Video: "The truth about our national identity? It's made up."

"Nationality feels powerful, especially today. But the idea of identifying with millions of strangers just based on borders is relatively new. We explain why it was invented — and how it changed the world."

Maybe its the worlds we individually choose to live in? Seems most people I know identify physically 1st as 'human'. National stories arise around mentality, poverty, conflict. But what do I know. I look forward to another 60 years of not knowing Jack from Rocky. Yet I know my Jackie Stallone
