I don't entirely get the problem with nationalism though of that nationalism is built on a moral and legal foundation of individuality and self determination.
Certainly the "one world" concept has an ultimate goal of ****ing everyone.
And yes, I really enjoy consuming troll bait.
I believe its genetically hardcoded into people to fear and dislike people who dont look like them. Sure, we can rationally see that it shouldnt matter, but that diesnt mean there isnt a lttle voice in our head trying to tell us different.
And I'm as dismissive of the concept of a single world government as anyone, especially since the core emphasis by advocates seems to be to create more government, not liberty.
But why should i care if an Olympic medal winner is from my country rather than another, i care more about their effort, character, and the drama kf the competition than the winning "country".
Jingoist olympic announcers creep me out. Misplaced Nationalism helped bring Nazis to power in germany, Communists to power in Russia, China and North Korea. Its used by tyrants everywhere as a tool to maintain support and power over their peoples.
I love my country for only so long as it protects my liberties, no longer.
