please help gimme the prop for this argument


Patriotism is the vigorous and enthusiastic support and love for one's country, it births out naturally and is not taught. It is not subjective at any point. The nation is nothing but a group of people coming under the same ideology by accepting the differences and denouncing hate.

It is however dangerous and unmistakably disastrous if patriotism is fed through 'nationalism'.

In the present day India ruled by a government that highly favors one particular religion, it is necessary to understand that India is a secular country is a republic democratic. People vote, people rule.

Forced patriotism is when an institution makes it a compulsion to follow their given set of practices which they feel is correct for as nation. National anthem for any citizen is an important source of deriving inspiration. But why is the cinemas being made a soft corner to take out all the punches for this forced patriotism?

There are the 'creators' of laws who themselves do not bother to stand in decorum for the national anthem, they are involved in incidents where they are on the phone or sleepy during the time it is played.

I end my beginning note by saying that patriotism is from the heart and must not be force fed.

It cannot be constitutional Forced Patriotism it is simple advertising and marketing. A military draft is a form of forced patriotism.

The fundamental argument being made is does target market advertising work?
