A vestigial method of thinking in this day and age that benefits the patriot more than the nation.

Segregation based on group associations (and in this case, one's country) leads to inevitable hostility amongst peoples of different nationalities. There is no exception to this rule in any form of pride derived by one's group association.

If one is proud to belong to the Triangle Tribe, then those that belong to the Circle Tribe will, without exception, be made to loathe themselves. For they, by definition, are not a member of the Triangle Tribe, and are therefore, lacking in the virtues bestowed upon members of that group, and that group only.

It is feasible, therefore, to conclude that those that blindly support their country simply because they are members of it do so out of desperation. For revered historical patriots have always opposed the controlling institution in favor of the people. This is why patriotism is a flawed concept: People must protect and fight for the people who then belong to the nation, not the other way around.

Albert Einstein Patriotism Quotes

  "Nationalism is an infantile disease. It is the measles of mankind."

"Nationalism, on my opinion, is nothing more than an idealistic rationalization for militarism and aggression."

"He who joyfully marches to music rank and file, has already earned my contempt. He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would surely suffice. This disgrace to civilization should be done away with at once. Heroism at command, how violently I hate all this, how despicable and ignoble war is; I would rather be torn to shreds than be a part of so base an action. It is my conviction that killing under the cloak of war is nothing but an act of murder."

"Unthinking respect for authority is the greatest enemy of truth"
