Why are Americans more important than anyone else?

I am okay with taking a piece of land and giving it a name, but this imaginary community bullshit has gone on long enough. The modern nation-state is a crime against humanity.

Why is anyone more important than anyone else? That's up to each person to decide, whether part of a state or not.

However, one might look at it as "me first" or "my family and friends first." Since for most Americans, their friends and family are also Americans, putting the country they all live in first in importance makes sense. You may disagree with it, but it isn't without rationale.

And despite what you may think, without nations to put first I'm certain people would find some other grouping to consider more important.

America is an imaginary community, and Americans are an imaginary collective. I would never argue that you should not put your actual community first, but that isn't America. It is just some bullshit that we get hung up on.

And despite what you may think, without nations to put first I'm certain people would find some other grouping to consider more important.

They might move their actual community up on the list. Nationalism is a silly abstraction exploited for the special interests of the ruling class.

I am not arguing that you should not consider yourself an American. You should just be realistic about what is actual and what is invented. If you are going to subscribe to a collective, then try joining the human race.

Until the entire nation and world embraces your POV, by becoming educated and enlightened, keeping America strong is the best way to ensure your political ideology has the best chance to survive, evolve, and dominate the earth. Only be forming autonomous, mutually beneficial voluntary communities that interact in a non-centralized fashion will problems ever be solved. IMO, though, the transition must be gradual, not radical in nature. Folks don't like sudden change.

Unfortunately, you are being too short sighted, militant and ideological to understand this.

America First because the saying applies TO America. We are not asking Germans to put America first, we are not asking Egyptians to put America first, we are saying America comes first IN AMERICA. retard.

If you ever understand what America is, you won't have to ask that question anymore.

A piece of land

What do you mean keep America strong? It is a piece of land. Do you mean the United States of America, the oppressive police state? Keeping that strong is an assurity that human beings will become dumber and more degraded, moreso than you.

Of course, you are too short sighted, timid, and complacent to understand this.

No matter how many times you stamp your feet and pout you won't get anarchy to take over. Thank God.

Anarchy does not "take over."

It isn't an infestation like statism.

Once again Anarchy will not become the norm. It does not work in any group over a few dozen and is a recipe for murder mayhem and theft.

Anarchy does not 'work,' it just is. It isn't a collectivist nightmare like statism.

Statism is a recipe for mass murder and theft. We call it war and taxation.

Lots of countries put the interests of their people over those of others. Since nationalism can cause trouble, Germany has removed the words Deutschland Über Alles from the anthem.

Every human should be "their people."

I am currently residing in America. If I had to choose between saving 10 people in Florida or 10 people in Romania, it wouldn't make a fucking difference to me who I saved. Human is human.

Hypothetical.

Would you save 10 Americans or 100 Germans? If your answer is the former, then you are apart of the problem.

No, that graphic is not "America".

So what is your conjectural assertion of what America is?

America is a social construct. It is an idea attached to a concept..
