Question and answer
Q: 2. How can the concept of a national identity both unite and divide people?
A: In modern times multiculturalism is instituted from the top down as an elitist ruling class tool used to play one or more racial or ethnic groups against another. [ The ensuing cultural melee serves the political designs, economic goals and power needs of elitist rulers and their sponsors. This technique was developed by Marxist ideologues who used multiculturalism in Russia to divide and
conquer resistance to the institution of a communist state. The end result of their successful takeover was the murder of thirty million humans in the Soviet Union alone. Many more elsewhere. ]

User: 2. How can the concept of a national identity both unite and divide people?

Weegy: A strong sense of national identity can unite people by making a group of individuals feel like part of a cohesive whole. [ For example, after the terrorists attacks on 9/11, this country experienced the strongest sense of national identity I have personally ever witnessed. Every car had a flag attached to the antenna, every shop had a collection jar to help fellow Americans, and so on. A strong sense of national identity helped American heal from our wounds. We were all proud to be Americans. However, all of this good feeling had a downside. People who were NOT Americans, especially Arabs, were immediately suspect, an "Us-versus-Them" mentality quickly set in. Mosques were vandalized, threats were made, and a sense of foreboding and prejudice against anyone who looks to be Middle Eastern continues to this day. ]
