Maybe technically, yes, but today patriotism is linked to right wings and most patriots are right wing. Either that or they claim to be apolitical when in fact they share beliefs with many extremist right wings. I came by this forum where a couple of "punks" talked about white pride and how they`re not racist but "proud of their colour". Its such a joke. I really hope that won`t catch on among the younger ones. They even have a "white pride worldwide" group. Freedom of speech is all good and well, but your freedom stops where it exceeds others freedom. Thats just how it is to live in a society, you have to take others into consideration. Nothing good ever comes out of patriotism. Being born white, american, italian, indian, whatever, is nothing to take pride in. That is no accomplishment in my eyes. Also off-topic, but the meanings of words and symbols change. It doesn`t matter what the swastika meant or which way it used to look, fact is that most associate it with nazism and you will probably get a lot of shit for getting it tattooed on your arm. Stop doing that, seriously. Its obviously just to shock people. Same goes for patriotism, might have started out as an innocent thing(haha, hardly), but its not a good word anymore. Oh and to hell with condemned 84. Too bad they`re assholes, they could have been an alright band.
