Misguided patriotism. Lets not go the way of America.
It is funny, I remember my parents in the late 60,s almost envying American patriotism and saying "we really need a bit more of that here" but all these years later the patriotsm displayed now has this really dark side. As said in the original post what makes us think this stuff is unique, I find the same thing on anything related to "values". Ours are often the same as anyone elses in the main.
