I mean for people who intend to work abroad to look for greener pasteur for his family...can we consider him as less patriotic just because he left his country of birth and opt to work in another? This question struck me because nowadays, it is common for people to work abroad to earn a living. However, a student asked me about it and my reply was a NO. Leaving one's country to work in another does not mean being unpatriotic. In fact, even while in a foreign land, people can still be patriotic in thought, in word and in deed. What do you think?

No. Leaving one's country doesn't make you less patriotic. If you leave your country it is because you have to help those people who have remained in your country. It's actually being patriotic because though you are not in your native country, you are still indirectly helping it through various means.
