1. You have a healthy contempt for artificial boundaries.
There’s some truth to the saying that good fences make good neighbors: it’s good to know where you stop and the person next to you begins. But a good global citizen knows that these artificial boundaries are, at the end of the day, artificial, and as a result, can easily be torn down when they wear out their use. While this can refer to national borders (some of which are still pretty damn useful), it can also refer to divides between race, class, nationality, gender, sexual orientation, and even to species. Global citizens know that, at our cores, we are one.
