      There is something about nationalism in this book, but I can't find the place. Nationalism is an immensely powerful force. His book describes the growth of nationalism in Germany before the Second World War. Nationalism is linked to deep-rooted human instincts and can not be easily ascribed to clever politicians.   “Christian nationalism – including the tendency of many evangelicals to seek power for themselves (and their version of Christianity) – is a threat to the true liberty of all.” Although Christian nationalists claim support for the reign of God throughout the land, it seems they are happy to use ungodly methods to achieve it.

      Nationalism or Freedom? Nationalism, however, is a fraud whereby would-be rulers `self-determine' to impose their vision of nationhood on an entire community. Nationalism is an ideology of separation, of hatred for the 'other.' It is a creed of violence and war and oppression. And it has absolutely nothing to offer the world's oppressed.   His book The Virtue of Nationalism is bound to resonate with a swath of intellectuals and voters, here and in Europe, who thrill when Trump and other politicians hammer on nationalist themes. Hazony presents a conception of nationalism with soft edges, one that is supposedly compatible with some measure of liberty.

Nationalism, ideology based on the idea that the individual’s loyalty and devotion to the nation-state surpass other individual or group interests. Although it is often thought to be very old, nationalism did not become a great determining factor in history until the end of the 18th century.
