Is the nation racialised?

Extracts from this document...


Sociology 101 Is the nation racialised? We are in the 21st century. The world has been under huge changes through the years. New states have been created from the division of former states (e.g.U.S.S.R. ). The globalization is now a fact. There has been a transition away from the idea of a "nationality" and integration into coalitions such as the European Union. In a way, the concept of ethnic borders is gradually becoming a technicality where international relations are concerned rather than the basis of these. During the first twenty years of the past century people were immigrating towards America for the chase of "The American Dream". Afterwards, there has been a huge immigration wave in Europe to Germany and other industrial developing countries like Belgium. In nowadays we have also people that they are leaving their countries for a "better" future. We can see a lot of young men and women who are leaving their countries in order to study abroad. People with different cultures and ideas are gathering together to universities and they exchange their different opinions All these have resulted that now we are living in multicultural countries. In some countries it's hardly to distinguish the difference between local and immigrant people. ...read more.


Hitler, for example, he based his theory upon the racial difference. In his work, "Mein Kampf" Hitler believed in inequality between races and individuals as part of an unchangeable natural order and was in favour of one race the Aryan race. The natural unit of mankind was the people, of which the German was the greatest. Hitler's believes are in represent in way the capitalist way of thinking. This happening because he believes in class division between people, something that it exists in capitalist economic system. These ideas are reflecting the way of thinking of many people in developed countries like Germany, United Kingdom and others. Countries which are industrial developed (like Germany) or countries which have "rich" history (like Greece) many habitats of countries like these they think their selves as superior. This happens only to capitalist states because only in this economic system there is the belief of superior and inferior beings. On the other hand, we see that there is the opposite idea which is in favour of the total abolition of all borders. The total absence of law. In a more general term anarchy believes that all the people know what the best is for them and there is not class struggle. ...read more.


There is the opinion that by living abroad so can do afterwards the best for your country by applying the ideas that you learned in a different country, in order to see your country to be the best of all the others countries. For that reason someone can be called racialist without this word to have a bad meaning. Everything is being judged under how you want to see it. If someone loves his country where he borne and was the best for her we call him "racist". But, if this man had lived abroad and then had come back to the country that was born in order to help her to develop, then we call him "man with ambitions and dreams". We all have one identity. The identity of that we are human beings. As long as we born and die with the same way, then all of us are equal and similar. New nations are not racialised. All the countries now are multicultural. This is good because through this we can have wider minds and we have the chance to do something for this world who has been tortured from the facial and religious, sometimes, differences that we have. The new generation, is ready to prepare a new, better future for our children by trying to open their minds and hearts to the others. We just have to listen carefully. ...read more.
