Nationalism vs patriotism

From The Panel, 4:42 pm on 12 November 2018

French President Macron has called out nationalism in a speech commemorating Armistice Day.

In front of other leaders like Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin and Recep Erdogan, Mr Macron said nationalism is a betrayal of patriotism and said isolationism is a grave error. He urged his fellow leaders to place peace above all else.

The panelists discuss the difference between nationalism and patriotism, and whether the former is really that bad for countries.
