Has the U.S. patriotism ended or is it just hiding?
i used to love how patriotic americans were when I was younger. now it's kind of a joke. why has it changed and will it ever come back?
Patriotism is waning due to all the unnecessary wars the USA keep entering into. I still chuckle about Barack Obama being awarded a Nobel Prize. He needs to learn how to compromise without being "compromised." In the military complex, greed has replaced patriotism. That is happening it seems to me.
The concept of Patriotism was perverted to nearly unrecognisable levels purposefully by the Bushco "patriot act."
So I suppose I should redefine patriotism - In the United States, patriotism is an allegiance to The United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights - patriotism can NOT exist in un Constitutional forms in this nation. Therefore, anyone who enforces, supports, or fails to express dissent over un Constitutional assaults against the rights of citizens (such as the "patriot" act) can NOT be a Patriot.
The two largest surges of patriotism that I have seen in my lifetime were when Ronald Reagan was elected president and right after 9-11. So it appears to wax and wane with the times. It appears to surge after America has been at a low point. So, I think you will see a resurgence of patriotism. In the 1960s and 70s, patriotism was a joke and people that were patriotic were portrayed as morons on television during that time (ie "Frank Burns" on M*A*S*H). But some of that has changed and it will probably change again.
