All three have always been a problem since the dawn of time. The only one I would hedge on is religion. I would change that to pseudo-religion (which is what most, but not all relgion is). There are people who are open-minded in their religion and in fact, it is one of the most basic tenents of mine.

i would definately agreew with this. religion is not racist but instead some religious people use it for their racist cause. same goes for nationalism, to be patriotic is not racist. to be patriotic to the extent that you have disregard for all other 'inferior' nations is.

The only time that Nationalism and Religion become issues is when extremists rise up and make trouble in the name of their specific, closed-minded ideologies. Unforutnetly, moderation is a hard sell.

i don't think nationalism and religion will be a problem.....i think, people who are so overacting as if they are lunatics but who think they are patriotic and religious are our problems......the concepts and views of these terms are really good...and i think you always read this from my posts...it really is dependent on people who implement these concepts...people who tend to abuse these concepts are the problem and not the concepts themselves.....
