Patriotism and Global Humanity

“I have never believed that because a man loves his country he cannot also love his children, nor can I see why any form of internationalism, whether of the intellect or of class interests, should be irreconcilable with patriotism. I go farther, and say, after carefully searching my own conscience, that this presumed antinomy has no real existence at all. It is a poor heart that cannot find room for more than one kind of affection.”

– Excerpt fromStrange Defeatby Marc Bloch
