I completely agree. This is proven by all the nationalists who have been willing to subordinate everything to the state, including their freedom, their families, and their faith.

Barely agree, since US nationalism as an expression of support for the revolutionary ideals of its formation is an exception to the rule.

That’s how nationalism usually starts. As an anti-establishment movement.
And then it becomes the establishment. And that’s when it’s proponents start to see things like individual liberty, and connections to family or religion, as threats to the state.

I see the usual example of nationalism as an extension of unenlightened self-interest; the me first, and then mine, and then my friends, and then my acquaintances, and then those most like me tendency.

So you’re saying if the plane is going down, you’ll put the oxygen mask on the person next to you, first? Is that the analogy?

Is that what you think the opposite of nationalism is?

What’s the connection to being anti-liberty?

Certainly contrary to liberty. I suppose it could eat away at religion in that it can conflict with the morals religious people claim to have. I think it would only eat away at your family if y’all disagree.
