It depends on what you mean with that. I think it's okay to like your own country and be happy with what you've. It's not wrong to like your own values, culture etc. Not all nationalism are violent, racist, xenophobic or hateful. As a leftie myself I think the left-side could get a more nuanced view on it. Media often write about the negative aspect of nationalism and rarely about all the positives. So I don't see the problem though.
I'm happy about it.
Liberal elites are throwing a strop because people don't agree with them any more.
And if that's not a good thing, then I don't know what is...
What do you mean "rise of nationalism"?
We invented nationalism and have always been nationalistic.
But the rise of populism and euroskeptism and the desire to go back to nation states rather than dictatorial super states is a good trend. People are waking up to what is going on and want their freedom back.
This rise of nationalism would never happen if it wasn't for the EU and the individual governments actively working against the interest of the people while at the same time elevating and protecting foreign invaders.
To be expected as a counter reaction against the extremism of the political left and liberals. Europeans everywhere are getting fed up with being ignored on their concerns about immigration, the decline of their countries, and culture clashes, as well as the neglegation of fighting terrorism occurring in many places. As well as being tired of the demonizing of their ethnicity. It's a radicalization transpiring, pushing formerly moderate people over the edge.
That's why Conservatism is a need. The ideology with respect and understanding for tradition, culture and history as well as an eye for the future, with ethical standpoints humanism/egalitarianism. That's what keeps the balance and prevents extremism from both corners.
Have you noticed that most guys support it while most girls do not. Disturbing that sex plays such a huge role on politics.
Its a good thing. Currently globalism is basically a toxic relationship where Europe is expected to give all that it has to people who don't care about it and are only using it. Imagine being told that your expected to sacrifice your life, your friends, your culture, your traditions for your significant other who also happens to ridicule you and belittle you every chance he/she got? That's basically globalism in a nutshell. You can't have a healthy relationship if you don't have a healthy view of self. That is all nationalism is, it doesn't mean that people can't immigrate their, doesn't mean that they think they are better then every one else, it means they know who they are, they see that they have value and they think their valuable enough that they should preserve their way of life no different then what others should do with their culture and societies. So nationalism is LONG over due and the inevitable outcome when subject to such toxic relationships as globalism institutes.
It better rise a whole lot more in order to battle the destruction of European society.
Good, you should feel pride in where they live. Each area has different ideals. It shouldn't be just one bland blah set of ideas across the world.
It is absolutely glorious. Nothing at all wrong with loving ones country.
Absolutely great. It makes me feel warm inside, to see true Europeans take pride in their countries and heitage.
it was expected since european countries took large numbers of migrants.
lndependence for Scotland we are taking back Scotland
Good thing. It's time we stop the EU from doing whatever it wants and forcing immigration and social dumping.
When you have, like us, a president who openly says that France has no culture, or that there isn't any real french...
Not to mention privatization pushed by the EU, and followed by our president. Now we've lost Paris airports to a private company, as well as the "Française des Jeux" that made big revenues for the state but has been sold to a private company. And the same fate awaits everything here, from health system to security.
It's time we finally put the EU in its place, and take back the sovereignty it's stealing from us. And protect our own borders.
Inevitable if you dont want to be an member of the European union.
It’s necessary, inevitable, and it will likely be bloody.
I knew that it would happen
Haven't seen it rise at all.
Gotta have pride in something
Its the normal response to liberal decadence.
don't live there i. wouldn't know
