Back at the beginning of the First World War there was a debate among socialists — should each socialist party in each country support its own country in the War? or should all the socialist parties band together and oppose the War as a war on working people? The first position won, and the socialist parties became nationalists (except for the communists and the anarchists). In my opinion, the parties of the working people should have rejected nationalism in favor of internationalism. Working people all over the world have more in common with each other than they have with the ruling class where they live.
