I am told that it is important that I love my country. Why is it important that I love my country?
What constitutes "my country?"
Is it the landmass?
Is it the people who live within it's borders?
Is it the way of life?
Is it our form of government?
Is it our government itself?
Is it all of these or is it something else?
Can patriotism change over time? If things about the country change, then is it not logical that people's feelings of patriotism will change?
