes of the populace, be tacitly involved as well). Many citizens may begin to question why they should support government when it cannot provide them with basic security, and (as alluded to earlier) there is little understanding of or sympathy toward the plight governments face in formulating effective policy to stop the deadly transfers.
