  • Nationalism is Everything

    Without nationalism a nation is just a zip code. A place without meaning where people do business and go about their day unconcerned with the fate of their neighbors or the shared fate of their nation. Who will die to defend a country they feel no love for or pride in? Who will work toward a common goal with neighbors you have no kinship with? A lack of nationalism will destroy a nation, and justifiably so, as it will most likely be replaced with a nation and people who are fundamentally concerned with their self preservation.

  • Competition Is the Root of Advancement.

    Capitalism works because when people have to compete to survive they rely on and develop their best attributes. The same goes for countries using nationalism. When they attempt to compete wit other countries not matter the motivation, and the there capable of putting up an economic fight, often many things about that country are improved. An example of this is ww2 america. In ww2 america started to compete with European nations for economic dominance, and it's success launched it to the forefront of world politics. Without nationalism, that never would have happened.

  • Words words words

    Nationalism is good because it helps people be united and instead of being loyal to a single person it's to a country and their ideals, and it brings people together united as one. Besides, it's being proud of who you are and your cultural identity and that is a good thing.

  • Too much bad but too little pathetic.

    Sure you get Nazi's and communists and America engaging in every damn war when you've got too much but that still isn't a breaking point for me, the people exist, endure and can change for the better over time. But if you have too little you get subservient states or eradicated nations. Just look at the Native Americans, they could have their own country if they had some nationalism pride and fear of their blood and existence disappearing. Don't expect it to happen though, they haven't had visionary leader since Tecumseh.

  • People working in synergy and proud of it

    It is normal for the people of a region to become identified with each other. Having access to the same resources, subject to similar problems, sometimes inter-cooperating to achieve common goals. In these conditions, synergy can be easily achieved in the completion of those goals, in the administration and distribution of resources, the defense vs other groups, and in the end, the growth and developement of that community. It is a universally accepted truth that the union of many individuals achieve a goal more easily than a single person. And what a better union can one get than that of people having same goals, similar values, same language, a common pride...
    When there is no notion of country, nor group, nor pride, nor identification with common values, you get among other things (like loss of resources and poor production of these) , a mass of individuals looking after their own good. A mass easy to break, easy to take advantage of. A sad example is Scotland. A land that for centuries was so divided, that every lord would look for his own benefit, even if it meant helping the king of England to crush their own people, only to obtain more english lands and rents.
    Only when the scots united in the past under the notion of a single country would they beat the english.
    I agree that there is no perfect human system or institution, but I think that nations and the nationalism are the best way to go. And I firmly believe, that the new individuals trying to immigrate into a country need to identify themselves first with the nation they are moving into. Learn and adopt their values, history and language. Is is always great when they can keep their own religion, and show and celebrare their culture too, but without forgetting they are no longer in their old country, and that they owe respect to the place that opened its arms to them. After all there is a reason why they left their old home in the first place. They are now depositaries of the pride and history of a nation. Why would a person leave a country to escape a social hell, then immigrate to another (better) country, and then try to make this new place the same hell he had to leave before.
    I would state that it is not ethical for a person or group to travel from country to country sucking its resources without working for the good of that nation. When a human being acts that way, he can be truly labeled a parasite

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • There's a Difference

    While some may argue that without nationalism countries are nothing. I would agree although if the word was patriotism. I personally believe that the difference between Nationalism and Patriotism is that Nationalism leads to people thinking they are better than other people just because they aren't from their country. Meanwhile Patriotism, I feel, Is supporting your country while not demeaning other people.

  • Nationalism is short sighted.

    In the short term, it can bring people together to overcome a problem or obstacle. But in the big picture, it is divisive and leads to posturing, friction, and war. Since there are those who want to create and maintain a war like posture for selfish benefit, nationalism become nothing more than a device. For those who believe competition is the cause of survival, they neglect that cooperation ultimately overcomes an obstacle or problem. Eventually someday, maybe, the world will come together and learn how to cooperate to insure human survival. Competition is great when it comes to games, one in which some man is making the rules, and winning is a prize. But in terms of survival, it's no game. As long a man continues to consider himself as competing to survive we will have petty animosity and war. Cooperation on Global Scale will be the only way to insure humanities survival.

  • Nationalism is neutral

    Nationalism can be used for bad or good. It can be use for bad, like, people become TOO nationalistic and slowly become facialists instead. Facialism is when someone says, "Oh, your not of my country, so you're scum." However, nationalism can also be used for good. It can boost people's morals or be used to reform a country or nation.

  • 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!
