Daniel Bell tells Executive Editor Edie Lush that many people are attached to their cities more than their countries. Think of New Yorkers, who identify more with New York than with the US with t-shirts that say "I heart NY". He also says that the rise of 'civicism' - Bell and his co-author's invented term for the rise of urban pride - can be seen from the US to Europe to China.

Bell also points out that Confucianism is experiencing a revival in China amongst some political reformers. Confucianism teaches that there is a duty to protect people who are voiceless, those future generations who will be affected by policies (like Climate Change) for example, and that liberal democracy lacks these characteristics.
