  • It creates unity

    It makes you all feel like 1 and the same and puts aside your differences. It makes you all meet on the same side and side. Also if a country is to be invaded then the nationalism makes you untite against the common threat that needs to be defeated. So yes its good

  • All Politics are local

    Diversity within a country is a cancer. Celebrating and emphasizing the differences among us is as productive as self abusers cutting themselves. Instead, emphasis should be on what unites us, and for newcomers, adapting to it. If you don't want to adapt to that model, find another country. Nationalism allows a country strength thru such unity.

  • Nationalism is the foundation of democracy and modern world

    In order to understand Nationalism, it is essential to understand the history and true political and philosophical concept of Nationalism.

    In the past, the concept of authority was based on the divine right to rule. King ruled in the name of God, after the fall of Roman Empire, Chruch took over the whole Europe as the political authority. Chruch dictated policies, they influenced decision makers, even strong Monarchs needed Chruch's approval to rule the masses. Everything changed during French revolution and Enlightenment when intellects and philosophers challenged the concept of divine rights of kings to rule. They argued that state should be secular and the basis of authority derives from the will of the people. Nations should be able to form and establish their own authorities and monarchs cannot rule the population in the name of God. This very concept founded the Nationalism, Americans fought against British Empire, French people abolished their monarchy. European continent was transformed into nation-states. All major nations got their own states, their own governments. Nationalism was always a good thing and it is a good thing now. People who try to portray Hitler's fascism as Nationalism does not understand the history and true philosophy of nationalism. The concept of democracy itself emerged from nationalism because there can not be a democracy if there is no nation-state. How can someone implement the democratic will of the people, if in the first place someone doesn't accept the concept that authority derives from people's will and consent?

  • Nationalism is not how it is portrayed.

    Nationalism is not Militarism or Racism or Traditionalism, It is a separate ideology. Nationalism revolves around love for ones country, and your country being your number one priority. It is an attitude that has been adopted by some people who are evil but also by people who are loving and also just love their country. It doesn't require destruction of what's different just the betterment and preservation of your country.

  • Nationalism unites and sets apart divides.

    Nationalism promotes a common identity among the people of a nation, which ties them to the land. In many countries that have rejected nationalism, like Canada or countries in the EU, there are many divides along ethnic and cultural lines. Many immigrants in those countries have little understanding of the native language there or even care about the nation. They have much more feelings towards their homelands. Nationalism, however, places everyone into the same group, so whether you are new to the country or have a deep rooted ancestry, you are all members of one culture, one nation, and one identity.

  • Red Robin yum

    Red Robin is delicious and so isn't nationalism. My g why u alway goin to Red Robin. It's so delicious and I'd eat all day thier and enjoy it with all my heart. It my culture, nationalism is great and let's me believe in my Red Robin culture and great.

  • Yes it is.

    Without nationalism countries fall apart because the people do not view each other as one, like the Austro Hungarian Empire, where the many nationalities did not feel as if they were all one empire. They felt as if they were only Chzecks or only Poles, this resulted in the seperation of the empire after world war 1. On top of this, Germany and Italy would never have united and become a country in the first place if the people did not feel nationalistic as a German or an Italian. In fact many German and Italian states may have become part of France and there might still be a country called Prussia and the Kingdom of Sicily today if it was not for nationalism.

  • Nationalism will save the west.

    My argument is that nationalism is the answer to multiculturalism which promotes maintaining immigrant culture and thus dilutes national identity in the host country. Mass immigration and multiculturalism is a toxic mix that dilutes national identity and prevents assimilation, ofcourse if you keep immigration low enough you will see assimilation because humans are tribal animals, we also need to stop islamic immigration because they will never assimilate. The global elites are using mass immigration to dilute national identity so they can assimilate us into world government, this would destroy european culture and would leave us under a global dictatorship.

  • It makes you think you are better than others and hate people that arent from your country

    I think that a lot of time it makes people hate other nationalities. Yes, its a very good to be proud of your own country, but i feel that often it creates more hate in the world which isnt a good thing. Please tell me what you guys think, thanks!

  • Nationalism is not only bad it's absurd.

    Nationalism like communism is a good ideal on paper but it never works as it intends to in actual. It also sets limitation of boundary in people's minds. Imagine…

    A world where nations are not defined by their geographical borders. Rivers are bodies of running water rather than mystical devices of political separation; landmarks do not signify where “our stuff” ends and “your stuff” begins. People can cross such and such mountain or sea without their change in location entailing political offense. People are not stigmatized for being born in a particular place, but are welcomed as participants in said place’s culture. Now pause for a second. What is the difference between the world you are imagining and our actual one?

    The difference has nothing to do with what is actually there in the world. We are the ones that have made up borders and everything they connote; we are the ones who protect ourselves from the horrors of the far away by drawing little lines on our maps. We need to understand and be aware of this fact.

  • Nationalism has leads to bloodshed, and discord.

    Even though nationalism may start off with the hopes of improving lifestyles and working for the good of the people, it always seems to end in calamity and/or carnage and is seen as mostly negative throughout the history of humanity.  Considering the reasons behind the commencement of World War I, Serbian nationalism was a major factor.  The assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, heir to the Austrian throne, constituted as the kindle that started World War I. Nationalism also played a part in starting World War II.  Germany, Italy, and Japan sought the method of expansionism to increase their land mass and gain resources and market. They were working for the good of their countries, yet this seemingly harmless behaviour set the stage for World War II.   The French Revolution which was a vivid demonstration of nationalism in France,  caused  the Reign of Terror. This perspective should be embraced because in these examples given from history, nationalism has led to bloodshed, and discord.

  • Nationalism is tempered self-decption/inception/sean

  • Nationalism causes people's pride to develop into feelings of a master race leading to devastating events like war.

    When diverse people are forced together, their identity is lost, along with their culture. The people do not assimilate into a melting pot, even though they cannot remain an inconsistent salad bowl. The result is usually a sloppy, weak patch-work quilt, made from scraps, but inevitably falls apart after too much abuse. Sometimes people even lose their Natural Rights to life, liberty, and property (John Locke) because the general will may contradict the desires and rights of the minority, threatening the stability of the states with rising tensions. As the region becomes increasingly strained for unity, people become defensive, either of their origin or the identity of their new homeland. This leads to outbreaks which can spiral into full-fledged warfare, since the newly developed feelings of unity enacts a role of self-protection. Examples of these outbreaks are the Greek War of Independence (1821–28), WWI, and WWII. As the unrest unfold, a feeling of superiority emerges, sprouting racism which develops among the people. These people are not evil; they are acting in the most primal way - self-preservation before all else. They are only trying to form an identity, since they have been thrust through drastic changes, striping the population of everything they knew, and now it is time to strengthen their new home. Is there another option?
