Good morning to everyone in this room. I would like to thank the principal, the teachers, and my dear friends for allowing me to speak to you today about nationalism. Loyalty to a nation is the idea of nationalism. Every citizen must have this sense of allegiance if nationalism is to exist.
Without a doubt, this idea has been in human society from the beginning of time. Above all, it is an idea that brings a nation’s citizens together. Another characteristic of it is love for one’s country. The most significant element in global politics is likely nationalism.
A nation’s determination to protect itself is undoubtedly strengthened by nationalism. Among nationalists, there is a lot of sympathy for bolstering the military. Undoubtedly, having a powerful military is the best line of defense against adversaries from abroad.
Low-nationalist nations are likely to make little military expenditures. This is due to the disfavor of powerful militaries among those with low nationalism. Consequently, these nations that don’t take nationalism seriously are weak.
Nationalism also promotes environmental preservation. People with a strong sense of national pride would feel guilty about polluting their country. As a result, even in the absence of regulations, these individuals would actively try to safeguard the environment. A person with low nationalism, on the other hand, would casually dump the trash.
Nationalism is an influential factor in the globe today. There is a dark side to nationalism. However, the importance of nationalism cannot be diminished by this bad aspect. Human civilization would not have progressed without nationalism. Thank you.
