Michael J. Totten, World Affairs Journal
I'd like to see a world where the majority of people everywhere have cosmopolitan values. That world might [be] less interesting to write about, but more pleasant to live in. We’re not there yet. And I'm not at all convinced we’re even heading in that direction. The cultural elites of the world are heading in that direction, for sure, but it’s not true of everyone everywhere.
