Subject: RE: Politically incorrect national anthems 2
A lot of people are missing the point that, in the WWII era, the "enemy" was of an extreme right-wing orientation. It was, therefore, proper for a Good Liberal to be patriotic to the point of jingoism. Patriotism only became unpopular among Good Liberals during the cold war era, when the "enemy" was from the far Left. If we get another facistic power arising as a threat, liberals will doubtless become patriotic again, like so many Aspens wafting this way and that with the breeze.
