Celebration Of Homeland
What Is Homeland?
Homeland is defined and understood in many ways.
The place of your birth. Where you allegiances are. Where the bones of your ancestors are buried. The essence of your culture, traditions, lifestyle and beliefs. Homeland is sacred to the citizens and merit preservation. How do you define HOMELAND?
Every Homeland is Blessed
Royalty in terms of traditional designations of power, governance, authority and privileges noted by class, caste, and hierarchy systems. These groups generally exhibit varying levels of deference to lower classes or levels of people and groups within their social structure.
Understanding national Homeland definitions can also be determined by The Power Elite as noted in the 1956 book by sociologist C. Wright Mills who called attention to the interwoven interests of national leaders within the military, corporate and political elements of their society. Mills suggested that ordinary citizens were relatively powerless subjects in the national power tradition. Who makes decisions for the masses in your homeland? Who controls media and what you can view and read? How are dissidents treated and civil conflicts resolved?

Why You Should Read This Book
There are more questions than answers for those seeking belonging and others trying to maintain the way things were. Both conditions are complicated. Where do we turn for solutions?

When these conditions are upset, there may be conflicts and judgments that test the nations already challenged by status assignments and preferential classes. What must we know?
We Must Know - Homeland Rules What Holds Nations Together
Universal truths that impact all people in all nations bond or tear them apart. Including:
When most of the people look like you.
The history of each group in the nation, their culture, language and traditions. Their enemies.
The importance of ethnic ways of life or "familiars" that they seek to recreate regardless of residence.
Power dynamics within and outside of nations perceived to challenge existence.
Human nature that demands that your group comes first is served, is maintained over all others.
Nationalism and love of homeland may not diminish when immigrants move to other homelands.
ALL LEAVE HOME TO GET SOMETHING, SOMEPLACE ELSE. Not to bring something to somebody else.
World Peace is contrary to the history of humans.
