Patriotism, as the saying goes, is the last refuge of scoundrels. And in this case, patriotism is being glorified by scoundrels to get people to do what they wouldn't do otherwise-to voluntarily give up their rights and freedoms to the state at an alarming rate. Those who are so quick to wave the flag and willingly submit to such restrictive measures often forget that patriotism has been misused by tyrants down through history. Hitler was a great patriot and encouraged patriotism throughout Germany. The communists were also great patriots. But the fruits of their patriotism were bad, as these will be.
