‘Nation’ is synonymous with “ethnic group,” defined as a group of people united by common ancestry, culture, and language. But ‘nation’ is NOT synonymous with “state” (a political entity) or “country” (a territory).
So, “ethno” nationalism is a pointless tautology. It’s like saying “natio-nationalism.”
And by definition a multi-racial conglomeration is not a nation, so civic “nationalism” doesn’t exist either. It’s a sneaky oxymoron used to trick people into supporting/embracing globalism.
‘Nationalism’ itself is just politics that seek to advance the interest of a nation, particularly (but not exclusively) gaining or maintaining an ethnic homeland and maintaining identity by promoting cultural traditions.
