Nationalism is a philosophy that is opposed to globalism. According to Roosh, the individual and the national go hand in hand. The future of the world notes, "A nationalist is likely to believe in closed borders, patriarchy, protectionism, tradition, monotheism, decentralization, and gun rights."
Nationalism may be seen as the social equivalent of self-esteem in psychology. Self-esteem is that state of being for oneself—of being on your own side. Likewise, nationalism is the state of being for your people. In this sense the opposite of a nationalist is a cuck.
