#MACRON: "#Patriotism is the exact opposite of nationalism. #Nationalism is a betrayal of patriotism by saying our interests first, who cares about the others, we erase what a nation holds dearest, what gives it life, what gives it grace. And what is essential— its moral values."
#TRUMP: "You know what I am? I’m a nationalist, okay? I’m a nationalist. Nationalist. Nothing wrong. Use that word. Use that word."

Agree completely with the last two sentences.

On the relationship between nationalism & patriotism and the defensibility of each, however, things are more complicated.

A thread of books on the ethics of #nationalism and #patriotism follows:
1. Margaret Moore, The Ethics of Nationalism

2. Robert McKim and Jeff McMahan edited volume on "The Morality of Nationalism"

There is a lot of going on as we speak with the futile attempt to install identity politics of hate (Populism) as a form of Patriotism. So enlightened critics are summarily deemed the enemy of the state for pointing out the impunity of the oppressors in power. #DoItRightNG
It was Adlai Stevenson that said “Patriotism is not short frenzied outburst of emotion, but the tranquil and steady dedication of a lifetime” Voting a political party and venerating then as a hub of saints that can do no wrong is cultism & not patriotism. #DoItRightNG
