Where we are born is part of our identity, by being patriotic we accept that we are part of a larger community and that we are willing to contribute to the benifit of that community.

That fact that there are different countries in the world gives the world a sort of capitalistic appeal, every country is competing to be the best country and so they constantly aim to improve themselves.

Patriotism is one of the most retarded and childish ideas that still manages to permeate popular culture as a perceived virtue, even though it is a baseless and undeserved pride derived from the fallacy that being born within the same imaginary borders makes two people's individual achievements somehow shared, despite no mutual involvement from either party.

One of the most sensible statements I've read - a breath of fresh air. Up vote for you! = )

And on a more serious note as an extension to your argument: Patriotism is not only unfounded, it is also dangerous - a step on the path to nationalism but also a barrier to justice within the international community. I'll explain:

A patriotic US citizen might feel that the withdrawl of US troops from Vietnam, Afghanistan or Iraq is an embarrassment. Similarly, a patriotic Brit might feel that the return of the Falklands to Argentina is a mistake. In both cases, patriotism is a barrier to justice - a very real barrier if patriotism runs rampant amongst the political elite.

No, fools, Anarchronist is completely right, and i agree with him 100% Imagine if there were no borders. You think that suddenly, if you cross a 1cm line, everyone changes..? Nope, not at all, we're all just one of the same species!

I gota say you have struck upon a long forgotten point there. In our days it's "if some people do something wrong, it must be the whole country..." Some Americans do stupid stuff= Americans are stupid. Some Iranians blow up some stuff= All Iranians are terrorists e.t.c. Everyone seems to think that if someone is from a different country, then they're completely different as a human being. Of course you get good and bad people, and of course cultures differ, but we all think pretty much alike, so why can't we all get on?! ( Religion..?!)

People should embrace one another and forget about walls and borders.
