Introduction
When Diogenes famously uttered that he was a citizen of the world, his lofty
ideals had only minor practical applications. Few citizens traveled to distant cities, much
less distant states or continents. Today, however, cosmopolitans, netizens, and global
citizen pilgrims may find solace not only through their imagined ideals, but also through
the knowledge that global communication and interaction is increasingly normal. Indeed,
the list of horrors advanced to disabuse the notion that globalization is inevitable often
only buttress the thesis.
Even Samuel Huntington’s famous Clash of Civilizations (1998), frequently cited
as a fundamental challenge to globalization, would not have had its as yet most notorious
manifestation of September 11, 2001 without relative ease of global communication and
transportation. The Bush administration’s subsequent military deployments in
Afghanistan, the Philippines, Iraq, and Georgia, among others, are also hard to imagine
sans GPS technology and rapid movement of goods and people. Finally, related protests
in Beijing, Cairo, Damascus, London, Islamabad, Moscow, Paris, Sao Paulo, and
Washington, D.C., would have been impossible without facile communication networks
and a global ethic that recognized a common human experience and worth.
