i am a newbie to mylot and so i decided to acquaint myself to the discussions and comments going around here.And then when i read some of them,this question popped in my head. Do you believe that your country is the best in the world and argue with anyone who daresay otherwise or do you willingly accept the flaws of your country ? Do you love your countrymen or share a larger love for mankind as a whole. as for me, i had this hypernationalist attitude and then i happened to read a comment by an author saying that she pities those who are limited in their love for this world by man made borders. this changed my outlook to a great extent.i still love my country but i also try not to turn a blind eye to its flaws. i believe nothing is perfect ,not even countries.

Maybe there is a perfect country on the world, but I haven't found it yet. For me, any country has got something special and something positive, also maybe something wrong. I try to stay open minded and to learn from other countries and their people. So I like to find all the positive points in each country, it's culture and their people.
Look I love my country and am proud of it but I am not blind to its flaws. I accept the flaws whenever someone mention it, if relevant and correct it, when it is not. Personally, I see a lot of scope of improvement for my country. So, I can't say that my country is the best when it is not. It has pretty unique qualities which are commendable but still its not perfect. Besides I am more for humanity as a whole! Country, religion comes later in my list!
i think, maybe the people are so much frustrated with their situations ,that they want to believe in something extraordinary and perfect ,thus turning everything (be it a person or a country or a religion )into shades of black and white .They dont understand the concept of" shades of grey".
@fuddhu They are not open to change and believe whatever they are told. For example: Take the "Gurus" and "Saints". They have so much following and people have blind faith in them even though they are accused with such heinous crimes and take money from general public.
