Expansionist nationalism is opposed to all aspects of liberal nationalism. Most notably, expansionist nationalism rejects the right to national self-determination. Expansionist nationalism is also opposed to inclusion, diversity and social progress. Expansionist nationalism is characterised by the mindset of chauvinism and the language of jingoism. This belligerent stance towards others is at times employed by political leaders who identify the inherent advantages of creating and identifying a scapegoat.
