Nation, Communitarism, Peace and Globalisation: A Vulnerable Relationship

Abstract: Nations are mainly evolutive categories rather than natural creations. National movements, determined by invoking common past ideals, produced a national conscience which, in turn, shaped the nation further. The nation-state principle was imposed for a long period in the 20th century along with “decolonisation”. A social and solidary economy (not excluding profit) was increasingly accepted. Education and the economy became essential factors of peace. Soon problems occurred. In extreme conditions, nationalist parties received more and more votes. Therefore, “nationals” came up against “globalists?” But we can hardly accept this adversity. Globalisation should be beneficial to the whole world, and we should avoid considering it as a synonym for a lack of patriotism. It is a dynamic process that indicates the direction of the world’s evolution.

Keywords: General Economics, International Economics General, Globalisation, Economic Systems, Cultural Economics, National Government, Public Economics.
