"Consider what Nation it is whereof ye are, and whereof ye are the governors: a Nation not slow and dull, but of quick, ingenious, and piercing spirit, acute to invent, suttle and sinewy to discours, not beneath the reach of any point the highest that humane capacity can soar to."

Nationalism, is a non-quad, culturally ambigious ideology, specifically a Values ideology representing Nationalism in general without a specific country attached. It is a concept and movement advocating for the alignment of the nation's identity within the boundaries of the state.. As a movement, it tends to promote the interests of a particular nation (as in a group of people), especially with the aim of gaining and maintaining the nation's sovereignty (self-governance) over its perceived homeland to create a nation-state. It holds that each nation should govern itself, free from outside interference (self-determination), that a nation is a natural and ideal basis for a polity, and that the nation is the only rightful source of political power. It further aims to build and maintain a single national identity, based on a combination of shared social characteristics such as culture, ethnicity, geographic location, language, politics (or the government), religion, traditions and belief in a shared singular history, and to promote national unity or solidarity. Nationalism, therefore, seeks to preserve and foster a nation's traditional culture. There are various definitions of a "nation", which leads to different types of nationalism. The two main divergent forms identified by scholars are ethnic nationalism and civic nationalism. It is not to be confused with Patriotism, which refers to loyalty to ones own country.

Nation may also be used to represent a type of "Pan-Separatist Nationalism" which believes that the nation-states are good within itself and every nation should have its own nation-state, under this interpretation he might be also called Souverainism or Sovereignty.

Differences between patriotism, nationalism, and ultra nationalism

Patriotism, nationalism, and ultranationalism are terms often used in discussions about loyalty, identity, and love for one's country. While there can be some overlap in their meanings, they represent distinct concepts with different levels of intensity and implications. Here's an explanation of each term:

Patriotism: Patriotism is a sense of pride, loyalty, and affection towards one's country. It involves a deep connection and emotional attachment to the nation, its history, culture, and values. Patriots have a strong desire to contribute positively to their country and may support its symbols, traditions, and institutions.

Nationalism: Nationalism goes beyond patriotism and often implies a more intense and exclusive form of loyalty to one's nation. It places significant emphasis on the nation's interests, sovereignty, and collective identity. Nationalists believe in the primacy of their nation and may prioritize its needs and goals over international considerations.

Ultranationalism: Ultranationalism represents an extreme and often radical form of nationalism. It is characterized by an intense and fanatical devotion to one's nation, coupled with an aggressive and often militaristic stance towards perceived threats or rivals. Ultranationalists typically reject cultural diversity and advocate for strict homogeneity, often at the expense of minority rights. This ideology can manifest in xenophobia, extreme nationalism, and a disregard for international norms or cooperation. Ultranationalism can potentially lead to aggressive policies, conflicts, or acts of violence against other nations or minority groups within a country

American Nationalism

American Nationalism is a form of civic, ethnic, cultural or economic influences found in the United States Essentially, it indicates the aspects that characterize and distinguish the United States as an autonomous political community. The term often serves to explain efforts to reinforce its national identity and self-determination within their national and international affairs. It's variants include cultural nationalism and that the American identity is an integral element of American society, civic nationalism, which is built off of freedom and individual rights, and trumpism, which is based off of the former president Donald J. Trump.

Anti-Colonial Nationalism

See also: Left-Wing Nationalism Anti-Colonial Nationalism is a form of nationalism that focuses on decolonization and anti-imperialism. Because of colonialism’s creation of state and country lines across ethnic, religious, linguistic and other historical boundaries, anti-colonial nationalism is largely related to land first. After independence, especially in countries with particularly diverse populations with historic enmity, there have been a series of smaller independence movements that are also defined by anti-colonialism.



German Unification

See also: Bismarckism

German Nationalism is a form of nationalism that began to develop in the 1800s within the German Confederation. It became quite popular during the Enlightenment, where more and more educated Germans started striving towards a unified nation-state as in most of Europe by that point (and most recently Italian unification). The fist attempt at a German nation-state was the German Empire (1848-1849), which tried to establish a liberal and democratic unified Germany but failed. After this, a race of influence began where both Austria and Prussia tried to consolidate their power in the German states to establish a unified Germany under their rule. Prussia would eventually succeed, establishing the first ever unified German nation-state, the German Empire, in 1871.

Inter War

See also: Nazism

After losing World War I, German Nationalism skyrocketed, this lead to many new radical ideologies being thought up, most of which involving a form of Ultranationalism rather than regular nationalism. Examples of such ideologies include National Bolshevism , Strasserism, and eventually National Socialism; the latter being pioneered by the National Socialist German Workers' Party (Nazis) which would later come to power in Germany and start World War 2, after which the party and ideology were deposed. The Nazi era is strongly remembered and condemned in post-war as well as modern Germany, which lead to the whole idea of Nationalism being associated with the Nazis by many Germans, and thus a sharp decline in the ideology's popularity.


See also: Right-Wing Populism

In the modern day, German Nationalism is very frowned upon due to many opponents connecting the ideas of nationalism to the Nazis. Some nationalism continues to exist in Germany however, with some support going to the relatively new Alternative for Germany (AfD), which has its roots primarily in Right-Wing Populism. Due to its roots in Right-wing Populism and Economic Liberalism however, many German nationalists view the AfD as too soft or not properly representative of the ideas of nationalism. Explicit Nationalisms, especially those kinds which take an anti-capitalist approach, are extremely rare in modern Germany, with only very minor parties supporting them. The largest explicit nationalist party in Germany is the National Democratic Party of Germany (NPD), which is very controversial due to allowing Neo-Nazis in their party and being primarily associated with said movement, is itself very small and hasn't been represented in any state parliament since 2016. Other, even smaller, Neo-Nazi parties such as The Right or the III. Path exist too, but are extremely unpopular and given little consideration in German politics.


Turkish War of Independence

Nation is very patriotic and proud of what the country has done, especially military achievements. He loves competitive sports between countries.
