So Wittner thinks that nationalism is on the decline. I doubt it. The empirical evidence from elections is not strong enough yet to make that claim. Maybe it will become clear but it is not yet. And just because we see how the world’s problems are global in nature, transcending national border, doesn’t mean that voters are going to think of it that way. People can remain oblivious beyond all limits.
