  • 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's who you are

    Throughout history, nationalism has to gone too far e.g. The Nazis, China, Russia, which has ended up in mass killings and tyranny. However, through the darkness, their is a sense of identity. It's where you can say proudly and with pride that you are "British", or "German", or even "Argentinian", without someone branding you "a racist" or " an extremist" . Without Nationalism, there is no identity of people and without a people's identity, people will be lost and fade away. A cycle that has happend throughout history.

  • Yes nationalism is a good thing

    The core of nationalism is however universal to all nationalist movements. That core is one of shared national values and an identification with a single national identity. These values vary depending on the national identity represented they are usually apolitical in nature for example the values may be respect, human rights and so forth. As with any political ideology, nationalism must be considered in relation to some form of practical context. In an American context, nationalism would be restricted mainly to patriotism (such as the pledge of allegiance) whereas in a European context linguistic nationalism may be more prevalent.

    I regard nationalism as being a "minor" political ideology in that it seldom functions independently of other ideologies. What occurred in Nazi Germany was fascism, a derivative of nationalism. In fact scholars have argue that yes, fascism is founded on nationalism [1]. However, the African liberation movements were also founded on nationalist ideology, specifically on the principle of self-determination. If we were to completely remove the nation-state, the fundamentals of national identity then we would be left with a society of imbalance in which those with superior feelings of identity seek to dominate those of inferior positions. Only if all people have the amount of national conscience required to safeguard their independence will they ever be truly free from the oppression of one by another.

    People are naturally drawn to political activity and organisation; they are by their very nature political animals [2]. This is often emotional as people affiliate to parties and organisations with which they can relate. People want to aspire to something; they want to be part of something great. That greatness is often associated with a language group or a nationhood and should be encouraged as it develops consciousness, which leads to the enrichment of societies under single value systems. The recently passed Mr Nelson Mandela (a nationalist himself) emphasised the need for people to connect to their own (and one another"s) national and linguistic identities when he said, "If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language that goes to his heart."

    The point is that nationalism at its core is supportive of foundational principles, which define nationhood and much of modern culture. People want to be part of something and even the idea of "global citizenship" would mean that one would need to relate to a global nationhood.

  • 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 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?
