    Right.
    Because all of the great unions are the same thing, uh-em.

    Nationalism is the most ridiculous ideology on the planet. Being proud because you were born on a piece of ground that happens to be under the jurisdicition of a government and a flag. Awesome. It's essentially the largest 'I'll take credit and be proud of something I had little, if anything, to do with' ideology. Nations exist to divide - bring on the EU and the AU.

    As I said before, the idea to have one common supranational organization with all the European states as members is great, but it is a serious problem that European insitutions loosing touch with its population.

    We can only vote the European parliament with its limited competences.
    Rather dead than red!

    So you can't be proud of your race, religion, or for that matter anything at all?

    Nations exist to unite, not divide.

    I don't see why you should be. You had very little do with it. Admiration and pride are two very different things.

    Nations have divided since the Westphalian soverignty system came into place. See wars and culturual superiority complex of people like Hitler. The very notion that we're arguing about nationality should be a hint that it doesn't always unite.
