How can you be "proud of your country" or "proud of your race" when you never had any control over that?
Isn't it better to be proud of things you actually accomplished yourself?
Excessive pride on race/family is just a crutch for those with low self esteem. That's why its so prevalent on 4chan and internet forums in general.
Normal people think "I did x. I am smart".
/pol/ think "Some one who looks like me did x. We are smart."
It's a way to take credit and boost self esteem while still being a fuckup. It's why most racists are working class.
I too am proud of my higher aspirations, which include choosing which groups of people to hate.
this is why i loathe "intellectuals"
unless you are 100% individualistic, self-concerned person you are awful in their eyes, it's the mindset of Leon Trotsky and why he was so angered at those dumb pesants and their "traditions" and "ancestors"
I see posts like that uttered almost every week irl, by politicians and faggots in general, it is always the same and it is always a step further every time, i have heard my entire life that Swedes don't exist and this is just a landmass and you shouldn't ponder or revere what your ancestors have built.
