Review: Nations Without Nationalism

Nations Without Nationalism Nations Without Nationalism by Julia Kristeva
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Moments of interesting.

The section I found most interesting was in the Open Letter to Harlem Desir - "National pride is comparable, from a psychological standpoint, to the good narcissistic image that the child gets from its mother and proceeds, through the intersecting play of identification demands emanating from both parents, to elaborate into an ego ideal. By not being aware of, underestimating, or degrading such a narcissistic image or ego ideal, one humiliates and lays subject or group open to depression."

Especially, when considering the current state of the world. Nations - their leaders - nothing more than children, and all that comes from being a child with it.
