Is National Liberation Good?

December 11, 2017

Is nationalism good or bad? If imperialism is bad, then nationalism is good, right? The short answer is that two wrongs don’t make a right, but, I hear you ask, what about First* Nations in the Americas and other oppressed people?

The ideal man is accomplished, heroic, powerful, handsome, hardened, skillful, talented, established, funny and has a lot of successes on the resume of his personal and business life, enough to earn him respect, friendship and a financially comfortable life.

The ideal woman is unspoilt, pure, beautiful, secretive, mysterious, seductive, sexy, young, free, funny (in a sexy way) and open-minded.

When these two ideals meet we get a man who has already lived and wants to settle down and have a wife and kids and a woman who is just about to begin her life and have a husband and kids.
