Patriotism

Patriots love their country and show special concern for their compatriots. But is patriotism morally legitimate? Loyalty to country or nation seems to be a powerful value, but putting your country first seems to violate equal concern for all human beings. How should we think about patriotism? 

Dr. Charles Jones is a professor of political science at Western University. He specializes in contemporary political theory and the history of political thought, with an emphasis on global justice, human rights, freedom, and equality - all important Humanist topics!
