Cosmopolitanism: Cosmopolitanism in political theory is the view that all human beings are members of a single community, regardless of their nationality, ethnicity, or religion. Cosmopolitians believe that we have moral obligations to all human beings, not just our own compatriots, and that we should work to create a more just and equitable world for all.

Populism on Cosmopolitanism - Dictionary of Arguments

Krastev I 65
Cosmopolitanism/Populism/Krastev: PopulismVsCosmopolitanism: From the populist perspective, cosmopolitan distrust of ethnic bonds makes members of the vast ethnic majority in Hungary feel like foreigners in their own country. This is how universalism destroys solidarity. If everybody is your brother, then you are an only child. That is why Hungary’s reactionary nativists claim that no principled liberal can take a genuine interest in the fate of Hungarians living outside the country.
Krastev: This is how all anti-liberals talk. But Orbán’s recitation of the anti-liberal catechism also reflects some region-specific concerns. >Liberalism/Policy of Hungary.
