A World Divided
by Paddy Vipond
 sub-topic» Nationalism

I try not to define myself as any nationality. I don’t believe I owe allegiance to any flag, or country in particular. I certainly don’t take pride in being a nationality, for a start I am not really sure what that even means. Does it mean that I should feel good about what other people have done? Other people that just so happened to have been born on the same land mass as me? The accusation of traitor has probably been leveled at those that have expressed similar views as these in the past. With regards to being told “you’re betraying your country”, I believe that it is an empty insult. As cliche as it sounds, I have no country. The world is my country and all of its people are my brothers and sisters. This is something I truly believe. I will not discriminate against someone due to their nationality, and I will not immediately support someone just because they are of the same nationality as me. Nationality to me is a creation. It is a concept that everyone buys into, and because of this, the concept is legitimised. In my opinion nationalities and nations are obsolete. That though, is for another article, and is another argument.

I don't usually advocate military intervention, but I am aware of a country that would seem—by our government's standards—to desperately need it.
