Nisam sigurna da svi govorimo o istom. Pitanje je bilo o patriotizmu, ne o nacionalizmu. Mozda su nekom te dvije stvari jedno te isto (a cini se da su prije i bile, vidi dolje), meni nisu. Kao sto sam vec naglasila, smatram se patriotom, ali ne i nacionalistom, i to bas zbog toga sto nacionalizam ukljucuje ideju da je vlastita nacija najbolja i najvaznija.
Citiram iz definicije koju je stavio Mad Nomad:
"a sense of national consciousness exalting one nation above all others and placing primary emphasis on promotion of its culture and interests as opposed to those of other nations or supranational groups"

Patriotizam nuzno ne ukljucuje politicke ideologije; nacionalizam je za iste usko vezan.

Oxford English Dictionary daje ove definicije:

patriot:
2. a. One who disinterestedly or self-sacrificingly exerts himself to promote the wellbeing of his country; ‘one whose ruling passion is the love of his country’ (J.); one who maintains and defends his country's freedom or rights.

patriotism:
The character or passion of a patriot; love of or zealous devotion to one's country.

nationalism:
1. a. Advocacy of or support for the interests of one's own nation, esp. to the exclusion or detriment of the interests of other nations. Also: advocacy of or support for national independence or self-determination.
Whereas patriotism usually refers to a general sentiment, nationalism now usually refers to a specific ideology, esp. one expressed through political activism.In earlier use, however, the two appear to have been more or less interchangeable.
