  • 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.

  • A nation inspires

    Language and culture unites into a family-like web. A friendly and respectful Us and Them mindset brings about the best in me. When borders evaporate we lose the inspiring sounding board. Nationalism does not mean we have to go to war, but we certainly need to fight for what we love should we be invaded.

  • Yes nationalism will always be a good thing

    Because nationalism keeps race and heritage alive no matter what race you are from . Plus it encourages men to be men and women to be women. Also a nationalist society is impossible to break apart and the best thing is that no matter how superseded. A nationalist society will always rise up and defeat the enemy

  • Nationalism leads to a cohesive societies.

    Diversity in values and ideology never leads to a more cohesive group. Diversity in this way tends to lead to a weakened nation state. People are united through common identity. Nationalism is good because it provides a large deep rooted identity group that transcends racial, and many religious, differences. Nationalism also provides a geographical region that supports the values, ideology, and culture of the people that live there. If people from outside the nation loves the country and the people, then they could immigrate to that region and would happily assimilate to the nations values and culture. Citizens who live in a nation should have love for what that nation stands for and its people. If that doesn't happen, especially with groups that form that refuse to identify as part of the nation (Not to be confused with the nations government, the nation is comprised of the people and the government is meant to serve the people by protection. Therefore the people define the Nation.) then you have a "cancer" within the nation team that weakens and divides it.

  • 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

    George Orwell preached so. Wow 46 more words needed thats such a large requirement who would ever want to type on this website i think its a terrible system, just like nationalism. 18 more words to go hang with me one two three for five seex seven eight nine ten yas i did it gonna press submit now!

  • 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?
