I have wanted to post this thread up earlier, BUT I think after what I heard earlier after the 4th, that NOW is the better time to post this. I noticed that quite a bit of you guys were DISGUSTED with all the patriotism and colors on the boards. So I pose to EVERYBODY that comes on to this thread to post their views and philosophies on Nationalism and Patriotism. For example, I am a beliver in what I have dubbed "The Crusade". As a Crusader, I despise Nationalism as it stands in the way of a "True" global community. I also believe that NO ONE should be proud of the country they come from. AS IF they had anything to do with being born in a particular country. Too many people get excited about being an American or whatever, What the hell did they do to be so damn proud, besides having the fortune/misfortune of being born. Nationalism creates seperatist sentiment, and false pride. As a sidenote, Why do people like to challenge educated professionals in a particular field when the challengers have no background in the field that they are challenging????
