Patriotism -


The Nation Magazine is requesting that readers write what patriotism means to them.   It is something to sit and think about.

I find myself with this, idealistic as it may be:

Patriotism is the Golden Rule applied to a nation, the knowing that nourishing and educating each individual to their fullest capabilities benefits the nation as a whole.  Honoring an inner moral compass leads to kindness and care.

Thanks to Torpidai, I am modifying the above, to say, "Patriotism is the Golden Rule applied to a global society, a planet, a solar system, an honoring of all worlds."
