Citizen of the World
Sheesh, check this out
:The elites in Washington, D.C., New York City and the United Nations seem to have plotted a journey to lead America into the New World Order where a cosmopolitan global citizen is no more connected to his country than a sociopath to his fellow man.
Take Strobe Talbott (and the sooner the better).
Mr. Talbott -- Brookings Institution president, old hand at the State Department and former editor at Time magazine -- was preparing America for its inevitable irrelevance with his "The Birth of the Global Nation" in 1992.
He said "nationhood as we know it will be obsolete; all states will recognize a single, global authority. A phrase briefly fashionable in the mid-20th century -- 'citizen of the world' -- will have assumed real meaning by the end of the 21st century. All countries are basically social arrangements, accommodations to changing circumstances."
