  •  This is what the Republicans did (4+ / 0-)

    with the war on terror

    nationalism provides a fake form of unity to counter the class divisions that arise in the system

    They also did this with race and religion - it was meant to distract people from class issues and bust apart the New Deal Coalition and sadly it worked..

    •  exactly, they employed tactics and methodology (4+ / 0-)

      that traditionally have been used very successfully by the right; religion and nationalism has been used for this purpose for a very long time.

      No society can surely be flourishing and happy, of which the far greater part of the members are poor and miserable (Adam Smith, 1776, I, p. 96).
