"Patriotism isn't the same as nationalism. The former is a healthy love and respect for your country, but the latter is blind, total, and unrestricted support for any and all legislation, policies, or activities of a nation. Nationalism is the extreme, whereas patriotism is the goal, because good patriots know when to challenge their political leaders, laws, and policies when they become unjust or immoral."

I can't help but be amused by the definition of nationalism since nationalism has been a cause of many civil wars and revolutions. Nationalism is the blind belief that everything outside of one's nation is a detriment to it and must be kept out or made the same as their nation - hence its links to racism, xenophobia, isolationism, expansionism, and obsession with soveignty.
