The word “nationalist” conjures images of Nazi parades, while people often equate the term “globalist” with the wealthy elite. Neither is accurate, cautions global citizen Wanis Kabbaj, and the philosophies aren’t diametrically opposed. Globalists and nationalists have much in common: They love their country but also have compassion and empathy for people around the world. With national populism on the rise in the West, Kabbaj’s talk not only is timely but is a wake-up call to people on both sides of the debate.
