Globalization vs Nationalism

The question is not and can never be one or the other. It must always be both. Nationalism is what lets us keep our identity, to have individualism in this vast and quickly shrinking world. However, there is no way that one can survive being completely nationalist here. It will lead to isolation and to eventual death (of the economy at least). Globalization allows one to grow and expand. It is what allows one to stand tall in all of their nationalist glory. It opens up new markets and new opportunities. Hence, it can never be Globalization or Nationalism. It must always be both. The question is how much of each?
