This article explores ways of understanding the globalization of nationalism in the twentieth century as a condition of technology from the perspective of Heidegger’s “Question Concerning Technology,” and offers the reporting in the Shantou newspaper, Lingdong Daily, as a case study of how discourses of nationalism were localized during the 1905 Chinese boycott of US goods. The 1905 boycott was one of the events linked to modern Chinese nationalism that increased political grassroots networks, and sustained successive revolutions. In order to argue that this rise of Chinese nationalism was the globalization of a technological condition, I examine the representation of technology, cognitive mapping, and shame.
