A Sobering Thought for Today

"And I wondered, not for the first time, what patriotism is, what the love of country truly consists of, how that yearning loyalty that had shaken my friend's voice arises, and how so real a love can become, too often, so foolish and vile a bigotry. Where does it go wrong?"

~ Genly Ai, from Ursula K. Le Guin's The Left Hand of Darkness
