Is Nationaism the worst Religion? Richard Dawkins called Nationaism wo

  1. Castlepaloma profile image75
    Castlepalomaposted 6 months ago

    Many express the damage of Religion, yet Nationalism not so much. It takes very work at all to see a supernatural hell is nonsense.Yet America hell on earth from wars and prisons are much hidden. Nationaism see little themselves as economy slaves. Or greater slavery by gun point world-wide, more than any other time in human history. At least 80% of humanity lives on less than $10 a day.

    America own deities, The founding fathers. We appeal to them in times of disagreement. like gods of old,  and treat their word as gospel. We know how that is ignored in Justice and in life.

    Then we have Nationalism ministers, called politicians. They spout off whatever they want and we accept as the gospel truth. No need for fact checking. There rules in the Bible are :not to kill or steal: yet tool Religion to fight 90percent of the World's wars.

    Goverments have licenses to kill, Massesally greater than the Public in history . A license to burglary us by taxes greater than anyone. if disagree, a choice jail or forced by gun point.

    When a Christian is killed, they died for their Christ. When a soldier in the military is killed, they died for any right that’s convenient at the time, including the right to harm another. Or burn a village to save a village. No news on women and the children in their hellfire!!! justifying anything.

    We lock up people possessing small amounts of substances and call them criminals? We withhold civil rights from gays and nonbelievers. Under the “American way of life” Christianity has its chosen people against other Religions. But in Nationalism, the chosen people are the citizens, who have divine importance over anyone else.The Japanese! The Chinese! The Russians! The Syrians! The Mexicans!

    Theistic religions racism is more subtle, swept under the rug. Nationalism is blatant like Trump. Should Nationalism become more apparent of it's bigotry embraced against Muslim.

    If you think about speaking out about your country bombing someone else or question it. If you dislike its martyrs call soldiers. If you criticize the president or say anything about false flags. Be Prepare to be publicly shamed or not educated and most ignored.

    It doesn’t matter if its citizens treaded inhumanely. You are criticizing the nation, it's shaming, it will not be tolerated, yet each is engaged in divine Nationaism.

    “Don’t talk politics or religion with family and friends. It only causes arguments and hard feelings and absolutely avoided in business. Or bham! A heated impossible battle.

    As we wander in life we do need more kindness in this world than Nationaism or Religion.

    Your thoughts?

      While the above is said in American context but I must say it fits a lot of nations, maybe with minor changes. At least I can relate to much of this as an age old problem in my country. Something currently blowing out of proportion!

      As for Nationalism I agree it divides more than it unites or consolidates. Just like religion, it too is more of an abused concept for ulterior motives. From its broader definition, I think it essentially boils down to 'me' myself' and 'self superiority'. It begets hatred and the obvious fallout being collapse of communal harmony and peaceful coexistence.

    Yes Nationaism is worldwide and much of it is connected like puzzles with a long history. It's recently reached more places and is far more dangerous than any one Religion. It is in plain sight everywhere when you know now to read it, like the pyramid and the eye.

    Welcome back Castlepaloma,
    What I love most about what is said above is that it is all said by the ultimate  non-nationalist ,  a true man of the world ,  one without ties to any country  ,  What was that old movie and book  from the first part of the century , ....... "A Man Without A Country " , .......a man cast to all future life on the sea , transferred from ship to ship never to touch shore again as punishment for some treasonous  act .   
    Simply put to the man who hates America , this thread somehow  reminds me of the emotionally entitled child that hates his family and secretly wishes he was adopted .

    Learn how to love something ,  not hate everything .

        Well horse our opposites must attract.

        Dawkins maybe a grumpy old atheist. Yet, he dose stand as I do,  that we are bioorganism first.  Trump better add these group like Muslim to his world record enemies list. Because nonbelievers are fastest growing group in the world.

        Corperations own 90℅  of the media, they own your Government, your jobs waterways and almost everyway except my body and soul.

        Most Jews are not Nationaist, yet 80℅ Israel Zionist fake Jews are. Trump is a President of a United state of corperations, not a country.  

        Corp US has no evidence to support this supremely idiotic and dogmatic claim. Your Government is illegitimate. Nationaism is just another brand name to own you. United States maintains 900 military bases in 130 Nations. Yet still NWO is loosing their strategy strangle hold on the planet. These biologic -organism people are the true leaders throughout human history, making me, my own boss and king of my own freedom domain.  Not these fake Nationaism wealthy synthetics who enslave us.

      You think Nationaism will turn over a new leaf on Xmas day?

      Funny, Dawkins loves Xmas and his family.

      Maybe there is Hope for Satan and can be Saved too.
