Constitutional Patriotism

  1. Recognition that patriotism could be practiced at multiple levels. (I find this very significant today)
  2. Recognition that no state/religion/culture is perfect and flawless; thus there is no doubt on the necessity for porous boundaries and inter-connectedness.
  3. Ability to feel shame at the failures of our society, culture and traditions and a willingness to correct them. (No past glorification for political gains)
  4. Ability to root in our own culture with a readiness to learn from others (roots and wings)
