American Patriotism's Decline

Patriotism is a growing concern in our nation today. It is the relationship to the nation as an abstract value community that today may be at risk of being disrupted or eroded. That is not all it can be. Despite the over-rationalised expectations favoured by the internationalist perspectives of the left," argued the late Stuart Hall in Our Mongrel Selves, nationalism is not only not a spent force.

The flowering of a rightly ordered patriotism is therefore wider than one's own fatherland alone and seeks relations of that land to the wider human community and world—hence the manner in which modern papal teaching emphasizes at every turn the balance between a sane nationalism and a humane internationalism.

Patriotism, for example, is an older terminology that has a much more intimate connection with both the state and religious language, whereas nationalism has closer connections to modernity and secularism. But we also are citizens (or resident aliens) of an earthly nation-state, such as the United States.

As the boat began to sink into the cold waters of the Atlantic, four American chaplains on board helped other soldiers board lifeboats and gave up their own life jackets when the supply ran out. Today 99% of Americans know that they can enjoy all of the freedoms of living in America without ever being in 'harms way' for one second.

David Miller (Miller, 2004, pp. 323-325) names the following features as essential to all national communities that are to be distinguished from any other communities and collective identities: (1) conviction of the existence of a nation; (2) feeling of common identity ('the possession of a national history, and consequent community of recollections; collective pride and humiliation, pleasure and regret, connected with the same incidents in the past'); (3) common active identity (members of a nation do some things together); (4) defined place; (5) characteristic features that allow to single out inhabitants of one community from the others.

That is a true sentiment which makes us feel that we do not love our country less, but more, because we have laid up in our minds the knowledge of other lands and other institutions and other races, and have had enkindled afresh within us the instinct of a common humanity, and of the universal beneficence of the Creator.
