national pride!
    #588598 - 09/25/11 12:26 PM (6 years, 1 month ago)

do you have it?  How do you show it?  Do you care?  Do you think it's a good thing?

No. I don't. No. Potentially.

I don't have national pride because I feel the negativity coming from my nation outweighs the positivity. I want to love my country, but they make it exceedingly hard.

"At least its not XXXXX" isn't a valid argument IMO. Thats like stepping in dog shit and saying "at least its not human shit". You still stepped in shit.

I do however have hometown pride. I love my town and I hate it when people talk shit about it and come through and ruin it with litter and stuff. Its easier for me to love something so small an intimate. I know almost everyone. I don't like everyone, but I know them. And the people here combined with the beauty that is naturally here makes it very loveable. And hateable at the same time I guess.


--------------------
Of course it's happening inside your head.
Why should that mean it isn't real?

Quote:

Efforts to trace back to natural rather than political causes the violent antagonisms existing between nations today are altogether mistaken. All the symptoms of supposedly innate antipathy between peoples that are customarily offered in evidence exist also within each individual nation. The Bavarian hates the Prussian; the Prussian, the Bavarian. No less fierce is the hatred existing among individual groups within both France and Poland. Nevertheless, Germans, Poles, and Frenchmen manage to live peacefully within their own countries. What gives the antipathy of the Pole for the German and of the German for the Pole a special political significance is the aspiration of each of the two peoples to seize for itself political control of the border areas in which Germans and Poles live side by side and to use it to oppress the members of the other nationality. What has kindled the hatred between nations to a consuming fire is the fact that people want to use the schools to estrange children from the language of their fathers and to make use of the courts and administrative offices, political and economic measures, and outright expropriation to persecute those speaking a foreign tongue. Because people are prepared to resort to violent means in order to create favorable conditions for the political future of their own nation, they have established a system of oppression in the polyglot areas that imperils the peace of the world.

I have lots of pride to be from Québec, none from Canada, I will always say to people while I travel that I am from Québec and not Canada. I do care since we have been fucked over by fed gov. so many times over the past (and present), we  should already be a country, with 2 referendums to separate, the last one ended 49.42% "Yes" to 50.58% "No". Just by magic, the whole votes of a region who were separatists dominant got "lost"...

I know it is not every Québecers who think like me, but I have to say that one day it will happen, and we will stop being a colony

I might have some national pride if I lived in a nation who actually cared about the inhabitants and whose government actually tried to help its citizens instead of its corporations

I hate Australia for their internet blacklist.

But I live in America so i don't care. I have pride in America because of who some former Americans have been, hell I even have Kansas pride. I just don't enjoy the current status quo and i have no pride in the current state of things.

I'll be pretty politically active on subjects I care about though once i have a job and a vehicle to drive me to protests etc...

Even so they do censor media that enters their country and/or ban.

The Australian internet black list certainly exists, and as above mentioned the ban video games.

I'm to against censorship to really think that's a good idea.

But I'm shutting up because that's not the theme of this thread.
