Mother Russia is an alcoholic? I never would have guessed that.IMHO Patriotism is not about being proud of, but about loving. You love your mother even if you are not proud of her, even if she's alcoholic, or something else not really appreciated by the society. You still love her, patriotism is the same thing. You just love your country whatever it is and try to make it better and never stop. So I love my country

I've since come to the conclusion that if I feel that way about someplace, it says more about my own ignorance of it than its actual characteristics.
