If you resist totalitarianism, you are not a Patriot

I’m tired of all the “you’re not a patriot if....” nonsense. You know what? I’m not a patriot. I loathe patriotism and nationalism as a disease of the heart. It causes hatred and war as much as religion or race. You want to talk about an “ism”, talk about humanism. The nation-state is a dying political entity. It will take a while, maybe more than our lifetimes, but it will die. The sooner the better.
