“What is a Nation?” by Ernest Renan, 1882

Ernest Renan, “What is a Nation?”, text of a conference delivered at the Sorbonne on March 11th, 1882, in Ernest Renan, Qu’est-ce qu’une nation?, Paris, Presses-Pocket, 1992.

We do not expect diverse…

Beware The Tech Utopians | Globalism 2

Beware The Tech Utopians | Globalism 2
