"Travel Narrows the Mind"

Brian Feeney responds to Davros’ question —

[with the] increasing ease of communication and travel, the arrival of the EU, and changes in the structure of Capitalism have rendered parochial political philosophies such as Nationalism and Unionism redundant?

— with the above quote from Cicero.

    How can travel narrow the mind?

    SL,

    Have you ever met a travel from the USA? When we go abroad, we Americans return home even more narrow minded.

    Alan that’s because you all want to write auto-biograhies and when you visit an airport in a country, you think you’ve “done” that country 🙂

    Ah, Shannon, how lovely was her duty free.

    Why does it make them redundant?.This does not make sense. If that were the case there would be no national football teams, national airlines etc. Being a German is not the same as being British.

    The EU has bee around since the 1950s ,so get a grip Brian.
