Emma Goldman

“Patriotism assumes that our globe is divided into little spots, each one surrounded by an iron gate. Those who have had the fortune of being born on some particular spot consider themselves better, nobler, grander, more intelligent than the living beings inhabiting any other spot. It is, therefore, the duty of everyone living on that chosen spot to fight, kill, and die in the attempt to impose [their] superiority upon all others. The inhabitants of the other spots reason in like manner, of course.”

Emma Goldman, “Patriotism”
