(p.141) Conclusion
Nomad Citizenship

Eugene W. Holland

University of Minnesota Press

The gist of the concept of nomad citizenship is redefining citizenship so that it includes and allows a wide range of allegiances to such groups, and more importantly, depriving the State of its claim to any master-allegiance. Nomadism, for one, indicates a geographical, spatial, and topographical deterritorialization of citizenship that is no longer bounded by State territory. Free-market communism, on the other hand, provides a citizenship of planetary scope manifested in the existence of nomad markets. Disengaged from capital control, nomad markets are able to link widely distributed groups and individuals in an inherent social bond that defines them as no more or less than temporary trading partners. Affirmative nomadology is primarily concerned with highlighting the existence of possible alternatives to capital and to the State, as well as conceptualizing the principles underlying these alternatives.
