Is Nationalism a religion?
The town of Derby Line Vermont straddles the border between the USA and Canada. Litterally, a house may have a kitchen in Canada and a bedroom in the USA. Citizenship in the USA is granted to anyone born in USA territory, or anyone born of a parent who is a citizen. So, I wonder if in Derby Line, it is popular to give your child dual citizenship by having the baby in the other country? Or not? Would such thinking be sacriligious to the religion of Nationalism? I understand the root causes of Nationalism, the common defense, culture, etc., but situations like Derby Line make one think about the rise of Nationalism and its impact on the world. In the words of Ghandi, without a National Spirit there can be no Nation.
