Interessante la nota di Daily Kos sul patriottismo in US.
Watching the celebration of America that is today’s inauguration festivities, one thing strikes – the difference between our version of patriotism and the Right’s. For the Right, it’s jingoistic “USA! USA! WE’RE NUMBER ONE AND WILL KICK YOUR ASS!” It’s alway us versus someone else. It’s confrontational.
Our version of patriotism is a celebration of what makes our nation great. It’s the diversity, our people, our communities. Rather than confrontational, it’s communitarian. We don’t need to start wars and kick someone’s ass to feel proud to be American.
Che poi è una differenza generalizzabile ed espandibile alla destra e alla sinistra in tutto il pianeta, mica solo al patriottismo dall’altra parte dell’oceano.
