    Macron is deeply unpopular. He's trying to appeal to the far-left and no one cares.

    Nationalism and patriotism seem to be synonymous if we're being honest.

    Well, the selfish old people and government dependents who want their month-long vacations and who allowed a hostile minority to grow in France put him in office in do I guess. They put him in office somehow. This is him trying to harness that inferiority complex that France have had since 1940. Really comes out when it comes to America.

    Most (if not all) civilizations emerged from Nationalism. Without functioning Nationalism we would all be living like somalis.

    They are, actually.

    2 words with the basically the same meaning.

    But because of reasons that befuddle me, Liberal fucktards added the "white" in front of Nationalism, and now it's Racist to focus only on your own country.

    What a load of shit.

    How many non-Western countries have you been to? And I don't mean visiting some specially designated tourist resort either.

    Beating away on strawmen, again. Nothing shows how weak your counter point is more than trying to move the argument away from the statements.

    Actually their devotion is to the leader, and if you fail to display sufficient devotion it's well known that they fucking kill you and put three generations of your family in a concentration camp.

    But the truth is that people who want power will appeal to whatever they think they need to for acquiring it. Religion, patriotism, racial identity, historical identity, the people, the betterment of workers, the common good, security and safety, jobs jobs jobs, revenge, the stupidity or cruelty of the other. The list goes on.

    The counterweight is a culture with a robust sense of personal liberty, suspicion of authority and centralized power and a healthy competitive marketplace.

    True it seems aceoss the board different pre 2000s. Crazy how much 20 years changes things.

    Mass immigration i believe largely started in the 90s though. Well france had it since the post algerian days. But they ramped it up in UK and France after the cold war ended as did many other states it seemed. Looking back mid to late 90s seemed good and in countries were there was start of mass immigration of non europeans it seemed like the multicultural model could work.
