When I think of "nationalist" countries, France always comes to mind. It's no secret that the French are extremely nationalistic. They staunchly
defend their language and it's proper grammar and pronunciation. And the fact that the French government has historically shown a great difficulty
in assimilating citizens who might not be French by heritage. This is most acutely evidenced by the recent rioting.
France will most assuredly have to change their society to incorporate their "multinational" citizens. As such, does this mean French Nationalism
is now dead? More so, does this herald the death of nationalism the world over?
