Indeed.
I'm not sure what you're trying to say - but the difference between myself and the people who take pride in their nation, is that I don't take pride in my nation.

I recognise that we're all human and subject to a whole lot of nasty shit, and if my nation had been the most powerful in the world - it would be just as corrupt and pathetically distasteful as yours is. It's the nature of power and human beings when mixed.

So, how about being a bit of a grown-up and stop being proud of corruption, greed and incompetence?
