It seems that 'patriotism' - or a particular interpretation of it, i.e. economically favouring people who share the same nationality as yourself - is the only acceptable form of tribalism these days. If you happen to select your universe as the country you live in, then it is probably correct to want the best for your compatriots and mourn the loss of programming and factory jobs to China and India (unless you're on the next level and welcome their chance to move up the value chain.. but that's another topic). What if your universe is the world? Should you not rejoice that formerly poor people have a chance to be respected professionals in the global economy? I'm not really looking at the economic benefits or otherwise of outsourcing here - just the emotions. Any thoughts?
