The Perversion of Patriotism

Slowly catching up on some reading, and came across the article below from the Editors of America. It’s well worthy reading if only for its last paragraph:

Patriotism is gratitude for and pride in the gifts of one’s nation, not an assertion of a nation’s indefectibility or destined greatness. That, in fact, is idolatry.
