However, despite the frequency with which they were paired, scholars have tended to ignore these connections, for there is an unwritten assumption that the so called white Highlanders could not possibly have been paired, in any serious way, with dark Indians of the subcontinent. Yet it is increasingly clear that such conceptual binaries are inadequate to understand the ideologies and institutions of imperial social formations. This thesis undertakes above all, to demonstrate that the historically specific context in which martial race ideology became dominant was neither a metropolitan nor an imperial matter but one that transcended both. I argue that understanding martial race ideology requires an approach that goes beyond national history, that seeks to complicate divisions between home and empire, and between European self and foreign other. For the racial and gendered conceptions that underlined the ideology of martial races, were framed and produced in relation to conditions in Britain, India and even outside the Empire altogether.
Huntington’s postulate references the future of civilization. It is important to note that he sees our current nation-state model as enduring, yet The United States of America appears to be on a collision course with“the rest” of the civilizations in the non-westernized world. Though there is some evidence to support the diminishing role of the U.S. in Carroll Quigley’s model, loss of power is certainly not an inevitability. Huntington calls for cooperation and coexistence between the major world civilizations as a way to stem future culturally based conflict. While the West must appreciate it’s own unique culture, Samuel calls an imposition of those values, “in the emerging world of ethnic conflict and civilizational clash, Western : belief in the universality of Western culture suffers three problems: it is false; it is immoral; and it is dangerous” (Huntington 1996: 21).
We can build diplomatic relations of equal status with any big or small country which was previously in Ottoman lands. This is what modern diplomacy requires." There is an important point about AKP which is the intolerance of discrimination against religious people, they are trying to solve problems about Kurds. To conclude with, we cannot call Turkish nationalism as an ethnic nationalism because there is no commitment to one group there is commitment to a state, so I think we can define Turkish nationalism as a “civic
Also, the outside world and media are both very judgmental, and would have a great effect on how people feel about others. In a society where every person is encouraged to have their own ideas and belief system, important decisions of the community might never be made, because people might not be able to agree. The idea of a transcendentalist society seems perfect and just what the world needs, it would never survive because one
4.3.2 Nationalism and Multilateralism Nationalism is known as an ideology that individual 's loyalty to the nation, surpassing other individual or group interest. This action could be achieved either through economic, social, or political action. The sense of nationalism generally was aimed to maintained national self-determination and to maintain a nation need to have national identity, something that distinguish them from other nation. That is why national flags, anthem, symbol, language, and myth are very important for nationalism. Nationalism itself is a modern movement, in which only when the end of the 18th century come that the sentiment of people toward their nation was recognized.

Ever since the Romantic era at least, the nation has become the dominant form of political identification as nationalist movements around the world - at first in Europe and then beyond - have progressively liberated indigenous populations from imperialist subjugation. Correspondingly, the nation-state has “commanded the attention of the historian through most of the modern age” and still today, “history continues to be written in national languages for national audiences” (Iggers and Wang, 2008: 366-67). Similar is true of International Relations (IR), where the nation-state remains the cornerstone of realist theory and where much attention is given to the problem of “failed states” and the need for “nation building” in areas of the world such as Afghanistan and Somalia.
While analysing the causes of WW1 (also known as the Great War) and WW2 (known as the Second World War). Three causes did stand out, those three causes were applicable to WW1 and WW2, they differed in certain ways but were all really important and maybe the most important ones. The first one would be Nationalism. Nationalism would be define as the feeling of sharing the same cultural heritage , the same language, sometimes the same religion and the same historical past, resulting in a great pride. Extreme nationalism can push people to believe they are the only ones with the right to live in a certain territory.
Ahmer (2014) in his article The myth of Pakistani nationalism states that nationalism can play positive as well as the negative role like it can unite or divide a country. When Pakistan appeared on the world map as an autonomous and sovereign state, it was regarded as a distinctive country for the reason that it has diverse cultural, religious and geological distinctiveness. But, Pakistan turned out to be the first post-colonial state to have fragmented on the source of ethnic nationalism. As Muslims comprise an irresistible majority of the population of Pakistan, consequently, Islam cannot be in jeopardy or is in menace, whereas, Pakistan 's endurance is at risk because of massive internal and external fear. As a result, what is necessary in order to save Pakistan from more insecurity and decomposition of its sovereignty is the endorsement and encouragement of Pakistani nationalism by having focal point on three chief things.
They are those who don’t allow their social, political, and religious affiliations to sear their conscience and injure their understanding. The love for their country has consumed them to the extent that they defend her against any government. They share the view of Edward Abbey who stated that “A patriot must be ready to defend his country against his government” The nation thinkers understand that they succeed when the nation succeeds and fall when she falls. Those are the people who don’t have sycophancy, bootlicking, etc in their vocabulary .The most important thing about a patriot is that it could be anybody you or me if we change our thinking and devote our energies and resources in fighting the true fight for the
