Readers of our blog know that we are the authority on many of the cultural topics related to sexual equality and the changes taking place in our society. So when our site was penalized by Google, we at first thought it might have been a hate attack. We now know that it was caused by bad seo and we are in the process of removing problem links and doing whatever is necessary as we’re unwinding google penalties that suppress our visibility. Please stand by as we recover our former stature.
National Pride is love and devotion to one’s country, and reinforces the alliance of all citizens of this country who share the same values. It is also known as Patriotism. And, as long as pride is involved in a subject, it looks that both positive and negative connotations exist.
Mainly, national pride is love for your own country, even though there’s no need to agree with everything that your country does. We can also call national pride, nationalism, because national pride is also a political ideology.
National pride is different depending on the countries too.
As an example, French citizens are so proud of their country that it looks excessive in the eyes of anybody else. As a result, they defend their country whether they agree with the political views or decisions, and they protect their patrimony as much as possible without forgetting about their history that has made of them the country that we know today.
In the United States of America, national pride has another dimension. It even looks like any negative event happening against their country (here, we’re mainly thinking about the terrorist attacks of 09/11) that it reinforces the love for their nation. American citizens particularly fight for human rights and about the fact that all men are created equal and about liberty. And even today, young Americans do not hesitate to join the army and show their national pride all over the world.
But for some people, National pride is compared to racism, insisting on the fact that a person has more moral duties to fellow members of the the national community than to non-members. Unfortunately, racism is in every country, and it should not be associated to the national pride, which brings this idea into general use.
Finally, national pride can have a religious consonance, but only when talking about certain countries like Israel or India. These two countries consider that they belong to their holy place, or motherland. This is another version of national pride, strengthened by the adherence to a native religion.
No matter how you look at it national pride is a great thing & more people should ask what they can do to make their country great again.
