I guess the real question is: why wouldn’t we? We are all earthlings. Earth is our home. Most of us struggle to understand the mores and beliefs of foreigners, due to a lack of understanding about their customs. We easily believe the faux news that is 24/7 on TV, with a hidden agenda and financed by private interest groups. Our text books are biased( mostly) and not objective or inclusive. Our world deifies celebrities and MBAs and rejects reasoning and inquiry.
We have become a world of followers and not leaders.
Travel is a way to disprove faux news, racism, and ignorance and promote greater knowledge and insight. This ignorance that we have on foreign countries and different religions is what is used to fuel wars and genocide ( remember the Native Americans folks??)
We have many forms of slavery in this world, but a lesser known one is the 9 to 5 rat race. People are judged by their ‘careers’ and not by who they are. In fact, frequently one’s career is considered who they are. How absurd is that?
Unless one is in love with one’s form of service to the world ( ie work) then one is enslaved, to a degree. Books such as 4 Hour Workweek provide ideas on how people can work for themselves, travel, and experience the flavors of the world firsthand. It incorporates also unschooling and homeschooling and gives bios of families who are traveling with their kids.
