I feel stupefied by the world’s vast complexities and sectional politics. Our Earth is a romantic location, with its deep seas, huge mountains, complex ecosystems, and diverse backgrounds. However, despite our shared unity, political identities and arbitrary borders continue to divide us.

As an artist, I have been fascinated by the idea that the Earth is our country, a home, and we are a family. This belief, inspired by the teachings of Socrates and the activism of Garry Davis, has led me to reject the narrow confines of sectional patriotism and embrace a more expansive understanding of our shared humanity.

For too long, we have allowed ourselves to be defined by the arbitrary lines drawn on maps, dividing us into nations and states. But these divisions are ultimately illusory; our brains are in control by the sectional political frameworks. They create a divide between us and the space we envision as the common land of the human family. I believe it’s time to rise above these boundaries and acknowledge the Earth as our single nation, thus embracing cosmopolitan perspectives entirely.

By doing this, we may start to heal the people, restore divisions that separate us, and cooperate to deal with the urgent issues our world is currently experiencing. We must collectively respond to laws, mental health crises, poverty, and climate change, recognizing our interconnectedness and shared responsibility to protect our planet and each other.

I hope that by embracing this vision of Earth as our home and recognizing ourselves as members of a single human family, we can build a more just, peaceful, and sustainable world for future generations. As Socrates once said, “I am not an Athenian or a Greek, but a citizen of the world.” It is time for us to embrace this truth and act accordingly.

In conclusion, let us reexamine our identities and allegiances and recognize that we are all part of a single human family. Together, we can create a better world for ourselves and the future generations.
