Full Idea

While Liberal Nationalists push liberalism in a particularist and communitarian direction, Constitutional Patriots emphasise its universalistic and cosmopolitan aspects.

Gist of Idea

Liberal Nationalism is more communitarian, and Constitutional Patriotism more cosmopolitan

Book Reference

A Reaction

So many attractive qualities to choose from! A tolerant community ought to be cosmopolitan. Being universalistic should not entail a neglect of the particular. Etc.
