Nmah P. E


My efforts in this research work have been geared towards unravelling the motivating factors
behind United States of American “America first” or “ideological patriotism” or “white
nationalism” “white nationalist consciousness” rather than “ideological globalization”. I
observed that the controversies posed a threat to technological transfer, political and
economic development of the developing countries. Findings showed also the strengths and
weaknesses of “America first” or “ideological patriotism” vis-à-vis “ideological
globalization”. The objective of this research work is to present a way forward for the two
ideologies. The research work recommended that the “America first” or “ideological
patriotism vis-à-vis “ideological globalization” should be human-oriented in nature
considering the mind of God for the poor.
