    Am I proud of Denmark.. sure, but I am also critical of many aspects of Danish society. But no I am not a blind follower of my country regardless of what she does or says..

    I was very proud of my country as a kid, and then I grew up.

    I'm proud of the country and not proud of the state.
    But considering the pressure from the high powers of the world (geopolitics), I guess that's somewhat normal.

    I'm quite proud of my country, sure, our history is short and incredibly racist, our politics are the most boring in the world, and our culture consists of alcohol, bad food and melanoma, but I'm proud of everything else.

    (Please indicate your nationality and tell us either why you're proud of your country or why you're not proud and why it would be ridiculous to be proud of your country. Thank you.)
    I am proud to be an American. America is the greatest nation in the history of mankind, a beacon of freedom, a shining city on a hill, the defender of Liberty and liberator of nations. We have been to the moon and the depths of the oceans: We have liberated continents from fascism and spread liberty around the globe. In times of disaster, we are the most generous nation giving aid and comfort to victims. Despite our problems, I would never live anywhere else.

    Well, the poll was for non-Americans. But feel free to comment about whether you agree with the statement that people who like their country find it ridiculous to be proud from being from that country. The sense I get from my unscientific poll is this is not a ridiculous concept to non-Americans:

    Well, of course. Patriotism is alive and well across the world. It just takes different shapes here and there.

    Some of it is also just plain garbage.

    Think about it: If you live is Somalia, or Red China, what the hell would you have to be patriotic about? The Germans under Hitler were highly patriotic, with grand parades and rallys and so forth. But what were they celebrating? The Soviets made a great show of patriotism. To what end?
