Today, a cosmopolitan is referred to as "the citizen of the world," while the notion of cosmopolitanism is regarded as a legal and political framework that includes a vision of justice and ethical perfection – a type of identity chosen by the individual, Beros notes.Beros says cosmopolitans consider themselves unbound by any political community, and their loyalty is to a more universal community of all human beings.The societal identity ties the individual to a specific community, be it ethnic, religious, racial or cultural.However, Beros notes, it will also have to take into consideration the value of nationalism, "because in caring for the local we can learn much about caring for the global".By then we will be able to reconcile the concept of universal human identity with personal and societal identifies – and we can then be called true cosmopolitans.
