This was marked as spam by Disqus. I read your article, and I need to make a few points (Disqus can kiss my butt). ‘Whatever merits might be assigned to nationalism as an abstract concept, Donald Trump’s version of “America First” seems just too ethnocentric to accept. The idea that America is qualitatively superior to other nations feels hubristic and immature.’ This is a terrible misconception the left and progressives have of people who want to put America First. It involves love for country, the people, our economy, education, and general welfare. This, in no way, is a nationalists way of thinking; “America is superior to other nations,” nor is it patriotism. Its liberal filth. I can make a reference to a former Pres. Obama and say; “A pig, is going to be a dirty, filthy pig, but it doesn’t how much you bath it, you can put a flower behind its ear, it will still be a dirty pig, that likes roll around in the dirt and sling mud.” I personally don’t see a problem with eradicating poverty, providing better education and jobs for the people of this country, before we go on a crusade in the name of globalization and act like we are the worlds saviors (which we aren’t), especialy if we can’t provide economic freedoms and opportunities for people in our country first. Your premise / argument also fails to recognize America as a independent nation. Like it is recognized in our constitution. I for one, love and enjoy my independence, like many people of this country do. We do not rely on anyone or anything for our own well-being, but we know there are other like-minded people who are willing to make sacrifices and be public servants (even if they choose to abuse those powers for their own self-interests and call it a national interest – which 99.99999% of the time it isn’t because no one can speak for everyone, much less a plurality on every issue they believe is true).
