"Man is the only Patriot. He sets himself apart in his own country, under his own flag, and sneers at the other nations, and keeps multitudinous uniformed assassins on hand at heavy expense to grab slices of other people's countries, and keep them from grabbing slices of his. And in the intervals between campaigns he washes the blood of his hands and works for 'the universal brotherhood of man' with his mouth."
"Patriotism is the conviction that your country is superior
to all others because you were born in it."
—George Bernard Shaw
“Patriotism doesn’t automatically equal conservatism.”
