    I think the nation-state as a unit of governance and identity has outlived its usefulness. Due to the nature of a globalized world, every country's political, economic, and cultural decisions are tied to that of another country's. So "nationalism" loses significance as an...

    Am I Extreme?

    I am white. I love myself and my people, and would hate to see a world where we didn't exist. The many wonderful cultures that we represent, and the many wonderful traditions that we have are important to me. I do not feel guilty for being born as I am, nor do I believe that...

    Country First.

    I dislike this saying.  Its the same reason I hate it when news reports tell us how many Americans died in some given terrorist attack.  It shouldn't be Country First it should be People First or Children First or something to that effect. Because someone lives in...

    Can Anyone Explain?

    Why do borders matter so much to some people that the instant you cross over this invisible line the people on the other side of it are somehow less human or less worthy than they are on their side of it? What is wrong with people's brains that they can formulate such ridiculous...

    I don't believe one country is better than another. Some countries are run by people who might, by certain definitions, be considered a bad person but that doesn't make every person in the country a bad person so why would that make the country bad and therefore your country...
