About The Next Nationalism

When we serve one another, we serve the nation.

When we serve America, we serve the world.

The Next Nationalism is a publication and community dedicated to recovering and advancing our shared American national identity and narrative as a unifying force, expressed through engaged citizenship.

At hinge moments in American history, prior generations have updated our understanding of the universal ideals of the Declaration of Independence. This was followed by reform of our constitutional system, culminating in a new political settlement.

At our best, a shared vision of American nationalism enables us to meet our mission:

What we owe—and how we can serve—one another;

What we owe—and how we can serve—the nation;

What the nation owes—and how we can serve—the world.

Now it’s our turn to update and give life to this vision in our present circumstances, just as prior generations have done.

My earnest aim is that The Next Nationalism community can be a gathering spot for many of us who are seeking to serve, in whatever way we can, in this time of challenge, change, and possibility.
