    Imagine there’s no countries; it isn’t hard to do
    Too many to love or die for, or give charity to
    Imagine all the people living life alone.
    You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one.
    I hope some day you’ll be loyal, and our countrymen will be as one.

    Imagine there’s no countries; it isn’t hard to do
    Nothing to kill or die for, and no religion too
    Imagine all the people living life in peace.
    You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one.
    I hope some day you’ll join us, and the world will be as one.

    The is the best analysis of nationalism that I’ve seen. Well done Professor Haidt. It’s too bad hardly anyone read it- a lot of pain could have been avoided if some of the prescriptions you end with were taken more seriously.
