Citizen of the World

Apparently, Diogenes the Cynic was the first person to claim global citizenship – he was the first cosmopolitan, and since then lots of people have jumped on the bandwagon. Until recently, it was a good thing to be a citizen of the world – it meant you cared about people outside your own circle of relations, friends, fellow nationals, and that you cared about issues like global justice and climate change. However, it is now officially a BAD THING to be a citizen of the world. It means that you lack an identity. But identity means being the same as someone else.

Enjoy the track.
