Really interesting. And makes a good deal of sense.

But there's another point that shouldn't be missed: the "anywheres" really are *not* able to live anywhere; they are only comfortable in elitist enclaves, and wouldn't think of mixing with commoners, normals, and other "deplorables." Gated communities, high rent districts, expensive suburbs, universities and university towns, top-line resorts and hotels... These can be located anywhere, so these provincials imagine themselves "citizen of the world," but they can neither understand nor stomach 90% of the world.

Not only can they not stomach 90% of the world, but the baby-boomer American version of the "citizen of the world" cannot stomach the sports that those foreigners like, as I talked about in my book on soccer.
