Nationalism is not the same as patriotism


Let the Kennedy brothers teach you.  Link here.
Hat tip to Tom DiLorenzo writing on lewrockwell.com.

Nationalism celebrates force; it frolics in force; international status is nurtured and grows with force. Force expands the nation’s control over its own people every
time it is successfully applied to an enemy; therefore pure nationalists seek enemies to
destroy. Nationalism looks beyond the nation’s borders for opportunities to expand the
nation’s influence—be it economic, ideological, commercial and/or military influence or,
when the opportunity allows, not just influence but absolute control. Notice that this new
“nation of force” will ultimately look and act more like an empire than a simple nation.

Patriotism, on the other hand, is local; it looks inward to a community with local
traditions. Patriots see the nation as a means to protect local communities that compose
the nation. Patriots are members of local communities and their primary desire is
simply to be “let alone.” Patriots view people residing outside of the nation’s borders as
possible trading partners in which they can engage in voluntary exchange—an
exchange in which both sides gain. Patriots rally to the flag to defend the nation
because the nation is necessary to preserve and defend local communities.

Get to know your neighbors.  Befriend a cop.  It can only help.
