An analysis of nationalism in a specific country in the past and today

An analysis of nationalism in a specific country in the past and today. Has nationalism in this country changed over the years and is it for better or worse? Why?

 

 

          Has nationalism in Russia changed over the years and is it for better or worse? The answer to this question is not simple. Besides, the theme is too actual for my family. I will try to compare nationalism in Russia nowadays and at the time of the Soviet Union.

          I' ll begin to…

#essaycontest2016;

The broad definition of Nationalism states that it is a “Feeling that people have of being loyal to and proud of their country often with the belief that it is better and more important than other countries.” It is somewhat different from patriotism. Patriotism emphasizes strong feelings for one’s country, whereas nationalism often implies an attitude of superiority. The former is an important constituent for the development of a nation; however the latter in excess often leads to conflict with… Continue

Nationalisms: Constructive and Destructive

Upon the conclusion of the Cold War, many professionals and theorists in the realms of international affairs and political science became dedicated to the notion that history, in the Hegelian, dialectic sense, had “ended”.  The ideological struggle between liberal capitalism and Marxism having been resolved in favour of the former, the tasks left for thinkers and policymakers would be mainly managerial, as expansion of liberal democratic principles of governance to all corners of the world…

Food Security and Poverty in Rural and Urban Afghanistan: Post 9/11

Introduction

Well, whiles I am a beggar, I will rail

And say there is no sin but to be rich;

And being rich, my virtue then shall be,

To say there is no vice but beggary.

 

-          Shakespeare, King John[1]

 

“For thirty years I have run my business on one principle”, remarked the banker in negotiation with Goetz, in Sartre’s Devil and the Good Lord, “that self-interest…

Myanmar and the Plight of the Rohingya, with Elliott Prasse-Freeman

The Rohingya are seen as fundamentally 'other,' says Prasse-Freeman. "Hence, even if they have formal citizenship, they wouldn't really be accepted as citizens, as full members of the polity." Could Aung San Suu Kyi have done more to prevent the persecution? How important was the hate speech on Facebook? How can the situation be resolved? Don't miss this informative and troubling conversation.

Global Ethics Weekly: The Right to Science, with Helle Porsdam

The right to benefit from scientific progress was enshrined in the United Nations' 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights, explains University of Copenhagen's Professor Helle Porsdam. Unfortunately, many people, including scientists and policymakers, don't know much about it. How was the right to science developed? What are examples? And, with an anti-science administration in the White House today, what are the contentious issues?

Internet Trolls in the U.S. and Mexico, with Saiph Savage

Professor Saiph Savage is an activist scholar and technology expert who is using large-scale data to study the sophisticated ways in which trolls target certain groups and bombard them with misinformation--for example U.S. Latinos were targeted in the 2018 midterm elections as were Mexicans in their 2018 presidential election. But her message is one of hope. In Mexico, citizens eventually saw through misinformation campaigns and others can too.
