Nationalism: Keeping It Simple
StateOfNation is a 24-year-old British man living in Italy who produces the YouTube channel of the same name. Among his noteworthy videos are “Nationalism in 90 Seconds” and “The Demographic Decline of Britain.”
In this discussion, StateOfNation talks about the great divide of attitudes amongst Italians and Brits regarding the civil unrest that is bubbling out of the multicultural experiment. We address the narrative of White privilege and the reality of race-based aristocracy, and State defines “nation” relative to a self-identified ethnic group. He explains some of the common misconceptions of Nationalism in relation to Western colonialism and White supremacy along with the ideals of cultural relativism. We consider how unrelated issues such as homosexuality, feminism and gender equality are mistakenly intertwined with the concept of Nationalism. We get into the validity of the right/left political paradigm, the liberal side effects of global capitalism, and democracy as a battle of demography. StateOfNation refers to CasaPound Italia’s Identitarian approach to network building and empowering indigenous Italians. Then, we talk about State’s “5 Questions for Progressives” video, which asks why it’s a good idea morally to allow mass immigration to make Whites a minority in their own lands. We also touch on some counterproductive strategies that should not be applied in spreading the Nationalist message, as well as best practices for winning people over through simple humor, positivity and leading by example. Later, State gives his takes on the divided Brexit vote, how racial identity affects political interests, and why analyzing Whiteness is an important for reigniting Europeans’ love for their own culture. Our conversation rounds off with thoughts on the UK’s current political system, the place of Sharia Law courts in England, and the tribalist way of respecting individual communities with unique cultural differences.
