"For a nation is it important to remember a lot but also to forget a lot". (Ernest Renan)
Nation vs State?
“Nationalism is a belief that my nation is better than any other and people who are born in it are only because of this fact different.”
“I feel that the term Nationalism is used to describe people who are not in favour of European integration and can clearly see borders between every country. Those people are in favour of everyone belonging to their own country, instead of belonging to Europe.”
“I think that Nationalism can be seen as a way of group-formation and as a desire of people to belong somewhere, in this increasingly global and interconnected world.”
“For me Nationalism is some kind of egoism. If you are a nationalist you act and think first in the benefit for your own country or culture.”
“My point of view is that nationalism is the devotion to one’s own culture that in an excessive way can be harmful.”
“Nationalism is a sense of belonging, in this case to a region. Defending your ideas, values and habits of your place, your identity.”
“Nationalism is a way people people give meaning to their existence by saying: This is who I am, this is the right thing to do.”
“Nationalism is outlining the exceptionalism of your own nation in a very bold way.”
“I find nationalism rather hard to define as the concept is not limited to nations. It exists for any polity, even cities or the EU. “
“Nationalism is the attachment to national symbols.”

patriotism gone wrong
In fear, fight, anger, pity and generally with everything that means pleasure or pain, there is a "too little" and a "too much" an neither is good.
But to have all these feelings when one should, about what and against whom one should, in the way one should, is a true virtue.
