About "Philosophies of the Resolution (INFO)"
The contentious 2016 presidential election cycle mounted a (shall we say, “big league”) assault on the English language—neutral words assumed potent connotations as their users hurled them at one another. Consequently, depending upon one’s position on the political spectrum, the words “nationalism” and “globalism” carry substantial baggage as both political parties and the media have construed them to straddle political fault lines. This article endeavors to penetrate beyond the mere political sentiments engendered by the concepts in NCFCA’s 2017-2018 Lincoln-Douglas resolution and investigate their philosophical underpinnings, tracing their lineage back to their original thinkers.
