This is the reason I find nationalism to be deplorable. For I care about everyone in this world more than I care about my "nation" For it is just a place that I live.. but it is not everything I am about.

Nationalism is fine. If every nation was good, then it wouldn't be a problem.

I think you mean jingoism.

If your nation isnt strong you dont have the luxury of caring about the world.

Umm... no. Utopia is basically what you or anybody else think the world should be. Your dreams, your ideas of how everything should be.

To burst your bubble, you do have a vision or a wish of the kind of world you wish to live in, don't you? Like they say, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.



how come you only see commies blabbing about utopias then?

America is a beacon of hope. I am not saying we are better than the rest of the world, but I would not trade places with anyone else who did not live in America, but there are millions who would trade with me in a heartbeat. Where they can dare to hope and dream and know that they can make those hopes and dreams possible. In this country you can aspire to be what you want to be. To make the most out of their lives. Anyone who is willing to work hard and see their task through to the end can accomplish great things in America. America affords it's people to say what they want to say, the press to print what it wants to print or broadcast, you can worship as you see fit, no matter if you are Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, atheist, etc. You can go as far in life as you want. Here in America everyone starts out on equal footing. We all have the same opportunities to succeed.
