Nationalism, Fourth Divine Institution

Reader comment on item: Yes to Nationalism, No to Imperialism

Submitted by herbert r richmond, Aug 4, 2019 at 19:43

The fourth divine institution, also referred to as nationalism, maintains that national laws, distinctions, interests, and security take precedence over international interests. Essentially, nationalism furnishes protection for the first divine institution, the individual. Nationalism protects the individual's rights under the rule of law, thereby strengthening the freedom of a nation as a whole. I bought his book.
