Foucault said the Victorians weren't puritans at all and were actually obsessed with sex

And so I wonder if something along those lines can also be said about the nationalist or so-called "anti-globalist" fervor, in particular the kind in particular that got Trump (s)elected...

The nationalist is not against "globalism" at all, but they want an unrealistic one where their nation is given preference above all other nations.

The nationalist is not concerned with purely insular affairs but is actually concerned about what is going on with the other side of the world, they want a clash of civilizations... West vs East, North vs South, White vs Dark Skinned, Christian vs Muslim, etc.

Quite simply, the concern with borders to a fault does not mean you are making your own country better, you are always looking out, you are always seeing what 'they' are doing.

So maybe instead of "nationalist" or "anti-globalist", we should start calling them for what they are... Irrational Globalist, Unworkable Globalist, but still very much a Globalist, they really are as globalist as they say others are.

4. Globalism is a rebranded term of the same far right boogeyman that has existed...

since the Birchers......the Jews, the socialists, the UN, the "sh*thole" countries as the Pig calls them, are all part of the globalist conspiracy to the nationalist.

Belonging to an international community is a betrayal of their social darwinist, hyper individualist f^ckery of the last half century.

It is the fount of the fascist conspiracy theories and scapegoating and racism.
