Any “American System” Must Devolve the Federal Government Unto Main Street to Save America

If nationalism is uniformly “the premise that the individual’s loyalty and devotion to the nation-state surpass other individual or group interests” according to Encyclopedia Britannica, then Beck, as usual, ridiculously hyperventilated behind the microphone inside his Dallas studio. Beck is himself a nationalist; in fact, he is an openly proud American patriot, a “flag waver”. If people are willingly to be identified based on their favorite college football program’s conference just as colonists did primarily by state (in fact, there were 13 colonies, not one united front, prior to the formation of the new nation), America cannot be a nation grounded under any common cultural foundation. Rather, it thrives off primally tribal “ethnographic principles” much as the original settlers who, over 30,000 years ago, crossed the Bering Strait land bridge into an untamed North America. American nationalism has always rejected the erosion of national sovereignty or, more specifically, “the particular and parochial, the differences, and the national individualities” the United Nations and European Union have successfully undermined by destroying what is “universally human, the faith in reason (one and the same everywhere) as well as in common sense, the survival of Christian and Stoic traditions… compatible with cosmopolitan convictions and… a general love of mankind” driving their agenda for a one world government.
