McCain ranted against “half-baked spurious nationalism” yesterday. This begs the question of what his party has offered in lieu of that. Dismantling the nation-state so that the Kochs can skip the next tax payment? The right to freak out and shoot into a crowd? Alienation and rootlessness masked as freedom and opportunity?
First, you do everything you can to undermine the nation-state model to benefit the supranational, highly mobile elites and then you wonder why people turn to half-baked nationalism to preserve at least a few shreds of what you are so busily trying to take away from them. Those bastards. How could they.
Fuck all that.
