Nationalism appears to be an obsolete term in the new globalized world, and can be seen as a contradiction. I was thinking about this topic some years ago and the conclusion I had reached made was that the extreme nationalism is perhaps a hindrance to living life in peace, maybe it was hippie thinking for this times.
