Nationalism is on the rise

To the Editor,

Nationalism: Oxford American Dictionary, an extreme form is marked by a feeling of superiority over other countries.

Sen. Rubio, R-Fla., on Fox, and many others trying to defend Trump’s rhetoric on nationalism, giving his take on what nationalism means.

There are many countries that do no resonate to American values. But they have a right to their own beliefs. Why not?

The Middle East is a powder keg ready to explode. Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq and Israel, all with their own interpretation of nationalism for their beliefs and values they believe in. Not America’s.

Trump and his nationalism agenda are pushing the world historically back to what it was before World War I nationalism, World War II nationalism, for a conflict for World War III.

“History repeats itself first as tragedy, then as a farce.” — Karl Marx.

After a global economy, free-trade world of peace over the last 80 years, wouldn’t it be a farce to have war over the definition of a word.

Nationalism. It’s on the rise.
