The healthy pride in and attachment to one's native soil. Nationalism is of many kinds. Those reared in countries born somewhat late in history and blessed with diverse blood strains see nationalism as a civic virtue, a glue holding together fissiparous parts. They resent the tendency to equate it with the claustrophobic forms that have gone on the rampage in Europe. Smaller states more often see nationalism not so much as a means of triumphing over others, but rather as a means of preserving the qualities and standards of their ways of life.

It was the hateful nationalism of Germany, Italy, or Japan that had spawned the kind of tyranny that could plague us in 1984, and it had proved itself uncontrollably aggressive-although the world of Orwell's novel resembled all too graphically the practices of a state that had been one of the major victims of aggression. It was heresy to ask whether unrestrained one-worldism, internationalism, and interdependence might not propel us into new forms of tyranny.
So now they wait as they have waited before, and with wit and wisdom squeeze their small lives through the grand design of History. If they are not going to liberate everybody, they at least seem able to keep a modicum of freedom for themselves and the more dictatorial the powers that be the more they cherish that ability. In the past, oppressors were Arab or European ; now they are African. But when the need to keep them at bay arises the drill is the same : back to tribal and religious values, to tribal lands if at all possible.
