I take pride in being a(n) _________________ (insert name of nationality, religious / ethnic group, tribe, etc). I very much identify with other members of this group, and sometimes favor them as I interact with people in general.  I proudly display symbols of this affiliation and will fight or otherwise serve our cause in battles where our interests are at stake. I do not identify with any particular nationality, religious or ethnic group, but think of myself as a global citizen. (Note: In ethical decision-making considerations involving “people” and “place,” global citizens identify  all human beings with the former, and planet Earth with the latter. No one is excluded from this group’s ethical concern tent--everyone is inside, all are family.)
