Patriotism too is a narrow mindedness, a narrow mindedness that we hesitate to admit though!
Otherwise this whole world is ONE, Humanity is one. National boundaries are just an imaginary line or a line where our tired and stupid forefathers stopped fighting! The concept of patriotism has been glorified by politicians and rulers to glamorize VIOLENCE in war.... to give a legitimacy to the most idiotic human activity called war. That is necessary to obtain enough young men to fight and kill in wars!
