This page is for reference and information on Nationalism. I believe nationalism is a growing concern towards peace in the world, a fairly new phenomenon.

I think many Americans’ patriotic leanings get ultra-nationalistic. An example was Virgil Goode’s recent rampage about Keith Ellison using the Qu’ran to be sworn in as a Congressman, when the Constitution clearly stipulates there shall be no religious test for any Congressman or individual seeking political office.

Here are several books highly recommended on nationalism.
