There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged.

I've seen some suggest it's just an offshoot of evil nationalism which is just a hairs breadth away from racism. Seems like some liberals argue favorably for patriotism only when they're accused of being less patriotic than conservatives.
