I’m Sick and Tired of This Thing Called “Patriotism” by William Blum

July 3, 2018

History is replete with examples where patriotism has not been a particularly honorable trait. It has been and continues to be an excuse used to perpetuate all imaginable forms of evil in terms of how people treat (or should I say mistreat) others in the course of their lives. Often, “patriotism” brings out the worst in people while they claim it as exemplifying the pure nobility of their motives, as misguided and cruel as they appear. I would prefer to be known as a genuinely good human being to being a patriot any day. – RJC
