'''Nationalism''' is a feeling of unity among a group of people born out of the [[French Revolution]] and [[Age of Enlightenment]] idea of worship of the ''[[Patriotism|Patrie]]'', or one's national origins and a sense of pride in their country.
Nationalists today support [[national sovereignty]] and [[self-governance]] over [[globalism]], preserving their respective national cultures and demographics over [[multiculturalism]], and a [[border wall]].
