10) Nationalism is nothing more than perverted bigotry. Patriotism is fine, if you are a patriot of the world. Be a patriot. I wonder where NASA’s moon program would have been without strong nationalism in the form of the “Space Race?” My real beef though it that as government grows larger, those it’s supposed to represent have less say in that government, with world government being the least representative we could have on this planet, unless there is some Galactic Counsel we have yet to encounter. Therefore, world governance is inherently tyrannical at least to some of the people all the time leaving nation-states as our best alternative.
