Nationalism can be seen as nothing but a spectacle on the grandest scale, a civilized corruption of what 'nation' actually means and with which the word finds its *kinship*: kin, gene(-sis)(-tic), indigenous, nature, natal, native, etc. This denotes an autochthonous relationship to place and people, rather than an ideological imposition/agreement. An illustration may be found in, or rather, as, US history: the *actual* nations we categorize loosely as 'Native Americans' or 'American Indians' were destroyed by the pseudo-'nation' (founded upon ideological bases) of United States.
As dot points out, this is an important distinction to make as well as BAA's, because ideological 'nationalism' is spectacular, stupifying, deceitful, socially stratifying and rigid (who may be excluded/included; inside/outside; etc).
One reason I desire anarchy, is that I desire the freedom to find, and spend time around others (humans and non-humans), that my relations may become as autochthonous as possible for a domesticated person. This is important to me also because I make the distinction between *anarchy* and *anarchism* along these lines, the latter of which smacks of too much ideology much of the time...as well as the possibility of 'nationalism' lying in wait, though one founded on 'workers' or some other idealization.
I desire a world where not only people and ideas speak incessantly as they do now, but our very places do as well and thus becomes alive to us again.
