Patriotism

“Patriotism is your conviction that this country is superior to all others because you were born in it.”

George Bernard Shaw, 1856—1950




While this may be true, why would I think another country is superior? An even better question: what makes me enter into the decision-making process concerning the question of countries being lesser or greater than others? Why is this a necessary question for the average citizen to contemplate? Is it good or bad that I think this? Is it good or bad that a citizen in another country would think the same thing about their own country?
