Nationalism? What are your views?
I think that Tolkien viewed nationalism as a very important idea. In the his book "The Hobbit" he portrays the dwarves as very loyal to their nation and people. In this way he shows that without nationalism there would be no loyalty and therfore many more wars between people in the same country. He seems to want to state that without naitonalism war would be inevitable.
