I can sit in a pub and have a chat with a polish bloke 5 mins later a French fella then an Italian great fucking nation!! Its a weird ol' time right now, people are immediately suspicious of any national pride at all due to negative connotations associated to it but I don't think being proud of your nation and thinking it is superior are the same thing, I think your nation your surroundings, they're a part of who you are, you can't change them any more than you can change your race, its kinda your identity. How can you not love the land you live on, without it you wouldn't be alive in a very direct sense i.e. you eat of its fruits, spend its money, breathe its air. None of this is to say you should be blind to its faults or fuck ups, to the contrary I think someone who truly loves their country is duty bound to point out when its fucking up, otherwise things don't ever get better and why would you want that for something you love. Its difficult for me to not love this place though, don't really know anything else.
