Ultra Nationalism contributed to this tragic event because a nation/group of Rwanda felt that they needed to get revenge on the tutsis because they believe they had shot down their president. It is all about revenge and power that had started this event because the hutus had felt they needed to get revenge and want power in return.
Nationalism, a political or social philosophy in which the prosperity of a nation-state as an existence is considered supreme or more important than anything else.

Nationalist was a root cause to World War 1. Nationalism played a role in the direct cause of WW1. A group of six assassins had enough nationalism to kill the archduke and start one of the biggest war in world history. If it wasn't for Nationalism then WW1 would've never taken place. This is so because if no one wanted to take place in a war things would've turned out a lot different and we wouldn't be the same today. Nationalism is so
Nationalism inspires a pride within a group of people that ignites change and strengthens unity. It is what keeps heritages and cultures of nations alive.

The source intends to provide a controversial opinion in order to prevent people from blindly following leaders as well as to provide a statement warning of the acts of nationalism. While the views from the source are beneficial and introduce different views on the subject of nationalism—nationalism doesn’t start wars nor does it lead to blind obedience; greedy and power hungry people who decidedly hind behind the views of nationalism do. Nationalism is just a term that describes the desire for the prosperity of one’s country as well as patriotic feelings towards said country. Feelings of pride for a country do not evoke malicious intent the people who twist those ideas and cross the line into ultranationalism do. Leaders such as Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Hirohito, and Harry Truman use the word nationalism to persuade others to follow them by glamorizing the term and tricking people into agreeing with them. The Holocaust wasn’t caused due to
Nationalism is a powerful force that can unite people working towards a common goal, but when it is taken to the extreme it can cause major disharmony in society, evident in the numerous genocides during the Age of Imperialism, the Fascist party's rise to power, and the Japanese’s unwillingness to surrender during World War II. Nationalism is dangerous, because it warps the minds of the individuals in the organization, creates prejudice and discrimination, and can be easily manipulated into a weapon against humanity.
My first reason to back up my statement on why nationalism was the reason this broke out is the “pointing of the finger”, which was found in document 5. All of the diffrent countries didn't want to take the fall on anything and so they just decided to blame it on another country. To me this is probably the most accurate reason because it
How did our country get here today? Were we always united in our decisions?

Nationalism has played a crucial role in world history over the past centuries. It continues to do so today. For many, nationalism is indelibly associated with some of the worst aspects of modern history, such as the destructive confidence of the Napoleon’s army and the murderous pride of Nazi Germany. Large numbers of people, descent in their hearts, have carried out unbelievable atrocities for no better reason than their nation required them to. Authoritarian and totalitarian regime have crushed dissent, eliminated opposition, and trampled on civil liberties in the name of the nation.
Nationalism can be described as a mix, multidimensional morally developed or created concept involving a shared common identification with one's Nation. It is more on politically motivated towards working and maintaining self-governance, or full sovereignty, working towards to a specific land or a territory of historical significance to the group such as land and its belongings. In simple Nationalism is a nation command and lead itself, free from foreign influence, it is the concept of self-rule.

Nationalism has become one of the most powerful uniting-and occasionally separating-powers of the modern age. Throughout history, there were numerous countries that exemplified both sides of this classic European belief. However, as time has passed, this pride and promotion of one’s country has developed far beyond the scope of Europe. Nationalist feelings fester in all parts of the globe now, and with that comes more complicated expressions of the sentiment, as well as carefully crafted governments that exist for the sole support of nationalist fervor.
Nationalism at its core is the support of a country. The goal of a country is to have some sort of resonance within the individuals that reside there that call themselves citizens. If the citizens don’t feel any connection with their country, they may move to find one that they feel closer too. Once found, they may support the country over others, defend it within conversations of politics or just find groups that have the same ideals they do about the country. This papers purpose is to illustrate the pros of nationalism as well as its cons.
