Applying some of the “ISMS.”

Civil nationalism at its core engages human values, such as freedom and equity for all, regardless of their faiths, cultures or race. It differs with “ethnic nationalism,” (MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN). To minorities or a new immigrant to the United States, this would somewhat serve as an intrusive and nostalgic paradigm which draws on race or history to set the country apart. I would assume that ‘ethnic nationalism’ in other countries around the world had led to war.

I’ve also come to realized that countries that have ethnic, nationalistic ideologies have a rise in inequality and some economic instability. Leaders of countries such as Armenia, Bulgaria, Croatia, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Romania, Russia, Serbia, and Turkey doesn’t openly declare themselves as ethnic nationalist due to other sentiments that might arise.

Even in our very own United States, our present President seems to also attract support from such sentiments. V. Putin of Russia has openly used Russian nationalist predilection to motivate many of his nationals. There is an increase of this growing ethnic political parties inspired by national identity throughout the world.

As a student of Political Science, I think that it would be wise to observe these two “isms” in global diplomacy whether something so general might have a probable explanation, other than simple hypothetical events like the gradual evanescent of reminiscences about the terrors of ethnic struggle in World War II. Or the emergence of modernity, its forms, or the way how an ideological concept can wage violent of ethnic terrorism.
