I am not denouncing.  I am disagreeing.
Disagreeing with what, exactly?

Do you like your country?
Do you mean to ask whether I lead a comfortable and satisfying life in my country or whether I am proud of my country's current acknowledgment of responsibility in the world?

I agree. I went to America for a week, and it was pretty awful.

It doesn't matter who has the "prettiest" country. All that matters in the end is who can kick who's ass.

Disagreeing that people are laughing at America when in all honesty they are actually jealous of it.

Come on Oscar, your not running for office here.  Do you like your country?


Watch, it's easy.

Hey Wardogg, do you like your country?

Hell yes.  America is the greatest country on the planet.

And that's how everyone should respond?

The quality of life in my country is obscenely greater than most others and I consider myself fortunate and privileged to have been born where I was and allowed to live the life I've been leading. However, I do not feel that this makes me or the state under which I live superior to any other. Indeed, there have been times where I find myself physically ill at the contrast between my decadence in comparison to, for example, an emaciated child in Africa and I am unable to bring myself to wave a flag and declare my nation's greatness when we are doing so little to help others.

We are citizens of circumstance, nothing more.

Because the answer is more complicated than that.

You would fit in well with the liberals here.  They think that question is complicated as well.

Either you stand behind your countries foundation, morals, and values, or you don't.  Citizens of circumstance aside.  I think you could move if you didn't like your countries views.  Except maybe the N Koreans.

Don't use words you don't know the meaning to.  It makes you look stupid.

Fallacy is like, an elementary school word. How wouldn't I know its meaning?

Um that wasn't your question. "Do you like your country" doesn't easily translate into a yes or a no.

I like living in my country for a number of reasons, and I dislike the political views of those in power. So, how would I answer?

1.8 million legal and illegal each year settle in the U.S.  Interesting, for sure.

To be fair, the illegals don't have much of an option. If they could walk across the border to any country, you can't be sure they'd all pick America.

One's country doesn't always live up to these things. I like my country because it is peaceful and quiet and I may pursue literature and culture unmolested. Does this mean that I would die in a foreign desert for its economic interests? No.

I am opposed to the state in general anyway.

I don't know how you can answer anything other than a yes or no to my question.  Do you wish to move out of your country?

Your right.  They could go south.  For some reason they don't.

You bring up a good point here.  Lets throw out the "economic intrest" and insert whatever else you want there.  Do I think everyone that does not do time in the military doesn't like their country?  Of course not.  That's absurd.  There is something in a few of us that feel the nation's protection is up to us.  But it by no means, means that if you aren't willing to die for it then you don't like your country.  You can be patriotic without military service.

Ideally, I'd like to go back to South Africa, but it's pretty shit there at the moment and I don't want to move right into the middle of a bloodfest. So I'm thinking of going to Europe instead. Whenever things settle down in South Africa, though, I'd love to go back to live in Cape Town, it's a great city.

Why?  What makes it a great city?  Do you consider yourself a South African, considering you were born there?
