Word Web supplies 4 definitions for nationalism.
Wed Sep 5, 2018 8:52am

1. Love of country and willingness to sacrifice for it

2. The doctrine that your national culture and interests are superior to any other

3. The aspiration for national independence felt by people under foreign domination

4. The doctrine that nations should act independently (rather than collectively) to attain their goals

Your concentration is on their number 2 definition.

I agree with your basic assessment of the 2 terms with the number 2 definition above applied to nationalism.

Nationalism is:

“Our Country! In her intercourse with foreign nations may she always be in the right; but right or wrong, our country!”

Patriotism is:

“My country, right or wrong; if right, to be kept right; and if wrong, to be set right.”
