Nationalism: It's Just Not That Simple.

Stepping out of Shinjuku Station, you enter into an ordered chaos that is utterly overwhelming.  Voices call out from billboards selling services and products; people swarm about in a frenzy that seems choreographed from the lack of accidents; all with a sheer volume that inspires sensory overload, blurring the mind to everything else.

The organized chaos is even more frenzied as campaigning politicians blare their platforms from loudspeaker equipped vans driving along the streets…

Is nationalism an asset or hindrance in today's globalized world?

“The morning bell has rung, A new dawn has risen

Let us all get up and recreate our village”

Remove the thatched houses, broaden the road,

Trim a verdant hill

Let us all fight and work with iron will, rebuild our fatherland

Our liveable village, we create it ourselves”

Nationalism: Globalization's Perfect Complement

Without a doubt, nationalism is an asset in today’s globalized world.

Economic nationalism, and not any other form of…

Reality Check on the dream of one cohesive, globalized society

Globalization, its reach, and its implications are favorite topics in today’s world. This makes sense; consider the number of international organizations (the UN, ICC…), the international trade agreements (WTO, NAFTA…), and social media and the links it has created and strengthened in international society.

Tyler P. Yates

Graduate Student

University of North Texas

 

            As we enter 2017, leaving behind a year that has seen near exponential growth and aroused vigor in nationalist movements worldwide, scholars again find themselves wading into the conceptual muddle of nationalism.

On Nationalism

Noah Tavares

Student - Highschool

Imagine only having an allegiance to your family. Imagine a world without political entities. Imagine the violence, the crime and the absolute disregard for human life. Would you enjoy breathing the air of that world?

 

My answer is no. Community could possibly be the most important hallmark of humanity. Not only does community give a sense of being, but a sense belonging. This very sense of…

In order to understand the effects of nationalism on today’s globalized world, we should first look to the past.
