Nationalism enabled nations to rise to unprecedented heights; in modern days, nationalism weighs down nations, dragging them into a pit of violence and economic decay. Nationalism in a globalized world can and will continue to exist, but its continued presence will only serve to hinder nations, causing unnecessary friction and hostility across the globe. However, As an international community, we must focus on peace and cooperation rather than competition and animosity; our greatest successes—economic, diplomatic, scientific, and otherwise—will be made possible when there will be a balanced approach towards Nationalism and Globalization. As Albert Einstein once argued, "nationalism is an infantile disease. It is the measles of mankind."
This was all over the world. Different countries were left out of the Versailles treaty and this made them feel that they never received an equal share of the treaty. This fact led to self interest in countries proving that they were the top leaders (Kershaw, 2000. Germany and some parts of Europe preached and advocated for Nationalism and Fascism with the party building its empire on extreme nationalism. Fascism kept on promising people the restoration of their economy and this was one of the factors that popularized Hitler, Mussolini and many others as nationalists with the mind of their countries looking forward to see great improvement in their economy.
It was the policies that attracted Americans, the decency and unity that you said you’d restore to this nation, and it was the betrayal of these ideas which gave us an actual outsider, and the person you failed to stop, Donald Trump. Your presidency was a wake-up call for America. You said that you’re now ready to chime in on our political system as a citizen, but I’m here to tell you, as someone who loves this country and will fight to the death to protect the Constitution that you referred to as “just a piece of parchment,” that America has awakened to your self-serving ideology and they’ve had enough of you. In ten days, a new President will take up residence in the White House and your eight years of unconstitutional executive orders that set violent criminals free, disastrous economic policies, and weak foreign polices will be erased. You will be the President remembered by those too young to know any better, not as a champion and protector of our rights and Constitution, but as a
The popular vote is very close to the American dream, where everybody matters and everybody is free. As there are problems with any way to elect a president, the popular vote is still not perfect. Diffen also stated “the impact of any state-level problems, such as fraud, is localized. No political party can commit large-scale fraud in any one state to dramatically influence an election.” Even if the popular vote is not perfect, many people prefer it over the Electoral College because they believe it better represents everybody. Melissa Kane, a Women’s March Connecticut organizer and Westport’s selectwoman said.
Tracking back the independence of the United States, we are impressed by First Shot at Lexington, the Boston Tea Party, and Great Victory in Saratoga, in which Americans demonstrated their persistent pursuit of freedom. This civil disobedience was victory and wonderful, laying a foundation for a newborn superpower. However, in modern society, civil disobedience is always inappropriate, regardless in a despotic country or a democratic country. In a despotic country, civil disobedience is ineffective. Since the dictatorship holds the most power and right, oppressing people to the largest extent without affording them a possible chance to revolt, it is not significant but merely risky for people to show any civil disobedience towards the tyranny.
The American Revolution is one of the most, if not the most, important wars the Americans have ever fought. This war meant independence for America or to be exploited for their resources by authoritative Britain. With the victory, the Americans earned their right to become their own independent and sovereign states. However, it is the war that was never truly won. Britain, in fact, lost the war more than the Americans won it.
These societies, which do differentiate in many ways, successes’ compare in that they are both able to complete the task of making everyone think they are equal. The term “successes” is used sparingly in this case, because one would not consider making humans equal in this way a “success.” In “Harrison Bergeron” the speaker states that every person who is above the average in beauty, intelligence, or strength has their own handicap to level out humankind. Harrison’s father even “had a little mental handicap radio in his ear” (1) to restrain his brain from thinking due to his above average intellect. The government went to extreme measures to make everyone the same, even “[requiring] by law to wear it at all times” (1). As with beauty and other ways people are required to
A tremendous amount of people wonder if America is trying to achieve world domination because of their involvement with the Middle East that is, however, a debatable and an unproven statement but it was especially true about a century ago during Theodore Roosevelt’s era. After the reparations done due to the civil war, Theodore Roosevelt strived to bring back American traditional values, that it, world expansion also known as manifest destiny. Theodore Roosevelt was an ingenious president whose aim was to make America an imperialistic nation and to colonise all the countries of the world. There is clear evidence that Roosevelt was trying to make America as a world superpower and he made it look like it was democracy even before Theodore Roosevelt’s
Without the world government, the world is anarchic, so arms race is unavoidable; every state wants to build up their military to show to the world how powerful they are. If a country is powerful in terms of military system, in accordance with its other state will also compete to strengthen up the defense and military system. So when the both state that strong in military forms alliances, they become powerful than
To a nationalist there is no country greater than his; his maximum loyalty is toward his racial or national group, overriding any other allegiance; he is ready to do whatever it takes, (however depraved, illegal, harsh it may be, even if it causes harm and pain to others) so long as it furthers his objectives. The patriot is more pragmatic, has a broader vision and knows that every nation is grand to its citizens. He does not believe his outclasses the others; he simply knows that there is a lot of good in his country and also plenty that can be changed for the better. Even as he takes pride in it he has the courage to criticize the wrongs he sees and always endeavors towards bringing about profitable change.
