When radical inbred nationalism blindly serves in subordination to the plutocracies of international corporate-states, masquerading as so-called free marketplaces, the emergence of an oligarchy ruling-class within a state of neo-feudalism seems inevitable.
Excessive nationalism is a form of cultural self-centeredness, and as a collective thought-form, can only exist because the dominant in-group is itself comprised of self-centered and narcissistic individuals.
Excessive nationalism is one of many examples of a form of collective narcissism, where the citizens possess an inflated self-love of "their own people," to the exclusion of other human beings.
We huddle tightly together as cowards, protecting the ranks of our false collective identity from "less-human" intruders, when the only obvious and sane truth is that we are all the same human beings.
We find ourselves constantly in battle in the vast human theaters of conflict.
Out of the hobbled spirit of attachment, and the insecure need of belonging, come the gross judgments against those who do not belong.
Prejudice comes from insecurity and its spiritually infantile need of belonging.
Prejudice and supremacism reveal that people do not possess a balanced framework of compassionate independence and self-respect, which is necessary to respect others.
Nationalism is the world's most accepted form of anti-humanism.
Control thought-forms are the basis of our deepest moral crisis.
