Nationalism in Hegel. I, personally, like the political oriented of HLTV's forums: the process of the discussions, insults, arguing, topics, development.... etc; but one shall just imagine, this, without showing off the User Country Flags . Hegel said there's a consciousness where the only thing that's left for them is their country. But i think this is used not only where them, the Empty Subject (for using G. Agamben Term), feel left or lack about, but where they feel where to start on, or what is their only 'real' content to start talking 'reality'. As L Wittgenstein said: there's a life which the only use they take of their language is, what their language give them. (Imagine an 'empty guy' without the a-priori rational structure of his/her language, he/she would go crazy!!, just as without a country!).
