Alec Russell: Lets get patriotic

Alec Russell over at the London Telegraph encourages his fellow Brits to take a page out of America's playbook and become more patriotic.

The problem is not just in Britain. Europe as a whole has lost a sense of its identity. The spirit of Rome and Greece has been extinguished in favor of the spirit of Marx and Nieztsche.

This is the root of the crisis of the West. Those of us who live in the Western world are supposed to feel perpetually guilty about our colonialism, supposed imperialism, and slavery. This is of course insincere. Every civilization has practiced imperialism, slavery, and colonialism.

Listen people, buck up and get some pride.
