currencies

I remembered a bloke
telling me that if one had 10 000 Belgian francs
he would lose all his money by changing it
in all the currencies
I thought,
it is the same for the human nature
if you had to change your nationality for every and all other
nationalities, you would lose a certain amount of your value
you had in your original nationality
due to the nationalism of each country

Yes, you are apt to become culturally diluted. Given the objectionable aspects of nationality (jingoism, bigotry), such dilution could be a good thing.

In you poem Animal Love you have this line:
"you make love like an animal but you wanna be loved back"... and I thought of it when I was reading this poem. Especially in connection with "you would lose a certain amount of your value you had in your original nationality" for I believe that the value of nationality must be based upon respect and reciprocation: Give to your Nation and receive respect for your Nationality?
