The Guardian: Patriotic “New Nationalism” is Required to Drive Solidarity and Acceptance of Climate Action | Watts Up With That?

According to Guardian author, we need to re-awaken the spirit of social imperialism, like Bismark's German social security programmes or Theodore Roosevelt's "New Nationalism", to create broad acceptance of big government green new deal style efforts to rescue Capitalism from itself.

In fact, the origins of the British welfare state lie very largely in the social imperialism movement in the years before 1914. The supporters of this movement were an extraordinarily varied bunch: H G Wells, George Bernard Shaw and Sidney and Beatrice Webb on the left; liberal imperialists such as Winston Churchill and William Beveridge; patriotic writers including Rudyard Kipling and Arthur Conan Doyle; imperial bureaucrats such as Lord Milner and John Buchan; and soldiers including Field Marshal Lord Roberts. Their thinking echoed, in key respects, Bismarck's social security programme in Germany and the reformist "new nationalism" of Theodore Roosevelt in the US.
