On nationalism and criticizing your own country

Standard

“ It’s good to love your country. But it’s also fine to sometimes dislike what it does; to criticise it; to hold it up to global standards and – when it commits injustice – to demand its punishment and sanction within the global system (…) In its place, it is the culture of what the management theorist Peter Drucker once called ‘the universal educated person’ that must be our bulwark to nationalism, exclusionism and theories of ethnic supremacy ”

Paul Mason, ‘Theresa May says Corbyn hates Britain but she is the one who doesn’t understand it’, The Guardian
