If we are to survive, our loyalties must be broadened further, to include the whole human community, the entire planet Earth.
Many of those who run the nations will find this idea unpleasant.

We will hear much about treason and disloyalty.
Rich nation-states will have to share their wealth with poor ones.
But the choice, as H. G. Wells once said in a different context, is clearly the universe or nothing.
