Nationalism

With the up-coming elections in Germany and in New Zealand, the migrant question has of course been a central question. With Merkel a shoo-in, New Zealand is looking more interesting.

The incumbent National Party is facing off with a resurgent Labour Party on September 23. But neither is likely to gather enough votes for a majority, leaving the populist, anti-immigration newcomer New Zealand First in the role of kingmaker, said analyst Hans Redeker and his Morgan Stanley team, in a research note.

In conjunction with their European descended brothers in Central Europe they too have a staunch stance against immigration to protect their countries.

 Since 2015, Orban has been vocal in resisting European Union demands that Eastern members share the burden of accepting refugees from Syria and elsewhere. An ardent nationalist, Orban justifies Hungary’s refusal, saying in July that Europe’s Christian identity is threatened and that globalists in the West want to create “a new mixed, Islamized Europe.”

With more and more nationalistic political operators, the question for most normies is going to be “Are the policies of nationalism good?” I hope to formulate an answer.

To begin we must first seek to define a nation. So according to dictionary.com, there are four definitions:

1. a large body of people, associated with a particular territory, that is sufficiently conscious of its unity to seek or to possess a government peculiarly its own:

The president spoke to the nation about the new tax.

2. the territory or country itself: the nations of Central America.

3. a member tribe of an American Indian confederation.
4. an aggregation of persons of the same ethnic family, often speaking the same language or cognate languages.
The definition we need to look at is the fourth one. In simple terms, a nation is a people with a common bond. So let’s move to nationalism and according to our friends over at dictionary.com: the pride in a nation. So nationalism is the pride in your people. My question to you is what is wrong with that? Pride in your identity is a good thing. We need it. Separate nations can’t be in the same country.
