I support the right of national self-determination for oppressed nations.

There is a limited role in which nationalism can be a revolutionary force, namely in struggling against imperialist domination.

Of course in imperialist nations, nationalism takes on a very ugly and reactionary appearance. It is concerned that the global totem pole is not re-carved, that the oppressed nations "stay in their place," and chuavanistically declares that its superiority not be challenged.
