Planetary chauvinism is a term thought to be coined by Isaac Asimov, though in an interview with Bill Boggs Asimov mentions that he heard it from Carl Sagan originally. It is a term to describe a commonly held belief that human society will always be planet-based (even if extended beyond Earth), and overlooks or ignores the potential benefits of space-based living. The counter-argument is that all the benefits of a planet can be achieved in space, usually by an O'Neill Cylinder type structure.
