Thread Name: BS: Patriotism -- what is it?
Subject: RE: BS: Patriotism -- what is it?
Adlai Stevenson and Nurse Cavell were what I would call pretty good people, and pretty enlightened too.
Terran patriotism would become a normal thing, if we were confronted with visitors from space (openly and officially, I mean, so no one could doubt that they were there...), and...if we had a truly united society with the same rights, benefits, and privileges everywhere.
If I may quote Picard, it's time to "make it so".
