CGN Podcast: You Can Also Be a “Patriotic Earthling”

You can be patriotic while also contributing to the world as a whole, as long as you have an awareness of the reality faced by people outside of your own border. There is no reason why loving your country precludes loving the Earth and it’s people. Abandon the oppositional mindset of mutual exclusivity. Individual nations can become a cohesive unit of cultural growth so that healthy national identity may eventually give way to a higher scale order of global unity. You have to start where you are. Any attempt to “rush” humanity in to a globalized society without tending to the psychological roots of cultural identity will only result in more civil unrest.
