I must admit to an aspiration, I am looking for a global citizenry. I say aspiration because although I seek it, hope for it, pray for it, it may be many centuries (not-with-standing certain eschatologies) before we could begin to achieve that in non-political, religious, commercial ways. call me an idealist, but how wonderful it would be to wake up to a world without diminished tribalism and selfish individualism. Local identity is important in so much as we can have personal identity, transact culturally, build community etc., but if it becomes a tribalism we devolve to territorialism and become defensive and inwardly focussed. If we could look to a world community and be outwardly focussed I suspect we might just develop workable relationships fro all the key issues that affect every people group.
