Is liberal support for globalism another symptom of their self-hatred, i.e., an attempt to destroy an identity they hate?

As the definition below shows, part of liberal self-hatred is hatred for one's national identity, so perhaps liberals support for globalism and super-states is because they dissolve national identity, basically 'killing off' the identity they hate?

"The term self-hatred can refer to either a strong dislike for oneself, one's own actions, or a strong dislike or hatred of one's own race, gender, nationality, sexual orientation, or any other group of which one may be a member. When used in the latter context it is generally defined as hatred of one's identity based on the demographic in question, as well as a desire to distance oneself from this identity. This tends to involve welcoming and accepting antagonistic views towards one's group from other groups and promoting these views to members of own group, while rejecting any opposing view with uses of argumentum ad hominem (e.g. 'racist', 'extremist', 'sexist') rather than reasoned arguments, whether the personal attacks stand or not."

    Liberalism doesn't exist without antagonistic viewpoints. There is a reason why the media tries so hard to create a highly specific narrative to attach to each and every far less specific type of event. Example, after the Orlando attack, the liberal narrative immediately shifted away from Islamic terrorism and towards LGBT rights and gun control. Another example would be officer involved shootings around the country. The liberal narrative never addresses the cause of the shooting (i.e. Michael Brown), and immediately tries to create a narrative of a "racist" police officer and then attaches that narrative to the entire rest of the Caucasian population. Without this antagonistic train of thought, liberalism in its entirety falls apart. Progressive taxation, affirmative action, global warming, LGBT rights, socialization of private industry; none of this exists without this antagonistic frame of reference that seems to be the common denominator between all liberals.

    You think national identity is self-identity? How collectivist of you.

    Do you hate yourself so much that you need to justify your existence by identifying yourself as a member of a group?

    No, globalism means supporting the entire world including one's identity.

    That's a bit of a stretch. I don't think you have much basis for this claim. It's all just your personal speculation.

    Btw this is Lexington. You stupid sh'it, trying to block me haha. You don't decide when I answer your questions or not. Only *I* decide that, you dumbf'uck.

    Not really. It's the massive family savings accounts among working classes.

    Cuz Socialist Japan provides national health care, open domestic bank collusion, fixed staple food prices as subsidized nationally, and covers all worker transportation costs ongoing for ALL companies. Socialist Germany is nearly the carbon copy.

    And Socialist Japan has $35 trillion in national savings, mostly held by households. You are unfortunately unable to get an image of this. That's why you ask stupid questions.
