The term "nation" has often been used as a synonym for "country", "state", or ethnic group" and, consequently, this uncritical usage has resulted in fierce disagreements on what constitutes national identity. "Nationalism" sometimes has a disturbing connotation. Nationalist feeling is often attached to a refusal of openness towards other peoples, and even a feeling of hatred towards them. But nationalism differs from similar notions such as patriotism, which might lead some of us to think that nationalism engenders some violence. We may not know exactly what... View more info
