"Nationalism is the root of all evil."
 
"And Patriotism is the conviction that your country is superior to all other countries because you were born in it." - George Bernard Shaw
 
I don't think many people get the above quotes at all.

bulls**t........religious preachings and racism are the real evils, not nationalism........we are not living in an ideal world........without nationalism, you wouldn't be able to step out of your house and buy an icecream........nationalism is the root cause of national protection from evil forces........if all the soldiers across the borders were not nationalistic, imagine the state of the country........

there should also not be any effing problem if one boasts about his/her nation........it does not necessarily involve any criticism over other nations........stating facts and praising the motherland on a great day for the nation, what way are you bothered here?

i would appreciate if somebody introduces me to something which their nation(or individuals of their nation) proudly achieved something for the sake of humanity and superior social living........

Favorite quote of 2011:

If I remember right, this is certainly more apt considering your current domicile and political affiliation....


"There's not much left to say." -- Rod Blagojevich, former Illinois governor, following conviction on 17 counts of corruption, including trying to sell Senate seat formerly held by President Obama.

In a state of tranquillity, wealth, and luxury, our descendants would forget the arts of war* and the noble activity and zeal which made their ancestors invincible. Every art of corruption would be employed to loosen the bond of union which renders our resistance formidable. When the spirit of liberty, which now animates our hearts and gives success to our arms*, is extinct, our numbers will accelerate our ruin and render us easier victims to tyranny.  If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquillity of servitude than the animating contest of freedom—go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen!

That's quite a strong statement. I admire the strength of conviction in these words of Mr. Adams! :)

Strong words from intelligent leaders.
Where is this type of leader now?
Certainly not amongst the current crop of Repubs & Dems in D.C. :(





Mr. President, it is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and, having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.
Is security so dear, or wealth so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!

Patrick Henry



Accept personal responsibility.
Live with integrity.
Cast off the chains of collectivism.

Here’s a quotation from an American president. Who do you think it was?

The lessons of history, confirmed by the evidence immediately before me, show conclusively that continued dependence upon relief induces a spiritual and moral disintegration fundamentally destructive to the national fibre. To dole out relief in this way is to administer a narcotic, a subtle destroyer of the human spirit. It is inimical to the dictates of sound policy. It is in violation of the traditions of America.

"We have 700,000 graduates every year. If we don’t find jobs for them, we will have another revolt. When you have a growing youth population in an emerging economy coupled with unemployment and inflation, you have a ticking time bomb." - Karim Helal, board member of CI Capital in Cairo, on youth unemployment in Egypt.
