Patriotism Redefined

Is pinning down what it means to be “patriotic” more difficult these days? Is it more patriotic to 1) behave, do as you are told, get in line, put your hand on your heart and play some of that Toby Keith bomb-droppin country-rock… or

2) speak out, demonstrate and resist, take collective action with like-minded others and try to draw attention to inequity and injustice?

We are living in a time when the vast majority of people living in this nation find themselves led by an entitled super-minority and the apoligist policymakers they’ve enlisted. Meanwhile, the truth of this all, is diluted or avoided by press and media owned-not truly free.
