"Man is a slave neither of his race nor his language, nor of his religion, nor of the course of rivers nor of the direction taken by mountain chains. A large aggregate of men, healthy in mind and warm of heart, creates the kind of moral conscience which we call a nation."[1]

Civic Nationalism (Shortened to CivNat) and also called Liberal Nationalism, is a type of nationalism that defines nationhood in terms of liberal values, such as liberty and equality, applied to all within the nation, which usually manifest itself in the country's constitution. Civic Nationalism believes the primary pillar of being a member of a country is citizenship above all other identification. CivNat is also sometimes referred to as Cultural Nationalism (as opposed to Ethnonationalism and Racial Nationalism), however some argue that that is a different ideology altogether.


Authoritarian Civic Nationalism

Authoritarian Civic Nationalism combines elements of Civic Nationalism with Authoritarianism. AuthCivNats believe that a person's nationality is determined by their allegiance or loyalty to a state (citizenship). However, they believe that national unity must be sustained through forced diversity and a strong police force. This is to ensure any potential source of division among the citizenry (e.g., religion or race) is mitigated. Perhaps the best example of this is modern-day Singapore, where the ruling party has diversity quotas in housing and laws prohibiting hate speech to ensure all ethno-religious groups in the country are unified. Abraham Lincoln could also be considered an AuthCivNat, as he utilized dictatorial powers to keep Americans united.

The party emerged in 1887, being the oldest party in the country, even though it had been refounded in 1978. The party has had 16 presidents throughout its history, being repressed after the 1947 revolution under Stroessner's government, causing several members to become take refuge in Argentina.

CivNat's behavior isn't very much different from the behavior of normal Nationalism, however, he is considered to be "not hardcore enough" and "kind of a cuck" by some of the more extreme nationalist balls. He considers the more extreme nationalist balls to be braindead bigots who do more to hurt the nation” in return.

After all, we are an European people from the white race, Greek and Latin culture, and Christian religion. Try to mix oil and vinegar together. Shake the bottle. After a while, they get separated again. The Arabs are the Arabs, the French are the French. Do you believe that the French nation is able to integrate ten million Muslims who shall be twenty million tomorrow and forty million the day after? If we integrated them, if all the Arabs and Berbers were considered French, how could we prevent them from moving to our home country where the standard of living is so much higher? My village wouldn't be named Colombey-les-Deux-Églises (Colombey of the Two Churches) anymore, but Colombey-les-Deux-Mosquées (Colombey of the Two Mosques)!"
