Boundaries are contacts as well as limits. At what point do the interests of our country meet and possibly conflict with those of other countries?

And are the interests in question those of the nation as a whole or merely those of a small group of people or even of a single person? Are such clashes anyway settled better by heat and conflict, or by a reasonable adjustment?
