There is patriotism and then there is nationalism. If you're talking about nationalism, then yeah, i agree.
Countries don't really mean much except for what these countries do to the people. I would prefer all humans be treated with dignity and human rights not just some people in some place on the map that we called a "Country"
Maybe not a disease but not worth the trouble.
It turns into Nationalism. Kinda like what happened with Hitler and the Nazis...
Patriotism, no. Nationalism, yes under the right circumstances and when there's too much confidence in government.
Nationalism and Patriotism are two entirely different things. Patriotism is the pride in one's country, while nationalism is the belief that your country is superior in every way therefore all authors rare inferior scum.
It really comes in handy when watching the Olympics or any sporting event where its nations vs nations win-or-go-home
You should be proud pf your country.
If you don't like us, then leave!
