Vlassis G. Rassias on cultural and political monotheism (ENG SUB)

The ethnic Hellenic writer Vlassis G. Rassias on the different facets of monotheism (from 2016). In this video, he deals with the monotheistic problem from a Hellenic point of view, presenting the Hellenes‘ understanding of monotheism, which, to them, is not only religion (Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Neopaganism etc.), but also culture (Occident, Romiosyni) and politics (conservatism, liberalism, nationalism, internationalism).
«As a genuine invention of monotheistic absolutism, nationalism expressed and expresses itself as a consistent demand for complete cultural, religious and linguistic homogeneity and unity. […]. It is not the enemies of collective freedom and autonomy (who have been the enemies of the ethnicities) that have been declared as ‹enemies,› but any kind of otherness that is currently considered to be a cultural, religious, ethnic or ‹racial› pollution due to a sick collective mentality. In contrast to natural (ancient) ‹ethnism,› which can express its diversity / alterity in a positive way (and at the same time deeply respects the diversity / alterity of all the others who express themselves in the same way), […] nationalism considers its […] ‹race› to be more important and superior than any other, and therefore it can only define its diversity / alterity in a negative way.»

«The nationalist disease is the twin brother of internationalism and stands outside of the real game of history. The dipole nationalism ≠ internationalism is a construction. [Nationalism] has nothing to do with the real ethnos and the real ethnic identity, it takes advantage of people’s love for their homeland, their patriotism, and fishes in muddy waters.»
