Does patriotism still matter?
It matters to the extent that you are a member of a group of individuals for which such applies (e.g. its largely moot in cases of totalitarianism as morale is not necessarily a critical factor), and you are alligned with said group of individuals (e.g. if you are an anarchist or counter-culture insurgent, then obviously patriotism is not really a consideration). If these conditions are satisfied, patriotism matters greatly in that is essentially high morale and support in service of the larger group. The exception would be if the group was composed on entities lacking emotion as then morale is irrelevant and support would be expended in a purely utilitarian manner...for example a group of non-emotional robots would have no such thing as patriotism. Patriotism Matters Yes, it does. Patriotism is very important. Yes, patriotism still matters because you should care about your country, love it and respect it, just like the Americans who put their lives on the line. Yes. To love ones country is important, but there can be an over-use of patriotism to the point it is bad. The perfect example of this is when it is transferred from the overall nation to one man. This happened in Germany in the 1930's, in China, and can be seen today in North Korea. Yes- Be proud of the country that made you who you are, And if you do not agree with the practices and culture of your country, you should get out and live somewhere else. Yes, patriotism does still matter because you should care about your country love it and respect it just like the Americans who put their lives on the line. It matters because the definition of patriotism itself just keeps refering to the United States and our founding fathers and leaders, and government, our troops, war, freedom, the fifty states, the thirteen colonies, the flag. If you ask yourself how other countries are limited to what they can do, it helps alot. We can work and get paid, go to school, actually leave the country,and live in decent communities. We fought the war and won! We battled and conquered and won the freedom and individuality for every human being in the country of the United States. Yes it does because: Displays of true patriotism are shown in times of despair, such as wars and terrorist attacks. Some people believe that showing patriotism can be accomplished by waving the flag and singing the national anthem. Others believe that a person must be much more involved in a cause to show patriotism. It is true that waving a flag doesn't accomplish much. Although this action displays good intentions, it can be done with little effort or thought. Patriotism is much more than waving the flag and singing the national anthem. These actions promote unity. However, love for the country can be focused in ways that are much more productive. Patriotism can no longer be defined by whether you think this is the greatest country in the world. An act of patriotism must accomplish something. Yes and no. To an extent, Patriotism does matter as it give people a reason to keep fighting even when all seems lost. It inspires individuals to take pride in their country, and gives individuals a sense of unity and belonging. However, excessive Patriotism, just like excessive pride or excessive greed, can result in negative consequences. For example, it readily leads to the radical idea that Americans are naturally superior and all foreigners are inherently inferior, resulting in racism. An extreme degree of nationalism can also develop into Fascism. OPINION: Whether or not patriotism matters is based solely on the person who is making the judgement. It is my opinion that patriotism is rarely needed nowadays with how connected the world is. Blind patriotism can be harmful and cause people to do bad things in the name of their country. A country is just a piece of land that has borders created by people in the past. Sometimes it's good to look outside of your country and see how others live.

Asked in World War 2, Holocaust, Germany in WW2
How did the Holocaust make you feel?
The Holocaust can cause many feelings, ranging from Anger and Sadness to Confusion and Doubt. Most Germans were unaware of the Holocausts existence as it was carried out, so their feelings as it was uncovered was largely a collective feeling of Denial, Guilt and Betrayal, that still shapes their collective identity as Germans today, according to psychologists.
