How nationalism and globalism can coexist | Wanis Kabbaj

2030 ratings | 49442 views
Why do we have to choose between nationalism and globalism, between loving our countries and caring for the world? In a talk with lessons for avowed nationalists and globalists alike, Wanis Kabbaj explains how we can challenge this polarizing, binary thinking -- and simultaneously be proud citizens of both our countries and the world.

How about a thesis that globalization is a nationalism in disguise. Nationalism of big nations who fight nationalism of the small ones. Soviet Union is past, however prime example of that. It was always fighting with nationalism of its smaller member states. Then proclaim internationalism was just a face to Russian nationalism. Globalists, as Soviets want to have a total control on the world's population, destroying family bonds, religious bonds and now bonds with one's country. That experiment failed in the past and it will fail again

I really dont get this discussion, Globalism vs Nationalism. They are not opposite's they exist together at the same time. That we present them as being opposite to eachother comes from the agenda of the speaker not by fact. I admire his will of creating a better world but by making globalism work that can lead to the same violence levels nationalism can create. When will people allow eachother to believe or follow where their heart leads them instead of raising the finger of morality.

This guy showed the statistic up on the screen for everyone to see -- 71% of the world's population considers themselves a citizen of the world. It doesn't say "Those who love our Country AND consider themselves citizens of the world," yet he said that anyway: He said that that 71% of people say they love their Country. Even though according to his statistic it literally only states the premise. That is the problem I have with the whole Globalist side of his argument, and it is why both of the belief systems cannot possibly live in harmony with each other. Taking America for example: While yes, Globalists for the most part may love this Country, or at least not hate it, Nationalists will say it proudly, they will express it, they have actual passion for the country, and they are willing to stick out their necks for it... They don't call themselves true patriots for nothing. Most Globalist thinkers don't say the phrase "I love this country" or "This country is great," if for no other reason than simply because they don't want to be labled with all of the right-wing cliches. Nationalists also acknowledge the fact that the US of A is the global superpower and that it is great based on its principles of freedom and opportunity. Globalists do not have TRUE love for America, per se -- they're more busy with trying to make the world a better place, while pointing out all of the country's supposed faults-- and they don't see how that is. Nationalists are trying to protect the very things -- like our basic rights as U.S. citizens -- that Globalists are unwittingly stripping away. "America First" is of course not the equivalent of Fascism, and it also doesn't mean that we don't go and police the world, or help other people, or even welcome immigrants (there's a difference in "immigrants" and "illegal immigrants."). But we do need to have our priorities right.

Shows some correlations and then proceeds to say "nationalism makes people happy" . Correlation does not equal causation - come on dude. "Globalization for humanistic reasons" um but we are entering an increasingly neoliberal age, in which global alliances are created out of greed. I didn't find this to be as compelling of a talk as the speaker wanted it to be. A rather superficial selection of particular facts. Nationalism and globalism do work well together, but you didn't investigate how they may feed off and help one another. And then the cricket example: dude, India was colonized by Britain - don't try to say that's a good thing because they like cricket now.

I stopped watching after about 1 minute. I can tell you the answer. All the injustices of the world, the destabilisation of nations, invasion of whole regions, the undermining of everything sovereign countries believe in and have worked for, the subversion of tried and true systems of life and government .. not to mention the cronies, murderers and monsters behind it all are behind "globalism". Nationalists are the ones that built the world that the globalists are trying to hijack/pull down/leech off. So, globalists, Go F yourselves. You're a bunch of Satan worshipping, evil goblins, and the people that follow you are soulless, mindless BORG . Did I tell you to go F yourselves? Well, let me say it again, if I didn't. Go F yourselves. - Yours sincerely, Those of us who still have a soul. P.S. You WILL burn. Mark my words. You might kill a lot of people on the way, because you have no conscience (you gave it to Moloch), but when all is said and done, you will burn.

I'm a globalist and a patriot but national identity is counter productive and mantained by people who require to be proud of something or those who profit from the same group. Your definition of nationalism is also patriotism which isn't true. I love the nature of my country and the only nationalistic view i have is what my country has to offer in terms food and drinks.

Nationalisms exists only in our heads, it isn’t really there ! This is why we as humans shouldn’t have countries and nationalities ! There should be one country called planet earth and it should be borderless ! There should be one nationality and it should be humanity! We all belong to Mother Earth 🌍

As an US citizen, white, mid-40s, heterosexual, Christian, husband, and father of several, I approve of this speaker's message. There's too much hate based around skin-deep differences and culture. The thinkers can't allow the mindless haters to manage things. Hater's aren't rational. Haters don't think far enough ahead, and don't respect consequences of short-sighted actions.

