Hello, everyone! I’m new here. I hope to put up a better introductory post soon, but until then, hi! I’m Vigs.
Since today is Independence Day here in the US, I thought it’d be a good time to talk about patriotism. A lot of people regard patriotism as a virtue…but many of those people are pretty awful. Personally, I think that “My country, right or wrong” isn’t a very constructive position. I think the US does some things right, but a lot of things wrong, and I spend a lot more time criticizing the wrong things than praising the right things.
Do you love your country? Why, or why not? Is there a difference between patriotism and nationalism?
