Interesting. Looks like modern federalism is different from the classical American federalism. The classical American federalism supports the self determination of every identity group in its principles. Nationalism is bad, because it does nothing but create turf wars, out of which it derives national majorities, to rob everyone else, then uses that to go back to the turf war part of its cycle. Nationalism is what will eventually lead to a selective one world government, by creating and pushing country borders around, like they started with ww1. And if you are not on the selected list then you are history.
