How Patriotic Are You?

Sup Pit,

How Patriotic are you? How much do you love your country? Would you fight to protect it? Do you love the people that live in it; your neighbours, friends, family etc etc

Scale of 1-10 poll coming soon and put down what country you're in when you post.

I'm about an 8 or 9, I love my country. (New Zealand)

Not very. I don't love the people overall that live here. I love my friends and family.

I find patriotism based on where I'm born to be silly but I cannot deny I myself have at least a bit of patriotism in me. But it's hardly based on my heritage or any idea of Sweden being superior. It's most likely I'd fight for my ideology or my friends and what I believe in. And that would've been the same in any country.

I sincerely hope not I'd have to go to war for Sweden, I'd be a terrible soldier.

I'm from two different countries (who both happen to make fun of each other all the time), so I don't really know which side to take...


The fact that I hate them both should say something though.

i dunno. as an average citizen, i've always found it hard to feel any kind of true love for a country as big as America.

I'm just not into the whole patriotism thing in general.

I first read the thread title as "How Pathetic Are You?"

My bad.... I dunno about my patriotism though, I suppose I'm mildly patriotic in terms of expressing concern for the welfare of my country and others. It's whatever though really... I'm leaning more towards apathy than anything else really.

I've always wondered why people thought that. I just don't see any reason why I shouldn't be proud of New Zealand.

I love living in Australia, but I hate our pathetic excuses for politicians who run the country.

I just wish we weren't so hard on immigrants. They appreciate the country more so than the natives half the time.

You can be patriotic without being nationalistic.

+1

Don't know which country you're talkin about, but that certainly applies to Australia.

I probably shouldn't start talking about refugees though, cos I won't stfu for an hour or so

I'm glad to be living in Belgium despite of all the bullshit and hypocrisy in our non-existing government, however I too feel that patriotism or nationalism is not the ideal way to think. I feel more like a member of Europe or even the entire world.

i agree, generally patriotism seems to equal "i love amurica, fuk them towelheads, amurica is the best country int eh planet, murica, murica..." et cetera.




feeling pride for a body of land just because you live on that body of land makes no sense to me whatsoever.




edit: just using stereotypical american patriots as an example here, europeans do the the same thing(more or less).
