Nationalism= a modern version of tribal loyalism.

You prefer "Internationalism" to Nationalism.

What works better; unity through a common heritage, or unity through destroying everyone else's heritage, including your own, for a utopian idealism?  Hint: America is an example for the latter.

Nationalism is a belief, creed or political ideology that involves an individual identifying with, or becoming attached to, one's nation. It involves national identity, by contrast with the related construct of patriotism. 

Nationalism is a way of thinking that says that every ethnic group of humans should be free to rule itself. Nationalists think that the best way to make this happen is for every ethnic group to have its own nation and society that they can rule without being controlled or oppressed by anybody else.

Nationalism is for the right-wing what socialism is for the left-wing. Socialists like Stalin, Ceausescu, and North Korean Kim Dynasty are nationalists also, but North Korea is in an extreme way.

Nationalism is not bad, it is bad only when it because radical like ultra-nationalism, fascism and national-socialism.

What you made here is NOT nationalism it is Chauvinism, chauvinism is an exaggerated patriotism and a belligerent belief in national superiority and glory, NOT nationalism.

USSR war nationialist, ever heard of Soviet Social Patriotism also know as Soviet Nationalism? 

During World War II, Soviet socialist patriotism and Russian nationalism merged portraying the war not just as a struggle between socialists versus fascism but more as a struggle for national survival. During the war, the interests of the Soviet Union and the Russian nation were presented as the same, and as a result Stalin's government embraced Russia's historical heroes and symbols

Late as fuck, don't even care.

Throughout this time machine of a thread, there seems to be a constant insinuation that diabolical figures such as "Hitler" were nationalists. Yes, of course his agenda preached some foundation ideals of the concept; yet his sect of thought was (obviously) National Socialism - an extreme version of fascism. A political contraption that centred around purely ethnic supremacy and imperialism.

As inkled towards by certain members of this conversation, nationalism at ground-work sentiment is an ideology that preaches the right to self-determination, independence and existence of every ethnicity and people. The incessant lambasting of any nationalist publicity is majorly due to this ridiculous remembrance of individuals such as Adolf Hitler who devolved far below the tendencies and integral beliefs of the nationalist mindset.

Of course, nationalist groups possess the usual scoundrels and other ne'er-do-wells; oft proudly sporting shaved scalps and boasting somewhat imbecilic rhetoric. Yet are the Left entirely devoid of this problem, hmm? If I recall correctly, I have spied many youths of Left wing street-protest groups possessing similar mental and behavioural deficiencies. The only difference is, the lovely Marxist media adores to display unto the public the oh so evil and RACIST nationalists :(

Oh and this talk of "Nationalism brainwashes the proletariat with fanciful spoutings and compels them to perform the dirty work", hah! Really? Drivelling on about a utopian world removed from the natural yearnings bestowed upon us from birth does not? The Left is a force built on the utilisation of indoctrination.

Faceless uniformity of the worker is a concept that appeals to the selfish underclass and the sentimentalist bourgeoisie; while a people united in a struggle, whether culturally, economically or otherwise is an outlook adaptable to any member of any nation.

Divisions are inert, both biologically and artificial. To sweep them away like a damn hippie makes you a dreamer.

I think you might mean 'inherent' rather than inert.

To think inert differences matter makes you an ignoramus.

Differences are differences, adaptations, adaptations. To sweep them aside for nothing more than some idealistic dream creates conflict, not peace. I've lived in a melting pot and it was nothing short of hell. You, I can wager, probably have not. Try it sometime.

Have you ever thought the reason it was "nothing short of hell" was because of you?
