    It's meaningless any way you slice it.

    Most people who just happen to be born on a patch of dirt in this country are "proud" of it

    Most people who are born on a patch of dirt, are proud of the community they are raised to be a part of.


    That is normal, healthy human behavior.


    NOT being proud of the group you are part of, is not sophistication, but the sign of a declining culture.

    I disagree.

    What is there to be proud of in whatever culture or moral system you have been indoctrinated in?

    Pride goeth before a fall. Gratefulness is enduring.
