  Corporate nationalism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
National capitalism or corporate nationalism is a political and economic philosophy that expects private enterprise to work mainly towards the national good, rather than solely for profit maximization.
More generally, the spirit of national capitalism can be seen in any discussion of suboptimality of corporate decision-making for the cause of the greater national well-being, or simply in the privatization of a local drinking-water plant.
Corporatization is a major aspect of corporate nationalism, a political movement begun under the autocratic rule of Napoleon III, Emperor of the French from 1852 and refined in Italy under Benito Mussolini from 1922.

 Corporatism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Political scientists may also use the term corporatism to describe a practice whereby an authoritarian state, through the process of licensing and regulating officially-incorporated social, religious, economic, or popular organizations, effectively co-opts their leadership or circumscribes their ability to challenge state authority by establishing the state as the source of their legitimacy.
at the national level the state recognizes one and only one organization (say, a national labour union, a business association, a farmers' association) as the sole representative of the sectoral interests of the individuals, enterprises or institutions that comprise that organization's assigned constituency.
The influence of other types of corporations, such as labor unions, is perceived to be relatively minor.

This use of the term "corporation" is not exactly equivalent to the restricted modern sense of the word.
Corporate in this context is intended to convey the meaning of a "body," as in corpus.
Its purpose is to reflect more medieval European concepts of a whole society in which the various parts each play a part in the life of the society, just as the various parts of the body play specific parts in the life of a body.

The age old problem of who controls the land and what it is used for is as relevant today as it was when the first human being decided land and its riches could be accumulated and that those human and nonhuman species alike who dwelled on that land could be subjugated.
The neoliberalist ideology legitimates corporate control, proposing a "free" global market, whose sole concern is profit and whose primary hindrances are social desires and environmental conservation.
Corporate globalization and capitalism are not long-term prospects for the future.

A feverish, corporate-sponsored nationalism has taken root in America at a time when the public depends on a vibrant communications culture to sustain its institutional democracy.
That the son of one of the nation's most decorated and politically entrenched former military officers should be given control of the agency that regulates the domestic news and entertainment networks--indeed the whole telecommunications industry--is something that is more imaginable in...
Powell took over as chief regulator for a corporate communications industry in the throes of a radical transformation following the Telecommunications Act of 1996, which opened the door for deregulation and sparked widespread condemnation from media activists who saw the act as an attack on the public interest function of the FCC.

 Amazon.com: Nationalism: Books: Ernest Gellner   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Gellner's theory of nationalism is quite useful in that he persuasively shows how nationalism and the concept of nations are socio-political phenomena closely tied to modernity.
His view that the concept of nation as broad community became a useful homogenizing tool for societies faced with industrialization and the ensuing urbanization, as well as economic growth and political centralization is generally plausible, at least in the European context.
Gellner's concept of national "time zones" seems based more on generalizations than a rigorous scrutiny of the various regional variants of nationalism (it's also Eurocentric, as the "time zones" are basically restricted to the territory of Europe).

New, because unlike the nationalism before it, which allows my country right or wrong, New Nationalism shirks the latter: the country cannot falter, it and its leader are, like the pontiff in Catholic theology, infallible.
Cosmopolitanism recognizes the fundamental fallacy of nationalism - "The accident of where one is born is just that, an accident" wrote Nussbaum, and the way to embrace this fact is to seek non-exclusionary morality.
Recall Foucalt: nationalism "subjectivizes" by establishing the binary of "us" and "them" and denying the context of and refusing to understand, "them." Democracy should be a committed relationship among equals, not a sham of silent oppression.

 THE NEW POLITICS OF DIFFERENCE   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Since reference to the nation is always an active and selective interpretation, national constructions are constantly in the process of assimilating, combining and revising the arbitrary signs of national identity defining its being as a unique and particular entity.
By taking "nation as a basic historical category", the main epistemological purposes of such discursive expressions are to find a possible "alternative space of modernity" and to endorse a "political anthropology of a moving nation" *.
For what appears as more obvious is that the re-valorization of smaller, subordinate nationalisms and movements of national liberation brings about the parallel growth of a defensive reaction by those big national cultures which see themselves threatened by their peripheries.

It would also be difficult to separate Peronism from corporate nationalism, for Perón nationalized Argentina's large corporations, blurring distinctions between corporations and government.
At the same time, the labor unions became corporate themselves, relinquishing the right to strike in agreements with Perón as Secretary of Welfare in the military government from 1943-45.
Peronism also lacked a strong interest in matters of foreign policy other than the belief that the political and economic influences of other nations should be kept out of Argentina and could thus be said to be somewhat isolationist.

The population polarised with the strategic inflection of the PNV and its ascription to the coalition of Lizarra (in spite of the distancing of this stance shown by the Alava nationalism).

This scenario is made even more potentially dangerous by an unprecedented exploding population of raw souls, surrounded by the incessant materialistic demands prevalent in the technologically advanced nations--or the demeaning pressure placed on the poor by the constant, daily struggle for survival in the "developing" countries.
On one hand, the population believes less and less in the false promises of old aeon politics and religion; but on the other hand, their distrust is channeled into a bitter, self-destructive and greedy passive-aggression that threatens to pull the whole world into the Abyss with them.
The destructive and alienating effects of Corporate Capitalism must be curbed by an intelligently militant refusal by the people of the earth to accept its lies and deforming effects on society.

Though not a cohesive cultural movement with manifestos and leaders, hippies expressed their desire for change with communal or nomadic lifestyles, by renouncing corporate nationalism and the Vietnam War, by embracing aspects of non-traditional religious cultures, and with criticism of Western middle class values.
Most importantly, for hippies, the twin values of peace and love were the guiding stars in the ideal constellation of their existence.
Such criticism included the views that the goverment was paternalistic, corporate industry was greedy and domineering, traditional morals were askew, and war was inhumane.

 Selling nationalism to rip off workers   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
This spate of blatant nationalism from sections of business is all the more striking because it feeds off, and into, the scaremongering of Pauline Hanson and her ilk, who imply that things are bad for ordinary people in Australia because too much profits are going overseas.
Nationalism has long been a ploy used by the bosses — and a ploy which all too often right-wing sections of the labour movement have adapted to.
The challenge is on, for trade unionists, for socialists, and for all people who desire an end to this corporate system, to openly denounce nationalism as the betrayal of other workers that it is, and to campaign for genuine global justice.
