Nationalism was a main product of the French Revolution; it had an enormous effect on 19th- century Europe. Nationalism evolved from cultural unity in language, history and territory. Through this common cultural unity, nationalists attempted to create a similar political unity. Nationalism is the belief that an ethnic group has a right to statehood and emphasized collective unity. It emerged from two main ideologies, Romanticism and Liberalism. Romanticism’s intrinsic idea was the assertion of nationalism
face of liberal democracies worldwide. As Himmelfarb points out, the holocaust was an entirely unprovoked event. With that being said, the future will always have new unprovoked events and ideas occurring. Some may be so influential, that they will impact certain countries and perhaps introduce new and better (or worse) ideologies.
