The Worst of Nationalism — ISIL, the Euro-Fascists, Boko Haram, Israel-Palestine, and the American Extreme Right

Is nationalism the “presenting problem” of our time? And if it is, why? What are its roots and what energizes it? And why is it so toxic? We’ll assume that the answer to the first question is “yes.” And then we’ll explore the roots, the extent, and the dangers of modern nationalism. Unsurprisingly, we’ll visit IS (or ISIS or ISIL) as a modern embodiment of a developing global phenomenon. We’ll touch on the role of nationalism in developing nations, in Africa, in Europe, in the Middle East, for example. But we won’t ignore our home ground. We will also scrutinize emerging poisonous nationalism in the U.S.
