Standard lore holds that a consistent theory of quantum gravity cannot have exact global symmetries. In this talk, we will show how simple generalizations of this lore can be used to motivate a number of other well-supported "Swampland conjectures," thereby highlighting the importance of global symmetries for understanding universal features of quantum gravity.
