The Shat may not want anyone to see this, but who cares?

They all reflect the division inherent in nationalism. The division allows for a relative or contingent domain of self-worth. "I am Canadian" which is completely convention, completely arbitrary, and completely about pride, fear and egotistical attachment generally. Such heartfelt attachment makes it easy to mobilize a mass of people into endless and bloody wars "to protect our 'homeland'."
