"I am against any nationalism, even in the guise of mere patriotism. Privileges based on position and property have always seemed to me unjust and pernicious, as did any exaggerated personality cult." -Albert Einstein
'Nationalism is an infantile disease. It is the measles of mankind.'
A little dumb if you ask me. I love being an inhabitant of the world; I enjoy learning about our history —both the horrible and the great. On that note, I love my country’s history, I love where I was born, and I don’t put it in any high regard than someone living in Canada would, or Italy, or Spain.
Patriotism doesn’t have to become a dirty word. Someone who refuses to travel because of some blind disdain for other strips of land on planet earth is just an asshole, not a Patriot.
