This article was one of the very first articles that I had written on Politicoid. It was, and still is quite short, but I’ve found that for some reason, it is a popular landing page.

Nationalism vs Patriotism: What is the Difference? (Old)
Are you a nationalist or a patriot? What’s the difference? Well at first glance they may seem similar, but there is a major difference between what drives these two types of people. A nationalist follows with blind faith, while a patriot does what he or she does because it is right. The patriot will always love his or her country, but will not always love or even tolerate what that country is doing. A nationalist will not realize that what the country is doing is wrong, while a patriot will always attempt to stop the beloved country from doing wrong.
