Are you a nationalist or an internationalist? I personally am an internationalist. Nationalism is equivalent to racism. It is grouping people together and saying one group is naturally better in some way than another group. However borders are artificial and man made. In reality we are all part of a human species and where you are born does not change your genetics. Many times people will say their country has certain values like liberty or freedom. To them I would say that all people want liberty and freedom, and it is not specifically values that belong to their country.
