A CITIZEN OF THE WORLD

I have no country to fight for; my country is the earth, and I am a citizen of the world.
- Eugene V. Debs.

Increasingly we will find that to solve the new problems the world faces, this will have to be our approach.

Hey oncloud9,
Thanks for your comment. I really liked this quote too so I had to use it.

In fact, some scholars in the field of international affairs already argue that a world government (in whatever form and whatever that means) is inevitable.

Exactly! In fact, thats the belief on which I've named my blog. I do believe we all should be world citizens first, whatever else afterwards.

It is my firm belief that every person on the planet is the brother/sister of every other person on it. It is awful that, having been already separated into different nations, we are now being divided within (the) nation(s) by evil forces such as the "Al-Qaeda", "Bajrang Dal", and "RSS", not to forget, the "BJP".
