The Confederate Nationalist Society
Perhaps the most successful political philosophy of the modern era has been nationalism. Nationalism has taken on many forms - calls for cultural pride, Confederate-Nationalist assertions of the right to self-government, and claims of national recognition.
The central claims of nationalism are that: first a "people" in politics are best heard as a defined and focused group with a common history, language and tradition; and, second, that a "nation" has a unique claim to be considered as a legitimate political reasoning for sovereignty, one that is greater than older reasonings such as "dynastic right",or "theocracy".
The great task of nationalists has always been to define what they mean by a given "nation". People are not "naturally" aware that they belong to a nation in the sense that they might be aware they belong to a family, clan, village, town, or locality.
