Ditzy Twits vocalist Natalie Maines can’t seem to figure out why patriotism matters.
“The entire country may disagree with me, but I don’t understand the necessity for patriotism,” Maines resumes, through gritted teeth. “Why do you have
to be a patriot? About what? This land is our land? Why? You can like where you live and like your life, but as for loving the whole country… I don’t see
why people care about patriotism.”
Maybe people care about patriotism because it’s the normal thing for people of any given nation to do?
in another time an place, we would call that nationalism.
But since you really don’t care about that sort of thing, and it makes you so mad, I just thought I’d let you know there’s a border crossing up north, where friendly Canadians will be waiting for you, and they’ll be glad to help you renounce your citizenship.
Just make sure to convert all your American dollars to Canadian ones when you’ve settled in, K?
