I Don't Believe In Nationalism

    I'm not attached to my own country.

    I'm actually a stranger to my own country although I was born here, I don't look like a local nor think like a local. The Filipino mentality does not appeal to me, I've lived in Rotterdam for years and spent my 5 years living a nomadic life travelling and living elsewhere...

    God Bless The Universe And All Its Extra Dimensions, Including The Possible Infinite Multiverses

    I am offended when I hear someone say "God bless America." Why should God only bless America? Does that imply that it's okay for God to neglect the other countries? What a bunch of selfish, narrow-minded peons they are. You disappoint, or even anger, God when you forget to ask...

    I'm for our planet. Not a single country.

    I don't care what skin colour or religion you have. We're built from the same blueprint. Black, white, pink, yellow, Muslim, Christian, Buddhist, atheist, teapot religion. You're all beautiful in some way. Same applies to animals ;) <3

    Representative Bodies Are Nonsensical

    Your country of origin says nothing about your productivity, mental capacity, or level of benevolence; thinking that the arbitrary spot on the map where you were born represents your values, therefore, is both nonsensical and dangerous. Germany does not represent Hitler; my...

    Am I Nationalistic?

    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...

    It's silly. I didn't choose to be a United

    States Citizen. I just am. Like every other person descended from people who boarded a ship from a certain continent a few centuries ago. There's nothing special about being American if you're a born citizen and your family has been here so long no one remembers being anywhere...

    Acknowledge The Fact That You Live Where You Do.

    But don't let it define you. I find that some people take nationalism to the point of being similar to sports teams; it's absolutely ridiculous. Being in America, you see nationalism everywhere as it's pretty much instilled in Americans in all aspects. It's understandable to...

    Nationalism Is A Very Effective Divide And Conquer Ploy.....

    I am proud to be Scottish,

    but Scottish is wholly my identity. My identity is comprised of many different aspects, such as my personality, morals and beliefs. I feel that in Scotland; patriotism is paving it's way to nationalism and nationalism is becoming full on racism. As Charles De Gaulle once said...
