Each of these words imply a lot of political, social, economical and psychological elements. So it's rather difficult to give a simpe explanation that would fit all of these words and what they imply.
But take nationalism, state, etc. These concepts imply identity and the will of individuals and groups of individuals to gather assemble under a common identity they share. I do not think nationalism in itself is a bad thing. In my field of study, nationalism is often considered as a pejorative word. But I disagree. Right now there are historicaly dominated groups fighting to rebuild their common identity. Natives, females, minorities, etc. And in a way, nationalism if it doesn't imply chauvinism, racism and a feeling of superiority or even supremacy shouldn't be considered as a bad thing. Right now in provinces and regions like Quebec in Canada or Catalonia in Spain, there are strong nationalist movements and these are fighting to rebuild and to increase the status of historicaly dominated nations.
As for states. I think they still need to exist today. Your picture suggests some kind of world-wide communist or anarcho-communist global system. Of course, in an ideal world minorities wouldn't suffer from the will of majorities. But as for now, we see how natives, linguistic or ethnic minorities get threated even in the "most democratic countries" (and I use the word democracy loosely here...) and I think that having these groups somewhat separated, or at least having decentralized political instances could help them get their interests respected a little more. I'm not favoring some kind of ethnonationalist states limiting contacts between people, for this would favor chauvinism and probably wars and missunderstanding of other cultures. So states... not ideal... but kind of necessary... at least in our world.
Anyway, not going to saturate the Metal Hell with political and sociological debates :P If you want to join the Metal Hell, list us a 10 bands from your library. I do want to inform you before you do so that you should avoid deathcore, metalcore and the likes when making your list. Thanks :)
