Книга Миколи Рябчука «Лексикон націоналіста та інші есеї» саме з тих книг, які вкрай потрібні українському суспільству. Ми ніяк не можемо стати на шлях творення своєї держави, не можемо створити умови для накопичення українського суспільного капіталу. Не можна сказати, що ми не стали на цей шлях, але ми не маємо того необхідного мінімуму, який дає ту динаміку коли країна стає інноваційною, прогресивною, системною і відповідно демократичною. Це сталося з різних причин. Але головне змінити ситуацію і використати свій коридор можливостей для динамічного руху вперед. Співпрацюючи з іншими народами на принципах здорового націоналізму. Розуміючи, що при відсутності націоналістів у XVIII-XIX століттях не було б сучасної Німеччини, а без націоналіста Пілсудського не бачили б ми розвинутої Польщі. Однією з причин того, що ми поки що шкутильгаємо на шляху розбудови власної держави є те, що мало читаємо книг зокрема Миколи Рябчука.
