QuestionWhy do we still believe more in nationality than in humanity? KatharinaD
Audrey Kitagawa: I don't know that we believe more in nationality than in humanity. I think we believe in the importance of humanity and we have a commitment to see that the human family is able to continue to live and prosper in ways that speak to being together more cooperatively, more lovingly, and nationality really speaks to our sense of particularized identity with a country. But I don't think we ever forget the fact that we belong to the human family while we may concurrently be citizens of any given country. I think when the human family and life itself on this planet is threatened that we come together in ways that ultimately transcend our nationalities and our citizenship and move into embracing ourselves as one human family. So I don't believe that we have a greater commitment to the idea of nationality more than our human family.
