Patriotism -> Matriotism

When you discovery your shortcommings, you can use them to pave your way.

William Blum states in an article written for the 4th of July,
”I’m sick and tired of this thing called “patriotism”.”

I wonder if he says, when he falls, ”I’m sick and tired of this thing called gravity.”
Patriotism is a biological response to a threat against one’s community, a primitive response as natural to biological creatures as gravity is to the laws of physics. A community can survive the death of individuals, but no individual survives the death of the community. That which Blum and many of his peers complain about is not patriotism, but the owners of society appropriating the natural tendency to defend one’s community and employing it in the defense of their own interests. This has been done for thousands of years and will continue until we see that the owners of the community defend nothing beyond their own power and wealth. Our community and theirs are two different groups in opposition to each other. When we the people, the subjects of the rulers, couple our patriot response to our own community, the community of citizens, the power of true patriotism will shatter the chains of obedience to our owners who illegitimately award themselves the right to represent and rule us by virtue of their wealth and their spectacular illusions of democracy.

Blum and those who are ”sick and tired” of patriotism are actually declaring that they are sick and tired of patriotism being debased with nationalism and used in the service of despots, tyrants, plutocrats and all manner of imperial rulers wrapped in ”patriotic” robes. Perhaps it’s time to abandon the term patriotism (defense of the fatherland) and embrace the term matriotism (defense of mother earth) for the community of humanity.

Matriots of the world unite! You have nothing to lose but your illusions and obedience.