Globalists are like the communists that flew under the flag of socialism. They capitalize on an ideal that is a mass appeal, to serve their own selfish agenda. They promote world peace, great humanitarian effort, and substantially benefiting all walks of life. They want everybody open the door, so they can walk in and control the world. Globalists truly are rich, elitists that are hungry for world control. They want to erase culture and the only culture are the words these false shepherds speak. If truly they want humanity to benefit, they would not merely speak these rhetoric. Just ask, what and how have this guy done to promote what he stands for? What actions has he taken? What contribution?Rather than defining labels that truly don't matter, and misleading people away from the real focus. Ask the right questions, rather than letting this clown speak about false promises. Ask, what have you done lately? If people don't care for globalism, would you still be doing great humanitarian effort? If globalism is rejected, will you still sacrifice your weekends to contribute to the poor? If people reject globalism, will you still stand with the common folk and 90% of the commoners doing hard labor every single day. This clown speaks of a quick fix for life's struggle, but life is about struggle. It's about solidarity for the common man, the weekend volunteer, and small effort by regular people. This clown wants the throne for the few, the name, the hero brand, while everybody does the work. Most likely, they won't put in effort. They want people to follow them so their agendas have manpower to sustain their life, and not that of others, whom they so want people to believe they care for. Sure pizzas are good, fast food is in every corner, starbucks is affordable, but it's these pigs that reap all the benefits, sitting on their throne with no effort. These globalists have pizza parlors, starbucks in their kitchen, now they just want everybody's pantries and secret recipes. He speaks of past globalization, and fail to speak of the human sacrifice, the sadness of losing way of land and life, subjugated to foreign domination, proud culture subverted to humiliation, the millions that lost and suffered and remain forgotten and in the shadows. These globalists and their life through rose colored lenses. History always repeat. War follows peace. Globalists are the next communists. Pray for humanity. Their apetites grow larger, and they need sheep for the slaughterhouse. Forget nationalists or globalists, or American, or African, or world citizen. These are labels. Be human, be kind, be respectful, be true, be real, be creative, be a friend, be a neighboor.

If you want peace in the world, here's the solution. FELLOW DWELLERS OF THE EARTH; My name is Eight Billion, I contain an angel and a devil struggling inside, The face I dress varies to survive, Always hungry for power, never enough to content, I look for “inner peace” whilst consumed by grudge, For sons, for daughters, for the self, please be advised, there long existed the new code, aside, Let’s consider having an appointment with the best stylist for a change, Experience, how exceptionally would you look better reflecting the best, Thus, if you manage to change yourself, repenting for good, The place called Earth might turn into Heaven, I assure, It is me, it is you, it is us will power to CHANGE. There is a divine justice aspect. The colonial states will suffer the consequences of cruelty, massacres and unscrupulous acts to date. The world's greatest and wildest genocide was against North and South American residents. In 1945, atomic bombs that were delivered onto Hiroshima and Nagasaki destroyed more than a hundred thousand people. Also in February 1945, the United States and Britain bombarded Dresden, killing hundreds of thousands of spikes in a few days. Also one cannot do without mentioning the countless persecutions and massacres of the Soviet Union. The Catholic Church has burned many people alive. I now ask: Will all these atrocities, slaughter be unpunished? Of course not! That atheists do not believe in divine justice is not the proof that there is no divine justice. Europe is no longer Jewish-Christian, but paganized. Pagan civilization and morality are rapidly dragging the world and humanity into the Third World War. Western civilization, which is contrary to philosophy, has made the world uninhabitable. In all the heavenly religions, there is a mention of the divine time wars. The world and humanity will be ruined and sank because of their reproach. Could it be said that the Zionists have followed the Torah? Are Christians on the path of Jesus? Their true religion is the Golden Calf. Teachings of Jesus Christ are not all about singing songs in Churches and reading deities. Zionism and the state of Israel which are totally contrary to the Torah will bring terrible disasters to Jews and all humanity. As Kierkegaard said, they spit on his grave, saying, "Jesus." They have followed Satan and Taghut. First and second world wars and the madness of the Soviet Union did not bring their minds to their heads. The brainless civilization that sinks the world but at the same time sends satellite to Mars. Crazy civilization melting polar ice. Civilization invented and discovered nuclear weapons that could destroy mankind not only once but also thousands of times. The civilization of sin, rebellion and pleasure!

I think the best way to stop differences would be the ban of the big religions. Imagine a world where people would believe in love only. Today the conflict is about that different religions have different believes and these religions require people to give up their own views in order to follow strict rules. I think nationalist would be fine with globalism but with the ban of problem causing, big religions

You just have to realize that the strength of your country is determined by the strength of its immigrants. For example, in Canada, we won't be able to pay for our retirement accounts or welfare state without a lot of educated, working immigrants (who also clearly build our economy according to economists). So when you realize the strength and international relevance of your country is dependent on immigration, it becomes patriotic to embrace more immigration. People on the left who are pro-immigration need to speak to the values of the right. There are pro-economy, pro-business, pro-patriotic reasons to support immigration. So speak the language of your opponents and you are more likely to convince them. Start by familiarizing yourselves with the paper by Clemens et al: "Economics and emigration: trillion dollar bills on the sidewalk?". It's free, Google it.

