Gregor: The False Dichotomy of Nationalism Versus Patriotism

Recently, the President of the United States stated that he is a nationalist. That sent tremors throughout the globalist and leftist academic community. Almost immediately, the President of France felt called upon to explain why his country cousins in North America should be disturbed. We were told that nationalism was “the very opposite” of patriotism. Thus, the President of France apparently still recognizes the Stalinist distinction between nationalism and patriotism he learned at university from his leftist professors.

BBC: ‘A Nation of Active Citizens’ Is Xi Jinping’s ‘Nightmare’

The BBC’s profile of Chinese President Xi Jinping is almost as lengthy as the one published by China’s state-run Xinhua news service, and it’s considerably flashier in its multimedia presentation style, but it’s also a good deal more skeptical. The BBC sees a vast cult of personality developing around China’s leader, nourished by the full power of the Chinese state. History has yet to provide an example of a cult of personality with a happy ending.

As a people, the Chinese obviously know something about building, and maintaining, a strong civilization. And one of the keys to civilization-maintenance is strategic power, both military and industrial. The verdict of history is that sluggishness and ineptitude is catastrophic; the world is always in motion, and so the only hope for a people is to stay atop of the change, lest they be swept under. So now, here’s a pointed question for Americans: Who’s lethargic, and incompetent, today? If not its people as a whole, then at least its ruling elite? Who’s fiddling while the country burns—or falls apart?
