What is True Patriotism?
Has the right hijacked patriotism? Has the left ceded it? Does wearing a flag lapel pin make you a true patriot? Is dissenting against a war truly patriotic? Who decides? Written by former speechwriter and senior domestic policy advisor to President Clinton, Eric Liu, and Seattle-based entrepreneur and philanthropist, Nick Hanauer, The True Patriot argues that in these cynical times there should be a higher call: to country first. The True Patriot urges us to reconnect with our original and patriotic traditions - country above self, contribution above consumption, stewardship over exploitation, and freedom with responsibility.
