Here is what it means. Let's say that you have P(A|B)\le \alpha for every B. Then, regardless of what the probability distribution of B, it will be true that P(A)\le \alpha since we can multiply both sides of P(A|B)\le \alpha by P(B) and integrate B out.
Where everyone thinks alike, no one thinks very much
