Patriotism is very murky.
Take my family history for example, I had ancestor's and kin involved in every conflict of the US starting with the Revolution(One even recieved a government pension.
But that's not all. I can trace my scottish heritage all the way back to 1129 Ad. An ancestor was the first scottish noble to join with William Wallace and was Robert The Bruces second in command.
My family married with the scottish royal family 12 times and the English royal family once.
We faught in France as Generals under Joan of Arc.
I have family spread all over the world(And genetic testing has shown that members of a clan are related)
Oh and Keither Sutherland is a cousin
So what are your loyalties? Family? Nation of birth? Friends?
