Does Patriotism Matter? - Thomas Sowell - Page 1

An older, but very interesting column
Does Patriotism Matter? - Thomas Sowell - Page 1: "Perhaps nowhere was patriotism so downplayed or deplored than among intellectuals in the Western democracies in the two decades after the horrors of the First World War, fought under various nations' banners of patriotism.

In France, after the First World War, the teachers' unions launched a systematic purge of textbooks, in order to promote internationalism and pacifism."
