What if the central antagonism of good persons were between patriots and individuals?
There are no “patriot rights.” I have never heard a coherent case for such a thing. But there are individual rights, no? The patriot lays down his life for the greater good, and it is the individual, who looks at the patriot with gimlet eye, who benefits.
Play your roles carefully. The more patriots who identify as individuals the better, no?
But how many individuals must identify themselves as patriots?
