For so many years we heard fake and bombastic ideologies about a perfect country, that I almost feel like I’m going out of my mind. Sadly, one more lunatic won’t make the streets cleaner. Everyone, one way or the other, has experienced deception for their country, people, life, in general, and when they realized that this happening revolves around nothing, they either revolted, and suffered for it, or resigned to the cliché reality. Now, if you start talking to someone about patriotism, he will get the prejudice, beyond that notion, known as being politically correctness. And he no longer wants to listen. Because he suffered at a certain point and because he is sick of praising or even talking about this subject. In fact, it’s not s convergence of ideas, but the relations differ, as long as patriotism, by its meaning, designates certain principles not at all ignorable. We want to be westerners. We wish we had been born somewhere else. For the most part we don’t care what happens around us or we care but we can’t do anything. We blame others for our bad situation, for the mistery, vulgarity, but we never point our questions to ourselves. Being a patriot doesn’t necessarily mean worshiping your country and everything in it. You can be a patriot in the sense of a good citizen, respectful of your parents, not ignoring the sufferance of others, showing compassion, not destroying what others have done. It’s no shame to show civic responsibility towards your country.
