The danger of nationalism such as “Make America Great Again” or Brexit is this: it limits our human potential. For the success of humankind, collaboration, not isolation, is required to achieve success.
Put it another way, winning at all costs is sub-optimal and pales in comparison to the magnitude of problems we face. Pollutions, climate change, coronavirus pandemic, just to name a few, are challenges affect us all. Their solutions require collaboration.
So this every country for itself is a short-sighted and, dare I say, selfish modus operandi, and a sure fire way to mutual destruction. Because no one country has the monopoly on human welfare, let alone of going alone.
What do you think about nationalism? Has it been over-played?
