2. More specifically, promulgating and engendering the nation as the supreme form of social unity and spiritual fulfilment. This is done by instilling among the general population: (a) love of common soil, race, language or historical culture, (b) desire for national political independence, security, or prestige, (c) devotion to the belief that the nation is more than the sum of its parts, (d) belief that the individual lives exclusively for the nation and that the nation is an end in itself, and (e) belief that the nation is or should be dominant among other nations.
3. Nationalism is a also global movement promoting a special type of global order. Nationalism is, paradoxically, the greatest of the transnational movements. Its ideal world order consists of: permanent states, formed by trans-generational communities, jointly holding all inhabitable territory. The exact number of states is not relevant to these characteristics. "Nationalism" includes ethno-nationalists who want independent states for 10 000 "peoples"; and globalists who believe in a single "nation of humanity".
