Sigh. Carol, you probably are correct that I coined the term "world citizenship." As I recall, my remark stemmed from your statement that you considered yourself a "citizen of the world." If I am incorrect, then I apologize.
I think I have made my position clear. I see nothing wrong with nationalism and it doesn't matter which country it applies to.
I am opposed to a "world government" and if one comes along, I hope it is long after I am gone.
I am not an ogre; I love people; I want nothing but good things for other people; I love children and pets, and I think I'll have chicken instead of steak, Bluejay. My doctor says it's better for me. After all, I must take as good care of myself as possible so that I do not die before my time. I do no want my good liberal friends on the Mudcat to be deprived of the pleasure of nitpicking everything I post. **BG**
