    One thought on “Notes on Nationalism”

    1. This is something everyone should read as part of their history course imo. Having said that, ultimately this is basically an application of a critique of ideologies (which can then be extended as a critique of -isms and any extreme belief), which many other philosophers have worded better.

    2. From the moment I first heard about the new Penguin Modern Classics series on the YouTube channel of Jean Bookishthoughts, I've become a little obsessed with this collection of books. Where I purchased only a handful of the classics from a few years ago, in the days since the launch of the new series I've become the owner of 12 of the 50 titles. #sorrynotsorry At just £1 a book this is a very affordable series, making it a great entryway to modern literature and voices if you're not yet familia [...]

    3. George Orwell. 1984. Animal Farm. His various other texts are unfortunately not as known. Unknown also to myself, as reading this essay was on my list of 'things to be read'. (Which is a preponderously large, lumbering, and mostly electronic bookshelf overflowing with enough books to literally drown myself in. *Dream death*)I've been meaning to read this in thorough, to really dig into the words, taste and savor their purpose and garner a sense of purpose. I needed to establish a sort of gravita [...]

    4. I am quite confused on how to judge this. George Orwell himself is a socialist who criticizes many political views to claim that socialism is the only ideology/theory that can improve Europe (and should spread universally?). This would completely contradict his final statement on moral effort, speaking on how we should struggle against our political preference to keep unclouded intelligentsia thriving. Orwell may give some pros of nationalism, but he brushes the reasoning off and focuses strongl [...]

    5. RATING 4.5 starsI had a hunch I would enjoy this, but I didn't expect to like it so much. I've read a couple of Orwell's novels, and his political narratives tend to interest me more than anything else. He has such a way with describing contemporary affairs, whether that be politically, socially or economically. I just knew I had to pick this Penguin Modern up as soon as it was released, and I'm so glad that I did. This contains three essays from Orwell's larger collection Essays (which wasn't w [...]

    6. El nacionalismo en sentido amplio como él lo describe está de rabiosa actualidad. Dificil no dejarse influenciar por los sentimientos en nuestros análisis de la realidad. Y por supuesto exacerbado termina siempre llevando al abismo.Creo que la experiencia demuestra que jamás aprendemos de la historia.

    7. An essay that questions all forms of extremism, it argues for reason as opposed to blind passionism to defend any idea and for our obligation as citizens to engage in political activities with such an objective standpoint. Interesting, yet I think others authors have addressed this issue in a more profound way.

    8. Otro de los imprescindibles de Orwell que puede aplicarse perfectamente a lo que está sucediendo actualmente en algunos países como España. Un decálogo de cómo ser nacionalista sin morir en el intento. Suscribo palabra por palabra sus reflexiones. Básico.

    9. A short essay about nationalism, written in 1945. The details are about the politics of that time, but the concepts are quite actual. The ending is quite inspiring.

    10. Excelente descripción válida para nuestra realidad, realmente los fundamentos del pensamiento no cambian, solamente cambian las fijaciones, un visionario.
