    After reading some of Patriotism? -thread, I thought to ask it in a simple manner. So, do you count yourself to be patriotic or not? If yes, would you go to war if the call came?

    Myself, I wouldn't go to the frontier even if Finland was the defending country. Help behind the lines, maybe; but wouldn't risk my life for it. I'm not patriotic in any other ways either, and I think it is rather odd to "worship" your country like some strange idol or a moral symbol. That is what I think, but what is your opinion? Unlike in AoDA, I'm just wishing that you tell your personal opinion, not question others.

    I would go to the front line but I wouldn't fight for any flag or ideology, I would fight just for my self and my loved ones.

    The only time I am patriotic are when Sweden plays football(the real thing), and even then, if Italy and Sweden meets, I cheer for Italy.

    No. It just isn't right by me... Never been into devoting myself blindly to a thing, without questioning it.

    Absolutely; I have no idea why, but I'd fight for my country if need be.

    Patriotic? Yes.

    Fanatical country-worship? Not even.

    Ditto what Falstaff said. Extremely patriotic, adamantly anti-nationalistic, and highly pro-those-who-know-the-difference. ;)

    I'm gonna love it when Sarevok Anchev finally backs up his unpatriotic bollocks and leaves England.

    His complete and utter, not only unpatriotism, but actually disdain for his own country as absolutely unexcusable.

    I dare you to go into a pub, go up to a group of lads and start ripping England. I double dare you mother ****er. :D .

    England's great. Wouldn't want to live anywhere else I can think of. Anywhere *real* at least.

    I wouldn't go to the front line, but no because I'm not patriotic but because I'd be bloody useless as a soldier and probably do more harm than good to the cause. I'd be better off in the back row building sheds or fixing tanks than up front getting in the way of the real soldiers.

    Who has remained independent? Independent from whom? The Normans? The Saxons? The Vikings? The Romans? The Celts?
