Oxymoronic...

One of the gifts which both Marxism and it's more radically leftist cousin Americanism has bequeathed to the world is the ability to re-define words and even reality itself.

One such example is the definition of Nation. Since the advent of Americanism/Marxism the definition has been completely re-written to the point that it now actually means the complete opposite of what it meant for thousands of years and how it is still defined only in secular text prior to the 20th century and the bible.

For instance, America is not a nation. Can't be. Which makes such linguistic concoctions as "a nation of immigrants" one of the more profound examples of an oxymoron and generally reflects the intellectual apathy found amongst the populace.

A nation is NOT a place.
A nation is NOT an ideology, creed or philosophy.

What is a nation?

In the simplest terms, Nation is another word for Ethnic Group.

A nation is a race or stock of people. The English are a nation. The Irish are a nation.
They need not be gathered in the same local or residing under a similar form of government to be a nation.

Let me say this again,

Nation is another word for Ethnic Group.

A nation is a biological unit. An extended family, aka a tribe.


From the Etymology Dictionary
Nation
c.1300, from O.Fr. nacion, from L. nationem (nom. natio) "nation, stock, race," lit. "that which has been born," from natus, pp. of nasci "be born"
-source



The consequences of such a lack of knowledge leads to all kinds of problems and comedy. Such as the (inherently American) Evangelical interpretation of "prophesy" in regards to Israel becoming a nation again in the 1940's and how that "sign" points to the end of days.
The irony there is that if they believe modern jews are the Israel of the bible, then they didn't
"become a nation "again in 1948 as they never stopped being a nation (i.e., an ethnic group) in the first place.


No, nations are ancient. They are primordial. Their origins reside in the mists of time. Nations are not created by men. They are not zip codes or clubs to be joined.

A Nation is blood.
