Internationalism

Wikimedia disambiguation page

Internationalism is a political principle which transcends nationalism and advocates a greater political or economic cooperation among nations and people. Typically, internationalism is seen as the antithesis of nationalism, which is the principle towards identifying with a singular country or culture. Internationalists are typically critical of nationalism, and sometimes patriotism. Internationalism is typically associated with the political left, principally that of Marxism and anarchism.

  • Our country is the world — our countrymen are all mankind.
  • The proletarians have nothing to lose but their chains. They have a world to win.
    WORKING MEN OF ALL COUNTRIES, UNITE!
    • Karl Marx, conclusion of The Communist Manifesto
  • If the emancipation of the working classes requires their fraternal concurrence, how are they to fulfill that great mission with a foreign policy in pursuit of criminal designs, playing upon national prejudices, and squandering in piratical wars the people’s blood and treasure?
  • Imagine there's no countries,
    It isn't hard to do,
    Nothing to kill or die for,
    And no religion, too,
    Imagine all the people
    Living life in peace...
