Like their masters, dogs also lavish on dog apparel. However, they need to realise that, as I have already pointed out, the destruction of the nation in the sense of a cultural value is counterproductive, because the consequence of this will not be the end of primitive nationalism, but, on the contrary, the strengthening of it. We are already experiencing this today: among a growing segment of the nation as a social group primitive slogans have taken the place of cultural values.

The Bravos and Indios are part of a circuit of Mexican-American fast-pitch softball teams, established in the central U.S. in the 1930s and '40s, when the game was among the most popular amateur sports in the country. The ballast of the past is similarly indispensable to the sense of American national identity, and it is something quite distinct from the dualism of descent and consent.

I mean, to say that an act which allows you to arrest people and put them in jail without lawyers, even Americans, and simply take the series of amendments to our Constitution and put them away for a while, if that be patriotism, then I resign. In America, patriotism and nationalism are not locked in mortal conflict, though they are often in tension.

Patriotic songs were once popular and were often sung in schools, churches, and sporting events, they were a part of everyday life in America, until the mid 1960's when they slowly and very gradually started to disappear from our society.

Alexis de Tocqueville (1805-1859) was the first to recognize this new form of patriotism, or at least to speak of it. In his Democracy in America (1835-1840), Tocqueville argued that this patriotism was more rational than the simple love of one's native land; this patriotism, he said, was born of enlightenment" and grows with the exercise of rights." Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865), in his 1852 eulogy on the American statesman Henry Clay (1777-1852), declared that Clay loved his country partly because it was his own country, but mostly because it was a free country; and he worked zealously for its advancement, prosperity and glory, because he saw in such the advancement, prosperity and glory of human liberty, human rights, and human nature" (Lincoln 1852 1989, p. 264).

That many people who are not intellectuals or academics, including anti-war protestors … If you look at the history of court cases in the United States, there are many working class people who are in the tradition of the Twain piece on patriotism and Caroline Kennedy's book, and Whitman saying, each person in that one way that is his or her own, that individualism is not without also a side that's critical.
