..Nationalism is just one of several means by which people end at war, but not why we do.
This.

There are those who will interpret nationalism as "superiority". Then those who will see nationalism as "caring for one's nation". I think when people debate, they need to make clear they are on the same page as per terminology. I do not, btw, know anyone who considers their nation to be superior to anybody else's. It seems definitely to be an unintelligent idea.

When 1914 and 1938 get mentioned, I always have a thought at the back of my head that links Merkel's open door policy with German dark history. A stigma to overcome.

Back to "make love, not war".