The premise of this speech is wrong. Even though it has a good message. His definition of nationalism is wrong. What he means is patriotism. Nationalism - feeling superior to other countries and people Patriotism - feeling proud of being part of your country and it’s society You can’t be both nationalist and globalist by definition, but you can for sure be a patriot and a globalist.

Exchange of culture will happen with nationalism to. We are less nationaliatic as a whole now than we have ever been before, still he is talking about all these things imported from other cultures. Globalism has never really been tested as nationalism has. I fear that by exchanging to much of our cultures too quickly will end up in one single culture. But that is not what a globalist wants, is it? Back in time some businessman that had traveled overseas could bring home a new kind of spice, and that later became a part of his country's culture. But I think that forcing too much of this new spice into another country will not be appreciated. Islam and christianity, for instance, is known for forcing their beliefs into another country and that was not appreciated in the short term. But in the long term it was accepted and eventually even forgotten. But now that we have so much extremely lethal weapons and terrorist groups, polarised countries etc. I dont think that we have the ability to get through the short term period of the extreme change. I got these thoughts when I watched a video from Sweden and a video from the UK where Islamists said to newcommers that "we can make this country Islamic" if we work together. I have feared for what my ancerstors would think about Sweden nowadays and that is why I have had these thoughts.

So I was really curious about why he used different dictionaries when he defined the word Nationalism vs the word Globalism. So I googled the definition of Nationalism. This is the definition of Nationalism in most other dictionaries: nationalism: "The strong belief that the interests of a particular nation-state are of primary importance. Also, the belief that a people who share a common language, history, and culture should constitute an independent nation, free of foreign domination." Yeah. He's using the most edge-case definition of what is essentialy xenophobia in this speech. He's not actually talking about Nationalism, just pride in your own country. For people wondering why you can't actually work with Nationalists is because they don't want to work with you. They don't like you.

Xenophilia is a mental disorder common in white people, used by immigrants to promote more immigration of their own racial and ethnic background. Immigrants who pursue their own racist agenda often project racism in the healthy nature of non-xenophilic natives in the countries they are immigrating. It's a fascinating phenomenon, and an excellent example of why globalism will never work.

Can we stop this BS where nationalism is a positive thing? Being a nationalist means praising your country whatever it does. Can we stop mixing up nationalism, national identity and patriotism please? Everything else is correct, but constantly mixing up the terms does NOT help remedy the identity crises. Having a national identity is positive. Criticizing your government is a good thing. Accepting that everything that your nation does/has ultimately leads to fanatical denial. p.s. China is not as Marxist as much as they want you to think.

In the early 1400s the Chinese Emperors decided to stop trade and close their gates to the outside world. They thought that their country was the best place and didn't need contact with outside barbarians. In the time since, they were overlapped by the Europeans, humiliated by western military power, invaded by the Japanese and in the late 20th century plunged into abject poverty. It's good to see 600 years later they are recovering.

Does ' globalisation' mean colonialism too? Cuz that example at 10:28 re: cricket and India was a result of 400 years of British colonial rule, and not necessarily open migration or economic cooperation between governments of different sovereign countries that defines globalist policies today. There are loads of examples of culture that's been imported over the ages which local people now consider part of their identity. But let's not forget many were the result of mainly imperialistic Europeans conquering and oppressing natives, and even imposing their traditions on them giving the locals no choice but to adopt their foreign ways (whether food, religion, sport or music, etc.) and make them their own.

Solo las grandes corporaciones podrian ejercer un poder real en una situacion de globalizacion como la que se plantea hoy. Y eso la gente no lo va a permitir. Recuerden la independencia de America.

.."it's a powerful feeling" - it's very deep bioligical-based feeling? (- nationalism)..., so it won't go away soon..., but I think it's important to follow patriotism - as a positive feeling to a group of people, united by one territory, language and culture /vs. nationalism - as hate and agression to 'others'... To have humanity as total basis of globalisation process...

And if the USA 'send you home' then it would be to France, not North Africa?

But they do, and have, coexisted for as long as nations have traded goods. But, it was the world wars that defined our international reliance on one another. Although, if you think about it, before man, the planet's land masses, bodies of water, and "air space" had no borders. It was man's insertion of borders on Earth that created tribalism which evolved into nationalism. And with borders, came wars.
