No - patriotism and nationalism ARE the same thing. The fact you try to differentiate between the two to try and justify how nationalistic America is - concerns me.
Wikipedia is your friend. "Although used in certain vernaculars as a synonym for nationalism, nationalism is not considered an inherent part of patriotism."

No, they are not the same thing.

I think China is sort of "nationalistic".
Whenever I talk to a person from China,
it's likely that he/she always makes comments
in support of the Chinese Communist.
Whenever you try to say something negative
about the Communist, the people from China
will naturally defend the Communist, and get
mad at you. Whenever you say something
good about His Holyness Dalai Lama, the
people from China will react strongly to that
and tell you that Dalai Lama is a secessionist
that endeavours to pull Tibet away from China.

Def true. PRC people are very nationalistic and patriotic. I'd say South Koreans are even more so :eek:

From my observation, South Koreans do have quite a strong
sense of patriotism. This might be because South Korean males
are required to go through compulsory military service. This
makes South Koreans feel more strongly that it is their duty
and obligation to serve and defend the country.

Also, I think another reason why the South Koreans feel that
they need to care about their country is that they are surrounded
by enemies and have, to a certain extent, the feeling of insecurity.
They have the Communist North Korea to the north. They are
also surrounded by China, Japan and Russia, which had bullied
them for many times throughout history.

Nonetheless, I find the patriotism of the South Koreans more
rational and sensible than that of the PRC Chinese. (Here "PRC
Chinese" doesn't include the people from Taiwan and Hong Kong.)
I have an impression that the PRC Chinese just always blindly supports
the PRC regime, and are kind of indoctrinated by the communist
propaganda.

He IS a secessionist and would love to split Tibet off from China.
After all, he was the absolute temporal and spiritual ruler of Tibet until a few decades ago.

But it looks like he has been trying to solve the problem peacefully with China.
He actually had renounced independence as the ultimate goal.
That might be the reason why he got a Nobel Peace Prize.

But even if he were a secessionist, a civilised society should respect the freedom
of expression.

Hey Joluk,

You may be right about American nationalism, but you are wrong about "saluting the flag."

I have never once saluted the flag - nor have I ever been combelled nor required to.

Quite a difficult one.

My guesses would be North Korea, South Korea, China, USA and of course Scotland.

The Koreans and Chinese 'outnationalise' them

I'd even say the English are more nationalistic than the French.

North Korea should be somewhere up the top. I voted USA however... though I voted too quickly, otherwise I would have said NK!

You have missed out the most nationalistic country in the world: Turkey. It is a terrifyingly nationalistic country. Indeed, those who 'insult Turkishness' or the Republic and its institutions, you face lengthy prison sentences.

USA, a lot of the people I've met there actually believe that they're better than people in other countries.

I wish Chinese in general would have a more open minded approach about their country- and less of this victim complex.
