Internationalism, as opposed to nationalism and imperialism must be the most fair and humane principle to organise world affairs.
- Our true nationality is mankind – Ramsay MacDonald
- Nationalism is an infantile sickness – Albert Einstein
- There is only one race, the human race – Robert Sobukwe
Many of these ideals are used in speeches by British, US, Canadian, New Zealand and Australian leaders, and they tend to talk about world affairs, and the “international community” in a way that make it seem that they have everyone’s interests at heart.
Yet these 5 countries go to war together quite often. They attack distant Muslim countries that are not really threatening them.
Together, they run the the “five eyes” surveillance project which they use to spy on the citizens of the world, including even their European allies.
Why should we not suspect the existence of a multi-country Anglo imperialism not unlike nationalism in the evils it does and its ethnic basis, but cloaked by habitual soft talk and ethical internationalist language? This sort of Anglo collusion seems like a stab in the back to the ideal of an end to ethnic chauvinism.
