I am a dreamer. I know so little of real life that I just can’t help re-living such moments as these in my dreams, for such moments are something I have very rarely experienced. I am going to dream about you the whole night, the whole week, the whole year.

If two points are destined to touch, the universe will always find a way to make the connection - even when all hope seems to be lost. Certain ties cannot be broken. They define who we are - and who we can become. Across space, across time, among paths we cannot predict - nature always finds a way.

Editors Note: I don’t think ALL nationalism is inherently bad (see ethnic nationalism), but when connected to the State, it propagates an irrational sense of superiority over other peoples and ways of life insofar that it is willing to use war — and all the dehumanization therein — to gain hegemony. The same “identity creating” force of nationalism is the same force that erases the identities of millions of peoples, creating instead a pseudo-monolithic whole by dismembering or compressing a thousand narratives into one. In short, it fosters a false sense of unity in a multitude of ethnic diversity, eventually acting to erase that diversity. This is what the State does when it can use nationalism, even when repelling colonization, it functions the same.
