Absolutly nothing whatsoever.

It depends if you are a nationalist or not.

To the nationalist's society, a sense of pride and unity. To society as a whole? Not particularly.

It certainly isn't negative, unless it's militant. In my eyes, it's just a nice way to show your pride, and unity

Not really, unless everyone within that society feels the same.

never has, and i doubt it ever will.

This one's tricky.
It does give a society a sense of pride in their country, which they will probably be more productive and caring.
On the other hand, some people(usually the masses) will tend to take it too far, which would be beau's point.

It can get people to do good things that they normally wouldn't do (IE: signing up for a very hard job) but it's bad effects can destroy all the good effects.

Nationalism is a society disease.... people should work on being good citizens of the world not just thier own country.

depends on your definition, i'd say devotion to your country isn't always a bad thing. why would it be?
17 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Sunday 8/15/04 - 1:12:56 AM EST (GMT-5)
Sober minded nationalism and a good head on your shoulders are nice.

"The belief that nations will benefit from acting independently rather than collectively, emphasizing national rather than international goals."

don't agree so no

Nationalism can be good for the country/society that emphasizes it, but often not for the global community/society.

Only when there are national holidays....because every excuse for a party is a good one.

I like M1r4s take on it. Maybe I just need to be exposed to some benevolent nationalists, but my experience with these people has rarely been positive.
