Patriotism is Cultism

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared by the page, “Voting is Violence,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…

"Patriotism is an immoral feeling because, instead of confessing himself a son of God... or even a fee man guided by his own reason, each man, under the influence of patriotism confesses himself the son of his fatherland and the slave of his government, and commits actions contrary to his reason and conscience." - Leo Tolstoy

My Commentary: Statism is a cult!
